Why would you have a concern it's fake?
I mean it has the manufacturer label in it. The number you have your finger on in the picture I believe is the EU size not the model number

I mean aside from it looking like it’s old, It seems pretty legit to me (labels are in place and look just like my Dainese Street Darker jacket)

I mean it has the manufacturer label in it. . .
So do thousands of handbags, clothes, sporting equipment and even helmets, sold across the world by scammers.

I certainly think it's fair and reasonable to check the authenticity of an item that we're buying with passion. For true peace of mind, I think @Elmanadily should bang an email and pics to Dainese direct:

I think a leather riding jacket is a bit different than buying a hand bag at an absurd price just for the name alone.
Even if the jacket was a fake it is still obviously leather which is the sole purpose of the jacket to begin with..... Crash protection. Besides the manufacturers tags are in several places as well as embroidered on the back of the jacket which can't be cheap or easy to fake well.
It's used so why fake a used jacket that can't be going for much money anyway. Maybe I'm wrong and there is a huge market for knock off second hand riding jackets, in that case why risk it and waste the time on doing detective work and just go buy a legit one from an authorized dealer and buy within your budget.
If it's on eBay, Amazon, or any of the many other sites they have buyer protection as does paying with PayPal so I don't see the risk or concern

If it’s legit, it looks like it’s used on daily basis for general purpose/washed/worn by oversized person. The area near neck doesn’t look crisp, zipper doesn’t look crisp, openings for the pockets don’t look crisps/straight.

For $50 I'd buy it. Anything more, I'd pass. Unless you're really into the vintage/shabby-chic look.

I see your point, and its going for some money also but ill see if i can get a good deal with the owner, but before that i just wanted to make sure of the authenticity of the product, thanks for your comment

Is there a way to make them look somehow crisp again or it will be difficult

Well, erm, there is Botox, but I'm not sure it works on leather jackets! :ROFLMAO: ;)

Seriously though, once the grain is creased, it will always remain the same. Think of shoes, same thing.

Well, if that is the case, might as well knowingly buy a fake one for cheap. No, not all leather is the same, and the protection used in a knock off could very well be hard pieces of plastic. Paying a premium for a brand name MC jacket is because you trust the protection is there, otherwise, why not get an copy anyway?

That neck will most likely bother you if you are going to plan to wear it on a motorcycle with full face helmet because it will rub on your helmet in the front where that material is sticking out every time you turn your head and for some reason it seems too high at the back. personally don’t think it’s legit motorcycle jacket because that neck line should have been lower at the back. Maybe it’s built for half helmets only...

Excellent observation.

I can relate to that because I did purchase an al cheapo Pakistani jacket once, and that was high in the neck at the back. Consequence was it tipped my helmet forward so I was forever pushing the helmet up so that I could see. I ended up having the collar cut at a local leather shop.

Padded leather shoulders. jacket looks rather old. With a nice SP you deserve a trip to your local Dainese store :)
