  1. Well, this statement will become false this upcoming season...
  2. Yea, this does seem awkward and tone deaf. It'd be like if the OKC Thunder wore Sonics throwbacks.
  3. It's for July 7th. 1969 is the year they're "turning back" to.
  4. Word in the street: Nats-Royals doing a Turn Back the Clock night in July. Nats will be dressing as Expos. Pinwheel cap.
  5. Word in the street: Mariners going to be Seattle Pilots vs Orioles (and O's wearing throwbacks for 1969) Mariners wearing "1987" vs Astros who'll be wearing "1989" throwbacks Pirates wearing gold crown pillbox caps vs Phillies Astros will be wearing a hat for 50th anni of Apollo 11
  6. "Dark enough that they can still sell navy merchandise. Dark enough to stand separate from the throwback gear, so the Brewers can still sell all the throwback merch they want. But still bolder, more vibrant, more blue than the boring navy." This is from me knowing what New Era has availability wise for cap fabrics so what you're proposing is using Dark Royal which is essentially Dodger Blue for reference (Dark Royal is what Dodgers and Rangers use for their cap colors). With that, the Dark Royal wouldn't really match with the current Light Navy merchandise. Might not seem like a big diff based off the pantone swatches you posted but go look at a Dodgers hat in person and it'll be a lot more evident that it's def not close enough to match with Light Navy. So in short my point is for this concept, it'd ideally would just have the Brewers hypothetically making a full switch to Dark Royal across the board (not just for the caps) and rolling out new matching merchandise/uniforms since pairing this hypothetical Dark Royal with the current Light Navy wouldn't go together.
  7. Chris Negron (twitter name) posted this photoshop on the Jags' tweet. So simple and would have made these a lot less plain Jane looking. I still would have hated the yoga pants but this would have had much more life to them.
  8. ^ it is actually a little "off" if you look closely when you get your Lids order in. The OG hat has the entire "cap" on the Barrel Man in tonal light navy whereas the Lids remake has the cap in metallic gold w/ light navy outline.
  9. Looking for NBA uniform template for Illustrator. Preferably would have all the different collar options with the template as well.
  10. The white panel caps are officially part of their On-Field cap assortment now. Whereas before in 2015/16, they were just one-off "special event" hats.
  11. I freaking hate those stupid alt's that just have the Spur logo on them. Just awful.
  12. Forgot about that guy! He is not. Curious to see how much of a "new uniforms" Spurs will actually end up having though. Are they going to "Buccaneers" this or just make slight modifications?
  13. Hasn't been announced yet to public. I know I'm just a random poster on here but have some reliable sauces. Just wait for it.
  14. Sorry, I've been busy w/ work and stuff lol so haven't had much time lately to play around on Illustrator for this thread. I'll hopefully get back to it soon. I do appreciate seeing that some people have been keeping an eye on this thread! Thanks for the love!
  15. Up next: Houston Texans Notable changes: - Switched to white helmets - Made the red jersey the primary home w/ standard white road and navy as the alternate I think the Texans have a solid uniform set and did a good job in retrospect rolling out a set that has so far proven to be timeless as it's aged well in most of people's eyes. It could use a little sprucing up to me. To start off, I kept the basic template in tact w/ the jersey font and shoulder yokes basically the same. Next, I wanted to make a uniform set for a team called the Texans a lot more "Texan" feeling lol so used the "alt logo" (http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/15774732006/Houston_Texans/2006/Alternate_Logo) that's listed in the logo timeline and added the Texas state outline shape onto the shoulder sleeves. Updated the side striping on the pants to mimic the Texas state flag. C&C appreciated
  16. Up next: San Diego Chargers Notable changes: - All white helmet w/ white face masks now - Made the powder blue jersey as the primary home jersey again - Reduced navy to being an accent color as it's really just in the logos - White road jersey w/ powder blue pants as the primary set and white pants as an option for white out look - I do have them w/ a navy jersey alt but in this universe, it'd be worn sparingly - Ditched the custom number font in place of a more traditional block font C&C appreciated
  17. No love from anyone on the Titans so circling back to the Patriots. Switching out the grey/silver for white to go for the retro look. Updated the number font.

    **TEMPLATES**

    Any new NBA uniform templates for Illustrator someone could post?
  19. Up next: Tennessee Titans Decided to get rid of the flaming thumb tack logo and use the Sword "T" alt logo as the new primary logo and helmet logo. Kept the base colors of uniforms basically the same. Main updates to jerseys are getting rid of the shoulder yoke template and going with diff colored sleeve caps. Don't know anything about Tennessee so wasn't until recently that it dawned on me that the circle w/ 3 stars part of the Titans logos is referring to the state flag. So as part of the sleeve striping design, I used the circle w/ 3 stars portion from the Titans logo as part of the sleeve design. I think it's a cool feature as it's not just a blatant state flag reference as it still ties back to the team logo; even though it clearly is a state flag reference (if that makes sense lol). Basically what I mean is that if you knew nothing about Tennessee flag, the circle w/ 3 stars wouldn't seem that random to you since the circle is part of the Titans logo. It flows cohesively. The navy jersey serves as the home with the powder blue being the alternate jersey.
  20. @WSU151 suggestion on what font to switch to?
  21. Up next: New England Patriots Taking the Pats back to their old school look with the shoulder striping. Kept the helmet the same along with the general navy jersey/gray pants for the home and white jersey/navy pants for the road. I actually don't mind the Pats' current Navy/Gray/Red palette in general. Really the main gripe I have w/ the current uniform set is the piping/side panels on the jerseys. Added in a red alt jersey as a nod to the past w/ a modern twist using the current colors.
