I like the numbers for the White Sox!

 

Thanks!

Another idea for the White Sox. I swapped out the "Southside" script for my gothic "Chicago" script:

I still think this is way TOO radical of a change for the Red Sox. I do agree that in general it was misstep starting with this uniform with how much of  a departure it was for the Sox, but I think that was Nike's way of saying expect the unexpected. They could've done something green and said it was Green Monster or done something modeled off of the red brick architecture of New England or the Giant Citgo sign above Fenway

 

Here's a version of the Red Sox in Fenway green I worked up:

This time around, I kept the script and number styles from the original City Connect design, but I traded the Marathon colors for Fenway green and red. I also made the "B" cap logo match the stencil style of the script. I originally tried the design with red scripts and white outlines, but the contrast wasn't very good.

This is what they should've done in the first place. This is BEAUtiful. I'd probably still keep the regular B on the cap, but this is still gorgeous. I'd buy this in a heartbeat

The Only Problem I See is the Red Sox Uniform looks like a faded out Miami Dolphins Jersey.

 

Hmm, I don't really see that. The red is quite distinct from Dolphins orange. 

 

Up today we have the San Francisco Giants:

Is it me, or does it feel like these City Connect designs have been getting worse and worse? Anyway, I tried to do what I could with the Giants. The biggest change is that I made the jersey sky blue.  Orange and white seems too plain, and if the concept is supposed to be based on the visual effect of the Bay's fog against the Golden Gate bridge, it makes sense to incorporate sky blue. I also replaced orange with the official Pantone color of the Golden Gate Bridge--Pantone 180, which is much more of a rusty red than Giants orange. Lastly, while I don't dislike the "G" on the jersey as much as others, I decided to swap it out for the "SF" monogram. Big thanks to @MJD7 for the bridge design. 

Here's hoping the Dodgers designs ends the season on a high note. C&C appreciated!

I'm back today with the Dodgers!

Ok, this one is a little more than just a "tweak." Frankly, I'm hugely disappointed at how boring the last few City Connect designs have been. The Dodgers one is fine, but after years of enjoying other people's concepts (and creating some of my own) of the Dodgers in blue, seeing that same basic design come to life feels somehow underwhelming. Also, slapping "Los" in front of the Dodgers script as a way to honor the city's Latino community reeks of lazy pandering. (Not to mention, the "spray paint" effect at the edges of the sleeves are stupid and practically invisible from a distance). For my version, I leaned much harder into the Latino tribute idea, using the colors of the Mexican flag and a "Los Doyers" script. The general design/color scheme is based on this Mexican Heritage Night giveaway jersey

C&C appreciated!

Like the different colored sleeves.

 

If you wanted another scratch built Dodgers uniform, you could do one with a Hollywood sign imitation font. That would fit and look good.

 

Thanks. The Hollywood idea is nice but maybe a bit cliched. I like the Latino heritage concept they went with, but I think it could have been executed much better. 

 

Up today is another Cubs City Connect tweak:

The Cubs' City Connect set has surprisingly grown on me, though I'm not still not sold on the "Wrigleyville" script. I decided to just slap the cap logo on the front of the jersey, as I think the combination of the flag colors and the six pointed star does a better job representing the whole of Chicago than just having the name of one specific neighborhood on the front.  @Carolingian Steamroller suggested the back numbers be outlined, and I agree. 

C&C appreciated!

Thought it would be fun to do a full uniform set built around each team's City Connect look. I'll start out with the Cubs:

 

CUBS HOME:

CUBS ROAD:

CUBS ALT:

I decided to use the sky blue from the Chicago flag as the team's primary color for this redesign. I really like the Cubs "C" with six pointed star so it's front and center on both the home and alternate jerseys. As I've said before, the "Wrigleyville" script is by far the thing I dislike most about the Cubs set, so I've relegated it to the road uni. 

 

C&C appreciated! The Marlins will probably be next. 

 

P.S. I should clarify I won't be doing this for every team. The Dodgers, for instance, wouldn't be worth my time.

maybe a charcoal grey or a gold or something would make this better. charcoal grey could be a "night sky" or something

 

Thanks. Not sure what I'll do with the Giants. I think I've decided they're my least favorite of the City Connect designs.

 

Up today are the Marlins!

 

MARLINS HOME:

This one's fairly straightforward. I whipped up a white version of the Marlins' City Connect for the home set and designated the red jersey as the alt. Monochrome light blue on the road with the cap logo on the jersey. I also added front numbers across the board. 

 

C&C appreciated! Boston is next.

The Marlins one looks great and very "70s-ish".


Thanks! I agree that if the Marlins came into existence in the '70s this is what they might have looked like. 

 

Today we have the Red Sox!

RED SOX HOME:

RED SOX ROAD:

RED SOX HOME ALT:

For Boston, the home, road and home alt are just variations on the team's actual City Connect design. The road alt features the stencil "B" which also replaces the traditional Red Sox "B" on the cap and sock design. 

 

C&C appreciated! The D-Backs or Giants will probably be up next.
