  1. This is so dumb. If they aren’t selling it anyways, just repurpose the old generic uniforms with the team logos on the front. Or make a limited production, just plop the All Star logo on the front as a script. Why are they wasting a clearly Pacers inspired design on Atlanta?
  2. This is really good! I find the addition of the lighter green unnecessary, but while I did like the nostalgia of the old one it was showing its age. This is sleek and fits with the more soccer-ish WNBA identities. That arch at the bottom looks ready to be flipped vertically to resemble the Sonics arch, and I wouldn’t hate it at all I do find it slightly amusing that they chose to name their main color “Thunder”
  3. I actually love this. The side panels give it a very early 00’s look, an aesthetic that’s practically disappeared from soccer but it’s an era that the revived Earthquakes should be celebrating. That blue is so beautiful it’s a shame they so often use black (and if they continue using this scheme brings them uncomfortably close to CLTFC)
  4. There are other ways to reward individuals for team accomplishments. FWIW, French league and league cup both give out mini-trophies but my preference is medals, as is done in the Olympics and most other competitions outside North America. You receive them right after the game and not months later, maybe after having changed teams. They’re given out by the competition instead of the team, and the officials greeting the losers first is great. Plus the team is actually handed the trophy instead of it being handed out to the owners
  5. Pretty sure you can’t wear a federation logo on an Olympic jersey
  6. I love most of the Timbers kit. Love the callback to the original kit, ditching the white sleeves was the right idea... but it is so disappointing to not see opposing contrasting sleeves and a single color back. Still might be my favourite kit from them.
  7. Thought this was interesting It was already clear they wore whatever they wanted, but I don’t see how not having a primary kit is beneficial to the brand, especially when one of the two kits changes color every two years
  8. IDC what anyone says, the striped sleeve is by far the best option they could have chosen, would have looked amazing with striped socks. The small hoop with the Sox wordmark above it, the one with the full White Sox wordmark, the one with the racing stripe down the arm, and the one with the asymmetrical stripe from neck to sleeve with no batter logo are also better than what they ended up with IMO
  9. San Marino updated its logos with new logos for the federation and national team crest It’s a bit hard to see but there’s hidden S and M in the crest, which combined with the three towers makes it a pretty nice crest. The previous one was just the national emblem inside a roundel, which I appreciated as a kind of non-professionalism kitschy look, but this can stand on its own alongside the rest. Makes sense that they wanted to capitalize on their recent massive success of two consecutive draws after six years with only losses. There’s also new logos for their league and cup.
  10. Sorry, I was thinking of the theme of those jerseys and the Art Deco buildings recalling the prohibition era and Miami Vice look inspired by the TV show, wasn’t really thinking of how it sounded as names for a player owned league. Edited the team names out
  11. The NBA is also inadvertently shooting itself in the foot considering that it is by far the sport where it would be easiest for the players to break away and start their own league, which is occasionally floated out as something the players, already by far in the league where they have the most power, might do. And the strength of their brand might be one of the biggest reasons why they wouldn’t do it. By diluting their brand they’re making the case for the players that people would watch a black and gold Chicago or a Vice colors Miami if the good players played there
  12. FWIW the real new logo leaked. Don’t think the semplification really works in this case, the C just becomes an unnecessary outline and the M Is too narrow. Can’t see it lasting too long, they’re in the process of being sold again and jettisoning a logo the new owners have no attachment to but the fans don’t like because no one likes change is an easy win for an incoming owner
  13. They already are, to a point. PSG is at its 4th PSG x Jordan collection, and next year will have the Jordan brand on its home kit. They’ve been massive sellers and I can’t see them stopping, even though I find the replacing of the Tour Eiffel with the Jumpman distasteful This has been replicated at a lower scale with the adidas humanrace kits, or the Juventus x Palace collection. As long as they sell, they’re evidently successful, which is why Nike is bringing this collab style over to the NBA with the Knicks Kith jersey. I’m not opposed to team brands branching out into street wear, but I’d prefer they’d do it out of the strength of their own brand and motifs instead of lazy collabs, which only appeal hypebeasts, not fans. The 2018 Nigeria Nike kits and collection were a massive hit and sold out pretty much every item, but the patterns weren’t just slapping a logo of another company on it. And they went further outside of the athletic equipment with South Korea and Nigeria 2020, but still maintained the patterns of the shirt
  14. The Charlotte All Star game that was moved had completely different branding than the one that eventually happened, although tbf the new logo system came in between the two. Not like there’s a whole lot you can do with two lines a little graphic on a generic script, especially in Indiana
  15. The color of the downward triangle was also interchangeable in concentration camps, according to the the type of prisoner, the red and pink ones are still used to remember the deceased. Literally any other shape or a triangle in a different direction would be preferable. I’d suggest not ending the sides on a point, instead making it resemble the trapezoid at the top
