I've googled and everything I've found deals with Ralph Lauren polos, no info on pants. Does anyone know how to spot a fake?
How to tell whether RL pants are legitimate?
Styleforum Top Picks
Do RL pants have the pony logo?
What should I look for on the label? I know with polos the originals always use the thread of the same color as the shirt while the fakes tend to use white thread, I guess that's the case with pants, too. Is there anything else?
Don't they have a sown in tag on the back over the pockets? Is there something about that I can look for?
Also if anyone can tell me how to tell whether Burberry pants are fakes or not I'd appreciate it.
This looks suspect to me:
The way the threading doesn't line up with the cut of the leather patch.

Counterfeit Burberry can be quite easy to spot sometimes...
However I'm sure some of the knock-offs come from the same sweatshops as the real stuff.
Evisu, Burberry, RL or whatever, orders 100,000 pieces from their contractor, but the contractor actually makes 200,000 pieces, including rejects. It's called unauthorised second runs.
If something has wonky stitching on a label, could just be a second rather than counterfeit.
I bought a Polo Ralph Lauren dress shirt a few weeks ago for 40 RMB (about $6 USD), Its a very well made shirt, IMO looks good and should last OK.
