    Default Any news on the new uniforms?

    The switch to Nike almost assures us that this will actually be the year. The gift shop has been working to cycle all of the old stuff out for awhile now (they closed for a few days and then everything went on sale online).

    Is DC even getting a presser of some type? Will the new tank commander have a new uniform to hold up?

    PS - I visited Indiana in April and was also told by a worker in the gift shop that the Mad Ants will sport a blue and gold color scheme starting this season.

    Mark Boyle confirmed that the Pacers will indeed have new uniforms, and he has seen them. It's happening, just not sure when they'll unveil them.

    I wonder if these are actual new uniforms, with a redesign and what not, or Nike just made a few tweaks and the swoosh is on there. Knowing this summer, it's tweaks.

    We've needed new uniforms for years now. Of course we'll finally do it when we're trotting out our worst roster in a decade.

    Should have done it four years ago after the 2013 run when our hype was at an all-time high. The sales would have been nuts.

    I also wonder when they will announce their jersey ad sponsor

    I can't remember if it's required but I mean the NBA is a business so every team is going to do it

    Orlando's is Disney, obviously

    Knowing this offseason Indy's will be Viagra

    Solozzo is 100% correct. They should have rolled out new uniforms right after the 7 game ECF against Miami

    I have seen the Christmas Day jerseys. They're different for every team this year. The creativity in those makes me pretty excited for the regular jerseys to have some new flare, but I'm sure they'll be much more conservative (with most teams) in the standard jersey. Unfortunately, I have no clue when anything will release, so I'm in the dark there. But I'm definitely looking forward to what I've seen.
    It's a new day for Pacers Basketball.

    They're definitely going to be more than tweaks from what I understand. Completely new design.

    Please share. My guess is minor minor minor minor tweaks with a Nike swoosh. I think they might bring out an alternate jersey we've never seen with that new secondary logo on it. But all new threads I'd have to see them or have proof to believe it. MUSpace seems like he knows so I'm looking forward to the response. Thanks

    I just know that Mark Boyle said they're a brand new design. It was on Twitter. He said he couldn't discuss details though.

    I thought if a team is getting a new design they can't have an alternate until the next year per NBA rules. Banana suits were introduced a year after the latest uniforms were released and the gold pinstripes weren't used until 99-00 season? (Pinstripes were released in 98-99 I believe)

    I haven't seen them myself, but I have also heard that they are a fairly significant redesign. Colors remain the same however - including the Gray trim.

    Another change for 2017-2018 (maybe not new news), is the changes to the "Global Logo" and secondary marks:

    Starting in 2016-2017, the NBA began to reassign the teams' individual marks into "Primary Icons" (using Partial Marks when available), and "Global Logos" (the former primary logos, that are designated for "some international usage"). This is the Pacers' Primary Icon (formerly, a Partial Mark):



    Here's the new Secondary Mark (again, you've all seen it now):



    The change comes with the Global Logo (former primary mark). Since 2005-2006, this has been the Primary (and became the Global Logo in 2016-2017), but is no longer part of the collection:



    This mark has been replaced by the former secondary logo - this now essentially becomes the primary or "Global Logo":



    Hope this isn't too confusing...

    The classic P with the Pacers font is awesome and has been used since 1990 (with a slight update in 2005, most notably to the font). That's a shame if it won't be used anymore.

    The new secondary logo is just atrocious looking. It would be cool if the person who made it was familiar with how the state of Indiana looked on a map, but instead it looks like they had Indiana breed with Rhode Island.

    At the very least, it needs a notch at the upper left-hand corner for Lake Michigan.

    Gotta be honest. None of those really do anything for me. Especially not the newer design with the oddly shaped state. That one is just butt ugly.

    Then the designer could go jump in the lake.

    The state logo is utter ****, no idea how that got beyond the brainstorm phase. Other than that, I just wish they would get rid of the grey outline.

    No, while the logic is solid on the surface, if that was the reasoning then the team should be changing them AGAIN now to boost merch sales with a crap roster. IOW, whatever reason(s) exist to change the unis now have no bearing on the reasons to have changed the unis in the past and the gains from those sales, and hype, would've already been banked. This would be a secondary opportunity.
    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.

    I'm basing the entire offseason on what the new uniforms look like. If they are cool, I'm optimistic about Leaf/Sabonis/Dipo being good. If they suck, we're in deep ****.

    I like the idea of something utilizing the state as part of the logo (afterall it is the Indiana Pacers)... But not sure a badly stylized version of the state is really any kind of answer. Just use the real state, or only soften it a bit to simplify it.

    OTOH, considering their lack of marketing outside of I465 maybe they should've just used a stylized version of the I465 loop. Green?

    Using a bad version of the state outline is a mind numbing decision. It would be a fine logo if they used the actual outline.

    Ain't that the truth!

    May as well have the monument from the circle on the jersey as a shoulder patch. Which could actually look pretty good, but would blow the whole "Indiana" part of the name.
