That is a good way to describe those uniforms. I wasn't living in the Chicago area at the time when they were rolled out and remember people considering it another ugly White Sox uniform. I only liked it because the Sox were my team and it was less ugly than the Veeck uniforms. it wasn't that bad in the context of the early 1980s in a way that the previous uniform did not.
Today the 1980s uniform only succeeds as nostalgia. It only does that with White Sox fans. And it wouldn't do that if it weren't for the 1983 season.
