    Unpopular Opinions

    I liked this post, but to be clear (and more specific), there's a certain style of stirrups that I think are truly dumb: Baseball aesthetics in the 70s and 80s were at an arguably all-time low. And stirrups with enlarged loops were a big part of that: I just don't get the mid-calf, tight pants, and stirrups with only the stirrups themselves showing-look. (And that doesn't even address the pull-over jersey and sansabelt, etc.) In the 40s, 50s, as well as likely before and after that time (though the 40s are what stick out most to me when thinking of this style), baseball uniforms obviously included stirrups as well, but the openings were far smaller, showing much more color and any potential striping. Now, as with all things related to sports aesthetics (and really design and art), this is all opinion. I understand that there are many that would disagree with me because the uniform worn by Teke is one that represents baseball as it was when they fell in love with the sport. I just think that stirrups like those in the second picture can offer more the overall look of a uniform.

    They're also the first team with blue as a color to make the playoff! (Sorry if that's been pointed out already.)
  3. Those Denver sweaters are very Burlington Northern Santa Fe!

    NFL REDESIGN (Bears update 1/16)

    These are some tremendous concepts. Nice work all around, Nate. Only because they're the latest, one thought that occurred to me about Green Bay: The first thing I thought of when I saw them was the Edmonton Eskimos. I realize the two are fairly similar to begin with, but the thing that really got me was the stacked two-letter logo on the helmet. The GB mark is smart and looks good, so for redesign purposes, I'd say keep it. I just wanted to point out the similarity. One other thing: Your Browns concept seems to be the logical way to clean up their current actual look. It's solid, simple, and yet a bit more modern than the full-on 60s look they had before their redesign. Again, excellent work all around.
  5. Any particular inspiration for the sleeve stripes here, OSV?

Apologies; I couldn't figure out how to directly embed the tweets. Lame, I know. I've kind of just come to accept that many teams (including my own, WVU) in college football now mix and match, so I'm just going to enjoy them wearing this combination tonight, and be glad they did it at least once this year. Ha.

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    Just for the sake of seeing them, I took the colors out of the posted images to get a better idea of what they actually were. The red/pink is actually on the pink side of red if one were to look at the hex code. Now, I fully admit that the colors are just based on what's in the image and are not the actual Pantone/official colors. But I think it helps to see them this way.

    Bigred's CFL (Victoria added)

    Interesting thought there. When I saw that picture, I immediately thought of a cross between Air Force and Michigan. Nothing about that uniform says "Chargers" to me. I can understand your thinking though.

    "Desecrating" the NFL

    This uniform reminds me of Iowa State and Rutgers in the 90s: red teams that emphasized a dark accent color (navy and black respectively). This captures that same look and feel. It is very cool. Nicely done.

    To be clear, I prefer these traditional looks over either Oregon's new found simplicity or any of the piping, etc. of 10-15 years ago. But, given the choice between the two, I'd take the lesser of two evils, with Oregon's new uniforms.

    I can understand the dislike for the large numbers on Oregon's uniforms. But beyond that, I don't understand why everything is "gross" or why their uniforms are a joke. Yeah, a contrasting nameplate is questionable, sure. Yeah, the numbers are HUGE. But beyond that (and frankly, I don't much mind the big numbers), I'd take Oregon's style of uniform (and the landscape of football uniforms trending that way) 10 out of 10 times over the piped-up, click-and-fill uniforms of 10/15 years ago (i.e. Missouri, Illinois, and NFL teams like Falcons, Cardinals, and Vikings before their latest redesign), which was what was "hot" back then. These uniforms are simple and uncluttered. That goes a long way.
