Ugliest uniform ever?

Recommended Posts

If this one doesn't top the 1980 Tucson Toros, it definitely makes things into a two-horse race. Also from 1980, it's the stomach-and-trim-only two-tone pinstripes of the Tacoma Tigers:

Sweet Lordy Jeebus.

That is one awful mustache, almost as bad as Sidney Crosby's.

Don't forget about Fleury's pube stache. :P

token mention ...

I am unfortunate enough to have seen the Toros jersey in person. I can only imagine how intolerable the view would have been without the Pabst Blue Ribbon influence ...

I've been trying for weeks to forget all about that Toros jersey, and for years to forget about the Sixers crayon unis. Thanks for bringing both back to the forefront of my mind.

Those Sixers unis were the absolute worst. Whatever the NBA office was doing in the early 90s, it wasnt paying attention to uniform changes. all over print all over the league. It was the NBAs lost weekend.

So, was the full back light blue? And what were the number colors? Purple and brown? I mean, obviously nothing was off limits with this set.

This might challenge it, Orlando Thunder of the World League of American Football also has the crappiest logo ever

Bad logo, yes, but those jerseys are pure sex.

I turned SafeSearch on on Google Image Search because I was going to post a clever rejoinder to your comment. However, most of the images that came up under a "pure sex" search were photos of motorcycles and cars. That's kind of weird, isn't it?

EDIT: Oh, and this came up too:

No way man, that is mid 90's perfection!

Those and the San Antonio Riders, manifique!

That picture is obviously a fake.

With his current foot and ankle problems, there is no way he could wear those heels.

90s perfection...yes. But what bothered me about the uniforms was the fact that the neon green seemed gratuitous. Nowhere in that helmet logo was neon green...then out of nowhere BAM...it's all over the jersey, pants, and socks.

It bothers me now...but as a "tween" during the time the Thunder played...I marked out for it.

personally one of my favourites but generally never fails to shock.

if youre wondering, the jersey is described as: claret, grey, chocolate and pail blue quarters with black and green trim.

It's like Garth Brooks took up uniform design.

Never before did I think those Orlando unis would look good. But next to the first two in this thread (and half the time, depending on my mood, OM's new argyle soccer kits)...they almost look good. Wow.

I dunno if I can live like this.

The funny thing is that in 10-20 years (if not sooner), people will be saying the same thing about Oregon's football uniforms and the other school/teams with "swooshes", "batwings" "side panels" and piping galore.

There are plenty of people saying that now.

colors remind me of this

I can see why you would draw that comparison, but as someone who LOVED the Canucks' V-Shirt, I'll point out that this jersey is well DESIGNED.

Colours and Tones used go well together, the V has a meaning, unlike the Toros' diagonal.

I think I'm willing ot cast my vote to the Toros.
