Hmmm......should I order a personalised authentic from nflukshop now for under 100...OR wait til the Nike jerseys appear & pay full price for one of those? VERY tricky choice.... Thoughts?

My view, if you can get the size you want for 100 in a Reebok, then do it. everything I hear on the grapevine is that the new Nike jerseys are going to be more expensive than the Reeboks.

Ruth be aware that the official NFLuk site is shop.nfluk.com and not NFLshop.uk.com. This one is a Chinese counterfeiter who has copied the nfluk site.

Yeah, just realised that! I started looking a little closer, got suspicious when I saw patches on jerseys, then when I looked at FAQs, etc there were spelling mistakes, bad grammar, etc! "If it looks too good to be true it probably is," eh?

Just been in touch with PatriotsProShop.com. They can provide custom jerseys, home and away (they donn't customise the red ones, apparently) BUT they are not reduced. They say there is no discount planned as yet, but that may change as the changover gets closer. Not sure how close they want it.....must be waiting for the Nike stock to actually arrive. Bit of a bummer. Wish I knew just how much the new Nike jerseys were going to cost; no-one can say yet!

From what I've heard the Nike jerseys will be more expensive than the Reeboks.

Question is, do I hang on in the hope they reduce the price, or go ahead in case they run out (like they did at other outlets.) Why am I so bad at decisions??!!

See that really annoys me. I could pick up a 2010/11 texas longhorns gameworn jersey off their website for $179, yet an authentic nfl jersey will probable cost double. Plus college jerseys look better. I wanted a customised pats jersey but they said they only had xxl left. Will companies be able to customise reeboks once nike take over??

Im taking the risk. If they sell out i'm going to get a Texas game worn and hopefully a 'tackle twill/premier' Gronkowski throwback

OK, pondering over I reckon! I was considering maybe a Mayo authentic throwback instead...but oddly enough decided against it when I enquired about shipping & I was told that for that value of a jersey, shipping would be $150!!! Over $400 for a jersey (and an old one at that) ......I think not.

OK, have found a size 60 which I can get customised. Obviously I'd have to have it tailored to fit me. Have to decide whether to get my name, or Gronk! I'm kinda leaning towards Gronk, and then getting a custom Nike with my name at some stage. Hmmm.... (flip me I am bad at decisions!!!)

Have heard from TerryZom on JerseyCentral.org that these jerseys are thin & not very good quality. Does anyone have one & can comment??

Saying the throwbacks are thinner?? i assumed they were the same material. The only thing i could see affecting the quality is where the jersey is manufactured, although i will probably be proven wrong Smile

This is what he said:

Reebok red jerseys were made in Vietnam of what many feel are the flimsiest material used during the run. It's too bad the Pats didn't reintroduce the red until the AFL 50th anniversary. I just wouldn't bother to tailor one of these Vietnam jerseys, the El Salvador and 2005-2007 Korea were just that much better

Only problem with that logic is that the Patriots didnt have red throwbacks until 2008 (except the 2002 thanksgiving jersey) so there never was any made of better material. My Tomlinson authentic is from Vietnam and i wouldnt call it 'flimsy'
