Associate AD at SCAR just confirmed the throwbacks... As a Gamecock fan, I'm pretty excited to see how these look.

Never liked for Arizona State's pitchfork logo. Honestly would prefer if they used their old interlocking "AS" logo over that. Don't dislike Sparky, just prefer the AS logo.

Isn't the AS baseball-only, though?

Where I work at Newberry College in SC, we got some new custom Adidas pants in the other day.. apparently shiny "dazzle" material DOES exist!

Will FSU ever update their uniforms?

Like they have twice in the past 5 years? (the all new set in 2014 and the trim tweak in 2017[?])

Unless they're going back to the previous set, I hope they don't, most they should do is change the numerals on the garnet jerseys to white.

 

I don't trust a new design.

That’s a photoshop. Look closely near the ball. (Not to mention his numbers are tucked/creased in the exact same spot in both photos)

did it ever go away?? I thought they just got moved to the back of the catalog because the dazzle nylon was deemed old tech and did not wick moisture enough to meet the demands of high performance athletes...I would be curious to know the weight difference between those and and the contemporary matte pants if you have a scale handy.

definitely a fake.. i dont think i would mind this as a one-off alternate if they decided to go this way in the future; there was a "rumor" last year that they might do an alternate

Well, they're pretty much front and center of the catalog in this particular case.. so I'm not sure anything really got moved anywhere.. they just aren't pushed by Adidas as much as the A1 PrimeKnit stuff..

I think it has much more to do with each company wanting to create "proprietary" fabrics that offer (essentially the same) different technologies and benefits, although it's pretty obvious that it's all just marketing talk..

As for the moisture-wicking properties, I spent about a year working with a small apparel company, and I learned that a fabric's ability to wick moisture is due largely to a chemical treatment of the fabric, rather than the type of fabric itself.. obviously cotton is never going to perform as well as polyester or nylon, but you could treat the cotton and have a "moisture-wicking" cotton item.. so, don't be fooled by Nike's fancy words - they typically make things sound a lot better than they actually are..

Marshall Thundering Herd Introduce New Road Football Uniforms

July 25, 2019 - 18:47 PM

With fall camp and the start of the season right around the corner, college football teams typically take part in photo shoots that assist with various promotions and player introduction videos throughout the year. In some cases, these photo shoots […]

I really wish the logos were higher up on the sleeves

Howard unveils their new uniforms with more of an emphasis on blue and grey, relegating red to an accent color (well, more of an accent color than it already was)

Ugh. Not a fan of Howard's football team adopting silver/gray into their uniforms. Especially since silver has long been a color of their main rival Hampton.

To expand for those curious, a natural fiber like cotton is naturally hydrophilic (absorbs water) but that water doesn’t have anywhere to go because the evaporation rate (drying time) is slower than the absorption rate, thus the cotton becomes soaked and stays wet until the evaporation can catch up (essentially not until you’re done sweating or it stops raining or whatever the case is.

 

As mentioned, though, Cotton can be blended with other fibers and/or treated to become more hydrophobic (repels water). Essentially what happens is the treatment doesn’t allow the cotton to absorb as much water, resulting in a cotton that dries faster. Similarly, a cotton blended with a synthetic contains less cotton and therefore also absorbs less water. Cotton blends are softer than their full synthetic counterparts.

 

Synthetic fibers are naturally hydrophobic and absorb very little water compared to natural fibers, but that’s not ideal either because they don’t naturally absorb the water off the skin and as a result you end up very drippy underneath the fabric. Synthetic fibers are often treated with a hydrophilic coating to help pull the water off the skin, and because they’re naturally hydrophobic, the water tends to sit on the outside of the fiber where the sun and air can evaporate it.

 

Wool is by far the most interesting. As a natural fiber, it’s hydrophilic (even more absorbent than cotton), but because it’s essentially a hair, it’s not hollow and it’s able to hold the extra moisture in the center of the fiber. The outside of the fiber is actually quite hydrophobic (that’s why a wool hat or jacket takes much longer to become soaked, and why sheep and goats are well-adapted to rainy environments). Because the fibers hold water in the center, wool is also very fire resistant.

 

The structure of the fibers combined with the hybrid moisture control give wool unique thermal properties as well. The fibers are crimped so they don’t lay flat against one another. Rather, they create tiny air pockets throughout the fabric. Wool is a good insulator because these air pockets can trap heat very well. Conversely, the air pockets can also keep you cool in warm weather because as you sweat, the wool absorbs the sweat (but because the water is stored in the center, the wool doesn’t feel as wet on your skin as cotton), and the airflow through the pockets is cooled by the moisture in the fibers.
