    The League has a surprising amount of orange, so I've done away with it for this logo. In place of orange is a much more Miami Vice color scheme. I've combined elements of a few different Miami logos. Not a lot going on here, simplicity was my goal. Miami Dolphins:

    It's been 8 days since Veras last posted in this. You're reviving nothing. You're just bumping the thread without providing any input. His most recent post was regarding the Royals uniform updates. I recommended trying a purple helmet. Do you have anything constructive to add?

    I think Paul Lukas was referencing the set before the Nike makeover when he said the Jags' uniforms needed gold because it added warmth to the look. I don't always agree with Lukas but he was right about that, and ditching gold now would be a shame for the same reason.

    Just make sure any concept you create does not have the uniforms be teal. Because we all know Jaguars aren't teal.

    Made a matte finish Eagles concept a few years ago. I liked the idea of it, but when it actually came to fruition, I was kind of like, "Meh"...

    Supreme. You know them as the hybebeast company that makes sleds, shirts, money guns, shoes, jackets, wallets, crowbars, punching gloves, baseball bats, air horns, incense sticks, locks, towels, tools, harmonicas, stickers, and wayy more. They've cultivated a market that will fork over $100 for a plastic sled, $50 for a t-shirt, and stand on line for 3 days to buy a crowbar with their name on it. Some of their stuff is cool, but 100% of it is overpriced. Anyways, I decided to merge that identity with my love for hockey jerseys, and here's the result. A jersey that fits right in with the Supreme Identity. Simplistic to the point where it's almost boring, with a few odd touches that make it "special" for some reason. And because it's the way hypebeast culture is, this would be called "Supreme x Adidas x DT Concepts" for whatever reason. Now give me $500 for it.

    I kind of don't even care what the uniforms look like now that we've been assured the half and half helmet is dead forever. There's simply no way they can look worse.

    Meh, I forgot about those useless white pants the Giants have brought out. Hurts an otherwise great set.

    Put me in the camp that believes the Giants just might have the best uniform in the NFL. And the fact that, as stated above, "one has red stripes and numbers and completely void of blue while the other is solid blue with white numbers and completely void of red" (although I imagine you meant "devoid" not "void") is one of the main reasons that uniform is so awesome. Slavish devotion to simple minded continuity can die.

    If the Spurs try something out with the fiesta colors, and they should, they could always recreate the old warmup jackets:

    Hey guys, sorry about my absence but it has been a very busy few days. 2001-02 is simulated and the artwork is finished, I just have half a write-up left to do before I post. I don't want to give anything away but this was a pretty crazy season with a few big surprises. I believe it says in the guidelines that if a thread is inactive for too long the mods will lock it but will then unlock it if the author wishes to continue with more work. Like the others said though, I think it would need to be inactive for quite a while. As much as I love this project, it will always take a back seat to work, family, even real-life hockey (I still play regularly). That being said, I am still committed to seeing it through to present-day no matter how long it takes. It just might slow down a little and there might be times when I have to step away for a bit. I do appreciate the enthusiasm from everybody who has followed this project and I want to make sure I'm taking the time to produce quality work for you guys and for myself. 2001-02 should be up sometime tomorrow. Thanks everybody!

    In case anyone cares, My experience with helmets through dealing with Riddell and Schutt reps would suggest the following are standard in the helmet industry: Impregnated (molded plastic color, almost always with a gloss clear coat) Standard Gloss High Gloss Metallic Metallic Flake (in the clear coat) Lightning (cheaper semi chrome option) Chrome Matte Satin Those of you who struggle to define satin, my Riddell rep gave me the best verbal description I've heard: "Matte Metallic"

    The Seattle Pilots I believe that this name has some Seattle history (an old baseball team?). Anyway, "Pilots" seems to have a lot of backing as a name. A while back I did a vintage "Aces" aviation theme for Las Vegas... My favourite uni from that concept was the above-pictured brown option...It had a leather-bomber-jacket vibe to it. So, I thought..."Why not Brown?"... I liked the vintage-era feel, so I used some old-time pilot references for the logos, including the U.S. Air Force logo... For the primary...I combined the star and stripes from the Air Force logo, the letter "S", and a hockey stick... Now... after posting this I have to say that I like the single-colour "S" better than the full colour version, so I think that I'll reduce the number of outlines in the primary. I went with a brown, black and vintage-white colour scheme on the uniforms...

    Today we get the White Sox. Red and black are used as team colors to celebrate the long history of that scheme to both the White Sox and Chicago residents the Bulls and Blackhawks. The dark jersey with contrasting pinstripes is a combination of the Chicago American Giants (who also played in Sox Park) with the famous 1996 Bulls alternates that every kid in Chicago fell immediately in love with when they debuted. The theme continues with a three stripe belt with the pattern repeating on the stirrups. The sleeve patch and cap logo use the 1936 S-o-x overlaid over the crossed-socks "W" logo creating a W-S monogram. For the jersey, I've incorporated the script from White Sox ambassador Chance the Rapper's Social Experiment which was used in cross promotional caps in 2016. "South Side" is used as the moniker.

    I wouldn't expect most international citizens to know much, if anything, about Cleveland, but I'd certainly say the presence of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is one of the main reasons people visit Cleveland and is probably its most well-known landmark, which is what the second part of the sentence gets to. In the history of Rock & Roll music, Alan Freed is one of the first non-artist names in the timeline. He literally coined the term and was one of the first DJs to promote the mixing of genres on a single format, which birthed an integration of styles that became modern Rock & Roll. The Moondog Coronation Ball was probably the most famous Rock & Roll concert of all time until the Woodstock Festival. Anyway, as long as the people from Cleveland are familiar with this, then nothing else really matters. It's an in-house mascot who only makes appearances at games and local restaurants/events. There's no need for anyone else to be familiar with it.

