OT - Peppers Jersey

Submitted by Bo Glue on August 15th, 2016 at 12:38 PM

I've been looking around for a Peppers jersey, because it seems like the most comfortable apparel in which to watch us punch in faces next month. I just can't seem to find any legit vendors online from which to buy one. Where's the best place (in town or online) to get said jersey, and are there any Nike versions out yet?

Nike isn't selling that number, so you'd have to go the MDen custom route, sans name, right? Someone posted a couple weeks back their wait time is something like a couple months right now. So... Might have to wait.

You'd have to go the custom route. I don't MDEN will actually do a #5 with Peppers on the back, but you might be able to get a custom #5 with no name on the back and then have the name sewn on yourself.

I picked up a #23 MBB jersey last year and had the last name sewn on myself.

Just a heads up (as I know most are unaware) but there will not be a Nike version... Jordan brand (nike child company) is making all of the football apparel/jerseys.

There's a shop (or at least used to be) around the corner from the Nickels arcade that used to make all of the nameplates for football and hockey. It's possible you can get them to sell you a Peppers one and sew it yourself onto a #5 jersey.

If you are really concerned about getting the name exactly right, could you maybe team up with someone to get this done? One person orders a PEPPERS 88 jersey, the other a BUTT 5 jersey, and then find a good tailor who can switch the name plates? (If they are, in fact, name plates. My eyes are poor but I know a lot of jerseys seem to be done this way.)

You can get one at cheapjerseys.xyz -- but it is adidas -- they haven't updated to Jordan yet.  Yes, I know--it's a counterfeit site --but, believe me -- I'm as picky as anyone, and these jerseys are legit.  My friends and I swear by them for NFL, NHL, and MLB.  They have all tags attached, and the material feels real.
