Phoenix Suns New Uniforms

Wasn't sure that I would like the new Suns unis based on the leaked image but I really like these...my only gripe is the size of "Suns/Phoenix" on the chest. I feel like they come too close to the arm striping. Maybe at 95-90% percent of their current would be better for spacing?

I love the Suns new look. Its clean, and so much better than any unis they have worn since Barkley played. The script on the old unis was bad, and the numbers were worse. The home didn't look great, but the away uniform was BAD. The Nash era uniforms weren't bad, but they weren't great. 

 

Thses Suns unis aren't too busy, but have detail. Im hoping there is a black alt, which would complete this great set. The Suns now look like warriors of the sun, not walking pumpkins.

Meh. I like the purple but dislike the second time we've lost the sunburst stripe, which IS the Suns to me. Neutral on this change.

 

and possibly an even more unpopular opinion is that I hope they retain that dark ash color for an alt.

Don't forget the Bucks who ditched it for something far better.

I don't mind beveling, for the most part. It's actually not that bad for either the Cavs or Suns. But it just screams "template" to me, and thus I have a suspicion many Nike redesigns will see it.

Could definitely just be the lighting (which raises the question: why use such unnatural lighting conditions for the reveal?) but here is a comparison between the purple on new set and the old (with possibly similar studio lighting):

Purple is one of those colors that vary most wildly under different lighting conditions.   I don't know that it's reasonable to compare any two pictures taken at different times.

One of my least favorites of the ones that changed.  The beveling, the just-too-custom number font, and the half side stripes just don't work well for me.

 

I don't particularly love the wordmark font, but if they just went solid with it (purple letters orange numbers on the white, white letters orange numbers on the purple) it woud look a ton better.  If they need an outline on the wordmark, then fine - orange outline on purple letters on the white, orange outline on the white letters on the purple.

 

I really hate "they should go back to" but I'm there with the Suns.  Just modify the shooting ball uniforms and roll with that..

Not a fan of the beveling, but otherwise, I like it.  I like it a lot better than the previous set, which had two much black and a sunburst that I really, really hated.  I like the purple/orange focus.

I think I figured out what's bugging me about this suns set (and what bugged me about the last set, too). The wordmark is orange with a purple outline on the home jersey, and that just looks wrong for the Suns. They should always be a purple dominant team with orange as an accent, and the past two sets have swapped that (or, in the case of the last set, emphasized orange swapped purple out for black for some reason that made no sense).
