Default Sox Road Uniforms Have Been Changed

Anyone notice the difference?

It is something that has been the exact same since September of 1990.

I am glad someone else noticed that! I was watching the game wondering if I had gone crazy or if anyone else had noticed that. I'm sure this allows for better marketing of the White Sox brand though.

I didn't see the game due to MLB network showing the Dodgers/Padres game, but I saw a couple game plays on the SOX homepage. It looks like the gray pants only have solid black piping now. However, they were wearing the black alternate jerseys which still had the white/gray sleeve trim. I wonder if the road gray jerseys will also just have the black piping on the sleeves. I can't imagine they would have the white/black piping and then not match the pants.

If this is the case, I think they should remove the white/black piping on the sleeves of the black alternates, just like they were when they were originally introduced in 1991. I always thought the black/white trim looked out of place when they wore the black alternates with the home pinstripe pants.

Well, this is the million dollar question. Tonight they wore the black top, and the stripes were there. However, if they took the stripes off the pants, wouldn't it make sense to take the stripes off the sleeves of the grey top also?

It looks like they replaced the black/white tuxedo stripe with a really thin black line. I don't know what the point of changing it would be. It looked fine the way it was.

It's really troublesome how often we can attach that quote to things this organization does.

Absolutely. When you're the White Sox, you want to eliminate white in as many places on the uniform as possible.

I refuse to buy a gray road jersey top until they bring back the diamond sock.

And celebrate a red Sox jersey like they did last year.

I'll advocate the return of the Diamond Sock before this.

I kind of like the black only piping to go with the black tops. But the black/white stripe needs to come back for the greys....hopefully we didn't scrap the grey tops....

I challenge you to read the first ten posts and determine what had changed. There was a reference to a "tuxedo stripe" and I had no idea what that meant. And then there was:

So I looked at sleeves in the pictures, and didn't see anything different. The only reference to pants at all was something to the effect of "if they took the stripes off the pants, wouldn't it make sense to take them off the sleeves too?" So, since the pants still had a stripe, again, I thought the reference was to sleeves.

It is really unbelievable at this point.
