Which cookie-cutter template (any sport) do you actually like?

Recommended Posts

We know there's dozens of awful ones out there, but which templates (any sport, any era) that were worn by numerous teams were actually up your alley? 

 

My vote:

Image result for uncw basketball 2017

 

Image result for kennesaw state basketball

I always thought this one was pretty tasteful as far as piping is concerned:

The Adidas templates for soccer usually looked great, especially for Chelsea.

The best one was the one with the collar, which I think was 2008-09

The current Chelsea kits just don't look right without the Adidas stripes.

This was technically a template that Russell offered in its catalog, though I only ever recall Georgia Tech wearing it:

My favorite, at the high school basketball level anyways, was when Nike offered the Duke style about 4 years ago. Almost every team that went with it looked 100 times better than their previous looks, the only failures happened when they changed their colors to something more popular (i.e. gray to anthracite).

Nike Mach Speed and the cut worn by most Nike schools in the early 2000's, like by Ohio State in 2006.

Austin Peay also wore that template (jersey only, not the pants).

That's kind of like "We want piping, but we only have three minutes to make a mockup."

UNC-Wilmington looks fantastic. Of course, with that color scheme I can't imagine them looking bad.

I guess I'm the only one who doesn't like the Duke template on anyone except Duke. It was ruined for me when it became the basketball equivalent of the Denver Broncos template, overused by so many teams for so long.

I like this one . . . minus South Carolina's camo shorts.

I also remember other teams wearing this template, but I don't remember which ones.  I was disappointed to see it on other teams because it was Maryland's signature (?) look during the late 90s - early 00s.

Here's my favorite. A simple design that some teams add a little bit of flavor to with sublimation. If the team has a good color scheme this template looks great.
