    It can be really tough to make tiger stripes look good on a Tigers concept, but the fact that you oriented them vertically rather than horizontally makes it work. Great job!

     

    Looking forward to Houston next!

     

    Thank you very much.

    Here they are! For the Astros I brought back the Tequila Sunrise in the same styla than the White Sox's chestband, using the current script straightened as wordmark.
    While in the home design the front design pops up, in the home what stands out is the sleeve pattern.

    Love the Cleveland unis, especially the blue one. It's a nice detail to include the Iroquois flag!

     

    Thank you!

     

    Time for Detroit.

    The Tigers set feature a subtle tiger pattern. I decided to use the "Tigers" wordmark, apart from the traditional road script.

    Looks great!

    My only complaint is that the pattern is almost invisible on the road set because it's so dark. 

     

    Thanks! I actually made the road pattern darker, because I couldn't see it. This way I have no problem... Maybe it depends on each screen.

     

    IMPORTANT

    Due to the lack of time, from this week I'll be posting only one design per week (every Sunday).


  4. New week, new post! Time for the Chicago White Sox.

     

    The Chi Sox designs try to to bring back their famous 80's uniforms with a twist: the front chest band uses the same style than the pattern from the sleeves and pants, inspired by this jersey. I decided to try a new colour combination, going for powder blue and deep navy blue. I also decided to use the batting man logo on the front for the second design.

    I like the sublimation, I think that is the way forward in baseball.

     

    Is there a rule of the uniforms being essentially color rush-style?  Can the red top go with either blue or white pants? 

     

    On the Orioles set, the orange shirt and black pants would be a fine combination!

     

    Thanks! The designs don't have to be mandatorily one-colour, but I think that's what Nike'd do. The pants can be interchangeable, but I'm avoiding using white pants to make something different.

    Here's the Orioles set with the pants changed:

    Great job on Boston! I really dig the non-arched scripts on the jerseys.

     

    Thank you!

    They’re well made but this reminds me of the Mariners future prediction unis, purposefully ugly. Hopefully baseball never takes this route tbh. But good work I guess, the subliminated designs are interesting.

     

    Well, I think one man's meat is another man's poison. The designs are heavily inspired by Nike's soccer style, which I reall like.

    That New England pine tree looks really good. Any reason for the diamonds?

    The straight wordmarks are really cool too.

     

    I'm still not feeling the monochrome, though. White pants would really help, as would pants + sleeve striping.

     

    Also, I feel like you should at least keep the NOB and the team-specific fonts, because it's already pretty templaty.

     

    Sorry to complain about the basis of your concepts... I guess just want the best of both worlds! (Cool sublimated patterns + striping/scripts/fonts current of baseball jerseys)

     

    Thanks! The striping pattern comes from Nike latest designs. As I said, I'll avoid using white pants, except for certain teams. As for the striping, I wanted to focus the designs on the front patterns, that's why I've removed it from both sleeves and pants. I also tried to combine it with the Aeroswift sleeve pattern, and they didn't look very good together.

    I completely forgot about Red Sox's custom numbers! Here's the corrected version:

  6. Coming next, the Boston Red Sox:

     

    The BoSox will be one of the few teams (probably the only one) to feature two different front graphics: the road design features a pine tree on the front, inspired by the New England flag, while for the home one I've used an "X" graphic, based on the American uniforms from the American Revolutionary War.

    At first I thought on using the home pattern for both unis, but @Carolingian Steamroller suggested to use a different one for the home design, since it would resemble the British uniforms.

    The home design is based on the new Wolfsburg home kit and the graph uses green as secondary colour, inspired by the Green Monster.

    I am one of those guys who doesn't give a hoot about tradition in baseball, these are amazing!  Can't wait to see what you do with the Rocks.

     

    Thank you! You'll have to wait for the Rockies, but I hope the wait will be worth it 😉

    Really intriguing premise for a series. Looking forward to some outside the box designs!

     

    Thanks!

    For real life, obviously these wouldnt be used in games just because of traditional looks, but I can already tell these would be SOLID BP or Spring Training uniforms.

     

    Thank you 😁 Indeed, this series isn't supposed to be realistic, but a mix of styles

    I'm not a fan of all-one-color uniforms in general, but you do it relatively well. The all-orange is kinda loud to me, but whatever.

     

    I love the diagonal split line pattern! I'd love to see subtle sublimated texture to spice up baseball uniforms (especially the blank white ones). My only worry is that the Nike burst pattern is emphasized equally or more with the team-specific pattern, when it should really be focused on less.

     

    Still, your template is clean and the idea is interesting! Good work.

     

    Thanks for the feedback! I know they're not everyone's cup of tea, but one-colour uniforms will be the key element of this series, except for a couple of teams.

    The sleeve pattern I'll be using will always be in the same colour than the front graphic. Given Nike has make much more pronounced versions, I think this was it's OK.


  8. After the announcement of Nike taking over the MLB in 2020 I wanted to start a new series, but given the multiple series relating the topic (all of them with great designs), I wanted to do something different.

    This series will only feature full-colour alt uniforms, whose designs will be inspired by the style Nike is currently using for their soccer kits (that’s where the series title comes from).

