wallyhopp wallyhopp Here are some pics of my shorts. From my understanding these are sublimated graphics. I don’t have any swingman shorts, only a couple pair of M&N authentics so can’t so a direct comparison. Again, they are good quality shorts for nostalgia and casual wear. Won’t argue about the price tag. My dad (70) really likes the Georgetown pair I got him.

Thanks. Perfect comparison
Retro college cuts were around early 2010s
Their inventory never got as nice and crazy as 19nine.
Here’s my RCC 1990 UConn.

Retail was $75 back then; and it appears the inner material was a tad thicker on the old styling. The thin see through complaints may be valid. That sucks to hear them make a slight downgrade.
The outer sublimated mesh appears to be the same for this new era.
One detail 19nine gets right is that they are able to have custom waistbands. All of the rcc shorts were a solid color and didn’t feature ‘belt area‘ logos.
For a cheaper price than their prior company, I think they’re definitely worth a buy.
They also didn’t feature pockets. So they’ve Made great strides.

I got my UConn shorts in and they are cheeks!!!!!!!

how can you say these are on par with swingman shorts, swingman have separate fabrics/materials sowed together with patches/vinyls.

19nine shorts are thin one piece fabric with dye that creates an illusion Of different fabrics/patterns.

Got my 95 Uconn Shorts in this week. I'm satisfied. I keep seeing complaints about quality, but idk what some are expecting? No way did I see, nor was expecting, anything other than sublimated logos on the shorts. Not sure what some people are thinking with expectations, maybe zoom in on the browser to take a closer look. Buying these, I was going more for the feel and comfort, similar to the Nike replicas from years ago, and not materials so much. Now, that being said, if M&N decides to produce NCAA product for the schools I like (UNC, Uconn, Michigan), then I'll buy the M&N version. Even if M&N makes Uconn shorts, I'll buy those as well, KNOWING they will not be like this version, as evidenced by the Georgetown shorts.

19nine's quality is reminiscent of the Nike college replicas of the 90's. My Georgetown and UNC reps are made in that sublimation style print.

Wishing I would have got some pairs back when they used to sit and go on sale. I want a Georgia Tech pair, but just not sure about paying that full price. They'll be sold out within a day so if I hesitate, it won't matter.
