Fair enough, they could have been fakes or a cheap line, but who knows. The polos and sneakers at my local lacoste boutique are pretty nice though and certainly don't smell of petroleum, they are better than nike/adidas/puma stuff and are designed much nicer. As for being synthetic lined, I don't think thats a sure sign of bad quality, there are many decent synthetic fibers out there and technical garments swear by them. That jil sander cardigan is awesome, very similar colour to a Dior Homme cardigan I saw at Assin a little while back, might be worth looking into if you're unsure on the jil sander.
