    I wish the Bucs would roll out an orange jersey to wear over white pants. Something similar to what the QBs wear in practice... If they made a more modernized version of the creamsicle throwback unis and paired it with the pewter helmets, I bet it would look pretty good as an alternate look.

    Thank you so much! I'm really interested to see how this goes... as Texas goes full-on with the ranger theme. Here they are! Logos -Yes I know, this is a bold, unprecedented color scheme for the Rangers, but it was hard not to notice it everywhere I looked when researching the Texas Ranger Division of which the ballclub gets its namesake. The only real uniform requirements of this law enforcement division are clothes that are "western in nature," so I tried to embrace that in the identity. The color scheme, Texas Longhorn orange and forest green, feels very western/autumnal, and reminds me of the 2011 World Series logo. -The primary stays as the same badge logo besides the recolor. In a last second move, I removed the drop shadow from the cap logos, thanks in large part to @SFGiants58's outstanding set, and it's something that I think really improves this look. -The home becomes an off-white and the away retains the dust/sandy color of my tweaks series, and now those two colors are used as accents throughout the rest of the set. Uniforms -The main description of a typical Texas Ranger uniform is that it normally consists of a "white shirt and tie, khaki/tan or gray trousers, light-colored western hat, "ranger" belt, and cowboy boots." I tried to fit as many of those elements as I could into the baseball team's regular uniform. -One of the first elements I put in was the thick line around the base of the crown, which is seen on practically every cowboy/ranger hat imaginable. I then transferred that solid single stripe idea throughout the rest of the set, to create a cohesive look. -I decided to make the entire Rangers set a sleeveless look, as it's an element that I thought fit well and allowed for orange to be embraced more as the primary color. The large orange sash along the belt loop is meant to evoke the "ranger" belts that are quite noticeable. -The sock pattern is based off of a common cowboy boot, and it also evokes the Texas flag in its design. I decided to keep the badge that says "Rangers" on all the jerseys, so that having "Texas" as the main wordmark makes a little more sense. -I also decided to go to a single color NOB for better readability. -I added off-white and dust/sand caps as well, to imitate the commonly lighter colors of typical ranger hats. I know this is a really unique and possibly questionable look, but it's something I tried to get creative with and incorporate some ranger themes into the identity. I'm curious to hear what you all think!

    ICON JERSEYS Color Summary: 1 team in gray = Hawks 1 team in yellow (or gold) = Lakers (because their purple one is a "statement" whatever that is) 1 team in teal = Hornets 2 teams in green = Celtics and Bucks 2 teams in purple = Suns and Kings 4 teams in black = Spurs, Nets, Blazers and Heat 5 teams in red = Rockets, Raptors, Cavaliers, Bulls and Wizards 6 teams in dark (or navy) blue = Nuggets, Pacers, Grizzlies, Timberwolves, Jazz and Pelicans 8 teams in blue = Knicks, Clippers, Sixers, Magic, Mavericks, Warriors, Thunder and Pistons Too many shades of blue in my opinion.

    Thanks, guys! I'm planning on using a slab-serif wordmark similar to yours for the update, Admiral. I also plan to use the custom block font on the home and road, as I find myself liking the way it looks with the slab-serif marks (block standard doesn't mix all that well with slab-serif fonts, and neither did the Reds' old custom block font). Anyway, alternate take time! CINCINNATI REDS, PT. II - A fancy, black-outlined wrinkle in time As I mentioned in my Yankees concept, the 1930's were a time of codification for many classic looks. A bunch of teams debuted looks that would be the precedent for their uniforms for the next eighty years (with few exceptions). In our timeline, the Reds codified the Wishbone C while also experimenting with a variety of looks. Both royal and navy were accent colors, pinstripes came and went, and the team briefly brought in a mini-script. This period also saw the final departure of the Fancy Block (is that its name?) C that had appeared on the caps from 1909-31. While we may think of the Wishbone C as an iconic logo, it might not have had the same "brand equity" in the 1930's (especially since the Reds hadn't won a pennant since 1919). What if there was an alternate timeline, where the team eschewed the Wishbone C in favor of the Fancy Block C? What if the Reds kept with the trend towards cursive script wordmarks (the Tigers' road uniforms, this Phillies script, the Cubs' brief flirtation in the early-1930's, and the Dodgers' introduction of the classic wordmark in 1938)? Also, what if the team introduced black into their color scheme (echoing the Giants in the 1930's)? How could they have overhauled their identity in a way that'd inspire praise today (akin to the uniforms of the Cardinals, Dodgers, and Giants)? Well, let's find out! The most notable change is that Mr. Red now bears the Fancy Block C on his chest. The new C is a secondary logo as well, and Mr. Red's head joins with the script wordmark for the tertiary logo. I brightened the shade of red to better contrast with the black accents. The uniforms are classically-styled, and also treat black as an accent color (like how the Cardinals and Red Sox handle navy). I modified Fenway Park JF to create cleaner updates of the Reds' 1936-37/2007-present script and the 1960's warmup jacket wordmark. The "R" and "C" bear traits of the Fancy Block C. I also added a simple sock stripe pattern, which would have been a 1940's creation that stuck around with minimal modifications (like the Cardinals' striped socks). The alternates are visions of how the alternate timeline shaped their uniform history. The "Redlegs" look of the late-1950's now bears the new cap logo and black outlines, while the 1940's throwbacks (which used plain block) now retain the Fancy Block wordmark from the 1930's on a faux-flannel pattern. Black also takes the place of navy as the outline/cap color. Through the twisting of timelines, the Reds can look classy even without the Wishbone C and with black in their color scheme. The concept also goes to show how versatile black/red is as a color scheme. C+C is greatly appreciated! Up next, the Miami Marlins!

