After sleeping on it, my biggest gripe other than the Bruins socks is still the collars, but specifically the laceup ones. The plain collar can work well if used correctly, but the way they just slapped the laces on looks like an afterthought and that they didn't want to have them, so they just put them on top of everything else to satisfy those who did.
I'm in the air on the actual cut of the jerseys. They pretty much have a standard cut and it reminds me a lot of the old, pre-edge one where you basically had a choice of rounded edge yokes or square at the shoulder stitching. All of these jerseys have the same actual cut. The strange part is the teams that required a rounded yoke have a Nike-esque wedge there to make up the difference, while still having the squared of shoulders. Just seems like an interesting choice that makes me wonder if there is any real benefit (manufacturing perhaps?) in doing it this way compared to how the edge system did it.
I'm hoping with more time and exposure the issues will lessen, and pray that some changes happen sooner rather than later. Coming back to the Bruins socks, i actually was expecting them to go back to the old gold socks with the white stripe outlined in black. looks like they went the other way. Still don't like it.
