Real Polo-RL shirts tend to fit like blankets too. And if my standards have already fallen so far that I'm looking to show off an oversized pony on my chest, then I don't think I'd be so concerned about authenticity. After all, the "real" and the "fake" shirt are fundamentally the same thing: a middling-quality garment made by cheap labor and sporting a big tacky logo. In fact, I'd say it's the same sort of cynical marketing sells both the real and fake logoed goods.

Well, there's a difference between knowingly paying $3 for a fake RLPL shirt and unknowingly paying $20.

I've seen cut-label big-Pony-Polos in outlet shops in my locality. Even for those prices, I was not in the least bit tempted to buy....

That's certainly true, but if you're going to wear a shirt with a logo this large then people will inevitably ask questions about it, and what answers can you give them?

I'm not a fan of huge logos but I quite like the big pony. It's very sporting.

I don't know, I always thought of the Pony as being a classic icon. Kind of like a Campbell's soup can. But that's just me.

I actually have a couple of the single color big pony polos and I truly love them. It's not just the fact the logo is larger, it is something different, and that's why I like them. I just don't understand why someone would want to pay in good money for a shirt EVERYBODY else has. That's why I bought the big pony shirts. Anyway, I ordered 2 multicolored big pony shirts off ebay, and altough very good, they were fakes. I called Polo to verify this. After going back and looking on ebay, I couldn't find any authentic multicolor big pony shirts. Some of the fakes are more obvious than others. For example if an ebay seller sells big pony shirts in colors polo doesn't even have on their website, then it is safe to say that all of their polos are fake.

I wanted to buy my husband a genuine Big Pony Polo shirt and found a company www.international-orders.com that bought it for me directly from www.RalphLauren.com and shipped it to me gift wrapped in the blue box in just a few days all the way to Australia ! They only charges me for the Fedex International shipping fees.

Amen. I was in Neiman Marcus last winter and a mother was dragging her 17-18 y.o. son around buying him nicer clothes than I ever had at that age. What she really wanted for him though were Big Pony oxfords. She was gushing about how they'd seen them in Florida and they are 'so beautiful'. Ugh. Edit: Didn't realize this was an ancient thread.
