    Stay away from mikecobra97 on ebay. He sells fake Polo shirts and even sends them in the wrong color. He sent a cream colored Polo Sport one when I won a peach colored POlo Ralph Lauren shir. He says that he sent the right one and I am wrong. Please stay away from him.

    The shirts had no care tag anywhere on them. They Polo tag was just stuck through the button hole and not attached anyway and the shirt was so thin it was see through. The pony on it was very disfigured. I compared it to one at my store and the differences were easy to see.

    Sounds like a similar experience I recently had with the seller "Tullyfields". The seller's feedback was pretty good so I took the chance and ordered a Hugo Boss polo. The embroidery was very crappy and the tag that indicated where it was made was missing. I wonder why other people that buy from these sellers can't tell what they are buying is fake. It was very evident with these shirts.

    Why would you even buy RL polo shirts off Ebay? They are ubitiquous -- outlets, Marshalls, TJMaxx, Bluefly, etc., usually for about $29.

    Seems hardly worth the hassle.

    Usually in semi-plentiful supply in thrift stores as well.

    You could have just described an authentic Boss shirt as well. KIDDING. KIDDING. Just a little fun at their expense...

    For Polo clothing items, I stick to EBay sellers Polosphere and prl67. Both carry a wide variety of RL items at often incredible prices. Lots of RLPL too.

    I know they are not the best, but I just wanted to pick up a few polo shirts for cheap. I own a few other Boss shirts that were nowhere near as bad as that one. The label wasn't even attempted to made in a decent manner. The seller then claimed that this NWT shirt was used. What the hell?

    That's obviously an awful experience. I hope you mentioned it in your feedback so others of us won't get cheated in the same way.

    Ebay was the only place I could find the size and color I wa slooking for. It was a peach colored shirt I needed and couldn't find it on discount anywhere else.
