1.While I love that you kept the pinstripes, always liked them, historically pinstripes take a bit away from the timelessness of it. Teams that we think of that classically have them, seem to switch back and forth. We need our jerseys to be able to stick for 10+ years to help re-establish our new identity
2. Love the chevron on the one leg. That's the perfect use for it to keep that Game 6 jersey in there, but without the weird body lines it creates using the current design.
3. The Raptors are still Canada's team, if we do away with red, maybe maple leaf tips above the player's name instead of the classic triangles? Because, while a very cool addition to the shorts, really, we never really notice the leaf on the waistband, right?
4. To make up for stripping those classic elements, maybe implement the classic numbers?
Just my own opinions, but you've already done some great work here.

Perfect, just get rid of the pinstripes and fix that silly font.[/quote]


If you're getting rid of the pinstripes and the font I'm not sure what that leaves you. You're basically just saying you want white and black jerseys.

Exactly! lol

I thought the white and gold of those tops at the ring ceremony was so fresh and clean, and had a champion feel to it. I know it's a standard look, but it works for the Raps because of the black and gold OVO connection.

Never been a fan of the 'Raps-style pinstripes', remind me too much of barb wire which is pretty whack imo... I'd be ok if they had regular straight pinstripes. Also not into the old school whacky font... From a design standpoint, I'm into more of a classic/timeless look, but I respect everyone's taste is different.

Was just thinking about it the other day. I think we'll have to wait until next season.

We'll have to wait

If they showed us the new jerseys now, they wouldn't sell any of the current stock. They'll try and sell what they can of this year's jersey version throughout the playoffs, then they'll release the new jerseys leading up to the holiday season to boost jersey sales via Christmas presents.

For the logo, they mentioned a "tweak". So imo, I think its going to be a re-colour. Maybe add purple? Or go full gold and black? I'd be okay if they went black and gold. Its different from the other teams and they would stand out. They've also used a combination of there retro design on the city edition ( with Toronto ) and, went back to there old school retro nights during the past season. So I figured why not make a combination of both? Use the black and gold colour scheme and combine it with the Raps retro look. A minor addition with the "North" shorts and the city edition to it and this is the concept I came up with.

Again it was all for fun. Stay safe everyone !
the raptors don’t roll like that in terms of jerseys and logos. They go against everything the masses want because in true MLSE fashion they will force you to like whatever garbage design they come up with so I’m expecting something underwhelming. Did you not see how long it took them to bring back the OG jerseys even while most players around the league and the fans had it as one of their top jerseys ? They don’t go with what the masses like. They push their hideous designs on the masses and since people don’t have any real choices they’ll buy it.

The jersey is going to look like this and you can book it!

I think you're right. Every uniform in this thread is a mess.

The dinosaur isn't coming back, the purple isn't coming back and I think the only rework of the logo will be the wordmark around the basketball. That had never fit for me.... But I like the "watermelon" a lot.
