After the Twins debuted their new uniforms last week, and all the chatter about the mets making changes I decided to mess around a little. And it got out of hand…lol.
Of course some are ridiculous, but, once started I had to finish.
You’ll be happy to know I have not used any drop shadowing. I included a variety of stirrups.
o Classic pins: No real changes to the pinstripes (wish they wore them more) other than color. I based the color off of the Twins new crème set, but lightened it just a bit.
o Whites: OK, not really white anymore. I based off of San Fran’s and the Phillies shade of crème, and again lightened it a little. Modified the sleeve piping in homage to the early 80’s sleeve cuffs (pre-racing stripe), used triple piping, orange/blue/orange. I also show a variant of the pants with the same triple piping along the seams.
o Blue home jersey: Patterned after the home whites, with Orange logo w/white border and orange piping, except the sleeve piping, used the Or/Bl/Or piping again.
o Blue/Orange pins: Yes, looks as bad as it sounds.
o Orange home jersey: Just to damn bright (I started an Orange/Blue pins, but had to stop)
o Blue hat (no orange button)
o Classic Road Grey: No changes other than the triple sleeve piping. Also included a triple seam piping variant on the road pants.
o Road Blue: essentially the same as Home, but with the classic “NEW YORK”
o Road Black: I know you hate the black, but it isn’t going away. At least I only included it for the road.
o Orange/White border: has a way to San Fran feel (better not let the Wilpons see it)
o Blue/Orange border: best looking of the three to me
o Blue/White border: basically the old black road jersey without the orange as the drop shadow. Does have a bit of a Dodger feel to it (really need to keep it away from the Wilpons)
o Blue hat
o Black Road hat: never worn at home. I actually used the Blue w/orange logo from the two-tone hat instead of the current blue w/white border & orange drop shadow
I would have liked to have not used the Black Mets Logo sleeve patch, but, changing that is a bit beyond my current skill set.
Nice job! As regular readers know I hate the black...but if the Mets insist on black it pairs up better with orange than blue. At least you can see the letters if they are orange.
I like those blue alternate road jerseys (again if there must be alternates at all). I'd even take an orange top over a black. I worry about blue with pinstripes.
Great great job on banging these out. Comments?
