    Took the bear off the C hats. In regards to the hockey, I'm just doing this as if every FBS team had a D1 football, baseball, hockey and basketball team when in reality most teams have D2 hockey team at best.

    Updates for both Chicago and Cincy: Used the suggested Chicago script on the away uniform. Blue outlined in red was hard to read so I went with blue outlined in white. I added Mr. Red back to the sleeves of all the uniforms. He also is the main attraction of the red BP jersey and got added to the sleeve of the white BP jersey. C&C welcome!

    The door isn't closed on Chicago, but I had a quick turnaround on Cincy so here they are as well: Black is gone. That was an easy decision for me. Black serves no purpose in their identity and so it's gone. Other than that, can't complain too much about the Reds. They had a bit of a rocky patch of uniforms for a little bit there but now I think that things are looking better but could still look better still and that's where I came in. Hats - Red on red hat. Wishbone C dead center on those and the helmets. BP hat is just a white with red bill and red C. Jerseys - Jerseys don't get too wild. Home jersey keeps the styling pretty close. Placket piping on the fronts, thicker striping on the sleeves. Home uniforms have the C-reds logo on the left chest number on the other side. Away uniforms have the "Cincinnati" script on the front with the number underneath. the sunday alts, are red versions of the home uniforms. BP jerseys are a little crazy with a Canadiens style chest stripe and a chest number. Pants - Red and white pants. Finally gave the Team Formerly Known as The Big Red Machine a chance to look like a big red machine. Single stripes down the side. Socks have the single stripe on them. C&C on Chicago and Cincy appreciated!

    Terrible names, amazing uniforms

    I think Green Wave is a cool nickname. The uniforms let the nickname down.

    Fresh off ending what is possibly the most well known curse in sports, the Cubs get brand new uniforms! If you're expecting a wholesale change then head elsewhere because I didn't change a whole lot ? Hats - Hats don't change a whole lot if at all. Blue/Blue and Blue/Red with the red and white C logo make up the normal hats and helmets. The BP hat sees the return of the angry front facing bear mixed with the C logo. Jerseys - this likely counts as unpopular but I hate pinstripes. I hate the idea of them and think they are ugly. That being said, I won't :censored: on tradition and remove all pinstripes from the MLB but they're just so boring that they need something else in my opinion. So for the home uniforms I added stripes to the ends of the sleeves. Also, none of the Chicago scripts fit the uniforms in my opinion, so the road greys get the Cubs circle logo on the chest instead. Sleeve stripes there too as well as the walking bear logo on the sleeves. Alternate doesn't change too much, just the addition of sleeve stripes. BP jersey uses the angry bear, chest number and shortened sleeves. Pants - Pants all have stripes down the side. I also added a non pinstripe white set. That's another pet peeve of mine, when teams wear pinstriped pants with alternate uniforms with no pinstripes. chalk it up to the fact that I hate pinstripes. Socks, there are two socks: solid blue and striped blue. C&C welcome!

    I'll give you guys a heads up here but we are now on PAC-12 team 2/3 in a row. Just thought I'd give you guys a warning. First off, just wanna say that UA blew me away with how well they did Cal. The whole package was done so perfectly that it completely blew everything Nike had done in the past. So with that being said, most of these looks remain intact from the UA-back-to-Nike jump. Football - The new look remains largely the same. Matte helmets across the board. Home navy and road white's have the Cal script logo and the yellow helmet has the super cool C Bear logo on the side. The jerseys have the Sather Stripe on the sleeves, and the yellow jersey has navy sleeve caps with the stripe. Pants are simple and all have the Sather Stripe. Also I kept the Joe Roth throwbacks because those are super cool as well. Hockey - The hockey Bears get uniforms to match the rest of the school. Pretty simple across the board. Sather Stripe across the sleeves and hem. The incomplete hem stripe is from a concept I had started that ultimately never saw the boards but I liked the look so I decided to use it here. The yellow alt has the C Bear on the front instead of the Cal script. Baseball - Baseball fits the mold as well. Sather stripe on the sleeves and around the collar. Used the full bodied California script for the road uniform and the Golden Bears script for the home and alt. Sather Stripe down the pant leg. Nothing too fancy here. C Bear logo hat/helmets are the primary, Cal script is the alt. Basketball - With the return to Nike means a return to the Jordan Brand for Cal, which translates to a different manufacturer logo and not a whole lot else. Sather Stripe around the neck and sleeves and the hem and toward the bottom of the shorts. Golden Bears on the home/alt and California on the road. Not much else to say about these. C&C welcome! and don't forget if you want to see all possible football combos, teams 1-12 are up on the website now: https://colinturner95.wixsite.com/1972project
  8. The CHL as a whole has a patch problem. No need to have the CCM logo on the front and back of the jerseys. Because that leads to buffoonery like this:

