New Kansas BBall Uniforms

Recommended Posts

Got this pic from a buddy of mine who is an Adidas rep and has access to the new styles catalog... Looks like somewhat of a downgrade IMO, not enough red and a little bummed there's none of that classic Jayhawk logo anywhere on them. OH and I'm really praying that shorts thumbnail on the bottom right isn't implying a black alternate in the near future... Meh.

That's just a template from an adidas team catalog which is why you see different numbers and colors for schools and teams to order from.

Kansas really needs to bring back the old Tuscan font.

Either version is fine with me, as they are both VAST improvements over Trajan (a.k.a. "That Movie Poster Font.")

Wait, so you're admitting to liking something traditional and retro-looking? :D

Yes, full disclosure - I'm a sucker for some of the more unique classics. I love a good Tuscan font (good, as in not the ugly cartoony one that the Mets use).

But let's be honest here, even Serpentine would look slightly better than that Trajan mess that Kansas uses now.

They kinda mix some of their NBA designs with these college templates. Cmon, where's the rest of the catalog?

To be fair, Trajan is better than Serpentine. It's just used inappropriately here.

Horrible...their old font was classic. DOWNGRADE!

Not on a sports uniform IMO - it just doesn't look right to me. Serpentine can look nice occasionally on a uniform though:

This is an example of Kansas' marketing department going overboard with their new university "branding." The Trajan looks great on a simple University wordmark (www.ku.edu), but terrible on sports logos/uniforms.
