Like the Crocs away grey, the NZ away is legit 6ers home and really liked the Cats red. Been too many plane mundane whites unis last few years.

re: Team jerseys

Kings need to know that white numbers on yellow tops do not work, also Wildcats, same thing with black numbers on red... Crocks, please do something with that green and Breakers please find something other than another shade of blue!

My issue is with the numbers. Hawks, Breakers and Crocs have been very hard to make out numbers on TV.

Never liked the new Wildcats jerseys.. so cheap. Needs white outline around the numbers at least, and bring back the black strip on the side plus cats logo.

This isn't hard is it?

Get one person to put the proposed top on and run around with a ball on court while another person goes up in the stands and takes a video...

Then look at it!

Oh, before you go and spend the cash to make 20+ uniforms........

re: Team jerseys

Anonymous^ you are spot on, even a devout NBL fan would be hard pressed to shell out over $100.00 for some of the horrid looking outfits I observed in week 1.

I can only hope someone out there can find some fashion sense and combine it with common sense!

The jerseys suck, no improvement to last year.

Hopefully with the LK revamp they focus on the apparel next season. I know LK is about running the league as a whole but the clubs are going through the motions so there needs to be direct intervention.

re: Team jerseys

Varying degrees of success. Sydney look good. Don't mind the roadmap on the back of the 36ers strip.

Not sure I like the Crocs in Away Grey and the new Wildcats strip looks like they picked a community ball singlet off the rack in a sports shop. No imagination, no features, no real logo.

36ers away i'm undecided, I don't think i like the white/grey fatigues thing. But at least it's different.

re: Team jerseys

The Sydney yellow strip would have looked great with two changes:

1. A purple strip down the side and purple piping on the collar and arms.

2. Purple numbers with a white outline, NOT WHITE NUMBERS!

May as well have been blind Freddy, trying to read those dog gone numbers.

Wildcats jereys isn't good at all. The one for the 2014/2015 season was the best, and they should of stuck to it, but you can understand the reason to change as it sells more.

re: Team jerseys

Do you really sell more that way though? Are people who already have a jersey going to change to a shittier looking one just because it is different?
I don't like it. The idea is ok but the execution is sloppy and lazy. I would have liked a Jawai jersey but they are ugly so I am just going to rock my Beal from last season.

re: Team jerseys

Really surprised at how the jerseys have regressed.

Maybe the slide in quality is good timing so LK will take up the reigns as the clubs are being amateurish. How about a league wide Nike or adidas deal that would be killer.

Need to think outside the square as well. Like scrap boring plain jerseys. Come up with some crazy designs that are unique and never seen before. Cairns should shamelessly copy the Tropics jerseys :P as they will be the only North QLD team next season.

And let's wrestle a bear in a cage, dress the players up in retro costumes at half time and introduce the players with comical pseudo racist remarks, yes that will work for sure.

re: Team jerseys

Sports clothing

Mainstream Australian fashion in the 1990s was heavily influenced by sports clothing, a trend that carried over from the fitness craze of the 1980s. Comfortable, stretchy clothing, like fleecy tracksuits, became common everyday attire. Clothing from brand-name sportswear companies like Nike and Adidas was considered highly fashionable.

The 1990s sportswear craze was also fuelled by the influence of American rap and hip-hop artists. Young Australian men flocked to wear back-to-front baseball caps and basketball jerseys like their favourite hip-hop stars. Extra-baggy trousers, worn low on the waist to reveal brand-name boxer shorts, were another hip-hop inspired trend.

Chicago Bulls basketball player Michael Jordan also helped popularise sporting attire in the 1990s by putting his name to products like Nike Air Jordan basketball shoes.

re: Team jerseys

Just meant the logo designs and layout of the jersey designs.. the ones these days look so plain and generic.. no flavor.

The Wildcats did a good job with the 2013 - early 2015 look, but these new ones are just amateur..

Lol, no, you're right, I think we already took a few steps back with the release of Straight Outta Compton, as good as a movie that was.

Strictly talking about Jersey designs here. lol

Perth one is neat, possibly just needs the cats head logo somewhere on it.
