City Edition gear back in stock

I was hoping they would let you do custom jerseys but they only have Book, Paul, and DA (so far).

My fav thing to this point is the beanie hat.

Official team gear is way too expensive. $35 for a t-shirt? A long sleeve t-shirt for $48? No way in hell.

I'm surprised they still sell this banner:

It looks like the sun is falling. Such a terrible design. I would have ordered it if it were the other way around.

Just to vent, I have to say I'm really surprised. Suns City gear sold out last year and they know fans were buying knockoffs.
So this year, instead of getting more stuff in stock, they instead half ass it, get limited quantities, and are sold out of jerseys again.

The other gear was mostly the same as last year instead of coming up with new design ideas for the city (the beanie hats are a bit different which is my point).
This is just very lazy and I would think irresponsible of whichever companies are making everything.
Perhaps we see more Nike stuff in January, but until then, they are losing a ton of business. Especially with the holidays around the corner.

(Note: I was able to order what I wanted so I'm not saying this out of spite)

I'm actually kind of surprised in general how little effort NBA merch usually gets. You'd think with all the possible fashion resources any of these organizations have, interns, sponsors, etc, that you'd be able to do more than the occasional good jersey and hat. How often do we see random concepts from fans that end up being tons better than the Nike or Adidas product?

I guess it's also possible on a side note that the Suns City gear is sitting on a boat off the coast somewhere not being shipped?
