I've always been a fan of Tom's work. At the start of 2011 he was a frequent contributor and then he went dark for a few months. Over the last several weeks he has been sending in his fantastic works again. Today I will feature his Winter Classic program that has been in the works for a couple of months. Words in italics are Tom's own. Before I even start, I'll let you know that I'm giving this a COTW nomination!
Winter Classic mark
Colorado Avalanche jersey concept
I like that Tom took the yokes past the typical Reebok Edge yoke stitching. Very retro. I do have to note home the vertical stitching shouldn't go over top of the hem stripes. I do love this jersey, it's my favourite of the two.
St. Louis Blues jersey concept
I personally don't think the vintage white collar works, but I really like the arm striping. At first I thought just the wordmark looked too plain, but after seeing it on the player model it really helps with that vintage look.
For the numbers and names on each jersey, they are both accurate to the numbers and names used on their current jerseys with slight colour changes of course.
