Speaking of the Vancouver Canucks, these throwback jerseys are so handsome. They remind you that the Canucks have a history going back 70 years — literally.

Granted, the striping on the sleeves is dated. But, like I said, it reminds you of the history of the team. The “V” in the center may seem a little odd at first until you notice it spells “Vancouver” in a charmingly old-fashioned manner.

My favorite part about these uniforms is the color scheme. The yellow in the cream just barely complements the burgundy undertones of the maroon base. This is complementary colors done right.
