    Reds unis to be revealed

    I know a thread has already been started, but I was wondering if someone who is attending Reds Fest today can take a picture of the new uniforms and post it here on RedsZone. I am unable to make it and I'm really pumped and curious to see how they turn out.

    According to rumor:

    * No vests
    * No pinstripes
    * All red caps at home
    * Different font on the road jersey -- sort of a 1930s carnival look to the font (if that makes any sense)
    * Mustachioed Mr. Red patch

    In other words, dreadfully dull.

    I'm not real sure how they could "spice" them up. In any event, I like the traditional look even if our uniforms haven't been as consistent down the years as Detroit or the Yankees.

    Just stay with the current jerseys. The pinstripes, the vests, the black bill, they all work to spice things up. I've got this image that they're going back to '70s/'80s style jerseys, and those were just so boring.

    Like this is what I'm assuming, a heavy ornamental serif style font.



    I like the one in the middle, it reminds me of rumble seats.

    sounds good to me. I don;t like the pinstripes or the black billed caps.

    Paul Lukas at Uniwatch had the template in one of his columns a while back but I haven't been able to locate it.

    I actually did find it (it was linked from Deadspin) and remember looking at it several months ago. The link was to a photobucket file that has since been removed. However, the jersey font is similar to the picture WOY posted (and I'm almost positive VPlum was using the typeface as an avatar at one point).

    I agree, pedro. Not a fan of the pinstripes, the vests, or the black billed caps--so all changes this year sound good to me.

    Uniforms unveiled at 5:50PM (EST) and, according to Reds.com, you can view the show via live streaming video.

    Ironic that the new uniforms are rumored to have no pinstripes, and the new website added pinstripes.

    no pinstripes with red trim around the neck, down the front and around the cuffs of the sleeves. alternate is basically the same i guess with white trim instead of black.
