I'm thinking about buying a new jersey. My main question is what size should I go for? I'm going to be buying a premier one.

 

I am about 5'-10", and weigh almost 175... i know, a bit chunky,

 

 

Thanks

Probably a large.  I would go to modells or dicks quickly and try one on just to make sure.

Nice and always loved Sarge.  I always tend to overlook him when I send out older CCM's to be customized but I have to make sure next one I get has his name on there.

It's a size 46 RBK 6100 that I got customized at EPS. Thanks I'm really stoked about this jersey. It's nice to have a jersey to wear that you don't often see at the Rock.

Where do I get a blank 550? I'm looking for a red so I can do a '95 Brodeur. It's for someone who wears a size small Reebok Replica.

Ordered one of the current jerseys with Clowe, and BAM, concussion, out for the season most likely. 

 

Such is my luck. Or his, I guess.

Just a quick thing I wanted to share - this past week I bought one of the Devils "Stadium Series" replica jerseys from IceJerseys (who I hadn't bought from before but showed me some very quick service; I ordered on Monday evening and received my jersey by Thursday).  I already owned the "Vintage Hockey" replica Devils road (i.e red and green) jersey, so I can now compare the two jerseys.
 
Similarities:
The biggest similarity is that they look to the untrained eye essentially the same.  The color scheme is the same and the striping is essentially the same, down to the coloring and width of the stripes.  They are much more similar to one another than they are different.
 
Differences:
The two jerseys are different from one another in a few ways, most of them subtle but one of them fairly obvious.  Those differences include:
 
*Tags - the Stadium Series jersey has an inside collar tag that says "Team Classics" at the top and has a large CCM logo underneath it.  By contrast, the Vintage Hockey jersey has an inside collar tag that has a CCM logo on the left and says "Vintage Hockey" on the right.  Additionally, the Team Classics/Stadium Series jersey says it was made in Indonesia, while the Vintage Hockey jersey says it was made in Canada.
 
*Waist collar CCM logo - both jerseys have a wordmark CCM logo on the backside at the bottom right side of the jersey.  However, the logo is different between the two jerseys.  On the "Team Classics" (Stadium Series) jersey, the CCM logo is shown in its "natural", three color form; the two "C's" have a red background and the "M" has a blue background, and the letters themselves are white.  By contrast on the "Vintage Hockey" jersey, the CCM logo is shown in a two color form, green and white; the two "C's" have a white background with a green letter, while the "M" has a green background with a white letter.
 
*Devils crest - the crest on the Team Classics/Stadium Series jersey is somewhat larger than the crest on Vintage Hockey jersey.  Interestingly, the crest on the white (home) version of the Devils' replica retro (1982-1992) jersey, which I bought a few months ago at SportsK (and is still being sold by SportsK), is larger than the crest on either Devils replica red and green jersey.  (IMO, the crest on the white Devils jersey also looks a little nicer too, but that's a side note.)  The white Devils retro jersey is also a "Vintage Hockey" tagged jersey.
 
*Material texture - by far the biggest difference between the two jerseys is in the texture of the material.  The difference is not dissimilar to the difference between the pre-2007 CCM replicas and the post-2007 Reebok premiers/replicas.  The Team Classics/Stadium Series jersey is made out of a lighter weight material, not the same as that used in the Reebok premiers/replicas but more similar in feel to that material than the material used in the old CCM replicas.  By contrast, the Vintage Hockey jersey is made out of a heavier weight material that feels essentially the same as the material that was used in the old CCM replicas (of which I have a few, mostly picked up for $15 each at Ollie's Bargain Outlet after Reebok took over the NHL merchandise contract and the CCM replicas were discontinued).
 
Incidentally, the two Devils replica retro road/alternate red and green jerseys were bought at different on-line retailers - my Vintage Hockey jersey was bought at CoolHockey, and my Team Classics jersey was bought at IceJerseys.  (Additionally, my Devils replica home white, red, and green jersey was bought at SportsK.)  To my knowledge and based on my experience with buying all of the jerseys, all three retailers are reputable.  (P.S. I've also bought a few other Devils, Devils-related, and WHA hockey jerseys and sports apparel items through SportsK in addition to the aforementioned Devils jersey.)

