7th: 2007-20 Home & Away Calgary Flames Jersey
In addition to grouping the home and away jerseys here, I’ve also grouped together uniforms that did have some minor iterations during their lifetime. The socks changed from the original Reebok Edge version, some piping was removed along the way, and when adidas took over the NHL’s jersey rights, the numbers and nameplates were changed from the original italicized typeface.
Overall, the best parts of these Calgary Flames uniforms are that they’re the last time the club wore a black Flaming C on a red sweater, their resemblance to the prior set, and I didn’t dislike the Alberta and Canadian flag shoulder patches, although I was done with these after well over a decade of service.
On the other hand, the Flames 2007-20 home and away jerseys remained in circulation for too long (they looked modern at first and dated by the end of their shelf life) and the vertical striping just didn’t do it for me. I prefer a classic looking hockey jersey most of the time and to me, horizontal striping is the way to go in order to achieve that.
