Luckily my mom has her own small sewing business she runs out of her basement so she was able to stitch everything down for me (numbers, front crest, event patch, reebok logo and captain's C) with the zig-zag stitching. Overall...not bad for NHL.com I must say.
My brother got the same jersey for me at Dick's Sporting Goods. Same heat-pressed letters, but they are done very well. Would be nice to have them stitched, but apparently heat-pressed is the norm for the WC jerseys.
On another note -- anyone know of a way to soften up the front crest? It's a bit stiff.
That's what she said.
It's probably just that I'm not used to wearing a jersey with a large crest. Ranger fans have been spoiled!
