2014 Olympic Jerseys

551 posts in this topic

All these awful jerseys are making me not want to watch the Olympics at all. They look like the kind of generic things you'd find at a duty-free shop. I've yet to see one jersey with one redeeming aspect.

My girlfriend got me the black Canada jersey for my birthday. Fit is really different compared to previous years. More flattering and she described it as looking more like a shirt as opposed to a jersey.

Now Giroux just has to get his s hit together.

After looking at the jerseys a bit more, they are beginning to grow on me. I agree that most of these look more like long-sleeve shirts than jerseys.

Good:

Slovakia - Love the idea of having the anthem written out on the jersey. Very unique

Sweden - Best olympic jerseys by far. Can't wait to get a Lundqvist!

Russia - Awesome incorporation of the flag in a totally different way. The wings is Nike's best use of "fake" embroidery on shoulders.

Weird:

USA - Nike found a new way to incorporate the stars and stripes. I like the blue better though as it looks a lot cleaner.Not a fan of the crest. As a caveat I loved the USA '96 WCOH jersey

Canada - The black is a little too funky for Canada. Red and white are pretty clean but, a little boring.

Czechs Republic and Sweden - Looks like the flag was just printed onto the jersey. Both of these seem pretty plain.

Does anyone know if retail authentics will be sold? Or will Nike do the 3-tier system - authentics (numeric sizing w/fight-strip), semi-authentic (numeric sizing with no fight-strap), and replicas (alpha-sizing).

Nike hasn't done the 3 tier system from what I understand since 1998 . I don't think we will see authentics except team Canada, and maybe Russia . I can only wonder if they'll even have all Olympic teams available for purchase.

Very unfortunate, even if the jerseys are garbage.

Has anyone seen or heard anything about the Latvian jerseys yet? I wanted to get a Gudlevskis, but I dunno about shelling out $100 for a sublimated dealio from Lutch if I can find better quality.

They should be out soon enough, just wait. You can't get them personalized anyway with player names before the official rosters are announced at the end of December. If you don't feel like waiting, Pro Hockey Life's website has the old Nike jerseys on sale at the moment for $65. Buy that and get it personalized locally. It's better than getting the cheap sublimated stuff (especially from Luthch, who use the wrong shade of red).

That Swiss red jersey is horrible. So plain. Doesn't even look like a practice jersey. Nike is either too busy with their designs (Russia) or way too plain and boring ( Swiss, Canada). Can't find the happy medium.

The jerseys don't even have the swoosh. It's either a prototype or not the real deal.

It's the non-Nike replica being sold by the Swiss Hockey Federation. Interestingly enough, it costs about $30 more than the Nike's are going for, yet is sublimated, and therefore of considerably lesser quality (although I haven't seen a retail Nike version yet for the Swiss). Usually teams manufacture their own in order to offer cheaper alternatives.

So I just was in a 's Sporting Goods in New Jersey and they had both Navy and White USA jerseys. I know that they don't have any more Navy jerseys on the USA Hockey Website. If anyone needs me to pick you one up I'll see what I can do.

Leave Bobby Ryan at home and bring along clowns like Brown, Orpik, and the two Rags forwards that can't even play hockey in the small NHL rinks.

Does EPS sell loose kits or do I have to send my jersey to them and have them do it? I want to get a Stastny made up.

Also, anyone know who does Canada's?

EPS sells loose kits -- usually about $10 less than what they would normally charge

Central Crests did the ones for 2010. They do like to charge a premium but knowing your collection you probably use bills bigger than that as toilet paper.

For whatever reason it won't let me quote either of your posts. Thanks for the info about EPS and Central Crests.

How much is a premium and can anyone tell a major difference between the 2010 fonts and style compared to this year's?

How much is a premium...

As of last year Central Crests wanted around $110 for a Team Canada kit with stitching. They did have red Swift material for the nameplate.
