Hi guys, I got my lacoste shirts from eBay. Quite dissapointed. According to the tag, they are manufactured by "Sports and Leisure Apparel Ltd". I looked up this company online and they are the licensee of Lacoste in India. The shirt is inferior in every way compared to the one I purchased from Saks which was labeled "Designed in France, Made in Peru". Differences: - cheaper-feeling cotton - collar not as well constructed (might will lose its shape after wash/dry) - buttons not as nice (they used white buttons for a dark colored shirt as opposed to the Saks one which used beautiful dark grey pearl buttons) - no side gussets - roomier fit (does not suit me) eventhough both are tagged size 5 Learn from my mistakes. I hope this helps those who are looking for Lacoste shirts.
