Columbus Blue Jackets

Recommended Posts

When I think about sports in Ohio, I think of tradition. Ohio State, the Browns, the Indians, and the Cavs (not too recently) have all had some of the most timeless uniforms of all time. However, one team stands out - the Blue Jackets. Granted the Blue Jackets are a 2000 expansion team, but I just think they can do so much more with their uniforms and identity. This is a team named after the Civil War, so why not have some neo-traditional uniforms?

The primary logo is taken from their alternate jersey. Personally I think its one of the best logos in the NHL.

The secondary is the current secondary, recolored.

The third is a play of the Cleveland Barons logo. Shows respect to the only other NHL team from Ohio.

Not a huge fan of the two primary uniforms, but I can dig the alternate. Especially the TV numbers. Maybe switch the back numbers to white with a beige outline on the third?

It all looks good but some execution issues;

Socks striping is too high

Logos are too big

No TV numbers

Add a bit of white onto the home to match the road

Other than these, this is a very good concept!

I feel like this would really benefit from adding another colour. The Navy and Vintage White combo is a little on the dull side. That being said I like the idea of going the traditional route and the road and alternate jerseys look nice.

This is good. I mean, really good. However, you have to refine. The C outline looks kid of sloppy and the stars aren't evenly spaced on the C. Other than that, it's really nice. Keep up the good work!:)

I don't love that the old white on this. Even if it's my avatar. The old white works as an alt, but not for a regular set of jerseys. And some red would be good too.

I came up with four color options. Adding white seemed to be the consensus, so all of them incorporate it. I'm leaning towards #3.

I don't think the blue and tan is sporty enough. It needs to look a little athletic and sporty. I like the red white and blue logo the best.

I like the current blue jackets uniforms. But what you've done here is alright with me. I would also suggest adding a bit of red or white.

I just saw those 4 color schemes you came up with. #3 IS DEFINITELY THE WINNER. 4 looks to Preds IMO

I really like these a lot. I know a couple of responses have suggested they're bland, but I think bland and classic get mixed in together occasionally. Would you rather have the Red Wings uniforms or the original Ducks?

I don't think we need to be afraid to accept Classic looking jerseys. Look at all the garbage the NBA is putting out now! Would you rather have an updated Hawks '80's uniform set, or this lime green, red and black monstrosity with the half finished "firebird" logo that they've just patented?

I say 3 as well, I agree 4 looks to preds like. The RWB I find isn't as viable since the Rangers are in the division.

I updated both the home and away sets with the new color scheme. I incorporated more white in the home to make it fit better with the away. Let me know what you think

Maybe try incorporating the Blue Jackets lighter shade of blue in addition to the navy. Simply loved the color combo on the original.

The away could use more blue, it looks like white and blue are reversed and I actually would mind seeing a thin maroon accent...

I disagree because of the theme of the team...the blue and sepia-like tone work perfectly for a Civil War theme.

As a Civil War buff, I love everything...the logos especially. Incredible work!
