    A quick browse in a local team store shows me that the prices of football tops are still beyond extortionate, so I was wondering if there is such a place which offers the kind of price reductions I've become accustomed to with the advent of the internet?

    Bit of a bump here, but just wondering if anyone's heard of the footie-shirt selling website bornprosper.com or bestway4you.com? Are they fakes or are they the real deal?

    I've had a mate recommend them to me recently but I think they must be too good to be true.

    Seems as good a place as any to repost this after I got no response the other day :)

    Geesh, this crowd seem to do tops for 8. I've no idea if they're legit or not though :/

    they're 14 delievered and are legit, in that they're not counterfeit.

    I think the model works like this:

    Nike/Adidas - Hi sweat shop owner I'd like 50,000 strips
    Sweat shop owner - Sure*makes 52,000 and sells the difference

    Cheers for the info dutch, didn't notice the delivery charge when I first looked!

    Leaves one in a bit of an ethical quandary about whether to purchase or not though...

    That's a question about whether you should buy football strips at all though, isn't it?

    These are made by the same tear-stained urchins that the 'legit' ones are, they just cost you 30 less.

    Also, they're US size i.e. medium is pretty big. But since most adults that wear football tops do not do so for sport, but instead to constrain their morbid obesity, that's probably not a problem.

    It'll take about 10 days to arrive from Thailand incidentally.

    Wow, the thread was actually a success then. Bestway4you it is. Now, not being a fan of football myself, I need to find a top which simply looks good :D

    Shite all loading for me either. I think its the same company that used to go under the name Jomzajung (or something very similar).

    I had order from them a few times. Pretty decent.. not perfects though. Their site got shut down though

    Edit: oh loading now again for some reason. Definitely Jomzajung.

    Anyone got recieved any of these jerseys yet? I'm thinking about picking up one for the world cup, unfortunately almost all the jerseys are medium to extra large and judging by the size guide a small would fit me.

    Just to let you know, these shirts are fakes. They're quite good, and not many people could tell the difference, but they're fake nontheless.

    Just a heads up if anyone is after the genuine article.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    I got some off the Jomzajung site 2 years ago for the Euros, and they were legit looking to me. They can have some dodgy ones that get sent out from other forums that I go on, but for International kits, they are great and most importantly, cheap.

    To get an idea of kits, go to JJB Sports or Sports Soccer, find a similar kit by said manufacturer and then order that size. Can't usually go wrong with XL :)

    I am a regular online frugal shopper and mostly use cash back portals like Bing, ShopAtHome, AAfter Search and Ebates.

    I case anyone is on the fence I can vouch for bornprosper offering up near-as-damnit perfect shirts, which must be seconds as good as they are. Have ordered prem and international kits from them before. The materials, cut and logos are all exactly right. Nobody else would think they are fakes. The only differences you sometimes spot are like lack of elastic in hems and the like. For nike shirts, their sizes are the same as the UK. Umbro you might want to go a size bigger. I usually just go M.

    The thing is though, there's barely any difference quality wise between fakes and the real shirts. It mostly comes down to the wearer having the knowledge of what he's wearing, just like designer labels.

    Footie shirts sure as hell don't cost 40 to make (they don't cost 8 either but that's a much smaller profit margin), they've always been disgustingly marked up, just like seat prices.

    Anyone ordered the England away from bornprosper and chosen the ENGLAND 09-11 lettering? I want to know if that's the same font they use on the real shirts, or not - and whether they put a squad number on the front of the shirt or not. PM me if you don't want to post about it on the forum.

    I've ordered an Italy top. Worth a punt at that price. I'll report back on the quality when it arrives.

    Hope you got "CUNT" and whatever number Henry is on the back.

    I've used Bestway/Jomzajung/Bornproser before but went with Soccer Triads this time. Wanted to New Zealand jersey (my adopted WC team).

    If it goes well i'll pick up a few more, Holland Away, Japan and Korea Home too probably

    Mine hasn't arrived yet, must take ages to get here with the standard postage.

    Went for the Spain one. Comparing the sizes on the site with one here, a M size is about an XL here. Have to wait and see if that's true.

    Well with all the positive feedback, it would seem although it's taking a while, you have nothing to worry about, WooHoo. After you get your shirt I'll go ahead and buy one, as soon as I know which size to buy :)

    P.S. I know Americans are generally fatter, but US M = UK XL? Surely they aren't that big.
