  1. That was my first thought when I saw these. Dialing it back to an original-inspired look with just enough modernization to set it apart. Well done all around.

    Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Better than the old set - Teal over black is best. But get some gold trim around the black numbers and black trim on the white ones.

    NHL 2017-18

    I was at Fenway in 2010 and was sitting midway up on the third base line behind the goal when Sturm scored in OT to win it. Viewing angle was meh, but you were fairly close to the rink. Gillette in 2016 was better viewing angle (was at the 15 yard line, so looking at the corner), but much further away from the rink.

    Full uniform. I can't believe how good these look. This needs to be their new full time set.

    Full release and they're gorgeous.

    Every time I see those renders of the new USMNT kit, I can't help but see this:

    Because it's nothing more than glorified marketing speak and an unnecessary complication of wording.

    After years upon years of thoroughly trashing the Pooh Bears, I had an epiphany a few years ago. Now I own 2 of them, customized (Rob DiMaio 19 w/ Bruins 75th anniversary patch and PJ Stock 42)

    Given the thickness of the white hem stripe, they could emulate that on the socks and I think the greater contrast between it and the thin red stripe would make the socks look much better.

    Reminds me way too much of those old yellow Newcastle kits when they got relegated in 2009. Gggh.

    2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Did you forget 1998 to 2001 where are primary away color was red? US supporters were clamoring for a red kit after the 2002 World Cup set came out and started a blue trend that continued to 2009 when Nike went with that terrible anthracite kit. There was the limited edition DTOM kit worn in Hartford for the send-off match in 2006 and the fans snapped them up in no time. Then the red alternate to the 2010 set was released in 2011 and fans loved it as well. The 2012 home shirt was the red/white hooped "Waldo" kits and then there were the 2014 bomb pops that were primarily red. Whick is to say that Nike is all over the place with US kit design.

    I know around here we (the Revolution fanbase) were not particularly fond of the 2010 home kit when it came out because we felt they were trying to emulate the look of the Patriots, especially with the addition of silver which had never been a part of the primary kit color scheme at any point in their existence.

    Yeah, I did think of Portland when I saw the clash. That said, compare these two: The Revs' jersey just looks incomplete in comparison. It's missing the red trim on the right sleeve and the red sleeve on the left. Add in a navy collar and you'd have a real winner there.

    If only that's what the Revs actually wore. what could have been. That Feyenoord jersey is a true harlequin with each and every element an inverted color of the opposite side. It's perfect.

    Best looking college hockey jerseys/uniforms?

    As a fellow UML guy, I think the last revision was a huge upgrade (particularly with regard to the name & number font), but the wordmark on the chest is holding them back from looking great. And the Rowdy alternate logo isn't much better. I liked the vertically arched "Lowell" workmark set. Would love to see them adapt that to the current UA template they are using.

    These are for the upcoming IIHF World Championships to be held during the NHL playoffs. Warrior branding inside the collar above the laces.

    If you're first thought seeing this isn't "Minions", you're doing it wrong.

    Yeah, I was one of the people on top of this when we discovered it Friday afternoon. One of our members saw a twitter post from ESPN with the Bangladeshi Premier Cricket League standings and noticed that one of the team logos looked awfully familiar. As one of the people involved in the design process for the Midnight Rider's logo (it was a collaborative and iterative efforts between five of us), I got a real kick out of this. So completely random.

    Here's a closer look at the socks, from when I was at the Revs' unveiling last week: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0PQ38hV0pCmTGVRSE5NeFFNakk/view?usp=sharing That's the first I've seen of the trees on the Revolution's socks! That's a really cool detail!
