Teams that pull off generic colors

Recommended Posts

I’d say in the nba the 76ers pull it off better than the clippers and pistons.

Red and blue thematically fit a team named for American independence. Not so much boats and car parts. Honestly, if the Pistons wanted a color scheme that fits the name, they'd go for a really drab, early '00s-esque look. I'm thinking black, navy, and Vegas gold.

 

Speaking of teams wearing black, it has to be said: the Raiders.

Is blue & white generic? Because if so I really like the Indianapolis Colts' identity. It's simple yet still clean and classy.

I wonder if generic is the wrong term. Maybe common would be the right term. Like a Red/White/Blue color scheme can be considered common across all sports. Sixers may have designed a better identity off those colors than say the Pistons.

I can understand using RWB if the team has a patriotic theme, or the B/W for the White Sox, but a lot of teams could do better. For an old team there were limited colors available and tradition keeps them as is.

That's somewhat true.  Penn State's original colors were Pink and Black.

Syracuse used to wear pink and pea green.

I can’t imagine a team named the Orange not wearing, well, orange. That was a great change.

Seems so obvious, doesn't it?

It kills me that a team that used to have pink and black now has navy and white.   That's like a total 180.

Or a team called the Browns not wearing brown.

There are brown helmet/jersey/pant stripes and brown socks. Their primary home jerseys are also brown.

 

This doesn't compare.
