A return to the classic Western Australian gold jumper with a black swan front and centre, previously worn in various incarnations 1935-57 and 1988-93.
- the swan was a new solid black design (earlier versions featured an orange beak, various feather outlines, etc.).
- return of the front numbers (previously worn 1977-93).
- WAFL shield added to the neck of the jumper
- new version of the Belt Up sponsor patch first worn in 1997.
- new sponsor patch on the jumper front featuring the Carlton Midstrength beer logo
- sponsor patch (Carlton Draught) on the rear of the jumper for the first time.
- in addition to these front and back sponsorships the WA State team was renamed the "Carlton Draught Black Swans".
- the breast of the jumper now included the name of the league (WAFL) and the year of the match.
- stripes at the top of the sock changed from three to two.
The design of the 2004-2005 uniforms is known (gold with a black swan) but the various sponsor patches on the jumper are not.
