Don’t buy your RGIII Adidas shirts from the Redskins

Want one of those snazzy RGIII Adidas t-shirts? I mean, they do look pretty cool. Great gift for kids. Or maybe a Father’s Day present. Stylish design. And they even come in sort-of Redskins colors.

If you want one, though, I’d recommend getting one straight from Adidas, rather than from the Skins.

See, this “Light You Up” shirt, for example, costs $22 on Adidas’s Web site, which isn’t a horrible price.

But it costs $30 on the Redskins’ Web site, which is a lot more.

Then there’s shipping. Adidas wants $5.

And the Skins would like $13.08.

So what appears to be the exact same shirt will run you $27 from Adidas, and $43.08 from the Redskins.

And it’s not just that shirt. Same thing for “No Pressure No Diamonds.” Here’s from Adidas.

And here’s one from the Redskins.

(Thanks to Reader Matt for bringing this to my attention.)
