    Yes, i have. I have bought a 11BBS T shirt there. It had a tag in, with made in China. This is clearly wrong.

    I believe the problems lies in the fact that they buy old stock. If one of their supplier has a fake item, they might not spot it and resell it on their website.

    I buy there regularly and had it only 1 time, that i questioned an item.

    Concerning the Mastadon. I have seen this more often. There is more on this on the RO facebook group.

    Yeah I hesitated to say but yes so fake now. BTW about the "11 by BBS Dark" thing... This is beyond fake, this is re-invention, by those Taobao genius in China, your jackets are still pretty moderate ones in terms of creativity. Check these out:

    Shit, even the lamest fake 11's I saw around here were labelled "Made in Portugal".

    Could anyone check these Guidi 792V for me? Album

    The insole throws me off the most; it's hard, solid leather (presumably), feels like wood, and has rather crudely hewn edges.

    Also, the ridges on the vibram outsole are also very deep at the toe, unlike every single vibrammed model I can find photos of, which have shallow ridges at the toe like this: Link. (Is it even a possibility that a different outsole might be used due to e.g. shortage?)

    Leather doesn't feel bad, but not like what I'd expect of Guidi either. Though, presumably they're polished calf, which I haven't handled before.

    Pretty sure they are fake too...the guidi insole is usually attached with spikes and the leather quality seems very far from guidi one...have you used "certilogo app"? it's the best thing to do

    That's what I'd feared.

    I did get them from Grailed indeed. The seller has good feedback and doesn't seem particularly shady in our interactions, and while unable to produce any proof of purchase (and Certilogo only started this past AW17), indicates he'd bought them late 2016 at Hotoveli. I wonder if it's possible a fake could sneak it's way into their inventory, perhaps through a customer's exchange or somesuch?

    I'm still not entirely certain though; for the polished calf version, it would seem the leather isn't subjected to the same extent of washing/treatment more typical Guidi leathers are, allowing for the much cleaner look. That could be why the leather isn't as great.

    I can also say that the insole doesn't seem to be nailed on the 792V, and perhaps other Vibram models; I previously missized a Donkey copy off SSENSE which didn't have them either. The bizarro feel of this insole just doesn't seem right at all though (has anyone ever experienced a hard leather insole in Guidi?)

    And I just noticed that the stitching on the side of the heel cup has a notable gap between it and the throat stitching, where they converge - whereas in all the product photos, they do not have a gap. Suspicious.

    Thanks everyone for the input. I'll have to return them if I can't obtain a clear determination of authenticity.

    Thoughts here? I've never seen a beanie produced by Paul. It seems a bit pedestrian and the texture of the fabric seems off.

    I anyone familiar with this Webstore. They have good prices but the quality of the website has me a little skeptical.

    Did anyone bought on https://dadmoscow.com or visited the shop in Moscow and can confirm they are legit sellers?
    I ask because I never heard from the Shop before. I do not ask because I am assuming their stuff isnīt legit. Apologise in case this is not the right thread for this question.

    Not legit. Notice how every size is in stock. There's a lot of sites with the same scheme and they usually pull their item codes and descriptions from farfetch

    Hi all - first time requesting a legit check, unsure if I am formatting this correctly (added an imgur album link in the code, will amend if this is incorrect).

    Recently obtained a Boris piece (size S) in a secondhand store in NYC. It appears to be a fairly lightweight sleeveless cotton jacket liner with a raw extended lining. Due to the nature of the store, the item came with zero information regarding season or product number, but I didn't notice any glaring omissions in the construction and picked it up for a steal price.
