Personally, I've found buying one size up fits best.  I'm 6'2" and say 200 lbs depending on what I had for dinner.  In my everyday life I wear a size L in most shirt styles (I like a more fitted look) which equates to a size 52.  With the Adidas jerseys I'll buy a size 54 (XL).  It's a little loose but I'm not swimming in it.  It also allows room for a sweatshirt or jacket underneath.  The players probably wear 2 sizes up on the ice to account for pads (granted they don't have guts).  E-Rod is listed at 5'11" 184 lbs but wears a size 54 on the ice.  Eichel is listed at 6'2" 203 lbs and wears a 56.  Risto is 6'4" 220 lbs and wears a 58.  Hope this helps. 

It’s an arm length thing. The sleeves on the smaller sizes are just so incredibly long.

I usually have the opposite problem with buying shirts where the sleeves are too short.  I know it's an extra expense but going to a quality tailor to get the arms hemmed should be a simple fix.  I own some game used jerseys where the players have had this done.

Y'know, I'm not honestly sure I can differentiate between replica/bootleg. There was a noticeable difference in quality on some of the jerseys (and there were a ton, because Tuch is from around here and an army of folks supporting him were present). Now whether those were cheapo bootlegs or simple not the super duper official version, I couldn't tell ya. 

But I could tell which ones cost big moneys, and which ones most likely didn't as they were visually inferior based off the gold fabric alone. Maybe that won't be the case with the Sabres 50th. But the gold strikes me as a finnicky special fabric that's difficult to imitate. 

I really hope it's a bootleg thing.  The thought of officially team licensed jerseys not getting the color correct really makes me cringe.  The lack of the embroidery on the buffalo is kind of a crappy move for the replicas, but getting the color wrong would take that to a whole new level.

Typically, the most noticeable differences between the replica and authentic retail jerseys are:

Sizing:  Replica (L) vs Authentic (52)

Fight Strap:  Replica (none) vs Authentic (sewn inside)

Customization:  Replica (Heat pressed numbers and crest) vs Authentic (Sewn on)

Weight:  Replica is a lighter weight material than the Authentic

Tagging:  Replica (Fanatics tag on the outside) vs Authentic (No Fanatics tag)

50th Anniversary Crest:  Replica (As mentioned, no texture) vs Authentic (Embroidered like the on ice product)

While the quality may be different, the colors should be the same or very similar between the two.

Bootleg jerseys will attempt to replicate the Authentic (Sizing, Fight Strap, Sewn, Etc...).  As far as how they look, YMMV.

I'm hearing conflicting reports the arena store is sold out Adidas 50th jerseys. I know a couple local stores have them and quantities online are slim at NHL shop, cool hockey and ice jerseys.  Anyone go to the game last night and can clarify?

Size 46 and size 50. They really aren’t made for people like me. Lol

I much prefer the Reebok fit to Adidas.

Essentially the top one has no room in the stomach area for me. The 50 feels better through the chest and waist, but the last thing I need is for the arms and torso to be even longer.

Honestly, if you get the sleeves hemmed the 50 doesn’t look bad.

I can confirm this is correct. Adidas distributed a set amount to the team store and will not be producing any more. The poor quality Fanatics replicas are still available (and I would like to say Fanatics taking over NHL merchandising has been horrible as the quality has plummeted while the prices have soared). Shame as that was going to be my birthday gift, maybe hit up Cozens junior team and get one of their jerseys instead.

I have a ton of Sabres shirts that I have bought over the years. I recently ordered a new Sabres tshirt, fanatics branded, and found the material is incredibly lightweight and feels cheap compared to my older shirts. Some of my older stuff feels really good quality. this feels like the material you get from 3 dollar clearance rack. The price is still quite high. 

I also found there is no way to review the product
