The striping is essentially KC Scouts striping...but it's a good looking jersey. The added detail to the buffalo is a cool touch.

 

It’s not seen very often these days, but that was a fairly common stripe style back then.

 

The thinking behind it here is that it’s an extension of the stripes from the 40th jersey (the four gold stripes representing four decades), with the blue stripe added to not only represent the fifth decade, but also to call back to the Sabres’ traditional gold/blue/gold stripes from their classic white jerseys.

 

Essentially A plus B (but with the sleeves matching the hem):

That's a beautiful jersey, perfect use of the glittery gold. It would look even better if they removed the ugly motion lines from around the buffalo. They're poorly-rendered and absolutely pointless in what is otherwise a pretty graceful logo.

It does. I'm thinking the new uniforms could just simply be this with navy/gold replaced swapped for traditional royal blue/yellow.

When this jersey was leaked month ago, I hated it. Now they officially unveiled it, I found out that jersey is actually beautiful. Love the detailed buffalo and glittery gold really suits with navy.

I hope they keep the detailed buffalo when they brought the royal blue back.

There has NEVER been a white Sabres jersey without a shoulder yoke in (duh) fifty years, so it looks very empty without one. Other than that, it's fine and yay gold for 50 blah blah blah. Let's hear more about this total royal blue!

I think it's just detailed fur,  not motion lines.

I don’t blame you, but you must have erased 2006-2010 from your memory. 🙂

(That's what I get for not double checking sportslogos.net before making a uniform declaration.)
