    I finally got my jersey, it arrived almost exactly 2 weeks after ordering it, which isn't bad considering it came from China. I ordered from dHgate and detail the entire process below.

    First off, dHGate's tracking info was never really updated. It was on the same status for over a week. I had honestly thought it had gotten lost because of the lack of updated information. So if you order from there keep that in mind. Also, I paid $17 and am happy with it for what I spent, but I feel like I may have gotten the worst one of those who have posted on here.

    Here is the back of the jersey. Looks perfect from this angle. The numbers and letters both are nice and straight.

    Here is the front however. It's extremely crooked. Usually if it's just a little off, you can't tell, but this one is so crooked it is noticeable immediately when being worn.

    Also, notice on this picture how wide the collar is. This may be something new on the uniforms, but I compared it to my old jersey and it's more than twice as wide. Has anyone noticed this on theirs?

    Taking a closer look at the lettering, you can see obvious signs of mildew on the nameplate. It arrived in a plastic bag, and that bag was inside the plastic bag the postage attached to - so it was in two plastic bags - but must have been subjected to some moisture. My wife assures me that some spray and wash will take it out.

    One thing I haven't seen anyone mention is if there are seams on their jersey that are different colors. Again, this could be how the authentic jerseys are, but I don't think so. There is one seam in the navy blue material that is gray and I feel it really sticks out.

    Perhaps the most disappointing part of the jersey I got was the shoulder. I went to the stadium to compare the replica jersey to the elite jersey and came to the conclusion that the elite is actually worth the extra money because the entire thing is made of cloth and not screen printed. The best part of that for the new jersey is the sword on the shoulders is two different pieces of silver material. The listing that I purchased my jersey from on dHgate said that it was 100% cloth and several pictures that had been posted here from others who had bought from there had the shoulders as two different pieces of fabric. Well on mine, they did it half right. It's made of material, but to get the darker color for the other half of the sword, they screen printed/painted it on there, and it's not close to being centered or down the middle.

    As you can probably tell from some of the photos, there were a lot of loose threads and some sloppy work. But overall, for $17 I'm not too upset about it. "You get what you pay for" as they say, and I still think I got a good deal. The number on the front being so crooked is what bothers me the most because it's the most noticeable. I may give this one to my brother for his birthday and reorder and see if I don't get a better one the second time.

    Overall, I am happy. When the jerseys first came out, I knew I could only afford one of them and had a hard time deciding which one to get, and now because of dHgate and you guys posting about it, I can get all 3 jerseys for cheaper than the cost of the replica jersey at retail.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I have been to one NFL game in my life. It was a Christmas Eve game against the jags that someone gave me a free ticket to.

    Will not pay the absurd prices for nfl tickets, parking, concessions, etc. simply not even remotely worth the money.

    Thanks for the review.

    I understand it's a knockoff, and I appreciate your taking the time to let us know what the differences/shortcomings are with the one you received.

    That being said, I'll take the Chinese version.

    Looks like the crooked back number seems to be a theme. It's hardly noticeable when worn so I am ok with it. Guess it comes down to how much you wanna pay.

    As for size, my chest is about a 40 and my M fits perfect.

    Too bad @2ToneBlueBlood , that's the worst one I've seen so far. That said, still probably looks alright on and for $17, can't complain.
