It looks like a fake

look at the robe for sale and the one he is wearing. They are VERY different.

The ANATO signatures are genuine. The guys from these big auction houses are experienced.

I assume the robe is genuine too. An amazing piece of memorabilia.

Who would take the effort to fake such a thing?

Anyway, it doesn't fit me, I'm more the jeans type.

My friend went there yesterday and he was told the robe was not for sale.

[edit] Vern from QOL has proved it's a cheap fake - no wonder it's not for sale anymore.

Seems like I have overestimated the abilities of the so-called "experts" in Christie's...
