I can confirm that got-a-bargain
sells authetic RL polos (I buy custom-fit polos from him/her.) I also have Jhuff8181
on my favorite seller list because, if what they sell is the same stuff that they take pictures of, they also sell authentic polos. Here's a post I made about finding real RL polos on eBay:
I try to buy RL polos on eBay most of the time. Fakes are getting better at copying, but there are still a few things you can look for. One fool-proof way you can spot a fake is the collar band on the inside of the shirt.
As you can see with this shirt, the band that is running along the collar is made from the same material as the mesh shirt. This indicates that it is a fake, as all real RL polos have a different material for the band. I would show you an example of a real one, but unfortunately, all close-up pictures of RL polos on eBay were fakes. Just check out the shirts you bought in Macy's or in another department store, you'll see that the band is made of a softer cotton and has horizontal ribbing running along it. I have yet to see a fake that has this, probably due to slightly higher costs and most importantly, customers just don't realize it. If you're considering a big purchase of RL polos, I recommend you ask for a close-up picture of the collar tag (so you can see the banding.) There are a few sellers that sell authentic polos, you just have to investigate, ask for better pictures and hopefully find a legitimate seller. I originally went for the dirt-cheap items and paid the price. Prepare to pay slighter higher prices than the other polos on eBay, but be happy that they're real! Hope this helps! -Chris
I'd like to add that most RL polo shirts on eBay are fake. About 80% I would say. The other 10% are real RL polos with horrible designs and the next 10% is the good stuff. RL Custom Fit polos are hard to find on eBay and tend to bid high (I got mine through the eBay stores, a place people hardly look at.) Oh, and another way to tell if an RL Polo is fake is if it has sharp wrinkles all over it. Wrinkles can happen to any clothing, obviously, but the fake stuff just wrinkles like crazy, and you can easily tell by the pictures. They look like that got flattened by a car. Here's an example of a fake RL polo with all those sharp wrinkles:
Here's a real one that I brought, notice the difference?:
(And yes, it's definitely authentic, I sell Polos at a department store and I can easily tell off the bat once it's in my hands.) (And why would I buy Polo shirts on the internet then? Lousy discount...
