Now it should be said that the artist's goal all along was to create a third jersey for each team, no matter if it ever would actually happen. So here's the jerseys with my comments below.
My Comments: Re-imagining Detroit’s legendary sweaters eh? You’re treading on hallowed ground sir...you best be careful. Oh wait, what do we have here? The home jersey is simply beautiful! I love the elegance of the red, the refinement of the logo, and the simplicity and grace of how it flows all together.
And the away jersey? Oh it’s stunning as well! It’s the sort of thing that’s classy enough to wear formally, but you still know a bad mother f’er lies underneath. I have to give you credit sir, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy watching someone mess with perfection, but you have done the impossible.What’s that? You didn’t change a thing to those two, other than making the stripe follow the flow of the jersey (which I would have to see in person to judge, but it makes sense)? I give you credit, you realized when something is completely faultless and kept your hands off. Nice work sir.
Now for the thirds. As a Red Wing fan, I absolutely abhor the thought of Detroit wearing a third jersey, but I respect your endeavor. And you know, for trying to create something new, you did a pretty damn good job. I think I would like it better without the silver outlines (but would have to see it to decide), but I really do like it. I love the Wings’ version of the Old-English D and wish there was more apparel out there with it. This is basically a “home” version of the Wings Winter Classic jerseys, done fairly successfully.All in all, I'm impressed. But instead of wasting your talents on Detroit, I think you need to make a trip over to Columbus where you're desperately needed. Maybe stop on by Florida while you're at it.
Head on over to Days of Y'Orr to check out his and the artist's comments.
I checked out all the jersey's this guy has done so far. The Minnesota Wild jersey looks amazing. If I were a Wild fan, I'd replace my Christmas jersey for all three of them in a second.
As for the Wings, I definitely think that alternate could grow on me. I would like to see it without the grey though as I don't know that I like the idea of adding a color that doesn't already exist. The two-tone red is fine since it's red in both cases.
anyone recall a long time ago (maybe over 10 years now) there was a fan in the stands with a wings jersey that had the logo on the chest, but instead of just red or white, it was this huge explosion of red lightning bolts all over the entire sweater?
camera showed it during a game and mick just about had a heart attack. this was when third jersey's were just starting to show up.
I dig that concept of the third sweater. Not too big a fan of a third to begin with, but that's one I'd actually like to see in person.
