I'm concerned that the new belt buckles the Minneosta Vikings will have this season on their uniform pants is the final piece to the puzzle for their total domination of the NFC North for the next three decades.....

What does this have to do with a Sox uniform change in the Sox forum?

This is an issue that obviously requires the bringing out of the big guns.

If you think they're doing a good job overall then yeah, it probably doesn't bug you, and that's fine. But for people who see a consistent series of mistakes, it's maybe just another in a long line.

Oh, and I will also say that I think the stripe does make a difference. I personally think the pants and jersey do look worse with only a black stripe. If you look around the league, most teams that have some kind of stripe or piping running down their pant legs go with more than one color. There's a reason they do that. It just looks better.
100% correct.

And to the snarksters asking "what does marketing have to do with uniform pants?!?!?!111?", the marketing department does not just control advertising, but basically all things relating to the team's image or brand. They are the ones who make uniform decisions because the uniforms are essentially a message they want to convey to the public. Ask any of the market people or designers, and they will throw out buzzwords such as "we feel the black and silver convey a message of tradition yet sleekness..." or some crap like that. Brooks said about eliminating the diamond sock that they felt it was important to increase visibility of the Sox logo to strength their brand. So, yes. Marketing made this decision.

Oh, and "Bah Gawd, King! That's HANGAR's music!"

When you put it in this way, then I understand how you feel about it. Again, it doesn't bug me, marketing or aesthetically. But again, I just don't pay that close attention to it. Neither side of the argument is wrong IMO, but that doesn't mean dissenting opinions can't be respected.

It does not look as good to me either.

Yeah, I'm sure everyone here has had a bad day or two where it feels like everything's going wrong, but you're able to internalize your frustration until something completely and utterly stupid pushes you over the boiling point. That's basically what's going on here.

I completely see how some people won't care one way or the other about it, but I honestly cannot fathom how anyone would look at this image and think the Sox made an upgrade. At best, it's a completely pointless and parallel move which begs the question... Why? Why why why???

That pretty much hits the nail on the head.

I suspect that you are talking about the red piping that the White Sox had on their uniforms in the 1950s, I SUSPECT the reason for that was because starting in the 1920s the White Sox incorporated red into their color scheme. So I think the White Sox were using their traditional colors and pretty much copying the look of the Yankees uniform. I think red is the most commonly used color in the uniform history of the White Sox.

You wouldn't ask that if you saw his Facebook rants on the topic.

You can't tease something like this and then not provide a link or quotes!
