Buyers Beware: Fake Givenchy Rottweiler T-Shirt

This is the moment most of you have been waiting for, I had receive many request recently to unfold a story of the famous Givenchy Rottweiler T-Shirt authenticity check, designed by Riccardo Tisci for Fall Winter 2011 collection.


Source: Vogue.it, 'Riccardo Tisci himself wearing the Givenchy Rottweiler T-shirt during Givenchy Fall Winter 2011 menswear fashion week.'


Recently a friend of mine, Don, told me that he really wanted the Givenchy Rottweiler t-shirt, Don is just like many of us but he wasn’t willing to pay premium price and even if he wanted it is currently impossible to purchase an authentic new piece today. This t-shirt has stopped production for more than a year ago and it is immensely popular as you all know that many celebrities have enjoyed wearing it. The Givenchy Rottweiler Head t-shirt used to be the most hyped t-shirt in 2011 until today the hype has yet to settle on the laggards consumers. The Rottweiler print has made Givenchy a wealthy house since Fall Winter 2011 sales, currently in 2012 Givenchy has four seasonal collections in menswear compared to last year, there was only two seasons.

I was really lucky to get hold of one in late 2011. At first I was very hesitant of the fierce print, I thought it was not suitable for my lifestyle since I used to play preppy looks between 2010 and 2011. But after seeing a friend of mine being photographed at a club next to a guy who wore it, it suddenly changed my mind and I was convinced that it was a must have despite a price of A$275 for a t-shirt. Never have I paid so much for a printed t-shirt in my life back then.

Looking back at what I had did, I felt I made the right decision to take up probably the last size M – regular fit Givenchy Rottweiler t-shirt from a local luxury men’s departmental store, Harrolds. During the near end of 2011, eBay was flooded with authentic Rottweiler t-shirts catching a resell value between $350-550. These days what I can see is a bunch of imitation Givenchy Rottweiler t-shirt floating everywhere in eBay on auction, and people fall for it despite the misrepresentation that it is an imitation copy. SSENSE - Givenchy Rottweiler Print Cuban-Fit T-Shirt. Short sleeve crewneck t-shirt in black. Rottweiler print at front. Ribbed neckline. Tone on tone stitching. 100% cotton. Machine wash cold. Made in Portugal.



Anyways, Givenchy no longer produces this version of Rottweiler print; the last batch I saw was a pre-order at Barneys during 30th of September 2011. My opinion to buyers who are really interested on this t-shirt is to move on with newer and future Givenchy print collections, there is no point risking paying $100-300 for the eBay Givenchy Rottweiler Fake T-shirt. This t-shirt is quite rare and even owners like myself will refuse to sell them at a reasonable price due to its scarcity and popular demand, owners of this authentic masterpiece will understand how most of us had to struggle looking for one in our size during those days. I have worn this t-shirt for more than 20 times and I am still in love with it. But I don’t think it is worth the trouble to fetch a fake piece like what my friend Don did, you will notice the substantial difference below in comparison.

The Givenchy Rottweiler Legitimate Check

'The truth revealed between a A$275 authentic Givenchy Rottweiler Print Cuban-Fit T-Shirt versus a A$30 fake from iOffer.com.'
Select image for larger preview.









In conclusion, there are significant difference between the quality of both manufacturers. The fake Givenchy Rottweiler T-shirt material feels rough and the cotton quality is cheaper than a basic Topman cotton top, while the authentic Givenchy Rottweiler T-shirt feels silky smooth made from stretchy material, cotton quality is much densely woven. The authentic Givenchy Rottweiler print is much more detailed than the fake Givenchy Rottweiler t-shirt, you will notice that the imitation factory failed to copy the amount of dark shades during the quick screening process. The fake Givenchy Rottweiler t-shirt also has higher colour density saturation compared to the authentic.

My Personal Recommendation

Here are some wise tips you should take note when looking for this t-shirt that has been sold out years ago.

