    Can they just get rid of the bone ones now?

    One small step for man...

     

    That's all.  A small step.  It's a decent jersey, but it'll take more to fix the whole set.

  2. Words fail me.

     

    You could make something (slightly) better in a shorter amount of time by removing the letters and adding some collar trim.  It takes a certain talent to fail this spectacularly.

  3. The glaring inconsistencies ruin the Cowboys' set.  The white jersey set is fine design-wise (although K-State does it better, fight me), but the blue one sucks and the three (four?) different shades of blue drive me crazy and so do the shiny pants and the black on the sleeve stripes and it's all very frustrating.  I'm a staunch traditionalist, but some things should just be left in the past.

     

     

     

    (Yes, I'm aware they made the pants less shiny last year, don't @ me.)

  4. I DIED laughing when I saw these, not because of the design but because I had LITERALLY* just been doing research into how many college teams wore that font back in the '90s.  (For the uninitiated, it was a Reebok thing.)

     

     

    *ok, not literally, it was a couple of days ago

  5. Apologies if someone's already made something like this, I haven't been keeping up with the thread.

     

    The way I see it, here are the teams who could potentially redesign their uniforms in the next three-four years and are thus prime targets for ditching TV numbers:

     

    Miami (although any redesign would probably draw heavily from their throwback)

    Buffalo??? (maybe they decide that the retro look isn't working out)

    Baltimore

    Houston?

    Denver (please base them off of the Color Rush, thanks bye)

    Philadelphia???

    Washington

    Atlanta (gotta stay hip every five years)

    New Orleans? (see Miami)

    Arizona (if my own team drops TV numbers, I will jump off a building)

    LA Rams? (they seem pretty committed to lunacy, so I don't know)

    San Francisco???

    Seattle?

     

    Dunno if I see it becoming terribly widespread, but one is already too many.

  6. "After years of waiting

    Nothing came

    And you realize you were looking in

    Looking in the wrong place"

     

     

    In all seriousness, though, they are better than the last set.  No side panels plus no drop shadow is a big plus; but they feel very uninspired, the shoulder stripes are a bit too garish, and the lack of TV numbers is frustrating.  I love TV numbers, and there's no reason on Earth not to use them unless maybe you're 2010s Texas A&M.

  7. I've been working on this for the past two months.  Without nothing to do and no baseball to watch, I decided to re-create the uniforms of every World Series since 1995.  That snowballed into every World Series since 1969, and then every single playoff series since then.  I present fifty years, 256 images, and over 1,500 games (including unplayed placeholders) worth of baseball history.

    A few notes so I don't get asked about these:

     

     - 100% graphical fidelity was never my intention.  There are plenty of small issues with the colors, outlines, etc., but all I really wanted to do was basically say "Hey, here's what Team X wore for this game," and you can fill in the rest with your uniform knowledge.

     - Even so, I admit that maybe the best-of-seven designs are a bit small.  I can upload them to somewhere other than Flickr if you want better quality.

     - I created the game matchups in OpenOffice Drawing and assembled them into the game grids in Autodesk Sketchbook.  A lot of the problems here stem from copying things into Sketchbook.

     - I'm 99.9% certain about the hat/jersey/pants combination for each game (socks might be kinda eh), but things like incorrect game numbers and little errors may still be out there.  If you notice anything afoot, let me know.

     - The front numbers for every team are from their WAR leader for that season (per Baseball Reference).  If a team has two different front numbers for the same year, tell me and I'll fix it.

     - If anyone wants to make a better version with their own, higher quality template, you are more than welcome to do so.  You can use my designs as a reference for the game-by-game matchups.

    They dropped the stripe from the pants 2(?) years ago so they could have the navy and yellow alt without adding more pants

    Did they?  Shows how much attention I pay to pants.

     

    Royal-and-yellowify their regular set, make some tweaks, and you're done.  I'm split between the current "M" logo and the BiG, though.  Put the BiG on the sleeve and keep the M on the hat.

    Full look of all the uniforms together.  The blacks stick out like a sore thumb due to the inclusion of volt and the whites look off because of the lack of yellow.  Still wondering if they'll have a white helmet or not:

    If this is the best of what Nike's creativity department has, then maybe we're finally scraping the bottom of the barrel.

     

    Grade: bleh.

    I love the idea. The head looks like an alien though. It needs some more facial features to make it look like a wildcat.

    I get what you're saying.  I had to do something simple, so I just put in the eyes.  If you've got any better ideas, feel free to let me know.

    Few things I really like, few things I don’t. I’ll start with the negative. The logos lack of color makes it really bland and tough to look at. The one shade of purple is just so...dull. It NEEDS color. I suggest adding gray/silver, K-State’s other color. The uniforms are okay. While I don’t like the template, I’ll overlook that and talk design over all. I love the woodmark* and design, but like the logo the white uni needs another color. Add some outlines maybe? The away is throwback inspired obviously, but maybe the numbers need an outline like the woodmark.

     

    I like the moniker of “Every Man A Wildcat”. I love the look of a logo, and while I think it needs color, it is truly a good logo. The woodmark on the uniforms are fantastic. I think a new template would do wonders for this set. 

     

    Overall, while it has some flaws, this is a good look. 

    Very grateful for the feedback!

     

    I'll make some changes.  Thank you for pointing these things out.

     

    I don't particularly care for silver, but three shades of purple with only white as another color is a little overkill.  I'll mull it over.

     

    *wordmark (sorry, my grammar freak brain had to point that out. :P)

  11. So I was idly watching a The Basketball Tournament game earlier when it occurred to me that, though many universities had alumni teams in the tournament, Kansas State (my favorite U) did not.  So, here's what a hypothetical KSU TBT team should wear!  (Sorry about the crudeness of the logo.  I only know how to use very basic programs.)

     

    Feedback greatly appreciated!

    Well...at least they're tolerable.  I am surprised that, after all the talk about black, it's only on the home collar (and obvious alt).

     

    On the other hand, Virginia Tech and Iowa State have both moved away from UCLA stripes, so maybe this is a (disappoining) trend...
