I get the striping and patching. It's the coloring. Would Dallas look odd with red homes? Or Detroit with white/green aways? What color are we?

Red is one of the Wild's colors, it's in the Bear-cat, it's in the lettering on the green... don't see why you hate red.

Dallas doesn't have red as a color, and Detroit doesn't have green as a color. Situations simply don't compare.

All this talk of these jerseys and "identity" is making my friggin head spin.


None of this would be a problem if we didn't have that bloody team name.


Thank you, Matt Majka.

The name is not causing identity problems. The possible white away looks like a good compliment to the reds and the teams colors are red, green, wheat and white.
Seems to me that any "identity" issues are individual issues.

pls no! it's awful. Shoulders must have a clean appearance. The "suspected" jersey is ok, but i think they are going to insert more red somewhere. Maybe the numbers again, or between the stripes. Hope not.

I'm trying to imagine this in my head and the jerseys turn out ugly every time. So yep, let's hope not.

How many times are you gonna come on here and complain about the name? Good grief, find something else to complain about.

Not really a big fan of the circle logo though.

I had a big long post typed up, but I'm just going to replace it with an Antoine de Saint-Exupery quote:

"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

Look at the teams with enduring jerseys (MTL, DET, CHI, NJD, etc.) and it's pretty obvious.

The new away jersey sounds like an improvement on the template front but there's still work to do on the logo/identity side. Circle is just unnecessary detail IMO.

Wouldnt mind the current home jersey just being revised, with less of a christmas look and something on the bottom. I don't mind red as our main color. Just dont like the christmas look.

I like the away jerseys green with the circle logo like pictured. Wouldn't mind that as our jersey at all. Pretty cool.

my guess is that if the circle logo is indeed there most people will hate this jersey for some reason or another. personally i'd love to see a very classic, clean look.

So it looks like the collar + possibly the shoulders will be green. With a hint of red.

Meh.

With that teaser, I see it turning out something like the away jersey on here, with no yellow stripes

Yeah, those mock ups directly above my post are super cool. I would buy one of each, but especially the home version!

Two-tone collar is... interesting. We'll see how it's executed.

Ok this might just be me but doesn't that green extend too far down below the collar for it to just be the shoulder color? It seems like they've got something different in the works...
