This just confirms that COA’s really aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on
The COA is about the signature. It says nothing about the jumper, neither does the listing. Yes, an awful lot is implied, I know...

Decent effort, would've been a fair pain in the ass writing all those names onto the jumper..

What's the giveaway? The bottom stitching? Because I'm struggling to see the difference other than where the stripes start.
Most obvious differences is bigger jock tag, the "We Fly As One" in the collar is very dodgy, and Toyota font is not same width as the badge (and whole logo is navy instead of black). 1918 in the ONeills logo is wrong font too

I really should have picked up on the WFAO text 🤦‍♂️

Sort of PI set up, with cuffs but without the reinforced stitching. Material doesn't look right, something off about the CGU logo as well.

The fakes are getting pretty good.

Conveniently I just saw one of these shirts in its OWN BOX going for $188 AFTER this arrived.

Returning it, and getting back all the moneys.

The prices on these things and the amount of fakes are just insane, you could probably get an original nike one for about that price.

Obvious to us, but pretty good otherwise. They even got the side panels overlapping the cuffs correctly.

At least it specifies that its a replica in both the title and description. They’re not trying to actively deceive anyone.
Yeh, can't really be too angry at a bloke that has made it clear that it's a replica. Even if it is a fake, it's a quality looking kit and you wouldn't see many (legit or fake) going around anyway.

Even has the weirdly thin sides towards the middle. What I gather from this is that Star jumpers were outsourced to a company that also can make custom uniforms.

Comes from the same factory that produced Star stuff. 🤙