Never believe anyone who claims it is authentic or even new. A popular t-shirt like this has been worn numerous times and is likely worn out with slight defects by now. The current resell value in year 2014 is expected to hit around $1,000 - $1,300 for this t-shirt, there is no such thing as a resell for $100 - $500. Use common sense and think like a consumer, if you own this t-shirt will you give it up for the same price you bought from the retailers knowing that so many people are looking for it? I don't think so right? I sold mine a year ago to a reader for $750.

If you think you had bought a fake recently from eBay or have used Paypal services to pay for the t-shirt there is still hope in getting your money back.

Ensure you return the t-shirt within 45 days of transaction. Start a dispute with Paypal and state that it is a replica. Paypal will eventually notify you to return the t-shirt to the seller, do that and return it with the fastest postage with online tracking. Services like DHL, UPS, TNT and FedEx are the only ones you should use. Paypal requires proof of return by reviewing the online tracking number. If there is no tracking and the seller does not want to refund you then it is too bad as you cannot do anything for your first mistake. Always always return an item with reliable tracking. The postage cost will set you back around $65 - $85 depending where you ship to via International Express.

Do not attempt to prove with Paypal as it is a replica, fake and try to keep the t-shirt. You will not win the dispute, the only way out of this is to return. Once the item is successfully returned, contact Paypal immediately. Some sellers may not even be bothered to refund you, so you must take action in order to get back your money. Take the return postage fee as a lesson for the future. To be honest i've bought fake Givenchy by mistake on eBay for many times and have learned it the hard way. You should never never buy expensive luxury goods on eBay, there are just too many ways a seller can get away. So don't be fooled or tempted by low prices as I can tell you 99.9% of the time it is already a replica.

So what should you do now since you can't find this t-shirt anymore? Well, the easiest way is to get over it! You won't gain any hype because you own a Givenchy Rottweiler T-Shirt, it makes no difference with the latest Givenchy Bambi Print T-Shirt and there will always be better Givenchy printed clothing in the future. Trust me, buy the latest and always know the reason why you are buying it.

Places to buy authentic Givenchy

Only buy for trusted online retailers, Luisa Via Roma is the leading luxury online retailer in the world and they carry an array of Givenchy menswear that ships worldwide. Farfetch is the most popular place to buy the lowest priced Givenchy's that are stocked by individual european stores which excludes VAT to most places in the world. If you live in USA, the best place to buy is Givenchy is at SSENSE. While UK retailer Matches Fashion is known to have competitive pricing. Other well reputed places to shop includes renowned MR PORTER that includes import tax and duties for almost everywhere in the world and will put your mind to ease with local customs. Another great place is Lane Crawford that is currently the booming retailer of Givenchy menswear in the east.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Make sure when you send back the item the parcel has a tracking number, so it can be tracked by Paypal. Just in case the seller refuse to refund at least you proved to Paypal that you have successfully return it and they will refund you for sure even if the seller doesn't. You should also leave negative feedback, sellers on eBay cannot leave buyers negative feedback so you don't have to worry.

    Hi, I unfortunately got conned into buying a fake recently off Ebay and opened up a claim on Paypal - they now want me to send them a letter of non-authenticity from a 3rd party. Do you happen to know how/where I can get this from? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It might not be possible for you to attain a letter of non-authenticity from a 3rd party, especially stores like Givenchy will unlikely take up the responsibility to validate or authenticate imitation products that were not purchased from their stores. But you can try asking them, I am not sure, this because Hermes in Melbourne holds the same policy, they will not authenticate any goods purchased outside their store.

      But what you can do is maybe write a letter with reference to the above pictures comparison with the Givenchy t-shirt that you received with the seller. I am not sure why Paypal needed a letter, usually they will just request the buyer to return with no questions asked. Did you bought it off iOffer instead?

