Next Seasons Jersey Maker

Post by Original Magpie » Fri 23 Sep, 2011 6:30 pm

Does anyone know if X -Blades is the jersey maker next season?

I hope not because the Jersey sizing from X - Blades is a joke and the quality of jerseys is rubbish

I had a problem with jersey sizes this year. It's not thea ida tired but where the jersey is made. Jerseys with a "made in china" tag are one size smaller than ones with a "made in Australia" tag.

Eg: a "made in china" medium is a "made in Australia" small.

I was bought an Australian made jersey size small, and it fits better than a Chinese medium.

I hope this helps.

Personally I hate the X-Blades jerseys we've had lately.

I much prefer collared jerseys and ones made from polyester, not the material used for the 08-10 and 2011 jerseys.

I bought 2 jerseys (a white one and a pink Women in League one) which were labelled as the same size. 1 fits perfectly and the other is so tight I feel self-conscious wearing it. I also got a 10 yr anniversary one that was labelled as a women's size 16, and it only just fits my 10 year old who wears kids size 14, so I think the sizes are a bit out of whack.

when i got my jersey this year i was disappointed. it was far smaller than expected (even though it said L it felt like an M) and not great compared to some past years. the material also stinks up insanely fast when you wear it.
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

As I said, the jersey sizing depends on whether it is "Australian made" or "Chinese made".

I bought a Chinese made medium, and its tighter than an Australian made small. Australian made jerseys also have much more stretch in them and pull back into shape fine.

If you look at the tag where it says the size and look for "Made in Australia" . From the sounds of your posts ild bet you ha e a Chinese made jersey.

I bought a cheapie from Best & Less (because I'm a cheapskate) and it fits me great! :P

I hope it's not Canterbury. I'm fairly happy with X-Blades, but if we did change from Blades I'ld hope it was to Kooga. Their jerseys are very light and the fabric is fairly comfortable.

I'd go for ccc or kooga. Just not isc. Wouldn't mind classic, peerless, m-sport, westamont or goodfellows either.

I bought a 2009 jersey thought I would get a 4xl thinking it would be big and I could wear it over a jumoer at the footy wrong it was tight so I ended up with a 5xl. In comparison I have an old 80's Balmain Jersey and a 1996 Jersey that are both XXL and fit me about the same as the 4xl does.

This thread needs to be closed down as a matter of urgency. Any other clubs' fans reading it will assume Tigers fans are a bunch of fat, stinky bastards. ;)

I have multiple tigers jerseys from years gone bye and never seem to get the same size. Ive got larges that fit me right upto 4xl. admittly some the large sizes are touch tight.
X blades sizes change every year, i had to buy 4xl for this years jersey and im currently sitting in CCC jersey that is a 2xl and has more room in it then my tigers jumper. Hope next year CCC are making them. Kooga would be a good option to though.

I'm not the smallest of the blokes going around but certainly not a 4xl.
