Not good.  I recently bought a t-shirt from the Sound Garden that would have been a much better starting point...

I like the idea, I just don’t think the execution is there.

How often are they going to wear these awful things?

This looks like someone forgot a deadline and threw this crap together the night before. So unimaginative, and quite frankly ugly.

Compared to other City Connect jerseys I've seen, this is pretty unremarkable. 


Good news! I saw a dog today.

Nike: “We have all sorts of cool Baltimore stuff in this jersey. You just can’t see any of it, but trust us, it’s there.”

Looks like they're trying to pull off an NBA alternate jersey for the MLB. Not sure it works but I can appreciate the attempt.

 

Should have gone with "Charm City" instead of Baltimore on the jersey. I always thought it would be cool if a Baltimore NBA team went by Charm City and had it on their jerseys.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Charm City seems like a no brainer.

If you have to explain the connections to the city to the people that know the city, it’s pretty bad.

Guarantee you no one looks at it and says, “Oh, the font from that thing from MICA. Cool.”

If the font alone was in the Domino Sugar sign font, or the “Baltimore” font on the white and brown smoke stack driving by the city on 95, people would automatically get it. If people “get it” they’ll likely enjoy it.

Otherwise, I don’t think it looks bad. Black pants accompany these it looks like, with white name plate and orange numbers.

The hat is great.

 

I think they should have made the jersey reversible with the "city map" colors tbh. 

 

I think it's solidly meh. They could have done a lot of other things (the Domino Sugar font would have been a great idea) but I guess they wanted to go safe.

Before this leaked I was worried they were going to go overboard and do something like "Dem O's Hon" on the jersey in the usual script. We got the opposite. What's the point of putting a significant part of it on the inside lining?

 

I do like like the hat though.

BTW someone (I think Reeta) noted that "Baltimore vs Yall Whores" should have been done, and I can't even lie...that's pretty great.

The video is legit imo and I think the players are actually going to look dope in the full jerseys (the socks are gonna pop).

I wish they did more with the colors on the merch other than the socks which I may actually get.
