Giant Bomb Hockey Jerseys Are (Finally) On Sale!

Customize your very own fine piece of Giant Bomb apparel today!

No Caption Provided

The opportunity to procure your very own Giant Bomb Hockey Jersey is finally here! Whether you exhibit the lithe grace of a Dino Ciccarelli or the board-pounding muscle of a Dale Hunter, you'll be sure to fit right into your local hockey rink's hijinks with this sweet piece of gear. It might not be as classy as a jean jacket, but it'll still be a fine piece of apparel for a night of ice fishing or smashing some Labatts down behind the Tim Hortons or waiting two hours in the cold for Sidney Crosby's autograph. It features a custom Giant Bomb logo on the front and your choice of name and number on the back! Click here to order!

That's right: you can choose whatever name and number you want to throw on the back of this bad boy! Memorialize your first pet (Gandalf!), or the object of your first crush (Gandalf?), or maybe your favorite literary character (Gandalf!) Or, you know, if you want to be quotidian, you could always just throw the name of your favorite hockey player (Gandalf!) on the back, or maybe even your own name (....Gandalf?). It's up to you!

(Fine Print: You can choose any name you like for the back of the jersey, but we reserve the right to cancel/refund your order or ask you to change the name if it's super inappropriate/racist/sexist/etc. You're the one who's going to have to wear this thing, so we're going to be pretty lenient here, but, you know...be cool. You can have a maximum of 12 characters on the back, including spaces!)

*These are all going to be custom embroidered, so there will be no returns or exchanges. Be sure to watch the video above to get an idea for the sizing you want, and be absolutely sure that the lettering/numbers on the rear are correct, and triple-check your shipping address before confirming your order! Colors are not customizable, sorry!

*You'll also want to double-check your sizing using this handy chart:

No Caption Provided

As you will have noticed, these are big, bulky garments! I personally going down one size from your regular t-shirt size if you intend on wearing this without pads underneath, but if you're at all concerned about sizing I'd recommend taking some measurements!

No Caption Provided

*International shipments will often run into extra fees for customs and tariffs depending on your country's laws! You will be responsible for paying any fees or tariffs that these packages incur on their way to you, so you'll probably want to check with your local customs office to see what those might be before ordering!

*The initial ordering window will end on March 1st, at which point the jerseys will go into production, which will take around four weeks. We'll open these back up for orders in the future sometime after this initial run ships.

No Caption Provided

*We have disabled some of the very cheapest shipping options so that all orders will have either signature required for delivery or point-to-point tracking and will also be insured, which wasn't possible with some of the cheaper shipping methods. Please make sure your shipping address will be valid for you at the end of March! I'd highly recommend getting this shipped to an office or other secure address where it won't be sitting on your porch. The person who orders the shirt will also need to be the one who signs for the package, according to our store partners, so you may want to make sure that it's ordered under the name of whoever will be receiving the package!

If you have any questions please leave them in the comments below and I'll do my best to address them!

Also what are the odds a bunch of GB fans who also play hockey just become "The Giant Bombs" and just play in these jerseys?

It just took our store suppliers a long time to find someone who could make them at the quality level we were looking for!

FYI: You may want to remove the transparency from the sizing chart. It's not readable on the dark theme of the site.

Serious question: is it possible to get the nameplate stitched on below the numbers, like NWHL sweaters?

There was some talk on the bombcast about the crew's favorite numbers I think.

Also that sizing chart doesn't look great on dark site theme. :)

There is currently a problem with adding spaces to the name! We're looking into it and will hopefully have a fix sometime soon.

Hey @rorie - who's the jersey manufacturer? I can't tell from the cut, and (having particular feelings about hockey jerseys) that'll help me figure out if I'm gonna buy one.

Thanks!

With FedEx you can request that a delivery be held at a local FedEx store. The same is possible with UPS.

Hi @rorie - I live in an apartment building with a concierge who signs for all resident packages. In a situation like this, should I have it delivered to my apartment number with the name "[Building Name] Concierge in care of my name" or something similar?

$58.27 shipping and $60 in import fees is a bit steep. Might still get one tho.

I'm not 100% sure on that; you may want to contact orders@socialimprints.com to verify what you should do here!

About $150 more than I could justify spending, but it looks like a fair price for what you get. They look REALLY nice.

The nameplate as a whole is one big print that is stitched on; the letters aren't individually stitched on.

So tempted to order one, but Florida weather definitely does not agree with a hockey jersey.

Sorry, I'm very inconsistently on Twitter these days. I'm not sure we have current plans to restock that t-shirt based on the sales, but I believe the hoodies featuring it should come back in stock soon!

Hey Rorie,

It would really helpful if you could put in the article how tall you Jason and Jeff are, so we could use the video as a guide when it goes back up.

A list of what each of your numbers would be. Only names I wanna put on a jersey are players on the team, so we need your official numbers!

Nooo!

Couldn't order it first time round due to money issues, and I can't see myself getting another hoody anytime soon :( Thanks for replying though.

The jersey looks really great. A bit too pricey for me but the customization is a really great idea to do.
