On the day of the 2015 NHL All-Star Game, Avi Stein is taking a shot at fixing the jerseys. Here's his explanation for the four-sweater look.
The general consensus about the NHL ASG uniforms is that they are pretty horrible. There are plenty of ways both the NHL and Reebok could have avoided the monstrosities that they released. For this concept, I came up with a solid solution (in my humble opinion), and fixed Reebok's mess.
For starters, there are actually two sets of uniforms that I have proposed. One for the Skills Competition, and one for the actual All-Star Game itself.
My reasoning for this is that the Skills Competition is extremely gimmicky, which is a great chance for the NHL to showcase a "gimmicky" uniform. And while the actual ASG isn't much better, it is a long-lasting traditional game (albeit not competitive) that deserves more than a one-off gimmicky jersey that's tacky.
When you look at an NHL All Star jersey, you should be able to identify it immediately as an ASG jersey, not a motocross jumpsuit. Since both the league and Reebok seem so fixated on chrome logos/neon piping/colors that stand out, there are some aspects that I kept around
Have a look.
So what do you think of Avi's solution? Did he hit the mark?
(By the way, my apologies for posting today's concept so late.)
