Johnstown's New Road Jersey, and a Jersey We'd Like to See

On Saturday, in New Jersey, the Johnstown Tomahawks wore a new style jersey for the 2015-2016. If you haven't seen it, just look below.



This new "classic" jersey brings us memories of when the Johnstown Chiefs were still in town and wore a jersey just like this in the early 90's. Also, if you're a hockey fan then you'll know the New York Rangers wear a similar style jersey to this one.

First impressions is that it's a pretty nice jersey, and in the Tomahawks' fourth season, a nice addition to the overall history of Tomahawks' jerseys. With that said, I don't think it's a "must go to the team store immediately to buy myself one", good.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Tomahawks' uniforms overall. To me there a little bland. Sure, the logo is pretty great, as well as the secondary logo's on the shoulders of the jersey's, but other than the few solid lines at the bottom, there's really nothing to them.

Last season we designed a new style of jersey. Here's that one:


This one just looks flashier. But, that's our taste.

Every year the Tomahawks have several "special" jerseys. Military night, and Gun and Hoses are always great designs. We even liked the Valentines Day jersey, though many people hated those. Here's the military jersey that the team wore two seasons ago.




A jersey that is a fan favorite, and player favorite is the team's "third" jersey. This, of course, is the red jersey. Sure, it has the same style as the others, except this one is dominantly red, but it looks great. This uniform is taken from the Chicago Blackhawks who have a red uniform and who's logo looks like it's a relative of the Tomahawks' logo.

With that said, I got to thinking. Why don't we take another design tip from the Blackhawks for a new jersey? I think this one would look great, and would also fly off the shelves in the Tomahawks' team shore.

A BLACK JERSEY.

Any team, any sport, any place in the world, looks great in a black uniform. I opened up Photoshop and did some editing to give all you readers a look at what the jersey's would look like. I went with the Outdoor Classic game jersey, just because the design is a bit different from what we're use to seeing.

Take a look.



What do you think? Like it? Hate it?

I'm sure at some point, maybe a few years from now, we'll see Johnstown with this jersey or a variation of it. When ever that time comes, it'll be great to see and make for a great tandem with the red and white jerseys.

Personally I'd like to see them do something with the yellow on their logo. Somehow incorporate it with their jersey
