Pittsburgh Penguins Alternate Jersey Concept

Recommended Posts

Hi all. This is my first concept so c/c is very welcome.

I went for a classic, clean looking jersey because I love the old fashioned kind of look. However I used the newer "Vegas Gold" to try to modernize it and keep the Penguin identity unique.

vegas gold and white have a tendency to blend together at distance. they're too similar. Creates a smudged effect. Though it has been done in varying amounts, I think the Penguins' numbers, which have been unchanged since they were on the 2000 3rd jersey, demonstrates that perfectly. White and gold never touch, and they're always highly legible because of it.

I think eliminating white altogether, except for in the logo and numbers, would look pretty sharp. Use white the way the Wild use red in their new white sweaters.

It's good, but I think there might be some better ideas in this same vein.

Oh, and this might or might not bother anybody, but I just realized you have the same look as the Leafs but in black and gold. Between Tampa Bay and Carolina, they're a bit sensitive about their jersey patterns recently lol

Yeah I actually love both the Leafs and the Carolina jerseys. I really like your point about eliminating white. I was also thinking about using various stripe widths as well all being Vegas gold. Also the comment about the Wild jerseys makes a lot of sense too. So to recap you mentioned my 3 favorite jerseys in the NHL haha (Wild away, Leafs, Carolina)

Have to say I liked the original better, this just looks like one of those jerseys that you can buy at Walmart or Target. White needs to make a comeback in the outer stripes, and the vegas yoke has to go, then it should look better.

I say bring back some white, just don't let the white and gold touch and you should be good! Right now there are 2 issues I see with the jersey: 1. Striping is all over the place, you nailed it on the first one with the stripes- maybe go back to that but separate the gold and white? 2. Looks like a Drake inspired OVO jersey, not the first thing I'd want a hockey jersey to remind me of.

Love that. Looks way better than what they have, not a fan of the triangles. Very classical look you have here. The updated stripes are perfect, pitt should use this.

Thanks for all the feedback guys I'm currently working on this Alt and another white Pens alt just for :censored:s and giggles. I'll be doing other NHL teams soon!

I find myself agreeing with Jake.

It almost seems a little dull without the white.

Maybe put some gold up in the collar and make the yokes black.

You could also put a touch of gold back up on the shoulders with a shoulder patch.

Good first effort, Toast.

Yeah I had two shoulder patch ideas one was the Robo Penguins logo used in the pre edge jerseys, vxHcY7H.gif

Or the shield of the city of Pittsburgh with the yellow changed to vegas.

Thoughts?

Simple and clean - don't clutter it up with a bunch of other stuff. Nice touch with the city logo on the shoulders.

Great job "toast"!

Nice but I could go without the shoulder patch. The blue just isn't working for me.
