Which era of Blues uniforms is your favorite and what would you like to see next?

NHLUniforms.com has a detailed history of Blues uniforms HERE.

Personally, I love the set we had from '87-'89. They've got the classic stripes, the less cartoony blue note, and a good amount of red for accent while still relying mainly on blue and gold. I know the red isn't popular with everybody but I'm a fan. I'd like our next set to go back in that direction a little bit though I do like the ones we have now even if I am a tad bit bored with them at this point.

What do you guys think?

The 1979 thru 1984 uniform is my favorite.

Then Harry Ornest's Wife added the awful "BLUES", shrank the bluenote ( and put St. Louis on it ) and added red alsoto the Jersey

my 2nd choice is the Blues current 3rd jersey with the Arch , Very sharp.

I think the arching "BLUES" on those sweaters is awful, the worst thing to ever end up on the ice for us and that includes the diagonal stripes from '95-'98.

Yeah, our current thirds are pretty great though I'm finding myself getting bored with them quicker than I thought I would.

I think you'd like these two concepts from icethetics (they're my two favorites):

I LOVE those ones (minus the lettering/numbering, I'd like it better if they used the same ones we have now). The only problem is that if we used those, they would have to be our away jerseys because they are white. If they were our away jerseys, our current thirds would probably have to become our home jerseys (to match) and I don't think our current thirds are classic enough to be our primary home jerseys. Just my opinion though.

I like the ones prior to '79, before the dark uniforms had shoulder stripes. I'm okay with those stripes, and they look great on the white uniforms, but I like the dark ones a bit better without.

I'm also partial to the 87-94 range. I would love to see an updated version without red and with the current Bluenote.

One thing that the uniforms have done right since 1998 is that they use two shades of blue. An older style jersey, perhaps in the tradition of the 87-94 design, but with both very dark blue and light blue, could be outstanding.

Really like the new dark away jerseys. Second choice is the late 60s version. Old school....

I like the '68-'73 era (I'm only 37). I bought a Gasoff sweater last year an love the color scheme...it would be a great change to look to the past as with the new TV spots.

There's pictures online of the ones I'd like to see but it goes back to the lighter blue color similar to that winter classic one pictured above. Also really dig those white ones above

Since I don't have a computer, if someone doesn't mind, send me your e-mail address and I'll send an NHL 13 pic of what I'd like to see.

Right? LOL

It was the only way I could get an away picture without playing.

Those are pretty chill Carvin. I'd probably do something different with the shoulders though.

Just SO different, yet classy. Would be a great piece of Blues history to put on my wall.

Voted 1998-2007.

I am a fan of the 79-84 jerseys myself.


Did they only make one of those trumpet jerseys? I'm not going to lie, if there are multiples out there, I want one for my man cave. Heck, get enough scotch in me and I'd probably wear one to a game.

Voted 77-79. I like the strips much better but I like the 90's blue a lot more.

Those are my favorite, but I forgot the year. I know they're pretty recent and were used just before Reebok got the contract for the NHL IIRC.

That's 98-07.

Myself, I like the 79-84 jerseys and really dislike the current home and away ones (3rd is fine). Imo they should be changed to something like the ones Calvin made.

I voted for the 77-79 jerseys. Although I would not mind anything up til 1984. The dark blue never did it for me. Also, I cant believe anyone could vote for any jersey with red in it. just awful, plus any jersey with the words Blues on the front. Horrible! Go back to the lighter Blue, it is more original and unique.

The 98-07 white jersey and present third jersey are my favorite light and dark options.
