Unless you have the original beside you, I find it's hard to tell. And it's probably only the keeners on this board that would notice anyways.

Definitely the wrong font for the numbers.

Where'd you get it?

The left side of the 4 is vertical not slightly angled? Should the 'o' on the red jersey be round as opposed to having the corners cut?

I'm not sure, I'm comparing it to a vintage jersey.

Ah, numbers too thin. A little bit, but it isn't too bad. The numbers on the vintage don't look that thick but then they are three colours.

Edit -

If it's any use, use this for comparison

You should either order from nhl.com, or the Canadiens' boutique. You'd be guaranteed to get the real font. Maybe you could return it. Try to find out.

Because you paid full price to get a play jersey, I think you should really ask them to fix the problem or pay you back. They obviously didn't deliver what you asked for and they promised. I would call on monday first thing in the morning and stir up a fuss if they don't give you what you want.

I agree, but when you pay for an authentic, it's a little irritating !!!

You need to write to Monsieur Eaton. But he may be insulted.

Is the price similar? And are they real jersey? I want to ask a Habs jersey to my girlfriend next year and I was wondering how much it will cost and where's the best place to buy one.

I'm also wondering if I should take a Kost jersey, or a Price one...

Doesn't get any more authentic than the vintage jeresy in that pic

But I see what you are saying. If you are unhappy with a service these people have done for you, especially for a large amount of money, you should contact them at first opportunity to discuss it with them. But don't blast them right away, try and be understanding. And then, if they are useless and won't help you, then blast them.

I think icejerseys.com have an offer on merch for none playoff teams until midnight tonight EST, check out their webpage for further details. It's something like 30% off jersey cost (not customising or shipping). If the offer still applies, you know what you want and they have it, you might be able to get a good price on it. As for a Price jeresy, do we know what number he'd wear for the Habs yet?

I think that's the best advice.

Ask yourself the question: "What would Alexis Emelin do ?"

Thanks for the advice.

Personally, I'd disagree. What if matlamenace calls them up and gives them all hell before they can get a word out when they might be more than willing to help him out. Going out of your way to **** someone off when you want them to do something for you is a bad strategy. Be civil at first and get your point across and see what they say. If they help you out, you get what you want and solve the problem calmly and without fuss. If they don't help, then give them a hard time over it. Personally, when one of the customers of the company I work for calls up and ******* at us to do something for them, even when it's not our mistake, it annoys the hell out of us. If they have a problem, they should deal with it like an adult first, makes the relationship between company and customer much smoother and easier to work with. Anyone who moans their head off at us for no reason gets their job done dead last for the day. Or week.

Dear sir or madam,

I recently made a purchase of a customized Montreal Canadiens jersey through your website. When I received the jersey I noticed that the numbering on the back of it does not match the official numbering of the NHL franchise. (provide picture link here to show both fonts). I was under the impression that your service provided authentic letter and number kits on all its jerseys.

I would either like a) to be able to return the jersey, and obtain a refund, in whole, or b) a new jersey that uses the official numbers.

Thank you for your understanding,
Karl Dykhuis
Maybe someone can improve upon that. I whipped it up quickly.

Dear (name),

I am very disappointed with a recent purchase I made through sportsk.com. I ordered a customized Montreal Canadiens jersey with "Kostitsyn 46" on the back, which cost me $220.

I received my jersey today to find that the numbers on the jersey are not the right font -- they are noticeably more thin than what the pros wear. This might seem like a minor point, but I paid a large sum of money for a jersey that looks exactly like those worn by NHL players.

I have been given the name of two retailers who are guaranteed to use the real font for such a jersey. If you can not fix my jersey, I will gladly return it for a full refund so that I can make a purchase through one of the other retailers.

Sincerely,
(Your name)
