  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Your're right, I just looked over the press release shots and in one closeup the primeknit is still there. It may be the most subtle coloring of the primeknit I've seen. It usually stands out to me more, even on the whites.
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I believe it's just the current techfit template minus the primeknit pattern. It has basically the same construction; as seen below, the armpit stripe looking area is also present on the Texas a&m Jersey.

    It may just be the resolution of the image, or an out of place stitch, but the star in that logo does seem to have a lightning bolt looking shape on the bottom left point. So while it isn't major, it does at least make a subtle reference to the host team. Unless, it is in fact some sort of error in the logo's reproduction.

    It looks like the Oilers logo is extruded in 3d; That sliver of silver you're seeing is a bit of shading from the inset area of the oil drop before it reaches the orange drop itself. You can also see a bit of the effect on the bottom right of the letter s in the oilers portion.

    I find it very odd that the Fanatics produced replica has Adidas branding on the inner collar. Is that some sort of odd mix up or is Adidas getting a cut of the Fanatics replicas? In my mind Fanatics is a competitor of Adidas now that they've entered into the licensed sports business. It's tantamount to Adidas making stuff with the swoosh on it.

    My guess is that the helmets aren't reconditioned as often as those we see from college football teams in the United States. Probably a few years worth of wear and year on those bad boys.

    Except that Adidas doesn't manufacture hockey pants (yet, anyway). So you may want to rethink that particular hypothetical example.
  8. NHL 2017-18

    In my mind it was already a forgone conclusion that there would be no Adidas stripes anywhere. But I think it would be great for everyone to get confirmation on that! So what's the verdict?
  9. NHL 2017-18

    I would think that the measure is less about stopping people from buying counterfeits and more about helping to identify people selling them. If the oilers leak is real, I wonder if it's the fanatics replica, that could account for any discrepancies between it and what was teased on Twitter. I've seen many "authentic" replica jerseys for sale that don't quite match up on every little detail of a uniform's design.

    I believe the process is substantially more complicated than "People on this board can make that design change within minutes when presented with the templates used" that is all. I'm not saying this is the sports uniform manufacturing equivalent to climbing Everest.

    But that's what it takes to bring a straight copy of a existing design to an Adidas template. And while it doesn't fall squarely on the shoulders of a designer, I would definitely say it's still a lot of work, much more than opening illustrator, or gimp or paint or any software and posting it on the concept forum. A years worth of work according to yourself.
  12. NHL 2017-18

    Do the people on this board have to secure materials, cut out cloth, sew everything together, manufacture a crest and number set, sew it all to the jersey, show it to the team, make any changes dictated by the team, rinse and repeat until the team approves? And then make enough jerseys for a whole team, and then do the same for an entire league It's almost like when you have to do more then edit an illustrator template the process becomes somewhat more complicated!
  13. Apparel Brand Concept Logo (Roundel)

    Your new marks still could use some polish. Take some time to adjust the kerning in roam on; The shape of the a looks to have a slight lean to the right, so you may want to close the gap between it and the letter o, and give it a bit of room between the m. On your roundel, consider tracking out all the lettering (bison bros, adventure co.). the "ventur" all overlap each other and it creates an uneven distribution of weight and negative space. Maybe make adventure co. the same point size as bison bros. I know this will likely cause it to extend to where you currently have your established date. I think that you have 2 great spots to place the 2017, either in the white above the bison silhouette or in the black area below it. Even est. In the white above and 2017 below the bison would work well. Lastly, like the lettering on roam on, take a look at the kerning between all the letters within the roundel you want it to appear as if there is an equal distribution of white space between all letters in each word, which means manually adjusting space between certain problematic letter pairings.

    Check the date, and it's on an old reebok template anyhow. Adidas' New template will be closer to the WCoH minus the side panel three stripes.
  15. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    I think it wouldn't make much sense to produce merch using a secondary before the primary identity is firmly established in the public eye.
