The Bruins have officially released their Reverse Retro jersey, dubbing it “A nod to ’90.”
It should be noted that this Bruins jersey is easily a top-five jersey among the Reverse Retro collection. Simplicity is something the Bruins took into consideration here while it was lacking with other teams around the league. This is not a jersey that I would personally “Chris Sale” for a few reasons.
Yellow is one of my favorite colors and I painted my bathroom quite literally the same color as the Bruins jersey just a few years ago. Because yellow is my favorite color and I love the Bruins I feel like it’s impossible to be unbiased. It would also be unfair to call this a gold jersey. It’s very clearly yellow.
Still, the general consensus on the jersey has been more favorable than not.
“Meth Bear” makes a return as a shoulder patch. You either love it or hate it. Not making it the logo was the right call. The subtly on the shoulder is a nice homage to the beloved bear.
I have to say that this is much better than the leak that came out last week. Like I said before, it’s one of the better jerseys from this collection. The only downside to this release is that fans won’t be able to wear them at games this season.
