Is It Obvious We Like The Razorbacks Around Here?

Well the holiday season is winding down and as with the last few holiday seasons,this one brought two more jersey projects as Christmas gifts for my nephew and brother-in-law.I actually started on these a few months ago so they would be ready in time,but with them going to Hawaii for Christmas and myself in Texas during the Holidays,they were given as late gifts.I wont be back to Louisiana until the end of this week but thankfully I uploaded these to photobucket

and so I am sharing them with you all here now.Just for description sake,the first is the Jacksonville Jaguars and former Razorback QB Matt Jones.This jersey features my 'swingman' style numebering,where all of the outlines are printed onto a single piece of white tackle-twill,in the same style used in Swingman basketball jerseys and Reebok's EQT football jerseys.This ensures that all of the outlines will be even,and it's also easier for sewing as the needle does'nt have to pass through 3 layers of tackle-twill.Not only that but it saves costs for materials as well.The one thing that is noticeable and I could really do nothing about is the teal-colored collar.I could'nt get a blank jersey with a black collar and to sew one in COULD have been done but since it was just a gift for my nephew and I wanted to keep costs down I opted against it.Next is the Arkansas Razorbacks and their stud freshman RB Darren McFadden,which I made for my brother-in-law.It features CAD-cut numbers and letters,which is basically screen-printed and is very close to the Hogs actual jerseys.Also these jerseys are the first ones I've ever made with nameplates,which really makes a big difference in the overall look and had I known how much simpler this made the process I would have gone with the nameplates much sooner.The only downside is that my seamstress screwed-up the sewing of the nameplate by only sewing down the stitching that already existing on the plate,so the edges are not sewn-down but of course this will be corrected in future projects.I hope you guys enjoy the pics and I look forward to your thoughts and comments on them.Also,a note to a couple of members here who are awaiting jerseys:Your jerseys are ready and were supposed to be shipped before I left for Texas,but I had soem things come up and then had to get ready and leave in kind-of a rush so I was not able to get your jerseys shipped before Christmas.I'm very sorry for this and promise I'll be getting them out as soon as I get home.Happy New Years everyone!!

How did you print the NFL equipment logo? Is that stitched like the real ones or is it just print. BTW, as soon as i set up my PayPal account, we'll talk on that jersey i asked about. Awesome work man.

Great work, Robbman.

The only thing that looks weird to me is the NCAA/SEC patch on the Arkansas jersey. It looks to me a little too big, or a little too low (from the game pictures, it looks like the patch is higher up, with the bottom edge even with the midpoint of the collar, not the point).

From what you've shown, it really doesn't show if you skimp on any details or steps (like the screen printed/tackle twill numbers).

Yeah...I did'nt notice that until you pointed it out.Where I went wrong is that I looked at the seam of the yoke on my jersey and compared it to that,not realizing that the yoke seam on the authentic is about 1/3 of the way up the collar.I think if compared side-by-side they would still be pretty close to the same spot on the jersey,it's just that the authentic one has a different cut.

thede are great. how much for a jersey and can you do basketball to??

I *can* do basketball but it really depends on the team and how detailed their jerseys are.Also I can get almost any blank football or baseball jersey but I'm very limited on what blank basketball jerseys I can get.If there is something specific you've been looking for just let me know and I'll see if I can help.
