One of, if not the most recognisable jerseys in hockey. Clean, simple, bold. What’s not to love about this? In a league where teams change their jerseys often, this classic design has been mostly unchanged in most of our lifetimes. There has been small tweaks here and there but the template has always stayed the same. Whether CCM or Reebok, the design is a winner.

Gwen De Young:

My favorite jersey is honestly the ones they wear now. I’ve been a hockey fan most my life, but I was too young to remember the 90’s Red Wings and so I never got to see them play in those jerseys much. Yet the jerseys they have now, which they have had since 2007, are what I grew up watching them play in. They won a Stanley Cup in them that I got to see and remember to this day.

John Curran:

Red Home Jersey: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The Red Wings have one of the best and most recognizable logos in all professional sports, so much so that it hasn’t had to be altered much since it’s inception in the mid 1930s. Take that logo and match it with the simple red and white color scheme and you’ve got one of the best looking uniforms in all of sports.

Jimmy Halmhuber:

The current home and away jerseys which have been used the longest are classics and cannot be replaced. The logo it has been ranked the 5th best logo in American sports. If you walk down the street people know that’s a Red Wings Jersey.

Patrick Brown:

The CCM sweater is a classic, and takes me back to the nostalgia of the 90s Wings. There’s something about the CCM logo above the name on the back that screams hockey. It seems like there were so many sponsors back then — I remember the classic swoosh that Fedorov brought to the club — but CCM, to me, was always synonymous with hockey.
