    As Harmonica said, the mark up on football shirts is truly disgusting, so they're probably still making a fair profit even at these prices.

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

    They're are, kind of. But Nike shirts use their own measuring system. The Nike sizes on bornprosper match up to the UK ones.

    Bear in mind they have somewhat broken english on that site, so when they say US Sizes.. they might not be US sizes. Since they're in Thailand it's more likely they're smaller shirts for their market or the european market.

    I purchased a shirt from bestway4you about 2 years ago, I ordered my usual size however when the shirt arrived it was way too small so never wore it.

    Anybody recieved a shirt from bornprosper? I want to buy a top but bestway4you put me off as the size was wrong.

    I've gotten the Barca home and Argentina away to wear to fives, both of which are spot on.

    Sounds like ordering is a bit slow from bornprosper.com. If I ordered today, I guess I wouldn't stand much chance of getting it in time for the world cup, would I?

    I've made two separate orders with them, both of which took exactly 10 days. They're sent from Thailand.

    I ordered the Dutch away and Portugal home for the Euro's in 08 and they took about 5 days to arrive from Thailand. I was amazed.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    I've been having a look through this thread on another forum. It's quite funny to see just how vehemently some people are against fake football tops. A fella called Shuecraft in there seems to think it's bloody well on par with murder.

    Well it's kinda shitty if you're buying fake tops of a team you support. The money goes in to the club so that's part of your support.

    I'm happy with fake national shirts though. Not comfortable with my money going to the Glazers either, so I might get a fake Utd shirt next year.

    As I said earlier, try on a top from the manufacturer before ordering, as a Nike Large is much different to an Adidas Large for example. I got hit with an Argentina Top that was too small, but managed to sell it on to a mate for the same price.

    I always say use the rough T-shirt sizing as a rule of thumb, be warned that not all shirt makers abide by this:-

    Small - 36/38 inch chest
    M - 38/40
    L - 40/42
    XL - 42/44
    XXL - 44/46

    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

    Just a quick question about Soccer Triads, do you enough if the name and numberings are the correct ones? Seriously tempted to get the Argentina home with numbering and maybe a couple of club ones. There's a nice selection of shirts there, much bigger than the bestway4you site.

    Cheers mate. I'll likely order a couple off there anyway, even if the numbering isn't right.

    Who do you contact if there's an issue? I ordered a shirt off of bornprosper.com and paid at the same time. On the website it says awaiting payment. I have the paypal receipt for the payment.

    Mine stayed at waiting for payment for almost two weeks or thereabouts even though I paid immediately but just checked today and now it finally says shipped. Phew.

    Details are on the website, you can return them if your not satisfied.

    Ok guys, did more research. If you are close to 6ft, it's best to get XL for size.

    Oops. I'm 6ft and I got medium. I'll let you know if it fits or not.

    That can't be right. General consensus until now was that they used American measurements, which meant even a medium was relatively massive. Surely it can't be the other way around, it would make no sense.

    Sent you a message, but for the thread, I'm pretty sure bornprosper use UK sizing for their shirts. That is, Nike and Umbro and Adidas UK/Europe sizes. The shirts I've ordered from them are the same size as real shirts I've bought in UK shops.

    Sorry to bump this again, guys - but did everyone agree that 'born prosper' is the best site?

    I've got to order an Italy and Netherlands shirt for a couple of peeps.
