Here’s a slightly odd one. first of all I managed to get these on the cheap because the auction described them as PUMA FIF shirt’s, meaning anyone who searches for “Ivory Coast football shirt” would not come across them.
On closer inspection there was something wrong with the shirts. It’s the new design, but with the old badge. Alarm bells started ringing that these may be fake, but the material and stitching was of a far superior quality to any fake I’ve ever come across.
Inside I noticed 4 pieces of evidence that these were infact prototype shirts. A quick google search told me that Liberty Garment Co were the Thai suppliers to very sports companies including PUMA.
