  1. Fanatics’ Raphael Peck Talks League Deals

    I guess the Nike NFL jerseys look cool and trendy but they fit awkwardly in the armpit area. I can't raise my arms without the bottom hem coming up above my belly button. Same fit as the 2014 Nike Olympic hockey jerseys. Hated it.

    No problem, brother
  3. It arrived today v. 8.0

    I bought it on eBay a few years ago thinking it was royal blue but it turned out to be Air Force blue. Didn't have a use for it at the time but luckily I held onto it. There's currently a lot of 8 nameplates for auction on eBay. Appears to be exactly what I used.

    Sorry for the delay
  5. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Thanks! I couldn't find a stretch mesh nameplate so I used air knit. It was a 2 week turnaround time. It usually only takes about 1 week but Liebe is swamped with football jerseys at the moment. You're correct, the blue "layer" is actually embroidered. I'll take a close-up picture of it this evening. I agree, it's a great look. Was hoping they would adopt it full time for the upcoming season.

  9. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Yeah I preordered what they described as Adidas "authentic." I made sure it wasn't the Fanatics replica haha
  10. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    I decided to bite the bullet and preorder one so we'll see what shows up come mid-September. My gut says it will be made in Indonesia.
  11. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Both. The jerseys were displayed on mannequins in the middle of the store. They are also taking preorders for Adidas "authentics" that are expected to arrive in mid-September. Not sure about country of manufacture but when I asked the salesclerk if they were the same as what was on the mannequine, he said "yes."
  12. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    So I stopped by the Blues team store today and to my surprise they had the new Adidas jerseys on display. These were made in Canada. Unfortunately I couldn't try one on but, after a brief inspection, the construction of the jersey seem similar to the EDGE. The only thing that seemed weird to me was the shoulders - not just the material but the assembly itself. I'm not a clothing designer but it's like there's an extra panel of material on the shoulder yoke for some reason? Looking at release photos of other teams, this seems to be a standard part of the ADIZERO template. When the NHL released photos and descriptions of the ADIZERO jerseys, I was scared the new material would be snag prone like EDGE 1.0s. After seeing and feeling it in person, the new material seems like it should hold up well to abuse. Junkyard's description of it in the original post was perfect. It basically feels like air-knit without holes. Personally, I'm indifferent about the new collar design but not a fan of the new NHL shield. It's a bit too flashy in my opinion. Only the home blue jersey was customized. What I found interesting was it had sublimated numbers with perforated holes just like the World Cup jerseys. I had a brief conversation with the salesclerk and was told this type of customization is something Adidas is trying to market to teams so this was done as a prototype. Apparently the Blues aren't the biggest fans of it. I'm not sure if they will continue to use Liebe but it will be interesting to see how the gamers are customized when the upcoming season begins.

    The collar on that Hawks jersey looks...awkward. Reminds me of the Nike NFL fly wire collars.

    Happy to see Colorado ditch the piping and go back to the mountains.

    So has Adidas gone back to the flat bottom hem? No more dress shirt look? Edit: Just saw the back of the new Blues jersey. Guess they're going with white numbers now.
