  1. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Looks like TSC is doing the usual mega dump of leaks as I type this. Unfortunately, this round is pretty poor photo quality so it's hard to see some of the details. The good part: traditional colors: England white/blue/white, France blue/white/red, etc. Looks like custom number fonts have returned after all teams (except the US) went with the same style the last cycle. I like the red numbers on the England shorts. That looks cool against the blue. As far as the designs go, these are extremely boring. Not seeing many stripes, sashes, or much of anything. I think I can see slightly different colored sleeves on the white England shirt, as well as the rumored St. George's cross on the red shirt (it's subtle). I'm disappointed to see the cross not on the Portugal design. That scoop collar looks bizarre, too. Early verdict is that these are more the usual paint by numbers from Nike. Same collars, minimalistic designs, and all with the same sock stripe. Disappointing. Updated with Croatia: not as good as usual with the larger checkers and solid colored sleeves. Also, that secondary kit is one of their worst in recent memory. Their usual royal blue with minimalistic white and red checkers were always some of absolute best international kits.
  2. NFL 2017 Adjustments (New teams added 11/20)

    The Saints set looks good, but the brassier shade of gold always looks better, in my opinion. The current shade looks too washed out, beige-like. I like that you fixed the pants stripes. That’s one of my biggest gripes with their current set. It clashes with the helmet stripe.
  3. Oklahoma making the switch to Jordan Brand in 2018

    Could be some subtle changes to their uniforms besides the Jumpman. Looks like a new wordmark and number font. The wordmark and number fonts were spotted in their new football facilities. As far as proprietary fonts go, this one is pretty nice. The uniforms are just mockups. All pics via this website: https://medium.com/@SoonerTracker/lets-talk-about-jumpman-7bf1059a7365
  4. 2018 MLS Kits

    Don't have an online link to "source" but the rumor is that Atlanta's new change kit will feature some form of white, peach, and possibly gray. Probably white with peach or peach with white. After this year's change kit (gray and a lighter shade of red...almost strawberry), it seems like the club is open to experimentation but will stick to the stripes primarily at home. I bet some time down the road, we'll see a royal blue kit with yellow trim (city flag). I can get behind unique change kits. They're fun. So long as the main kit remains, I'm good. The team has adopted the nickname "the Five Stripes" so I think that'll be fairly permanent.
  5. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    All of these are fantastic. The only complaint I have thus far is that the Belgium kit doesn't have black shorts. Everything else is excellent.
  6. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    They do look like Southern Miss and that certainly is not a good thing. In fact, I’d say these are steaming garbage. They look like something a mid major would wear. The number print, the mismatching helmet logos, the gray on the sleeves and helmet don’t match, the yellow Hawkeye logo on a gray background, yeesh. What a mess.
  7. CFB Interactive Concepts (Big Ten complete 11/20)

    The presentation is awesome. How did you do it like that on the Wix site? I have a similar website with the ability to toggle through the various options and it looks totally different. The way you’ve got it is definitely the best way to show many options all at once without having to post 15 different images.
  8. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Some of these leaked pictures, while probably true to design, look fake (both Colombia shirts, for example).
  9. Sorry, what? This should be "Exhibit A" of sufficient contrast for Color Rush. Bright electric blue top to bottom with a silver helmet versus all black with a very dark blue-green (whatever you call the Eagles' color) helmet. And this is coming from a colorblind guy. If they can't pull this off, they might as well blow up the Color Rush experiment right now (not that there aren't other issues with it to begin with, namely the leotard socks, forcing one single color shoulders to the shoes, etc).
  10. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    The Florida uniform is absolutely abysmal. The idea is good in theory but needs to have some level of restraint to still be tasteful. See the basketball example above, or their old Pro Combats. These were a few tweaks away from being great (also the pattern was slightly more subtle in real life than these mockups). It also bothers me that this the gator print set is clearly a one off and does not follow the style of their other sets (besides the obvious striping inconsistencies). Florida's normal uniforms have a small SEC patch at the base of the collar while the Gator is offset on the upper chest. This just looks like an off the rack jersey with the normal SEC patch tacked on. The Gator patch is so clearly oversized for the size of the collar. It does not work at all. The SEC patch and Gator patch should match like this set (should be noted that the swoosh and Gator flipped sides this year...but the gator print set should match their primary uniforms): Lastly, the Ohio State alternate will probably disappoint me. Those white outlines on the light gray jersey destroy the look, in my opinion. It's the same as a gray baseball jersey. Compare the Tigers example below. What functional purpose do the white outlines serve? Absolutely zero. They look like crap. The Ohio State jersey would look much better with scarlet outlines, or the reverse with scarlet numbers and black outlines.

    I liked this one they did.
  12. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I think that is the best solution. The Rams helmet has always been darker than the jersey for this throwback set, and it would look very odd to update it to a royal blue helmet. The Giants paint finish does a great job of reflecting different shades of blue, so in some light it reflects bright royal and in some light it appears dark navy. Might be the best of both worlds to satisfy the historical aspect but also color match it better.
  13. 2017 MLS Kit Matchups

    Came across an odd discovery the other day. Atlanta’s kits have a 3D plastic crest with a textured finish on the jersey. However, the shorts have a plain cloth finished crest. Interesting.
  14. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Both are absolutely terrible and the epitome of what is wrong with adidas in the college game. Tinfoil numbers, tonal color logos, chrome, word marks on the pants, "blackout" versus "iced out." Both are completely knee deep in the flavor of the month fads and already look outdated. This is what Louisville should be wearing (template aside). Classic stripes on helmet, jersey, and pants. Classic drop shadow number font (though I would even accept the current font if it meant getting the stripes back). NC State similarly can hardly go wrong, but boy did they sure find a way with this set.
  15. NFL 2017 changes?

    Well it does open up pandora's box a bit. I always assumed the mask was part of the rigid guidelines for branding purposes. It dilutes the team identities a bit. The only time I've seen masks swapped out in the NFL is for a throwback game and then the Jets Color Rush. They did the metallic decals and mask the first time and then white mask the next (I believe). I thought that was pushing it already but then they went and did it for a normal Sunday game. That's too much.
