TXHT Jersey Share – Old School Becomes New School

What is old becomes new again in today’s edition of the TXHT Jersey Share series. The past two days we have looked at two jerseys from the Washington Capitals past, and today we are looking at the reintroduction of the Capitals retro white jersey through reebok as an alternate jersey.

Originally brought back for the 2011 Winter Classic against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Capitals decided to bring back the original red, white, and blue uniform as their alternate jersey for the 2011-12 campaign. Honestly seeing this jersey over the Capitals then current, still current(?), away jersey has always been more appealing to the eyes, and a full time switch to this look is still very desired. Especially since 1994 and all of the jersey design changes like Reebok Edge and now Adidas AdiZero, this is a design that has been able to work on both of those jersey changes as evident with the Reebok jersey pictured above.
