  1. Is Dallas wearing a new combo tonight? Looks like they are in the silver pants usually paired with the navy jerseys instead of the seafoam pants that go with the white jerseys

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    Early-to-mid 2000s when all of NFL Europe wore the same template. I love football, but I was obsessed with it when I first got into the NFL around 2000 (right after the Falcons made the Super Bowl). I traded Pokemon cards for a few more summers, then starting obsessing over the Falcons when Vick got drafted. That translated into 24-7 either playing football in the yard, browsing the internet for highlight videos (before YouTube...a challenge!) and even spending summers watching NFL Europe religiously. My parents were so confused.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    I don't think Nike has looked cheaper than it has since taking over the NBA. Not only were the original jerseys ripping, and the pieces (such as the single-colored arm hole loops and collars) look lazier, but every city edition uniform is looking worse and worse. I get the court idea here, but it doesn't work on a uniform. It looks like it was actually stitched as different colored pieces like that. I have not seen a single addition from Nike since the season started that looks remotely good. I miss Adidas -- the NBA used to be my favorite league to follow from a uniform standpoint, but now it's an eyesore.

    No yellow in their home uniforms the last few seasons.

    NFL REDESIGN (49ers 11/11)

    This is one of the best concept threads I have ever seen, so I'll offer one critique: A lot of your pants designs are nowhere close to as creative as your logos (amazing, amazing work) or jerseys -- for example, these sleeves are incredible, but from the waist down the concept feels way more traditional.

    Where did you see that? UNCW hasn't unveiled new uniforms and the home uniform they wore the other night against Clemson is the same as last season's.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    So, the helmets are purple but glow gold where light reflections are? My mind is blown. I gotta see what these look like under the lights of Tiger Stadium

    NFL 2018 changes

    The Jaguars uniform pieces are fine -- the issue is making the wrong combination decisions. The black, teal, and white uniforms look wonderful. All white is too bland. They need to stick to: black/teal/white, black/black/black, black/teal/teal for home black/white/teal or black/white/black for road.

    That Utah stripe is incredible. Their overall uniforms are ugly, but I think they have something to build on with their regular Utah stripe and this one. More teams need to focus less on following trends and more on finding a simple, iconic aesthetic that can be built into the uniforms, like what Utah has, UNC's argyle helmet stripe, Georgia's silver pants with the red-white-black stripe, etc

    New OKC Thunder “City” Uniform Posted A Little Too Early

    Numbers are going to be too gaudy if you try to match them with the font. I think it's fantastic the way it is.

    The pit stains are dragging the Titans uniforms down. They would be decent without them. With them, they are the worst uniforms in the league. There's just no reason for the boxy insert...

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Going to be dead honest: I love the Oregon uniforms. 1) Sure, the numbers are HUGE, but we just aren't used to numbers that big. That doesn't mean that they don't work. Might just take some getting used to. Subtle way to evolve. I don't hate it. 2) They've really optimized the best parts of their past uniforms. Love the apple green, the straight-yellow, and the stormy roads. I think if these are TASTEFULLY mixed and matched, they are going to look really good 3) Big fan of spicing up the black jerseys with that alternate neon color. It's very Oregon without going over the top. Think about all the stuff from the past? Tire tread jerseys with yokes. The two-tone helmets, which were horrendous. The gaudy material and weird shades of green on the Rose Bowl uniforms with the mirror helmets. This, for modern-day Oregon, isn't what I'd imagine... but it's good.

    Atlanta Hawks Unveil New Uniforms, Court for 50th Season

    Time for me to vent! I love that CEO Steve Koonin thinks outside the box. He's fantastic. But, the Hawks have completely lost an identity at a time when they finally needed to find one. The truth is, they have never had one. This 50th anniv logo, court and upcoming uniform are all implementing...black, white and gold? Why? All this is going to do is add another aesthetic to a franchise that can't claim one for its history. The redesign in 2015 is proof that the people pulling the strings in the branding department have no clue what they're doing...unveiling a red/white based logo and then going..."Welp! We are actually red, black and volt, so we're going to let merchandisers re-color our logo in any combination of the colors we want." Where did that get the Hawks? They can't standardize the volt. There are official team graphics in Philips Arena (or were before the renovation, so we will see how things look) where the background was LIME GREEN. Completely green. But the uniform color is volt, and doesn't even look the same based on material (the black jerseys numbers look yellow but the nameplates glow green). The brand is a mess...it's basically two brands...and now you are adding a third with this white, gold and black nonsense. What they could have done is make their alternate court one that complements the new throwbacks, which are beautiful. What they SHOULD have done is pick a red, volt and white aesthetic that isn't as complicated as the tri-color look they have now. I won't even shop for Hawks merch because it all looks atrocious. The red and white merch is most popular with people because it doesn't make you look like a walking comet. The truth is, outside of Nique's days, the Hawks have never had a solid brand. They don't own a color scheme. All of this "streamlined" hooplah is just diluting their identity even more.
