  1. No they’re air knit. Nice jerseys to play in (I have 3). Much nicer than the Indo crap material
  2. Why not use one of these? https://revupsports.com/adidas-3-stripe-practice-jersey-men-s-hockey?CAWELAID=120056460000001855&CATARGETID=120056460000081699&CADevice=c&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIuNnJ5KO06QIVi4bACh3zUwMjEAQYASABEgIaEfD_BwE They run large so a size 50 is more like a 52
  3. As a kid my gear reeked so I'm well familiar with the 'hockey smell'. Of course, I don't recall ever airing it out after playing so it'd just sit in my bag for a day or two until I used it again. I'm also pretty sure I would replace stuff every year because it would either wear out or I'd grow out of it. As an adult, I am seemingly anal about airing my gear out after every game, spraying it down, washing it 2-3x per year, washing base layers/socks/jerseys after every game. My gear smells like a f-in lavender field (thanks detergent). It blows me away anytime I'm playing next to somebody whose gear reeks so bad it's hard to breathe. How do you not wash your stuff or air it out!? Even you gotta be smelling this, right?!
  4. Didn't see you mention the color, but good to know. thanks!
  5. Thank you. Yeah, name is slightly off, but not terrible. I'll reach out and see about the name plate material. Thank you! Thanks. That's what I was eyeing. If EPS doesn't have the correct material anymore, I'll go this route. You don't have any left, do you?
  6. Updating this crazy situation. I received a two decade old gamer that reeked of mothballs. The smell was so intense any closet I would put it in would then smell. As mentioned last month, I washed it 4 times with oxy, soaked it in vinegar, let it out in the sun, used activated charcoal, and while most of the smell got out of the jersey, the crest still stunk. If it weren't a puffy crest, but a normal one, I'm sure this wouldn't have been an issue, but whatever puffy crests are stuffed with to make them puffy was clearly holding onto the stench. Last week someone on one of the FB groups inquired about not being able to get smell out of one of their jerseys after using the normal methods. First someone recommended the freezer, which he and I both did for about 5 days. Didn't really help. Then someone recommended kitty litter of all things! I was skeptical, but at this point I figured what is there to lose? Picked some up, covered the crest with this stuff, put the jersey in a bag, and let it sit for a day. Then I washed it with normal detergent and the smell is almost entirely gone! So the secret to getting mothball/mold smell out of jerseys quickly? Turns out it's the same stuff that removes cat p!ss. https://www.target.com/p/arm-38-hammer-double-duty-cat-litter-deodorizer-advanced-odor-control-30oz/-/A-13969436?ref=tgt_adv_XS000000&AFID=google&fndsrc=tmnv&DFA=71700000062683854&CPNG=PLA_DVM%2B0060H00000pE1wlQAC-CHD-A%26H+Litter-Google+Search-2020-Flight&adgroup=PLA_A%26H+Litter&LID=700000001393753pgs&network=g&device=c&location=1016367&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI_uK5-qGx6QIVkY3ICh221Q3_EAQYAyABEgIO5vD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
  7. Black. Long enough for Roenick
  8. Does anyone know how accurately EPS can do 90’s era Kachina jerseys? second question is I’m guessing they don’t have Starter nameplate material, so does anyone have a strip? Or does anyone know if youth starter replicas are the same material?
  9. There are a few players that wear 52 across the league. Believe Claude Giroux is one of them, but I agree, that has to be a tight fit. I'm the same size as him and it's like squeezing a sausage into a casing with a 52 and pads. 54 is perfect w/ pads on for me.
  10. Well except the size 52 thing (or 54 for that matter), but yeah, I get what you're saying
  11. Almost picked up a pair of 52's in the morning when it was first announced, but after shipping and taxes I couldn't justify them even if it was a deal. Now if they had the gray alts....
  12. Yeah, believe he does wear 58. DeBrincat is the only player on the Hawks to wear a 54 at the moment. I don’t care as much about player accurate sizes, just what I can wear. If I could get a 50 or a 52, I would
  13. Scratch that. I got two (one Dach, one blank). The blank one does still have the sleeve tag and the Dach actually has the plastic piece where the tag would have been attached. Must have fallen off. Ah well, no biggie
  14. Also getting back on topic... TI Dach - size 54 Odd that the new collar has the tags on the collar whereas my last TI with the old collar had them on the sleeve
  15. I know CES gets ragged on a lot, but I used them once last year for a NE jersey (they do the team) and a Caps 90's Capitol building alt since they had the correct bronze material. Was satisfied with pricing, turnaround, and communication. No reason I wouldn't use them again if I needed to.
