    NHL tries too hard sometimes/often. The game has organic roots, a less contrived approach is better. And if they cared about jerseys impact on the environment they wouldn't make them in/support economically the countries that are among the biggest contributors to the problem (and that's NOT Canada or the USA).

    Is this the Blackhawks’ new collar redesign?

    I wonder if there will come a day when all our Edge 2.0s will be highly desirable, even if there are a lot out there. The Adidas template is highly flawed.

    By the looks of that list it may be a fix for the collars and also for the odd, stupid fishbone-fake lace up thing. Habs new jerseys suffer horribly from the collar issues as well - interesting to see that that aren't on the list (yet). Another issue I see with the template is the width of the yokes, which have increased significantly. It actually looks good on white jerseys (like the New Jersey Christmas Tree 3rd) but horrible say on the Caps red 3rd, where the white yokes make a classic, wonderful jersey look like an ice cream cone...
  4. I'm actually sympathetic, was simply missing the connection to the technical process of how the thread that gets woven in is pre-coloured, and then how that works so perfectly. I actually am disgusted at the NHL making any jerseys outside of North America. Hockey Related Revenue is at an all time high and could easily absorb making the replicas in Can/USA (and the lowest level replicas should be at thevCCM 550 level, IMHO). They are morally no better than the counterfeiters (and the marketing techniques to call them authentic is insulting - I hate the "customer won't notice" assumption). Really think the NHLPA should insist that all official jerseys be made in CAN/USA as part of the CBA negotiations.

    I have that in Edge 2.0 and have to agree. They are just gorgeous and classic!

    Lol, those BUF and NYR practice are a nicer concept than the ones they used in the game (at least from those two pics). Have a real old vibe!

    Hi Tom, My OV was indeed a #3, Jyrki Jokipakka who was on a PTO last year in training camp and was released. It was worn in one game, and was clean except for a significant crease in the front logo and material, which Keener fixed. It was $250 with LOA. Keener only charged $40 for the strip job, IIRC. I didn't see any Caps for $225, which I'd prefer, as I don't personally want wear or damage . The #78 I have is pretty much pristine, looks like GI - even though the LOA says game worn, and the game log says Lewington had ~19:00 for TOI, IIRC

    Got this back from Keener a few weeks back - MIC, sz 58, started out as #3. They do impeccable work - i became a Caps fan in the 80s so will cherish this forever! So lets make it OV Friday! Detail of Keener's craft!

    Is it just me, or do many/most/all of the new 3rds seem to have the bottom stripes and the bottom cut straight across, rather than the wavy curvy stripes/cut? Maybe an actual change to the template going forward? Maybe all the existing jerseys could move back to this more traditional set up? Have a look: https://www.icethetics.co/jerseywatch/

    Maybe this topic is pin-worthy?? What are best practices for insurance. Are there specialized carriers, or do people do it through their home coverage (with or without an extra rider)? Different practices for TI/Retail MIC or Game Worn? Differences in the market for Canadian and American collectors? I hope we all aren't just hoping for the best if something happens. Hopefully there are ways to protect ourselves so anyone who does suffer a loss doesn't get a nasty surprise when dealing with a claim. Thoughts?

    I'm guessing the margin on the overseas made stuff is so high they want everyone to buy those, as opposed to a more expensive but lower margin MIC version. Both greedy and stupid. They are missing that many will I lyrics want the MIC quality and that many of tjos folks will buy many copies, because we're into it. Yes the margin would be less, but they are going to miss out on the 'contribution' from those. Maybe they know that and will turn to that revenue stream when the volume on the offshore stuff drops. So, even within a cynical guess at their business model they may actually be hope. It might just take a while...
