First look at the fresh new whites for this season
Agreed, low effort and lazy. Looks like it was made in a day, the stripe is too wide and that triangle thing at the bottom of the shorts look awful. In graphic design classes we sometimes need over 50 thumbnails for an idea and it's a shame the university and or Nike doesn't put anywhere near that amount of effort.Awful. These look just thrown together with little thought or effort. They look like the unofficial sort of knock-off "uniforms" you can buy for a discount. Can we get some Syracuse hand-me-downs still?
That's the thing i think I hate the most. The cut is WAY too slim. They look more like wife beaters (god I wish here was a better word for these shirts), rather than bball jerseys.Actually, no, that's not even quite it.
This is actually Peak Rebrand, in that it utilizes the "columns" striping from the initial rebrand football uniforms in a way that would have made a lot of sense at the time. But we've entirely ditched that element with the new football uniforms, and as far as I know it's nowhere else in any of the other sports either.
And all the other sports have been ditching the two-tone lettering over the past year too.
I'll tell you what this is: it's a b-side castoff idea from like 2015 that we're bringing into the light of day just for the hell of it, probably because they just ran out of time to do it properly for this year. Which, y'know, whatever. But just know that this Nike template with white-on-white piping looks terrible on actual players:
Right. The only thing I'm truly bothered by is the lettering. Need to put that font and the two-tone to rest.If the big changes are coming next year, as tweeted out by Werner, then this is Nike putting us in the new cut that they have all Nike Elite schools wearing. And that is it.
