Browncoats 4.0 Hockey Jersey Design
Trying something new here for the Browncoats! I’ve opted to use the brown from their actual uniforms, and I enlisted the logo with black trim, which resulted in adding black to the color scheme too. The goal was to make a hockey jersey that a military unit would wear.
For comparison here is the 3.0 version. Let me know what you think of the 4.0, as a Browncoats offer in the near future is likely.

As point of impractical style, if suggest that you add Mal’s pant stripe down the sides of the waist.
Also, do another run of 3.0 pleeeeaaaassseee….
I have the 3.0 and I absolutely love it. Workmanship is excellent and it always gets comments at 501st gatherings. 😛
Looks awesome. Would it be the same color brown as the Busters line or a different shade?
It’s a noticeably darker brown than the khaki used for Busters 4.0.
Thanks for the reply Dave. I really like this one. And as BrowncoatKal stated the unused 57th Overlanders patch is awesome. It’d be a kinda cool small single sleeve patch by the wrist like the shield location for the Captain 2.0 Jersey. Anyhoo hope this one goes into production, its a def must buy.
I have version 2.0 and 3.0 (well actually my fiance has the 2.0 as I gave it to her upon getting the 3.0) and love them both. The 4.0 looks great and I actually like the unused 57th Overlanders patch for the back.
This is definitely the best version. I loved the idea since the 1st rendition, but this one hits all the right points. I agree about the unused corporal stripes. I would include on the shoulder like rank and use the browncoats logo on the neck. Obviously I am going to have to pick one up.
Overall I like the design, even though I prefer the 3.0 jersey. They both look great. I think in particular I like the Overlanders shoulder patch on the 3.0 than the new ones. Given the choice, I’d order the 3.0 over the 4.0, but I wouldn’t say no to either.
any idea if will be in production soon? I really want one.
Hopefully sometime in the next 3-4 months, Browncoats are overdue for an offer.
thanks for the answer, Dave. Would be very difficult ( or expensive ) to have the regular Browncoats patch in one sleeve and the unused corporal stripes in another ?
I see you’ve changed this up since posting it originally. A lot more green. Love them both. Not sure which I like more. What made you change things? What didn’t you like about the original that prompted the changes?
A couple of reasons: the original design didn’t look appealing when I made the listing art (for those who don’t know, this originally had black forearms and waist with a single green stripe), plus the recent Hitchhikers template looked pretty solid when Geeky Jerseys made it, so I opted to kill 2 birds with one stone and make something more striking.
I’m waiting anxiously for this one. I have a 3.0 that I wear all the time. I like that it is different enough color-sheme wise to almost have a home and away feel when compared to 3.0, whereas the updates have been improvements before now.
Probably next month. It was a toss-up between this and Lannister, went with the latter because GoT is coming back this week.
So, did I miss it? Did it go on sale when I wasn’t looking? I seriously hope not!
Wait! I see it’s on sale now! Yippeeeee!
