All right, I'm just trying to figure out where jerseys were made and by who.

USA - Wilson, Champion, Apex, Sand-Knit

El Salvador - Starter and maybe Puma?

Nike and Adidas - ???

Vietnam, Korea, and China - Reebok

Reebok may have also had stuff made in El Salvador possibly?

What else?

All mine are pretty much game worn, so it's all Berlin, WI; USA.

I'm looking for retail authentic jerseys as game worn are a bit expensive. Any info on that?

More importantly, I am curious on the material used for gamer jerseys vs. retail authentic.

I want to know how impressed I would be with a gamer vs. a custom with EPS stitching.

In you original post, you've pretty much got the whole list sorted out. Reebok did make some of their jerseys in El Salvador and I think they were probably the best of the bunch. They did make a very small amount of jerseys in China, mainly Dolphins, but none recently and most of the jerseys with a made in China tag were counterfeit. By far the best stuff is made in the US, but you are looking at vintage or gamers there.

I'm not too sure where Nike or Adidas made their jerseys. I'm sure Nike was El Salvador for a period. Reebok is owned by Adidas, so I imagine they used the same locations as Reebok.

The difference between the gamer and the retail authentic is basically the cut of the jersey, they are made of the same materials. The gamer is sculpted to the body more to reduce the amount of material grabbed by your opponent. The retail is a little more generous for us armchair fans to allow for growth in the beer and hot dog dept. The gamers are all made by Ripon in Berlin, USA and you know that the retail is made in the far east these days.

So if you are of an athletic build then a gamer would be real cool, but if like me, you resemble a retired Dlineman then go for the retail for a bit more comfort.

Or be like me, a "retired" looking punter with a bit of a beer belly and suck your gut in while wearing form-fitting game jerseys, lol...

Seriously though, Billsfan summed it all up quite nicely and accurately for you.

Thank you very much guys, I can't tell you how much I appreciate your responses and how you have clarified it up for me. Cut doesn't matter. While I would prefer something made in America, if the materials don't matter, it doesn't matter to me. I know also I have the choice of better customizing with EPS over Stahl's as well.

I will be picking up a customized authentic at some point and I will be sure to post pictures when I get it.
