Calgary Flames Go Retro For New Alternate Uniform

Recommended Posts

I like it but the C feels just a bit too low.

Love it.  This may be the best individual jersey in the NHL right now.  These colors (like Honlulu blue/silver, kelly/silver, and a whole lotta other schemes) does not need black and looks better without it.

 

I hope this stuff sells really really and they go to the 1980s look full time and have black trim on a third.

I think the height of the C is just an illusion.

The only thing that bugs me about this jersey is the different proportions between the arm stripes and the hem. Decide on one already.

The Flames’ colors look better with black trim. The colors bleed together too much without it.

Good for them. IMO, I think it'll be only a matter of time before this becomes their permanent uniform.

Eh, I beg to differ. Sure it may help it pop a bit better with black, but it's not necessary. I think red, gold and white work well together.

I agree. For a team called the Flames, the white, gold and red bleeding together have a bright, fiery effect, which is perfect. Black tones it down, more like ash, embers, or charcoal. I say save the black for a third. Let your home and road be about the Flames, and the third can be used to say something else.

Always loved the Flames originals. With quite a few red and black teams, the Flames own red and yellow-gold. Time to bring back their original set as the permanent primary while the 2004 black Flaming C uniform could be used as a future alternate.