      If they ask you to return the item, just return it with a tracking number so that Paypal can verify that you have successfully returned the goods, then after you will be entitled for a full refund excluding the return shipping cost. Don't forget to leave a negative feedback on the seller's account, sellers on eBay now can no longer leave negative feedback on buyers, so you are safe.

      Good luck and always be very skeptical buying Givenchy clothes on places like eBay.

    2. Anonymous6:47 PM

      Thanks for your reply. I bought the item off Ebay from a private seller and I initially offered to return the item to them but they refused a refund so I had to open a claim. If I can't get a letter I may just do what you suggested.

      Delete
    3. I met sellers like these before. But I like to call this situation a 'forced refund'. This means even the seller did not approve return of goods, Paypal will insist that they accept the return. This is a very long and painful process, but if you keep your head high and defend every question, you will get your money back.

      Sometimes sellers will go to the extend of not accepting the parcel from the courier or postage company, but you can explain this later on to Paypal down the road.

      There was once I paid a lot for a fake goods which I thought was real on eBay, even the seller claim it as authentic when clearly it wasn't, it was value at $700, I have to get my money back no matter what. I opened a dispute case againts the seller, stating that the item was not as described, imitation etc. And Paypal asked me to returned it to her, but she was smart enough to hand me her brothers address which I send the return item to. Paypal did not want to return my money, stating that they cannot verify the return address as it wasn't the one Paypal mention, also she didnt except my postage and it was stuck at customs waiting for her to declare it tax free since it was a return item, she had to prove to her local customs, she didnt bother.

      It was almost 2 months claim process, until I stated everything very clearly what happened with proof. So now what I learned is, always always only return the item to the Paypal transaction returned address, do not send it to another address mentioned by the seller by all means.

    1. No, not authentic! Givenchy never produce a t-shirt version with multiple rottweiler heads. This is a fake design. The authentic multiple rottweiler heads prints were only produced on a black shirt, tartan shirt, shorts and bag.

      Eventhough some of the ebay sellers are 'star sellers', their goods still maybe fake right? Which part of it reveal that it's fake? Can you share with me?

      Thank you :)

    3. Yes, sometimes the seller themselves are not even aware that it is fake. There are cases where a reputated seller accepted a trade in Givenchy Rottweiler t-shirt presuming it was authentic and reselling it to a buyer who later found out it was an imitation copy, but the seller clearly did not know that he bought a copy version from the earlier buyer.

      If you read the article and observe the photos you can also easily tell which are fake. Look at their feedbacks as well, especially sellers from Canada tend to seller imitation Givenchy goods, low feedback rate, negative feedback on the past are all signs that they have attempted to sell fake Givenchy.

      Anyhow, it is also part of the buyers fault, which they had created this demand for the Givenchy Rottweiler that is no longer produced. Why bother looking for something which was sold out more than a year ago and expect to only pay for $100-200? It is impossible like I said above, even original owners like me will be tempted to sell them between $500-800. There is no such thing as a deal too good to be true, always look for facts, figures, observation when hunting for Givenchy on eBay.

    1. Hi there, there is a replica version of this Givenchy Rottweiler shirt. However the replica sizes are noted in alphabetic, e.i. Size S, M and so forth. The authentic version sizes are noted in numerical only - Size 15 38, 15.5 39, 16 40. This is how you can tell the difference whether a seller is selling the authentic or replica.

      There is no replica version for the tartan Rottweiler shirt, so that is safe to buy.

      A few weeks ago I spot an authentic Rottweiler shirt that you are looking for on eBay. It was size 15 38, and the seller was pretty desperate to sell it. At first it was priced $700-800, then he placed it on bid and it ended at 500+, which should be the current price you are expected to pay, lowest.

      You will have to try looking at eBay, yahoo bid hk jp tw and Rakuten to find this shirt. It is possible but just have to wait for the right time for someone to sell.

      Good luck!

    1. It looks very tempting, even the seller described it in a way that will draw any buyers attention and trust. But this is not true, he is selling replica pieces. Givenchy never commission any Asian factory to produce their full product line. They only use Portuguese factories, this is the real fact.

