Also, I've noticed that the Starter mesh jerseys made in El Salvador have the crest sewn VERY high, leaving even less room between the crest and the piping for letters and patches. So the owner has to pick between a few alternatives. Either sew the letter onto the piping (looks terrible), scoot it over closer to the collar (what they did on the listed jersey), or remove the crest and sew it back on a little lower. The last option is what I'm going to wind up doing with my Forsberg jersey. The crest is really high and it's bothering me more and more as I wear it.

Here's my Forsberg. I had someone take off the crest and move it down a few inches. Made a big difference and looks much, much better.