I think the "Stadium Series" jerseys that are being sold are the exact same jerseys that have been sold as the Devils' alternate/St. Patrick's Day jersey the last few years.  Unlike every other team that played a Stadium Series game this season, there were no new Reebok-tagged, Devils jerseys that were manufactured for the Devils' Stadium Series game.  Based on what I've read here and elsewhere, there are very, very few Reebok-tagged Devils retro/alternate jerseys floating around; almost all of the Devils red and green retros you see are either "Team Classics" CCM or "Vintage Hockey" CCM jerseys.

CCM has two lines of vintage jerseys going on: Team Classics and CCM Vintage.

The team classics line is the one that the devils have been selling since 2010 as replicas for the first retro night. The vintage line is what CCM has been selling for various jerseys of past designs and defunct teams for years.

Both are nice but there are issues with both. For the team classics the fit of them are kinda on the long side (almost like Mitchell and Ness jerseys) and they have been somewhat inaccurate. Their version of the 1994 rangers jersey is completely wrong with the wrong bottom striping pattern.
The issue with the vintage line is the quality of construction on them. I recently got a blue KC Scouts jersey from sportsk and it arrived new in the factory bag and I noticed about a two inch tear along a seam on one of the sleeves. I told sportsk about this and they said they were having issues with quality control for this line of jerseys with others arriving in factory sealed bags with jerseys with spots and holes. I am having mine fixed and customized by EPS at this time. The vintage line though has a better fit and overall better accuracy in general.

Yeah I got a stadium series patch and was going to have it stitched to my replica Elias retro but now I can't bring myself to have reminders of that game.

DevsMan84 - thanks for the additional insights about the Team Classics and Vintage Hockey jersey lines.  I guess I've been lucky (either that or haven't looked super-closely) with the Vintage Hockey series jerseys I've bought; I haven't had any issues with construction quality.  (Like you, I also bought the blue KC Scouts replica that SportsK started selling back in January of this year; I've also bought the Vintage Hockey versions of both Devils retros I mentioned above and a blue Colorado Rockies replica as well.)

 

One question for you - how does someone buy Team Classics versions of the retro jerseys for teams besides the Devils?  I was looking at SportsK and CoolHockey for retro jerseys, and all of the ones they sell appear to be from the Vintage Hockey line.  (On a related note, I know for a period of time a few months ago CoolHockey was selling both the Devils "Stadium Series" jersey, i.e. the Team Classics jersey AND the Devils "throwback" jersey, i.e. the Vintage Hockey jersey; FWIW they had the Vintage Hockey jersey priced lower.)  I don't intend to buy any non-Devils related retro NHL jerseys except possibly an original San Jose Sharks one, but I'm just curious.

I know not every team has a Team Classics version of their jerseys out. I know the Devils retro, the Rangers 1994 version and one more I can't think off the top of my head (leaning towards Pittsburgh) are the only ones that I've seen in the Team Classics line. I think those are considered the "superior" retro line that Reebok/Adidas (they own CCM) are putting out as that is the line they have on display at the NHL jersey in New York.

Also I forgot to mention that it is common knowledge that the old CCM 550 replicas never had knockoffs made, the except is the CCM vintage line had knockoffs made. They pop up on eBay all the time and you can tell them from the real vintage line as the knockoffs have smaller inside neck tags and the "V" on them is orange instead if the yellowish color the real ones have.

Very interesting. I always wondered if the NHL was ever going to produce reebok premier stadium series devils jerseys. I think they missed out on tons of merchandise sales.

Honestly I think it is more of Reebok being lazy than anything.  They don't like to make batches of jerseys only for a few to sell.  The retro Reebok's were authentics so they had an MSRP of about $300-350 each.  How many people are going to buy those?

 

Reebok likes to make things as simple (and cheap) as possible for themselves.  This is why they wanted the cookie-cutter design of the SS jerseys for all teams.  The other thing they did is that for the teams that did the cookie-cutter design, none of the jerseys had authentic versions for retail except for the Kings.  Therefore if you wanted an authentic (not replica) Rags, Chicago, Pens, Islanders, or Anaheim jersey you had to buy either a game worn or game issued jersey.

Well anyone is better than Reebok right now, but when their contract with the NHL expires in a couple of years I doubt they will move to another company.  Nike might give some competition but I really doubt it and I think they will stay.

 

I say either next season or the season after we will see Reebok's parent company Adidas putting their logos on the jerseys as apparently they want to make Reebok into a fitness fashion brand primarily geared towards women (but they will have men's stuff too).
