  1. NHL 2017-18

    I thought it would be wise to create a separate thread for next season. What we know: -Adidas is taking over the production of the on-ice jerseys. Fanatics will produce the retail jerseys. -Alternate jerseys will not be worn during the 2017/18 season. -Edmonton Oilers will promote their orange 3rd jersey to full-time home status. Rumors: -New Jersey Devils are reported to have a redesign in store. -Washington Capitals are rumored to be returning to the retro jerseys full time. *edit- also if a mod could move the posts from the 2016/17 thread to this one, that would be cool.
  2. Many, if not most, use sublimated graphics now. It was a big push from some of the uniform suppliers, namely Wilson, in recent years.
  3. MLB changes 2018?

    I was shocked to learn a few years ago that baseball teams used to move into a new stadium part way through a season. Something like that would never happen today. The fact that it happened at Safeco Field is insane, given how recent that was.
  4. Cincinnati Reds: Time For A Change?

    If it's not appropriate to post links to concepts, the mods may remove this. I'm not sure where we stand on that but this thread seems like the perfect example of an appropriate time. This is a concept I made last year: Cincinnati Reds
  5. MLB changes 2018?

    The A's should be unveiling theirs today (I think people here are going to be happy). Off the top of my head I think there's one more alternate uniform we haven't seen. And two hats. There's also some special event stuff in the works but I'm not sure how that's going to be handled.
  6. MLB changes 2018?

    The good thing about the Tigers change is that the D logo will finally be the right size on the caps. I've always hated how small it was.
  7. MLB changes 2018?

    I love the visual theme established in the Dodgers anniversary logos. There are things I'd do differently but ultimately they convey the theme perfectly.
  8. NBA Changes 2140-2141

    Cavs vs Warriors in the Kia Hovercar NBA Finals presented by Mtn Dew for 125 years in a row is getting kind of boring.
  9. MLB changes 2018?

    Oh there's also a special event uniform that'll be unveiled next month I believe.
  10. MLB changes 2018?

    We'll see a few more new things before the season starts. It's been months since I've seen the retail guide but I believe there are at least two more alternate uniforms on the way and a few new hats (I seem to recall more patch hats than what we've seen so far). Some fun throwback stuff is on the way for Oakland. It's also worth noting that the new BP caps are intended to be used as alternate caps and worn during regular season games by a number of teams.
  11. NHL 2018-19

    This is a great point, and exactly the one I argued about years back on this site. People weren't able to differentiate between the two ideas. Nostalgia plays a significant role in our perception of good design, which creates for situations like the one we have here.
  12. NHL 2018-19

    I suppose my point was more about the concept of success relating to good design and how abstract that is to begin with.
  13. NHL 2018-19

    I don't disagree. I just think things are getting a little hypocritical. I used to argue that uniforms are either good or bad based on design alone. Many members of this board argued against me saying success while wearing a uniform was a huge factor in whether it was good or bad. It's a fascinating topic of conversation, actually.
  14. NHL 2018-19

    To be fair, the majority of this board is always saying teams should wear uniforms associated with success.
  15. Quirkiest Jersey Elements

    Also utilized by the Buffalo Sabres:
  16. Quirkiest Jersey Elements

    A unique uniform element that was sadly abandoned was the Maple Leafs socks:
  17. NHL in Houston

    Forgot the Oilers switched to navy this year, good call. My personal preference would be navy and metallic gold with a space theme.
  18. NHL in Houston

    Aeros is a fun name and a great fit for a Houston team. Unfortunately it would be difficult to establish their brand while avoiding jet imagery and double blue (Winnipeg) and star imagery and green (Dallas.) I think I want to see navy and orange but I'm not sure how everyone feels about being so similar to the Astros.
  19. NHL 2017-18

    I think the new Oilers white jerseys are the best they've ever worn. I strongly prefer the navy.
  20. NCAA Basketball 2017-18 New Uniforms

    New uniforms for Omaha: Last year:
  21. MLB Changes 2017

    Word on the street is the Diamondbacks were planning to only wear the teal trimmed uniforms for the playoffs. So far that's true, we'll see if it remains true...
  22. Bryce Harper Hat- what logo is this?

    The brand is called Fear of God. They're designed by the son of Jerry Manuel.
  23. NHL 2017-18

    Good catch:
  24. Right Team, Right Uniform, Wrong Details

    Also the blue-brimmed caps being worn with the black jerseys, as you can see in the background. I believe this only happened for one season.
