Why our Uniforms Suck

Recommended Posts

I thought to myself that AJ Brown was the first player to actually make the uniforms look good.  I assumed that it was his physique or his shades.  But now I see an issue with design of the uniforms...

 

It's that damn font.  The numbers are so disproportionate that I'm sure AJ Brown jumped at his first opportunity to don a jersey with two consecutive 1s.

 

There will always be a difference in the amount of space that certain digits occupy (no pun intended).  But it isn't quite as jarring as what we're seeing with ours.

 

Notice the Byard jerseys.  The 3 definitely occupies more space in the original, but it doesn't exactly stand out in comparison.

Now look at this monstrosity.

That 3 literally occupies like 4x the space of the 1.

 

Brown probably realized that the 8 was going to take up way more real estate , and take the focus away from him.  Or what is apparently a pretty solid color scheme.

 

They really need to make these numbers more proportionate, or change the style.  The 1s look good.  Just about everything else is ass

I actually agree with this critique. 

 

You can can still get the Greek font feel but with a different number style than the one we chose

I don't agree with this point of view. It isn't greek...they seem to be traced by a 12 year old.

The greek style, is in the logo, in the embroided patches. The numbers doesn't have to be greek-ish styled nessesarly.

I’m not saying you have to have it. I’m just saying that if you want that Greek style lettering... there’s was a way it could be more visually appealing

This font was a good business decision. Go with the weak font with the new look unis. Everyone buys them regardless. Then in a couple of years go with more traditional numbers and people have to buy them again. Strunk’s gotta get out of this minority ownership somehow!
