  1. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    Looks like sublimated twill with perforations. It would make the jersey FRACTIONALLY lighter on its own.
  2. Added some Reebok Edge fight straps.
  3. Nameplates Needed

    If anyone needs I have: Black Airknit Black Edge Black Ultrafil PM for what you need and what size.

    As stated: at least in Vancouver... The team equipment manager buys direct from Adidas. They pay Adidas MSRP which was stated as $400 CAD per jersey. Anything they don't use is to be sold at the same MSRP ($400) to the public. Of course Adidas manufactures for much cheaper, but they are not selling them to anyone for less than MSRP. This information came from the team less than 72 hours ago, in person. No reason they would lie, but don't shoot the messenger.
  5. The Patch Thread 2.0

    Check the patch border, the Stanley cup detail and the facial expression. Original patches all had SOME variance. But you can still tell original from repro. The originals tended to have an ivory or off white background (between the border embroidery and patch itself) due to age. Modern repros look bright white.

    I was told that Adidas sells pro jerseys direct to the team equipment managers for the same price ($400) and the team is forced to apply the Adidas MSRP if they resell. I know there is margins for all the other products (hats, retail Authentic, shirts, etc) but it sounds like these are not intended to have a wholesale and retail margin since they don't actually offer at retail.

    Lol. With the way the CAD VS USD exchange is going you might be back to your original $800 For any Van fans, nothing to really be excited about. Virtually unchanged when you see it in person.

    No sizing confirmations. My belief is 54 and up based on historical sizing that the Canucks had on hand for team stock. Apparently Adidas has done a terrible job communicating with the team about the new jerseys and they are ordering limited stock because of high price. By comparison blank team stock was $329.99 CAD with Reebok. I was told that all ordering is done with Adidas USA meaning that prices are in US and converted to CAD which drives up cost and hence the $400 CAD MSRP. Definitely sounds like the program isn't being met with a positive reception at least in Vancouver.

    Some news for all. Spoke with my Canucks rep. He advised that the team will be offering the Retail Authentic for $200 Canadian and the Pro On Ice Authentic for $400 Canadian. Apparently Adidas has set the pricing "league wide" which means that other teams MAY offer the made in Canada jersey for retail sale. It's up to each team to order and resell.

  12. Ironing over vinyl or heat transfer is tricky and can be a problem. Heat can either peel or crack or melt those without a proper transfer sheet between them and the iron. I have used it with limited success myself and in most cases nothing happened to ruin or improve results.

    I agree about the square lines. They look like they are cut the same way a tailor makes a suit. Will be a different on ice look for sure. Also those mannequins appear to have metal plates so it might make it look boxier than a person wearing one.
