    I'm not sure..but it's definitely from a thrift store (hence the staple through the tag where the price once was), which makes me believe the seller wouldn't even know if it was legit or not. I have never seen any knitted sweaters like that copied, though...Only the polo's. Just my 2 cents.

    I have seen polo sweaters with the same patterns during different years and seasons. I don't know if that means the sweater is legit or not but they ahve definitely reused old patterns. I agree with MiamiRedSkin, you don't see many knit sweaters with that kind of detail copied.

    Thanks guys. That makes sense. In the question thread another user also said that same thing.
