Reactions to last season’s debut of monochromatic Nike NFL uniforms ran the gamut from “hideous” to “fine, whatever” to “I am colorblind and literally cannot tell these teams apart.” But enough of you morons actually went out and bought those jerseys, I guess, so they’re doing it again this year.
Clothing company Mitchell & Ness, best known for its retro uniforms, has compiled the data on the top-selling throwback jerseys in every state for 2015. Your new champion, at least by number of states? Larry Bird, shoving out Kobe Bryant from last year’s top spot.
The headline on the Diamondbacks’ official site is maybe less than objective: “D-backs wow with cutting-edge new uniforms.” Well, whatever else you can say about the uniforms unveiled yesterday, you can’t deny there sure are a lot of them.
The absurd “color rush” uniforms worn by the Jets and Bills last night were bad enough if you could see them. They were worse for the millions of viewers who couldn’t. The NFL says: oops.
Nike introduced some stupid new uniforms for tonight’s Bills-Jets game, and the color-on-color combination is especially bad for people with colorblindness, who are taking to Twitter to let the NFL know their displeasure.
It didn’t have to be this way. The Atlanta Hawks could have designed nice, normal uniforms, like other teams get to have. They could have avoided aiming for “retro-futuristic” and missing so badly they ended up with “textured alarm clock.”
The 76ers unveiled their new uniforms last night, and they’re clean and lovely. Other than the Fierce Ben Franklin secondary logo, there’s really not much to complain about. This is a team that’s going to look good while it’s being embarrassingly bad.
Clippers owner Steve Ballmer went on Conan today, and while there he officially unveiled what he called “the new Clippers logo”. While Ballmer didn’t bring along any jerseys, the logo is the same as what was on mockups that were leaked to Uni Watch back in April. Here is how the new logo will supposedly look on a…
In 2006, the no-longer Disney-owned Mighty Ducks of Anaheim underwent a complete rebranding, changing their name, their purple-primary uniforms, and most crucially, dropping the duckbilled Jacques-Plante-Mk. 2 mask logo. In exchange, they unveiled the “D-foot,” which has now been the team’s identity nearly as long as…
Uni Watch has the designs for the NBA’s typically gahd-awful Christmas Day uniforms. They’re great. They’re better than like half the league’s standard unis. (The teams in red look like Coke ads.)
The 49ers unveiled their new alternate uniforms last night, via the launch of their team Snapchat account, smack dab in the middle of the NFL Draft. It’s almost as if they wanted to make sure no one noticed, because the uniforms are junk.
The Browns completed their branding process tonight, revealing their new uniforms in an over-the-top ceremony that culminated with the players modeling the new uniforms coming out onto the stage in orange cloaks, like Halloween wizards. Taylor Gabriel really should have practiced getting that wizard…
The NHL is breaking out the glowstick-green for next week's All-Star Game. At Uni Watch, Paul Lukas gives a painful, annotated history of neon uniforms.
The Ducks toned down their uniforms for their national championship against Ohio State, and the results are plain boring. The school colors, green and yellow, are just totally absent. Weak.
The rebranding of the Raptors charges onward. The team leaked a glimpse of this new logo in a TV spot released today, then briefly floated the color version to their Facebook page before taking it down.
NBA uniforms have gotten pretty ridiculous lately, but we aren't quite to the point where players are competing in their warmup shirts. That didn't stop the Grizzlies' Tony Allen from trying to enter tonight's game against the Kings while still sporting his warmups.
St. Louis is breaking out the 1999 throwback uniforms for Monday Night Football tonight, and goddamn, it brings back some fond memories. I genuinely wonder how much of that is the actual uniform and how much is the fact that it was last worn by one of the most exciting teams of football's modern era.
Every other college football team can go ahead and stop trying to be the most American, because the University of Maryland has unveiled a new set of helmets and uniforms that are pure America.
