I'm very pleased, this is reminiscent of the early '70s stripeless set...

So @BrandMooreArt a technical question, is the new stroke on the numbers the same overall size as the double stroke from before? It seemed like the old ones were very thin, so I always figured if they were combined together as a solid color they would look normal.

Another question for @BrandMooreArt, was there any consideration for dropping the blue from the logo as well?

So I’d assume we’ll be getting an updated Color Rush jersey too?

I liked the previous set, but I was never a fan of the navy blue and weird fluorescent orange. This set is a good bridge between the old colors and new set. It feels more vibrant and does have a tiny bit of retro vibe to it. This just goes to prove that sometimes the littlest changes are for the better.

yea that was the idea, just remove the blue and replace with orange. we tried to keep things consistent from helmet to jersey to pants too. we sampled i think 3 different helmet stripes to make sure it was right

That would have been difficult to do. The dark blue actually gives the dolphin shape by shading the contours. If it were all one color the fin would be lost and it would look even more like a glop of toothpaste.

white for CR, or all aqua as the alt choice

Wow, I can't get over how much more I like the Dolphins' uniforms after such a minor change. One of the best examples I can ever remember of how important even small details can be.

The way they striped the last colors with navy blue seperating the orange from the aqua made the orange disappear against white backgrounds. Losing the blue really helps showcase both colors properly. 

 

Great work.

This is a major improvement. Probably the best uniforms they've ever worn (I always thought their throwback look was highly overrated).

This is exactly what this board needed.

LOL.  

 

We haven't been this happy since the Blue Jays.

I'm assuming they want to keep the throwbacks as their own entity, so in lieu of that, this is as good an upgrade as we could have hoped for...

All they needed was more orange and they did it.  Excellent job, Miami. This is a classy look.