      Plus if you see the Givency Stars and Stripes sweater listed by this ebay seller, he stated that the measurement is

      Chest: 52cm. Length: 68cm. Sleeve Length: 65cm.

      While, on MR PORTER, the true measurement is significantly different to the above measurements. You can see it here, http://www.mrporter.com/product/315196

      Size fit > View product measurements > convert to cm.

      This is how you can detect whether a seller is selling authentic goods or not. Always keep in mind Givenchy controls the market prices, and retailers must obey this rule. Therefore prices are never too good to be true, unless it is from a private seller, but then again you must also use various tactics to check whether it is authentic or not. This ebay seller uses authentic Givenchy clothing photos in the listing.

    Hi Maurice,

    I have a problem that maybe you can help me with. I bought a rottweiler sweatshirt from the seller that you are recommending in the end of this blog post. However, the sweater appears to be fake. Have you used that seller before, or how do you know that they are a legitimate seller?

      Hi again. I took the sweater to the Givenchy Men's store in Paris and they confirmed that is a fake. So you should probably remove the last part of this post and don't recommend dress-code-outlet-shop, so that other buyers dont get fooled by this seller.

      Love your blog, keep up the good work.

    Hi Maurice!

    Wow, you seem VERY knowledgeable on Givenchy Rottweiler products, especially Menswear. I am wondering if I can test your knowledge on the GIVENCHY ROTTWEILER ANTIGONA TOTE. ;) Are you familiar at all with the authenticity of Givenchy handbags???? I am DESPERATE for this bag, and peeps on ebay are OBVIOUSLY selling it for much more than the retail price of $800... One sold last week for $1,600!!! :( Anyway, I just spotted on ebay but, being an avid ebayer, I am aware of many of the fakes of designer lines out there, and have been a victim of fake NIKE and COACH products in the past! Gulp. :( Therefore, some things re: this listing (which I am posting below) raise alarm for me. FIRST: this is the THIRD of this bag that this seller has listed in the past 3 months!!! How in the world is she getting a hold of this bag so easily when it has been a coveted item that is completely sold-out and you can't find anywhere?!?!? Both of the past two times, the bags have sold for around $800 a piece (original retail price). That brings me to the SECOND point that makes me concerned: why is she listing the handbag for such a low price when she could easily make much more than the retail value on it if it's an authentic Givenchy Antigona tote??? Both of the past times and this current third time, she is listing the bag for a STARTING PRICE of $400!!!!! That seems WAY TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!! And the Reserve price is $800 (which is the very same amount as this bag went for retail. Lastly, the THIRD point of alarm for me I discovered as I was reading your blog above and enjoying the thoroughness of your knowledge on the Rottweiler Men's Shirt: you mentioned in reply to someone's post above, that one indication of a fake is if the item is coming from CANADA. Well, this ebayer is shipping from.... you guessed it: Vancouver, BC!!!!! YIKES!!! :/ Anyway, check it out for yourself, and if you have any clues on how to tell if the Givenchy bags are authentic or not, please give me a heads up! :) Thanks for your time,

    Laura.

    1. Hi Laura, this is not authentic. The print is well imitated, but some of the darker tones were not. You can see from this picture below which I reference from Barneys, the Rottweiler eyebrow area has a distinctive two done, a mid grey that meets the darker grey. However on the eBay Givenchy Rottweiler Antigona tote, these two tones are equally similar.

      You must be careful, because these are very well replicated just like the tshirts.

      As you already have in doubt that no seller like you or me would be willing to sell a popular bag at half of its price brand new. We understand that even the seller is desperate enough, she will most probably let is go around 700 or 600 the least, but this might most likely be used. If this bag is that popular, I would see many sellers listing them around a fair $1000-1200 for brand new with box and tags.

