Many Lacoste shirts on Ebay are fakes, but there are the few that are authentic.

How to spot Authentic Lacoste Polo Shirts from fakes:

  • Have a Devanlay Care Tag inside the bottom left corner of the shirt.
  • Have a Crocodile on the left breast of the shirt, facing outward.
  • Have a placket with 2 buttons and the buttons have 2 holes, rather than four.
  • Are designed in France and made in Peru by Devanlay.
  • Have a European size number, for example: 4 (small), 5 (medium), etc.
  • Run small to fit.
  • For men, polos are 100% cotton.
  • Do NOT say Lacoste on the buttons of the polo shirts.
  • Have an open hem at the bottom of the shirt, unlike Ralph Lauren polos that have vented hems.
  • Tags for short sleeve solid color shirts are listed as $72 and $85 for striped shirts (unlike many fakes that are listed at $79).

For the record, when buying authentic Lacoste Polo Shirts make sure the Crocodiles are sewn on straight and are bought from a US or European citizen (do not trust shirts that come from China etc.  They are more than likely fakes). Make sure you follow all of the guidelines I listed above.
