Tuesday: The Eleventh Hour

GOOOOOD MOOOORNNNNING VIETNAM! No? Ok. Hi everybody. Welcome back to another Tuesday post that isn't all messed up. Once again, I apologize for that and to Avi for the misspelling.

Anyways, If your reading this prior to 5:00PM EST then you have under thirty minutes to get your concepts for the HJC Open in. Otherwise, too bad and better luck next year. 

As a friendly reminder, VOTE FOR THE COTW! it takes at most two minutes. Get on that stuff.

HJC Open Round Robin entries (due Tuesday @ 5pm Eastern)
COTW June 17-23 vote (ends Friday @ noon Eastern)

To the Concepts!

 Bradley Debode- Binghamton Senators Alternate
Positives: We begin our AHL parade with Bradley's B-Sens alternate and the design looks pretty good. Making the striping classic while having the double stripe in the yoke looks really good.
Negatives: That roundel style logo is a little too small. Also, the problem with this template is that using the black gives the whole concept a rough look to it.
Overall: 7/10

Bradley Debode- Binghamton Senators 
Positives: the striping is really clean and unique on this whole set. The accents on the waist and making the ends a different color make the jersey look simple but effective
Negatives: clean up your template. All that grey makes it look unfinished.
Overall: 8/10

Bradley Debode- Bridgeport Sound Tigers Alt 
Positives: Playing off the islanders current alternate turned out really well here. The four stripes and white out logo look pretty interesting on this whole uniform
Negatives: Bring in those beautiful numbers that the islanders have on their alternate jerseys. The plain block numbers are just boring on this set. 
Overall: 8/10

Bradley Debode- Bridgeport Sound Tigers 
Positives: Out of the two uniforms I would have to say that the white set is the better of the two. The two stripes with the different colored gems work well as a nice nod to the Islanders while giving the Tigers a look al to themselves.
Negatives: The orange uniform just isn't working out for me with the white hem. I get the color swap but in this case it doesn't work with the blue as the striping.
Overall: 7.5/10

Josiah Bosch- Springfield Thunderbirds 
Positives: Thanks for making the yokes match. Anyways, the striping on this whole set just looks awesome and the different colored hems work out well on this. Also, the different colored nameplate actually looks good on this set.
Negatives: Call it nitpicking but the white jersey would look better matched up as the dark jersey. The striping being different on the arms and the hem just doesn't work as well as the other jersey.
Overall: 8.75/10

Lucas Daitchman- Springfield Thunderbirds 
Positives: What's really working for this jersey right now is the arm striping cutting off at an angle instead of just going half way. It really works well with the logo. Also, the chest stripe was a really good idea to mimicking the striping on the logo.
Negatives: Make the stripes connect. I get that you wanted it to look like the logo but if it's going all the way around then make it connect. Also, the yoke stitching doesn't need to be that crazy. It might cause movement limitations if it were to be used in a real life situation, but that's a guess.
Overall: 8.75/10

Ryan Christensen- Edmonton Oilers 
Positives: I don't know what you were thinking when you made that logo but looks awesome. It gives off a 70's feel to it with a modern update. As for the jersey, the simplicity of it works out really well to make it pleasing to the eye.
Negatives: The chest stripe is a little much on this.
Overall: 9/10

Ryan Christensen- Montreal Canadiens 
Positives: I'm seeing a pattern with you and the sleeves. They definitely work on this faux back jersey you made with the hem stripe matching the white jersey. Also, the logo being simply white really gives the jersey a much more defined look and those block "M"s on the shoulders look really good. 
Negatives: Nothing. Absolutely nothing
Overall: 10/10 COTW Nominee

Zeke Goldsmith- Philadelphia Quakers
Positives: It's good to see that you really simplified the Quakers jersey and added some modern touches to it. The yoke and hem stripe look great as does the black arm ends.
Negatives: Get rid of the stitching on the arms so it looks like a square yoke and make sure your logo is the same color as your jersey.
Overall: 7.5/10
 
Well that's all I got for ya kids. Good luck to all of you who entered in the HJC Open. Have a good rest of the week and now I pass off the torch to Phil.

The stitching is that of the NY Islanders Stadium Series jersey/alt.
