After receiving positive feedback from my update to Detroit's road set, I decided to expand this into an entire Tigers refresh.

Let's get to the changes I've made and the reasons behind them:

  • Navy has been darkened. Gives a crisper feel in contrast to the orange.
  • The orange is a bit bolder as well, to serve as a more outstanding accent color specifically in the absence of white on the traditional road set.
  • The home "D" on the jersey now matches the "D" on the cap. I felt this was a necessary change to maintain uniformity throughout the identity.
  • Both road jerseys feature piping around the sleeve cuff and "V" neck, in contrast to the current piping down the center. I felt this showed a genuine contrast between the home and road sets, but not enough to break the uniformity of the entire identity.
  • White has been eliminated from the primary road set. I never liked the "double stroke" look around the wordmark, nameplate and numerals on the current roads. It looks outdated and crowded. A simpler navy with orange stroke shows a modern, clean, respectful update to one of the league's most revered ball clubs.
  • I've added a road alternate set, for use during away games only. The Tigers' home whites are the only jerseys to be worn at Comerica Field, to maintain the club's traditional appearance. The navy roads may be worn on Friday or Sunday road contests. This navy jersey is a recoloration of the updated roads, featuring orange piping on the sleeves and neck.
  • All three jerseys feature no sleeve artwork. This is to further maintain the cleanliness of the entire identity, and leave room for patches dedicated to special occasions.

That about does it! I'd love to hear feedback from you all. Thanks!

(Edit: I noticed I accidentally omitted the MLB logo on the back of the jerseys. Please ignore that small note.)

I remember seeing your road concept and suggesting the navy alternate. Absolutely beautiful.

Things I particularly like:

- addition of piping around the sleeve, especially on the home.

- darkening of the orange

- making the logos match. It used to bother me, I got used to it, but it still looks cleaner.

- cleaning up the road.

What I don't like:

- nothing.

:)

Excellent job.

I really love the uniformity with the matching D. Also, it may just be my computer but that orange looks a bit dark.

They look great. I don't understand how on earth anyone ever thought it was a good idea to use two different D's like they currently do. Just they dumbest thing.

I like what you've done here, but "darkening the navy"? They already use the same Navy as the Yankees - how much darker can it get without being Black?

It wasn't a huge change -- slightly darker as I felt the blue was too bright.
