I know a lot of us on this site are Alexander McQueen skull scarf fans, but there are SO many fakes on eBay and elsewhere. I've attached a few pictures so hopefully everyone who wants one won't be duped by a fake.
I personally purchased the black scarf from Neiman Marcus, so it's definitely real. The white one I purchased from eBay, and as it turns out, it's counterfeit. I was able to return it and get my money back (although the vindictive seller wrongly gave me neg FB after I negged her, tainting my 100% pos FB). Before I sent the item back, I took pictures of it so we can all see the differences between real and fake scarves.
Here is the logo on the REAL scarf, purchased from Neiman Marcus. Look closely at how all the letters are neatly and evenly stamped onto the fabric:
Now, look at the logo on the FAKE scarf. The lettering isn't evenly stamped on the scarf:
OK, look at the tag on the REAL scarf. Pay close attention to the "X" in Alexander.
And the tag on the FAKE scarf, see how the "X" is totally different:
OK, done! I hope this helps everyone who is in the market for one of these scarves!
