The Blackhawks officially revealed their black 1940s-inspired Reverse Retro jersey Monday morning.
The Adidas Reverse Retro alternate jerseys are a play on 31 teams’ throwback jerseys with modern twists. This marks the first time all 31 NHL teams are included in an alternate jersey rollout, and the collection is a colorful mix of primary and secondary logos, old school and new school striping, and reimagined classics.
The Blackhawks’ jersey is a call back to the white road jerseys the team wore from 1940 to 1955. The colors for it are reversed, so it’s mainly black with white numbers but the red areas (shoulder plate, bottom of the jersey, trim around the numbers) are the same.
The center crest features a retro logo with a white background in a circle. The line of the circle has the words ‘BLACKHAWKS’ on the top with ‘CHICAGO’ on the bottom in an arcing style.
Crafted for the Windy City.
