The only issues I've found with the thai rip off versions found on dhgate is that the material is not the breathable stuff you'd get with the proper replica. Uncomfortable to play football or do any strenuous exercise in.
Helps if you go with "player version" - basically same price but it has the vent holes running down the back and all that. But since they are also tighter fitting you nearly want to go up 2 sizes for a player version - since thai regular replica versions are already a size smaller to begin with.

Re: postage. Depends on what way it is posted and from whee. If regular China Post, can be 3-4 weeks. Just depends on when it makes it to the plane and what route it flies. I've had some come direct to Dublin, others land in Holland first and then onto Ireland adding to the time.

I've ordered a few kits from DH Gate and all of them have arrived to the UK within 7-10 days.

This is the one I ordered a few weeks ago.

I hope the quality of the shirt is better than that picture.
I found this comment strange as the picture quality is fine for me. In fact it's too big so I logged out and viewed the page again and for some reason, it's like you say - poor quality - small and grainy. Weird.

To be fair I'm only viewing on mobile but pictures are usually much better quality and it won't enlarge when i click it.

Hmm I'm using mobile browser too. The picture quality is very good and it will enlarge with a click when I'm logged in. If I log out or use private browser, it won't enlarge and the quality is poor.

EDIT - Here is the initial image for anyone seeing a poor quality image.

It must be something to do with my browser, i open that link and it shows the picture perfect for a few seconds then it sort of stretches into a grainy picture.

For what it's worth the shirt looks great for them two or three seconds.

Thanks for the tip guys, just received mine but can't post pictures. It looks pretty good for a tenner, would order again.
Very tiny slight issue though, my Away Arsenal Shirt has #10 MANÉ behind instead of Özil. :annoyed:
So yeah....guess i'm out of pocket on this one :lol:

Received my DH order yesterday, ordered last year's black away kit, but not the player issued version. Overall it's pretty good, definitely pleased I went a size up as it fits smaller than usual. The only issues are the stitching around the Adidas logo and the badge which are white, and not as tidy as a real shirt. If they'd used black stitching it would have made this issue a moot point. For £13 you can't complain though, I'd say a solid 8/10, though I would probably buy a genuine home strip next time, and use DH if I wanted the away or third kits.

Can someone please link me a seller that does the player issue versions of our kits this year?

I've found absolutely loads of good sellers, but I can't seem to find any doing the player versions that have more than about 10 orders.

Anyone found a good seller for the full kits for adult and kids?

I've only been able to find sellers for the shirts mainly but not much luck in shorts or socks this year.

Trying to find a few teams as well, shame most of those only do the same dozen or so teams.

P.s. For all those asking, the best sellers are either jerseypremium or liangjinpeng

If anyone has any other stores please feel free to either post or PM

Thank you

Bought the PSG away shirt off DH Gate. Really happy with it - took only 8 days to arrive and that was using the economy delivery service.

Now waiting for the delivery of Fulham and LAFC shirts.

When getting the blue away, does it not look seriously fake? How can they put out a good plastic version of that jersey?

If anyone does find a seller for the pink kit in children's sizes please let me know. I've messaged a few but no luck so far.

Just be careful drying it outside in the sun, I have one and my daughter does and they both got sun bleached and are now slightly purple

Haven’t seen anyone post about Soccer Lords on here yet! Using them for 9 years now never had an issue apart from customs destroying my Columbia top this year.

Price has gone up to £23 a shirt was £19 still couldn’t tell the difference
