http://reviews.ebay.com/New-Era-Fitt...00000004085305

I`m in between those (57+ cm). The problem is that my head is not round and therefore when I keep the shield flat, it`ll leave small gaps in the corners (on the front side; which is probably common, I`m just not used to that lol). I tried both in my friend`s shop, one felt a bit tight, the other one a bit loose. But I guess those gaps are unavoidable, so I should focus on finding the right size.

Is it just a matter of preference? What do you guys prefer? Thanks in advance.
I'm probably not the best person to answer, but I'll give a response because its better than nothing I guess? I rarely buy fitted hats, but have bought a few. I do have similar issues with the sizing as I'm in between two sizes. The difference being that I don't do the flat brim thing. I think it looks dumb so I always curved it as normal. Probably comes from the fact I was always wearing hats while playing baseball and then casually, so its what I was used to very early on. The brims just are kind of weird when you do bend them, at least on fitted hats these days. If that isn't something you want to do, then I would encourage going for a different kind of hat. I was always big on the flex fit hats. Solid hat all the way around (not open in the back). Has a little stretch in the back so it can fit well if you're in between sizes. And the brim bends normally and holds well. Always was my personal preference. There are other ones that are similar that aren't as stretchy and are more sized out but aren't quite the New Era fitted hats.

If the fitted is what you want, then I guess it comes down to picking which one you feel is the best, most comfortable fit. The sizing issues though is why I always chose an alternative type of hat.

The few flat-brim hats I have I bend a bit. I love flex fit hats (very little sizing hassle) or snapbacks (0 hassle).

New era fitteds are bad IMO. Flex fits and snap backs are the best IMO. But go for which one fits a bit tighter or not as much space.

O shoot I forgot to post pics of my new jersey from jerseyexpress. It was backordered from last year and is one of the new RBKs. I'll try and remember to do it after work.

Can someone here maybe formulate a list of jersey manufacturers that supplied the Devils from '83 all the way up to 2012? Authentics and replica would be nice and you dont have to put in reebok because that's what's used by everyone now, I just need a list of older ones.

edit: well my jersey came in the mail today and it's great. Red shoulders, green stripes, white jersey. Logo's stitched in. Now it is an XL but it fits weird. After all the things 28 or so years old, from when they first started to play. Any way to deal with it? Alter size a bit or what? Just the sleeves by my wrist

Was on ebay last week and bought it from someone. Usually there's around 1-2 of them per month; There is a blank one for sale on there now, and a Fetisov one on there now. It's really just hit or miss with them... They used to sell the templates of the jerseys in small and medium at Prudential Center... I went a few times, and saw that

I emailed a place around me (I live in WNY near Buffalo) they said they might have the lettering so I can come to the store. But Id check everywhere around NJ NY etc. I'd check ice jerseys online too. And the NHL store in Rockefeller in NYC.

Best bet in my experience is to go to any local hockey shops. If there's a hockey specific stand alone store, that's a good bet, or the sports/pro shop at any ice rink near you. They either could do it, or would have a person they would send it out to in particular. Not sure where in the area you may be, but I took a jersey last year to Floyd Hall Arena (in the Montclair/Little Falls area). They have someone they send it out to who was the equipment guy for one of the area NHL teams in the past (or maybe still is associated with it? Don't recall). Regardless, I brought a blank RBK Devils jersey, got it back in 2 weeks and the quality of the stitching/customization was amazing. Only was about $45 or so for the personalization. I'm sure other ice rinks have places/contacts that are just as good. Just giving my experience personally on that one.

There's a hockey store in Montclair, don't remember the name of it anymore. The owner used to be the Devils equipment manager and has signed jerseys all over the place. So, thats probably where they sent it. Years ago (probably around 03), my dad ordered the Synergy grip for me for Christmas (when it first came out). When he went to the store to pick it up, the owner handed it to him and the blade was signed by Scott Niedermayer. He had been in the store about 5 minutes beforehand.

Do you know where that store is? I distinctly remember that the guy Floyd Hall Arena sent it to was in NY, not a store in Montclair. I do know a store near Montclair, but I believe it is technically in Cedar Grove, or maybe Verona? Its on Pompton/23. Somewhere between Bloomfield Ave and Willowbrook. Just can't remember exactly where the lines are drawn on there. Not sure if we're talking about the same store. The one I'm thinking of was actually the first place I went for my jersey. They don't do the stitching though. Their options were more heat press type stuff. It looked pretty good, but it wasn't what I wanted so I went elsewhere.

Yeah that could be the place, it might not have been Montclair, could have easily been Cedar Grove or Verona. That's probably where I went because he used to do all the heat press stuff for our spring league jerseys.

Not jersey-related, but I've been looking for the Devils version of the Mitchell and Ness "repeat vintage" t-shirt they were selling around the end of last season. I tried to get one then, but could never find it being solid in a size M.

The general design is this:


I can currently find this for many teams (including dead ones), but not the Devils one that says "JERSEY" in the background.

Interestingly, I knew about this shirt being sold in red, but then while sitting in the bar last night one of their TV's had some reality show on where a guy had it in green.

Also, on a more jersey-related note, does anyone have experience with getting a jersey tailored if it's just way too big on you?

If you can make it up there, they have the Devils one in red that says "Jersey" on it at the NHL store in NYC when I was there the other day. Not sure of what sizes they had though.

Fixing jerseys

I have a #9 Reebok jersey that I'd have would like to have a certain someone's name removed.

Anyone here have any experience or know if it's possible to get a name removed & replaced? Please help!!!

Wouldn't mind turning it into a Zajac jersey now...

I had Dorholt change my circa '07 CCM Parise to a "Broten" with a '95 SCF patch that I bought. If you search this thread, there's a photo of it somewhere. I think it was $30 to change the nameplate and sew on the SCF patch.

The store in cedar Grove was Mike Ashton's Sports Section on Rt 23 not sure if thats still the name but its almost exclusive Hockey. We bought many a mens league jersey there in the late 90/2000.They have tailoring in the back. The Montclair store may be Verona sporting Goods on Bloomfield Ave. about 1 1/2 miles up from the Mont border.
