    I agree. They are great in my opinion. I like the font on the lettering a well. Very "classic" looking. The old fasion "Mr. Red" on the sleeve is the best part. Can't wait to buy one!

    Re: New Uniforms

    Now that several good pics are available at mlb.com and reds.com, I've decided that I really like these new unis. They are a clean and simple combination of tradition and modern style that look classy and timeless.

    I especially like the new home uniforms. Pinstripes never really fit the Reds, I thought, and the sleeveless look wore off on me a few years ago. Good job to the folks who consulted on these designs.

    This thread is the essence of Redszone in a nutshell.

    I love 'em.

    Re: New Uniforms

    Got home from RedsFest a bit ago. The new uniforms are absolutely beautiful. And I can be a tough critic. they're quite retro, but in a good way...I think these are uniforms that other teams will be jealous of. The distinguishing feature, as others have noted, really is the font. Greg Rhodes said that the font was created for the Reds and is totally unique in baseball.

    The white home uniforms are the best I think -- very simple, white trim, red piping down the legs, so the lettering, the numbers and Mr. Red really stand out.

    Denorfia got a huge round of applause by the way. Very funny.

    Here are some pictures taken by yours truly, the worst photographer in the world. Coffey, who modeled the away uniform, ran down the runway (of course) so I didn't get a good picture of him. Please note Ryan freel, who makes even this uniform look sloppy. Awesome. I'm also throwing in a photo of one of the Reds cars, so you can see that the font has already been implemented all over the place.

    I have many, many, many things to say about the rest of the fashion show but I'll save them for the general thread.

    I like them. Sleek, simple. A bit retro and a bit new. Well done.

    Re: New Uniforms

    Based on the photos from the link Always Red posted, the only drawback I've seen so far is that, with the new font on the backs of the jersey, the letters take up so much space that Denorfia's name uses up most of the back fo the jersey. Now imagine trying to fit a name like Hollandsworth or Spooneybarger on the back of that without it looking bad (talking about the name on the back of the jersey). Notice on the front, the vertical arching of "Cincinnati" makes it easy to fit the whole city name on the front. Why not use the same style for the names on the back? Well, other than because vertical arching takes more time for the equipment manager to sew on there, especially the way the Reds go through pitchers.

    Re: New Uniforms

    I'm loving the new uniforms. I was stuck near the back during the "fashion show" and didn't get a good angle as they were being unveiled, but once the appeared on merchandise racks I got a great view of them and loved what I was seeing.

    Also, for those that hated the black, I don't think you'll be disappointed. The only black on the uniforms appear to be on the trim to give the logos/lettering/numbers a sharper look, and IMO it looks very, very nice.

    Really like the unis. I hated the black...total marketing gimmick. The new jerseys are no nonsense and very professional.

    I've posted the link for the pics on the website. In Denorfia's first pic he looks straight out of Zoolander.

    Re: New Uniforms

    One of the things I liked about the vest as it allowed more color to be seen on the Reds uniforms. As the new home jerseys look now, all you see is white. Kind of like a hospital uniform. The only red will be the socks which you don't see anymore and that gawd awful piping which makes them look like the Red Sox. 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.
