Classic look coming to St. Louis Blues this fall


When the St. Louis Blues take the ice for their season opener on Oct. 9 against the Rangers, they will be wearing this sweater for the first time.

Recently, I got a sneak peek at the new home jersey the Blues will start using in the fall. And while I don't have any photos to share with you, I was able to recreate what I saw in the graphic above.

Here's a quick rundown:

  • Colors and crest not changing.
  • Big, bold striping dominates design.
  • Yellow piping gone; waist stripes return.
  • Shoulders inspired by original 1967 jersey.
  • Hanger effect design: "EST. 1967"

Basically, the overall design looks a lot like it did before the Blues had their jerseys overhauled by Reebok in 2007. (Photos on the right.)

The new look continues a trend of teams adopting more traditional jersey designs in the years since Reebok's league-wide modernization.

While the home and road jerseys will be replaced in 2014-15, the third jersey will stick around.

Unfortunately, the Blues have yet to announce an unveiling date for the new sweaters at this point. Hopefully we hear something soon.

Since I only saw the home jersey, the road design is still a bit of a mystery. That could be fun for our talented concept artists.

Email me your interpretation of a new Blues road jersey to go with this one and I'll post some on the Concepts page this week.
