v-man... you seem to be familiar with national team jerseys... Do you have any? or do you just follow the national team competitions?

I really like the "Suisse" flowing logo with the cross in the "u" that they used since the 1990's. Very classy. Their new federation logo is on the shoulder of the new style and is not, IMO, an improvement.

I have eight, ranging from authentics to knock offs, but mostly I just follow the international tournaments and have seen a lot of the old jerseys dating back to the 30's in photos on other sites.

How can you tell the sweaters are sublimated by just looking at a picture?

Because the surface is completely flat, and has no shine or reflective properties like it would were it screen printed. It's pretty distinctive. The better question would be "how can you not tell just by looking at the picture".

well. hes the kind of consumer their targeting i guess. Im pissed about the quality.. Good thing I got an AUTHENTIC from river city for the same price.. I hope they have the Italy team shirts and the VINTAGE jersey theyll be wearing.. im going to see russia vs italy on friday. and i think theyll be wearing them then! hopefully there is a raffle or some kind of auction! aaaahhh!

check out some of my collection here.. most of my international jerseys were sold. but i kept all my italys. and have about 5 more to add!

Y'know, I have to say I really liked the old Team Canada jerseys. I don't really like the whole retro look they're going for.

Am I the only one that thinks Hockey Canada took a step downward?

Not a fan of Canadas new jerseys, the old ones were fine. No need for them to go out and do this

the new ones are a million times better than the "red and black" old ones. thank god they finally changed...

woulda made more sense to have the bauer logo on them than the nike one. heck, bauer is giving away team canada (practice type) jerseys in Molson Canadian 20 packs so you'd figure they'd make the real ones have bauer on them as well (to go with the marketing)

look at the pictures. they are hand stitched just like any other authentic jersey. they aren't flat, you just have poor vision (it seems). the outline text of "canada" is clearly defined for one...

AFAIK the only parts sublimated are the nike logo on the front

And you have poor reading ability since the talk of sublimated jerseys revolves around the international team jerseys, not team Canada's. All of the international team jerseys other than the US, Sweden and Canada are sublimated. Take a look at them and tell me again I have poor vision Bud.

euro teams have always used dye sublimated jerseys made by 3rd parties for lesser tournaments.

youre wrong. . this tournament is "big" . and they will be using authentic jerseys made by nike.

the jerseys for sale at icejerseys are supposed to be replicas of the teams at the world championships. but they look of even lower quality than that..

All of the game worn, authentic jerseys will be sewn. No one is debating that. The fact is that Nike is selling cheap sublimated jerseys to most of the hockey world for the same price as Canadians, Swedes and Americans get higher quality sewn versions.

yup, but not just for this tournament, these are the official replica jerseys through to the Olympics in 2010.

I wonder if any stores in the US will have the new range of IIHF sweaters in.

sorry to update an old thread, but thought this was relevant.

From the Irish Ice Hockey Associations website.

"We were also told about the IIHF's ongoing contract with Nike. In the summer of 2010 a new one would be "redrafted" and signed in May. This will be approved at Congress. From the floor, France asked if individual countries could somehow "get in on" or be involved with Nike as well on a direct level. For example, they would like their replica jerseys to be made by Nike. It was said that this was up to Nike in France, but a good idea nonetheless."