      You also mention that she could list more than a few in a month. Therefore I could conclude that this is not a safe seller to trust. She also added in the description that the bag has been sold out worldwide. I don't think she would be willing to let it go for such a low price on bid, taking this risk.

      So no, do not buy from her. Unless you would want to risk loosing some money on the return postage, if it is an imitation. But this will take at least 2 months for Paypal to resolve the dispute and it would not be pleasant for you as well when you could have used that money to buy one on net a porter.

      I suggest that you look check out Givenchy stockist online every Tuesday at the beginning of the week. That is the time they will stock new items in their store. You should also look into the current collections as the new season has just commence.

      Since this bag has been sold out, I doubt in any way you can find one new. If you are looking for rare and hard to find items, you should look into Rakuten. It is advertised on my blog at the bottom right of the page. Rakuten is a Japanese website much like eBay. But Japanese people are very sincere and honest, so everything there is authentic. You may be able to find this bag there. The sellers would also rate the condition, from SS to C rating.

    Hi again Maurice,

    Thank you for your awesome reply!! Wow, very informative! Anyway, first things first: I decided to take your advice and did NOT purchase the above handbag I had first sent you a message about. I ended up emailing the seller and asking her how it was possible that she was now selling her third of these impossible-to-find-handbags. She wrote back a very nice reply, telling me that she has a "contact" that works for the Givenchy factory in Portugal and that's how she was able to find these items, and that she received them from the factory directly herself so she knew they were coming from a "reputable" place and saw the items and they looked legit, blah, blah, etc., etc. She also did say that if the buyer was not happy or there was any question about authenticity, she was of course willing to accept a return (that part was nice). Other than that, i didn't buy any of her story. This item was so rare, that why in the world would they still today be shipping her not just one, two, but three of these handbags in a row to sell, when they could be selling them at TOP price at a retail store??? It made NO sense. Also, I know the Givenchy clothing line is made in Portugal, but as far as I know, the leather goods are made at their factory in Italy (Let me know if you are in agreement or if you think otherwise). Anyway, the whole thing seemed bogus. And by the way, that handbag ended up selling for only $630!! Considerably lower than the retail price of $955 and up for that bag, and a RARE item on top of that that is no longer available anywhere - a seller could easily sell it for $1200 - $1500 or more, just as you said yourself. So anyway, that is the update on that. Now I have found another seller who has one of these Rottweiler totes for sale and I am completely torn on whether I think this is authentic or not. Below is the link which I would love if you could check out and let me know your thoughts and first instict on this item. It's hard to tell because the pictures are not close up and they're a bit grainy in quality. The seller does have the paperwork for this bag (but no receipt), and..... and it's a big AND.... this is the second of these bags he's sold!!! He first sold his and now he's claiming to be selling his sister's for her.... mmmmhhhh.... Btw, I sure hope these are authentic for the buyers' sake: the first one he sold for $1,550 and this one has a starting bid of $1,350 and someone has already bid on it! So it could easily go for over $1,600 if a bidding war gets going. Either this bag is real, or this guy is a real jerk for ripping people off like this! I don't know.... I just want to judge the photos and give me your take on this item.

    1. Givenchy leather products are made in Italy, clothing line is made in Portugal. Not everyone can easily access these items since management controls the quantities produce. Even if they had, they will not sell it for such a low price KNOWING that it is popular and could easily catch a higher price. Do not buy from that seller, I don't trust her.

      As for the new link that you've posted. This is authentic, I have a bit of doubt because the photos are not clear enough. However the tone of the print seems accuarte to me. If you would like to buy this, please remember to only pay it with Paypal. Therefore if you end up getting a fake one, you can always get a refund from Paypal's buyer protection program.

      Please also remember that there are better bags out there that you can buy with $1,300-1800. And also Givenchy will also release newer printed Antigona handbags. Not unless you only want this so badly. Actually I think this Rottweiler bag is just okay, for $800-1000 is worth the price. But not more than $1200. You can catch the none-Tote version of the Antigona in a small or medium if you have a budget of $1,300-1,800 to spend. And the none-Tote Antigona looks so much more nice. Don't you think so? Hmm.. but this is entirely up to you.

