Ralph Lauren Experts: Authentic RLBL Suits? ID Maker?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Picked up two of these pre-owned RLBL suits today at the same location, they look to be of the same exact model, one brown and one navy. My size, I just need to make sure that they're authentic before tailoring and dry cleaning.

Navy Details:

Brown Details:

I compared both of these to a brand new recent RLBL suit I bought from the store a couple months back. The majority of stuff looks to be the same, even the details on the metal waist band adjuster.

Some things I noticed that are different:
  • Maker/Materials ID tag
  • These say "LUZIU" on the metal waistband clasp (10th Spoiler Photo of Navy). The one I recently bought from the store says "Elegant"
  • The zipper on these say "MRS". The one I recently bought from the store is "YKK"
  • These do not say "Ralph Lauren" across the waist bank like this: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

  • Does not have drop size tag like this: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

  • Also looks to be a very crappy tailoring job or fraying on the excess fabric used to let out the waist

Could these be older suits? Not sure if they had model names back then like "Anthony". Also can anyone identify the maker of these? Caruso as well?

I own a couple of rlbl, and from what I see they are the real deal.

These look authentic to me. I doubt that Black Label fakes exist.

Those aren't a pick up. Those are a score.
