    Jersey Trends

    First:  I hate the look of many of the current jerseys.  The different colored shoulders just bother me.  Here's the B's for reference:

    Now, the Russian Olympic team has taken it a step further.  I think this is one of the worst jerseys I've seen in a while:

     

    There's the other side, however.  They call it the "clean" look.  The goal is to make the look much less busy.  I think it makes them look like practice jerseys at best.  The Coyotes started it.  They went from that awesome crazy Southwest theme

    to pajamas:

     

    Also, the laces in the front have to go.  They serve no purpose.  They look like they belong on something from Forever21:

     

    Just give me a normal jersey.  Nothing fancy, nothing intentionally subdued.  Just a good hockey jersey.  Leave the frills for someone else.  Leave the fashion for someone else.  Give me something like this:

    Boom.  Perfect jersey.

       Different strokes...I really like the retro look of the laces.

    I have little interest in the rest of the league's wardrobe choices, and as far as the Bruins go, I have liked all the variations, with the exception of the ill-advised "pooh" jersey.

    Yeah the laces are unnecessary.  If you tie it in a bow you look like a Sally, and if you leave it untied it's probably distracting when you're skating with speed trying to dig a puck out from your feet as it flops around.  I think some of the players just remove it - pretty sure Tuukka does.

    I don't mind the yellow shoulder trim on the B's uniform, but the blue trim on that Russian player looks like circus clown stuff. And the PJ look needs a border at the bottom.

    Reminds me of that series of commercials with Ovechkin's disembodied head in that kid's locker, in a bag - all over the place.

    Add to the list the jerseys with writing - either the city or the team name, often diagonally.  Ottawa did it with "Sens" recently.  Didn't the Coyotes have one like that recently? 

    I'll make a limited exception for the Rangers because I think they've been doing it since forever, but it still looks stupid to me.  Teams have crests for a reason.  If your crest sucks, wrtiting out your team name doesn't suck less.

     

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    I agree.  This is all kinds of lame.  Laces, written name:

    I love everything about the Bruins current blacks except the yellow shoulders. Everything else is stellar - including the outline of the spoked B and the laces. But let's face it, Chicago, Detroit, Rangers (home) and Toronto all have it right...no shoulder patches, but retro-looking stripes on arms, jersey bottoms and socks (Toronto's socks are awesome). That "minimal" trend with other teams is simply looking to mimic these four epic designs:

    The new Phoenix jerseys could be great - just add jersey-bottom white striping, wear black pants instead of maroon, and go nuts with Toronto-style white stripes on the maroon socks. Problem solved.

    I do hate how the "gold" has changed, though. The alternates have the correct gold for my taste:

    For me, the simpler the better. Love the Canadiens,Red Wings jerseys, absolutley loved the Whalers and Nordiques jereseys. Hate the Lightning ones, hard to tell what number it is. And bring back the home whites.

    The B's current home jerseys are infinitely better than the garbage the Bs wore between 95-96 to 06-07. But like asmaha said they need to bring back the proper gold. Home jerseys are ok though the black and gold colours on the shoulder should be reversed. Not a big of the third jersey. The crest just ruins the whole look.

    Okay, so the laces are bad.  How about fake laces?  How about silly plastic stars?  FU Nike.

    I actually didn't mind them they tried them in the OHL every team had them,they kind of grow on you,the NHL only a few teams had them so they just didn't fit in.

    So far, yes.  I'm hoping that national backlash will force a change.

    NAS, you beat me to it. FU nike. the US jerseys are the worst things ever. at what point do the uniforms just become giant onesies? I kinda like the tie ups to be honest with you, and I don't know why, but I love the minnesota alternates. My favorite bruin sweater?

    They Coyotes' jersey has always reminded me of the old Central Red Army ones.  The arm striping mostly.

    I can't stand the striping or the logo, and the fake laces are absolutely idiotic (I don't mind the real laces)

    The stars could have worked if the used actual stitched on white material like the old New York Americans sweaters, but as nit is they look more like something out of the figure skating competition instead of the hockey tournament.

    But before my fellow Canucks start cracking jokes remember this - Nike is designing the Team Canada Sweater too.

    Those Nike jerseys are an abomination. Do they only come in ladies tapered sizes?

    All in fun, Red. You know the difference between normal jerseys and those uber-tapered Alyssa Milano types. A step above pink hats.

    This is hilarious, though:
