How do Edge sizes translate to current Nike sizes?

Also, is there a list out there of what sizes certain players wear? I'm trying to make my Nike NHL design project more authentic by putting the right number inside the collar (the template I have has a 56 by default) even though it's such a small detail, and since each team's jerseys depict their respective captains (or alternate captains in some cases) I need to know what sizes they wear. 

And that loops back to my first question since the design project depicts Nike jerseys.

How do the Adidas World Cup jersey sizes compare to Edge 2.0?

Basically the same.  (At least for me, I wear the same sizes in both.)

Same here. They're very close.

In the course of my own investigation, I've found some examples that translate to the Swift size minus 2 equals Edge size (Toews wears a Swift 60/Edge 58 and Kane wears a Swift 58/Edge 56) but some examples that don't follow that rule, such as Phil Kessel, who wears a Swift 60 and an Edge 56. It's too small of a sample size to make a judgment, though, so I'll keep looking.

 Now someone will say that Kessel ate too many donuts before the tournament.

Looking for a team issued 54/56 vs a team issued 58+...the picture a few pages back is missing

Are these sizes for the 58+ close? Pit to pit 30 in... Front neckline to bottom 29 in... Back Collar to bottom 34 in

58+'s are more like 28 pit to pit, 56's are about 26, and 54's about 25.  The lengths you listed are about what one of my 58+'s measure out to.

Appreciate the reply.

Gives me a better idea on size differences if I decide to buy.

Hi, all.  I have a few CCM 1990's authentics in size 48, which fits me nicely (in Edge 2.0 I wear 50 to 54).  I found another CCM 1990's authentic that I want to buy but it's a size 52.  Any thoughts on how significant the size difference might feel?  I'm 5'11" and 190 lbs.  Thanks!

I wouldn't think an older 52 would be too much jersey for you. Just depends on how you like them to fit. I'm about the same height and I like the sleeve length better on 52s.

Good point about the sleeves.  I usually like jerseys to be a bit on the fitted side, but can go bigger in size if it lies relatively flat on the body.  As a Maska this one might be a little rigid, although the collar looks to be in good shape, so that would help prevent sagging.

Hi,

I am 5'7 and 130lbs, and I'm looking to buy a Premier Jersey. I would like it to be more fitted, so I was thinking that the men's S would be too big but I've heard that the Youth L/XL sleeves are way too short. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Recommendation #1; don't buy a Premier, they fit like crap and are made from the worst material imaginable.

Hi, and welcome to the forums!  Most of us here strongly dislike the Premiers, as the quality is indeed quite deplorable, as mfitz so eloquently stated.  :)  However, since Reebok jerseys are generally on clearance now you might be able to grab one for next to nothing, so perhaps it still may be worth your while if you just want something to wear and aren't that picky about jersey details.

The youth L/XL sleeves are indeed pretty short, around 28" from the tip of the sleeve to the center of the jersey:

Youth L/XL

They are also quite narrow, around 21" across.

If you're looking for a Montreal jersey, if you don't mind the style from a few years ago (without the tie-down collar), what would probably be the best fit is the older (discontinued) authentic Edge 1.0 model, if you could find one, in a size 46.  It's form-fitting, with slender arms, and the sleeves would definitely not be short; in fact, they might be a bit on the long side.  Here's one, but the price is rather high:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Reebok-1-0-EDGE-7187-Montreal-Canadiens-HOME-Red-Jersey-46-/330604750912?hash=item4cf9942840:g:XUkAAMXQuTNTNHy2

Another option would be the Indonesian-made Edge 7231 authentic model, also in size 46- you can get these real cheap now, here is one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CENTER-ICE-AUTHENTIC-MENS-REEBOK-MONTREAL-CANADIENS-HOCKEY-JERSEY-MULTIPLE-SIZES-/142386359233?var=&epid=1802516574&hash=item2126e36bc1:m:mny3uA7ZcSOtLpa2lIFJHcA

The quality is not as good as the on-ice player jerseys, but it's way better than a Premier, and at that price can't be much more than what you'd pay for a Premier.  This model is not as fitted as the Edge 1.0, but I wouldn't think it would fit any worse than a small Premier.

The best quality you can get is the on-ice Edge 2.0 (7287), but these will be the most expensive option, and the arms are pretty baggy, even in the size 46, which is the smallest they come in.  Anyway, hope all this helps a little.

You are quite welcome.  If you like, feel free to share more information on what jersey models you're looking for, your level of particularness about quality and authenticity, desired price range, etc., and perhaps we might be able to help you find more options.

I think I'm going to look for a Montreal Home jersey, a Reebok Edge 7231, size 46. However I live in France, any ideas of where I could find one that delivers to Europe?

OK, well being in France does complicate things a bit, unfortunately.  That will add a considerable amount to your cost for the jersey.  So far the best price I've seen for the Indo jersey is the one in that link I posted.  Too bad the seller "ships worldwide" but excludes Europe, Asia, Africa, Central and South America, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.  Where does that actually leave?  Lol.

One thing people here do sometimes is have the seller ship to a local forum member, who can then ship the item to Europe for you.  Of course, with you being new here, you don't know anyone, so it's understandable how difficult it would be for you to trust someone you don't know with your item and the shipping cost. But people (including myself) have done that successfully, so it's at least a possibility.

Or, you could contact the seller and ask if he/she can make an exception for you and send the package directly to France.
