Sixers announce new uniform for 2015-16

Recommended Posts

The Sixers have announced that they plan to start the post-tank era with new uniforms. They appear to be going with the ever-popular "combination of eras" method of design, which never fails. Discuss.

A reminder, again, that it's cool to break bigger stories out of mega threads. Carry on.

I'm not sure how I missed that thread, I actually did look for it to see if it was posted. Another reason why megathreads suck. So here we are.

Copying a post from that thread since it shows the uniforms that will be mashed up. If nobody wants to discuss it here, then just send this thread to the apocryphal graveyard.

Ok so these are the 3 jerseys from the video:

And these are their home/road counter parts

Can someone with more Photoshop skills than me do a mock up of some combo of the 3? Taking from the video I'm guessing it's going to be: Home whites that say Sixers, Blue roads that say PHILA and Red alts that says Sixers.

One thing that all 3 have in common are the rwb stripes around the collar/shoulders

The third one in that set is really all they need.

At home, yes. I like blue as a road color, and I like the PHILA mark too, so I'd like a blue jersey with white PHILA wordmark with a red outline (I'd say reverse that, but then you look like the Pistons.)

Then just use the red SIXERS jersey as the alt, or just say eff it and go with a black and gold version as an homage to the Iverson era for an alt (yeah it sucks for the brand, but it'd sell like crazy.)

How about a mash up of this:

and this:

Fix the wordmark so it looks less cluttered and you have a winner.

Those Iverson jerseys are so overrated IMO. You have a wordmark that's individual letters are double outlined, and then the whole wordmark is double outlined, creating that silly unnecessary line that connects the R and S.

And the number looks kinda copperplate-ish. It's just a disaster. The trim and side design was OK.

Mashups generally don't work. I'd be OK with that PHILA uniform, or a modernization of it, but maybe with the colors inverted.

So they start with the third set, add the star side panels from the second and use the first's color scheme (i.e. blue before red). Maybe even a PHILA?

I agree the third is all they need, but they kind of tried that with the current set minus some outlines and not many seem to like it. (I did.)

I used to hate the black red and blue, but I actually want them to bring it back. It was unique

This will be interesting. Even though the current set is also retro inspired, I've never liked it. It just seemed like not a lot of effort was put into it.

Meh. How many different ways can you really do R/W/B?

That's exactly why I said to fix the wordmark and I agree the number are copperplate-ish. As far as mashup goes, if the video is any indication, that's exactly what we are getting a mashup of some sort of all three on the video.

"Unique" does not equal "good."

Actually, it looks like too much effort was put in to it.

I actually prefer the black-and-gold era color scheme over the current, but not so much the uniforms from that era. I can't remember who did it, but someone over in the Concepts section had a perfect combination of the two, where they put the current logo in the other colors. I'll see if I can find it on Google

The 76ers are a great example of how to do it in many many ways.

The 78 uniforms I hope is what it most resembles

Match the number font to the word mark and I'd be cool with that.

I realize it was the 1970s, and design standards for uniforms were nowhere near what they are now, but who in God's name let that "e" happen?
