Do not want.

The stripes/coloured bands/whatever you wanna call em' on the arms and on the bottom just ruin then IMO.

Plus our current 2011 Winter Classic jerseys already have that stripe-y design. No need to repeat...

if i could photoshop i'd try to show you what i'd change but ill just try to explain it.

I would reduce the area covered by the gold stripes and make it like just one thicker gold stripe that covers much less area. I think the parts on the socks and arms cover too much and make it look weird but I do like the idea of a simpler concept with less angled lines like the current ones. I think the bolts hit the nail on the head with their current jersey. Simpler is better.

Black one is sexy IMO, but the white looks terrible.

I would reduce the stripes on the dark ones for sure.

The white diagonal is not that bad, the other one is horrible. I would love to have the diagonal Pittsburgh back.

I really liked this one on the right, (the logo was okay, too).

The new ones on icethetics look good - but not that awful circle logo ..

I revised the concept jerseys posted above based off some of the reader feedback. I didn't think that the jersey would look great in the old yellow, but I was wrong, it looks incredible.

I also reduced the number of stripes to 3, and removed the laces from the Home sweater.



Improved?

The first rule of any new jersey has to be to ditch vegas gold for the old school yellow circa '90-'91. The second rule of any new jersey has to be to go back to the '90-'91 set. Black with diagonal PITTSBURGH (from '93) as the third.

Much.

These are actually pretty good, I really think the Penguins should go back to the classic yellow as well.

Vegas Gold is okay, but the classic yellow they used for years just looks better with black and white.

yellow and white right next to eachother is never appealing to the eye.. i'd make those little white stripes between the yellow stripes black on the home sweater

I am apparently in the minority but I would rather we stick with Vegas gold. I absolutely love our current jersey.

Disagree on the diagonal city name, I think it looks like terrible. The Rangers have my least favorite jerseys in the league and I hated when we went with that look on our road unis.

I really like these. The change that really does it for me is the removal of a few of the stripes. I said when I first saw the 2011 WC jerseys that they would be beautiful if they had one or two stripes removed. The one thing I might change is to ditch the circular logo. For the standard home and away, use the skating penguin. Then for the alternate, whether it be white or black, use the diagonal Pittsburgh text.

I'm with you. I like the vegas gold more, but I think the jersey template could be improved.

This.

I'm not a fan of the circular logo myself. I'd much rather see our current logo.

The more I look at these, the more I like the left and center. I could live with them.

that shade of yellow is way brighter than the black and yellow we had in the 90's. Either way I hope we keep vegas gold.

Want.

Seriously, don't they pay people to do designs? Who came up with the Vegas Gold idea anyway? Wasn't it just a third jersey coloring back in 2000 anyway? Why we decided to run with it instead of tradition, I'll never know...


I want the friggin' yellow back...

These jerseys rule. I wasn't a big fan of the diagonal Pittsburgh one from the 90's, but I love your version. Submit to Penguins organization please.

we don't look like Boston now. And personally I think Vegas Gold looks better.
