    Meh. I feel like the rest of the league is moving towards more aesthetically simple designs that are clean and we still look like uniforms that would have been in a 90s movie based on what they thought uniforms would like in the FUTURE.

    I don't know how someone can make an ugly uniform even more ugly but they did it

    I certainly still wouldn't purchase it. I need a rebrand that i like to ever buy another Rockets related clothing again. I only have extra large Rockets playoff games that we got free at the games that i wear for working out.

    I'm just glad they got ride of the wide shoulder area. Every time I wear the current jersey I feel like a shogan warrior the way the edge hang off my shoulders

    Well said. Exactly how i always felt.

    I'm not even begging for red and yellow anymore(though of course it's what i want most), i just want something nice that doesn't stray too far off the history of the team. If we stick with plain red and white/grey theme(i hate grey..so dull), i just hope they add an itsy bitsy touch of yellow/gold to the logo and uniforms and we at least get to wear our throwbacks minimum 10 games a year. A white, a red version of the current black alternates would be acceptable with a few touch ups/upgrades.

    I wouldn't even be mad if the rebrand was throwback inspired by our RWB dildo days IF they decide to use red as the primary color and blue as the alternate. No pinstripes. No dildos and no huge logo on the jerseys though. That original logo/wordmark/number font and alternate 'R' logo had great potential. The color scheme is also very Houston sports as it matches the texans and has blue matching the Astros and Dynamo.

    Unfortunately, thanks to the ridiculously large Nike check plastered on the front and advertising patches, say goodbye to "clean" forever.

    Can still have clean lines and not be overly cluttered with design features.

    I don't get too worked up over the Nike patch and a potential sponsorship patch. I'm much more annoyed by big bold chevrons, weird cuts, abrasive color combinations, bizarre logos, lame fonts, etc.

    Put this in the Tinman thread but did a quick and dirty red version of their black jerseys. Not sure if I made the Nike logo big enough...

    That being said going back to the classics is always my preference.

    Gotcha, I'm completely the opposite lol. Design the jersey however you want, just don't tack on ads and crap.

    Well I'm wondering if they actually will have the original throwbacks since it states it will celebrate iconic jerseys of the past. Those Nuggets rainbow ones and the original teal Hornets ones definitely fit that bill, the latter were shown with an MJ logo:

    Are the compression capri pants a mandatory part of the uniform now?
