BRice16 Posted April 19, 2010 Share Posted April 19, 2010 Or, Indiana says "none of those match the image we're trying to portray". I find it hard to believe that there's any apparel contract that gives final say on design to the manufacturer. Heck - I find it hard to believe that in any design contract, the designer and not the client get to dictate the rules.Well, there's not exactly that language, but there is in a lot of Nike's college contracts that says the school has to select from one of X number of designs presented by Nike. They have worked with schools a little bit more in football, but in basketball, I know of a couple of schools that were given the choice of a couple of ridiculous Nike bball templates and nothing like the traditional look they wanted. Adidas will do whatever the school wants (and I'm sure Nike does in SOME cases as well). IU had the "traditional" jersey from the last few years because it is exactly what they wanted. They wanted a change, still keeping a relatively traditional look. The side panels aren't great, but they're far less egregious than some things that have been put on jerseys. I'm not crazy about the Adidas logo inside the collar panel, but it's not terrible. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
