Chicago White Sox Concept


Anomalied

Recommended Posts

I'm drawing this idea from another poster, who suggested the idea of a forest green color somehow integrated into the White Sox uniforms. This was based on the fact that green seats are being installed at US Cellular Field, and the new green color scheme on their web site.

Again, this is only my third concept ever. I am trying to improve, so I'd love some constructive criticism. Thanks.

First let me say, I like it. A lot. I'm sort of biased towards green; it's my favorite color and I feel it's severely underused in sports right now. And you did a good job on the concept.

But.. you knew there was a but.

I just can't see it with the White Sox. It just feels... wrong for them to have green. For some other team this would be great, or maybe some other color on here would be cool for the WSox, but just not green.

I'll repeat my comments from the last greenified Pale Hose concept

It should be a subtle detail, subtle as can be. Like green trim on the numbers in addition to silver trim, or green trim on the Sox logo for the home pinstripes. It should be the most minor of details, not just big blobs of green. The green doesn't dominate in the instances that they've incorporated it heretofore, and I don't expect it to in the future. Why should it dominate on the jerseys?

I'm glad someone else gave this a shot. This concept is a good first step. My biggest criticism has already been voiced: The addition to green should be minor. But I like the other things happening here.

Just for reference, my Sox w/ Green concept is here.

Gotta join the chorus here.

While I like green and agree it is underused, it's done to excess here.

For the first time in over a century, the Sox seem to be settled on a color scheme and logo. I think they've changed their uniforms more than any team in the 4 major leagues (MLB/NFL/NBA... and that other one I can't remember). They've tried every conceivable combination of red, white and blue, and finally hit on something with the silver and black. I just don't see where green belongs.

Amen!

And I echo most of the above sentiments - green is cool, but not for the White Sox. I do like the use of the sock in the diamond logo, though.

The old Comiskey Park had green seats (almost Mariners green), but the new one has blue seats I think. This concept might have been better in the old park...

U.S. Cellular field is currently being switched from blue to forrest green as part of its on-going renovations. The green seats will look much better once fully installed, IMHO.

The green looks good from an aesthetics standpoint, and the execution is really good here. However, I just can't imagine the White Sox wearing them. The primary color for them should obviously be white, but since that is not feasible as a primary color, the dominant color(s) should be "generic" or "typical" colors such as black, blue, or even red. Anything other then that just steals your attention and demand a logical reason to be there.

I'm not sure why the color of the seats would trigger a uniform change but I guess I haven't seen everything yet. I also don't see them changing to green but those are okay attempts. Why can't anyone try getting them to wear white socks though??? For some reason, the gradually got rid of them after WWII (except for a couple of white hose attempts in the 60's and 80's).

Hey, if they keep playing this well, nobody will even see the seats during a game.