      Good luck on the bid, and I hope you can win the auction at the right price!

      Hi again! Ok, wow, I had not realized you had written back with so much information since I wrote you, because I was not around for a few days and hadn't checked for replies! :) Thank you!!! I have lots to comment on but not much time at the moment so I will write later, but for now, I am posting TWO links below to TWO Givenchy Rottweiler handbags currently listed on ebay to get your feedback. :) The one that is listed at a starting bid of $799 is a smaller version. It's the "medium tote" not the super large tote that was advertised and seen much more often. I am pretty certain this bag is authentic - great photos, and I've been in contact with the seller who has been plenty of solid information and even emailed me pics of the tag and all authenticity paperwork. The only thing is, this is the smaller tote and I would prefer the larger....Anyway, the next link is a listing of a larger one. The seller seems to sell a LOT of Givenchy merchandise which is a good sign, and has lots of great feedback, but once again as with the previous listing I sent you, the photos are kind of blurry so it's hard to tell... the good pictures are the ones he's posted from websites... the ones that are his are kind of muddled, although he does show the interior of the bag in a few of them. Anyway, that item is in Bulgaria. Interesting... Not sure what to make of that. The smaller tote that I'm pretty much 99% sure is authentic, is located in France, which I think is a good sign. Anyway, let me know your thoughts.

      thanks again! You are awesome! :)

    3. Follow your instincts. If you feel it is secure then make a decision. However, I would not bid or buy both. The one by moza*12 is particularly fake, stay away from this seller. The print is not in the original position.

      Yesterday there were some Givenchy Antigona Medium on LN-CC for only $700, which includes DHL shipping. It has a patent black handle and Givenchy logo tab, and rest is black leather. Pretty beautiful and what an amazing discount. By the time my gf made her decision it was sold out. LOL. There are some pretty good deals around, check shopstyle.com

She's got all the paperwork (of course that could be paperwork to an authentic bag that she is keeping and she is selling a replica instead) haha. I was pretty confident about that one. The bag looks amazing in the photos as well. Mmmhhh, okay, thanks for your input! Yes, I check shopstyle.com every day! :) Thanks for suggesting.

    Oh by the way, thanks for the Rakuten recommendation! :) I have now been checking this site on a daily basis. No luck yet, but I'll keep trying! Also, as far as the Givenchy store stockists go, Givenchy does not have an actual online retailer, unfortunately... I keep checking all the other American and European sites that sell the line, and have even gone as far as to email the customer service of some of the sites, and they have said they do not have any access to any more of these bags. My best hopes would be if there was a return of one, which would be rare. But as far as an actual Givenchy boutique, I don't believe there are any in the U.S. Are you familiar with any? And the Givenchy website doesn't offer any online shopping or much else. It's mostly a "gallery" of their collection.

    Thanks!

    1. You have to filter it to 'shipping to Japan', instead of your home country. You may be able to see much more. However Japanese sellers are known not to sell internationally (not sure why). Therefore you must you a third party shipping company to divert the parcel. I use 'Tenso.com', it is cheap and they are very very efficient. The downside is they do not mark down the value on papers, so you might get taxed when importing the handbag to your country. :|

      I also use Shopstyle.com. This is a great website to find new items from various Givenchy stockist online. You should always check it everyday. Or maybe 3 times a day, im pretty sure something will come out that you will like. :)

      But to be honest, this Rottweiler collection is just once off. Givenchy will not make it anymore, not unless the creative director and head of marketing department decide its going to be a classic collection. However I am confident that Mr. Riccardo Tisci will make a new one soon. With such popular demand, why not?

