Jerseys refer to sports wear mostly. A jersey as used in sport is a shirt worn by a member of a team, typically depicting the athlete’s name and team number as well as the logotype of the team or corporate sponsor. Cycling jerseys of specific colour or pattern represent certain statuses in cycling, such as the maillot jaune (yellow jersey) of the leader of the Tour de France, or the rainbow jersey. Cycling jerseys are usually made of synthetic microfiber material to aid in wicking sweat away from the skin to allow it to evaporate. Those jerseys are generally cheap on market, which can easily find online by Google search or Ebay/Amazon. The main garment of an NHL ice hockey uniform, which was traditionally called a sweater, is increasingly known as a hockey jersey. This garment, along with NBA basketball jerseys which are usually sleeveless and MLB baseball jerseys which are usually button up, have become fashion accessories.
Authentic NFL Jerseys is made of lightweight and moisture-resistant fabric as well as Flywire strength, the uniforms are built for high performance. A related term is “bib”, which may refer to a shirt (jersey, esp. in Britain). In Australian rules football, the player’s shirt is known as a “guernsey”.
In some sports, such as ice hockey (NHL Jerseys), baseball (MLB Jerseys), basketball (NBA Jerseys), and various football (NFL Jerseys) codes, a player’s jersey may be “retired”. When a jersey is retired that player’s jersey is placed usually where the team plays in honor of that player’s accomplishment. Generally, when a jersey is retired, the number on the player’s jersey is made unavailable for future players.
