    Hi @ all,

    the Victor shirts which you can buy in Germany have always thee sizes printed inside, for instance
    ASIA L, EU M, US M

    Now I have seen a shop in China which offers quite cheap shirts. The thing I am worried about is, that they use quite strange size charts, for instance

    http://de.aliexpress.com/item/VICTO...inton-Jerseys-badminton-shirt/1985649535.html

    And when you watch carefully the pictures you can see that only one size is printed in.

    Normally I wear Victor size EU M which means roughly a body height of 175 cm (Victor says so, even I'm 185 cm). So when I go after their size chart, I should order their XL or XXL which seems quite off.
    Isnt EU Size = Asia Size + 1 ?

    So are their shirts original or fake ones with strange sizes?

    Thanks!

    I think these shorts will also be fake.

    The golden rule when buying clothing from Asia is that Asia sizing is different. a player using size medium in Europe should order size large.

    Yes, fakes for sure.

    There are many legit online shops in Asia you can order from. But do not expect to get it (too) cheap.

    Since you're from Germany: Have a look at badminton-outlet.de :) They are nice, have some stuff from Asia and respond pretty fast. Probably the only one I know which is importing stuff from Asia frequently. *thumbs up*
