  1. Why change the pants to add white between orange and blue when you've removed them from the Jersey striping? You just inverted the problem. The old white pants would seem to be a better fit. Especially when you have no sock stripe to work with. The home set works well here, but the triple orange stripes on white doesn't have the same boldness as the old away stripe. And I have the same issue with the away pants as above. I see no reason for doing o/w/o striping on blue when there's no other instances of it anywhere else on either set. Back to the Colts, I think what they have is in a weird spot, the helmet with its single blue stripe only matches the home Jersey and nothing else. Changing it to a double stripe then raises an issue with the home; do you consider a color flip (double blue on white>double white on blue) to be matching? Should they make their shoulder striping a single white stripe, technically b/w/b in the context of the original helmet/home Jersey? Personally, I think a single white stripe on the shoulder feels too petite looking in it's current placement. I would advocate for a triple white shoulder stripe. It would feel more bold visually and still reads as a double blue stripe in the negative space. I really liked Michigan's bumble bee striping jerseys Adidas made several years back and I think the Colts having a triple striped blue jersey could have a similar feel to them.

    The most Ironic thing about the adidas site leaking the jerseys early is that it took them a month after the winter classic uni unveiling to put them for sale on the site. I literally looked every day so I could pick up a WC Blackhawks Jersey.

    Maybe so for the green and blue Canucks. However, for Pittsburgh and St.Louis white definitely isn't necessary in that regard. I would say the contrast for the rangers red and blue is similar to Vancouver's, yet the use of white there doesn't do anything to help alleviate that issue. Otherwise, I still think the buffalo crest should be either flipped to yellow, with no outline, for the sake of visibility.

    I'd like to see all white dropped from teams whose color schemes have a tertiary color available. Maybe take a look at adjusting the values of teams whose colors may not have a great contrast as is. I also think Buffalo would benefit from inverting the crest and being yellow with no keyline instead of navy with a thin keyline.

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    I've always heard that Seattle is the Brooklyn of the Pacific Northwest, I think you might be on to something here.

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    I think that this guy's tweet is Just an attempt to be the first to "break" a story. I cant imagine the team already has it's uniform design and colors locked down when they haven't even announced a name yet. They just got approved for a team ffs. I've got my own prediction. pay close attention to the 2 guys behind the kid with the jerseys' shirts and ties. Told Seattle's team colors are going to be navy and powder blue!

    But then what would the New York Statue of Liberties use for their logo?

    All the angry replies on the Instagram post seem to indicate these may just be some odd nhl19 cross promotion, not physical uniforms to be worn this season. I wonder if that's actually the case.

    Why wouldn't the shadow be on both swords? If you take the gold on the blades as shading, the logo is "lit" from top down/center, so they both would be affected by the shadow cast by the star. If anything the star itself is what is shaded inconsistently.

    Your're right, I just looked over the press release shots and in one closeup the primeknit is still there. It may be the most subtle coloring of the primeknit I've seen. It usually stands out to me more, even on the whites.

    I believe it's just the current techfit template minus the primeknit pattern. It has basically the same construction; as seen below, the armpit stripe looking area is also present on the Texas a&m Jersey.

    It may just be the resolution of the image, or an out of place stitch, but the star in that logo does seem to have a lightning bolt looking shape on the bottom left point. So while it isn't major, it does at least make a subtle reference to the host team. Unless, it is in fact some sort of error in the logo's reproduction.

    It looks like the Oilers logo is extruded in 3d; That sliver of silver you're seeing is a bit of shading from the inset area of the oil drop before it reaches the orange drop itself. You can also see a bit of the effect on the bottom right of the letter s in the oilers portion.

    I find it very odd that the Fanatics produced replica has Adidas branding on the inner collar. Is that some sort of odd mix up or is Adidas getting a cut of the Fanatics replicas? In my mind Fanatics is a competitor of Adidas now that they've entered into the licensed sports business. It's tantamount to Adidas making stuff with the swoosh on it.

    My guess is that the helmets aren't reconditioned as often as those we see from college football teams in the United States. Probably a few years worth of wear and year on those bad boys.
