    Got a beer league starting in a couple weeks. Really want to look sharp out there since my skills arent that sharp.....Any recommendations?

    Don't wear pro gear if you are not good at hockey. Wear a generic jersey with either nothing printed on the front or something random (example, I use a jersey that I got when I was 18 that has the state of Illinois on the front of it). If you wear Bruins gear, you will be made fun of and most likely be identified by other players as sucking even before you step onto the ice. Don't call attention to yourself if you don't need to. Bruins-colored socks or gloves are fine, though I wouldn't push it with flashy gloves (I don't like players with white gloves for example...fuck BU).

    Agree with Kenny. Look the opposite of sharp. Just about everybody in a men's league is wearing well worn and beat up gear. The surest way to standout is to be wearing shiny new stuff, especially pro gear. If the game isn't there, it's better than blend in and let them think you're just rusty.

    Yep, I agree with both Kenney and RIFan. You will stand out with flashy gear. You don't want to stand out if you are new to this.

    Hit up play it again for some used gear. They have blank sweaters as well. Don't be the guy wearing yellow/gold/gray.

    This x1000.

    Other than that, wear whatever you want.

    Curious why this is? I've been wearing a yellow practice jersey I've had since high school

    So when you wear it are you playing for light or dark?

    Good point. I think I always used a penny in scrimmages.

    grey, yellow, tan camo, ugh.

    I may be extreme though- I can get tricked by different sleeves too...see a flash of color and pass it (or not) to the wrong person.

    If you're judging someone for wearing something they enjoy, then you're THAT guy and not him.

    I'm not judging you on a personal level, I'm judging you on perceived skill and figuring out who I need to be worried about and who I can blow by. If your ankles are wobbly as hell, I'm sure as hell not going to worry about you too much when you're out there or, alternatively if we're on the same team, I'll look you off. Gear is the easiest tell tale sign.

    Personal embarrassment. And the cage is always staying on. The face is the money maker despite how many times some townie calls me a pussy for having one as half his eye is closed from a fight the week before. Scouts aren't in the stands, don't need that extra line of sight anymore.
