  1. They should absolutely use a retro style. I propose something simple like this:
  2. It's a tough color to get right across mediums. I thought the 2009 Oilers throwbacks were great, but even here you can tell the shades of blue aren't exactly the same. That being said, the Chargers should NEVER wear a powder blue helmet. Stick to white. Powder blue requires extra attention to color balance, due to how light it can be in contrast to dark colors, but how heavy it can be on its own or paired with a color like yellow. That's why the Royals' and Rangers' powder blue caps don't look great. The color balance is thrown off. In those cases, solid blue caps work better. Likewise, the Chargers need a white helmet to balance the colors properly.
  3. Isn't this still "light blue" compared to St Louis' pale royal blue?
  4. Winnipeg does. But I don't think that should prevent the future Nordiques from using powder blue.
  5. Oddly enough today is the anniversary of "the dress," showing just how much lighting can play tricks with our eyes.
  6. Definitely dark gray. A simple saturation adjustment on the photo usually helps reduce the effect of indoor lighting:
  7. Those uniforms are dark gray.
  8. The Twins wear their white uniforms for every home ST game.
  9. I guess they'll have to use Philly Frenetic instead.
  10. The Bucs should own orange. Bold orange (not creamsicle) jerseys in the Florida sun would look great. It's a great opportunity to own the color.
  11. The Jets need the primary logo as shoulder patches on the alternate sweater. And I'd prefer that to have a tie down collar as well. Otherwise their uniforms are perfect.
  12. I once proposed the Orioles use the cartoon logo on the cap while wearing the realistic bird as a sleeve patch and I thought I was going to be killed. People hated the concept because they couldn't accept two different representations of the same thing. I still think it's a fantastic idea. It has that old-timey baseball aesthetic of using a very detailed logo as the sleeve patch and a different logo on the cap.
  13. There are a few throwback logos.
  14. Not all the ST caps follow that format. I guess my use of "secondary logo" was misleading, as I meant it to mean secondary as in a second logo, rather than necessarily referring to secondary vs primary logo designations. Some of the caps use secondary/alternate logos, as ST caps often do. Some use the standard cap logos, only now they have another logo within.
  15. ST caps feature cap logos containing secondary logos within. For example, the crown logo within the KC on the cap for the Royals. New material as well, as seen above. Supposed to be available for retail in February.
  16. As a Minnesota fan I'm upset that they continue to delay a third jersey. Should've been this season, but it was scrapped. Can't do next season because of the Winter Classic, and apparently can't do the following season because of league-wide throwbacks. Can't they just release a third jersey in the same season as the WC or throwback jersey?
  17. Regarding the Islanders 90's branding fiasco, I highly recommend reading this book if you haven't already:
  18. Colored helmets with white sweaters can bring some fun color balance to some college hockey uniforms. I don't think it should become the norm in the NHL, but it would be cool to see a team or two use colored helmets on the road. Preds or Pens in yellow, Knights in gold, Stars in green.
  19. If the Rangers want to be a blue team and a red team at the same time, the white jersey needs to have red lettering trimmed in blue. That would provide appropriate color balance when wearing a red cap or a blue cap.
  20. Quirks I love: -Numbers on sleeves of baseball jerseys, but only for a few teams who have a history of it: Phillies (currently), Tigers, White Sox, Athletics. -The mismatched design of the Minnesota Vikings jerseys, as mentioned earlier in this thread. -The mismatched shades of blue between the helmets and jerseys of the Los Angeles Rams. -Detroit Tigers navy/white at home, navy/orange on the road, as mentioned earlier in this thread. Likewise, South Carolina baseball has traditionally worn garnet/white as the home team and black/white as the road team for College World Series appearances and I love it. -Philadephia Flyers contrasting nameplates. -"Nebraska Football - A Winning Tradition" patch. -I LOVED when the Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres wore socks with far more stripes than were featured on the jerseys. Quirks I dislike: -Unnecessary striping inconsistencies, particularly the extra yellow space on the LSU football pants (and Green Bay, I believe) or the mismatched color pattern on the old Buffalo Sabres white sweaters (blue and yellow stripes are flip-flopped between the sleeve and hem). -The Dallas Cowboys.
  21. Looking at the white jersey, all I can notice is how sharp the point of the tail on the script is. The outlines really emphasize it.
  22. The Rangers are still planning to mix and match caps at home. The blue cap will still be paired with the white uniforms on occasion.