    Can I ask why? Is it because they've always worn them? The 49ers's third stripe has been an inconsistent mess going back to the 96 uniform change. I'll take the two stripes that are consistent with the rest of the stripes on the uniform then some truncated stripes that were an utter failure at what the team tried to accomplish.

    I like what you've done with the Rays! The dark green wordmark really improved the powder blue uniform, and I enjoy what you've done with the color balance of dark green/light blue/lime green. The font engineering in particular is stunning, as it's always tough to create new letters for a limited letter set. Good work!

    I really don't understand why people are mourning the loss of the Suns' previous uniform set. IMO, it was the worst in the entire league. I can't decide which element looked ugliest together: the half-assed streaking lines across the front of the jersey, the sublimated streaking lines in the wordmarks, the butt stripe (I know the new uniforms have one as well, but it's actually integrated into the design), or the overly detailed suns/wings on the shorts that didn't match any other aspect of their identity. Some of these elements could have looked nice on their own in a different context, but together, they didn't work at all. Then there was the jumbled mess that was their color scheme. You can tell they scrambled to change the road uniform from black to purple at the last minute to appease angry fans, because purple didn't appear anywhere else in their whole identity. Their new look isn't perfect, but at least there's visual consistency. It actually looks like there was a purpose to the design, instead of a design-by-committee mess that tried to please everyone at once. Hopefully over the next few years, the Raptors, Wolves, Rockets, Thunder and Mavs will take a cue from the Suns and change their butt-ugly looks. Especially the Mavs, who have sorely needed a change for 16 years now.

    Not quite. Nike has gotten rid of home and road designations. New uniform guidelines work like this: The home team in a match-up can choose any one (1) of their four (4) uniforms- which are labeled "Association", "Icon, Community", and "Athlete's Mindset"- to wear; and the opposing (road) team must choose a contrasting uniform from their set of four (4). Uniforms are designated as follows: (Approximation of Nike press release regarding uniform rotation - my nikespeak is nowhere near as polished.) Association: Celebrates the tradition of the all-white uniform in the NBA which "unifies the league" seeing as every team has one. - This is every team's white uniform (previously known as Home uniform) Icon: The counter of the "Association" uniform, the "Icon" uniform is meant to celebrate a team's individuality as a brand. - This is every team's colored uniform (previously known as Road uniform) *Community: (Also referred to as Pride, or City Pride, etc.) Team uniform design that draws inspiration from the community surrounding and supporting the team. - Can be white or colored. (previously known as Alternate uniform) *Athlete's Mindset: (Also referred to as Athlete, Mindset, etc.) Team uniform design that is inspired by players or teams of years past or present. - Can be colored or white. Many team are using fauxback uniform combining both modern and retro elements from the team's history. (previously known as Alternate uniform or Hardwood Classic uniform) *Not sure if every team has both a "Community" and an "Athlete's Mindset" uniform, but they all have at least one of the two.

    This just shows that Nike could easily do three thinner stripes to match what the Niners have traditionally worn but instead they go with two thick ones. Not a fan.

