Word came out, however, that the Bears will be wearing their normal brown breezers instead of the white breezers shown, so we won't get to see Washington's AHL affiliate conjuring up memories of the Capitals' white pants just yet. While the idea of white pants is a great idea, the practical use is not so great. White nylon, when wet, tends to start going transparent - modesty not included!
I do happen to like the look of these jerseys, though. They have that traditional feel to them, and the stripes really stand out in terms of the contrasting color. If there's one design underutilized in hockey, stripes would be it. I think this uniform will work well on the outdoor rink, and Hershey should be proud of the way the team will look on January 20.
Here's a larger look at that Hershey jersey, thanks to Penn Live. Again, high marks from this writer, and kudos to the Bears for staying classy.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
