I still can't shake the "sailing" feeling to this set. I have realized why. This is completely on-brand to Nautica. A company that emphasizes sailing with clothing with thick horizontal navy lines. I just don't associate Nautica with Minnesota, or wolves.

Which is a shame, because overall I actually really like the set.

They don"t look awful, but these lack something..... on yeah..... GREEN!

Now, it's not all bad. Eve though these copy the Wizards jerseys, they do end up looking nice. Had this been used for the Dallas Mavericks, I'd have have no issue.... and I worry that Green alternate that was sort of leaked is going to stick out like a sore thumb.

The only good thing I will say about these is that I really like the 'MINNESOTA' script on the Icon Edition -- the narrow characters look significantly better than the wide characters. The 'WOLVES' script isn't terrible, but looks noticeably more awkward next to that 'MINNESOTA' script.

It's low-key disheartening that they could go through the work of a rebrand and not find room to put a logo on there (like a tree or just the wolf head).

 

ESPECIALLY the wolf head.  I think I saw a small howling wolf on the side of the shorts, but IMHO it should be incorporated more.

I don't disagree, but for the absence of green. I get the instinct to be subtle with a neon accent color, but there's such a thing as being too subtle. 

 

These would be 1,000x better had they outlined the word mark and numbers in green.

 

And since someone brought up the Seahawks, there's a good example of how to incorporate eon green into a set with subtlety. 

Some green would have been great. We have so many multi-blue teams in the world, it would have been a nice way to separate them from the others.

That would've meant more green. From the looks of these, it appears that keeping green to a nearly non-visible minimum was a design objective.
