Hey everyone,

Im looking at getting a vest for the spring and I've decided to veer more towards RL than CG.

I was looking at RL vests and came across this one from china;





Does anyone know if there is a authentic version of this?

Many Thanks,
Chris

I have one rule. Don't buy shit from China. If you really want this buy something similar from RRL.com

Oh and being a smart ass is all the rage here

Exactly, china's quality is terrible thats why i am looking for authentic.

I am not trying to be a smart ass at all and i apologize if i came off that way it just if i go to answer someones question i don't use sarcasm or at least i give the answer to their question along with a little sarcasm. His answer didn't help me at all, he could have just let me know that it wasn't available. If anything his answer could be refereed to being such. (Not trying to be a smart ass just voicing my opinion)


Thanks Anyways guys!

Applicate it!

Nah man, I am talking about the "you have to be part of the team" comments as being smart ass

Yeah, best bet is to go with anything that's not coming from China. Long wait anyways. Good luck

^^He's asking if there's an authentic American counterpart available for purchase.

And this is the place where grown men start threads -- in all seriousness -- about children's shoes. And not just any children's shoes, but sneakers that MUST COST AT LEAST THREE-HUNDRED DOLLARS!!!11

Hardly any room to poke fun at someone for wanting a logo vest.

Sigh
First, just because you call sneakers "children's shoes", that doesn't make it so Second, falling back on non sequitur ad-hom attacks greatly cheapens your white knight's assistance Third, there is a reason why threads like this are derided here, and that's because they detract from the value of the board and are generally a nuisance and eyesore

Lmao i actually died reading this. Thanks for the back up. Although i do own a pair of Air Yeezys that do cost more than 300.
Although for a kid, id never spend 300 on shoes. And if i did they would have to be made out of unicorn fur, levitate, have every super power know to mankind installed and they must be high tops!

So posting and asking a general question is a nuisance and an eyesore? The wth is the point of this forum or of human existence for that matter. If we didn't ask questions and seek answers mankind as we know it would not be in existence. Also how does this "DETRACT" the value of the board? Are you too "HIGH END" for this vest or my peasantry post? All Hail The King then
. I didn't know a Ralph Lauren Vest was peasantry. Since im not high class for this forum. Your Highness may you please appoint me to a LOWER class forum?

Thank You!
The Peasant

This is a good question and I'm sure it will echo in the bearings of my soul as I fall asleep tonight
