Thrift Store - Lacoste Shirts

I come across at least one Lacoste shirt almost every time I go Thrift Store shopping and today I found 3. They are usually selling between $2.99-$4.99 at Thrift stores and sometimes you can get them half off those prices. I have sold used Lacoste polo shirts on eBay with great success even if they are not in perfect condition. The key to selling Lacoste Polo Shirts is to make sure they are 100% Authentic. There are a lot of fakes out there, but everyone I have sold is authentic because I know what to look for.

Here is how to tell if your Lacoste shirt is legit.

- A genuine Lacoste crocodile should be very detailed & tightly stitched. You should see teeth and claws.
-On men’s polos, the crocodile is on the left hand side, between the bottom button and the placket.
-Solid Lacoste Polos have 2 Mother of Pearl buttons. The buttons have two holes in them and are threaded horizontally. Some of the striped Lacoste polos may have 3 buttons. Make sure there is nothing written on the buttons.
-The tag on the inside of the shirt towards the top collar will be sized in numbers on the top left. Either US sizing (4, 5, 6, 7, etc.) or European sizing (40, 42, 44 etc.) The tag will never be M, L, XL.

-The croc on the tag should also be detailed. You should be able to see the whites in the eyes.
OK you are now ready to go find some Pre-Owned Lacoste shirts. Just make sure to save some for me.
