Proper RLPL Labeling/Tag

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I am having a hard time confirming if these polos are authentic RLPL's or not. I have searched dozens of threads and cannot come to a fair conclusion so I am looking for a second opinion.

 

From my research here is what I am seeing:

The Good:

1) Horizontal Buttons

2) Purple Label with Silver Stitching3

3) Feels like Mercerized Cotton

 

The Bad:

1) My polo has 2 tags not 3 at the neck

2) My lower tag is small and short

3) No supplier/season tag

A proper RLPL I believe the be Authentic:

Has 3 Labels

Are both Polos Authentic or is mine a "good" fake? Any help is appreciated.

Mine have 2 at the neck. They look real to me and I'm honestly not sure how often RLPL is copied. The silver threading is also a good sign, it's harder to fake on shirts. When it's faked it usually looks like Christmas tinsel threaded through instead of a professional finish. Where did you get them that you'd question the authenticity? eBay?

Yes, on ebay. Glad to know yours look like mine since I have had trouble confirming.  

 

I'm keeping the polos, I just hate knowing that I might be wearing fakes. I purchased a tie also and it arrived today. No Ralph Lauren on the lower portion and no RN number. Im sending that one back and getting a refund and am no longer buying RLPL stuff on ebay. Its just not worth the headache and stress each time I buy something.

That is correct, off ebay. I have done quite well buying items brands BB, AE, Talbott, but stepping up to RLPL and polo in general you see a lot more fakes so when I recieved this shirt I noticed a few suspicious things, but overall seemed like too much effort to be faked.  Thank you for helping me verify the authenticity of these items.

the purple label tag looks real, but I only have RLPL dress shirts so I might be wrong. :/

That looks like the Ralph Lauren Purple Label shirt labels we get here. Could be excess production from Guangdong province.

They are probably from different production years and/or production plants. Chill out.

The first one seems to me sth made for an outlet... the second one seems to be made for a RL store.. i noticed exactly same thing on my 2 RLPL shirts. one bought from online RL store, other being bought on ebay.. the one bought on ebay has a small tag , i don't believe that it's a fake but the quality is not as good as the other shirt. I , personally don't buy any more  RLPL/RLBL stuff (with the exception of suits) i think you can find much better at the same price. (RLPL/RLBL suits are nice)
