Re: Discount jerseys
I'm starting to like to wear the real NFL Replica jerseys with the screen numbers; they are alot more comfortable than the Chineese sewn jerseys. I do have the chinnese jerseys and they are good throw around jerseys, but not very comfortable.
Here are the reasons they are uncomfortable and the dead give aways they are knockoff chineese:
1. The numbers are usually really big and there thickness makes them less pliable which makes them uncomfortable especially when sitting down. The numbers on a real authentic are sewn on but really thin, so it makes the whole jersey comfortably fit better.
2. A dead give away is the NFL logo in the shape of a shield that sits at the bottom of the the V in the front of the collar in the front of the chest. On an authentic jersey the bottom of the sheild comes all the way down and touches the stitching line that runs horizontilly across the front of the chest. On the chineese version the NFL sheild is placed about a half an inch too high and the bottom of that shield does not reach the horizontal stitching line that runs across the chest.
3. Another dead give away is the colored stripe on the shoulders. On Authintic jerseys the stripe is thin and neat looking, with the corners of each strip sewing up nicely with the other lines of the jersey on under armpitt side. On the chineese version the stripe is really thick (double the size almost) and not the right material, which IMO makes the whole jersey look sloppy, because of the size and not sewn on to match the rest of the lines on jersey.
4. Also on The chineese jerseys the collar is a silky material that does not lay flat on your neck, which also makes the jersey look sloppy, The Texans writting on the chest is all connected by the same thread, and on the tag located at the bottom left of the jersey with the size there is usually more infromation on it than just the size.
