Just an update, this piece sold by NYMilan (who also owns a online store called shop375_), is proven to be non-authentic, now i have to send back to them to get the refund back (by paypal)

one of the give key point was the t-shirt label.
It supposed to be labeled like this (as dior always list all the clothes fibre on their apparel and for this piece, its supposed to be 100% cotton (inclusive of the embroidery) and not exclusive of embroidery as shown below in the first image. or maybe there is a mistake made by the authenticator? different manufacturing places type the label differently? is there a possibility?

Well they introduced a whole new different neck tag around the time this was released so I don’t see why they couldn’t change some wording on the care label also, I don’t know for sure though but it still looks good to me everywhere else.

yes yes, I know what u mean. But for materials wise on care tag, shouldn't it remain the same? since dior website(contemporary dior list all the fibre that the clothing is made up of) list it as 100% cotton, shouldn't the embroidery be cotton too? So why was there a "except embroidery". This means the embroidery is made up of something else (not cotton) which dont tally with dior. coincidentally, the care tag wasnt shown on the seller's listing pictures as well.

That was what was told to me

So is there any chance mine is still the authentic one even though its not 100%cotton even though the real one supposed to be 100% cotton inclusive of embroidery(regardless where u buy from) ? Dang. Unless the CS dont know what he/she is talking.
