Crossovers Gone Bad


Waffles

Recommended Posts

The Patriots had subtle pinstripes for the uniforms before their current ones. They were not visible from a distance but you could definitely see them..it's like the difference between blue and 70% blue, or white and 15% gray...barely noticeable, but you see it up close.

This leads me to ponder the question of whether pinstripes could ever work on a hockey or football jersey. Any opinions?

both sports, yes. hell, i figure pinstriped football pants would work. closest i've seen to em are what michigan state wore in 2002, which after further review didn't suck as badly as a lot of us thought. got the cover from SI when the irish won in east lansing last year hanging on my wall, and i gotta say it grew on me.

oh yeah, the pats' stripes were more like chalkstripes, but yeah, they were there. makes me wanna ask tennessee if they'd consider a checker treatment done in a similar way.

Sounds like the Columbus Blue Jackets uniforms (dunno if they still have the striping or not)

I don;'t mind these too much. If they were going for a complete cross-over it aweful, but if its just for fans who like the idea of having a yankees football jersey, it could be worse

The now-defunct Madison Monsters of the UHL had pinstripes on their home jerseys...I'll dig for a pic...

*edit*

Found it...the roads had em too, but they're ugly as all hell...but here are the homes:

Well, at least it's good to see an owner out there cheering for his team, being one of the 'true' fans, but man is that jersey fuggly

I don't see what's so wrong with it. It's a pretty good crossover, taking the existing elements of the Mavs' jerseys and transferring them into a football layout.
