Giving Barber Pole a Shot

Recommended Posts

Well in the words of Gordie's signature, "If your Senators concept is not barber pole it sucks." Well I'm am giving it a shot by making a barber pole Senators concepts using the edge template. I made a home and away barber pole uniforms plus 2 alternates that I'm not sure which is better. For the barber pole unis they are mainly just red and black as I kept the gold to the logo and numbers to help make them more readable. As for the number i went with thick outlines also to make them more readable. After experimenting with the colors I found white numbers for the red were the most readable where gold was the most readable for the whites. For a shoulder patch I went with the peace tower alts they have. For the alternates I had two ideas, the first was black jersey with red, white, and gold barber pole up the sides and the other is a more traditional sweater, I went with red sock for both to break up an all black monochrome.

Comments and criticism are wanted. I also want to know which alt you like better.

I like the red and white ones. They are well executed. The only problem is that the white one wouldn't work because it looks too much like a dark jersey. Thats why the Senators should use the barber pole as an alternate

EDIT:

For the alternates, you should use the one without the barber pole because it changes it up a bit. I like the all balck one more anyways, it looks cool, but I would go with black socks on that one

I agree completely. I like the main 2, I was just trying to figure out how it could be redone to be considered a "Light" jersey. Maybe you're right and barberpole should just be an alt *shrugs*

i think the gold numbers on the white are a nice touch. i dont think black would look very good. youve made the barberpole look good. i like the top alternate with the striping on the side panels, it fits best with the entire set. the bottom one would look good with the current set. all in all, nice work.

I've thought of this problem and that's why I left the shoulders the color of the jersey. To help distinguish which on is which. Plus the barber pole style it self would be a tip off to an opponent not to pass the puck to that player.

Wow. These are absolutely amazing. Just, wow. Well done.

Honestly, I like the alts better as a set. The both look really nice, but, I feel as if they should be switched to the home and away ones. (However, since they're both dark, this might not be legal.)

I much prefer the light ones on the regular jerseys. I think the dark ones would look better if the stripes continued to the collar.

I don't know... while I love the barbershop theme, I think it's too busy with the current Sens logo atop it. I think the original "O" or something simpler would work great.

Still looks pretty cool though. Good job on them.

You've done a great job of fitting barberpole onto the Edge template, but I can't say I like it. I don't like the big gap between the stripes on the sleeves and the stripes on the torso. Tge alts look pretty good though, especially the second one.

Good work.

Perhaps for the Barberpoles you should go the olde schoole rugby route and have the name and number in a white square.

That's exactly what I was thinking. At least try it out and see whether or not it looks like shooty shooty fug fug.

Other than that, I love it. It's Discrimesque?

I prefer the first black, with the barberpole sides, far as each alt goes. the "dark" barberpole, I'd keep as home with the small change of yanking Flatman and replacing him with the Badass. For whites, I think a white version of the first alt would work (heh, it could be gold...nobody uses a gold jersey right now except the Preds' mustards...whatever rocks your boat).
