Cole's comments: I've used the term "modern classic" a few times so far, and I really feel like the pre-edge Blues fit that description perfectly. Before the switch to the Edge system, I ranked the Blues as the second best dressed team in hockey, behind the Blackhawks. There's just something about the sleek and sharp shoulder stripes that works for the Blues, giving them a modern edge that pays plenty homage to their original sweaters. My original plan was to drop the navy blue and go with 1 shade of blue and yellow, but that just didn't work for the template I was going for. Then I tried to re-incorporate red into the color scheme, since I loved the Early-Hull-era look. (They went overboard in the Gretzky/Pronger era.) The more I worked, the more I realized that the Blues already designed the perfect Blues sweaters. They just weren't using them anymore.
I simplified the outlines on the logo and added a bit more royal blue to the white jersey than the original had... but overall, all I really did was convert the pre-edge sweaters into the new cut. As far the third jersey goes, I think the Blues current third is one of the best in the league. It just reeks of classic simplicity. That said, I felt like I could improve on it, while keeping the same general aesthetic. I feel like I did that.
After the jump, the St. Louis Blues in action...
