The Rams Will Wear Those Sweet 1999 Throwbacks Tonight

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. » 10/13/14 3:56pm 10/13/14 3:56pm

NBA Teams With Titles May Get Some Gold On Their Uniforms

For my money, the best uniform tradition in sports is soccer's custom of putting stars on team crests in honor of past championships. (For a club, that generally means domestic titles; for a nation, World Cups.) It appears that a version of that badge of honor may be coming to NBA jerseys next season. » 7/15/14 4:39pm 7/15/14 4:39pm

NBA Logo Moved To Back Of Jerseys To Make Room For Ads

When the Charlotte Hornets revealed their jerseys yesterday, eagle-eyed observers like Uni Watch's Paul Lukas noticed something odd—the NBA logo, which had previously appeared on jerseys on the upper left chest area, had been moved to the back of the uniform. That's an awful lot of blank space created, but worry not;… » 6/20/14 9:17am 6/20/14 9:17am

Charlie Whitehurst Arm-Wrestled A Punter For A Uniform Number, And Lost

Charlie Whitehurst, who signed on to be the Titans backup, has never worn anything but No. 6 in his eight-year career. There was one problem: That's been punter Brett Kern's number since he came to Tennessee in 2009. The usual solution would be for Whitehurst to make Kern an offer for it. They went with something less… » 5/28/14 4:50pm 5/28/14 4:50pm

The Diamondbacks Will Wear Kansas City Throwback Uniforms

Look at that. That's a damn fine uniform. Unis from a century ago were usually pretty great—white or gray, high socks, uncluttered chest logo, and my favorite, logo-less caps. The Diamondbacks will suit up in these bad boys next Wednesday, and they're going to look great, but it's more than little weird that… » 4/18/14 1:55pm 4/18/14 1:55pm

Players Hate Those Sleeved Jerseys, And The NBA Pretends To Care

The sleeves jerseys are slowly taking over. With the news that the Nets will break out Dodgers-inspired uniforms in the spring, that makes five teams to add sleeved alternates to their regular rotation. Add in the 10 teams to play on Christmas Day, and the All-Star Game, and it's unavoidable—the NBA is pushing these… » 1/28/14 9:01am 1/28/14 9:01am

NBA's Christmas Uniforms Are Ugly As Sin

Last month, we saw the leaked NBA uniforms for Christmas Day—with sleeves? Sleeves?—and thought, hey, maybe they just seem bad because no one's actually wearing them. Perhaps they'll look better in action, on actual players. Nah. They look like generic unis for a movie set in the future designed to let the audience… » 12/25/13 4:11pm 12/25/13 4:11pm
