Default Steeler jerseys

I got a Lambert jersey yesterday for dirt cheap yesterday from my cousin who gets them for next to nothing. He has a whole crapload of them.



I took the jersey and compared it to a jersey I paid $300 for and it was exactly the same. Everything stitched on, name not crooked and not misspelled, NFL Equipment logo, Steelers logo stitched on (well EVERYTHING was stitched on...), reebok logo and tags....



Why are these so cheap? Does anyone know? It was literally just as flawless as the one I paid big bucks for.

Clothing is not very difficult or costly to produce. You can take anyone who is good at sewing and they can put together an EXACT copy of a garment for whatever the cost of the materials are. I saw this one guy in Korea make an entire addidas warm up in 10 min. from rolls of sewing material. He didn't make ONE mistake while doing it. He said it costs him about $1.50 (US dollars) to make it.... he was selling them for $20.... as well as EXACT replicas of Jordans.... Cost him $ 4.00.... to make..... selling for $30.... Theres a Korean guy on ebay selling jerseys right now for 24.99.....

they took about 10-11 days from placing the order until they arrived at my home, not-bad coming from China (note the insignia sewn into the collar)











although I was ripped pretty-good on the Penguin's Forum when I bought from the Chi-Coms for not paying $200+ for the real-deal, I couldn't justify that cost:
had I not spent so-much coin on the 'Guins in the '70s and '80s when they stunk-out the joint, maybe I'd had enough money left-over..... but had I not bought all those tickets, maybe they'd be playing in Hamilton/Burlington by now, too.


My fiancee also (unknowingly) bought me a #86 WARD/throwback jersey last Christmas from borntrade.com (before I knew that site existed), and it, too, seems like a decent-quality item to me:
if somebody wants a picture posted of it, gimme a yell, then I'll take a picture and post it here, too.

I order from there all the time. My order totally got messed up recenyly. Had 20 jerseys ordered in 2 packages. First 11 were great but the 2nd 9 were all wrong!!! None of them were what I had ordered. All were Pittsburgh teams- 4 size 48 Steelers, 1 kids steelers, 1 Jets Namath size 48, 2 Penguins size 48, and 1 polamalu pro bowl size 48. I wear size 54 and most of my order was baesball and hockey! anyone ever had this problem? Tried to contact them several times but no reply!!!!!!

When I first went to the Borntrade website I thought what a great deal but why so much for shipping. $25 is a little steep for shipping a Jersey don't you think?

I don't know..... shipping international, especially from China, ain't cheap



In July, I ordered one for me, one for the fiancee, 3 for her daughters, 1 for my Mom, and when my former neighbor/tax-man found out that I was placing an order, he chipped-in with an additional 4 for his immediate family:
my Mom now wants me to get a Malkin sweater for my brother, my fiancee & I each want another Penguins item, and the CPA is ordering 5 Stiller jerseys this time

Oh, I guess I should have looked closer where they were being shipped from, I guess $25 isn't too bad.
