  1. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    By now, we've all seen the photos, however, I'm here in Vegas and got right up to the jersey. Only problem, my phone died. In short, the body and sleeves are all a new air-knit material. There's a pattern to it, however, no holes like the air-knit used on the previous EDGE 2.0. I think the durability on these panels is going to be just fine. On the shoulders, I don't even know how to describe the material. It is embossed, doubleknit type but softer, felt like it was padded or the was some type of lamination on the backside. I honestly couldn't tell. The mesh used is going to be fine for what they're trying to accomplish via venting. Wouldn't surprise me if adidas sublimates the mesh panels, especially on the grey. Cost wise, here's what Vegas is doing and I've been told they're "authentic, Made in Canada". Not sure who is doing the "custom retail" decoration... What is the price of the official jersey? Prices are $200 for a non-customized jersey and $265 for a customized jersey (before tax).

    Hawks jerseys... https://twitter.com/BrianSandalow/status/878380142212431872/photo/1 You can see on the red how details SHOULD matter, but certainly don't. The shoulder panel should be cut square so that dimples don't disappear into the stitching areas.

    Going by the pics, that's the way it is done.

    Could be right, however, this is more noticeable on the NJD jersey where the inner part of the crest is actually cut top to bottom, thus the embossed pattern in the material is running against the jersey panel's embossed pattern.

    Upon taking a closer look you'll see that the crest on the LA jersey is very interesting. You have the outer border white that is twill with the silver glitter merrow stitch, but then the inter part of the crest is the jersey panel itself. You can also see how the "crown" sits ON TOP of the fabric and appears to be sewn down... ANA ARI BOS BUF CAL CAR COL = can really see how the embroidery sits ON TOP of the jersey fabric and the maroon inner part of the crest. CMB = you can see how they used the jersey material with the red on the inner part of the crest, however, most the crest is twill DAL DET = the crest is of the same material as the front jersey panel but sits on top of the panel, stitched down. EDM = twill white circle with OILERS embroidery in navy. No idea about the oil drop FLA = all twill with embroidery MIN NSH NJD NYI NYR OTT PHI SJ = not sure if it's the flash, but the teal looks lighter than previous... STL TB VEG = the detail stitching on the black is tremendous WSH WPG

    QFT! It's been my thought all along. Remember, they did this before with little to no input from the players. Wouldn't be shocked for that to be the case again...

    Front. Reebok made those available to customizers at the cost of $45/yard.
  12. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    Assuming we're talking about 1.0 material, that was because of what CCM/Reebok was charging for it. I found THE EXACT FABRIC for 80% less.
  13. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    I've had several NHL teams tell me that when they saw their reveal back in December, the practice jerseys had a fully sublimated front panel. One of the problems with 1.0 were the massive amounts of jersey repairs being made due to poor abrasion. Air-knit "solved" that, but, I see this move to be similar to what adidas does for their soccer teams by offering one product for field/on-ice play and retail sell. This is called making the jersey CHEAPER! Think about it..."we cut the (cheap) jersey fabric to use in the logo in place of the (more expensive) twill to provide a better look. On top of that, this makes the jersey lighter in weight and allows the players to perform better." Let's call it what it truly is; creating larger margins. Have a friend who used to work at adidas who told me that they refined the patterns to make the "on-ice" product less baggy and better fitting. When they went to 2.0, they altered the patterns.

    For those two teams, yes, all others, no. I think every team is able to get a jersey from their customizer, even on weekends. Speaking for myself, I became a "known shipper" with TSA and a few airlines, specifically to avoid problems in getting teams product on a Saturday or Sunday. Worst case, it goes on an airplane and a courier picks it up and takes it the rest of the way.

    I'm sure these two teams EQMs carry the specific letters they need for whatever order they go in. Probably a royal pain in the a**, however, ya gotta do whatcha gotta do...

    My bad, essay.
  17. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    To my knowledge, all NHL teams will continue to use their customizers that they've used in the past. Whether or not the customizer is the one to create the lettering kits is a different story. Vegas lettering will be purchased from adidas for EPS to customize; LAK will continue with Bobcat from top to bottom.

    Even though AIS was the company where the customization was done, Bob (Bobcat) was the one doing it. He is going to be the best to ask.

    Adidas has a facility in Indiana that is identical in nature to the Quebec facility. They can knit any polyester fabric, cut, sew, sublimate, laser anything that the Quebec facility could do.
  22. All Star game in 27 days...when do we see how ugly the jerseys are??

    adidas has shown each team their jerseys with THEIR numbering on them. Apparently, the same thing we saw on the basketball side (i.e. numbers with laser etching, "jersey material" numbers, etc.) is coming to the NHL sooner than you think. That also means that they will more than likely do sublimated numbers when possible as well. I can guarantee you that ONE team WILL have something "different" in their overall look, including their letters and numbers, which the NHL pushed this team to do. I don't believe that adidas is doing the physical sewing of the letters and numbers, however, the product itself WILL be supplied by adidas. As far as the practice jerseys are concerned, the entire FRONT PANEL of the jersey will be sublimated. The only stitched on logos you will see will be any sponsor patches that the team may have. I know of one team that flat out rejected the adidas letters and numbers.

    If you don't like the numbers on the AS jersey, get ready for what's coming from adidas down the road!
  24. NHL Team Customizers

    They are small mom and pop businesses more often than not, that work hard to get contracts with individual teams and keep them. NONE have a league deal, in ANY league. If it were up to the NHL, adidas would be lettering and numbering EVERY GAME JERSEY from EVERY TEAM! #facts
