  1. I think it looks great... Aside from the shoulder patches that don't fit in any way what-so-ever.
  2. This is beautiful and will undoubtedly make the actual reveal a letdown.
  3. Absolutely. They updated the purple back in 2001 so I don't see why it's seen as some untouchable classic. The 'Los Angeles' is in desperate need of some kerning and the S's need to be properly aligned to the baseline. Get rid of the black too.

    Canada Day: Toronto Blue Jays Red Uniform for 2018

    I can't believe I'm saying this, because I hated the associated identity, but this logo/wordmark looks great on a red background.

    If the Kachina set pushed the envelope of good taste, the desert-scape alternate crumpled it up and urinated on it.

    Why embrace what's wrong with the current set while ignoring the things it does right? The Flyers have always used unique, curvy striping configurations. The sleeve and hem stripes on the Stadium Series would be better suited to a team like Red Wings or Maple Leafs. At the time their black alternate was certainly a straight colour-flip but if they brought it back now it would compliment the current set nicely while paying homage to the history of the team. Because those flaws are relatively minor and don't sink the otherwise perfect uniform set.

    Paralleling three of the glaring flaws of the main set (non contrasting-captain patch, unnecessary nameplate, overlapping numbers) doesn't make for a good looking jersey in my books. I think its the exact opposite of what a good alternate should be. A lazy shoehorning of a uniform designed for the Stadium Series into an otherwise solid identity. It would be tolerable if they shrunk the sleeve numbers but still vastly inferior to their previous black alternate.

    Philadelphia Flyers Quietly Unveil Third Jersey

    I wish there was a regulation in place preventing Stadium Series jerseys from being adapted as alternates, it's just lazy. If you want to have alternate look make an alternate look.

    Philadelphia are one of those teams that just shouldn't have an alternate. Their primary look is good enough to stand on its own and every attempt at expanding the brand, from the chromified P to the vintage white fauxback, has been a failure. The recent stadium series jersey might be the worst yet.
  10. Forest green and black shouldn't be on the same uniform let alone touching. Blur your eyes and the green all but disappears. Change the Forest to Kelly Green however and it becomes one of the best schemes.

    Carolina Hurricanes Unveil New Black Third Uniform

    So it's not perfect, fair enough. I still think the positives outweigh the negatives and I'm just happy to see their old alternate logo back with the correct flag configuration.

    Looks like it's rippling in the wind and part of it folded over itself.

    In most cases I would agree that six colours is too many but on the Coyotes it just works. I think the thing I hated about the 2003 rebrand the most was that they vanquished such an original and attractive scheme to be just another red, white and black team. Albeit with brick and off white.

    Carolina Hurricanes Unveil New Black Third Uniform

    I think the crest looks absolutely spectacular. It's beautifully rendered, shows an actual hurricane warning (for once) and has a state outline included as an easter egg. It's the rest of the uniform that sinks the look. Why have a "storm grey" shoulder yoke if you're not going to feature the colour anywhere else? Making the pants the same colour would go a long way to achieving some balance. The other issue is having the red stripes directly on black. They went to trouble of adding a completely unnecessary heathered pattern, what would be so difficult about a white or grey outline.

    Coyotes Bring Back the Kachina as New Third Uniform

    That logo hasn't aged well at all. Kachina Coyote is on the whimsical and silly side but so is playing hockey in the desert so it works.

    Coyotes Bring Back the Kachina as New Third Uniform

    A thing of sheer beauty. The only problem is how bad it makes their main set look in comparison.

    I'm glad the flags are "ghosted" because that's just a lazy excuse for a secondary logo. Should have just put their primary logo on both shoulders.

    The logo is certainly vertical but overall I think it looks nice. The biggest issue (like the previous black third) lies with the colour balance. Why have white outline everything on the logo and not have it anywhere near the striping

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    The Lightning have been bland personified in the Yzerman era.

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    Would these qualify as bland? They're certainly empty looking but the piping and half-stripes just might push them from bland territory to retina searingly awful.

    Simple? Sure. Bland? No. Never should have got rid of this set.

    That's easy. I don't know why their old logo is on this picture but it serves as a nice reminder to when they had some character.

    I didn't think the jerseys were great overall (mostly because of the baseball script) but I thought the way the last Mighty Ducks alternate based their striping off duck feathers was absolute genius. I would love to see the Ducks go with the kind of logo 'SFGiants58' was advocating and pair it with similar striping.
