    Hi, I bought on eBay one of these Ralp Lauren Slim fit polo’s.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/polo-Ralph...var=583471009425&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    I received it and all correct labels seem included. Yet I found some strange issues:

    - a 3rd spare button is included and stitched on the inside bottom label.
    - the fabric is very thin (it is no featherlight)
    - the collar and sleeve ends are different from other custom fits I own.

    Any guesses on fake as all labels seems fine.

    BTW Seller has all positive feedback but also one other person complaining on the quality.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hi,

    Is this Ralph Lauren shirt fake or authentic? I am confused as the stitching is pretty rough but the labels are same as on my RL purple label shirt which is authentic . Thanks.

    Chanel looks okay to me, but @SpooPoker is the expert here.

    I’ve always been bothered by how shitty and fake looking Chanel tags are

    Agreed... It's almost like they encourage counterfeiters.

    Hey

    Got a hold of these used Dsquared jeans, is there any chance they are legit? Haven't seen labels like that and the content tag says "100% BAU WOLLE" which seems like a typo. Just want to be sure before throwing them out.

    Thanks!

    The maker label and the logo looks good to me - but I'm no means an expert on this
