    Message # 12991002

    By popular request (of Jon): Let's discuss the current sweaters, and toss about some ideas for new sweaters for Omaha hockey.

    If I can do this properly, we should have a couple (nearly) blank templates to work from -- thanks to Athletic Knit and their website.

    I've been kicking around some concepts. Most of them with some historical tie.

    I also laid out a few ground rules for myself:

    1. Follow the University branding guidelines. So, at this point, less than 20% red.
    2. You'll notice I've tried to find a similar font to the font that came out with the 'Swirly O' and 'Pointy Bull.'
    3. Alternate (Grey, or preferably Silver) sweaters shouldn't simply be just a 'grey for white' swap.
    Concept 1: Omaha Knights, 1945-46. For those who don't know, the Omaha Knights were a minor league team who played at Aksarben. Center ice for the rink in the old Aksarben Coliseum (as best I can tell) was just west of the Inner Rail Food Hall.

    I really like the black jersey with the white shoulders — all three look great. 

    I'll create some concepts and post my own.

    Black sweaters with white shoulders was something that came up a bit in our earlier conversations. It means Omaha need to get white helmets to go with.

    I'd like to get the message board some exclusive time on these concepts.

    Seeing as I've posted the above on Twitter, let's get our next concept, here.


    Concept #2: New York Rangers, 1979-Present

    The Omaha Knights were a Rangers farm club for a couple years (a theme you will see in some more concepts). While the connection between Omaha and the Rangers predates these sweaters, I think we can all agree the Rangers home sweaters are iconic. I would love to see New York 'reverse' these (though, I'm not sure they'd be 'retro'). Until they do, the door is open for Omaha to try it.

    Jon will approve of the white shoulder yoke on the black sweaters (get us white helmets for these). Went from a largely two-tone concept to a full four-tone with the alternate.

    Fans would like these multi-striped "Ranger" versions. In particular, the grey/silver jersey would be very popular. 


    And like the others, having a contrasting color on the shoulders makes a big difference in terms of keeping a classic design from being too blah.

    another Jersey I happen to own (and these were not around long)

    could do a variation on this style:

    What season was the "diagonal Mavericks" jersey? It was one season only — a special year of some sort.

    The 10th season jerseys were the "crotch arrow" design. 

    Do you guys remember?

    For reference see attached:  The black ones were worn 2003-2007 and the red crotch jerseys were 2006-2007 from doing research.

    Other one offs I can think of was the omaha world herald jerseys (the striped ones with the script omaha)  -- a few forum members own one from auction I believe.

    There were also the one off ones with the O up both sides.  I haven't seen a lot of those in public but I'm sure a few exist out there.

    forum members:  anyone own a world herald jersey or the O jersey up both sides?

    The cursed black sweaters were a one-year wonder. 2003-04.