    Hotlanta gets a fresh(ish) look from the past. Even though I have no qualms with the Braves identity, one of my goals was to differentiate the Braves from the Indians. And i didn't have to look any further than the 70's uniforms. Of course I didn't want to go back to royal blue as I think this is one case where the navy blue works better. It creates more contrast in my opinion and makes the look better. Let's get to it. Hats - hats, hats, hats. I gave the Braves 3 different hats: Navy/red with the A, navy/navy with the A and navy/red with the A-Tomahawk. I think that all the hats work with each other and the uniforms and compliment the look as a whole. The BP hat continues the blast from the past, and is the same hat that was being used I believe last year? It's the throwback lowercase A on a navy/red hat. Jerseys - Jerseys have a bit of a throwback feel to them, as they should since they are based off the 70's uniforms. I didn't continue the sleeve color up to the collar just to be different and keep something new about these uniforms. I also did a bit of a Michigan State thing with them. I don't like the Braves in red. So the alternate jersey is the navy jersey with white sleeves and Braves on the front. BP jersey is another blast from the past with the A logo and a striping pattern derived from the feather on the sleeves. Pants - Pants are a lot simpler than they were going to be. Initially, the feather was going to be on the base of the pants but no way I did it made it look good, so I created a stripe based off of the sleeve feathers and applied it to the pants. Socks have the derived stripe. C&C welcome!

    Your least favorite team color combination.

    Navy Blue and Yellow. I don't know why. Maybe I play against too many teams in hockey with that same color scheme but I can't stand it.

    I'll split the difference with you. I made the AS hat the primary hat above the home jersey but kept the pitchfork hat.

    Did my best to create a Diamonbacks script that was close enough to the ARIZONA wordmark. I tried the magenta but in the end it didn't look right to me.

    Alright I think I got something figured out: As much fun as the black/red/sand and now turquoise era has been, I think purple is a much better and unique base for the D-Backs. However, it is 2018 and times have changed and as good as the old identity was and after a lot of feedback on the preview post, a total throwback to the era went out the window to me. However I think a mixing of eras and designs could work and hopefully it does. Anyways, I kept the black and turquoise from the new identity, brought back purple and copper from the old identity. Kept the new wordmarks and font as well as the logos. Hats - Hats are purple/purple and black/black. Purple hat and helmet have the A logo and the first black hat has the D-shaped Diamondback. The alternate hat is also all black with the A logo on it. Any other combo looked like the Rockies so the D-Backs get two all black hats as a result. BP hat is purple and black, with the Diamondback logo on the front. Jerseys - Jerseys are white/purple/black. Home has the D-BACKS script on the chest, away has ARIZONA, and black has the A logo front left chest. On the sleeves is a more appropriate diamondback pattern which is what sold me on the colors. It just looks and feels like Arizona to me. BP jersey has the pattern on the sleeves, big A logo front and center as well as a chest number. Pants - Only white pants for the D-Backs. Black pants were on the table but eventually scrapped. Not really much to the pants, the pattern is down on the lower half of the pants, unless you wear hemmed up pants in which case it is done to fit. Socks have the d-back pattern. C&C welcome! And as it turns out my last post was post 2,000. Well happy 2,001st post to me!

