New Blues Jerseys

When do you guys think we will get some new uni's?

If we did what do you think they will look like? Im hoping for something that resembles the originals from '67.

I don't know if they have a contract to wear the ones they have now for a certain period of time though so maybe someone that knows can say.

With how some of the newer jerseys have looked for other teams, I hope NEVER.

Proposition would be the third jersey's as our new jersey and make a white version of it as well.

I would expect the Blues to have new sweaters either this next year or the following.

Teams typically do after getting new ownership...better to re-coup at least some of the cost.

And I would absolutely hate that idea.

I'd just like to see them move the current jerseys towards the old style and get rid of the Reebokness that plagues them now. The curving shoulders and the weird striping sucks. Maybe take the opportunity to tweak them so it doesn't seem like a throwback, but that's about it.

If the Blues simply revert to the jersey prior to the Reebok vertical piping redesign - it will make for a big improvement. Remove the vertical piping and add a horizontal stripe to the bottom.

Saw this concept on the main board, would absolutely love this:

Yep, that's what I'd like too. It's just a modernized tribute to the originals. No Red!

I'd prefer to make the third jersey our primary and a version as our away. This concept is killer.



Then we can introduce this as our new third, which could become our primaries in a couple years, maybe around '13-14.



I also wouldn't mind if that just became our primaries immediately and a white version became our aways with our current third staying a third jersey. I think our more classic looking sweaters look better without any navy in them.

I really hope the 3rd jersey or any variation of the 3rd never becomes one of the main jerseys. It is a good 3rd, but that's all it is.

I basically agree. I love the thirds, but as a standard jersey, I prefer the big bluenote crest.

I'd be interested to see a lighter blue body with darker blue in the note and bands. Not full-on baby blue, but lighter than they've been using. A bit closer to the classic color.

No offense Celtic, but I don't think you're going to come up with anything better than that concept one. Of course, that's just my opinion.

I think that would be cool. I always dug the classic baby blue jerseys.

No offense taken. I wasn't trying to out do anyone, just provide some discussion points.

Which concept one are you talking about? I like all of the ones on this page.

Can we bring this back? I was looking at my Blues jersey thing I have on my wall, showing our jerseys from the last 45 years.

Replace our home/away with these.

As do I, there are some classy designs in here. I was referring to the ones Guy posted. The only possible improvement to those could be to remove the shoulder yoke. Can anyone try to make those up?

The *problem* (if you can call it that) with our thirds is that the Blues really don't need an alternate logo. The bluenote is as iconic and identifiable as the best logos in professional sports. An alternate logo merely waters down the brand.

I agree with the poster who said the current thirds (and similar concepts) should remain thirds. I think the third's style, use of blue, and circular logo will end up being regarded as a fad in years to come (see also: Pittsburgh, Florida, Columbubs, Minnesota, et al). 10-15 years ago, the fad was slanted stripes and colors that didn't belong (black for most teams, red for the Blues).

The only case in which I would like the current thirds moved to regular home is if the white thirds posted above were adopted as our away jerseys and a "throwback" similar to what's posted below as our third.

Took a crack at it, but don't know what to think.

Between the original 6 teams and the majority of the class of 67, those jerseys should stay to the traditional look as much as possible. I just really hope we don't get some crazy person try to make the team where gold or yellow jerseys like Nashville has. Gold jerseys never work.

I wouldn't say that...Boston's and Pittsburgh's "gold" jerseys were great. Though we should always have blue jerseys.
