Not to mention the ribbons are in reverse order.

Indeed, it also only has one pleat below the collar as well as looking brand new. As far as the latter goes, they can look good for their age, but not brand new from this date I think.

The fabric label was not introduced until some time in the 1920's and in this case post 1922, probably dated 1940's (1945?) and someone has modified it to try and read 1915. The seller or some previous owner needs a slap if you ask me for trying to fake this.
