Sunday: Here Comes the Jerseys!

Howdy everybody. Steve here with another Sunday post. As you guys have seen, we already had the Yotes and Canes reveal there alternate jerseys (technically Philadelphia did as well but we already knew that) and I'm sure plenty more are to come so keep a watch on HJC's social media for your latest and up to date information on the alternates.

HJC Open (coming soon)

Okay let's get to it!

Alan H- St. Andrew's College
Positives: The striping on the arms is really nice. it reminds me of the Bruins striping setup on their last alternate jersey. The stripes aren't too think as well as being not too thin. Also, the roundel logo look great on the front of the jersey and the pants and socks match perfectly.
Negatives: What really seems off about this concept is the choice of font for the numbers. The number font gives me a more modern style look and just looks our of place with the jersey and logo. Also, the Half cut jersey with the different colored pentagon doesn't do this jersey any favors so, being that it's a more traditional design, I'd make the entire collar one color.
Overall: 7.5/10

Burkus C- Vancouver Canucks 
Positives: I really like the idea of bringing back the deep V on the jersey and the "VANCOUVER" text in the V looks really good on the green jersey base. Also, the sleeve striping, while safe, was a good choice.
Negatives: There are some things that could be improved on the jersey. A squared yoke makes the jersey look incomplete and I wonder if a rounded yoke would make the jersey look a little more complete. Also, the plain, white numbers and white name bar leaves the design lacking. The numbers need some blue on them to help them stand out.
Overall: 7.5/10

Jay S- Wichita Thunder 

Positives: What really works on both of these designs is the piping. you perfectly combined the piping with the thunder bolt striping and that's not something easily done. The all black with the white and blue striping works really well as well as the white contrast with it.
Negatives: This isn't really a negative but more of a request. I love that you have this customer player template that you're using and I'd like to see you add some shadows and highlights to it. Adding just a little bit of that would make this look much cleaner and realistic.
Overall: 8.5/10

Jordan R- Battle Creek Crunch 
Positives: The first thing that drew me was the logo. the subtle cracks in the interlocking "bc" looks really good and the jersey compliments it really well. The striping on the jersey seems to look like something I've seen before but, in reality, it's something completely new and I like the way you made it thin but sweeping.
Negatives: Really my only negative is the fact that it's all neutral and dark coloring. I'd, at least, like to see, some accent coloring like yellow or orange.
Overall: 9/10 COTW NOMINEE!

Alright guys that's all I got. Have a good week and I'll see you guys next week!
