Love, Philadelphia 6ers early 90s unis 

 

hate,  their late 2000s black unis

Agreed, although their early-90s unis were SO early-90s!

To me, this is the best uniform the Padres and Astros have worn.  I know I'm way in the minority on this one!

I don't know about WAY in the minority.  I think there are a decent number that feel that way about both.

 

I don't mind the Padres uniform.  Though brown and orange is just too good.

 

I really, really dislike the Astros uniform  My unpopular opinion is that I think that's easily the worst they ever looked.  Yeah, the colors are appropriate.  I don't care.  It's just so drab.

I'd agree it could use something more...just can't put my finger on it.  The color scheme is what sells me on it.  I was not a fan at all when they made the switch to the red (was it officially called brick red?).

These uniforms are not good looking at all.

 

Shoulder yokes are too big, making the player look small.

 

Pant stripes are too wide, again making the player look small and there is an unmotivated widening of the stripes at the bottom of the pants.

 

Pant stripes and shoulder yokes don't match the pattern around arms, waist and socks.

 

Combine this and there's just too much going on. The uniforms are crowded, chaotic and incoherent.

 

That particular blue color at times looks too purple.

 

70/80's hockey jersey design in general is bad and this is also true for the Oilers.

 

Dynasty nostalgia is the only reason to keep wearing these uniforms.

I love 1980s design, but I really think the Oilers got it right when the went with the dark blue and copper.  I thought that was a terrific upgrade.

 

Also, that Oilers uniform was probably executed a bit better in the 1980s, at least on the necks. But I did check out some Greztky photos; I had no realized the stripes were so thick back then.  I think they'd have been better served narrowing the stripes just a bit.  Overall, it's not bad but I do think the pre-edge darker uniforms were better and tend to agree that these are back due in large part.  On the other hand, I am glad the Islanders are back to their glory uniforms (though they were a bit nicer in the 1980s).

I like that Padres uniform and LOVE that Astros uniform. The shooting gold star was classic...it had motion, unlike the plain stars they wear now.

1. It's no larger than any other yoke

2. The pants stripe thickness might be the only thing we can agree on

3. Not all stripes have to match and if they did on this uni you would have stripe overload like the gators.

4. You'd have way too much going on if you made all the stripes match, also attempting to match a yoke to the rest of the striping and still look good would be very difficult to do.

5. I've never seen them as purple, maybe they do in certain lighting but I've never noticed it

6. No, just no

7. Also those being terrific uniforms to fall back in is a reason to keep wearing them

Edmonton has a great classic look and a smidge too tricky a namesake to rebrand gracefully (as the fossil drops made clear years ago)

I do like this color combination, though it would be better for an MLS change/away or tertiary kit.

Agreed these uniforms are much better and they are more fitting for a team called the Oilers.

I absolutely love that set. The throwback is nice, I have nothing against it, but those pre-edge ones are the best they've ever worn.

The blue jerseys were perfect... But there was always something off about the white too me...

I'd be fine with either color scheme for the Oilers, but I'd love to see them come up with a new primary logo. The old oil rig worker is a great shoulder patch, but I don't even think that would be a good crest.

Late 90's till when the Edge took over was an era where everyone was just wearing huge jerseys.

Did The Edge take over by himself, or did Bono have a hand in the coup?

This is a common misconception! It was actually this man, who dropped his signature spear maneuver for the dreaded neutral zone trap:

They have a perfect logo for a crest if it could be coloured right.

Remove the Oilers and the shield. Use just the Gear & Drop logo. It's simple, gets the message across & would work fine on a sweater.
