New 3'd Jersey.

Recommended Posts

Apparently the new third jersey is going to be a dark blue this year, has anybody gotten a glimpse of it yet?

Looks like a pajama or practice jersey to me. But hey, as long as people want to keep buying them, then why not? I wish I had a following where I could just drum any old thing make a boat load of cash off it like sports teams do. I wouldn't wear that thing if it was free, nvm spend money on it.

Damn that’s ugly.

Even if it was a practice jersey it would still be ugly.

Who picks these things??!! They've got to be able to do better than that!

I don't mind the blue (I actually quite like it)

I don't mind the orange (looks nice against the blue)

I don't mind the stripe/pattern (could be better)

I HATE the crest. .......... BARF .......... looks cheap (practice jersey, t-shirt design).

a white background on the crest, and maybe a white strip centering the orange strips on the arms with another complimenting the ones on the bottom and wrists and that would be a nice jersey

It would certainly be a better crest.

We'll see what it actually looks like when it is official.  Could be that they are just testing fan reaction right now to finalize a design.

Exactly. Why not have 3 or 4 concept designs and have the fans vote on them from what they like to dislike.This jersey is complete garbage. I'm color deficient and this makes me nauseous.

I like that idea! 

This idea was approved by Mr.Tea!

Well it looks like I am the only one who likes it...…………….almost anything is better than the blinding Orange.  

It is all about opinions, and mine is that there was nothing wrong with the old blue and orange jerseys in the first place.🙄  

To me, all the switch to Orange has done is made us look more like Calgary.   When camera is at ice level, it looks as though we are playing in a red (ish) top.

I like these jerseys also. Clean lines, no stupid splash.  The gloves, pants and helmet colors could turn these uniforms into classy or gaudy.

I think from almost every angle, our jerseys look like construction pylons. They're just as bright.

That I do agree with.  I'm no fan of the new orange, the previous deeper orange to me was far more appealing

I don't mind the bright orange. I understand why they chose it. They want to keep "Oilers Colours" without clinging onto the dynasty years. So they changed the orange and blue. The dark blue I really like.

These were the best Oiler Jersey's ever. Why can't we all just admit it and go back to them. This new thing makes me want to hurl.

Yeah I did love those. I wouldn't mind bringing those back for Home/Away, then having our current Home jersey for our third jersey.

Agreed. That blue was great, and the away ones were very cool looking. I loved the Oil in the '80s but not crazy about the colors.

Agreed.  Those were the best.  I always thought it should be copper and blue... not orange!  I didn't mind the '01 alternate.

The proposed 3rd jersey looks like a cheap knock-off that some dude should be selling out of the trunk of his car across the street from your Mexican resort destination.

For me, what separates the GOOD jerseys apart from this one (and these atrocious emergency cone jerseys we have now) is a third colour that offset the combination of copper and blue in a complimentary way.  The Doug Weight jerseys even had two colours (red and white) that did the job (four colours overall).

A gun smoke grey as a backdrop in the crest and added as a fine accentuation line in the stripes would do it, and the three colours together would stay true to the "Oiler" motif.

That might be just me .... the blue and orange of this new jersey work for me ..... it just looks cheep and easy t-shirt company the way it is.  It looks like a Night Market, developing World sweat shop knock off already.

I’m sure I’ve said this before but since oil is referred to as black gold it seems like a no brainer for a third jersey. Not Pittsburgh or Boston yellow but a real deep gold. And bring back our late ‘80’s jerseys for home and away.

Maybe add a couple gold stripes or so to the bottom to keep a little of that "classic" Oilers look.

This look pretty sharp!

I dunno if these are real "special edition" jerseys or not, but China makes knockoffs of them for the whole league.
