  1. MLB City Edition Series by Pinch Designer (Yankees 30/30)

    I know I've had a blast on this series. Great opportunities to break out of conventional molds.
  2. 8BW14's NFL Concept Thread: 49ers Again (3/19)

    Interesting idea. I don't like the shadows on the sleeve stripes, though. I would either drop them entirely or switch to a variation of the pants/helmet striping like the Niners did in 2017.
  3. MLB in 2020 - Arizona Diamondbacks (26/30)

    It's staggering how good the Diamondbacks can look with just a few key changes.

    Series finale today with the Yankees from @Paul Lucas. New York is called the Empire State and combined with the epithet of the Yankees as the "Evil Empire" we came up with idea for "EMPIRE" to be the front of the jersey. The font is taken from the finer version of the "NEW YORK" script of 1918-1926. Subtle pinstripes are present on the midnight blue uniform with grey outlined in white as the main color for the cap, jersey, and numbers. The sleeves feature a Yankee Stadium facade motif. The sleeve patch is a version of the terracotta medallions that adorned the original Yankee Stadium.

    Today we have the North Siders. The flag of Chicago is pretty much ubiquitous across the whole city. It's on buttons, bags, t-shirts, coffee mugs, signage and anything else bought or sold. It's easy to see why with its striking sky blue (standing for lake and river) and four bright red, six-pointed stars (standing for four major events in city history). It's almost a cliche. We taken that theme for the Cubs. The classic cubbie face is interposed onto a red star for the cap and sleeve patch. The 1931 script is used for jersey with four stars on the opposite panel. Since the original 1931 logo was only on one side of the jersey, it was appropriate to repeat the effect but with a twist. We took advantage of the crossed placket to snag some extra space for the "Cubs" script by putting piping on only one side of the placket inspired by a Hanshin Tigers throwback. The numbers are a cleaned up version of the 76 White Sox font to best match the 1931 Cubs script.

    I understand. In that case I'd switch the outter stripes on the white jersey/pants from brown to orange.

    I'd switch the stripes on the brown jersey from mostly orange to mostly white.

    Let's start the week with the Texas Rangers. The Ballpark at Arlington is roughly halfway between Dallas and Ft. Worth while being just a stone's throw away from the Jerry-Dome. So for the Rangers we went with a Cowboys theme based on their "Little Giants" uniforms which they've used for Thanksgiving games and as the base of their Color Rush uniforms. Silver and navy replace royal blue and red and a three stripe 1-2-1 pattern. The script and numbers use an outlined 3D effect based on the old Washington Senators.

    I think that would help. Another detail would be to center the groove in the middle of the blade. Another idea might be to repeat the red on both sides or switch it to the edge side of the blade. Right now its a little reversed. The red is on the opposite side of the edge which would actually draw blood and the fuller (groove) is close to the edge when it would be closer to the spine in practice.

    I really like the numerals on back. That font with the slight 3D styling is terrific.
  11. MLB by Under Armour

    I concur with both of Coco's comments. However, I would suggest putting the barrelman on a silhouette of Wisconsin as a backdrop to make it stand out more. Really like the barley pattern too.

    I love the A's and Braves but not digging the fancy numbers on the White Sox. I think they clash with gothic Sox. The gothic Sox is the pie and block numbers are more like the scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    I think the Cardinals turned out great. The little side details are a great way to side panels in a non-wonky way. The Bucs look nice but I am not a fan of the sword details on the pants.

    To match with your vintage messenger bag.
