    when will nike start coming in with new stocks of korea jerseys? apparently i missed the craze and didn't start looking for them until july and now i have to be stuck waiting, i love how nike can torture people like this. according to the law of economics if there's a demand, there's supply, i'm sure there is still a demand, but there's no ************ING supply, apparently nike doesn't know how to follow the law of economics.

    i'll sell you one of the 15 I've got for just $399.99. Inquire for details. That's the lowest price possible. I had to sell 4 oxen and 8 ducks to some farmers for these. If you want anything lower don't even think about it.

    $399.99, is that US dollars? you must be joking right? you'd be ripping me off cause according to an old forum post i read posted on july 25/02 by essvee:

    "if you ever get the time to go to a national team game,
    the Red Devils usually sell authentic printed jerseys for about 40 thou at
    the stadium."

    i'm assuming that is 40000 won, which is about $53 or about $34 US bucks...

    but did you really have to sell 4 oxen and 8 ducks? ducks are pretty cheap man...i don't know about the oxen though.

    Do you live in Korea, or know anyone in Korea?? You can get a cheap one in Dondaemoon. The Nike ones are crap.

    I thought Nike makes the official ones though?? No I don't live in Korea, I know some Korean people but none of them closely enough to ask them about this kind of stuff.

    yeah you got to buy them from a nike shop for authenticity. they restocked here in Korea so I assume https://www.bigsoccer.com/store or http://www.soccer.com should restock soon.

    I know of two sites: www.soccerplus.net and www.subside.co.uk/index.asp

    I ordered the "kick-off" jersey from subside and it's a piece of sh!t. I should've read the description which said "BUDGET" quality. But they do have replica ones which are better quality. Soccerplus has also and you can get lettering done.

    Well, you can check eBay but they're asking for ridiculous prices.

    When are they gonna come out with a new design for the Korea NT anyway? I really don't like the jersey. Sure I like it out of loyalty but honestly, I can do without a pink jersey.

    Haha i have an episode. I wore the jersey to school one day and I was trying to convince people that it was red but I failed and I went home and cried looking at my pink jersey, lol. I think KFA's contract with Nike is over soon so we may see a Korea Adidas jersey.

    yes i check ebay frequently, most of the time they're just selling the replica and those idiots from thailand/singapore always put in their description that it's authentic when it's not. there was only one time i saw a 2 layer jersey which got sold for like $103 US.

    Good, I can't stand the Nike jerseys in general. Plus I think Nike is an evil corporation. The only Nike jersey I liked were this year's US Men's. I like Adidas way more. Hopefully Adidas will outfit the Koreans with some nice jerseys for once.

    Essvee, it's alright dude. Wait, don't you live in Korea? If you do, what would anyone care? Korean guys over there wear tons of borderline homosexual colors.

    ...and hairbands and eye-shadow.

    But you gotta draw the line on the national jersey. It looks alright with the "denim" shorts, but I do hope they make improvements. A deeper red that cannot be mistaken for any other color would certainly be a start (although I think a nice dark blue would better suit the Korean skin tone -- besides, red is north Korea's favorite color!).

    I actually bought the jersey like the next day they announced the new jersey. And since i'm stuck on a military base in yongsan where living conditions are much better than some parts of the states, a lot more high tech, and where people have better taste, yes, i got dogged on quite a bit.

    I had no problem with that jersey offpost but all the white, black, latinos were on my SS. But I got the final laugh when everyone started wearing the so-called "be the reds" shirt (that makes you look like a bandwagoner) during my final weeeks of the semester.

    Anyway, I really hope KFA doesnt resign with Nike. But that doesnt mean they should sign with..lets say..Pro Specs or somethin.

    Is 'Cool-Motion' version the proper players replica? Because I got a NT jersey from Nike store and it is made out of raincoat material. I also got a NT training top (which cost more than the NT jersey) and it is made of much better material.

    Alright, here are my observations from the different kinds of Korea jerseys that are out there. The raincoat type you're talkin about is the "Kick-off" jesey which I ordered from subside. It cost like $30 USD or something like that. The "Cool-motion" one comes in two types: the authentic dual layer one which the players wear and the single "fans" version one. If you go see some pictures online, you can definitely see the dual layers. The outside layer is the pinkish one and underneath it, you can see the white under layer. The way I've been able to differentiate the "fans" version cool motion between the "kick off" version is that the "kick-off" version has a Nike tag on the back collar. You know, like those tags which tell you the size on the back of any t-shirt. The "fans" single version one seems to have a Nike tag screened onto the back, meaning that it's not an actual tag like the "kick-off" jersey but printed on.

    I've seen some closeups of the "fans" single version one and it seems to be like a polyester material unlike the "kick-off" jersey. I guess another way you can tell is to look at the line that meets those thinner lines of the front part of the jersey. If you look towards the bottom part of the jersey, there are two lines in the front on the left and on the right. It should be horizontal but on the "kick-off" jersey, it's goes in on an angle. The single version or the authentic have the lines as horizontal. If this post made no sense to you then I'm sorry I couldn't be any more clear since I'm a bit buzzed right now after a couple of drinks. Ok terrific!

    right.

    Class A is the one the players wear on the field and it has mesh inside.

    Class B is made out of the same material as Class A cept no mesh.

    Class C aka the raincoat, ricebag is completely useless as it feels dirty and traps heat.

    well said. I'm glad I got mine early.
    I saw at the Korean football merchandise boards that if you order now, the new stock will come in october. If you miss now, you won't be able to get it until next year.
