Holland Hockey Jersey: Equipment Problem

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've been making a few IIHF (random countries pretty much) and decided to do the Netherlands, aka Holland. Well I took inspiration from their other sport teams and used only orange and white. With that comes a major problem, the equipment.

Orange: The pants, gloves and helmet would be way too bright, especially with the orange jersey.

Black: Though the contrast would contrast would work, the jerseys have no black in them.

Now the other sports teams wear white pants to balance the jersey, but white pants with a hockey jersey look horrible!

These are the jerseys that I plan to use with the concept are below, thanks for all the help!

I would just say add black trim to the jersey, allowing you to make other back equipment.

That, or just try white. Black or White.

I would lay the two stripes (on the sleve and chest) and the logo on top of a thicker black one similar to the bottom of the black hawks jersey, and then use blac. Equipment.

it wouldn't be the first national team to use black

Hi Jake.

You could try the Philly Flyer Formula...

Black pants, black gloves, black outline around numbers, throw some black into the crest...

Leave the striping orange and white...

Might be a solution.

I'm an execution goon. Sorry that I won't have a suggestion for your problem. You have the 2 middle stripes going down the chest, and you have it going to the back of the jersey a tad. On the front view of both, you try to show that small back part, but it should be on the right side, not left.

Would it really look out of place to have an all black helmet and all black shorts and then socks to match the jerseys? (white helmet on the away)

I am definitely no hockey aesthetic but going the complete other direction may work - and if not is worth a try I guess.

If you're taking colour inspiration from other Dutch national sides, the football team have used black as a trim and as the main colour on shorts on many occasions over the years. I think it's a nice combination, personally.
