No arm stripes, that's a minor revolution.

Not quite that long, these were sported in the 1980 Olympics for one thing. And personally I love this style.

No problem! If you're wondering about turnaround time, I ordered my Pietrangelo last Friday and it should be ready by Monday at the latest.

Yep it's a beaut. I even like the removal of the arm stripes, it makes the uniform as a whole look more clean and iconic.

I also don't like the 2nd one. The leaf is too big, the whole is too plain and too 70ish.

It all comes down to taste. Aside from the "laces" on these jerseys, I think they're all very nice, and I think a lot of the ones being shown as good examples of old jerseys are awful. It's almost entirely subjective.

Most of the uniforms actually look good; especially from a wide angle.

I think Canada, especially the red uniform, is by far the worst in the tournament.

I could be wrong, but I think it's because white and green are the traditional colours of Ljubljana and being the capital city, green has found its way into the colours of the national teams for hockey and soccer.

I'm not sure why green specifically. But I had read somewhere that because Yugoslavia wore red and blue at the Olympics, the Slovenian Olympic Committee decided when Yugoslavia dissolved that they wanted a new identity. They did not want to be seen as the successor to Yugoslavia for political reasons. Thus, the different colours.

Being that this was decided in the early 90s, neon colours were all the rage. For instance the WLAF's Orlando Thunder wore neon green uniforms during their existence. So it may have been a sign of the times, I am slightly surprised they didn't wear teal. But it very well could be due to more than simply what was in at the time.

I really didn't like that blue stripe across the Czech chest. Looked out of balance and out of balance.

This is the second post I've seen you say something about the Nike logo. You realize this is standard operating procedure for every piece of sporting equipment in the last 30 years right?

I mean all things considered it's really not bad.

Neon colours on the jerseys are a recent invention and has nothing to do with the 90s. Dont know who invented it and decided to put it on the jerseys and whats got to do with the national symbolism but I dont recall a single national team or an individual athlete jersey from Slovenia that had that neon green.. lets say before 2010.

I think they just picked the colour from the most recent marketing stunt of the Slovenian Tourism Board:


The Slovenian Basketball Association then came up with this:


And eventually, for 2013, they came up with this (they're the only national team that has used green as a primary or secondary colour since the independence and the only one next to the volleyball team who started using neon green as primary/secondary colour, also picked up in 2013 - its kind of sad really that a commercial determines the colours of the national team jerseys):

That was the official "argument" of the Slovenian Olympic Committee In reality, the Slovenian ice hockey team continued the tradition of the white, blue and red jerseys that represented Yugoslavian ice hockey team before the breakup of the country. The reason was because most Yugoslav ice hockey players were from Slovenia (56 out of 60 Yugoslav ice hockey Olympians were ethnic Slovenians). Good old days when tradition and history mattered I guess

Using only national colours and keeping up with the tradition:
