New Team Canada Jerseys

Recommended Posts

I was about to post these. Three things, the Maple Leafs style stripes are ugly, the black outlines on the white jerseys stripes are both ugly and unnecessary and the presentation showed the red jerseys paired with the white striped socks from the previous set, I certainly hope it's an error.

Overall they're okay but I think the stripes on the reds should have been white. There's not enough white on that uniform to make it balanced. The breezerz are going to be black, the shoulders are black, the helmets are black, the stripes should be white.

 

Hell, the only way they could make that uniform look balanced for the graphic is by having it be a goalie with mostly white gear.

Yeah I don't think I like these. The red jerseys lack white, the white jerseys have a weird colour imbalance with the black shoulders and red stripes, the black outline on those red stripes is weird, and they have the same dumb striping as the Maple Leafs. What was wrong with the 2010 Olympic jerseys? They could've kept those forever, instead of this modern/retro simplistic yet overly complicated thing they got going on here.

I'm very disappointed in this set. I've been hoping for a long time that Canada would ditch the bfbs and just go with red and white, but in this case they went the other way. I don't mind the template or the sublimated maple leaves, but all of the black ruins it for me.

It's an error. The mannequin was wearing red socks with black stripes:

The 2002 uniforms were absolutely perfect...

I would really like some red trim at the bottom of the yoke on the white jersey, but I don't mind these.

Awful, there should not be black in a Canada jersey, only red and white.

Who the hell came up with the idea of adding a 3rd color ?

I don't think there are any other nation, that have a color in their uniform that is not found in their flag ?

But I understand your point. A red and white set would look great for Canada! No black necessary.

Hmm, wonder why they use that green color, can't really find info on google LOL

And of course Italy in blue when it should be red green white, can´t find out why

Anyone know about these 2 teams/nations ?

They could've slapped the skating leaf logo on these and called it a day. As much hate as these got, I think these are miles ahead of what they just released.

See, I really didn't like these because the black shoulders seemed so random. They're not connected to anything else on the jersey, just the equipment. It's just slapped on. These new ones try to fix that by integrating black (or charcoal gray? It all looks a bit light) into the jerseys, and the reds do it well (better than the red/white jerseys? Meh) and the whites do it, but still look goofy. I think they're one of the better recent sets, and certainly is no reason to be really upset...unless the jersey color is charcoal gray and the logo is still black, then that's pretty stupid.

Italy has been wearing blue since before it was a republic. Blue was the color of the a royal house at the time and they have just kept the tradition going.

Yup... Here's Italy's flag from the Kingdom of Italy, the flag which was officially adopted in 1861, and lasted until 1946.

The seal in the middle is one of the royal family's seals...

Slovenia wears green in soccer too.

 

I know there was a post about why they do ages ago, but it would take a while to dig for it.

Their jerseys get worse with every release.  Never should have deviated from the 2002 design.

Red jersey is OK. But on the whites, the thin black lines on the striping really cheapens the look.

This is not that.  They had black in their jerseys almost 100 years ago.  It's part of their "identity".
