    Exactly. It’s objectively bad for the lettering style to be so similar, but slightly different, and as you stated, the N and R are a bit awkward at the moment. The new monogram looks great, though. Players generally enjoy the fit, so I’m not sure what you mean by “bad” here. While I didn’t enjoy the past two iterations of the patterning, the material itself is glorious in hand; springy, yet sturdy and substantial. Have you ever felt it? Lastly, while the distortion leaves much to be desired on film numbers, proper twill numbers look fine.

    It's weird how both the hat and the jersey now look like cheap, bootleg, knock offs.... so bad and a double fail which is actually hard to do...

    So obvious... why didn't anybody think of that sooner?

    Yeah, the mix of round and sharp corners just doesn't look right at all. This is an easy fix too.

    Classic example of “too clever for its own good.” Not enough people walk around in a full Christ the Redeemer pose.

    I’m gonna rain on your parade here, but the Knicks did all the things you just mentioned, plus some. They did the following: Updated primary mark Replaced token with basketball Redesigned uniforms Changed uniform lettering Not to to mention the complete lack of care in refining the weight, composition, and/or proportions of the numerals. Look at the tiny center strokes on the 3 and 8, which are exacerbated by the ultra deep cuts on the sides, the 7 looks like it’s about to tip over, the serif on the 1 is the size of a planet, the inside angle of the 4 is shallower than the outside, the overhanging terminals on the 2, 3, 5, 6, and 9 are all different lengths, and I could probably go on. This is truly a mess. Pittsburgh does not have a slanted 2. Edmonton, Buffalo, Vancouver, Minnesota, Calgary, Philadelphia, Montréal, Toronto, Boston, Arizona, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Colorado, Los Angeles, Washington, and Winnipeg do, though.

    I’m still in shock as to how much the Tigers downgraded this past offseason. The enlarged “D” on the cap looks like a really bad knockoff and the cap “D” on the chest looks so awful. To me, they went from best look in the majors to...well, really not. Congrats on being the new best looking team in baseball, Toronto!

    Recently mildly triggered by the Lincoln Saltdogs headscratcher of a logo change, whose spiffy new dog enjoys maniacally staring into my soul, I got to wondering what some of the worst brand changes ever have been. And watching the Sox play the lowly Marlins I was reminded of this now infamous downgrade: What are some of your (least) favorites?

    When I first started watching sports in the late 70's, I was confused why Seattle would play Washington, shouldn't they be friends (I was around 7 or 8 at the time). Someone had to explain to me that Washington had nothing to do with the state and was a separate city and I had been there before (which made it more embarrassing to me).

    Where to begin... The biggest eyesore to me is the weird mix of rounded corners and squared corners. Just so random... it seems to be one of those examples of a design being created just because you can.

    I've ranted about this enough already. Not even a Stanley Cup win could magically erase my frustrations at this rebrand.

    Nice find. So, they're basically dropping Bright Ceramic (Nike's name for Tennessee Orange) and moving to standard Team Orange (same as Bengals, Browns, Broncos, Florida Gators, etc.). This is similar to how Nike nudged the Browns to do this with their last revamp and is likely done for merchandising reasons: most Bright Ceramic fabric is bought and manufactured into product in Nike's annual Sideline Exclusives (now Authentics) program, which is what most of the NFL/NCAA team product comes from, and very few standard stock Nike "Team" pieces...I believe only Dri-FIT Legend Tees and 2-Pocket Fly Shorts. The rest? No Bright Ceramic. Much more product, although not a ton, is offered in Team Orange, and this probably helps Nike streamline production processes - they can use the same Orange tees for the Browns, Broncos, Bengals, Gators, Boise State, the Massillon Tigers, and any other team wearing Orange...like the Dolphins. They can just order Bright Ceramic for the few schools that do wear it, such as Tennessee, and makes it more exclusive to them. Traditional "Team Orange" is what the Dolphins wore until their last revamp, and honestly, I didn't even realize they switched to Bright Ceramic with the last set until I just looked up their color rush. Tennessee also uses PMS 151, based on a quick Google search. So, in a sense, fans are getting something slightly more traditional

    This is across the street from Citi Field: https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7584017,-73.8447928,3a,75y,26.49h,78.34t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sG_BHR1SGZfHzwXcguwh1wQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Hey, they can't all have McCovey Cove beyond th outfield fence. It's really a shame that such a great city as San Francisco has their teams flung throughout a 60-mile long area. Obviously building venues right in the heart of downtown San Francisco isn't really viable for a number of reasons (mostly $$$ and space), but I wish all of those teams were in easy driving distance and an easy train ride away from SF.

    Up next: Minnesota If the mothership is to be trusted, and why shouldn't it be, then the Twins have a lot of uniforms. Too many uniforms for my liking. Also I am not a fan of the gold they use. Yes it separates them from all the other R/W/B teams but I just don't think that gold fits them. As I was designing these, I came across the powder blue era Twins, and that's when I got the idea to use double blue again. Plus in my head it makes sense because they play in Minnesota which is the Land of A Lot of Lakes and blue = water. Thats as close to NikeSpeak as I want to get . Hats - Hats, hats, hats. There's a lot of hats. The main hat is the navy/navy with the TC logo, and so is the matching helmet. The alternate hat is navy/red with the resurrected M-swoosh logo on the front. Matching helmet as well. BP hats are red/navy with TC logo and white front panel with the M logo. I'm not sure if I'd let those into the normal rotation. Jerseys - So I don't like the Twins in pinstripes. That's just me. I don't think it fits them. I like the new non-pinned home jersey and used those as the base. I borrowed the striping from the powder blue era and made them a little bigger. State outline with the two players is on the right sleeve on all jerseys. Drop shadowed numbers and scripts on all jerseys. Pants - White and powder blue pants. I considered a navy blue set, but it didn't fit so they hit the scrap heap. Triple stripe down the side of the pants. Socks have the jersey stripe on them. C&C welcome!
