When you're talking about the retail CCM/RBK jerseys, are you talking about the boxier jersey cut that was phased out of the NHL in 2007? If so, I was also between a L and XL when I wore a retail jersey over my pads. For reference, I am 6", but I have freakishly long legs.

I'd say go with a 56 to be on the safe side. They're plenty streamlined. I wear 56 in a Reebok Edge/CCM Quicklite cut and they're both perfect for me. Lastly, I did once rock Adidas practice jerseys in a size 52 (the nicer air-knit retail jerseys places like Rev Up Sports used to carry), but those were SUPER tight. I have no idea how or why I put up with them for so long.

Hope that helps steer you in the right direction.


In Topic: Removing Stripes from Pants

15 January 2024 - 12:56 PM

I've also done this myself with a seam ripper, and on a similar pair of Calgary Flames pants, no less. Those 2007-2021 pant stripes were terrible (as was the rest of the uniform that was paired with them) and I can't say I blame you for wanting to send them to the landfill.

Anyway, the only hurdle I ran into was with the bottom seam of the pant legs, which as you tell from the picture, is sewn over top of the stripes. I ended up partially unstitching those as well and just leaving it loose, which thankfully didn't result in any kind of catastrophe, but I wouldn't recommend it and there's probably an actual proper way to deal with it. Sorry I couldn't be more help to you on that one, but hopefully someone else chimes in.

EDIT: Forgot to add that all you should need to unstitch on the stripes is just the stitching on the white stripe, as the other layers are sewn on top of that and not to the actual pant itself.

Five grand for a pair of used skates someone glued hastily cutout portions of a New Balance sneaker to, which might be good for a laugh once, maybe twice? Hard pass.

Non-profit mental health hockey program? LOL. LMAO, even. If someone on SLS told me the sky was blue, I'd look out the window to double-check.

If you're the kind of person who's so desperate to sell something that you need to create a hundred billion hashtags so that they show up all over my unrelated saved searches, I hope you fucking die.
