Dear JimmyJ,

Need your advice and see below link.
Do the shirt and tag real or fake?

Looks a little too crispy to me. Japan or Thai repro?

A couple of things stand out to me.

The Tag does look too crisp, most running man tags i’ve seen look soft even my deadstock running man tag.

The way the tag is stitched in looks nothing like any of my other running man tags. I’m not sure what the types of stitching are called though.

the tag on the front of the shirt, under the left arm, in the first photo I’ve only seen those on Blue Bar or later shirts.
