Sweater looked great on the ice, even with the pants, which, when I really think about it, worked with the whole theme. Can't think of a colour that goes well otherwise, not even black. The vertical red stripe was what sold it as an outfit.
That being said, I only think it looks good on the ice. When we have fans sitting 3-5+ in a row with those on, I think it looks really gaudy. Much prefer the 'Dome be filled with the Flaming Red jerseys.
I really like them, picked up a blank one last minute. Saw a lot of what I can only assume must have been the knockoff ones at the alumni game and the red was different, they looked like crap.
yeah those were knockoffs you can get for about $35 online, it looks like a real jersey but the colors are WAY OFF and the numbers on the arms are way too low, I got one with Iggy and won't wear that **** anywhere but at home. The official ones are definitely nicer.
How can anyone say those pants suit the jersey? Probably would have been better off with the normal blank pant instead.
That said, the colour tone is better than the regular jerseys. The darker red makes it work better.
The contrast works. Same reason why you don't paint your ceiling the same colour as your walls. If the pants were white it would stand out worse. Look at the Canadiens colour scheme, the blue pants are a good contrast. It does give it a nice modern-vintage look.
