Our jerseys have to be the hardest to copy. The bolts on the sleeves, the color of the jerseys etc. If i was to buy any other teams jerseys off ebay is their anything to even look for such as all the things you have to look for on ours?

Default That's what I want to see...

CLOSEUPS, not fuzzy, and side by sides of an AUTHENTIC vs. a FAKE. Get some good pics in there, guys It could be tough to tell the difference between two different jerseys if they aren't in the same light and ratio. This fake looked decent until I had it next to an Authentic. And, is it just me, or does buying a size 48 McNiel just seem wrong -- that's like 1/2 the material needed to make a real McNiel. I don't feel worthy buying one. LT wears a 48, so I'm cool there (ha!)

Also, what are the jerseys measurements (Body Width, Body Length)?

The Chargers jerseys are the most difficult to replicate, so it is easier to spot obvious flaws.

Looking at the Authentic Station jersey listings and pictures that Thumper previously posted, you can easily spot the poor workmanship.

e.g.

-Bunching and pillowing of fabric and seams (collar, armpit, chest, arm, back/nameplate areas).

-Seams that do not meet properly or evenly (where the bolt panel meets the chest & side panel).

-The jerseys look to be sewn off-bias/crooked (the jerseys can't lay flat).

These flaws are basic...It'd be interesting to know and see close-up photos of the NFL Shield, Chargers logo, the inside construction, the number & nameplate stitching, the color & weight of the jersey fabric.

It's interesting because people are spending alot of money on these apparently poorly constructed jerseys.

you guys, follow 6 one 9's advice and never order from Brian. I just recieved my jersey in the mail and i was very unsatisfied. I wish i would have seen what 6 one 9 posted before i ordered. He said everything is 100% sewn and authentic ( i knew it wasnt going to be authentic but i was expecting something like Authentic Nations jerseys). He had good pics of it up but when i recieved my navy blue Gates from him, the numbers and name were sewn but the bolts were ironed on like the replicas. I have filed a complaint and sent him a message asking for a refund or exchange for another jersey.

I have a jersey question.

Jerseys are either replica, premeir/EQT, or authentic.

But what do you call those cheap jerseys that they sell at stores like Wal-Mart and JCPenney.

Wal-Mart has jerseys that have the helmet on the sleeve, no NFL logo on the collar, and are of lower quality.
The ones I've seen at JCpenney look like replicas, but there is no NFL logo on the collar, the bolts on the side are smaller, and they are of lower quality.

Those two are basically the same other than the differences in sleeves.

I've seen many people wear them, but what exactly are they called. Is there a name for these types of jerseys?
