I figured a high-end clothing manufacturer would stay away from rayon. I expect this out of lauren ralph lauren, but not RLBL...

Disappointing if it is true. confused.gif

Probably fake. Look at his feedback.

The inner tag doesn't even look like an RLBL tag (i.e. the 'Caruso' tag).

The inner tag is rather suspicious. '34% Virgen Wool'.

The vendor's having a joke as well isen't it? Buy it now $495 USD, for a second hand, 64% rayon(plastic) suit.

Yikes, I had that on my watch list. I hadn't noticed the rayon bit, but wouldn't have guessed it was a fake. This makes me anxious about buying on ebay.

100% fake..no question about it.

Why is everyone saying it's fake - I very much doubt it looking at the detail of the jacket. I think it's a Cantarelli label and probably an early RLBL before they were made by Caruso.

I was messing around, since everyone seems to jump on the fake train. It looks legit. I have an early RLBL peak lapel coat. The tag looks identical, save the Rayon. Mine is 97% Virgen Wool and 3% Elastane. All the text on the tag are similar to the text on mine.

The seller's feedback is sketchy if you only look at the negative. Looks like he had a few issues. But I doubt the fake claims are true, however the claims of some items with ripped lining and frayed clothing probably are and he was not responsive to those people in terms of refund, then again those people could be assholes and trying to cheat him out of something. I know what its like on eBay, and it is usually a ruthless arena of hyenas preying on anything they can.

Rayon is actually a semi-synthetic fiber, not plastic. It's used for improved stretching. But for the main component of a suit material? No, I would say...

I have no idea if it is fake or not, but if it's real it's sad that RLBL is using/used rayon for anything other than lining.

In the words of another poster a while back... "after you are done using the suit, you can use it as a trash bag!" laugh.gif

Its most likely an older suit, probably when Black Label was still starting out.

That tag is the same as the one inside an older RLPL cotton blazer that I have. St. Andrew's, I thought. Definitely not Caruso.

Is it really the same? I checked my St. And tag and it looks nothing like it. But again, it could be an older model.