      Just be patient, and check all sources. I am sure you will be able to find one with the right price. I recently purchase a Balmain Military Jacket that I always wanted from Fall Winter 2011. But the price and sizing was never right until one fine day. It took me over a year to look for it at the right price... hahahaha ;D

      I always believe if you want something so badly, it will eventually come to you. But all you need is a little faith and effort!

    Hi!

    Is it right to say that every piece of this shirt or any design sold from the boutique look 100% the same? Be it the distance from the tip of the forehead to the neck, the shadowing of the teeth(authentic ones have more shadows on the teeth) and more.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Print position is the same, but there are two different fits for the rottweiler. The regular fit also known as the slim fit cutting as the one shown above, has a cropped rottweiler. You can see the print is not complete at the shoulders. The other fit is columbian, or oversize, this rottweiler print is complete since it has a much wider fit, approximately 4-5 size bigger (XS fits like XL-2XL). The first photo of Riccardo Tisci in Fall Winter 2011, features him wearing the oversize Rottweiler t-shirt.

      As for the sweatshirt, there is only 1 type of it, which is also columbian/ oversize.

      What about the GIVENCHY PARIS words on the shirt label? Do all pieces have the wordings centralised in the middle be it left right or top bottom?

      Delete
    3. You must be new to Givenchy judging by the way you are questioning me.

      The Givenchy word is always at the top, and paris is at the bottom. But this does not really matter, because you wont be able to tell as an amateur. The black label is usually finer in material compared to the replica which is slightly rough. Fonts are almost the same, but the authentic has sleeker fonts, this isn't heaven and earth difference.

      You should not be looking into buying this t-shirt. As I have already explained above, in no doubt that anyone will be willing to sell theirs. Even if they did, this t-shirt will be listed at a market value between $600-800. Plus you must also take in the risk of buying a replica, the chance of you buying the genuine rottweiler t-shirt is very very very slim. I would probably estimate it to be less then 1% chance you can get it right since there is a whole pool of people wearing replicas, and some have no idea that they actually own a fake.

      But if you have time and money on your hands to explore and make mistakes then go ahead. But if I were you, i'll be better off buying the latest collections. Givenchy is a very expensive and highly demanded brand, so I don't think there is room to even have a thought about bargaining.

    okay. So I know this is the wrong post to be asking you a question about the GIVENCHY SPRING/SUMMER 2013 MADONNA collection, but I'm in desperate need for an answer.
    I spotted a shirt on eBAY that I believe is authentic, but I'd like to run it through with you before I make any purchase.
    Please and thanks. xx

    1. No its not authentic because the Givenchy label tag is open at the side. Which is a known indicator of fake. Please read 'How to spot fake Givenchy' by using the search bar on this blog. Sorry for the late reply, i've been really busy lately.

    1. No its not authentic because the Givenchy never made a Rottweiler with diamonds hoodie. They only made an oversize t-shirt for womenswear line, so it is fake.

    1. Hi Rachel, any Givenchy clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories from iOffer is 100% imitation copy, there are all fakes in that website. This Givenchy Tote that you are looking for is no longer in production since it is a seasonal product from Fall Winter 2012. It was tremendously popular and has been sold out pretty quick since being released. You can find a discussion above this comment about someone asking me the same question in very detail.

      Please do not look for this bag as there are many fakes floating around ebay selling at a premium price. I hope you have not bought it yet.

    1. Its not easy, I at one time almost bought a replica on eBay. The only way to spot it is the inner washing label tag and the ribbed count on the knees. The ribbed count on the knees is usually around 24-26, while the fake ones are above 30. These are the good replicas, the bad replicas are easy to spot, the ribbed knee is usually straight cropped, while authentic has a curve.

      If you have read it, you wouldnt have bought that fake Givenchy Madonna t-shirt. I'm sorry, but its fake. Its pretty obvious too, there were so many signs, such as the price, seller rating and picture. I could easily tell.

      I hope you have not paid the seller yet. This Givenchy Madonna T-Shirt retails at $700 USD, I doubt in anyway anyone on earth will let it go on bid at such a bargain.

