I find it hard to believe that icethetics is going to "break" the details about the new jersey.

Surely the Blues will release something prior, have a press conference, or whatever.


Yeah, it seems odd to me too. At first I thought they were unveiling their idea of what it should be. But, reading their twitter feed it comes off as a review of the jersey. I suppose we'll know within two hours.

Yeah, I don't think they ever said they'd be unveiling it. All he said was that he'd seen the jersey and have a write up on it on Monday and he mentioned a mock up of it.

Well, according to Icethetics, here's the new look:



My first reaction is that it really isn't that much different from what we currently have, color-wise, but there are some good things there.

I'm kinda disappointed in that tbh. I really liked the ones that Curt posted. This seems a lot like the ones from the past decade.

Looks a little boring, but hopefully the real things look better.
(This is our previous jersey in 06)

Yea, all the talk of lighter colors and then the one Curt posted, I expected a bit more also. It doesn't seem as retro as the rumors indicated; well, it's retro back to the 90's but I thought it would go back further. It's still an improvement though IMO, I just think it could have been even better.

I'll have to see the real ones before I say too much.

I was hoping our colors would be a little bit lighter, but this is an improvement over our apron strings monstrosity that we've got now. And I always like those 97-06 jerseys we were. Sharp look. It's not exciting because I feel like it's been done before, but I'm going to wait to judge it on when I see the real thing.

Like some of you stated earlier, I still don't really get why this guy is the only person who is posting about the new jerseys. It seems kind of odd. Is there no one else on the planet who has seen these besides him?

Wow? That is not a throwback classic look... It's from 8 years ago.
Same exact colors? What happened to the color tweak we were told was coming to the note?
They look good... I really liked that style when they had it before, but they missed the boat on making them awesome.
Granted, this is his reproduction of what he saw... But it's probably pretty close... But something doesn't seem right... This design goes against what we were told they were going to look like.

3rd Jersey remains. Meh. OK.

Colors are not what I was expecting, but the style is fine, my old KOHO Jersey is one of my favorites and this is very similar in style. Just was really shooting for a lighter blue.

I could live with this. I would like to see a lace up neck line, but I can't recall any blues jersey sporting one in the past, so no biggie.

The 3rd does, but beyond that, none of our regular home/away digs have.

Just putting this out there...

Has there been any confirmation from the organization that there even IS a jersey redesign this year?

The current home and away jerseys can be bought for 30% off. 3rd's are still the same price.

If that doesn't move the needle, Stillman has given a few 'wink wink' responses to questions about jerseys. Here's one specifically I'm thinking of...

http://www.stltoday.com/sports/hockey/p ... 93408.html

Q: There’s been fairly strong speculation that the Blues will change their uniforms for the 2014-15 season. Is that true?

Stillman: Yeah, I think we should break some news right here. We’re going back to the clown uniforms (with the diagonal red stripes that the Blues wore in the mid-1990s.).

Q: Your smile tells us that you’re kidding about that. So is it true? Will there be a uniform change?

Stillman: Let’s talk about that another time.

I've seen that too. I was concerned to see Tarasenko's jersey on sale, they better never trade this kid lol.

Why not put the arch on the front for a change? At least for a 3rd jersey.

This was posted on another board. It's supposed to be a more accurate version of Icethetics' rendering of the new jerseys. Who knows if it's true or not, but this does make me feel better about them. They're still not exactly what I was hoping for, but whatever:
