People in general were less than thrilled about Michigan's new-look white jerseys for football. I suspect the reaction to the new hockey jerseys will be much, much better. The Hoover Street Rag found an ad for them in the new MDen catalog.
That white sweater is absolutely amazing. It gets points right off the bat for having a tie. The striping is very old-time hockey. (See the Hoover Street Rag link for a picture of Red wearing a similar jersey back in his day.) The collar is only one color. To fit with the old-time feel, it's the only one of the three that doesn't have patches on the shoulders. It's a nice, classic look which we haven't really seen in awhile (even the similar pattern on our blues a few years back had those god-awful pit stains).
Unless I'm mistaken, this is the first deviation from the standard white-jersey-blue-M in a long time. I think we've had that style (plus or minus pit stains) every year since I've been closely following the program (2000-01). It's a really nice change, even if I do like the old style as well.
I also like the addition of the CCHA logo to each jersey. They may have offered that on the recent replicas; it's been a few years since I've bought one. But I like it anyway. I also like that Adidas got the lettering correct on the maize jerseys. The Nike lettering was way too small.
I wish the blue and maize jerseys had ties, but apart from that, I think Adidas has done a really nice job. I'll be purchasing all three of them since, amazingly, I don't have a blue jersey with a maize M. But yeah, that white jersey is absolutely fantastic. I think that one has a good chance to become my #1, since my current favorite (the 98-style gold dazzle one) has proven to be horribly unlucky (at least at the Frozen Four).