    2. Hi there Maurice, thank you so much for your reply, yeap I've won but I haven't paid for it yet, and after this am not paying at all, I've apologized and asked the seller to remove or re-list it, with the excuse of having second thoughts about it's authencity. The total price to pe paid was SGD 240 - thank God I asked for your advice! By the way, in Singapore it retails for SGD 998, which I find unreasonably high for a Tisci shirt, do you have any thoughts as to why it's priced so steeply?

      Thanks again!

    3. Givenchy is a luxurious leading fashion designer brand, it has its authentic essence that defines it's unique attributes in the fashion market. Therefore the brand is aim to serve a particular target market. The price defines where the brand sits, if the price is too low, the demand will outweighs supply.

      Currently the demand has already outweigh supply, that is why the price has been constantly increasing. In 2011, you can buy a Givenchy Rottweiler T-Shirt for $265 USD, however now a simple Givenchy T-Shirt will cost you at least twice that money.

      Givenchy also has made several versions, some are lower in price at $300 and some are very high in price at $1600. The ones you are looking at are the popular designs, which are priced very high. Reason being as explained, to meet the right demand at the right pricing. If that Madonna t-shirt was $265, it would have been sold out within an hour of release, and Givenchy will struggle to meet the markets demand. It will also further deteriorate the brand because of its 'affordability'. So in order to stay in the same positioning. Price has to increase to keep out most of the buyers. You must also not forget that Givenchy is a high-end designer, not ZARA or H&M or ASOS who are looking to cater their brand to the mass market.

      So if you think its too expensive, then why not just settle for a genuine lower priced Givenchy t-shirt? It has it reasons for such ridiculous prices.

      I hope you understand where I am coming from.

    I dont know if you're still active on this post but can you help me out with this one? The seller doesnt have a lot of feedback but all positive. The shirt looks authentic to me when comparing it to the same shirt on SSENSE (which is sold out of course). The price looks realistic. If its authentic I'd be willing to buy it immediately!

    1. It doesn't look authentic to me unless you can supply me a photo of the inner washing label.

      Also, for this price you can buy the latest Givenchy Madonna collection from reputed websites like MR PORTER, SSENSE or Farfetch which is guarantee 100% safe and authentic. Why not just pay a little more to enjoy the latest offerings by Givenchy?

      Think about it.

  66. Anonymous1:08 AM

    I asked the seller for an inner wash label. Hopefully, he sends me some better detailed pictures.

    The reason why I wont go to Mr. Porter, SSENSE or Farfetch is because I really want a t-shirt from the Rottweiler collection. I completely missed my opportunity to buy one when they were easy to buy but I'm willing to pay for it if its authentic. I'm not interested in the Givenchy Madonna collection.

    This particular t-shirt (with the Rottweiler collar) was sold for $300 at SSense. This seller says its pre-ownded but he's selling it for $400. That makes sense to me?

      I prefer the regular Rottweiler t-shirt over the Rottweiler collar one but I havent seen any authentic ones in a long time. Is it new or worn? Also, if you are planning on selling it would you sell it on ebay?

      I'm willing to pay for one but I dont know about $750 lol.

      I have a Rottweiler and I've always liked Givenchy so this shirt is perfect for me.

    3. It has been worn, but has been very well taken care of. Comes with original tags and even receipt from Harrolds, Australia.

      I will only be selling it through my blog not eBay for security purposes, I will only take bank transfer if this t-shirt is to be shipped to 2nd or 3rd world countries and Paypal for 1st world countries excluding Asia.

      Have a think about it. The t-shirt is as above shown in this post.

      Ok Paypal would work for me. I'm in the United States.

      I'm actually a medium but I decided if I found an authentic Large I would get it tailored to fit. Mediums seem to be the highest in demand and thus the hardest to find. Especially an authentic one.

      I'd definitely be willing to pay but like I said $750 is a little TOO much. lol
