I thought that they were awesome. I would actually go out and buy one of those. The colours work so well together.

Didn't when it was first released, but it grew on me pretty quickly. Gonna pick one up.

I think they looked sharp out there. The tan shorts complemented them well imo. Of course there are people who couldn't disagree with that more. I own a Kipper HC jersey.

Yep, I liked them.

Glad I got a #12 HC jersey.

I admit the jerseys grew on me a little. I REALLY liked how the pants shells looked.

I like what the Hitmen will be wearing even more, might have to drop some cash on one of those bad boys.

I like them.

Got a Giordano one, and managed to get him to sign it.

I didn't like them or the cream pants at the start, but I really grew to love the HC Jersey and the pants come game day. Probably going to get Tanguay on a Heritage Classic Jersey.

1) It is a ****ing SWEATER.

2) The sweaters were great but the pants ruined it.

They looked way better in action compared to the mock ups and press release.

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.

1) Frankly, jerseys would have been an improvement over jersey's.

2) Nope. Pants were awesome.

Also, the knockoffs mostly look like ****. The real ones weren't bad.

Snagged an Iggy one down at McMahon during the Hitmen game for half off, what a deal.

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.

Yeah man, clearance on the merch booth stuff. I guess they didn't want to ship the extras to Fanattic for some reason.

Love em. I enjoy wearing mine around campus in Ottawa. Now that I wore it to the game and it helped me keep my nipples from freezing off, I love it even more.

The initial problem was the press release pictures had the red displayed much brighter than it actually is.

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.

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.