     

    Every team will use a pullover template, which tries to combine classic baseball uniforms with Nike’s Aeroswift style:

     

    64M7Okx.png

     

    The team list and order will be the following:

    AMERICAN LEAGUE

    Baltimore Orioles

    Boston Red Sox

    Chicago White Sox

    Cleveland Indians

    Detroit Tigers

    Houston Astros

    Kansas City Royals

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Minnesota Twins

    New York Yankees

    Oakland Athletics

    Seattle Mariners

    Tampa Bay Rays

    Texas Rangers

    Toronto Blue Jays

     

    NATIONAL LEAGUE

    Arizona Diamondbacks

    Atlanta Braves

    Chicago Cubs

    Cincinnati Reds

    Colorado Rockies

    Los Angeles Dodgers

    Miami Marlins

    Milwaukee Brewers

    New York Mets

    Philadelphia Phillies

    Pittsburgh Pirates

    San Diego Padres

    San Francisco Giants

    St. Louis Cardinals

    Washington Nationals

     

    I'll be posting new designs on a weekly basis, every Wednesday and Sunday. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did designing the uniforms!

    The tweaks are a big improvement. Nice job! 

     

    Thanks! And thank you guys for helping us to improve the set.

    Time for the only African team on the series, South Africa!

     

    In order to create an unique set, specifically to differentiate from Australia, we've reduced the amount of green (which now is Kelly green instead of Forest green) and gold used, featuring the flag on the sleeves, using its colours for the numbers and socks. The flag has also inspired the alternate uniform, using the placket from the template to mimic its design.

    Nicaragua turned out really nicely! The alt is my favorite of the set. Can't find anything I'd change. 

     

    On 7/20/2018 at 10:49 PM, Carolingian Steamroller said:

    I really like the solution to the numbers on the alternate for Nicaragua. Ordinarily, you'd see the stripes either pass all the way around or they'd cut off at the seam under the arm (we sometimes forget the role of seams and fabric in design). However, for this design they've been artistically angled to make space for the numerals. It's clever while still maintaining a clean look. 

     

    Cheers!

    Well, I like what I'm seeing!

     

    Israel: I really like the revision, @Victormrey. You've done good work in using their color scheme and setting up the dual/Northwestern stripe pattern. The powder blue uniform with the Hebrew script is a good touch.

     

    Italia: @MJD7, you've done a good job with giving the team a more distinct identity. The addition of green, the contrast-colored sleeves, and the striping pattern are fantastic. I find that I like the red numbers of the update, yet prefer the solid cap on the home uniform. The flag-centric set is also fantastic. Well done!

     

    Nippon: The tweaks are pretty solid here, Victor. The country pride set makes good use out of the sublimated patterns and takes advantage of the red hue. Nice work!

     

    Mexico: The racing stripes were an inspired touch! I would have liked to see a split letter number font (kind of like the old Grizzlies or Blue Jays), but I get that it'd pose legibility problems on a pinstriped background. The Aztec pattern uniform is a strong addition to their uniform package. 

     

    The Netherlands: You've handled the color scheme very well here, with appropriate tweaks for the scheme. I like the art reference on the orange jersey, but I must admit that the powder outlined in white is a bit too bright for my tastes. I'm not sure how you'd fix that (since altering it defeats the point of the design), but I'd pin it on personal preference. Well done.

     

    Nicaragua: As @Carolingian Steamroller said, I really like the alternate and the way you've handled the jersey striping. The primary home and road looks are both fantastic, working well with the fonts and colors. I'm a sucker for shoulder stripes, and your minimalist version of them was excellent. It's good!

     

    I can't wait for more, hopefully with more timely C+C on my end.

     

    Thank you very much guys for the feedback! We really appreciate it.

     

    @SFGiants58 you're probably right about the sleeve design from the Dutch alt. It's not easy, since we tried to use Orange/Black, but the result wasn't the same. We'll think about it and try to come up with a solution.

    P.S. @MJD7 and me are alternating to post each set, but we both have provided our grain of sand to every design 😉

     

    Now, we're staying in Central America with Panama!

     

    Given there are plenty of teams with Blue/Red as colours, we decided to try something different. The home and road uniforms feature a sleeve design which tries to mimic the national flag, while keeping the current wordmarks and logos. On the other hand, the alt design presents the Panama Canal as main motif, represented with a blue on white wave on the sleeves.

    Love the racing stripes, and the all black alternate is very sleek. Perfection!

     

    Thank you guys for the feedback!

    Back to Europe with the Netherlands.

     

    The set features the current wordmark, but with the crown in the centre, going for a white front cap on the home and a mainly orange road cap which stands out from the all black uniform. The Country Pride uniform uses the colours of the Dutch Prince's Flag, featuring a coloured version of Mondrian's "Composition with Red Blue and Yellow".

  12. As usual, thank you guys for the feedback!

    Time for Japan!

    The current look of the Samurais is great, that’s why we decided to keep the current home and road uniforms, adding a tad of red to their logos: on the home as border and on the road as fill, in order to make them pop-up. The Country Pride design is mainly red, featuring the roundel from the flag with a “J” on it, and a subtle pattern on the sleeves taken from “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”.

    Nice job on Team Israel!

     

    Curious how the home and alts would look with white front paneled caps. And for the alt, I'd make the socks royal blue with powder blue stripes.

    I agree with coco1997, a white front panel on blue cap would look great!

    Venezuela looks terrific. The socks especially. It's nice when teams have a color that represents the nation which isn't necessarily on the flag. 

     

    Thank you guys!

     

    On 7/5/2018 at 9:41 PM, coco1997 said:

    One small suggestion for Venezuela. Could we see red placket piping on the alt to make it consistent with the other jerseys?

     

    Sure thing!

    Gorgeous! That is Team USA

     

    Thank you guys for the feedback and for helping us to improve the original set!

    As we announced, since today it’s Venezuela’s Independence Day, we’ll post its set today. Feliz 5 de Julio!

     

    We wanted to go back to the classic Maroon ("Vinotinto"), which characterizes Venezuelan sport teams, combining it with darker shades of gold and blue, taken from the national flag.

    The home and road uniforms feature the placket and sleeve pipping used until 2009. While the country pride uniform is inspired by the 2017 WBC road set.
