There's been some talk on the main board about our black jerseys. I personally don't mind them, but I wouldn't buy one... I've always thought that the obvious third jersey would be a reversal of the blue and orange home jersey, by simply switching the orange and blue. For example something like this:






Would you/would you not buy one?

I have never liked the all orange jersey. Orange just seems like Philly a little too much for my tastes. It also reminds me of the Great Pumpkin which is funny in a bad way.

Maybe if they somehow blended the black and orange...

I'd gladly buy that jersey. Though I'm not a huge fan of the nameplate

...how about we just wear home and away Jerseys like we did for 20 years before we started all this Jersey BS back with the Fisherman nonsense?

Never understood the need for 42 different Jerseys...

I own an original 'home white' and 'road blue' (I still view them that way, even though its backwards now). I will never buy another style.

Obviously with the bolded above, they are not catering to me, and are looking to sell 1,000 different jersey types to kids across the globe. No Thanks.

No, but its better than the black ones for sure. I vote we just don't have third jerseys unless they're nice blue ones.

I like that design. Looks like the old orange ones but a cleaner design. This is coming from someone who hates the black jerseys more than anything so pretty much anything besides a t-shirt or a potato sack is better than those to me.

No, I wouldn't buy one, but it's 10 times better than the black one.

I never understood the jersey craze.. I own 1 home original white jersey I got back in 94. The saddest thing is the Islanders have gotten the 3rd jersey wrong so many times! Why wont they learn??

Fishsticks to puke orange to the Crip Color black and blue mixed with grey and orange. I laugh when I see people wearing these things.. kids are starving in the world and you spent money on this?

I own a white original and its all I need... God knows what monstrosity they will commit when we move to Brooklyn. Maybe with the added revenue we can hire a fashion designer and not let some Kingsborough Community college intern - No more Hofstra interns design the thing

I LOVE orange jerseys. My Isles old alt is still my favorite.

I really hoped for an orange this time around, and I wasn't at all mad about the color scheme. I love it, I think they jersey looks really cool. But it just needs a logo in the middle, not that stupid basketball look.

We need a secondary logo to use.

Take a new secondary, trade out the stupid wordmark, and I'll buy the black jersey tomorrow.

But given the option I'd rather have an orange jersey. I don't like the different colored nameplate though. But an orange alt using the current logo would be good, but an orange jersey with secondary logo would be great. I've always liked a patch I have that took the NY out of the logo. Utilize that and it would be awesome.

If the orange jerseys had more blue, I'd be all about it and probably buy one. Orange makes me think too much of Philly.....if they make a decent black jersey, I'd be okay with it.

I still like the mock-ups that came about when the Brooklyn announcement was made. Now THOSE could work in a black jersey.....maybe with orange piping and definitely MORE blue.

I actually wouldn't be against more incorporation of green, actually. Cheeseball as it may be, certain aspects of the Fisherman jersey still appeal to me. Some arrangement of green, blue and orange come off to me as water/sunrise colors.....it may come off as sacrilege to some, but sea green can still come off to me as respectable.

Yea, I don't see the need for it either. But the fact that people do need to get it is why they keep putting them out there. Maybe if they come up with one that is good, enough people will buy it and we can afford to get another player.

I think the way to fix the black jersey is either add the primary or some new secondary logo to the front. At the very least get rid of the numbers. Honestly, with just "Islanders" across the front I would consider buying one. The number on the front though ruins it for me.

EDIT: Also swap out the grey for white

Ya know who always had THE BEST, and I mean ABSOLUTE BEST third jerseys?

Detroit. Montreal.
THEY SELL HOCKEY, not merchandising.

And we're gonna have yet another peachy keen third jersey for everyone to make fun of.

Again.

I like Detroit and Montreal's thirds.
