Jerseys from China

Submitted by jeff_91121 on August 30th, 2016 at 6:43 PM

I took the chance a few weeks ago and bought 3 jerseys from China, an old Nike style Woodson away jersey, an away CCM style Yzerman jersey, and an away Verlander Majestic style. They all cost around $20 each along with $20 to ship and $20 for insurance. I'm pretty impressed with the quality of all of them. I went back and forth with sizing when I bought them and I wish I had gone one size bigger with the Woodson jersey but the other 2 fit great. Granted I don't know how they will last after several wash/dry cycles. I've wash and dried them all once and there was no bleeding or threads coming loose.

To those who are against buying "replica" jerseys from China, I get it, but I just can't rationalize or afford to spend a couple hundred dollars on a jersey.

To anyone that has any questions about the jerseys, ask away. I am not sure what the rules are for posting the site I used but if it is ok to post that info I will. Honestly most of the sites I looked at had the same products.

I can also post pics if anyone is interested.

So I'll just get this cheap Chinese knockoff.

What's that? You're closing the plant and moving it to China? You bastards! How am I supposed to support my family now?!?!

/yes, I'd like fries with that.

Here is something to think about.

"Last month, Futurism.com reported that, “137 million workers from five Southeast Asian countries are in danger of being replaced by automated systems in the next 20 years. The International Labour Organisation says that laborers working in the manufacturing industry, the garment industry most of all, are at the highest risk.”
That doesn’t even count China."

That's from this article. Interesting stuff. https://shift.newco.co/the-real-reason-this-elephant-chart-is-terrifyin…

Being a business owner and having a family, I understand that saving money is important.  I also understand that making money is important.  It's hard for me to tell you to support a business that makes billions a year by under cutting small businesses through out sourcing.  I will still choose not to buy a damn thing from China if I can avoid it.

Almost always seem great at first. Once the excitement of the great price is replaced with the reality of shoddy quality and zero customer service, you will realize you wasted $100. You always get what you pay for in the long run. Give me the real thing from Nike all day. I just received my Nike / Jumpman #4 white road jersey and it is a perfect replica or a real game uniform in every way. Worth every penny of the $135 I paid for it. America > China ... Always.

I'm sure it's nice, but it's not a replica of the game uniforms. WD can tell you more about the different tiers of Nike jerseys sold, but even the most expensive jerseys at the M Den are not authentic, in the same way that even a hockey jersey with embroidery can lack a fight strap, etc. I see no problem with OP trying to save $100+ except that Michigan doesn't see the (admittedly very small) revenue from the Chinese jersey, but I'm in the same boat being unable to afford a $150 shirt.

I can't tell you how many times I bought a shirt or a hoodie from an American company and it came with threads already unravelled.

Newflash buddy, once a time I worked at the Weber Grill Factory and I can tell you that those high quality American products are made by immigrants making minimum wage. It's even worse now that companies have to pay for health care because they circumvent that by getting 90% of their labor force from temp agencies. It's all a sham.
