PostSubject: Jerseys from China   Thu Oct 09 2008, 10:45

From everything I've read, and heard, there are no authorized NFL jerseys made or distributed in China. So that being said, any jersey purchased from an agent in China would be fake, or bootleg. Does anyone know if this is always true? I stumbled across the website lightinthebox.com selling replicas fairly cheap. And this would explain the replicas on eBay selling for 40 - 50 USD, brand new. The NFL and team sites are still selling replicas for 70 -80 USD. I was hoping that the fake authentics were driving down the price of replicas, but it may be that the Chinese are now getting into the replica game.

I'd very much doubt that they are the replica jersey, they'll be sewn fakes as these are easier to make, all you need is a workforce who can sew, something the Chinese aren't short of is people, opposed to expensive machinery to screenprint.

agreed i think they will be fake authentics rather than replicas.that website reminds me of another chinese wholesale website that offers fake authentics for stupidly cheap prices.i cant name that site in public just in case sellers of fakes read this and don't know about it.when buying jerseys i would recomend avoiding the chinese like the plague because 99% of the time the jersey you buy will be fake.

After looking at the site again, I'm not sure why I thought those were replicas. Probably because they did not boast in the description about sewn on letters and numbers. And the sizes were in letters, instead of numbers.

So are you saying that the fakes from China are sewn by hand? As opposed to being mass produced by machinery? I'm not doubting you. I actually never considered that they were hand sewn. I just assumed that that many jerseys were being pumped out of factorys.

This is very odd. Or maybe it's not. While editing my profile one of the added advertizers was.........Lightinthebox.com and it read as follows; Replica jerseys for Sale Only $15.66, Fast Shipping
www.LightInTheBox.com/Jersey. Shocked So what's up with that, anyone know? I'm aware that this site is hosted on a free website. So your not reasponsilble for some of the advertizing.

As far as i know, the advertising picks up on keywords. None of the adverts on the site are endorsed by the site, and i dont think they can be removed

Chuck, I mean't that it requires more skilled labour to produce screenprinted jerseys that sewn ones. The fakes are made in sweatshops, employing/keeping in conditions of slavery, children and the poor sometimes chained to their sewing machines for over 16 hours a day.

I have no control over the adverts placed by the host company. Ninersfan is right the ads are placed there by searching for keywords in the content. I ask everyone to ignore them as most of them are fake sellers.

I totally understand about the free ads.
My whole point of this was that this company is, I believe, selling replicas. So is that legit, or are they bootlegging replicas also? I've seen a slight drop in replica prices on some sites and eBay. And was wondering if Lightinthebox was the reason.

No, I'm sure that they are fake authentic's and they are only calling them replica's to confuse any buyers. Once they have your money they'll send you the fakes and flower it up, telling you what a great deal you are getting, when you email and say that they sent sewn jerseys.

I just saw that site advertised on my Gmail account. If anyone thinks they are getting real jerseys for that price, they must be smoking some pretty strong stuff.
