The jerseys are inspired by military aviation imagery, especially the numeral font and Third jersey.
While some have argued that the Jet on the pants looks like it's
crashing, I would argue that since the shorts end well above ice level,
the expert pilot has plenty of time to pull out of this controlled dive
maneuver and not harm himself. Also, it's a design element and the plane
isn't real and since I can't flip the stripe upside-down or
else you'd never see the plane 'cause of the jersey overlapping, this is the best I can do practically.
