    Are they available anywhere? All the teams wear them in games but I can't find any online. Specifically looking for FIRE, but interested in others.

    Long-sleeve jerseys are harder to find in general it seems (except for maybe the Kappa ones). Don't know why that is. I've always thought they looked cooler.

    For the bigger teams it's not hard to find long sleeve jerseys, but smaller teams like in MLS it's damn near impossible.

    www.metrostars.com offers 2 long sleeve jerseys from last year for sale.

    Damn those are sharp. I wish they had changed the logo and just kept the old jersey.

    =/ oh well.

    But yeah, It's real hard to find long sleeve jerseys period.

    soccer.com has an Ajax champs league jersey that is long sleeved but it is only available in small.

    Some clubs, such as DC United,hold team equipment sales occassionally throughout the year. At these sales you can find anything from long sleeve jerseys, old player jerseys, warm-ups, practice uniforms, socks, jackets, etc., all on sale. Usually, when a club gets a new jersey, the spare jerseys of the out-going style are sold.

    If you are unsure about whether your club does this, you may just want to contact them and ask. They've got to get rid of their old equipment someway or another.

    I have a bindle at this point...
    West Ham United FC
    Nat'l Team:
    Reebok are the only large kit manufacturer to sell long-sleeved shirts. You can get long-sleeved home and away shirts for Liverpool, Bolton, West Ham, Manchester City and Hearts. They are moderately popular but it entirely depends on whether the shirt looks different with sleeves (West Ham's home shirt looks awful with long sleeves). It is nice to have the choice, eventhough it costs £5 extra.

    Reebok is not the only company to sell long sleeve jerseys..... Nike, Adidas, and many others sell them.

    But in regards to MLS, getting long sleeve jerseys is rather difficult.

    Nothing recent. You can pick up a vintage replica of the USMNT from the 40's or 50's but those are in cotton and look damn heavy.

    The Fire had a used and new (old) equipment sale a couple of weeks ago and they had some long sleeve jerseys for sale. This is the only time I've ever seen long sleeve Fire jerseys for sale. As others noted, they are not usually for sale to the public, but just some last season extras.

    Many teams have equipment sales (lik DC United) where you can pick up old or never-worn long-sleeve jerseys. Another way to get one is to contact the team's equipment manager.
