(In an attempt to head off a noobs snark-fest, I'm going to try to do this politely) New dudes: Turns out a lot of big names were licensed out during most of the past few decades. While there is some really good Dior stuff (pour homme, I believe; each label has its own "good" line), the Dior pictured here (and most others) is not that. In fact, brags about Dior stuff is a bit of a running joke here, as it reveals who is a grasshopper, and who a master. Sifting through which stuff was licensed and which not (e.g., Dior, Lanvin, YSL, Givenchy -- mostly licensed, with rare exceptions; Versace, Gucci -- generally not licensed) takes time and learning, and sifting through which of the possibly licensed stuff is good and which bad takes even more nuance and a patience for foreign languages than I, personally, am capable of. As a result, I pass on 99.99% of every Dior, YSL and many other "name" brands I see, and even then I don't brag about it.
The general advice for learning the ropes and not "fail"ing as above is that the best learning is derived from reading this thread from the beginning. Yes, all of it. Daunting as that is, if you do it, you'll be schooling us soon, a la DM7. Good luck, and have fun out there!
EDIT: A few nice finds in there, to be proud of and bragged about. I think that second, stripey Th. Pink shirt may be a woman's, based on sizing. And both are an older tag. Not sure of exact vintage, but more than 12-15 years old.
