The current White Sox uniform made its debut during the last week of the 1990 season. Including the 2008 season, it has now lasted 18 seasons. That is a very long time, especially for this franchise given the number of uniform changes it has had throughout its history. I am not necessarily calling for new uniforms, but I think this would be an interesting topic of discussion.

One thing I have noticed this season is the increasing popularity of the old Sox logo, the one with the batter over the SOX. I see more and more items with this logo at Grandstand and elsewhere, and I see more people wearing such items. I say that if we do make a uniform change down the road, we incorporate this old logo.

NO!!!!!

Don't mess with success. The reason why the current Sox uniforms and logo have lasted 18 seasons is because they are great. The only thing I'd entertain is the possibility of blending in a 3rd color (like the dark red that was used to accent the black and white unis of the 50s).

In my lifetime up until 1990, the White Sox went through a series of laughable uniform changes. First there was the gaudy "Red" Sox pinstripes (good for the funky early 70s I suppose), then the "pajama" untucked, big collar Veeck unis, then we had the ultra-tacky video game uniform in the early 80s and finally the super generic uniforms of the late 80s with the "Campbell Soup" C (or was than an "Einhorn E") on the cap. Yuck!!!! Finally, in 1990 they unveiled their "new" uniforms which returned to the classic style of the 50s and 60s.

That old logo that Veeck developed in the late 70s (the batter with the block SOX letters underneath) was cute and is a nice part of our past, but the current Olde English Sox logo is a classic.

The logo your talking about is from the early 80's. I would say a good portion of the people buying the merchandise (myself included) were either born or grew up in this era. As far as a change to todays uniform it depends on what is presented as the new look.

Absolutely not. The uniforms they've been wearing for the last 18 years look great, perhaps the best in baseball.

As for the popularity of the retro gear, its just cool throwback stuff. One must know there roots. I have an 83 throwback cap and one with the 1917 era logo on it and soon I'll be buying a 59 era throwback. My goal is to get a Sox cap for every era.

The only thing I ever had a problem with were the pinstripes. I think white with piping (like Detroit) looks much better. Plus, why copy the Yankees?

But other than that I think our uniforms are pretty solid. They can last another 100 years for all I care.

No, but I wish to God that the Bears would update their uniforms! That whole 3-stripe thing on the sleeves looks so lame now with the elasticized cuffed sleeves (as opposed to the long, loose sleeves that were around when this older style was created.)

Exactly. I love that logo because I kind of grew up with it and I generally like most of the retro gear associated with it, but there's a world of difference between liking something for nostalgic reasons and wanting to see you're favorite team trot out wearing it everyday.

Keep the current scheme. It's tasteful and classic.

Why do so many people like those awful black uniforms? The names on the back (with the combination of white and silver) just look like blocks. It almost looks as unprofessional as the teams that don't attach each letter separately onto the jersey (especially the Twins, who don't do it with pinstripes).

There's only one reason they look similar to the Yankees: the logo. It is only rivaled by the Yankees as the best logo in baseball.

According to this (http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/nyy/history/uniforms_logos.jsp) they did way back, when they first wore pinstripes in 1912 (same year as the Sox). The Yankees then took a couple years off from wearing them, then copied the Sox and went back to them.

Second paragraph.I will find the answer for certain tomorrow. If they ever wore black pinstripes, it was a manufacturer's error. Check this (http://ssur.org/research/TeamColors/Baseball/MajorLeagueBaseball/MajorLeagueBaseball.htm) out. The franchise hasn't worn black since 1908, and never as the Yankees. The MLB team sites are not run by the teams, and often have errors.

Nobody copied the Sox. They didn't invent it nor was it ever part of the team's identity in any way like it has been for the Yankees since pre-WWI. No one really cares, or really knows that the Yankees didn't invent the pinstripe. It's just their thing. Google "pinstripes" and see what comes up.

The fact that other teams wear them is irrelevant to me--let Colorado and Florida and Minnesota wear them all they want. I just don't want us copying the Yankees trademark. We'd look better with black piping. There's no mystique about "piping" in baseball lore. We wouldn't be emulating anybody really.

It's not the Yankees trademark, though. If anything, it's a baseball trademark. Again, teams have been wearing them for years. It's not like they just started to take it up to 'copy the Yankees.' Sounds like you just have major issues with the Yankees.

I like the idea of a solid clean white jersey (no pinstripes) but maybe as a home alt. like the vests used to be. I'd also like the black alts. to get rid of the black outline in the logo, numbers and names. Maybe rework the whole thing or get rid of it.

