are there any non traditional uniforms you like? 

 

 

Yes!  Lots of them.  I like what looks good to me, and I hate what looks bad to me.

 

For example, I love the Seahawks uniforms - and they're far from traditional.  

 

Stop taking it personally that I don't care for the Falcons new uniforms.  Like... why does it matter so much to you?

Okay the uniforms have grown on me. Specifically the white on black and black on white. I wish the ATL font was smaller, but just like with 9/10 Nike releases they can’t help themselves but to add At least one bad element.

according to most websites and wikipedia the Cubs were the first MLB team to have pinstripes in 1907. What teams wore pinstripes in 1888? And yes people thought the pinstripes were pretentious

because i designed these uniforms and you’re criticizing my life work. /s

In all seriousness though i am not taking it personally. I’m just sick of hearing everyone circle jerk of how nike is trash and “everything” they make is trash and that unis before the 90s were sacred and beautiful. Again even when Nike does the right thing and goes back to a classic look like the Bucs people still take a dump on them when that is what they wanted. I’m not even a nike fanboy but it’s just tiresome hearing the same thing over and over

read what i wrote. I said the MLB not the National League. Even then they only wore them for one year.

While on the topic I think pinstripes are a perfect example of trends/fads turned tradition. The issue is if we close our minds to anything new they’ll never become tradition

The rest of your post suggests otherwise.

Nike didn't design anything though. The look the Bucs went to was designed in 1997, and first outfitted by Wilson. What did Nike do, exactly, aside from listen to what the Bucs wanted?

Well not everything. 

Still? Three of the most egregious Nike uniforms (Jags, Bucs, Browns) have been replaced, almost as soon as the league would allow it. 

Seems like even teams get buyer's remorse when it comes to this stuff.

Oh my G-d. You are just determined to be argumentative, aren't you?

I'm the last person that's going to tell you that everything before the 90s was beautiful, and I'll also tell you that I blame the teams for trash like what Cleveland got and Tampa got 5 years ago, and not Nike.

 

don't think that every team needs gray face masks, or that jerseys need sleeves, and that sleeves need stripes.

 

Address people for the points they're making, rather than lumping everyone together.  There's some gray-face-mask-loving people on the forum that like to do that - don't be like that.

Caution people about lumping others together... by lumping others together? 😂

The National League is part of MLB and is 100% part of the uniform history of baseball. Stop moving goalposts

Well I said "some".  Plus, I'm really referring to one troll poster.

There's my answer @Reyes47 besides, different sports different aesthetics. I've never seen someone continue to dig themselves into a hole like you are.

Seriously. @CaliforniaGlowin loves "off the wall", non-traditional uniform designs and colors but he's a respected member of the community. You know why? He isn't argumentative or diminutive or groups anyone that disagrees with him together. He says his opinion, takes the ribbing in stride, and moves on

A couple retail images have surfaced of the black and white jerseys. These are the mid grade Limiteds. I am very curious to see how the gradient is translated to the fan jerseys. I have a feeling that one may be released as the sublimated, cheaper Legend version only. I can’t see how they would be able to apply that design to the Game or Limited jerseys.
