authentic jerseys are only made the year that jersey is "active"

the nhl does not make "retro" or "vintage" authentic game jerseys

So they can be "legit", but not "authentic"?

It's legit when it's licensed and not a knock off?
And authentic means "exactly what the player wears"?

authentic, by what he means is - game worn fight strap the whole shabang

what everyone's mostly buying is authentic replicas by that sense legit replicas or watered down version of the game worn jerseys

if that is true, that is news to me.. i always assumed authentic meant legit... at least by the true definition of authentic.

i always thought "game worn" or "pro" meant the ones the players wear.

but what do i know... they change up the names all the time.. wau back when ccm was still making the jerseys, there was replica, semi pro, and pro

People that do not buy authentic jerseys usually don't for 1 reason...price

Why is it so important that a jersey be legit when the majority of people can not spot one anyways (provided its not printed NASLAND and the numbers are straight).

If someone is that big of a fan that it has to be legit why aren't they goin one step further and buying the real thing.

I think the big reason is that you CAN spot fakes.. like a sore thumb!

I've actually seen Knock offs with the fight strap or tie down, but are not near the quality

The quality of Authentic edge jerseys are better than premier replicas and everything on the edge jerseys are stitched (including the words vancouver) that's why.

But like you said, I buy premiers simply cause its cheaper than edge jerseys

edge is the name of reeboks jerseys.. isn't it premier edge and authentic edge? fucking all this terminology.

yea if u go to the team store u'll notice the difference in the type of finish...

say, for example, the stick and rink logo patch on the shoulders of premier jersey - it is regular print patch sown on the jersey, but on the authentic jersey, the logo on the patch is not a print, but its actually machine sown

so suttle differences



im not saying that the replicas are not authentic - they just decide to name game worn jerseys as "authentic" and the replicas as "premier" by all means they are both real and authentic in that they're not fakes u see on ebay




confusing, i know

Whoever named edge as "authentics" and premiers as "replicas" should be slapped in the back of the head. It should be:

Edge
Premier
Knockoff

That's it. No edge authentic and premier replica bs. Too confusing for the average consumer.

On another note I'm tempted to get a home kesler that's cheap...I already have a home and away hank so I unno

just because you can afford to buy a $400 jersey doesn't mean everyone else can. I feel perfectly comfortable buying a $150 premier replica and owning more than one for that price. I'm a huge fan but I don't see the value in having "professional" grade materials when I'm just wearing it to show my support for the Canucks

personally, 2x premier replicas > 1x authentic edge. But that's just me. I don't care if anyone else has an authentic or not. When it gets into knock offs, that's where the grey area is for me. I'll buy it to play ice hockey in (because then I don't care if it gets ripped/damaged) but I'll never wear it outside of that.

co-sign. Having an edge jersey is pretty pointless unless you really have that extra money to spend. Premier's are more than just for 'spilling drinks on'

What a fuckhead comment to make

Why would play ice hockey in a knock off, that shit doesn't breathe. Practice Jerseys are were its at.

Edge Jersey's are collectibles. ($400)
Premiers are for game nights ($200)
Knock offs are for everyday use ($40)

Who gives a fuck about what another man wears anyway. I don't walk around making fun of people for wearing knock off jersey's. You get what you pay for.

Ill post a pic when i get my first knock off. Going to be a CCM of a team and player not of the Canucks...

I have,

Kelser - 40th anny EDGE
Bieska Home - Premier
Luongo Team Canada - Premier
LeCLAIR Home nike authentic
Skate away no name - vintage ccm
2000 Whale one (No idea what its called) - replica ccm (not knock off)

Plus all my other jerseys from ice hockey when I was young.

Before you go ahead and rip the guy a new one, I'm pretty sure by "spilling drinks on" he was referring to the fabric on the premier/edge jerseys called Xtrafil. It's water repellant. It's also why they switched to airknit on all the team issued edge jerseys because players hated it. In reading his post he didn't make any snide remarks or come off with an attitude. He just said he had no problem buying an authentic of his favorite player and used premiers for messing around. What's wrong with that?

If I wasn't in a position to get authentic edge jerseys for cheap, I probably wouldn't buy them, or my collection wouldn't be what it is. Cheap edge jerseys can be had, you just have to know where to look!

I would never get an "edge" jersey to wear because 1) it is heavy as hell and hot to wear going out 2)it cost too much to wear... i don't need to wear a jersey with a fight strap 3)i don't wear hockey jerseys in general because i don't think they are fashionable at all 4)i only wear them if i am going to a game, or if it is playoff game nights.

those are MY reasons.. not knocking anyone who wears them daily or what not.... I wouldn't spend anything more than a premier because the premier's actually look really good unlike the replicas of old.

I am also the type that would never wear a team jersey for pickup or any kind of hockey unless it was a practice jersey.

Lastly, I would only get an edge jersey if it were framed and signed.
