    I've checked around and just don't want to get scammed. Was wondering if anyone has purchased replicas from any sites and if so, which one would you recommend? Mods feel free to delete if this isn't appropriate. I'm just looking for a little guidance on this. Thanks.

    PhinMcCool, thank you so much bro, been really nervous about this. I just can't fathom spending 150+ on a jersey i'm going to wear around my house on Sundays cooking chili and making Beef Jerky. I work hard for my money lol. Hey....Hows the fit? Like size wise?

    I'd say fit is pretty normal. I bought two jerseys from two different sellers and both were pretty good and very accurate. In fact the last one I bought was a players replica, which was very accurate, down to the different material, long tailored fit and elasticated sleeves. Not really wearable as a casual t-shirt but that's my fault not the garment's fault or the seller's.

    I ordered the aqua Tua jersey from this site but haven't received it yet. It was shipped on 5/16. I have no idea how long it will take to get here, but all I care is that it gets here before the season. I never order anything from China I need soon. When I order from China I'll tend to forget about it and then get a surprise when the package arrives.

    I'm not a jersey guy (I don't think I look good in them), so I didn't want to spend much for something I probably wouldn't wear much. I watch most games at home and don't wear a jersey watching those games. I really only wear a jersey if I'm at a game or either hosting or going to a game viewing party. Most recent years that's between 0-1 times. If I go to a SB party then I'd wear the jersey so that might add a second wearing.

    I can't believe how popular Tua jerseys are. I work weekends, but one day I may be back in the sports bars on Sundays watching the game and I wouldn't be surprised if every Dolphin fan had on a Tua jersey.

    My daughter picked this shirt out from the Miami Dolphins Pro Shop (Fanatics Experience) for her birthday. She liked it, so I wasn't going to quibble and try and talk her into something I think she should have. I just ordered it but was a little surprised at the long turn around time. She won't get it until mid-July. My fault on that one. I think I missed the small print on the site. She's cool with waiting for it, though. :-)

    I've ordered about a dozen total jerseys from them over the past year and on average, it's 6 weeks total from order to delivery. The longest was my Tennessee RT jersey at 8.5 weeks that got stuck in customs, while the fastest was my brother's Gronk jersey at 12 days (which was ordered the same day, from the same seller as the RT jersey). We had one other get here super-fast but on average, it takes 5-6 weeks to most US addresses.

    Another way to better track your shipment- when it hits US customs from China, it usually sits there 3-5 days on average. Once the package leaves customs you lose tracking (since China was tracking it), but from there it's always less than a few days away.

    Also, the WORST jersey we've received so far had a few strings loose at the very bottom, which we cut with a scissors and all was fine. Each jersey has been washed at least once or twice and we haven't had any fraying or fading issues so far. I'm guessing that most of these are the same as the authentic NFL jerseys since they're made in China anyway....we're just getting knockoff tags (Nike/NFL) on them. They're 100% identical to the real thing though.

    I'll post all my jerseys sometime this week so you guys can see the quality- other than non-standard color variations though (which I sometimes prefer to be different), most wouldn't know the difference from an authentic one.

    I never was either until I ordered a JT jersey last year, liked the heck out of it, and realized it was cheaper than what I usually spend on Dolphins T-shirts. So I decided that I'm going to frame them and put them up in my game room where we have a pool table, video games, etc. Unfortunately though, the frames will be way more than the jerseys- so I've been searching for some cheap Plexiglas or something like that so I can make em myself. Once that's done, I'll eventually go on a buying spree to order a Singletary, a Barry Sanders, a Montana, etc. to get a wide variety of teams and colors...I'm super excited about that!

    For now though, I wear Dolphins jerseys as t shirts around town- why not at that price?

    My experience ordering knock-offs from these chinese websites has been this... you get what you pay for. I've got an authentic Tannehill jersey, and 3 or 4 from different knock-off websites. I'll just say this, it's not even close. The colors are off, the logo looks like crap, the materials aren't the same, they're not even on the same level. If you wore it to the stadium during gameday, you'd stick out like a sore thumb IMO. I had a Red Wings (NHL) jersey I ordered from one of these sites in Red. The red was deeper in color than then authentics. It looked terrible, so bad that I tossed it in the garbage at the arena. My Dolphins jersey's are no different. The aqua looks more green, than the authentic aqua jersey does. Just everything about them is sub-par.

    I don't understand why people buy jerseys. The guy will most probably not be on the team in a few years.

    Buy a nice sweatshirt or jacket.

    Some people like to wear then while they watch the game.

    Why does it matter what other people wear??

    Check Goodwill and garage sales. You can get high quality frames dirt cheap. Especially if they don't all have to match. Estate sales too.

    For me, jerseys are a must when I hit the sports bar. It makes it easy to see the others who I have something in common with, and those that I don't (Jets fans!). J-E-T-S, SUCK, SUCK, SUCK!

    Woot! Go Dolphins! :-)

    Thanks for the DH Gate link. Tua was the guy my son wanted for the QB pick. I got him the teal one. I ordered the white one. My garage is my man cave. 1/2 rack work out area and large screen with Bose surround sound. Roof is where the jerseys of players retired or moved on go. Current player jersey is hung right below the TV. Wish I could figure out how to post a picture but I only seem to be able to post pictures that are hosted somewhere else.

    Huh, I never thought of that- thanks! They definitely don't have to match and I'd be okay with building them myself, but the problem is the glass/plastic casing that would go over the front of them. I guess I don't technically have to have that...it just seems like they'd look a lot better with the covering.

    Does the DH Gate site have a throwback jersey for Tua design because if so I'll grab that? I tend to use my Jersey's for either game day or for when I go for runs and my Jarvis Landry rookie jersey has now definitely seen better days.

    I just checked DHGate for my Tua jersey status- I bought it on 5/10/20 and it shipped on 5/12/20. Their estimated delivery date is 8/10/20....meaning 90 total days. I know COVID has slowed overseas shipping but I had no idea it was that bad. I'll post though once I do receive it.

    As an update, the tracking on my jersey says it arrived in Chicago on May 30th. It still has to get to the west side of the country, but I figure at worst a week by regular mail?

    I dont think it's just Covid. The company I work for ships things via standard mail, ups and fedex and none have wait times like that for our deliveries right now.

    Yeah, if the package has cleared customs in the US then it's 3-4 days away max....meaning you should get it today or tomorrow?!? Good luck!

    Edit- I just realized that mine shipped 4 days before yours...and it's still in China. So you got a lucky roll on getting yours super fast during COVID- grats!

    Thanks. My estimated delivery date still says 8/14, but I imagine that was just based on the purchase date.

    You'll get yours soon. All I wanted was to get it for the start of the season anyways. Even though personally I'm hoping Fitz and the team plays so well that Tua only gets spot duty this year. I'm hoping Tua only starts when he is so ready and so good that Flores can't keep him out rather than out of need or b/c of pressure to play him due to losses or poor QB play.

    It could also be due to unrest in the shipping due to the current protests.

    So I got my jersey last night. I'm in the midst of a string of 12 hour shifts so I haven't examined it real closely, but on my initial once over I was impressed. The feel and weight of the material, the details and quality of the stitching all seem very good. Basically on par with jerseys I used to buy from the Miami Dolphin's shop for $100+. I will probably never be a jersey guy myself (it's just not my look), but I like having one for attending football parties or a game. This one fits the bill perfectly.

    My sister got me a knock off Tannehill jersey two years ago, and my experience with it mirrors yours, Raf. I can't see myself spending $150 on something that I can get for way way cheaper.
