It's okay. I think it's still desirable for resale especially 100% Silk and with the tags. But, I agree it's not near as good as some of the other RL stuff that is farmed out. Plus, I only paid $4.74.

I still have the original sales tags in the inside pocket of my leather jacket and I fell in poop while wearing it one time.

in any case, i suspect it's made by corneliani in their slovak factory. i've got a PRL with identical tags plus corneliani maker tags (in fact, it's also the Congressman pattern).

 

back when i copped i got curious and sure enough, corn apparently does make in eastern europe in a couple of locales... if it doesn't have the corn tags i probably would not spam that maker.

 

in any case i wouldn't expect it to match the quality of the italian stuff but then again as much as i like the Polo II silhouette i don't consider any of it particularly durable...

Thanks!  I saw the one tag (that I previously posted) and didn't look for another one.  After reading your post, I wondered if there were other tags.  

 

Are these Corneliani tags?

Yup!

Woo Hoo!  So, @double00 was absolutely correct!   Even though it says made in Slovakia, it is a Corneliani!    The only Corns I have found were Polo SC that I sent to @SpooPoker when I didn't even know they were Corneliani!  

 

Thanks for the help, guys.   Now, I know what to look for when I find I a RL Polo.

I bought an 84 trek 760 years ago that had suntour superbe on it. Sold the groupset and rebuilt the bike for my own use. Pretty much paid for itself. It was sick.