    Alright so this is where I'm at with AZ So my girlfriend is convinced that the Purple/Teal combo is the best look that the Diamondbacks have ever rocked. I took her considerations seriously given that she is an AZ native and a huge D-Backs fan. However on the flip side to that, I'm convinced that the Red/Black/Sand and now Turquoise look is superior. Given that we can't agree on it, what do you guys think?

    It's been a busy week or so. This thread is certainly not dead or near done. Because of recent being busy in life, I don't have Arizona ready yet, but I do have a Toronto update ready: I rolled back a couple updates. I filled in the maple leafs on the Canada jersey but kept the white bill. I like the white bill the more I look at it. Nothing else to see or say, C&C welcome!

    The Sun Devils were a unique challenge that I didn't anticipate. While I had a design in mind, I didn't realize that there would be cases where a design could fit each team yet each team could have a chance to be unique in and of its self and still fit the design of the greater whole. So this is the first case of that, and I can bet on there being more as we move on. I was a big fan of the Nike remodel of the Sun Devils, though the near elimination of sparky was a bit of a letdown. I do also want to say that I think Adidas hasn't totally killed ASU and even think the decision to move the pitchfork to the sleeves for the football uniforms. Football - As I said above, I liked what Adidas did in moving the fork to the sleeves rather than the shoulders. I kept that and a lot of everything else the same. When I started ASU, I said there would be no black. I lied to myself. I ended up going back and adding a black alternate with a gradient in the pitchfork design. I rationaled it with the idea that UofA doesn't have a monopoly on the "sunset design" so that's how used it. Also because of Sparky fever, every team is getting a Sparky based throwback/fauxback or just Sparky uniform. On all the football uniforms at the base of the collar is PT 42 in honor of Pat Tillman. Hockey - IIRC, there are a couple of club hockey players from ASU on these boards, both of which I believe I have played against. These hockey uniforms are the best example of the unique but still fits "problem" you can call it. The pitchfork as a stripe on a hockey jersey didn't work for me, but it makes a cameo on the shoulders which is sublimated on the home/away and gradiented on the black uni. I used a northwestern stripe for the hockey jerseys because during my research I found a club hockey uniform from the past that I at least thought that it had a NW stripe on it. I also kept the AZ state outline with the captains letters. Also there's a Sparky uniform that fits the fauxback motif Baseball - The current wordmarks in the Tempe font didn't work for me on the baseball uniforms. So I went with a scripty DEVILS font they've been using for a couple years now and put the pitchforks on the sleeves and the pants. Black alternate uniform with the gradients. For the Sparky uni, I went yellow here. I think yellow works better for baseball than it did for the other three sports. Basketball - The pitchfork becomes more prominent on the uniforms here than in the past. The pitchfork design now comes down off the shoulders and around the armholes. Double collar striping. In this case, the Tempe font wordmarks worked here so they get used. Black alternate with the gradients fits right in. The Sparky uniform is a fauxback combining a bit of the new design here and the James Harden era uniforms, mostly in the chest wordmark. I know I was gone a while. Work has been hell, I've been busy in the personal life. I hope to not be gone so long again. Anyways, my apologies for tardinesss. C&C welcome!

    You guys ever have one of those weeks/months where you go to work and you come home and you just don't have the energy to do anything? That's how May has been for me. I apologize for my laziness and hopefully this extended break won't continue on: Before I jump into the next team, I had an update to post for VT. I changed the font on the second alternate so it doesn't blend in so much. Not much else to say there.

    Double to match the jerseys. I realized that I shifted it too far to the right so only one showed as I was posting it.

