2016 NBA All Star Game Jerseys Revealed

The jerseys feature a KIA AD where Jerry West used to be!

No sleeves, no problem!

Yesterday, the 2016 NBA All Star Game Uniforms were unveiled for both the Eastern & Western Conference. The pair of blue and red jerseys will be worn on the court in Toronto on February 14th. Made by Adidas, each uniform design draws inspiration and pays homage to the original Toronto Huskies jerseys of 1946.

I’m certainly a fan of the simple design, as well as the the classic inspiration. The back of the uniforms feature Toronto’s skyline and many other unique nods to Canada.

Interestingly enough, the uniforms will feature a “KIA” patch advertisement on the front. This is the first time the NBA is “testing out” uniform advertising, and yes the jerseys sold at retail will include the Kia ad on the front.

Detroit Red Wings Unveil 2016 Stadium Series Uniforms

2016 Detroit Red Wings Stadium Series Jersey

The Detroit Red Wings will hit the ice on February 27, 2016 wearing a uniform many Wings fans couldn’t have dreamed up in their worst nightmare.

Considering the franchise has been around since 1926, most were expecting a classic design, or at least some sort of hybrid; that is certainly not the case. Check out these futuristic uniforms the Red Wings will be sporting on the ice at Coors Field against the Colorado Avalanche in early 2016.

It reminds me more of a college uniform than a Red Wings sweater! Thankfully for jersey traditionalists, this uniform will be worn only once this season (and hopefully thats it!)

2015-16 NBA Christmas Jerseys Leak, And They Actually Look Good!

NO SLEEVES, NO SLEEVES, NO SLEEVES!

The basketball Gods are on our side; the 2015-16 NBA Christmas day uniforms have leaked 7 months early and they have no sleeves! It’s a sad reality for basketball and jersey fans, however we can all rejoice that this years Christmas day games will be sleeve free.

Shown below are the proposed uniform designs for 26 NBA teams (the NBA hasn’t released its schedule for Christmas Day so many of these uniforms will not see the light of day). You’ll notice the very classy holiday script font across the front along with the use of cream accents instead of white. In my opinion, these uniforms are beautiful. The NBA has finally redeemed itself from 4 years of terrible Christmas Day uniforms. Thanks to Uni-Watch for the images! Take a look below and let us know your favorite uniform design.

Apparently Adidas didn’t get the memo reguarding everyones negative feelings about the sleeved Christmas day jerseys. The fun doesn’t stop there! Check out the 2014 NBA All Star Game uniforms for the Eastern and Western Conference. You’ll quickly notice they take inspiration from the host city New Orleans. Jersey fans like myself wish the NBA would stick to classic designs and move away from the sleeved jersey concept.

Miami Heat & Brooklyn Nets to Wear Nicknamed Jerseys 1/10

NBA Nickname jerseys nets heat

At least they’re not sleeved jerseys! The Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets will be sporting their respective nicknames on the back of their uniforms on January 10th. This is the first time we’ve seen nicknames in the NBA since the 70’s when Pistol Pete Maravich and Walter “Bells” Bellamy wore them for the Atlanta Hawks.

Check out the uniforms for the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets below. As you can see Lebron James and Deron Williams went for something simple, while Ray Allen chose to resurrect his character Jesus Shuttlesworth from Spike Lee’s “Het Got Game”.

Minor League Hockey Team Will Wear “Gettysburg Address” Jerseys This Year!

Condors-Gettysburg-Address-Jersey

Minor League hockey teams have become notorious for wearing ridiculous and obscure uniforms on the ice. Many teams use these publicity stunts to draw media attention others auction off jerseys to raise money for charity. The Bakersfield Condors, well they will be wearing the most unique jerseys I have ever seen.

This Sunday to commemorate the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, the Condors will be wearing “Gettysburg Adderss” jerseys on the ice. The jerseys are complete with Civil War graphics and feature President Lincoln on the front. CRAZY to say the least. After the game, the jerseys will be auctioned off for charity. Let us know what you think about the Gettysburg Address jerseys.

San Jose Sharks Update Home and Away Uniforms for 2013-14 NHL Season

0820-sjs-wave01

The San Jose Sharks just released their new home and away uniforms for the 2013-2014 NHL Season. The team changed jerseys only 6 years ago, however performance issues caused the team to switch up to a more simple and clean look. Although it doesn’t appear much has changed on the jerseys, the Sharks ditched the teal shoulder area and stripe below the logo to lighten the jerseys for the players on the ice. The home and away uniforms look much like their black alternate jerseys now. What do you think of the changes? Tweet @rarevintagewear to let us know!
