Jersey Concept

The consensus I'm sensing is that no one really hates the jerseys now, they're just blah and kind of cookie-cutter-ish. I thought I'd take a crack at a new set.

I know that everyone always pines for black and yellow, but I think that that belongs to a different era of Penguins. This is a new generationof Pens players, and black and vegas gold, like it or not, are their colours. I did include a throwback to the 1992 Stanley Cup jerseys (a 20th anniversary type thing) though.



What do you think?

It's a step in the right direction, but I still think they need some work. There's a photoshop of the best Pens Jersey concept out there that I've seen. It pops up in these threads, showing Crosby in the first winter classic with the proposed home/away/alternate sweaters on. Those are my favorites.

Honestly, yours remind me in some ways of the pre-Rbk Edge era jerseys with the actual gold stripes on them. I don't really like the current jerseys. Like you said, too cookie cutter. I wish they could have transfered these to the modern template, because they would look pretty good in my opinion.



But like I said, the three photoshop jerseys on Crosby look awesome.

I loved those jerseys, getting rid of them was a huge mistake. My main problem with the current ones is that they have no personality, they're just bucketfilled Reebok templates.

The three photoshop jerseys on Crosby are fine, but frankly they're a bit dull. The striping is so basic that it just looks bland instead of sharp. I've never been a fan of the white shoulders on black jersey thing either.

I like the one on the right, much like what the "black guys" wore in the Black and Gold game only using the NHL Pens logo. The other two are pretty much the same as our 2007 jerseys only that the bottom torso portion uses horizontal color bands.

Start with the one on the right and go from there, good stuff.

The only thing I'm not crazy about is the contrast of the gold on the collar. Maybe looks toned down irl though.

What do you think?

The white ones are a little too empty but generally I like all three candidates. Less is more. The problem is, it's almost impossible to gauge the look of a jersey unless you see it on a player. Unless the jersey is so ****ing ugly (like that old Flames Jersey or the Thrashers' lopsided POS design) that it's not even required to see it on a human to know it sucks.

I like our current jerseys better than the ones proposed here. The black ice jerseys look like those strange jerseys that are sold at marshals or tjmax. The other jersey proposed by op are just flat out too plain

I would like the middle row left & right to be our away/home jerseys. And the bottom row center to be our 3rd.


If they used the solid vegas gold jerseys, they would look like turds skating around on the ice.

..... But they are pretty damn classy

Not gonna lie. I absolutely loved the darks in the black vs gold game. Liked them a ton more than our current darks.

I prefer the Vegas gold at this point. I like that the three teams all share a basic color concept but aren't the same thing. Steelers are classic black and yellow, pens have Vegas gold and the Buccos have a splash of red in most of their stuff now.

Our dark should not be any form of gold. It should be black. I don't love the blues, but it's better than either of those yellow or gold ones. Don't really like the circle logo either.

While these aren't as ridiculous as those St. Patty's Day or pink womens jerseys you can buy, they are still pretty bad. I saw em' yesterday and wanted to post a pic, but I didn't wanna blind anyone or cause anyone to vomit all over themselves or their screens.

Top Left, Bottom Left are decent. Although not a fan generally of any design with the white "shoulder pads". Looks upside down or something.

Get rid of the white shoulders on these, and I'd be fine with any of them. Although I'd be especially happy if they started wearing gold away sweaters.
