New Marlins Uniforms?

Recommended Posts

There's a good article in SBJ about the design process for the uniforms. The Marlins originally wanted a more abstract Marlins resembling the Nike swoosh and 7 primary colors. A focus group forced them to tone down the number of colors. The initial design went through 29 variations. It has a few early drafts too.

Do you have a link to that article? I'd like to read it.

I tried to search for it but I couldn't determine what SBJ stands for.

It is 1000% times better than the crap they are wearing at the moment.

Please... No.

In my opinion, Miami's logo is the worst in the big 4 sports world. However, the color scheme is nice.

When I first saw the Marlins Uniforms (besides the logo), I was actually kinda excited. The color schemes of all the uniforms in the league are all way too similar. The amount of similar reds/blues is just... boring.

With the marlins, we were going to see a bright orange/blue combo that I thought would look perfect for a Miami team. The blue wasn't a typical blue either, it was unique. Instead, they ruined the look with black. Why was black needed in the color scheme?

-Orange cap, orange jersey, white pants.

-White Cap, White jersey, White Pants

-Orange cap, grey/orange jersey/ grey pants.

-White cap, blue jersey, white pants.

No black needed.

The 1993 set was good, even 1996. But to call the 2003-2011 set 1000% better is an insult to humanity.

That set sucked, will always suck, and it will suck for only $5 and a few chicken nuggets.

The current set is good, and a few tweaks from being great- the announcement of the orange caps and accessories being used more is a giant step in the right direction.

@Soaringdude -- White hats don't work -- for obvious reasons.

It looks too collegiate. I can maybe see the Yankees coming out with a gray road cap, but no white for anyone.

Off topic, but has anyone ever wondered if teal is trying to be a "Novelty member", ala Giant Pacific Octopus? Given the reason that he wants teal on everything, or has that already been discussed? That doesn't really explain his/her love for sleeved NBA jerseys, but that's a different story...

I don't know why everybody goes off on Teal. Sure, he may root to hard for teal, but its kind of an accomplishment that he stands by his favorite color so admirably. Hell, I change my favorite color weekly

It has nothing to do about looking collegiate, because i honestly don't know any of the top of my head who use white lids. The main issue is keeping them clean -- dirt and sweat stains could make white hats look dingy after a series.

Reds did back in the 50s. A bunch of teams tried in the 90s, but all of them didn't last long.
