The Brewers' current uniforms look just like the Padres' -- like an upscale yet crappy "river restaurant" in some chintzy downtown revitalization area.

how about the a's in your face green and yellow unis? maybe they toned things down when it was suggested they were part of global cabal that included british petroleum and church's fried chicken.

or not.

Alex Rodriguez has gone ivory-footed in the All-Star Game at least since his Rangers days. Writing in his now-defunct blog two years ago (yes, A-Rod had a blog), he explained why: "When I was a kid, I used to watch the All-Star Game on TV. I grew up a big Mets fan, as many of you know..."

a couple things:

1)I was really bummed to see that the Rays removed any hint of green from their new uni's.

2)The Mets have the best uni's in all of sports. The orange highlights KILL me everytime.

I will rep for the Indians' 3rd college jerseys being the best in Baseball.

Paul Lukas last week on this year's patches (a little out of date since there were some late reveals):

Holy shit, that Lukas dude is ugly. (As a fellow ugly person, I'm allowed to say that.)

The all-stars are wearing stars on their hats for all-star awareness. How cute.

Has that been done before? Can't recall.

mookieproof, Wednesday, 2 January 2013 21:55 (six years ago) link

i mean he took existing logos, put them on a different type of shirt, and added a random corporate sponsor. doesn't really require 2500 words of insight into his 'design process'.

at least there are no pink versions for the ladies tho

mookieproof, Wednesday, 2 January 2013 22:05 (six years ago) link

I was just thinking last night about starting a "when do you think MLB/NFL/NBA uniforms will be logo'd up like they do in soccer or motor sports?" thread.

WilliamC, Wednesday, 2 January 2013 22:13 (six years ago) link

think he did a good job! (regardless of how much effort might have been needed)
i think it's more than just using a "different type of shirt" tho... i like the way he incorporated the nuances of soccer jerseys, like the horizontal/diagonal stripes for example - and i didn't even know about the stars/championships thing.
and speaking as a designer, i never read someone's blithering about their design process etc unless i'm *really* interested (so i read the blue jays part).

Imagine being being a big league ballplayer and having to take the field for the Diamondbacks, dressed like a goddamn ice cream man.

Playing baseball is hard. For players new to the Diamondbacks -- who have eight different uniform combinations, more than any club in baseball -- so is getting dressed.

Nice! I think they did something like that last year too. The Bowie Baysox (Maryland) became the Cangrejos Fantasmas (Ghost Crabs).

If the White Sox won't wear throwback shorts, maybe the Reds will.

not part of their history, tho
