Cleveland Cavs Jersey Concept


Believeland

Recommended Posts

What's up guys? New to posting on the site, though I've been lurking for a while. Anyway, here's a concept I came up with for the Cleveland Cavaliers. As a Cavs fan, I was pretty disappointed to see the new jerseys they released this year. It's not that I necessarily hate them, I just expected more. I drew inspiration from a few of my favorite Cavs jerseys of the past, and took the color scheme back to the original Wine and Gold instead of the more muted colors they currently use. I used my favorite Cavs word mark for these, though I'm designing my own original word mark that I'll post when I'm done. The white is home, wine is away, and the gold is the alternate. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

After taking into consideration some of your suggestions, I made some alterations to my original designs. I switched the home and away word mark back to what the Cavs currently use, added a stoke on the numbers and lettering, changed the logo on the shorts, added a logo above the name, and threw in the NBA logo for good measure. For the alternate, I decided to keep the Cavs word mark from the late 80's/early 90's because I thought it still looked good on the gold and would be a bit more tolerable as an alternate. Thanks again for the suggestions. Let me know what you think of the updates.

A little bit of White is what I thik the current can's set is missing, so I'm lovin' your color choice.

Overall the jerseys are unique and don't look bad at all, but I wouldn't want the Cavs going back to this era of logos... maybe use the current logos?

Nice work!

These look really, really sharp! I kinda like the 80s logo with the current colors from the original post, actually, but I wasn't a fan of the number font you used. Maybe combine the old logo with the new numbers? Great job, though!

Well, as a Cavs fan I'm sure you know this, but they already kind of wore the uniforms you're describing, in fact they even wore these in the Playoffs.

Yeah, I definitely like the second set more, even though both aren't that original in terms of design, the second one definitely feels less dated, and other than the wordmarks for Cleveland and Cavaliers it's a solid set for them going forward. Plus, I did look their look back during the Austin Carr era.

These are quite nice. It's a clever nod to the past while still managing to be modern. I love the way the alternating sections of striping get smaller the farther away they get from the waist.

I actually really like the CAVS wordmark, though I understand how it could get old quickly, and the other wordmarks work pretty well. So why not use the CAVS on the alternate? That would be a great way to bring everything together.

Great suggestion there. I also love the way the CAVS wordmark looks on the gold and blue alternates, but tend to lean towards the current wordmark for the home and away jerseys. I'm going to touch these up in the next day or two based on some of the suggestions here. Thanks.

Also, this wasn't meant to be an entirely original concept. More of a modern version of a classic jersey. The Cavs said when they released their new jerseys that they wanted to get back to a more classic look. However, it almost seemed they just got lazy with the new jerseys and didn't really put much thought into them. I looked at this as if I was given the assignment of essentially "reinventing" some of the jerseys of the past with a more modern look.

Just don't have a navy alternate. The wine, gold, and white play well together. The Navy just doesn't work. It worked with the more red and gold colors in the LeBron James era... but the navy doesn't play well with these colors.

You're right. I completely forgot about those. Playoffs seem like such a distant memory...