There may have been black in the Yankees unis way back, but it's all dark, dark blue now. pinstripes, logos, etc.

If you read articles, you'll see a phrase like "so and so donned the pinstripes" that means "so and so played for the Yankees."

I don't have any issues with the Yankees other than the general disdain (jealousy) that any non-Yankee fan has towards them. I respect them because they're the best franchise in all of sports history and I don't think we should copy them. Comiskey himself apparently admitted to copying them and it's a safe bet that Reinsdorf did too as I pointed out. I'm just being objective about a superficial and ultimately insignificant thing, and on top of that I'm a fellow fan so there's no reason to get all homery and defensive about it.

I don't like the vests at all. It just doesn't pop, I don't know. It really only looks good on Pittsburgh. They have precedent with vests and their uniforms have some nice trim around the shoulders that other teams don't. Pretty much all other vest teams just end up looking amateurish. Ours aren't terrible, though--they don't come within a mile of this crap:

http://baseballevolution.com/teams/images/indians01.jpg

I do like our black alts a lot. That's one thing that we started at the time and many other teams went on to copy us (very much ill-advisedly) in the 90's. I don't think we should ever get rid of that, just keep it as an "alternate" and not the default top.

The Yankee and White Sox logos can look similar. I was wearing my White Sox hat in Boston one night when a drunk Red Sox fan stumbled up to me and gave me a lecture about how the Yankees suck. My guess is he saw I was wearing a dark hat with a white letter-based logo on it and mistook it for an NY.

Also, to the guy who is complaining about the Sox "copying" the Yankees in 1912: why aren't you complaining about how our road gray uniforms "copy" whatever team it is that first decided to wear gray on the road? Or about how our numbers on the back of the jersey copy whatever team it is that first decided to wear numbers? Or about how our use of the term "short-stop" copies whatever team it was that first started using that term?

Really, find something else to worry about. I can send you a long list if you'd like.

Don't mess with success. The reason why the current Sox uniforms and logo have lasted 18 seasons is because they are great. The only thing I'd entertain is the possibility of blending in a 3rd color (like the dark red that was used to accent the black and white unis of the 50s).

In my lifetime up until 1990, the White Sox went through a series of laughable uniform changes. First there was the gaudy "Red" Sox pinstripes (good for the funky early 70s I suppose), then the "pajama" untucked, big collar Veeck unis, then we had the ultra-tacky video game uniform in the early 80s and finally the super generic uniforms of the late 80s with the "Campbell Soup" C (or was than an "Einhorn E") on the cap. Yuck!!!! Finally, in 1990 they unveiled their "new" uniforms which returned to the classic style of the 50s and 60s.

That old logo that Veeck developed in the late 70s (the batter with the block SOX letters underneath) was cute and is a nice part of our past, but the current Olde English Sox logo is a classic.

I like them how they are now, but I would not mind if they added a little red around the logo and numbers. They just need to make sure it is a very small amount of red. Also I love the black jerseys. I think they are sweet and I do not think they look like softball jerseys, which people keep saying.

Love the current uniforms, and I love that after 18 seasons 90% of the respondents want to keep them.

The solid, alternate jerseys are a relatively new trend (since about the mid 90s I think) that has really taken off. I'm not sure how long they'll stick around, my guess would be until people stop buying them. I don't mind them, as a once in a while thing.

I would've probably liked it if the current scheme had appropriated the late '50s motif with a touch of red piping from the get-go in late '90.

Personally I think the Blacks are the best version of this era (used to be the vests). As far as the Chicago writing I like that idea.

I agree on perhaps revising the script on the road jersey to match the style of the SOX logo script. That's it. I like everything else.

As to the retro phase, the team is pushing that red/white/blue merchandise hard this year due to the 25th anniversary of the 1983 team. The Sox are wearing those unis as throwbacks later this season.

I never got the old batter logo. It reminds me of a pedestrian crossing sign. I like the current (old) logo much better.

VeeckAsInWreck

i think the road uniforms should have the word CHICAGO written in old english across the chest just like our sox logo.

We would have the most "gangsta" uniforms in the league hands down. Although we already kind of do anyway.

What I would like to see as an alternate uniform is our current home uniforms without the pinstripes and piping (like Detroit) but I would like to see the hats with the silver bills being brought back as an alternate cap.

Outside of that I still like the current uniforms, there is nothing wrong with them.

