JeffB Posted December 24, 2006 Report Share Posted December 24, 2006 The last week while I have been out shopping at the malls I have come across a couple of stores that carry NHL jerseys from CCM and have disappointed to see the quality of the customizing has taken a turn for the worse. I first noticed a Los Angeles Kings Gretzky jersey. The "sewing" on the 9's on the sleeve didn't look right so I turned the sleeve inside out and found that the "stitching" on the numbers was fake! There were no threads from the stitching on the inside. There was a line of zig-zag thread on the surface of the 9, but it didn't go through the number and into the jersey at all. It was glued on! I also went into the Minnesota Wild Hockey Lodge offical team store at the Mall of America and found some jerseys where the stitching was real, but also found others with the same fake stitches on the surface of glued on numbers. Sure, the other ones look the same, but it just seems like a deception to me and I'd rather buy a blank jersey and pay to get it done with a certain level of quality if I'm going to spend that much. If gluing the numbers on was ok in the first place, why fake the stitches at all? JeffB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
