Besides being a lot of fun, by wearing your favorite hockey team’s clothing you can advertise for your favorite team and meet others who recognize your clothing, stop you and chat about the team whenever you’re wearing the clothing. It’s a great way to make friends out of other hockey fans.
Wearing your hockey team’s colors is probably the best way to display team support and identify you as a big fan. No matter whether you wear just a baseball cap or go the route of wearing a regulation jersey, people will know who you think is the best hockey team out there.
The greatest tribute to your team is the hockey jersey. You can get them in both home colors and away colors; the price depends on whether you go for a knock off or buy an authentic jersey from the NHL. They look great in the arena or anywhere you want to show off your team. You throw on a pair of jeans or shorts, a hockey jersey and maybe a baseball cap and you’ll look great in the stands, rooting for your team at the game of your choice. It looks nice to see a lot of people wearing the team colors in the stands at home games.
One interesting twist on hockey jerseys is to buy one of the jerseys that sport the name and colors of a team that no longer exists or has moved to another location. Take, for example, the old Minnesota North Stars team. They’ve moved to Dallas and are called the Dallas Stars but people still remember the old team and appreciate seeing and wearing their colors and old logo. Some of that kind of hockey apparel has some actual value beyond just being nostalgic. If you wear a jersey that isn’t made anymore, it has a fair amount of collector’s value.
Don’t just restrict yourself to the jerseys, either. There are emblems on things like T shirts, ball caps, sweatshirts and just about anything you can wear. They often sport both the team’s emblem and their colors. Some places where you can get these things include NHL stores, the Internet, sporting goods stores and sometimes at the arena itself. Some are higher priced than others but I’d go for whatever you like that fits within your budget. Don’t forget the minor league teams, high school teams and even college teams. They have their colors and apparel, too. You can mix and match or change your attire depending on who’s playing at the time or on a particular day.
If you actually play hockey, you can have your team all wear the same items with the team logo on them. You don’t have to wait until game time to promote yourself and to promote the team you’re on. It can really change the popularity of the team you play for.
