  1. i consider 3 stripes on socks to be fairly ubiquitous and generic as well, though... sort of how chuck taylors are the "generic" looking tennis shoes you'd see in a random cartoon, without actually being related to converse at all.
  2. they've done it before... adidas may use 3 stripes a lot, but they don't own them.
  3. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    i have a feeling the new panthers stuff is going to be fantastic, and have sort of an "american traditional tattoo" kind of vibe to it. old school tattoos and the 101st airborne share a similar design aesthetic... i think that's just the best way they've found to relate what the panthers are trying to look like, without them going out and acting like the jags and saying "we love the army and want to evoke military themes." maybe that's just hopeful thinking on my part. i seriously love the current panthers logo. always have... but i could see a crest with a pissed off american-traditional-style panther head looking absolutely beautiful and unique. then again, i'm a pretty big tattoo enthusiast... so yeah... probably just wishful thinking.

    i want to hate the mustard pants. i really do. i hate the ravens. i hate their uniforms. i'm just a negative guy overall. but i love it. that shade of mustardy gold next to purple is just fantastic. so unique. i'll take purple/mustard over indistinguishable purple/black any day of the week.

    I somehow got Dallas and St. Louis and everything else right... Except for Toronto. I swear I never noticed how stubby the stem of the leaf actually is.
  6. i don't remember if i used the exact font from their old sundin/cujo era nameplates, or if i just used "mouser" which is a very similar font.
  7. In April of 2011, I posted this concept: that is the simple direction i'd go with the logo. classic leaf, modified text, properly centered. timeless look. -edit- also, i deserve bonus points for reebok stealing my round-collar layout. i came up with it in 2011, and they're using it on the habs/bruins winter classic sweaters in 2016. boom. -/edit-
  8. Uniform match ups that were superior

    i was lucky enough to see that in person earlier this year. looks so much nicer than back when i'd go see stars/penguins in person, for example. black and gold versus white, black, and champagne... i love the trend to bring color back to the sport. i don't care how "tough" dark colors look. it is hard to rally around your team's identity when it is all dark and muted colors. "victory green" really gets you to buy in to the whole thing, as a fan. dallas, philly, nashville, edmonton, and the isles may be gaudy and bright and intense, but those are colors you can rally behind a lot easier than the drab color schemes of prior decades. speaking of which, i'm a big fan of dallas/nashville matchups too. THAT is my ideal hope for a color-on-color NHL game. that'd be a beauty. give the preds the yellow buckets too.

    where do i sign up to take this hypothetical north stars quiz that's supposed to put me and my fellow stars fans in their place? they're my team, damnit... and i've read a lot about them in the past 20 years.
  10. NHL Hitz Rebrand (11/16: TOKYO HERONS 12/20/15)

    these are all absolutely amazing. may i request a piranha set, anyway? you've done one that makes the name appropriate for the location with the sydney set. how about relocate the piranhas to an appropriate city, and show us how they'd look now?
  11. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    there is no question what the right uniform for Hossa is... it's not even a matter of his right team, because his right "uniform" is worn by 2 different teams. dude won 3 cups with the chicago blackhawks and a memorial cup with the portland winterhawks.
  12. So is the cut o the jersey. They use rounded yokes in the game, and not the sharper "western" style they do in real life. Both inaccuracies bug me, because I'm a nerd.

    i'm pretty sure they have the exact same laces that all of the other teams wear. they just are missing the top set of eyelets, do the majority of the lace is dangling, instead of actually laced into the collar. i wanted to lace up my authentic stars jersey when i first got it, because i prefer the traditional laced look... the only way i could make it work was unlacing it from the top eyelets, which i think just looks terrible, so i went back to the way the players do it with the short laces... the only real solution is to go with longer laces, and i'd prefer limper laces, too... montreal's solution looks no better to me. it makes laces that are already ornamental (in no way functional) even more useless. they're barely even laced into the jersey at all, now. comparisons: neither of these look as good as this:

    My only question is do I buy Price or Subban?
  15. 2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    I'll never understand why so many teams want to wear solid black against a solid white ice sheet in hockey. It looked awful. It looked like my old rec league team that wore solid black practice jerseys. You can barely even see the sleeve stripes during play, because they're so thin.
