To go with my previous few posts on the previous page - here's what I mean. The one I recently bought is authentic from Mellon Arena, so it's better than the nhlshop.com's, but it's still not perfect. The top one is the one I just bought. The middle one is a game-issued Malkin jersey. The last is obviously a photo of Malkin from a 2008-2009 game.

And I think I've actually found the company that does the penguins customization. Shaaaaweet.

I don't know about you guys, but I absolutely notice a difference.

Not saying there's anything wrong with buying the fake ones, as I own a couple myself, but there's definitely a difference. My fake ones have fallen apart before pretty quickly too. They're a great buy for ~$40-$50.

I like to buy the sweaters blank, then have them sew the letters/numbers at my local shop here. I know most of the staff there, so they just make me pay for the actual lettering and then sew it on for me for free. Those are my favorites.

There's a shop in Illinois that does great work, so I'm trying to see how my Orpik jersey turns out from there. I just don't know if I'm getting this year's 2.0 or last year's 2.0. It's such a headache. :( I also know of the shop that does the lettering for the actual game worn blackhawks jersey, so i'm just trying to find the Pens one. Such. A. Headache.

ic, I guess if your top priority is getting a jersey as authentic as possible, then yeah, there's a lot of stuff you gotta dig through before you find the real thing. But for me, as long as the price is right and it's close enough, i've got no problem.

I actually remember FSN doing an intermission special on the shop in Pittsburgh that does all of the customization for the team. Don't remember who it was though

yeah, I'm not a fan of the fakes either. I'd rather pay more money to get the real deal that's durable. I'm just a stickler about the customization (as I've already made abundantly clear :lol)

And it's funny because that baby blue pens jersey is such a unique color..depending on what background is in the photo and flash characteristics, it can show as a pale baby blue or an extremely bright and dark baby blue (if that makes sense)...just makes it even harder trying to get the legit one :lol

:thumbsup For sure. I have no problem with them. I have a black Duncan Keith one, an alternate Kane, a white Toews and a green Kane. I want to get a knockoff Stamkos sweater.

Your real problem is you bought those gay powder blue jerseys.

And as far as the auth/fake argument goes, as long as it's close, I'll buy it. I'm only a snob with Phillies jerseys and a mild snob with hockey. NFL boots are so easy to pull off that it's absolutely stupid to buy a screenprinted jersey.

That being said, hockey jerseys are the best jerseys in the world.

Like I said before, I think the most frustrating thing is that you can't even go to the arena to find a genuine authentic jersey. They're some of the worst I've seen. I'm guessing they're banking on a lot of people not noticing/caring and buying em anyways while the jerseys themselves clearly cost a lot less to manufacture than the real ones.

I love Pittsburgh's black and gold (Steelers and Pirates included). The powder blue? Awful.

And don't mess with the orange and black. Those babies are beautiful!

Only when we talk abou the Orioles! And I don't mean the bright orange jerseys that they had those few times...those were hideous. Orange lettering and trim and whatnot is fine....but, gah, orange as primary jersey color is just .... :ugh

all of this is a friendly dig, tis all :)

Pretty sure this has been discussed before, but while we're on the subject, what's everybody's favorite NHL uniform?

Don't know exactly why, but I've always loved the 70's era Canucks. Like the color scheme and the logo is classic.

http://nhluniforms.com/Canucks/Canucks03.html

My favorite worst uniform has got to be the flying duck, LOL, just pure 90s awesomeness right there. I'd contemplate buying one just to relish in its ridiculousness.

:thumbsup definitely staged. Stu Bickel took the face off, and he's a d-man! Wanted to get one more tough guy up there. The Devils put out their fourth line, and NYR responded in kind. Nothing wrong with that, just sends a message

Obviously biased, but I think the Blackhawks sweaters are the best uniforms in sports.

Worst though...man there are a lot. Here are a few that come to mind:

These green ones...OH BOY - http://nhluniforms.com/Coyotes/Coyotes02.html

Their were several cartoon alternates in the 90s that are probably the worst hockey sweaters of all times.

I think the Hawks have the best look. Loved the Pens light blue alternate too.
