Washington Capitals Concept - DC flag + Weagle - NEW UPDATE

Recommended Posts

There has been a lot of talk about the Capitals recently, especially involving the Weagle logo and promoting it. It seems so natural to put the stars above the logo, it kinda balances out the logo, and I decided to take the extra step and integrate the DC flag (at least on the white, it's the reverse on the red, which is also used in certain logos in downtown Washington). The shoulders are a hallmark of the original sweaters, and the rest is meant to be a mix of modern and traditional.

C&C?

Idk if that fixes it either. I'm about ready to put a box interrupting the stripes so the numbers are untouched, a la the Canadiens barberpole

The chest area looks gorgeous with the seamless combination of the logo, stripes and stars. It's a bold look that makes a tired colour scheme look fresh and unique. My only gripe is that the rounded shoulder yokes don't really fit with the rest of the uniform. I think if you removed them, the uniform would be more clean and balanced.

Yea the white yokes are a bit much on what is a busy but promising design.

I'd go one step further and mock up some color variations from the screaming eagle set.

I think I agree on the shoulder yokes. Try without them and see how it looks. Also think it might not look horrible if you did stop the stripes at the side panel stitching on the back so you won't have issues with the numbers.

It is a really small detail, but on the front of the sweater, the bottom stripe cuts through the Capitol building. This makes it look like some other shape--I'm not thinking Capitol when I see it. I would suggest erasing the stripe inside the weagle. It would be a very subtle change, but one that will really help the design.

I've always been a huge fan of shoulder yokes, so originally I thought that the rounded yokes were the problem

Which is, admittedly, better.

But I figured I had better go the full nine yards and go sans-yokes.

And I kept thinking that it's unbalanced now and needs shoulder logos, but everything I tried was a downgrade and this look is really starting to grow on me.

So, with issues fixed, what do you think?

I like the square yoke better than the round. My initial thoughts right now or that you should keep the square yoke on the road jersey and keep it off on the home. The road needs more red.

A shoulder logo could make a big difference too. But definitely not the wordmark. I'd like to see a form of the capital building logos. I've seen some good concepts of that

Also, I'd have the chest stripe end at the side panel stitching on the back on both jerseys to keep that consistent and cleaner.

Both of them look better without the yokes. As far as the secondary logos go, the ones on the left would fit perfectly.

I think that's a wrap. Or at least it's the last of the tinkering until there's more suggestions. The entire process has been laid out here, now is the question of what works best. I also added a third, a fauxback featuring the secondary logo and taking the best of their original sweaters but fixing a lot of it (too many stars, sleeve stripes moved up from the cuff so the gloves don't cover them and enlarged, etc)

Removing the white outline on the Weagle would make the red jersey look much better.

Disagree. The white outline creates enough separation between the stripes and the logo. This is a winning concept HW.

I disagree with your disagreement. The white outline makes the white stripe look like it extend down farther than it actually does. That just looks wrong to me.

Really nice work as usual, the updates you made were great, also can I get the template please?

Maybe you could try a red logo outline on the red jersey. I like how the outline is the jersey color on the away jersey, separating the striping from the logo.

Hockey week, this looks terrific.

However, a minor error is killing me. The red jersey in your last is missing the yoke and shoulder entirely. This is also on the alternate too... (The grey outlines on the white jersey I mean).
