Call it the back to the future.
When the doors opened at the Stamps Store on Friday morning, fans were treated to their first look at Calgary’s Signature Uniform jersey — dubbed "The Outlaw" — that will be worn for the first time at Monday’s Labour Day Classic. What they saw was a jersey that was in line with the alternate jersey that was unveiled by the Stamps 20 years ago at the 1994 Labour Day Classic, with a modern twist.
The jersey maintains the Stamps tradition of wearing black on Labour Day and sports the now-familiar crossed pistols on the shoulder. New additions include a Western-inspired distinct number font and the Latin slogan Quidquid Requiritur — Whatever It Takes — on the inside of the collar.
The jersey will be matched with the previously unveiled two-tone helmet with a chrome horse logo and black pants with a red stripe that features the word “Calgary.”
