Brian’s Pad of the Week: Beauty of Embroidery

Brian’s Pad of the Week: Beauty of Embroidery

Brian's Emblem PadsInGoal Magazine has shown off a lot of spectacular custom work by the good folks at Brian’s Custom Sports over the last few months, but not every custom order has to be as spectacular and detailed as Chris Mason’s Nashville Predators equipment.

Sometimes a little added embroidery is all it takes to set your goalie gear apart.

In the case of these Brian’s Pads of the Week, some simple embroidery on the outer roll was all it took to really set this set of Sub-Zero’s off. It’s not entirely dissimilar to the No. 41 that NCAA Champion Noora Raty had stitched into the outer roll of her Team Finland Brian’s G-NETik pads for the recently completed Women’s World Championships.

The best part is anyone can have it done. Simply provide your dealer with an image and it can be applied to the gear in any location.

Obviously there is an additional charge for the custom work, and it depends on what you want done. Talk to your detailer, but as the folks at Brian’s proved with the incredible detail in the recent “Two Jacks” pads, which combined iconic – and easily recognizable – images from The Shining and Pirates of the Caribbean on the face of the pads, anything is possible.

    I’d love to see someone do a custom Brians design where the design comes to life when the wearer is in the butterfly position, i.e. when the pads are horizontal to the ice surface.
