  1. Seeing the Iron uniform on a player makes me think the pants should have been grey. I get the no nonsense look and vibe they were going for so the logo-less helmet works for me, but the rest does look quite drab.

     

    The part that blows my mind is that even with its shortcomings the set still works because it continues the theme of unique identities within the templated uniform design.

  2. For the uniforms having somewhat of a template, they all manage to have their own identity. That’s a plus. I also respect some of the creative risks they took to help each team stand out.

     

    Some work better than others, but I don’t see any outright messes here. Maybe San Antonio might have one too many things going on, but it still manages to look decent. I’d say there is room for improvement, but not bad for their first run.

  3. I really wish the piping on the sleeves was thicker, or was higher up on the sleeve like it is on the last set. That way the colors pop way more. That pretty much solves any issues I have with the set. Other than the blue being for BP which is a bummer.

     

    Im hoping that piping issue is something they tweak moving forward. Seems like teams have freedom to make small alterations like that.

  4. I love it! The cap logo is more impressive than the primary, but the primary is solid. I actually like the laces because it calls back to the original logo, and combines with the last logo’s Miami nightlife colors.

     

    I don’t get why they teased the uniforms if the reveal is actually tomorrow but whatever. The number font looks pretty good though. That logo reveal video was pretty dope as well. I think they nailed this part, and hopefully the uniforms are good too.

  5. I love it. Yeah it kinda looks like Ultimate Warrior, but it’s very clearly a bird and the letter M. Clever.

     

    It also has a retro feel to it that I love. This could’ve been something created in the 70s that managed to stick around to 2019. This will fit right in with the rest of the league and its other minimalist/timeless logos.

    Yeah, I don’t see this as “another red and blue team” at all.  

    Ditto. While technically blue and red, nightclub neon blue and red aren’t exactly in the same ballpark as drab patriotism blue and red.

     

    Blue and red.

    I don't know what other teams are doing with the hype machine over their city jerseys, but the Miami Heat are certainly doing a bang up job.  Nice video intro for the city jerseys.

    I know the red/black/yellow/white has its fans, but this should be the look going forward. I’m excited and I’m not even a fan of the team. Top notch stuff.

  8. I never knew the Jets name and identity was inspired by the Jet setting age, and I’m super bummed that the team is totally gonna lean into military stuff now.

     

    I didn’t have an issue with the military imagery, but learning there was something more interesting to draw from that won’t be touched is deflating. I could see a modern 60s inspired Jets logo package in my head and that blows a fighter jet out of the water.

    I don't see how that's neat.  You don't see it unless you're actually on the court - and even then you'd have to squint.  Every single last aspect of this seems forced, and I don't see how as a whole, it honors Magic.  Maybe if it had his image in a sweatback design, or something depicting how he rips off low-income people in his community, 

     

    Does adding "Los Angeles" to it have anything to do with Magic Johnson?

     

    Maybe replacing that with "Magic", so it read "Magic Lakers" would be better, except it still sucks, and would be protested by Orlando.

    I didn't notice it until I did. I found it neat. So that’s how. Everything else you mentioned? Spot on.

    Lakers Unveil Magic Johnson Tribute Uniforms

    Lakers-New-City-Uniform-Unveiled.jpg

    The Los Angeles Lakers tonight officially unveiled their new “City Edition” uniforms four weeks after they first leaked out. For their “City Edition” series, instead of focusing on L.A., the Lakers have chosen to instead honour important players in their franchise’s history, […]

    The pinstripes read 3x5xShowtime. That’s kinda neat actually.

  11. The Clippers are really nailing the city uniforms. I wish the same could be said for their identity as a whole, but these one offs are really good.

     

    I’m not sure where the LA font was pulled from, but the Jersey is definitely a nod to the LA Stars of the ABA.

    what im surprised to see about these 4 new options is that the Brief (or chosen direction taken by the design agency) doesn't offer a new idea— it's still revolving around a marlin infused with an M, just in different styles. it's not a great combination of ideas if you ask me. you can see what they're going for, trying to fuse the relationship between the elements better in the way the fins sort of form pat of the letter or fit in its negative space, but i'd also bet that the design team feels frustrated that the execution doesn't live up to the vision— its just not quite there and i beleive its because the idea is so forced. i'd love to see something new. how about a lone marlin? or a lone M? the options are just kind of repeating the same composition mistakes as the previous logo in new ways and the only message or voice i really see in it right now it "south beach", or some sort of play off of the alternate heat uniforms. and again, thats not a great direction for this team. you know what Inter Miami really nailed in their logo? a true Miami style. it's more MiMO (Miami Modern) than Deco and it works beautifully. The Marlins seem to be struggling with who they want to be and what they want to express in an authentic, relatable manner.  

    I’m a big fan of MiMO architecture, and that would’ve been a brilliant way to go for the Marlins. They were almost there with the current logo, but you’re right about the Marlin and the M clashing.

     

    The M is also a bit heavier where MiMO design seems a bit thinner and lighter. I wish they would take what is there and make some adjustments instead of throwing the whole thing away.

  13. I don’t mind the purple jerseys at all. It’s not the Lakers per se, but as a design it’s not bad. That said it not being the Lakers is a big deal so I get the hate.

     

    I know that NBA/Nike wanted the statement jerseys to be a little more out there, but I don’t see why it couldn’t just have been a purple version of the gold. Purple could very much be considered out there as the team has demoted it to a third color behind gold and white. Thus making it more special and rare when worn.

  14. I was a big fan of the Art Deco look for this team so I’m really hoping that leak is the real deal. Keeping the nightlife vibe is key in my opinion so that has to be pink or salmon. I think I’ll be really bummed if it’s just red. Fingers crossed.
