    Hi all,

    I've taken a look at the label resource already and seen that there is a picture of a similar tag with a note that says "Look carefully for handwritten numbers". I just want to clarify whether handwritten numbers would indicate the coat is real or a knock-off. I found a picture of the coat from US Vogue in September 1969 and it looks identical, but a customer just asked about the serial number so I want to be absolutely positive!

    Pictures attached. Thanks!

    We can't authenticate, but the number under the label is usually where the serial number is placed unless it is sometimes printed directly on the label.

    Givenchy is still in business. You can write the Attache' de presse at their Paris headquarters.

    I asked about the serial numbers on eBay. Such a great piece! Serial number is the consistent with the year.
