So you want to buy a "BIG POLO" shirt by RALPH LAUREN? There are loads of it on eBay! But how do you make sure you are paying that premium price for your pride and joy? Well, for one, polo shirts by the designer Ralph Lauren don't come cheap. At between $75 and $95 dollars not everybody can pay that for a single top. But then its a designer top isnt it?

FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT THE REAL THING!!

But when you see these shirts listed as "AUTHENTIC BIG POLO RALPH LAUREN" shirt, at £9.99  the first question you ask is: Is it REAL? I bet you know the answer! My Advice? Pop down to polo.com and check the specifications such as (a) available colours (if you spot a colour that is not available with the manufacturer and its on offer on eBay!, then how can it be real?), (b) sizes, (c) number tags, (d) price and (e) identfication tags/codes!! Again, check out the way the "polo player" looks !! Most copies have a subtle difference. The best copies would definitely miss out one of these things!! Here is what to look for:

THERE ARE TWO CURRENT TYPES OF RALPH LAUREN BIG POLOS, THE NUMBER "3" RANGE AND THE NUMBER "4" RANGE.

FOR THE "3" RANGE, THE PONY IS THE SAME COLOUR AS THE NUMBER "3" THERE ARE ONLY:

1. WHITE WITH BLUE PONY / "3"

2. WHITE WITH GREEN PONY / "3"

3 WHITE WITH RED PONY / "3"

4. NAVY BLUE(NEWPORT BLUE) WITH RED PONY / "3"

5. NAVY BLUE WITH WHITE PONY / "3"

6. NAVY BLUE WITH YELLOW PONY / "3"

7.GREEN(NORTHWEST PINE) WITH WHITE PONY / "3" (only)

8. BLACK WITH YELLOW PONY / "3"

9. BLACK WITH RED PONY / "3"

10. BLACK WITH WHITE PONY / "3"

FOR THE NUMBER "4" RANGE, THE PONY IS MULTICOLOURED AND THE NUMBER"4" IS ON THE RIGHT SHOULDER. NOTICE THAT THE COLOUR USED FOR THE "4" IS ALSO USED FOR THE HEM/LINING.  THERE ONLY 6 COLOURS:

1. RED WITH MULTI-COLOURED PONY AND "BLUE" "4" AND LINING

2. FRENCH NAVY WITH MULTI-COLOURED PONY AND "WHITE" "4" AND LINING

3. GREEN(NORTHWEST PINE) WITH MULTI-COLOURED PONY AND "RED" "4" AND LINING

4. WHITE WITH MULTI-COLOURED PONY AND "RED" "4" AND LINING

5. BLACK WITH MULTI-COLOURED PONY AND "RED" "4" AND LINING

6. NEWPORT NAVY WITH MULTI-COLOURED PONY AND "RED" "4" AND LINING (The colour THIERY HENRY was wearing when he signed his new ARSENAL contract!)

ANY OTHER COLOUR COMBINATION/ MIX IS DEFINITELY FAKE!!!!!!

FOR PEOPLE WHO dont mind the copies!!

If you are like some of US, who can get away with showing off the FAKE designer gear as if it is the REAL THING(?), then IGNORE the above warning!! HAPPY SHOPPING............
