I don't mind the waist stripes on the Miami Hurricanes' basketball unis.

This came up in the NHL 16-17 thread, but I love these Sens alts:

I loved this jersey...as an alternate.  Part of the appeal went away when it became the full time away jersey (then home).

I hope that chest stripes become more popular in hockey, not (basically) just limited to the Canadiens. I love the Solar Bears uniforms, and I really liked the mockups that people made for the Panthers rumors. I'd like to see it become like pinstripes in baseball, where the Yankees are the most famous to use them, but it's not unusual for other teams to have pinstripes and nobody flips out.

I like customized fonts and I think most of them are better than generic block.

I do as well, but not for football. Other than the Bears' numbers, which go back forever anyway, I find it hard to improve upon good old varsity block on a football uniform. There are a few custom sets I like (the old Jaguars, the varsity serif on the Cowboys' throwbacks, however you describe what the Seahawks are doing now), but for the most part, you lose more than you gain by using custom numbers.

I think that I like custom numbers more and more as the size of jerseys gets smaller. For example, I like custom jerseys in football more than in hockey. I think it's because on jerseys with less real estate for striping, a custom font can provide a distinct design element that clearly differentiates one team's branding from another's.

I think contrasting color panels on baseball hats is a design feature best left in the past. And I don't think it looked particularly good then either.

There is/was something awesome about the Expos' pinwheel hat on a baseball field, but the hat is kind of tough to pull off on a public street.

 

When given a choice, I'll take white-panel hats over color-panel hats though.  The Orioles' orange-paneled hats were pretty ugly.

I like pretty much all of the Dodgers' special event jerseys for this season.  I especially love the Mothers and Fathers Day jerseys...the Fathers Day one even more due to the blue.

This is still my favorite look the Penguins have ever had.

Agree with you.

 

That logo needs to return as a shoulder patch or 3rd jersey.

The best look the Falcons ever had was their 1988 look, with the early 2000s a close second.

Those are both fine looks. I don't think the Falcons have ever had a truly bad look. Their worst is their current, just because of the unnecessary piping and asymmetrical striping, but even it is far from horrible.

I've said this before but I still believe the Mets were the only team to make black work.

Also, I don't know if it's because people didn't like it or MLB teams just don't wanna wear them anymore but some teams need to bring back vest uniforms because they looked good.

Especially the Pirates.
