    Several times I have questioned sellers on Ebay listing RLPL footwear that just didn't seem "kosher" to me. Since I am not the best at recognizing "treif" from the rabbinically blessed, do you sartorial mavens know how to discern what shoes are truly RLPL? Thanks much.

    If you are unsure, post the ebay link here (SF) and request help for verification.

    I come across multiple items a week. I believe I read that just because the shoes come in a purple box, that doesn't mean they're RLPL. Sellers advertise footwear as RLPL and market the pair as having a list price of $425.00. That seems disconcertingly low to me. I have brought this to several "Seller's" attention, and they blow me off with, "look at the box color buddy," or "it has a silver "Ralph Lauren signature." These responses just "shake my tree" as I can't stand reprehensible and dishonest merchants that do business on EBay. Thanks though

    You should be able to tell easily by the shoe/sole. RLPL are either made in England or Italy. The Italian ones are made by sassetti and have a distinct looking sole. The English ones should be quite obvious from the styling and should have distinct soles as well... once you've seen them, you'd know. However, there are some Italians and English that aren't RLPL.
