  1. MLB Cool Base Ivory + Two-Tone '47 Clean Up Series (AL West Posted)

    I don't normally go in for the 70's Indians "C" but that looks really good.
  2. Rams want to wear blue and yellow uniforms more often, but NFL says no

    The entire situation with the Rams is dumb because of their self-imposed need to wait for the new stadium to change their uniforms. They were going to have to wait 4 seasons before moving in anyway. There's nothing particularly special about opening a new stadium that necessitates new uniforms nor would it be out of the question to ditch any rebooted version. The solution here was fairly simple. Go with the throwbacks full time. Then at the bare minimum, the LA Rams move into their new boondoggle with recognizable uniforms that have already proven themselves. Rather than have the grand unveiling look awkward five years later. I don't know if the NFL would allow the Rams to swap helmet decals for home and road but I do like the idea of the royal/yellow look with the dark jersey and an all white set paired together. At the minimum it would be guaranteed to work. If the team is so set on "working with Nike" to do something stupid, there's no reason to just hold off on that for a couple of seasons in the new stadium.
  3. Steelers Set to Unveil New Throwback Alternate Uniform

    One subtle detail about the Batman Uni (God I love typing that) is that the numbers are not traditional full block. They have interior angles, more like standard MLB numerals and do not have the same hard angles as the Steel Curtain uniforms. This makes the much finer than what they would wear later. In a sense if you were looking for a happy medium between the current rounded numerals and the classic block, this would be it.
  4. MLB by NIKE

    No worries. Just wanted to confirm.
  5. MLB by NIKE

    It's hard for me to tell. Are there double stripes down the pant leg or single?
  6. Teams that won a championship with their WORST uniform set

    100% correct. Every version of the Patriots was better than the uniforms the Pats currently wear. Thanks to Tom Brady, We. May. Never. Be. Rid. Of. Them.
  7. Lost Sports Logos?

    That might be literally the most '90s logo ever.
  8. Jacksonville Jaguars Uniform Documentary

    Oh I meant as a concept series. Basically picturing a theoretical NFL where every team went mono as their standard home/away uniform for every game.

    Literally everything below the knee is different and that matters when you view a uniform in the game.

    True but there's a difference between this: and this:
  11. Jacksonville Jaguars Uniform Documentary

    Not exactly. The looks would remain normal below the knee and we'd be talking about regular jerseys and pants.
  12. Jacksonville Jaguars Uniform Documentary

    It would be interesting to set up an NFL series where every team's jersey always matches the pants like baseball or basketball.

    My count does not include white over white or Color Rush. White over white predates the modern monochrome look by several decades. Color Rush is a deliberate marketing ploy so it wouldn't reflect any trend in ordinary uniform use. The earliest I can trace the modern trend is 1997 when the Broncos and Eagles both went mono. It then disappears until 2001 when the Saints went mono-black all season. In 2002 it exploded to 9 teams.

    This may be a topic for another thread but I think its worth looking at the degree to which current players enjoy going monochrome in general. We may look at the bodysuit look and think its for bobsledding but for them giving the appearance of speed would be a good thing. Color Rush aside, 20 of 32 teams went mono chromatic at some point last season.

    I think the comment about the players loving to wear all black is telling. I'm sure the equipment guy hears from players all the time. It makes less sense that if you're pushing teal as a signature color, why leave it out of the away uniform?
