We're just about a month away from the anticipated 2012 Winter Classic that will have the Philadelphia Flyers take on the New York Rangers in Citizens Bank Park. Last week, the Flyers held a press conference to unveil their jerseys for this outdoor event inside the Phillies clubhouse. At the event, they not only had blank jerseys on display, but Blair Betts and Brayden Schenn were on hand to wear their jerseys.

From a design standpoint, I think Reebok did an outstanding job. I'm part of the school that preaches "less is more" and I think the black and white stripes do just enough to give it a classic feel. The addition of black on the shoulders give the uniform some weight without it being overbearing. The Winter Classic logo will be placed over the right shoulder. The numbers and names will be black while the name plates will have a white rectangle behind the lettering. If you'd like to take a look at the full uniform (below), there was a display set up inside the arena (Photo credit to Kevin at @kevind182).

If you would like to purchase these Flyers jerseys, you can do so by preordering them online (shop.nhl.com) or visiting the Philadelphia Wells Fargo Fan Gear Store. This week the store will be open from Monday to Friday from the hours of 11AM to 6PM.

The visiting team in the classic, the New York Rangers, will be debuting their jersey tomorrow  at 4PM (11/28). The ceremony will be live streamed through BlueshirtsUnited.com and MSG's Dave Maloney will serve as the host. I will have a post up in the late evening after the NYR festivities have ended.
