What is a Swingman Jersey?

A “Swingman” jersey is a replica NBA fan jersey. A replica jersey is a jersey that has less premium finishes than the authentic jerseys (for example, the graphics are heat-sealed instead of stitched).

These lower production costs allow the jersey to be offered to fans at a lower price point than the authentic jerseys. This creates multiple price tiers for fans to choose from when buying a jersey.

Nike Swingman Jersey Fit

The Nike Swingman jersey has an athletic, slim fit. I personally did not size up, but if you prefer a baggy fit, you may need to. Here I am wearing a size medium (6’3″ 200):


The size medium had enough length for me at 6’3″. Here is a look at my size medium Nike Swingman jersey compared to a size medium Hanes undershirt straight out of the package:


As you can see, it runs maybe just a touch slimmer than a standard undershirt. Again, if you prefer a baggy fit, you may need to consider sizing up.

The Swingman jerseys are very comfortable to wear, but just expect an athletic fit. As I said earlier, the size medium had enough length for me at 6’3″, but it is worth noting that the Nike Swingman jerseys do run shorter in length than the Nike Authentic jerseys.

Here is my size 44 Nike Authentic compared to my size medium Nike Swingman:


As you can see the, the Nike Authentic jersey is a couple inches longer than the Nike Swingman jersey. From a distance, they look quite similar, but overall the Nike Authentic jerseys will have many more premium finishes, like stitched graphics.

Even though the Nike Swingman jerseys don’t have stitched graphics, they still are a nice way to rep your favorite player and team at a more affordable price point than the Nike Authentic jeseys. Here is a closer look at my Swingman jersey:
