Other then going to the games. I wanted to wear mine a few times just because. But then I thought about it and I don't really see people wearing jerseys anymore. I asked a few people why and everyone pretty much gave me the same answer saying it looks tacky or w/e

Back when I worked retail, working strange days and hours, I had a bit more freedom to wear my jerseys. Plus, I was younger then and found ways to justify jerseys as part of my day to day style.

Now, working in a 9-6 M-F Business casual office however, jerseys are NOT allowed. So I have to find other ways of showing Wings pride (I have a few Red Wings golf polos that I wear that are allowed). For big events (Super Bowl, Final Four, etc) they'll let us wear jerseys, so I'll don one for those days. But now that I'm older, I just don't see jerseys as part of my day to day style. They just really don't match with anything I have. Plus, I really don't want to lose 12lbs of sweat by wearing a jersey in the Dallas heat & humidity.

Now, I will *ALWAYS* wear a Wings jersey if I'm going to a Wings game. There is never any question in my mind for that. And if I go to a Stars game, I'll usually wear my Amarillo Rattlers jersey. (Defunct team from a defunct league. This is not my jersey, but it's the same style).

I wore mine to class the day the playoffs started, other than that I just wear them around the house during games.

Grabbed a blank one offline a couple of months ago and will probably put Kronner's name/number on it which will probably result in me wearing it to a couple of Griffs games.

During the colder months, I'll wear them around the house after work or on the weekends. Jersey's aren't just for game days! :cool:

Driving home from work last week, I saw a woman walking her dog in Royal Oak sporting a Wings jersey, thought it was pretty cool.

Sometimes during game days if I'm in the mood. That's about it. Too hot down here during summers to wear them.

Usually just during gamedays, and every once in awhile otherwise. That thing was way too expensive to take chances of getting something spilled on it or getting messed up some other way.

I wear them on the occasional game day ... usually weekend games, specifically. I never wear mine "out of season" and I stopped wearing it during the playoffs this year because they kept losing when I wore it. And then they kept losing anyway.

I still only have my red ccm Yzerman jersey. And I wear it on two occasions. If I'm at the Joe, or watching playoff games on tv. Other then that it stays in my closet until the next game I go to, or when the playoffs start back up. Sort of a superstition for me.

Holy Avs ripoff. Was that their minor league team at some point?

Always wear mine to games, but not much else.

Nope. Not affiliated with the Avs in any way, other than a pretty easy to see knockoff of their jerseys.

A few years later they used the "Star" pattern that the Dallas Stars used too. The team management wasn't much for originality...

I'm like Cameron Frye from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Don't matter where or when, wear them all the time.

It's actually a combination rip off of the avs, stars and thrashers.

Avs, yes. Stars, eventually. Thrashers, not so much. The Thrashers came into existance in 1999 which was 3 years after the Rattlers first started playing.

Now the Amarillo Gorillas (the team formed after the Rattlers went bust in 2002) had some elements of the Thrashers jerseys from time to time, specifically the asymmetrical sleeves. And they kept the Avs love with the "foot" secondary logo.

I like wearin mine when im goin to games and watchin games around the house. Sometimes I wear my jersey out if I feel up to it or if its kinda cold out. My Yzerman jersey is the only one that fits me right, my winter classic datsyuk jersey is way too big so i don't wear it that often unless im at a game.

When I was in highschool I used to wear my jersey(s) after a Wings win.Blank or Yzerman for non shutouts,and Osgood for shutouts.I also grew playoff beards and was lucky enough to have them win the cup when I was in grade 11.I wore a combo of the 3 jerseys for a week after they won the cup.I also Taped over one of the O's in Osgood so it said "Osgod" too!

Now that I'm a year removed from school I wear one when I'm playing outdoor hockey with some friends at a rink I run and during the winter when it's cold out.

I wear my jerseys at home during the games or to the game if I go. I never wear my signed Osgood jersey outside the house though, can't take a chance of it getting ruined. Normally I don't wear a jersey just because.

Was at the Cubs/Brewers game today; many Blackhawk jerseys at Miller Park.

I wear my jerseys alot during the season when I'm out, and about - however they pretty much sit in the closet during the summer months; too warm for me to wear them.

I wear my blank red when I have someplace to go where I don't have to dress up, but I don't want to look ratty.

I don't wear my Lang unless it is a very special occasion.

I wear my "eat, sleep, hockey" shirt to Force games, when I have the time and money to go.

I wear my Sweden and Finland jerseys when I am rooting for them, or if the blank is dirty.

I also find that the blank brings me luck at the casino. :thumbup:

Not shocking considering they wear everything but Brewers jerseys at Miller Park. Bandwagonitis knows no boundaries I guess.

I just wear my jerseys to games. Probably 10 years ago was the last time I wore a jersey out. I feel I stand out to much in a crowd with them on not at a game.

I do have a few of those jersey t-shirts, those are different, I've worn them out a few times.
