    2019 MLB Changes

    It'd probably help if the script was red like numbers.

    So wearing stirrups with 5-7" whites (or gold) with the pants cuffed at the knee. Essentially 1960's tailoring.

    Which trend?
  4. Given that the Vikings were also wearing a lot of purple.....
  5. The Titans uniforms would be dramatically improved by ditching the blue armpit and making the collar Columbia blue. Also making something on the pants Columbia blue.

    I legitimately hope the sequel is a Romantic comedy. Ice Man and Maverick's daughter is getting married and the fathers of the bride get stressed out over the expense. Wacky high jinks ensue.

    I love this design. This would be great as an everyday uniform. It feels like such a natural evolution of the original gradient design.
  9. Taking the ISS-eye view of @SFGiants58's Sox concepts, I think the red/black Project 32 design is probably still my favorite. Though perhaps its not the direction I would go, I still think it feel like the one that most effectively updates the Sox.
  10. It's way too tough a call on the yellow v. no-yellow front.

    The New York Giants should wear their grey five stripe pants for every game, as they did from 2012-2015. It's a unique look, it makes up for wearing an otherwise plain blue home jersey and takes an all white road uniform out of league already saturated with them. Also this was a good look.
  12. I think it did for a while too (that and being able to run Mike Alstott at the goal line). They could be wonderfully bright to look at. Brilliant scarlet at home with the pewter shining. I loved the all-whites too, especially early in the season.
  13. These were genuine modern classics.

    Or, it was a tribute to how stinking awesome the Beast Wars font is. Fixed it.
  15. Also for the record, "If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?" is one of my all-time favorite pieces of television.
  16. The matching suit lining for the win.
  17. Is there any other than Frank Gorshin? Also the Brooklyn Nets before the Brooklyn Nets.
  18. Given the Chargers current aesthetic would a move towards royal be a way for the Rams to distinguish themselves? Maybe an intermediate color like a lapis? Personally, I like the idea of the Rams actually maintaining something of the duality they have now. Have a blue/white only white uniform paired with a white horned helmet and a blue/gold dark uniform paired with a gold horned helmet.
  19. Given that the Titans are going "Color Rush" here by just wearing white socks, can the NFL drop the charade and permit solid white socks to be worn with dark pants? Speaking for a team that likes to wear dark pants which will remain nameless but rhymes with Schmaints.
  20. Those uniforms had more personality in the sense that the Riddler has more personality than Batman...

    I love how the blue stripes on the white uniform really make the gold lettering pop!
  22. I literally had the Bears black vs. blue argument with my dad when I was 5. I made the same mistake. If you aren’t convinced look at helmets worn in different lighting conditions in the same season. There’s no way George Halas was paying for the team to wear multiple helmets or even repaint them. Again. I lost this exact argument 30 years ago.
  23. This was literally the first argument I can consciously recall. The Bears have indeed always worn navy. However, the proper shade of navy blue has traditionally been impossibly dark and under the right lighting conditions appears black.

    Instant Classic (Uniform Disaster)

    I've always hated the way the horizontal lines are significantly thinner than the vertical lines. To me, its always looked clunky as heck.

    EVERY TOM BRADY SUPER BOWL. My contempt for that turn of the century collection of piping and bad fonts burns with the fire of a thousand suns.
