It's better than their other outdoor jerseys, and that's about as far as I'm willing to go on it. That neck, though. Woof.

I might be a minority but I prefer those over their WC sweater in Philly. 

 

That one was the worst Winter Classic jersey out of the 20 we've seen. Worse than the Blackhawks two "Here's our road jersey, but slightly different" attempts.

 

The texture/material obsessive in me loves that the "N.Y." on the chest patch is chain-stitched. And the wordmark on the front appears to be a two-layer white-on-white treatment, which  probably means two different materials in use there.

 

I'm not buying this jersey, but it's... okay. Outside of the neck, it's fine.

I was able to grab this photo off the 'Chel shop webpage. Don't know if they've realized their mistake and taken it down yet.

So, why did you bother faking this? This was never up on NHL shop.

He was having a laugh.  

 

Cruel, because his concept was so much better than the actual ones.

That collar.  And the stupid phantom yoke stripes.   Ugh.

Seriously, take away everything from up top (patch, collar, stripes) and you have a simple, classy jersey that even I would have a hard time not buying.

 

But the road yoke doesn't work on the homes, makes it all too busy. Like all adidas collars so far, the collar is obnoxious in a contrasting collar. While the patch is nicely constructed with the chain stitching and felt, it just adds to the clutter on the top of the jersey. Doesn't let the "Rangers" script breathe.

 

Aside from the neck pentagon of the current jerseys, the "leak" is better than the real thing.

I just noticed that, even with the new jersey cut and the lettering no longer in italics, adidas still can't figure out how to center the Rangers' wordmark on the front of a jersey.

the shoulder striping matches the striping on the pants. It looks balanced when it's a full uniform shown. Shocked nobody has posted the full uniform yet.

I like the shoulder yoke stripes but the collar just ruins it...  Seems to be a running theme with Adidas uniforms.

Not a fashion company. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

That video was so unrealistic, too. Everyone knows the little brother has pillows duct taped around his legs and put into the net when the older brother and his friends want to play street hockey.

Fake?

 

Fake?!

 

A thousand curses upon your head, for deceiving us with this trickery. Mostly because I loved your concept so much. ?

 

Did you get the name/stripe treatment from the caps?  

 

The only improvement I could see to your design would be to elevate the hem stripe a little bit, let some blue show at the hem. Like their alt:

I’ve never liked how the Rangers’ white stripe goes all the way to the hem. 

 

But well played, sir.  Well played. 

 

Using the wrong lettering on the front was the giveaway. :-)

The white crew neck is straight from the original jersey:

If it was a real crew neck like the past couple of winter classics with Reebok used, it'd be a lot better.
