Disregarding the yellow jersey and cap, this was my idea from a couple years ago. I like it on paper, anyway.


I'm actually not a fan of the black jersey/pants with yellow socks.  Looks off.

Black from top to bottom with yellow and gray text?  I'd be game.

For the sake of legibility, I wish that the pirates went with a gold word mark.

I I don’t hate the Pirates new black alternate but I’d prefer they just used gold lettering instead of the black-on-black, and why is it so hard for them to figure out that they only need ONE cap? Whether the outline is white or gold, either one is totally unnecessary and doesn’t match the jersey anyway. 
 

Semi-related comment: I would love to see the pirates go all-black from head to toe. I think they could pull it off.

 

i, too, originally blanched at this idea of an all-black pirates look, but the marte picture swayed me. think you're right. if they wanted to try it out, it could look great.

on a related note, who's this 'COLE' guy that was on the pirates? he ever amount to anything?

I'm hoping the Phillies st hat is their bell logo with a P inside. 

 

We’ve already seen the Phillies new ST cap (I actually think it was the very first one leaked). It’s the bell with the script Phillies inside of it.

Personally I think Pittsburgh and Oakland both look great in this picture. Those aren’t 162-game looks, to be sure, but they’re both fine alternates to me.

The black alt numbers and hats are incredibly bad. What a :censored:ing swing and a miss... I'm honestly surprised these cheap mother:censored: haven't came up with a fourth useless hat to go along the road grays.

Pirates “Rewrite the Script”, Unveil New Road, Alternate Uniforms

January 24, 2020 - 20:45 PM

The Pittsburgh Pirates today unveiled their new grey road and black road alternate uniforms for the upcoming 2020 season. Both uniforms feature the same retro-inspired scripted “Pittsburgh” wordmark across the front of the jersey, both are black with gold trim. […]

I'm guesing this will be merged with the MLB thread...but the new alternate hat is completely pointless (as is the white outline alt hat); apparently the camo unis return for 2020 (ugh); the 90s jerseys looked better with the S not split on the button placket, plus the 90s striping of b/y/b looked better than y/b/w.

Didnt they have grey road caps sometime during the 90s?

Yes. Yes, they did. I remember them being in a 1997 video game.

Did Nike tweak the Pirates numbers ?

 

Looks the same:

They look great. Not sure why the complaints. I like that they dropped the white outlines from the black set. Padres should have done the same thing on their brown jersey. 
 

Edit: the break on the S is a problem though.

That whole double outline black set reminds me of a color rush type effort. I wonder if Nike was behind any of this. 
 

I guess at least it’s yellow, and not red

 

The outline around the hat logo blends in at a distance. Same with the outline around the numbers. And even your script is lost. They’re trying to go with a mono neon lights look. Luckily most can see through their crap. It’s real bad. What does that leave them with? 5 sets and four hats? They need one hat and at most three sets. 
 

solid script color and lose any and all outlines. Instance success.
