It fits well and I would say it's pretty true to size. However, I have long believed that Nike's Game replica jerseys ran big. So compared to those, these do fit smaller, but I think that's because the other ones were too big to begin with. For example, I wear a large in pretty much all other clothing (shirts, button ups, polos, etc)...but with the Nike "Game" replicas, I mostly went with a small or medium. I went with a medium for the Vapor Untouchable Limited jersey and it fits perfectly. The sleeves don't hang way below the elbows like the Game jerseys, but rather just above the elbow perfectly. Also, the Game jerseys hemline usually hung too low but this one sits nicely at the waist.
Glad to help. Also, do you have any reasons that suggest we will get a uniform update soon? If we were going to do it, I would have assumed this would have been the year to coincide with the opening of MBS. I would love a more traditional look (perhaps a 21st century refresh of the 1966 uniform, red helmet and black jersey). However, I do think this year's template update gives us a little more lifespan in the current look. We had begun to look a little stale in the old school mesh and this update freshens it up a bit.
The cool thing is that this is the mid grade level jersey. So if you want the true style with the V shape design on the sides, you don't have to splurge for the $300 authentic model.
Also, regarding the screen printed sleeve logo on the throwback, that's actually the way the on field jerseys were, so they do match the player's jersey.
The new Nike Vapor Untouchable Limited throwbacks suggest those jerseys will also be updating to the new template, and this stock image suggests that the logos may now be sewn on. Take this with a grain of salt as this is just a retail stock photo, but this would be encouraging and a nice option for people wanting it sewn, so long as that is actually true.
Side note, while we are discussing throwbacks, I chimed in on that new mailbag thing they're doing on the team website and said this:
"I'd like to point out that since NFL rules prohibit us from wearing our red helmets to coincide with the 1966 throwback, we might as well do a true 1990s era look with the silver pants. We already have the black jersey and helmet. The combination of 1990s era helmet, 1960s and 1990s jersey (both eras had the same jersey) and 1960s pants and socks is odd. It's a weird blending of eras that we had never actually worn before until we called it a "throwback" last year. Just bring back the classic 1990s silver pants and call it a day."
This is a nice look. But we can't wear it with NFL rules now prohibiting other colored helmets. You see teams do throwback helmets now by keeping the same lid but swapping out the decals.
This was the Falcons solution to the helmet rule:
Also a very nice look. But totally inaccurate and not a real throwback. We never wore this style before last year. It pairs the 1990s style helmet with the 1966 style pants and socks. Of course, the jersey style was the same in the 1990s as it was in 1966.
Since they already have the jersey and helmet from the 1990s era, they should do it right and give us an actual 1990s era throwback. Either of these pants designs will suffice. The second one obviously has the Super Bowl history but I think the Deion era looks better.
It just bugs the crap out of me that they mix and matched different components from various eras and called it a throwback. We never wore that style before.
