They must have changed the cut of those uniforms, because they were awful in 1983 and awesome in 2008, in my opinion.
Just compared the uniforms, one major difference which I think affects the look quite a bit is the originals had a three inch navy blue band in lieu of a belt, while the throwbacks use a belt similar to the modern uniforms. Makes a huge difference, plus the modern material compared to polyester of the original along with the looser style players wear today really improves the look.
