    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    i'm in wholehearted agreement of every word of this. the colors are great, so why hide them with so much black? i love the blue jersey, and i think they would have benefits from a blue-brimmed cap, particularly to splash some more color on the all black look. i have to look at this team for 18 games, and i'm mostly going to be aesthetically bored doing so.

    Adidas NHL Throwback Jerseys

    i saw the gretzky one in person at dicks sporting goods yesterday. fabric is similar (not identical) to air knit, too.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    eh. the geographic breakdowns have really shifted a lot. fans move, of course the jets moved (from queens to new jersey), as did the islanders (nassau county to brooklyn and soon back to nassau county). plus, the giants have won four super bowls since the mid-80s, and the jets haven't gotten to one. the rangers won a cup in '94, and the islanders have won one playoff series since then. winning definitely changes that stuff, too. let's put it this way: generally speaking, there's still a good collection of jets fans out here on long island. instead of sharing metlife with the giants, i think the jets should have built a stadium next to citi field. but c'est la vie. there are plenty of rangers fans here. as we've seen from the brooklyn attendance, islanders fan base is primarily here on the island.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    i grew up in this era (yeah, adrian murrell!), so admittedly, both of those looks hold a lot of nostalgia for me. but frankly, i think those would upgrades for both teams. there is zero reason why the giants' color rush unis shouldn't be their roads, and an updated look of that jets set would be lovely to me.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    this is absolutely what they would call it. as far as the video, i have no idea what to expect. and like you said, the video can absolutely take every single viewer in whatever direction they want their mind to go. the couple of things i like that i saw on the wall were different pictures of NY uniforms. when you think about the primary uniforms in the market -- yankees, mets, rangers, islanders, giants, knicks, and even the nets leans very classic-looking -- i think and hope that both the jets and nike understand that if they get too modern and gimmicky, it won't work that well. as i've said earlier in the thread, i'm a big fan of the green helmet look and logo, so i'd love to see that return in some way. i'd expecting the worst and hoping for the best. we shall see.

    Bad Jersey Sightings

    i have so, so many terrible mets jerseys. authentic ones, too. roberto alomar, mo vaughn, derek bell, kaz matsui (two of them). also, ridiculously dumb islanders jerseys (tim connolly, brad isbister). i'm not going to count ones that ended up being bad, (ike davis mets, two mark sanchez jets, five john tavares islanders) because there was strong rationale at the time

    NHL Adidas/Fanatics jerseys- what to get?

    agree with this. i have seen (not worn) nike replicas in person. haven't seen the fanatics replicas in person, but from the product photos online, they look abysmal. $40 extra is a decent chunk of change, but i think it's worth it to just get a nike. as long as we're on the subject, i had one NFL fanatics replica, and i hated it. those run HUGE, so if you size up in nike NFL replicas, don't on fanatics. so my final thoughts on the subject would be: NHL - fanatics are passable-to-actually pretty good, but send it out for authentic customization. NBA - go with nike NFL - go with nike

    NHL Adidas/Fanatics jerseys- what to get?

    i have adidas authentics (isles home and third) and a fanatics replica (isles road). first off, if you're going to buy yourself a fanatics jersey, do yourself a favor and DO NOT get a player. send it out to someone who does authentic lettering (exclusive pro sports is a good one). that'll class up the jersey, because like others have said, screen printed tackle is garbage. adidas authentics are solid (if you're a jersey head: they're nowhere near the quality of reebok edge 2.0s, which were similar to CCM authentics). they're lightweight, crests are high quality, and considering the price, they're relatively affordable. unless fanatics is running a 30% off sale (which is how i got my replica), spend the extra dough and get the adidas. that said, for a regular replica, fanatics' NHL jerseys are good. i wear jerseys a lot after work at night to bum around the house, and i honestly kind of like the flexible crest. the material is thicker than reebok's replicas and adidas' current authentics, so they're pretty sturdy. no maker's mark above the nameplate, which some people like. if you're washing them and having the crest fall apart, i think you're washing them wrong. wash cold, hang dry. that should be your protocol for all your jersey washing needs. on sizing, truthfully is varies so much on your own body type, so it's hard to say. i find that my fanatics replica fits true to how i like jerseys to fit, which leave me with a little room to move around. i'm 6', 210 lbs, but athletic build (broaded shoulders, smaller waist) and i like to wear XLs in most of my sports clothes. in adidas authentic, that means 54 fits well, 56 fits and gives more room. in fanatics, that's an XL. to @Michael Bolton: why should i change, he's the one who sucks?!?! but in all seriousness, if large NFL/NBA jerseys swim on you, then i'd get a medium.

    NHL Third Jersey Calendar (Updated 11/11)

    if you want to add to it, islanders wore their thirds last night (nov 1) and will wear them again on nov 13 and 24.

    NHL Refresh Series - "Desecrating" the NHL

    die hard islanders fan here, and i love what you did on both versions their concept. i'm a fan of the royal (i like it more, but also because the nassau county flag/seal is orange and royal blue, thus the basis of the colors), but the navy primary sets look amazing, too. well done!

    Future Retired Number Banner Concepts (NHL Added)

    this is a great concept. just my two cents on the teams i root for: while it looked like a sure thing last january, now it'll be a cold day in hell before the islanders ever retire john tavares' number. the mets have a VERY high litmus test for player retired numbers (usually only reserved for franchise-defining guys who also are in the hall of fame: seaver and piazza). they'll break the HOF rule for david wright, but reyes doesn't stand a chance. as for the nets, don't think either carter or lopez fit the bill.

    NY Islanders Adidas Alt Redo

    i really like that last script one. the only thing i'd do is pick one or the other: shoulder yoke or patches. it feels kinda crammed in up there. and if you're going patches with no contrasting yoke, then i'd mess around with something a little new (maybe the stand alone LI silhouette?)

    New York Islanders New Third Uniform Leaks

    so the isles were giving away shirts featuring the new helmet script at their prospect game this week, and the t-shirts were navy. so i mocked up the rumored third, but on a navy jersey. think it would kind of work (excuse the execution in MS paint, i'm not a designer):
