Orange & Black Breakdown

Tonight the Flyers will take on the Carolina Hurricanes; but that isn’t the big news out of Philly today. The Winter Classic Jerseys we confirmed last week have been made official!
Official Flyers Winter Classic Jerseys
What do you think? Why I love it after the jump
Personally, I am a big fan of the Winter Classic look the Flyers will be dawning this year.
The tie in the front is something I’ve wanted the Flyers to incorporate for years, and the black numbers and letters look great on what I’m assuming is the off-white, old school base we’ve all grown accustomed to seeing lately. With finite details such as C’s and A’s in a Keystone pattern, these jerseys will be a staple in the Flyers growing arsenal of great threads.
Kudos to the team for really getting it right in this design that came from scratch. I wasn’t sure how I feel about the black shoulders, and I would have to look to that as the biggest flaw in the design if I were nitpicking.
Unfortunately this jersey won’t be in use until the Winter Classic on January 2nd, and there is plenty of hockey to be played before then - starting tonight.
Stay tuned for a game day post from Vindisi; but until then, what do you think of the Flyers Winter Classic threads? What would you keep or do differently?
Lets Go Flyers!

About Orange & Black Breakdown
The Orange & Black Breakdown looks to be the ultimate, around the clock source for news and information on the Philadelphia Flyers organization and it’s ever-present quest for the Stanley Cup. Focusing on what the team can do to achieve success is the ultimate goal.
The OBB is written and maintained by myself - Marc Siciliano. I’m a college graduate and media production professional in the sports industry with credits on projects like Hard Knocks: Bengals and 24/7 Penguins vs. Capitals: Road to the Winter Classic. A man of many hobbies, I always seem to find a way to spend a disproportionate amount of my daily routine with two things: Flyers hockey and social media (much to the dismay of my hockey impartial friends on twitter).
So what does this mean for you? The plan is to combine these
time-wasting habits passions with my love for writing to provide you with complete coverage of the Flyers from both my head and around the web, 24/7.
This is my second writing stint focusing on the Flyers, but for a much larger audience - so do be gentle. Different perspectives and opinions on the organization are welcome and encouraged. Just because I see it one way doesn’t mean I’m beyond seeing it your way as well, so speak up!
I’m always interested in interacting with readers, so find me on twitter (@marcs797) or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let’s talk hockey.
Thanks for reading; Lets go Flyers!
