    It's a double edge sword with the woven patches. They actually cost more to develop and produce better results in clarity for fine detail like typography but they don't have the weight and perceived value that a twill & embroidered patch does.

    Can anyone confirm or clarify that the shoulder patches of the Adidas retail are made of different material then the Reebok Edge authentics? Is this one of the new weight reducing tactics? Yes and No depending on the team. The Adidas authentics use the same exact patch found on the MIC per team. So if the team uses a woven patch like Vegas (the new lighter weight patches) they get that. if the team uses a traditional twill & embroidered patch like the Stars or Hawks, they get that. Same goes for chest logos, same exact patch. Teams who carried forward the same patch execution from the Reebok days will be the same as Edge MIC and Indos. Second part of the question is, does the shoulder patch material differ from retail and Canadian made adidas? Is this just something on some retail jerseys. Same cresting and patches are used on MIC and retail. See above. If anyone remembers my question about the Ottawa patches, I got my hands on the Canes third and the patches are made of the same thin flexible fabric like material as the Ottawa Indo adidas. They are not the same patches as Canadian made Reebok’s but neither are they the same as the Reebok Premiers. Your examples are two teams who opted to go the go with the lighter weight woven patches. Reebok Premiers were all screenprinted twill.

    Nothing has changed. Still the same front and back, still curved.

    Why are you hung up on chain stitching??? I never once mentioned it. My point all along is that this comment " I'm afraid it's Adidas so they'll go the jersey material route like they have done with every other team because it's 'lighter' or whatever crap excuse they want to give"..... was short sighted since Adidas had already shown in the 2018 Winter Classic that they would continue to use the appropriate materials in the heritage games / and or when appropriate for other jerseys. Whether it's felt, chenille, chain stitch or whatever.

    I'm referring to the 2018 Adidas Winter Classic jerseys and they used heritage materials for the Sabres and Rangers. There's no reason to think they would deviate from that, especially since the jerseys are from the 20-30's. The OP below insinuated they would treat them like they do the home & away jerseys, which they clearly haven't for the outdoor games. "I'm afraid it's Adidas so they'll go the jersey material route like they have done with every other team because it's 'lighter' or whatever crap excuse they want to give"

    The 2018 WC jerseys had felt crests and chain stitching, so they'll probably keep treat these the same way since it is heritage jerseys

    Not sure what rights CCM retained or have acquired since the sale.

    Last summer just at the time of the brand switch. The parent company of SP (3B) bought them. Even so, the CCM jersey's and design was always handled by CCM, not RBK or Adi. Adidas MIC are still made in the Maska/CCM factory in St. Hy Que and will continue to be.

    Could it be they're using the summer league to see how players like these? Nope. Or maybe it's what the AHL will be using (CCM branded of course)? Nope. Two different companies. Or maybe NHL players spoke and kept it under wraps better than they did when Reebok 1.0s came into the league, and airknit is coming back to the NHL? Nope.

    Woven patches/labels use a finer gauge thread knit tighter together to achieve better clarity in detail. This clarity and detail is very evident when you see side by sides of teams like Columbus or the text on the the Lightning shoulder patches, Aside from most soccer badges using these, you've probably seen them on clothing as interior labels or jocktags on older NFL and MLB jerseys. the old Rawling label on jerseys and gloves or the Pro-Line NFL jocktag, The older Nike "designed to the exact specifications" jocktag was a woven.

    They are woven patches, sewn on.

    The game jerseys will have one-layer sublimated numbers, so the Authentics are accurate.
