    Most of it looks nice but..

    I think the numbers look like crap.

    The new blue and orange has poor contrast when side by side.

    I'm not a fan of the white stripes and white lettering on the Orange jerseys. But I sure do like those Road whites.

    I wasn't sold on the new whites until I saw them in action. Imo they're a fantastic, tasteful modernization of the old whites.

    I've been skeptical but I thought the whites looked really sharp.

    Still not sold on the oranges, though. I guess we'll see when they get used in a game, but these whites really make me wish we'd have gone with a navy home jersey instead.

    If we really needed change anything, that is.

    Not liking the numbering patterns on white Jersey, should have white lines in between orange and blue

    Overall I've liked most of what I've seen from the new adidas jerseys league wide. (The Devils one is awful though).

    I was pleasantly surprised with how the Oilers' whites looked, I was pretty against the colour change from the outset. But I can live with these.

    I'm not impressed with the cresting on these Adidas jerseys. It's a screen print on a single layer that's then sewn on. 'Lightweight', sure, but cheap as **** looking IMO. Those jerseys should be $180, not $250. Otherwise the jerseys look nice.

    Thoughts after seeing them in person?

    I think if you're only gonna buy one jersey, I'd wait to see what the 3rd jersey likely coming out next year will look like. I bet it'll be a navy one, and with the new colours it'll be gorgeous.

    I think they look fantastic, looking forward to seeing the orange ones on the ice.

    They're definitely NOT authentics, or even close. They're pretty much the same fabrics as last year's jerseys, save for the shoulder yokes. The fight strap is legit, but the jersey is a replica.

    The sizing is absolutely wrong. I can wear last year's jersey in a 54 pro or an XL replica no problem, but I tried on a new 54 (XL) and it's way, way too slim. Plan on going one size larger than your normal jersey size - at least.

    The name/number cresting looks cheap, is cheap, and I wouldn't bother with it, but I like my jerseys uncrested anyway. The Oilers logo is the same quality as last year's replica though, so that's good.

    I compare these $180 blank / $250 crested jerseys fairly evenly to last year's $140 blank / $240 crested jerseys. They're nice, I like them.

    Sports Closet in Sherwood Park Mall is loaded up with new jerseys and hoodies, shirts, etc.

    The SUTP/AdMazing coupon book has a couple coupons for Sports Closet too, if you’re looking to save a few bucks.

    Support local businesses!

    They are growing on me as well although I noticed that when there is a close up of the numbers it looks like it isn't a solid navy blue color.
    It almost looks as if there is a pattern on the numbers as well.

    Didnt like them at first, but had to get myself one. The home jerseys should look slick on the ice. They have grown on me thats for sure.

    The numbers are perforated. Apparently they weigh 60% less than the numbers from the previous jerseys.

    [​IMG]

    Columbus, Dallas, Florida, Ottawa, and Vegas are also using these.

    I think it's hilarious when they state the numbers weigh less. Like really? So the jersey weighs 0.004 pounds less because of the perforated numbers? Like that will make a difference ???

    Good stuff Del. Who would have thought that number weight was actually an issue? :dunno:

    Might have actually been a way to save a little money (on materials) in manufacturing the jersey and it was just marketed in a way that made it sound like being lighter actually mattered. :D

    I thought it was for letting the jersey breath and being more comfortable for the players.

    I'm sure we will see a blue third jersey next year. I'm going to hold off to see what those look like. Either the new orange or the third.

    I hope the alternate is navy with no shoulder yokes (similar to the 97-07 darks).

    I'd do anything for some late 90's up to 2006 jerseys.

    FYI for those who are looking to purchase...

    Some retailers are now able to do the cresting with the "on ice" kits. From seeing a jersey done up in this in person it looks a LOT better then the pre-crested Adidas jerseys, however the cost is more ($30-$50) depending on where you go.

    You won't be able to walk out with a jersey since they take about 2 weeks, but the difference is definitely worth it.
