Reach For the Sun, Or Wear It

October 02, 2012

 

Too bright. They look like very tall bananas. I liked the powder blue, who thought yellow would work? These are just a number of the possible responses fans could have after seeing the new Denver Nuggets alternative jerseys. The jerseys are bright yellow with the Denver skyline across the middle and the word “Nuggets” printed just below. No other team wears yellow quite the way the Nuggets have decided to do in 18 of their games this season, by wearing their new alternative jerseys. In addition to the bright yellow color, the Nuggets added a logo on the collar that is a “D” done in powder blue, the color of their regular home jerseys.

The uniforms remind us of those worn by the Golden State Warriors from the mid 1970’s to the mid 1980’s.

 

Recently, Jay-Z unveiled the Brooklyn Nets simple, yet stylish black and white jerseys while on stage at the Barclays arena. Those jerseys completely contrast to the Nuggets uniforms in every way.

  

Authentic Store Buzz:  Eagles 19 Giants 17. Big win for the Philadelphia Eagles over the rival New York Giants. At 3-1, the Eagles are off to a great start, and it's only going to get better from here. In fact, the Dallas Cowboys lost Monday night to the Bears, giving the Eagles sole possession of 1st place in the NFC East. Remember folks, Pro League Authentics has all of your Eagles gear. With a good selection of hats and jerseys online and an even greater selection of great shirts by Junkfood Tees in store.

In addition, with most of the National League playoff picture set, the American League is a mess. The Yankees and Orioles are fighting for 1st place in the AL East while the American League West is too close to call between the Rangers, A's, and Angels. The last three games should be exciting.

American Needle Fitted Hats

If you do not know your size, first determine where on your head you want to wear your hat. Usually it is worn about a half-inch to an inch above the eyebrows and/or just above the ears. Have a friend hold the tape measure (cloth, plastic, or download a printable version here) at the point where you want the hat to rest on your head.  Insert the tip of your little finger between the tape and your head.  Record the measurement and find your Fitted Hat size using the chart below.  This should provide you with a comfortable fit.

Apparel Sizing Tips:

Use these tips as a general guide when finding your measurements:

Chest/Bust: With your arms at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest, across shoulder blades and under arms.

Waist: To measure your natural waistline, wrap the tape so it intersects your navel. Keep tape flat, but comfortably loose.

Hips: Stand with your heels together and measure the fullest part of your hips. Make sure the measuring tape is level all the way around your body.

Inseam: Stand up straight, and start the tape measure high in your crotch. Straighten the tape down the inside of your leg to the bottom of your ankle.