The White Sox want to be one of those teams that hardly ever change their uniform style like the Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers ,Cardinals, and Tigers. That is understandable after the numerous uniform changes in the 70's and 80's.

With that said, I voted no but I wouldn't be opposed to the White Sox adding a black away jersey with the script "Chicago" on the front.

Also, the current uniform is the one they won the WS in. There's already some history in the current uni. It is destined to go down as one of the greatest if not the greatest Sox uniform of all time like the 1917 S-O-X logo.

Thome25

The logos look nothing alike.

Comiskey II was modeled after Yankee Stadium. Don't think the uniforms weren't also chosen in 1990 with ol' pinstripes in mind.

Shows how much you know.....The current uniforms were actually chosen with the 1950's Sox uniforms in mind.....most notably 1959.

The constant changing of colors and uniforms in the MLB really hurts the tradition of the teams doing it. I dug the wild changes the Sox made in the last century, but I really appreciate their sticking to one tradition now that barely any team is.

I could entertain changing the script of the road uniform, but I don't hate it. But it would match a little better if it was more old-english/gothic/whatever.

I remember back in 1999 when MLB did the stupid "Turn ahead the clock" promotion. The Yankees refused to participate. George Steinbrenner was asked why the Yankees were not wearing a futuristic version of their uniforms, and he replied: "We are."

That's what I like about the current uniforms. If we keep it for even longer than we already have or never change it for that matter *crosses fingers* then it becomes a tradition.

Plenty of teams have proud uniform traditions and as I said in an earlier post the Yankees, Red Sox, Cardinals, Dodgers, Giants, Tigers, Cubs etc. have all worn basically the same uniform for years and years.

I want the White Sox to do the same.

People who aren't old enough to remember or weren't following the Sox back then might not appreciate how great it is to have a consistent, well-liked brand identity (logo, uniforms) for the Sox.

When I was a kid back in the late 70s and early 80s, the Sox uniforms were a frickin' joke. The Cubs had their long-time logo and blue pinstripes and the Sox...well....what the heck were the Sox uniforms? For a while it was those awful "throwback" ones of the late 70s, then it was the huge block letters across the chest, then it was the late 80s uniforms that were generic looking with that goofy, loopy "C". The Cubs were classic, stable, tradition while the Sox were desperately tried to re-invent their image every few years....and each new uniform made us Sox fans the subject of ridicule.

I've been a Sox fan since the softball uniforms were current, and I have a soft spot in my heart for those and the "winning ugly" era uniforms.

That being said, I think the current look is darn near perfect. Ditching the vest was a good idea, I never liked how that looked - but at least it was a real vest, and not one of those fake ones with black sleeves sewn right on to the jersey...well, it was after a while.

The only change I'd make is just make the player names on the black alts into solid white, the white-black-silver just makes it too hard to read.

I agree. Since we only average 12 Sunday Home games (excluding playoffs of course :D:) per season, I would like to see a retro Sunday promotion whereas they wear a retro uniform or alternate uniform since we have such a rich tradtion in uniforms (although some have been pretty fugly). I think it would make a great promotion, however Brooks mentioned earlier they need MLB approval for such type of promotions at least a year in advance.

I also think the Cubs and SOX miss golden opportunities to show off vintage uniforms from both teams. Each interleague series could showcase a specific year by having both teams wear vintage uniforms. One home and one away for each team. I think that would be a great promotion - again on Sundays!

Don't mess with success. The reason why the current Sox uniforms and logo have lasted 18 seasons is because they are great. The only thing I'd entertain is the possibility of blending in a 3rd color (like the dark red that was used to accent the black and white unis of the 50s).


We have silver as our 3rd/accent color. The silver accents the black and white now as the red used to in the 50's.

Personally, I'm glad we don't have silver accents on the hat (like the red outlined the white on the 50's era sox hats).

"Here is just kind of a crazy idea. I know we were pioneers with the solid black alternate jersey. Why don't we be pioneers and come up with a third alternate pants: all black, (Maybe with a stripe down the legs like on the gray pants). I know at first every one is going to jump on this and say hell no, that would be terible, but if you think about it, it might actually be kind of cool for a change. The alternate black jersey with black pants could look very bad ass. Or even on the road black pants with the gray jerseys could look cool. But I think we should be the first team in baseball to re-introduce black pants as an alternate third pants option."

