Seattle SuperSonics Crappy Arch Job

I'm surprised I've never seen this discussed. Anyone have thoughts as to why the old Sonics uniforms had such a junky arching job of the team name? I get it in the 70s the technology probably wasn't there to vertically arch the name, but as time went on this should have been fixed. Thoughts?

I always loved the uniform, but I felt like this could have been executed better.

Because nobody really gave two :censored:s about things like that back then.

I did.

Do you know if anyone's ever done a mock-up of how it would have looked if the arching had been corrected?

dont think it had anything to do with technology. and nothing is actually "wrong" with it, that's the way they wanted it. why did they set it that way? maybe to have something thats just different. maybe it has something to do with readability. maybe they saw it done somewhere else and liked the look.

Not sure how much technology was really required.

I will have to agree. I'm going to just assume the Sonics style was intentional.

As for the black trim on the updated version, I actually like it. It gives the uniform a little more depth and the black doesn't stand out.
