    If you check for fakes...always go for the price tags. This looks like a pretty real price tag. Type in the code on the price tag into google and see if it fits the coat!

    Is this Lacoste Polo fake?
    [​IMG]


    Found this on the bay. There are other photos. The croc patch is placed correctly, and the buttons seem to be MOP, but I am not sure about this tag. The fact that it says "Made in France" and is not a Chemise Lacoste polo makes me think it's fake, but I'm not sure what the early ones made during Lacoste's "comeback" when they were still made in France


    first post, btw



    Thanks

    I only have one Lacoste polo that I purchased several years ago at Nordstrom and it says "Designed in France" and "Made in Peru." I don't know what the exact labeling would be nowadays.

    My buddy has good contacts to "far east". I can literally guarantee you, everything you don't buy at the polo store is fake, when it comes to a cheaper price. On a fake polo you get: -a price tag (in $ with the name) -the exact same fabrics (made in the same factories) still a worse product If you want to buy a polo, walk in your nearest store and scoop it there!

    Those look authentic to me. I'm not an expert, but I bought a pair of sunglasses, and they arrived in a nearly identical case with all that same stuff.

    Thanks brokencycle. Does anyone else have an answer for the authenticity of these glasses? The stickers that's suppose to be on the clear plastic wasn't there also the sticker on the box was ripped off as well that's why I'm a little worried.

    Ask him for the little sticker that is always on the box which identifies the model, colorway etc.

    Dolce & Gabbana Shirts I have recently acquired, I really don't know enough of what to look for to authenticate them, so I seek your help!

    From two different sources, and the tags are attached quite differently, but have no gauge of how old either are.