In my lifetime up until 1990, the White Sox went through a series of laughable uniform changes. First there was the gaudy "Red" Sox pinstripes (good for the funky early 70s I suppose), then the "pajama" untucked, big collar Veeck unis, then we had the ultra-tacky video game uniform in the early 80s and finally the super generic uniforms of the late 80s with the "Campbell Soup" C (or was than an "Einhorn E") on the cap. Yuck!!!! Finally, in 1990 they unveiled their "new" uniforms which returned to the classic style of the 50s and 60s.

That old logo that Veeck developed in the late 70s (the batter with the block SOX letters underneath) was cute and is a nice part of our past, but the current Olde English Sox logo is a classic.

I like our colors now, since we're not the red-and-white-Sox, but we totally should've emulated the number shape on those jerseys. The ones we have now are generic. The Red Sox have a cool number design as do a few other teams. IMO that's the one thing we're really missing.

Exactly my thinking.

Tinker a little bit with the road uniforms. Maybe a number on the sleeve like the vintage Nellie Fox ones they sell. Also a change in the font would be fine.

Lose the black softball uniforms.

The truth is there will only be a change when the uniform loses its popularity in merchandise sales.

Make the socks white.

I remember the late '70s-early '80s logo, but I didn't really become a FAN until '83 with those uniforms. That SOX was based on a logo from 1920. The Sox were one of the first teams to abandon the powder blue uniform on the road. They were also the first in baseball to put the players' names on the back.

One other possibility, and I don't know how they would do it: Have home and road caps, like the Cards, Cubs, Tigers of today or the Sox, Brewers of the early '80s.

I don't see a need for a third cap like they have in St Louis.

The current black and silver Old English logo of the White Sox is really an updated version of the classic Old English logo of the 1951-1975 period. In fact, I prefer the classic red Old English logo of 1975 rather than today's updated black and silver Old English Sox logo. Side by side with the modern Old English logo, the classic actually looks better. If you look at it closely, the font's "S" and "O" are slightly different. It was a shame that the White Sox marketing department preferred an "updated version" of the Old English logo. So far as the web sites are concerned, this earlier Old English Sox logo is not displayed.

The White Sox marketing department could have saved a lot of money by simply adopting the classic Old English logo rather than submitting an updated version. Even though the 1950's Old English logo was great, with the navy blue Old English logo of the 1960's also great, the red Old English Sox logo of the 1971-1975 period was my favorite. If there is a uniform change, I would like the red pinstripes back with the classic Old English logo, not the updated one we currently have.

Look below, at the left is the 1971-1975 classic Old English logo, in the second from the left is the 1950's classic Old English logo, the third and fourth from the left is the red 1971-1975 classic Old English logo, and on the right is the current updated version.

How would it have saved a lot of money?

The only problem I have with the 70's red uniforms is that a red S-O-X logo with red pinstripes and red caps screams "Red Sox" to me.

IMO it's the same situation with the black S-O-X logo and black socks on the current home whites. We're not the "Black Sox" are we? (I would hope not.)

WTS.....I hope the White Sox DO NOT change their uniforms.....I'd like for them to become a tradition. (If they haven't already....The old english S-O-X and variations of it have been around for a long time.)

NEVER - these are the best they have ever had.

they are an adaptation of the classic uniforms they wore in the 50s and 60s and therefore are the in the basic style that has been worn the most.

And they have had the most success in them too - with the exception of the 1983 division championship all of their 1st place finishes have been in these uniforms, more or less.

1959. Great years (no championships) in 1964, 65, 67. And later in 93, 2000, and of course 2005. All in various versions of this uniform, which is also the best looking uniform.

So don't mess with it!

White with black pinstripes look very classy, as does the current logo. The black has the look of striking fear into the hearts of our opponents. Change nothing.

...and the limp wristed Cubbie Paw on their alternative jerseys don't?!?!?! :D:

Seriously, I thought the Cub brass voted those out last season. Now they're back.

I always tease my brother-in-law Cub fan about those. They are so weak! Why not simply use the Cub logo and put the Cubbie Bear on the sleeve similar to their home pinstripes? I think that is the silliest-looking logo in the game today.

The pinstripes and road greys are classic... change NOTHING!
The pin stripes should last forever. this is the only one they should have.
In my opinion.

Nostalgia is the only reason I can see anyone liking this uniform

I do like the "Chicago" lettering though.

Interesting that they had "Chicago" on both the home and away jerseys and then switched in 1983 to the red-white-blue "softball style" where both the home and away jerseys had "SOX" on them.

I voted for no change; however, I am not opposed to having a few alternates, like retro jerseys to wear every once in a while.
