I really like this. It’s the classic Pittsburgh colors (instead of the gold they use currently) and it really has that retro look. Very nice. Well done. One of the best looking jerseys in hockey right now.
What I like about these new Blues uniforms is that they look nothing like their old set. Removed are the unnecessary pipings and the odd color placements. Instead it’s a simple classic look that is similar to what they wore before Reebok Edge took over.
Sometimes simplicity is the best and the Blues nailed it. It’s a jersey you’d be proud to wear. Good job!
I’ve critiqued a few changes in my last entry, but I think I will go for a full rundown. Uni Watch breaks them down in the above link, so I will comment on each story.
Let me first say that I hate the idea of Christmas uniforms. I think the money grab is really unnecessary. But people eat it up. I liked the old look of just a snowflake. But overhauling it is not something I dig. But since they are going to do it, at least this year’s look doesn’t offend me.
I have tickets to the last concert at Candlestick Park.
But Joe Montana and a bunch of his NFL friends are going to play a flag football game there for one last hurrah. And as you can see, they have jerseys. But if you need to know, this event was brought to you by Hewlett Packard. That’s an official sponsor for the 49ers.
A great looking simple uniform ruined by that corporate logo. But of course, in this day and age, what isn’t sacred from sponsorship logos?
