I would be almost certain that they are all "authentic", but that doesn't mean they are worth anything. Don't get excited for YSL,...
I've got a few items on eBay this week. A Samuelsohn sport coat, some Zegna ties, and a Comme des Garcons shirt http://shop.ebay.com/7thhole/m.html I don't know a lot about CDG except that there stuff is crazy expensive and people go crazy for it. I don't need to get a lot for the shirt so I put it out there with a low starting price compared to the other CDG pieces on eBay. If you know more about the shirt or are interested in it, send me a PM.

Most of the ones I've seen are self tipped and I think I have seen ones that read Made in New York. I think they are really nice ties, usually very thick and substantial.
Quote: Originally Posted by Nataku ^^ I've found that newer Talbott ties feel like they're made a lot better than the old ones too. Same with a lot of stuff. Zegna too. Their older stuff feels like garbage, but some of their newer stuff is amazing. What's the deal? I've heard of quality going down with time, but quality going up? I have a bunch of the older Zegna and Talbott ties (90's era) and agree they feel like crap. I think this may just...

I have found made in Italy ties that are of sub-par quality, and plenty of fused suits that are pretty low-end but made in Italy. The RL Signature line suits and jackets referenced above, while no longer made, were fully canvassed and made by Corneliani.

Was this the precursor for PL? Double-vented, looked for the pants to no avail. i think i saw a ralph lauren jacket just like that. is that worth keeping? If it was made in Italy, yes, definitely.
