I don't think I've ever seen them before. It would look weird I think... Anyone ever seen them offered?

I've seen them...think it was a Euro team. You can get some, sorta. I know it is possible to order white shells to go over your pants.

These guys have the best collection of shells I've seen. Want the camo but $59 is a bit steep and yes they have white. Here you go:http://www.24hrhockey.com/Product.aspx?cid=116&pid=605#

The Washington Capitals started their first season with them but ditched them half way through due to constant ridicule

We used White shells my first year on our highschool team (2000-2001 season). They actually complemented ours.. but then we switched to a golden that was ugly... then we went to black with white and gold jerseys... that was disgusting.. Then we went to dark blue with gold and white jerseys... not good, then my final year we figured it out, dark blue with blue and gold jerseys and white socks

Sounds like the highschool had some serious money to throw around.

those looks sweet to me. adds some more character to the already sad and pathetic trends of hockey uniforms. "black, black, black, red, blue, purple, black, more black, navy blue".

if people are scared of color, culture did a number on you.

Finnish SML-team TPS used to have an allwhite outfit, white socks, white pants, white jerseys, white gloves, white helmets. That was way back in the day, in the 80's, I think.

Somehow it just does'nt feel right.

Edit: Found a link, really bad quality, though.

Like it's been said, I've only seen them in shells. Not much demand for white, soon to be yellow pants.

Even with the "really bad quality" warning, I expected better quality than that. Talk about understatement.

White is a really bad color for hockey pants, unless you enjoy looking like you have zero bladder control(I guess if you actually do have zero bladder control, then maybe white pants are the answer, because people think "they just stain that way")
