Seattle Pilots concept

Recommended Posts

Well, I'm at it again, this time for the Seattle Pilots, better known as the now Milwaukee Brewers. I really, really, really, really like thier uniforms (they only played one year - 1969), and I decided to bring them back. I made some slight modifications with it, however, including:

single yellow stripe bordered by blue instead of multiple stripes

changed away jersey color from sky blue (was the style in the 60's and 70's) to the current style of grey

removed those ugly "scrambled eggs" from the brim of the hat (they're not scrambled eggs by the way, I believe it has to do with the Navy....)

I kept the main logo (winged wheel), the block "S" cap logo, and the wordmark styles they used, also.

Note: The numbers I used are those of the current Buffalo Sabres. I thought the style worked well with the wordmarks and looked good with the colors.

Here it is, the Seattle Pilots.....

I would assume that the majority of us know that they're not really represented as scrambled eggs, but in Navy ,Coast Guard, and any other military branch that uses them, they are actually nicknamed "scrambled eggs". My dad was in the Coast Guard for 20 years and refers to them that way.

I don't know, I mean other than the use of grey instead of blue for their away jersey they're basically the same thing as their original jerseys. The logo is pretty cool, but it could use a bit of modernization. The lettering on the jerseys is a bit dated, most lettering in sports these days tend to be a lot bolder, for lack of a better term.

I will admit, there is potential here. However, a few things I'd like to bring up...

1) No font cohesion, especially on the road uni. You have an angular number font, a collegiate font on the hat, and to top it off, the '70s era rounded font for the script. Change the road script style to match the home's and you'll have a big first step to success.

2) Pick one logo to use on the jersey front, be it the main logo or a script, and only one. So far Toronto Blue Jays were the only one to pull off two logos at once.

Best of luck. Again, good stuff here, but needs tweaking.

and to believe that THAT was a MLB hat.

I've always wanted to get a Pilots hat, but I don't think I'd ever be able to wear it out in public.

It just fits the theme of the Pilots. A lot of pilot and air force hats have the scrambled eggs thing going on, and since the team was the Pilots it only fits that their hats should fit the theme.
