Polo "Lacost": the original or a fake?
Many buyers before you buybranded thing, ask the question: "Is this the original exactly?". Now there are many online stores that issue fakes for products of famous brands. So what are the differences between the original polo from "Lacoste" and the replica?
Brief description of the products "Lacoste"
Recognizable features - small sleeves with cuffson the elastic band and a collar with two buttons. Men's polo (original from "Lacoste") are made only from 100% cotton. This is what provides an excellent and long toe, pleasant tactile sensations and freedom of movement.
Fabric brand "Lacoste" consists of complex threadlike plexus, forming the silhouettes of honeycombs. This material is called a "peak", it is strong and stretchable, but at the same time light and thin.
What should I look for?
To know how to distinguish the original "Lacost" from a replica, it is necessary to take into account several important points.
One of the main differences between the original productfakes - this is the point of sale, a branded store, where buyers are provided with only a real brand. However, do not forget that there are stores that contract with famous brands. They also sell the original product. It is clear that the search for the original polo "Lacoste", for example, in the market is not worth it.
Also it is necessary to treat with special careonline shopping. In them most often they can give replicas and fakes for the original Polo "Lacoste". Unscrupulous owners of such resources use the fact that they can get a big profit by giving a cue for the brand. This happens for the simple reason that many consumers nowadays prefer to order everything through the Internet.
What should be the logo?
The second important point when choosing the originalpolo "Lacoste" is a logo. Most often it is green, but it can be of a different color. It depends on the collection. Therefore, more attention should be paid to the quality of the tailoring of the logo, and not to its style.
The crocodile should be clear. Carefully consider the details of the logo, such as claws and teeth. The official logo is a deep dark green reptile with clearly visible teeth and claws. The upper jaw is smaller than the lower one and is directed upwards. The tail of the crocodile should be rounded and try to go where the jaw is, but not on the body. Eyes should also look more slit-shaped than rounded.
The buyer must ensure thatthe logo is on a white background (patch), the weak contour is visible from the wrong side, and the outlines of the crocodile itself should be barely noticeable, without any colored threads or obvious machine stitch.
It should be remembered that the logo is under the secondbutton collar. The crocodile will be exactly in the middle of the left side of the shirt. It should be between the second button and the bottom line on the collar. When creating substandard counterfeits, manufacturers often align the crocodile with the bottom line. It can also seem crooked.
Difference in buttons
On the original polo "Lacoste" there are two buttons. One is located at the top, and the second - below. They should be completely identical and have no differences. Each button should have only two holes with a thread passing through them.
To know how to distinguish the original polo "Lacoste"from forgery, you need to pay attention to the material itself, from which the buttons are made. At "Lacoste" they are pearly and flicker, if you look from afar. They are released serially and they look the same, but there should not be any inscriptions on them.
To make sure of authenticity, you can try to knock on buttons or even try on the tooth - pearlescent will be more rigid and dense, unlike plastic and counterfeit ones.
Learning the label of the shirt
The required number of tags (labels) is two. On one is written the brand name and the logo is represented, and on the second - the rules of care, material and also the producing country. It could be Turkey, Morocco or Peru. The original Polo "Lacost", made in France, is very rare.
To find a label with instructions for washing,you need to look into the lower inner edge of the polo, where there must be an inscription "100% cotton" printed in seven languages. The seam should not overlap the letters on the label.
Forewarned is forearmed. In order not to run into a fake and not be disappointed in your purchase, you need to be careful when ordering things from unproven manufacturers, and buy products of famous brands only in branded stores.
