VN Express reports that a large number of fake Lacoste shirts have been seized in Vietnam:

Authorities have confiscated thousands of fake branded T-shirts carrying names like Nike, Gucci, Lacoste and Adidas from a garment maker in Hai Duong.

A Friday inspection by the provincial market surveillance department found that the factory run by the Dang Linh HD Garment Co. Ltd, using four industrial sewing machines, was making fake branded T-shirts.

The department seized 6,446 finished T-shirts and 2,050 unfinished ones, apart from several kilograms of accessories like buttons, sewing thread and plastic covers, for further verification and investigation.
