Alright here is my problem....

I'm in the market for a new Chiefs jersey, but it seems like all there is on EBAY is authentic jersey's. The problem is this. I'm 6'3 and about 170, and the smallest authentic they have is size 48. Now I have a couple of authentic 48's when I was bigger, and they're like wearing a blanket now. I don't like to tuck jersey's in either.

What's the way to go??? Maybe there are different 48's out there that fit differently? The only thing that fits decently is a replica medium.

I don't think I have ever seen an authentic smaller than a 48.

Try the 'replithentic'

I'm trying to figure out how you wear a 48.....

I'm 5-10 and wear a 50.

It hangs about 5-6 inches below my waistline.

And barring a Frazod-like miracle, you're not getting an authentic on Ebay.

If you want a decent to good fake, then E-bay is the place.

And a replica Medium (should) equal an authentic 48.

That's the way I go. I have a Priest and a DT. $100 at a retail store, so you might be able to get it for cheaper of the Intrawebs.

The 48 I have hangs down to my knees when it is un-tucked. Like I said earlier, maybe there are different sizes of 48's depending upon the manufacturer?

I can promise you a new Reebok manufactured size 48 jersey wouldn't come anywhere near your knees...maybe not even to your waistline.

I have a DT authentic made by Wilson. Size 52 and it is 2 inches shorter than my LJ authentic size 50 made by Reebok.

Don't know if you're in the KC area, but you could always head over to Ace Sports and Tickets in the Oak Park Mall off of Quivira and try one on.

At 6-3, I'd bet you'd need at least a size 50.

Me thinks the size is wrong on the jerseys.. No way in hell a 48 hangs to your knees at 6'3".. Now the real question is why are you so ****ing skinny at 170.. Do you run marathons??

I order 48 and I am short (5'8") and not too fat. Unless I want a sig. Then I pay for true authentic.

Ask them if it is a true authentic or a true brand listed.

I get most of mine from E-Bay and understand it might not be a real authentic but everyone compliments me on not getting a replica everywhere I go. For the price, I am happy.

Most jerseys are from Korea (I spent 2 years in Korea and know this for a fact) on E-Bay and they run smaller.

I have a 48, smallest. Nice but small for a jersey. I love the 52 jersey the best.

I also own sizes 52, 54, 58. 48 I do not or can not tuck in.

Good luck.