    I'll go ahead and say it: while I like some of the transitions over to the new Nike template, they're not a marked improvement over Adidas. The template is flawed and impedes a lot of design elements that leave a lot of teams, particularly carryovers from Adidas, noticeably compromised. Overall, it's been a pretty frustrating marathon of reveals with only a few decent showings. Nothing looks great unless you're a fan of the few teams whose core designs were able to translate pretty well to the template (Kings, Wizards, Hornets, etc.). Honestly, it makes it all seem as if Adidas wasn't all that bad. Yeah, the sleeves were arguably the worst part of their run with the apparel license. But other than a few concessions, teams were able to incorporate more of what they wanted and look less cookie-cutter as a result. I'd say most of the league looked pretty good overall last season, with some obvious exceptions like the Clippers and Hawks. In sum, the grass isn't always greener and so on...

    That Expos one looks amazing. So now that I've thought about this thing for a couple of days I realize MLB could have done this and not make it as garish by just going to more of an 80s little league look, or even dare I say the softball top look. Some of the uniforms are close but aren't there yet. I think the look they should have aimed for, which would look and feel like the little leagues but could still produce some nicer looking jerseys is this one... Solid bright colored cap, solid color top with appropriately colored collar and cuff piping. The pants belt isn't necessary but the obvious biggest difference here is the sleeves. The awkward faux vest look of the sleeves of the players weekend jerseys is just plain bad, I have no clue why the sleeves are there or why they cut off right at the shoulder. For an MLB comparison from the 80s, I think most of us would be better able to accept if the teams on that weekend looked like this... I think it's pretty obvious that the above little league uniforms were inspired by this type of uniform from the 70s and 80s so why not go full circle and have MLB wear these for the players weekend? With that said, if MLB really wanted contrasting colors on the sleeves, there was a better way to do that too... raglan sleeves. I don't know how raglan sleeves came into existence but whenever I see them I think of old style kids baseball uniforms like these, in the pic on the left that's actually Gary Sheffield... I prefer the first pic above but either of these options would have improved the players weekend uniforms. Anyways let's all rejoice that they aren't (yet) taking inspiration from the more recent Little League World Series uniforms such as this...

    Hey all! Here's a mockup I did for the UniWatch Challenge for redesigning the Tennessee Titans. The sleeve pattern comes from the Greek origin of a titan. I also wanted to incorporate the baby blue as no other NFL team really uses that color. Lastly, I went with the 1973 Houston Oilers throwback, mostly because of the one helmet rule. Let me know what you think! Jake Manternach

    While I like what you've done here (and thanks for the shoutout), I think you could refine it a tiny bit more. I suggest using green undershirts with the orange alternate for more contrast, and a green cap somewhere wouldn't be a bad idea. I agree with Coco that the sash should be either on the caps of belt tunnels/loops, not both. My preference would be to keep that hat sash, if only because of the 1969 Pilots' precedence. If you want to get the idea of "Ranger Pants" across, might I suggest a logo at the top of the pants (like the Cubs do on their road uniforms)? You've got a lot of good stuff here, and it's only a few tweaks away from being one of my favorite Rangers concepts I've seen here. Good work!

    It's a nice look, but I actually thought their previous logo was very solid. The old logo probably needed an update, but it does still have more character than the new one. Lateral move; hopefully some of the bottom-tier looks in the league change up their logos too and Nike lets them have unique uniforms.

    They will undoubtedly still wear yellow at home (except on Sundays when they wear the whites). The uniform(s) they wear on the road just depends on what the home teams wear. Say the Lakers are playing in Philadelphia and the Sixers wear blue at home, then obviously the Lakers won't be able to wear their traditional purple uniform on the road. Their purple uniform will still most likely be their first choice road option, but they very well might have to wear the yellows and/or whites on a number of occasions in-order to provide sufficient contrast from the home team's uniform of choice.

    The Spurs' jerseys took a turn for the worst. Now the numbers don't match the wordmark since the wordmark doesn't have a silver double outline anymore. Also, replacing the Spur U on the shorts for that pathetic excuse for a logo is just downright awful.

    Taken in a vacuum and if you took the "Minnesota" and "Wolves" off the respective jerseys and I told you this was the new template for say the Clippers, a team that's on a coast with an actual nautical theme to them, it's a solid yet unspectacular look. But to throw this on a team from the Upper Midwest named after a large, canine animal and it's a huge WTF??? This is akin to having flames on the side of a jersey for a team called the Pilgrims or something. It's like Nike built this uni template for some other team who was like "Nah, we're good." And the Wolves went and dove in the dumpster to recover it and slap their wordmarks on it to save the time and effort.
