A friend of mine managed to get his hands on 07 digital before it was common. Turns out he got the ones hastily made for a Major PLA parade. The Button holes where mismatched, and it fell apart.
The way to tell if the Type 07 uniform is to look for the PLA factory red proof markings. There is a whole article showing where to check to make sure the uniform is legit.
Or buy a brand someone else has tried and it hasn't ripped for them yet..
