Sorry man but its not right. I bought a custom elite RW jersey back in December and I was PO'd when I got it because it didn't look right. I got 100% confirmation from the store manager at Just Sports in Northgate Mall as well. Here's what was up with mine, which from your pictures, is totally identical:
-"Fake" stitch print on the numbers
-Single stitched numbers
- cheap Nike logos on the arms (almost like they are glued on)
-the numbers feel like cheap plastic and the are advertised as tweed when they clearly are not.
- one thing that happened to mine was the 12th man logos around the collar started to break and peel (My $100 jersey hasn't done this) and the stitching started to come apart.
The only thing about this jersey that felt "Elite" was the jersey fabric. For 299, this is totally unacceptable! I called NFLShop and freaked on them. Needless to say, I sent my jersey back to them, they inspected it, and determined that their were mistakes made and they would refund me fully and send my jersey to manufacturing to use as an example of how not to make them. They obviously haven't done this
I really suggest doing the same thing. The NFL and Nike cant be selling crap and calling it "on field" apparel. Below is a blog that another fan wrote back around the time I got mine.http://www.reddit.com/r/nfl/comments/15a7oq/if_youve_purchased_an_elite_51_jersey_from/
BTW, after I got my refund, I bought a $100 RW jersey, and a brand new full size BBQ and smoker.....for the price of the "Elite" jersey
If you have any questions I will be glad to help out. I did a TON of research when this happened to me. Let me know
