Where to buy decent jerseys
on: November 25, 2017, 11:10:06 AM
I've seen good looking jerseys at tournaments and Nationals, so decided it's time to get some for myself (Xmas present). I have to admit though that just by looking online at the major providers I know of, it's a big disappointment. Everything I see looks like content-free, no thought required, "here's the new one this week" garbage. I won't name the sites I've visited out of respect for not trashing their product, but do you guys use the custom design route, or are there stock patterns I'm just missing?

They have artists for that, I'd have no idea about it either, I can't even draw a stick figure right.  Just give them some basics and they can come up with something. 

You guys must have more artistic talent than I do then. I wouldn't even know how to create a design... Of course, having more artistic talent than me is pretty easy.......

That should be interesting. I'm the only guy I know who followed a Photoshop example illustrated step-by-step and had a result that was something from a parallel universe by step 3.

All the major brands are going to be the same when it comes to stock stuff.  Designing a jersey costs a lot and takes several weeks.  I prefer Logo Infusion, I like the material the best.  It's sturdy but breathable, and has withstood plenty of times of the dog jumping on me and dragging their nails all over the material.  I have several Logo jerseys and my wife has one as well.  I'm not affiliated with them, but were I to choose a company to be on with, it would be them.

Interesting. My biggest complaint with Logo Infusion is that the jerseys snag easily. I've bought quite a few and about half of them have snags in them. I'm starting to hear from others with similar experiences. Other than that, they are quite good.

I did really like the "Ice" material that was an option with Boom Apparel. However, I believe they went out of business. Not sure if anyone else has similar material. That stuff actually kept you cool and was extremely durable compared to Logo Infusion's material.

Haha that would figure.  The dogs have torn up my other ones from jumping or the washing machine has worn them down, but my Logo jerseys look just like when I bought them.

Has anybody ordered from Rift Apparel yet? They're the only company selling a Visionary jersey and it looks pretty sweet.

I was looking at that earlier but don't have one yet.

For all their other jerseys, here is the link:

Rift Apparel takes a long time to get since its coming from Ireland/England i believe. Bowlifi looks interesting though and pretty nice priced but idk on quality since ive never tried.

I have to admit, I see more styles I want on Bowlifi than all the other sites put together... I just spoke to them in chat and will be placing an order. Shirts are half price until the end of the month. They say the shirts are polyester, but I don't know if that's good or bad compared to the others...? No idea how good they are though... Any one ever order from them?

I think you would be fine in the winter, unless you go in a center that doesn't climate control very well or summer leagues, or going to Nationals in Vegas.

$14.95 for shipping from Bowlifi is unacceptable.  Shipping should be more like $6.00

I hadn't checked shipping, BUT a shirt price of $39 for the rest of the month counters it in my view... At least for a try.
