OK so they look a little bit better than the version we saw yesterday and a lot better than the 50th anniversary embarrassments. I don’t hate them. I could learn to love them. I’ve always like the black jerseys, and still like the original blacks better, but these aren’t bad. Big, bold numbers and colors, though I could use some more accent and piping around the name and numbers:
Here’s how the Flyers describe them:
The new jersey stands as a contemporary homage to the unique characteristics of 50 years of the Flyers uniform – a bold design for a passionate city. The primary color of the uniform is black, fiercely showcasing the traditional winged-P on the chest. The single dominant orange bands are a reinterpretation of the singular bands of color on the team’s current home and away uniforms. In addition, these bands of color are complemented by a contrast color name-plate, which is a signature design feature of the Flyers’ NHL uniform.
The full uniform carries the theme of orange accents over solid black – black socks showcase a single orange stripe across black, gloves include orange highlights, and the black helmet includes numbers mirroring those on the jersey.
Fiercely showcasing the traditional winged-P on the chest. I gotta hand it to whoever wrote this to describe just using the logo.

I feel like fashion editor Dan is going to have some thoughts here.