    I think the Nike run in the NBA has been a disaster so far. This whole “Teams can wear whatever they want” experiment is terrible. Then there’s the Lakers who aren’t even wearing their classic purple jerseys. That’s like the Yankees not wearing pinstripes for the majority of the season.

    Warmth absolutely comes to mind. It was something that the 2009 set dearly missed. Weaver said he wanted it to feel clean, but it just felt sterile and devoid. Anyways, Coughlin started with the team back in 1994, so it’s safe to assume that he could have had a part in the first uniforms that hit the field (not the goofy ones that were rejected, either), so I feel as though the uniform is in good hands.

    If gold is minimized, at least have it as a trim on the numbers at least. Keep the logo as it is and if that is the only gold we have I am OK with it

    99.9999999% sure the white logo is for social media use only. $45 per game is a pretty sweet deal for decent upper deck seats and a team that's turning it around.

    Yeah I'm kind of surprised the Marlins didn't choose to wear the throwbacks against the Dodgers; in 2013, the Rockies and Mets wore throwbacks to celebrate Opening Day '93 (even going so far as having the Rockies wear road uniforms at Coors Field, as their first game was at Shea in '93). No real rivalry or affinity between the Marlins and the Rockies, though. edit: I realize the Mets have a great home uniform, but the underline really looks good, IMO.

    This thinking only works if you think the other sports don't exist outside the Olympics. Those "athletes you don't see everyday" are doing it year in, year out, and the people that follow those sports know it. So actually having top pros in the Olympics in hockey or basketball is consistent with what you see in every other sport. But yeah, treat Allyson Felix, a legend in American track and highly decorated speed skater Shani Davis like novelty acts..

    Regarding the font I am of the same mind you are. They not only use the font on the Twitter but also throughout their website, on most all the media releases, and throughout stadium signage and it's part of the graphics package for the scoreboard and stuff. I really, really hope it stays.

    The future set may not be the best ones they've ever worn, but if they wear a teal jersey and have a regular helmet, it will probably be good enough IMO.

    I think "matte" is overused to simply mean "not glossy" when there are, like you say, varying degrees of glossiness. It's better to think of it like paint: Flat is a better term than matte. This shows no real highlights, just a smooth gradient from the shadow to the lit areas. Satin shows definite highlights, but they are softened, like the Utah image you posted. Molded colors are fairly glossy, particularly when new. You can see pretty crisp highlights in these, like semi-gloss or even gloss paint. Gloss finishes are like a typical car clear coat. When you look into it, it's got crisp highlights and a defined reflection, but in the tone of the helmet color. Chrome is like a mirror, obviously, but can be tinted to take the tone of a certain color. Darker blacks and whiter whites in these reflections. There are older helmet models that were clear shells with the graphics and color applied internally. It's been decades since those have been used, though.

    No - those WERE fashion jerseys, not alternate jerseys. Definitely not interchangeable words in this case.

    I'd say that the Titans ideal color balance goes something like: 1. Columbia 2. White 3. Navy or at least the same with navy and Columbia swapped. This right here is a pretty amazing balance (I even kind of like the red on the accessories because it isn't directly competing with the blues):

    I had the exact same reaction. The MS Paint mustache made him go from unknown generic white guy to Don Freakin' Mattingly. One of the most distinct looks in baseball. He's one of the few guys that can pull off a mustache like that without looking like total pedophile. It's a very short list.

    I've been holding onto this idea for a while. So, I'm gonna revive this series! The Flyers and Flames have similar bases for their logo: their namesake coming out of the first letter of their city name. That's where the similarities end, so I applied the Flyers simple colour scheme to the Flames modern jersey template. C&C Appreciated!

    I think this looks ok, but it shows the biggest issue I have with non-glossy finishes. The decal is most definitely glossy, yet the helmet isn't. It isn't UNIFORM. I guess I would have less issue if the decal were also flat, but then I'd just say it was ugly with less objective reason.

    Then why not keep the sash for the first two seasons? That just doesn’t make any sense. Edit: because, in point of fact, we didn’t know that at the time. When the 2017 jerseys were unveiled, the club was teasing a fully-custom design for 2018. https://www.twincities.com/2017/02/17/minnesota-united-unveils-its-new-mls-kits/ So what happened? If they couldn’t come up with a wing design, and I’m not sure they couldn’t, Minnesota should have stuck with their sash. Two non-wing primary kits? That’s not on Adidas, it’s on the club.

    I'm still pissed they never paired that orange helmet with the white or orange jerseys. What a dumb idea it was pairing that with the black jersey.

    From Maryland to Florida, time for the Magic City. At first, I didn’t know how to approach Miami. My initial idea was to use the Vice theme, but since the Heats already went for that path, I wanted to try something different. In the end, I went for a design inspired by the Art Deco District, using beige as main colour, and pastel hues of teal and pink. Also, I decided to add a subtle striped pattern based on the same architectural style.

    I guess this was the perfect topic to finally give my opinion on the NBA. THIS WHOLE 4 JERSEY THING SUCKS! Why not have 8 jerseys in 2018-19? You really can't have changes anymore in my opinion after you have messed with the identity of a team. When I turn on a game, I don't know who the hell I'm watching anymore. Sorry I'm being old school here but it's gotten out of control. I know it's about money but geez.
