What's up,
Just wanted to know if all these Adidas Philippines jackts that are coming from there are authentic or not?  Here's an example.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...ategory=137084&_trkparms=algo=LVI&its=I&otn=1
From what I was told, the Philippine government stopped Adidas from producing them a long time ago because only their athletes were allowed to wear their flag (or some reason similar to that).  Can anbody provide any info?

Yeah.. those were the first Philippine flag inspired jackets by Adidas. It's pretty hard to tell if it's legit or not unless you check it in person. Anyway the new Philippines jackets by Adidas are already released and can be found everywhere. They look like this.



May not be as good as the first one but still..

If the jacket is not in an adidas plastic, most probably its fake, you can also check the size on the neck label, if it occupies almost the whole square, that's fake, the legit one only occupies more or less 1/3 of the square in thinner font too, for the tag, there's a brown label inside the blue label, the blue label do exist with the fakes too.. hope this lil tips helps

nope, sorry bro, we weren't distributor of Adidas yet at that time
I remembering I both mine at Adidas G4, and another one at Adidas TriNoma, the sales man even kept it under the cashier's table, kept it for 2 years before selling it last year

Thanks for the tips guys.  Hold up though, isn't this the same jacket that dropped a few years back?  Did they re-release the same jacket, and are these selling in the US right now?

Actually the wrong spelling of "Philippines" on the tag was also the same as the second release of the Adidas Philippine Track Top here, 2 years ago i believe, the jacket I've bought from Adidas TriNoma has the same spelling.

about 2 years ago i attempted to purchase this jacket off of ebay. the first one i bought was authentic but ended up being too big and the seller had none left in my size. then i bought one from another seller with excellent feedback only to end up with a fake. fortunately i was able to get a refund. i gave up looking after that.
here are the comparison pics from back then:
(authentic is on the left side)












i finally picked up an authentic one in my size this evening. mission accomplished.
thank you both for the heads up.

there's actually some other fake flag jackets that are sold, with the brown tag like the original one, except its lacking some other labels, and the neck label's sizing is bigger than the authentic one, be careful to those who are buying online especially eBay

Yes...it is the same jacket from the Fall of 2007...

The Buyer at Champs ( 
) is a pretty smart dude...obviously...he saw the opportunity and demanded that adidas bring this style back...after years of fighting with adidas over the style...it is back!

Not to BS anyone into running out and getting it...but, they are BLOWING out of most stores...many stores sold out the first weekend it was back on the market...

Best thing...it is now EXCLUSIVE to Champs and has delivered recently in both US and Canadian Champs Sports stores...

I remember seeing the OG Adidas PI jacket at Champs Westfield SF in '07 months after I bought mine from District. I posted the info on NT and every piece sold within the day.

Even with the fakes outnumbering the originals, it's good to see the 1st design make a comeback. I actually know more non-Filipinos who rock the said jacket.
