Last week, I won this auction on Ebay for a Lacoste polo shirt. The item arrived yesterday, so fast that impressed me more. The thing is, the item did not meet the seller's description and buyer's expectation. It's just a real fake. I wanted to like it but couldn't. As soon as I opened the package, I knew for sure that it ain't authentic for these reasons :
- The logo is not embroidered well ; the real one has a very distinct and clear embroidered croc logo on the chest.
- Buttons are not made of mother of pearl but made of plastic with 4 holes, too. The authentic has two mother of the pearl buttons with 2 holes on it and sewn vertically on the shirt.
- Only has one tag. It should have 2 tags on the neck with trademark logo and size (4,6 or 8 on the first tag.
- Washing instruction is not printed with DEVANLAY.
- Fabric is cheap cotton.
For those who buy Lacoste products on Ebay, better watch out. Examine the description carefully, ask for more photos before placing bids or purchasing directly. Don't give your whole trust to sellers with very satisfactory feedbacks. Some of them are selling their products for a low low price to attract buyers.
