1. Best in Show

Here’s the jersey concept from Lucas Daitchman

Again. I’m not a huge fan of orange as a primary color. But this one from Lucas Daitchman is the best in show for me. Daitchman shows exactly how incredible an orange jersey could be for the New York Islanders.

As I said, it’s hard to make a third jersey with orange as the primary color and not have it look like an Oilers rip off. This one, just like the one from Lexi Dever archives that.

With the bold blue stripe down the length of the arm, Daitchman does a great job of breaking up all of that orange. Along with that blue stripe are the four customary Stanley Cup stripes on the arm. Two are above the numbers and two are below.

The crest? Unchanged from the original. Why mess with perfection, right?

If you absolutely hate the orange Lucas has three other options for you that are just as equally snappy in my mind.

You can go full navy blue for that classic look. You can have a lighter blue for a bit of contrast. Or you can go teal as the primary color.

Again, all three are excellent choices, but that orange primary truly pops off the page. Not only that but it’s a design I could actually see the New York Islanders wearing in the not-so-distant future. That’s something you can’t say for most of these concepts. Even if some are absolutely gorgeous.
