I just called Chestnut Hill Sports, which is right by my parents. They have replica jerseys on sale for 80 and a flat 50 for customization. Since 130 is better than any price I've seen online, I went ahead and ordered myself a Richards.

If you want to do the same, or stop by and talk to the guys, get their contact info here: http://www.chestnuthillpa.com/MemberProfile.aspx?ID=491

Great picture of Hartnell rocking the old-school hair with the old-school jersey.

By the way, does anyone know whether stores are customizing jerseys with the true retro style numbers and captain letters, or are they using the home and away sets like last night? I'm really hoping they have the former. On the off chance that I am able to buy one, I'd want to go all the way and have it truly retro with the numbers and letters. I posted links to pictures of the two styles. Note the numbers "1" and "2," and the alternate captain letter "A."

Icethetics has a good comparison right next to each other for the change in lettering.

My jersey came! I'm very pleased with it, especially for $130, but some of the stitching is a little messy (at least it has stitching!). Not in the sense of being uneven, but of being pretty big, visible stitches with a few natty ends that I'm cleaning up myself. My only point of comparison is to an authentic jersey I got last year that was gorgeous and flawless in every way.

My question is this: when you get a new jersey, do you obsessively wear it for no reason, or do you hang it up and wait for a gameday / trip to a bar / trip to a game / or something else?

P.S. Numbers are the new style, which is fine with me.

I wear my Forsberg one every where, but other than that, I wait for important reasons. Playoffs, when i go to a game, stuff like that. No bars because well I make a mess. And I dont like getting my jerseys dirty lol.

Yeah, my thinking in getting one of the new jerseys was that I could wear it out more easily and since it's a replica I don't mind if it shows a little wear. The authentic is the pre-edge style which I assume is now hard to get, and since it seems to be invincible I expect it will last for my entire life if I'm careful with it.

S.I. ranks the jerseys. Flyers are third best on this list:

Maybe they look like a bunch of pumpkins on ice, and, yeah, the black and orange is a bit Halloweeny, but this third is less trick than treat. Besides, the bright orange means no excuses for missing them when they barrel in to plant you against the glass.

Icethetics loses all credibility with theit 3rd jersey rankings. They have the Flyers ranked 12th out of the 18, behind the likes of Ottawa, Tampa Bay and Carolina. Wow, just wow.

And I was always a fan of the modified third jersey Flyers logo from back in the day.
Utter and complete failure. ALL credibility.

Also, I think the white and orange work really well - I was worried that it wouldn't with the paneling of the Edge jerseys.

I agree with the ties though, that would be cool..


But yeah, the Flyers 3rd is top 5 at least, up there with NYI, EDM and a few other. All the black alts BLOW

Except LA, I kinda like it for some reason.

Buffalo's would be really good if it wasn't for the silver piping.

The Flyers jersey looks closer to creamsicle than the bright orange in that photo.

So there is this article on PuckDaddy giving a pass/fail to this alternate jersey the Phantoms have. Personally, I think it's fail. BUT, this is what I found most interesting about the article (which is here.. http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puc...urn=nhl,141947 )

Quote:
One more bit of Philly fashion news from the great Icethetics: The Flyers are expected to wear their orange third jerseys as their home sweaters beginning next season. We're not even going to pass/fail that one, because it's a massive pass.
If true, I'm ECSTATIC!!!!!!!

I hope they come up with a new away jersey that fits the style of the oranges.

I imagine the blacks would become the third jersey, the way they started out.