    You guys have patiently waited so I thought I'd reward you with the final 2 AL teams in one post First up, Texas: The original plan for Texas was to go in a much much much more modern route but at the end, I decided against it. However the design would live on in another way and I'll explain that in a little bit. Hats - Changed from blue/blue to blue/red with the drop-shadowed T on the main hats. On the alternate hats, T logo with the state flag in the same colors. And for the BP hat, I brought back the sheriffs badge and set it behind the T logo. Jerseys - The jerseys almost went in a very State Flag of Texas direction. But after looking at it for a long while, I decided against it, thinking it was almost too modern for this thread, but I loved the design so I couldn't see it go away completely. So for the normal home/away/alternates I did a double stripe that mirrors the stripes on the state flag. I think and I could be wrong but the home jerseys are the first to say RANGERS since the late 90's (?). I also retooled the wordmarks so they are drop-shadowed to match the hat logo. I also added some placket piping. For the white alt, this was the leftover from the original design. I thought that it was too cool to be thrown out and could be used as a "state pride" kinda thing. BP jersey keeps the state pride idea with the T - Flag logo. Pants - Pants have the same double stripe down the side, socks do as well And finishing up the AL, Toronto: I'm a big fan of the Blue Jays relatively new-ish look. Though I can't believe its almost 6 years old already. Because of that, I really didn't change a whole lot. Just a couple minor things. Hats - Two hats/helmets for full time use, white front panel and all blue. For days where American teams celebrate something American, they have a red hat and helmet set to wear complete with a maple leaf. BP hat mixes and matches with blue hat, white bill and white and red maple leaf. Jerseys - Two full time jerseys, white and blue. Double striping matches the split numbering and lettering found throughout the identity. I also added some striping around the collar. For the Canadian uni's used TORONTO on the chest with the maple leaf where the blue jay goes and put the blue jay on the sleeve. BP jersey has the blue jay front and center, large stripes up higher on the sleeve and truncated collar striping. Pants - Pants come in two colors and two striping color variety. Double stripe down the leg and stripes on the socks. C&C welcome on both!

    So I couldn't find a way to make the pattern on the Michigan State alternate uniforms any more subtle, and I decided to move on from them. I knew that at least one team would be getting new uniforms during this project. I beat Virginia's official release, but couldn't beat VT's release of new football uniforms. I'm also going to ignore the new uniforms they released. I think that they are a downgrade from the previous set and while they are cool looking and unique, I personally don't like them. When VT went back to the UCLA stripes a few years ago, I was a big fan. Then they tried to get too wild. Hokie feet helmets, Navy knockoffs, Hokie Stone uniforms. West Virginia catalog unis. BFBS uniforms. It all ends now. No more black, no more grey. As I mentioned above, I liked the UCLA style stripes the football team had worn for a while now but wanted to make the uniforms feel more unique to VT. I used the helmet stripes from before the stripes went full Denver Broncos as a base and used that as the base design for the uniforms. Football - VT's football uniforms have gone up and down over the years. Between piping and stripes and patterns and BFBS/GFGS, it's a mess. This serves to clean up the look as well as unify it. The helmets remain largely similar to what they have now, except the old striping returns to the helmet. The jerseys also don't change a whole lot. The shoulder striping has a chunk taken out of the corner like on the helmet stripes. Also the logos on the sleeves are colored opposite the numbers as a throwback to the Michael Vick era. The Hokie Stone does survive on the uniforms, however it's just limited to the numbers. Pants have a short stripe based on the helmet stripe. Hockey - For the hockey jerseys, I went the Golden Seals route with the stripes on the shoulders. I also added smaller striping around the bottom of the sleeves and the hem. For the pants, the same striping as the football uniform pants. Socks have the same striping. Pretty simple. Baseball - Baseball was probably the most unique. Hats and helmets are pretty simple and straight forward. The jerseys are a little unique for baseball. I did some stripes on the shoulders, but because there isn't a whole lot of real estate on the shoulders, I also did stripes on the sleeves and those have the corners taken out. HOKIES on the front of the home and away and VT on the orange alternate. the pants also have the shortened stripes. The fourth jersey I found on line as one they've worn in the past and I thought it was too cool to get rid of. The wordmark is based off of the St. Louis Cardinals but with the hokie logos. Basketball - Finally, the basketball uniforms keep a lot of the same conventions. Thick collar striping on all the jerseys, with shortened striping on the sleeves, a lot like the Knicks uniforms of old. I also added a truncated stripe on the jerseys that lines up with the shorts. Shorts have striping around the hems on the legs and the logo on the side. C&C welcome!
  24. I agree with this. The numbers don't look like they fit the letters.
