  1. NHL 2017-18

    I got a Fanatics brand Red Wings sweater for Christmas and I have to say, I am a HUGE fan of it! After checking out the new Adidas jerseys in-store I decided that the extra money for the logo just didn't make sense to me so when asked what I wanted for Christmas, I pointed my family in the direction of the Fanatics brand sweater. They're basically the Reebok Premier jerseys I've been buying for the last few years, they've just sewn in a fight strap. What I really like about the Fanatics jersey is the fact that the crests and numbers are a much softer material, it feels really nice to the touch and when I have the jersey on. The fabric is a lot softer than the Adidas jerseys and previous Reebok's, which has been a complaint I've had for a while, why were the Reebok jerseys so much coarser than the old CCM jerseys? I just bought an AHL CCM jersey a few weeks ago while at a game and was amazing that the fabric was different than the Reebok jerseys, it felt much smoother and softer. The Fanatics jersey has a different cut that is really comfortable, I don't feel like the jersey is going to get in the way or end up somewhere I don't want it. Tighter tailoring is nice and while initially I thought the collars were goofy looking, now that I've worn mine a round I'm a big fan of it! The collar is a thicker material than the rest of the jersey and falls flat nicely, I think it's going to be a really nice sweater to wear over a hoodie in a few weeks when I venture to Chicago the Wings vs. Hawks game! I'm really interested in seeing how the jersey holds up over time, I tend to wear my jerseys A LOT, so this one is going to get some wear early in its life. Has anyone else bought/been gifted a Fanatics jersey? What are your thoughts on them and have yours worn well?
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    Western Michigan looks horrid, I want to rip my eye-balls out, but the one thing that drives me nuts about their uniforms for the last three years is their inability to wear the bronco logo correctly. They also seem to have invert the logo and it doesn't look right... EVER!
  3. Thrift Store Gems 2015

    Damn they got any more? They had two when I was there.
  4. Thrift Store Gems 2015

    I nabbed a green Nike Oregon replica jersey. Regular $120 got it for $35 at Ross in Danville, Illinois.
  5. Which could be a reason we're seeing schools shift from NAIA to NCAA Division III. It seems every year teams are jumping "up" to D3 (I say it's a lateral move) or just dropping Football. As for the uniforms I actually really really like their splits jerseys, don't care for the chrome and I LOVE the pink helmets. The "satin look" finish pink is really nice, wish more teams would wear pink as a designated team color.
  6. UNLV new football uniforms

    I don't see this ending well. Has a HS head coach ever made a successful transition into D1 in the last half century? My word, I thought this was a joke until I looked it up. Anyway, I really like both helmets. Hate the uniforms, especially the joke of an attempt on the white pants. Looks cheap. That would be a really really really bad joke... and I never joke when it comes to uniforms. This is a serious forum.
  7. UNLV new football uniforms

    UNLV's new head coach is from Bishop Gorman High School there in Vegas and he's a fan of various different uniform combinations. They had at least three helmets last season and I couldn't even tell you how many jersey/pant combos.

    If you're still doing these I'd love one "OchentaYOcho88" or "OYO88" in orange, blue and white.
  9. Seattle Sockeyes NHL Concept

    I love #2. Vancouver Grizzlies colors were always some of the best in the NBA. But, the best is #5.
  10. Hardest City for Fictional Concept Leagues

    For Salt Lake City, I have used bee names (since Utah is the Beehive State) so, Swarm, Killerbees blah blah blah... once for a football team I used Salt Lake City Valley Cats and I know someone on this very board did an awesome hockey concept with the name Salt Lake City Scorpions.
  11. Baseball pants: which is better?

    Nah. I always wear the UA base layer, but usually short sleeves. We start our league in late April, which in Minnesota means it might be damned chilly. (We once played while it was snowing, and we've had our opening weekend snowed out.) This reminds me that I need new cleats. I'm pondering custom, which is of course totally unnecessary. Are these over the top? Yes they're over the top but, it's softball! Everything should be over the top!
  12. Baseball pants: which is better?

    Give me a good pair of knickers any day. I wear my modern baseball pants like this when I play Softball. I get some comments like "You look goofy as hell" and "I love the old school pants, man!". But, it's comfortable for me and I enjoy the way it looks. Everyone else in their pajama pants can enjoy tripping as they round third.
  13. HELP! Helmet decal suggestions

    I have a all gloss black football helmet that I wore while playing semi-pro football and now that I'm no longer playing I want to get decals for it so I can add it to my collection but, I'm having major issues coming up with what I want to do with it. I turn to my friends here at CCSLC to give me suggestions. Right now I'm thinking of throwing some UL-Lafayette black alternate big Flur-de-lis decals on it but, would like to hear some suggestions. Thanks, ~OYO

    Great snag on that Rangers jersey man! I'm always looking for those old Starter jerseys on eBay.
