Is that a wishbone collar on the back??

Nah, just a pucker caused by the embroidery of the NBA logo.

My one beef with the Pacers' new logo is the fact that they tweaked the striped ball in the state outline secondary logo, but kept it the same in the primary.  I assume they didn't want to pay the fabled $500K logo change fee, and will change it down the line.  But in the interim, it's annoying to have two versions of their signature graphic element in the same brand package.

Thank goodness haha. 

 

Also the back of the armholes doesn't look bad here to me.

I'm REALLY going to have to get used to Nike's stupid armhole stripes.

I think I understand what the Pacers were going for, but as much as I want to like them, it's just alright. There's a lot of good elements by themselves, they just don't mesh well together. I don't hate them, but I don't love them either.

This looks like NCAA team from late 50's/early 60's with modern touch.

 

Sounds like Indiana to me.

Overall I like the new Indy set, with main exception being the yellow/blue combo on the trim.

 

I think the road jersey would be way more beautiful with just a solid yellow stripe on the arm trim and home with a solid blue stripe.

 

Rest of it is great, I'm really digging the Indiana Pacers in full on the jersey, it's different.

the round logo is the new "global logo"

The font in the wordmarks does not match the uniforms or "global" marks. That's just stupid.

These are very interesting -- nobody on here or whom I've talked to elsewhere seems to agree on which elements are good and which ones are bad. 

 

Personally, I'm right in the middle....I really like some parts, and I strongly dislike others. 

 

Good:

-Yellow is emphasized more than white, which is how it should be

-The wordmarks are clean and classic, yet interesting and unique now to the Pacers

-The collar and armhole trim is simple, matching the clean and classic aesthetic

 

Bad:

-The side panels are TERRIBLE -- I really do appreciate the significance of the cornrows, but the solid colors at the top of the jerseys' side panels and the bottom of the shorts' side panels look wildly out of place

-The negative space on the shorts' side panels where the logo is placed is awkward and poorly shaped

-For as much as I like the emphasis on yellow, especially on the Icon Edition, there isn't enough contrast because the wordmarks and numerals are so dense

-The wordmarks and numerals on the fronts of the jerseys are placed way too high

 

The colors are great, the fonts are fine, and these are certainly unique, but all things considered these are just okay....could've been worse, could've been better.

That Pacers look is hot garbage.  Michigan meets Marquette.  Hate it.

I like the Marquette-style sides for the Pacers, but not digging the double wordmark. Stick to Indiana on the navys and Pacers on the whites and adjust from there and they would've hit it out of the park

I thought teams can use custom NOB fonts now but I guess not....same old stock 4 or 5 NOB fonts...

Really happy to hear Marquette got called up to the NBA.

This is exactly what I was thinking. It really reminds me of Marquette's new uniforms, not to say that's a bad thing, but it's the first thought that came to my mind

I really like what the Pacers did here. The side panels have this interesting mix of the pinstripes in the middle and the Flo-Jo stripes at the top and bottom. It's also the cornrows concept as well.

 

It's a bit harsh at first, but it comes together, especially on a player.

The new Pacers jerseys, especially the road, look absolutely awful.

 

The idea had potential. But the execution leaves something to be desired. It needs a major adjustment to work well.
