Red Wings and Hurricanes

I’m not a fan of hockey, and there’s already a great site about sports uniforms, but after seeing today’s Sh*tty example on the subway the other night, I felt compelled to show it here.

A plain red shirt, a few white stripes, and a beautiful (and classic) illustrated logo. At least Detroit has this going for it.

Clearly a case of everything but the kitchen sink: a badly drawn, hockey puck hurricane logo; secondary logos on the shoulders; multiple stripes (the gray ones are actually a cheap metallic silver fabric!); and a hurricane warning flag pattern along the bottom, just in case you missed that they’re called the Hurricanes. Maybe they should add a boarded-up-window motif for next season.


  1. I'm with you. I really like the wing in the first logo!

  2. I actually like the hurricane warning flag as a stripe element, its something I didn't even notice until you pointed it out. But like you said, there's just so much going on with the uniform, it just adds onto the clutter.
