    I was in Japan recently and got hold of two of the shirts which the Koreans used during the Olympics. They were about 5500 yen a piece, compared to Yonex Olympic sleevless which were about 8000 yen.

    In any case, what I was suprised about was the packaging the shirts came in.

    The top cover has a magnet in it as well, so when you close it it snaps shuts automatically.

    Not much more expensive than your usual T-shirt though.

    These shirts are the most expensive victor shirts I have seen so far. But honestly they really look great. Better than the normal edition for the half of price.

    Compared to Yonex Olympic sleeveless shirts, these aren't just better looking but much cheaper. I was surprised when I heard the price as I thought it was cheap. These are my first Victor shirts and before these, I've only had Yonex and Yonex's are expensive!

    In Singapore the retail price of this T-shirt is S$79.90 (~ USD 66) before store discounts.

    Looks amazing. I'm not really a brand junkie, but I'll happily make an exception for Victor. The Korean team is always dressed incredibly sharp! I expect these shirts to be quite expensive (just like the Yonex Japan team shirts). I bought this kind of model (black/dark blue though) on Ebay for less than €26,- and I'm afraid it's a fake one :( I'm not quite sure, but you know what they say when it's too good to be true... (fake or not, it's fortunately a nice and comfortable shirt. I bought it from vendor 'Badmintoncentral')

    badmintoncentral? Is there really a vendor with the name of this forum?
    26€ -> definitively fake; As I've mentioned these shirts on taobao have a price tag around the 50$. A ebay-Reseller with shipping from Asia (China / HK) to Netherlands can't go cheaper.
    It is very possible to get nice Victor shirts for ~ 40$ incl. shipping, but surely not this one which the topic opener has shown here.

    Lol. This really ugly. An ebay-user who's selling fakes and is called exactly like this very well known and good badminton forum ;-/

    Ah damn... It's next to impossible to get these kind of shirts in The Netherlands. There are some Victor vendors, but they only sell the boring/plain poloshirts from a couple of seasons back (if there's a webshop which sells the genuine products and is shipping it internationally: let me know please!). If only plane tickets weren't that expensive ;)
