3 completely different brands inside of 1 decade has to be a record.

I'm a bit surprised that one of the big 4 pro sports teams used cyberpunk colors for their new primary uniforms, and that everything fits organically.

Not only are the logos well designed, the overall colors were well chosen, the tropical secondary colors are just right for that region in Miami. And on top of all that, the script is a nod to very early team history, which is another really cool feature. If they can make this whole scheme work as well as it does, the jersey designers deserve a round of applause. 👏👏👏👏👏

The more I see of the new logos/colors, the more I'm starting to warm up to them.  Hopefully the jerseys aren't as plain as that Instagram leak makes them look.

I like everything (for the most part) except the slate grey.. It just muddies up the look imo and adds nothing.. It just looks like there was an issue with the blue in that area or something..

That's definitely the team store and matches up with what I've been told. Looks legit. The stripes/pipping seem to be lost in the crappy quality of the pic.

That shade of blue looks fantastic. Everything else about these is incredibly boring. No front numbers, no collar or placket piping, no sleeve patch. The wordmark doesn't even use the marlin on the M. There's nothing. They make a big stink about their "colores" and they barely even use them in any meaningful or interesting way.

Those look the the generic ones that go on sale to the public. Would be nice to have a front number or something

Exactly. "Our colores" but let's go with minimal piping, a black wordmark and a black on black alt. Considering the blue jersey is most probably a BP one only, the actual game uniforms feel drab as hell...

Can't really tell with the photo quality, but to me it doesn't look like there is a road gray in that pic? And are they doin the Texas Ranger thing with no team nickname on the home jersey?

I get that I'm in phone and the photo is low-res, but I see a plain white jersey with a plain black wordmark. And we've seen from the teaser images that the white jersey uses black numbers. So what we've got is a uniform that, from any distance, is basically devoid of color, and a marketing campaign that puts all its emphasis on color. Par for the course from the Marlins.

 

Anyway, here's to six years of the Concepts Forum finding a thousand different ways to implement this better than the team actually will.

I'd say the road gray should be a carbon copy of the home white. Piping and wordmark are consistent on the home and black jerseys...

I think in this case it’s a good idea. As with Texas, the location is a better sell than the nickname.   They are branding themselves for the city, so that’s what should be on the home jerseys. 

 

Having said that, plenty of people will probably flock to the color jerseys so there will be plenty of marlins wordmarks around.

There will be one, but they might never wear it except for the all star game.  I don’t keep track but I think for the last rebrand they rarely wore the grays.  

But there will be gray jerseys and for sure gray pants to wear with Road colors

The new logo doesn't work on the jersey imo.  Would like to see the blue jersey have a wordmark in it's place

Was just thinking... the Marlins might have been a good team to bring back the blue road uniform.  Make it a little lighter than the blue in their logo, but that black+orange/red/salmon/whatever wordmark would look pretty good against it.  They'd still be able to wear the black alt with those pants.

For what it’s worth...

 

The guy who posted this on IG wrote in the comments that his pic is pretty low quality and that The Colores™️ on the jerseys are much brighter in person.

The Marlins.com website has the new colors and the main article has a rendering of the home jersey.
