Hmm...looks good, but maybe removing the white from the sleeves would make it look even better IMO.

That being said, I really like your gold jersey
Thanks man! I do like the white away jersey it's just that I think the gold color has a better look and more vibrant and bold. While I personally do not wish for the Steelers to do away with the white altogether they could use the yellow version every so often. I think it would rock!

Default Re: MY STEELERS ALTERNATE YELLOW JERSEY

Thanks so much for the cool comments all! I found a yellow/gold blank jersey WITH spandex sides and cuffed sleeves at a team sports website that sells high school sports jerseys (blank or customized). I bought the blank jersey for $50. I wanted to make the jersey look as much as an authentic pro football jersey as possible. Fortunately I already had an authentic Nike Pro Line Kordell Stewart Steelers jersey, and I unstitched the NFL logo collar patch, the Nike Pro Line jock tag, and cut out the Steelers team logo patch. I also had an extra Jerome Bettis authentic Reebok away jersey (and it was too big for me anyway), and I unstitched the front, back, and shoulder black numbers. I unstitched the Bettis name from the back. The letters were yellow with black underlay. I removed/unstitched the yellow letters and kept the black letters. Then I went to Joann Fabrics and bought a sheet of iron on adhesive paper backing. After I finished ironing the adhesive paper backing onto the numbers, patches, etc, I positioned them onto the jersey and ironed them on. I then went to a reliable seamstress/tailor shop and had them sew the numbers and patches. Finally, I went to a very reputable sports customizing shop and had them stitch the colored stripes onto the sleeves. I then added the black Nike swooshes above the stripes on the sleeves. I was soooo thrilled with the finished product and am really proud to own it. I think it looks pretty durn professional from a nobody like me!

Sorry, I am not taking orders since I can't. This is mainly due to the fact that the only place that was willing to provide and add the stripes onto the sleeves no longer do it. I even had to "persuade" them to do it for me in the first place (even though they were not authorized to do so due to policy!) I can't really disclose much more than that, seriously.
About the elasticated end of the sleeves- I understand. I just could not find a yellow blank with smooth banded sleeves (and I've looked EVERYWHERE). But hey, like I said before, I tried to make this jersey as close to an authentic pro jersey as possible.

Where did you get that pic? Source? It's really cool! I totally dig the black pants with the yellow stripe- that's HOT!!

P.S. Never mind, I found the source, thanks for the link dude!

I reckon SMR`s jersey and Borski`s pants.....have you guys thought about approaching the Rooneys with your ideas?
Maybe the Steelers aren`t the best at the moment but they would certainly look the coolest in that strip!

I agree. I think they would look fantastic together like that. That would be great if the Rooneys could be approached with this, but how in the world would I be able to contact them or the Steelers organization? I don't just mean by going to steelers.com, but who and where more specifically should I contact?
