I found a New Era one (with the MLB logo at the back) at a Lids store in a mall in Cincinnati. I also know for a fact that you can get the all red in a more fitted version with the C-Reds logo in the back at Dick's and other places.
As for me, I like the Reds uniforms with just a couple tweaks. First, wear the all red caps home and away. Second, the shirts under the vest jerseys should always be red. Third, every player on the team should be required to wear high red socks, like Hudson and Wagner. If the team needs color contrast on the road, my preference would be to ditch black and go back to navy blue, as the team did during the 50s and 60s (I believe). I also would get rid of the numbers on the front of the away jerseys, which just look asymmetric.
I am a picky SOB.
