    My definitive Authentic vs Knockoff Jersey thread

    Ok so if you haven't seen my posts before, I own a real authentic Ronnie Brown jersey and I became aware of the internet konckoffs and was intrigued by the price. I ordered one, it was garbage so they sent me another for free. These are up close detailed comparison photos of the real authentic vs the good knockoff i received.


    First things first the embroidery on the numbers:

    This is a closeup of the REAL jersey

    Now the Knockoff;


    The Knockoff is not embroidered trim, i hope you can see what i tried to photograph, there is a piece of orange material sown in with the aqua and navy blue, The real jersey has orange embroidery around the aqua numbers, no piece of orange material


    The NFL Players Patch:
    This is the REAL Authentic, notice the NFL PA logo is multicolored.



    Now The Knockoff:
    The Knock off has the NFL PA logo in less colors




    Now the Shoulder numbers.
    Real Authentic: Embroidered orange trim around an aqua piece of material.


    KnockOff: I think this shows their method the best, it is clearly three pieces of material, navy, orange, aqua, all stitched over eachother, not like the real authentic.


    The last pics will be of the inside of the jersey, under the numbers.

    REAL Authentic: the numbers have a heavy backing to keep their shape, I wear mine often so its starting to come off but you get the picture. You can also clearly see the orange embroidery.



    Knockoff construction: no backing to the numbers, and you can see the outline of the three pieces of material.




    Now hopefully this will shed some light on the knockoff internet jersey situation. All this said I'm actually very happy with the knockoff in these photos, for the price its great and only a nerd like me will see these details from a distance.
    I just want this to be a reference to all the scammers trying to sell knockoffs at $100+. I do have some more comparison photos if anyone wants to see them.

    Another dead giveaway and i feel is the biggest eyesore is the shiny letters on the knock offs.


    But like i said in many previous posts that i dont have a problem with people wearing these jerseys; just only when they claim to be the real deal. Just hope no one spends more than 30 bucks on these jerseys.

    wrong...

    Actually, I'm going to say that the guy who made this post is the one with the fake jersey. Take a look at this video from NFLSHOP.COM, and tell me if his "authentic" brown jersey looks anything like the jerseys in this video

    So unless you got that jersey off of Ronnie Brown's back, I don't see how it can be considered real.

    You forgot one comparison...AAuthentic Jersey about $285 plus shipping. Knock off $25 plus shipping. I can live with orange stitching for that savings. I have a site I buy from www.nflnhlshop.com and could not be happier. Throwbacks, Orange jerseys, etc. etc. even Miami Heat James. All for less than one "authentic" jersey.

    Oh dont get me wrong, i love what i got for the money. Im going to be buying more soon. I just wanted to show people the difference.

    On another note no one has to believe me but the ronnie brown i have is a real $300 authentic. its obvious in person. I just wanted to be informative for other fans so they know what theyre getting for the money either way they decide to go.

    Thanks for the post. Anyone trying to prevent people getting ripped off is always a good thing.

    One day I hope to have the money to get an Authentic jersey, or at least I hope my wife will get the hint. Until then my $30 knockoff jersey that smells like gasoline will have to do.
