I've always been a fan. The fact was that the Florida Marlins really hadn't been a teal team since 2003. So I never saw it as the team ditching teal. I saw it as the team ditching black, white, and silver.

I'm also a fan of art deco design. So the Marlins' new look appeals to that as well.

I still don't like the script and HATE the number font, but I like the logo and the color scheme'a pretty sharp (though their original was better)

Hate them. Normally a uniform grows on me slowly, but these I despise. I thought the Marlins had one of the nicer sets in the league before they switched. They went a little blakc-heavy towards the end, but still a nice set.

Overall, I like em. I really like the home whites. I don't like the black jersey, because I don't like the white piping. I can't get past that.

And I agree with BBVT. I love the grey jerseys, that's their best of the set. It's a shame they never wear them. This uniform manages to look subdued yet is still is unique and vibrant.

I have an unpopular opinion that I have enjoyed all the MLB overhauls so far. Miami Marlins really captured the spirit of Miami in what they did and they show off some city pride. I like the orange too.

I think they're nice. I can't say I have the same love for the grey as you guys do, but the whites are beautiful, as are the orange hats.

I HATED them at first, but I've slowly warmed up to the orange cap- to the point that I even bought one. It's too bad they never wear that or the grey jersey.

I still think that teal and orange would have the way to go, though.

The whites and greys are ok. Don't like the black tops. I'd like to see them mix in that blue jersey that was used by the first pitch throwers from earlier this season.

I think they're every bit as bad as they were at the unveiling. The obvious answer is "they should have went back to aqua." I think the current logo is atrocious. Still, they were trying to be outlandish, but failed miserably. If you're going to be "out there" with a bunch of colors, you don't go with a freaking black hats and single-color black piping, and use black jerseys for 75% of your games. They missed a bunch of opportunities. Emphasizing the orange and maybe the light blue, and using the black only sparingly would go a long way to improve the set. The wordmarks aren't terrible, but the number font is pretty bad. These aren't the worst things to ever see a major league field, but they're not in the top half of the league today.

The gray jerseys I like but don't see the light of day anymore.

The orange helmet I like but never even saw regular season action.

The overall look I can accept, but ignoring two elements of uniform I like is hard for me to really support the look.

Ideally, I'd want them to wear orange hats, undershirts, and socks at home and use the orange alt primarily as a home alternate. Keep the black hat as an alternate, and keep on doing what they're doing with the black jersey and the gray jersey. The gray jersey was easily the weakest of the set IMO, and I'm glad that they've basically decided to use the black jersey as their road uni.

Thought they were kinda circusy looking originally with all the colors and all but honestly, I think their uniforms are a few tweaks from being not just respectable but even a modern classic like swapping teal or aqua for light blue, making the orange more coral or reddish-orange, getting rid of the yellow and having a realistically abstract looking marlin like this:

Does anyone know why the Marlins have decided to stop wearing their Grey Jersey altogether? I have been extremely interested in knowing for a really long time now. I do agree that their Grey jersey is actually not too bad but you know what, I think it is really cool that there's one team in the Majors that doesn't wear a Grey jersey. Every team wears grey. I know that it is a baseball tradition and I hope that doesn't change but in my opinion, it would be nice if there were a few teams that did things a little different and actually used a non-grey road jersey. One more thing, the lighter blue Marlins jersey that I have seen on this site before. Is that part of their rotation? If it isn't, it should be. It's a decent jersey.

There's still things I would tweak - "Marlins" wordmark at home, orange caps/helmets/undershirts only, sans-serif numbers that actually resemble the wordmark font - but overall, in a league full of dull uniforms, red/white/blue, and navy, at least the Marlins actually tried to create a vibrant and unique look, so I have to give them props for that.
