Again, inside the wishbone C thre should have been a contrasting color to make it stand out. I know I'm in the minority, but I really don't like the home uniforms. The Reds uniforms over the last few years really stood out as something different, black or not, but these just look generic.
The away uniforms look nice, but nothing special. Once again, the Diamondbacks went to the designer and came away with a uniform that had color, style, and just looked like something I'd like to buy. I won't buy one of these. I have a 20-year old Bench jersey that looks much the same and I don't wear it because it is so bleached out.
Now that I've seen more pictures of them I've changed my mind about them. I originally said that they were Blech! I was wrong. They're even worse than that----they are outright boring. Ugg!
I'm with you WVRedsFan.
BTW, there was a photo of a player with his back to the camera (I think it was Brandon Phillips) where it looked like you could see the red jersy showing through his white pants where it was tucked in. What's the weight of this fabric? It looks cheap based on that photo.
