    Default Pacers Breaking Out Pinstripes on Friday

    http://blogs.pacers.com/pacers-break...pes-on-friday/

    We will be wearing the 97-05 pinstripes tomorrow night. It boggles my mind that we have worn multiple retro uniforms over the past decade, but never once have busted out the classic Flo-Jos. Why are we doing the pinstripes before the Flo Jo's when the pinstripes are the more recent jersey? Oh well, I'll be there in my Hardwood Classic Reggie Flo-Jo.

    maybe there's some sort of creative licensing issue that can't be resolved since FloJo passed?

    Either way I'm just ready for a new Uniform for our team. The only real difference to me between the pinstripes & our current uniforms is the pinstripes. (yes I know there are other differences but it's more similar than it is not).

    Those throwbacks from last year really have me wanting to go back to Royal Blue instead of the navy blue we use now.

    It makes you wonder. The Pacers have to know that the Flo-Jos are probably the most popular jersey in the history of the franchise. But wouldn't you think there would have been something in the contract between Flo-Jo and the NBA/Pacers saying that the Pacers have the right to redistribute them, etc? They are still sold in the gift shop.

    Agree 100%. This is our eighth season with these jerseys. That's the same amount of years we had the pinstripes (97-05) and is one more year than we had the Flo-Jo's (90-97). These current jerseys do not deserve to outlive either of those uniforms. I've been bored with our uniforms for about four years now. They have to be some of the most bland uniforms in the entire NBA. They aren't bad, but they certainly aren't great either. We played it too safe when we designed them and have had them for far too long. We have an excitable group of likable players right now. I can't think of a better way to move some merch than by unveiling some popular new uniforms.

    Although I love the flo-jo's, that George pinstripe looks great.

    Also, I completely agree that we should go with a royal blue for the next jerseys. I have a royal blue Hibbert throwback (risky purchase to make last year now that I think about it) and it looks great.

    Last I had heard, this is the last year for the current uniforms.

    Crazy reason/idea No. 1? That the next jersey iteration is already in progress, and it's going to harken directly back to the Flo-Jo jerseys. Maybe the Pacers have had the idea for a while and don't want to pull out the Flo-Jos and rain a bit on their own parade. Not sure that makes sense, it's just a thought.

    I too wish we'd go back to that bright royal blue, seems like half the league has navy in their uniforms. Warriors are a royal/yellow color scheme again now though, so that could be a problem I guess. But who cares, these are gorgeous.



    I've just gotten pretty bored of the current ones. They're not bad or anything, except the banana suits, just...meh. I hate how the side panels on the aways are navy instead of white/yellow too, always have.

    For tomorrow night? I think it's definitely going to be the home whites, like in the picture.

    The Pacers also put this picture up on facebook:

    I figured, I'm just holding out hope. The whites are the ugliest of the three options, IMHO. I would be about hoping they'll be selling them in the gift shop, but I'm not getting a white one. Yuck.

    Haha, and I love the white pinstripes. I do prefer the FloJo's, though.

    Very excited to hear this since I will be making the trip up from Georgia for the game. Now all I have to figure out is how to dress for the cold. I don't even own a winter jacket.

    I think we talked about this before. I would hate to go back to the whimpy Royal Blue. I love the Navy blue. In fact I still love our regular road navy blue uniforms. Still one of the best in the NBA. The home whites are OK. I kinda like when they wear the gold at home

    I don't like the pinstripe. Do like flojo's, but those were Navy also

    I'm salivating at the George pinstripe. I won't be able to make the game, so I hope they hit the store sometime soon.

    They're doing this because of the huge winning streak at home we had against Miami in these jerseys, aren't they?

    The pinstripes are so awesome. My favorite Uni they have ever worm. Like the flo jos too though, don't get me wrong. It looks real nice on PH

    No, they would have gained complete control. They may have to pay royalties for merchandise sales, but that is all.

    I like that the colors match the state flag. I wouldn't want to deviate from that.

    Not sure about anyone else but seeing the #24 on that pinstriped jersey brings back bad memories.

    I like that thought, and it would make a lot of sense for that to be the case. Fingers crossed!
