    I just received this purple cable knit RL sweater today (bought on eBay) and wanted to know if it members could help me to know if it is fake. The tag says Made in Hong Kong, the back of the size tag has RN 41381 on it -- which checks out to RL USA. Under the main tag another tag says 90% Merino Wool and 10% Angora Rabbit Hair. The cleaning label at the bottom on the inside says Dry Clean and on the back of it it says PCA-06W.

    I'm skeptical because I do not see this particular mix of material on the Polo website or anywhere for that matter except eBay and other discount sites online. If anyone could share info I would appreciate it. Thanks.

    I don't know about the other details, but Polo definitely makes a merino/angora sweater. The website only has a fraction of their products.

    I'm pretty sure it is real. Maybe a past season, but I know I've seen that tag before.

    That looks legit to me, what material is the logo made from. Compare to known blue label logo's.
