    Because it's thruppence, and it's making me think it looks not quite right.

    dunno about it looking wrong, but yeah it is cheaper, doesn't make it a fake though, but you could be right ...
  • Well its Tate who are selling it as a Amazon Marketplace seller, I guess Amazon find it hard to monitor all of their marketplace sellers for counterfeit goods. Email them and let them know.

    My son has just bought a cycling kit on Amazon and was then informed that delivery would be 21 days or so, which suggests to me that it's coming from the Far East and thus fake goods (as the price suggested).

    Same stuff you get on Ebay, so yes it is fake. Only £28 on Ebay too.

    Definitely fake. You'd not get the shorts alone at that price - let alone the set.
