Seems that the Suns Uniform Tracker Twitter was right, according to those who attended the event this weekend. There apparently was a season ticket holder/sales pitch event this weekend and at that there was a sizzle reel that featured these uniforms.

I don’t hate them. They just kinda look like a pale imitation of the 1993s. Like, literally.

Actually like the whites more than the purple, which is a reversal for me.
Okay that’s just weird because I was about to say the same. I actually like the whites. And I typically prefer the purples.

Not bad but cheap looking. Better than the previous years I guess.


I think the cheap look is because it is a computer rendering. I think the color will pop more in real life.

Similar to but a big improvement over the ones that leaked last year.

Curious what the shorts will look like.

Also, are they going to have a white ball in the Suns streak at center court? That would look odd.

Ishbia's first misstep.

These remind me too much of those AWFUL unis we had in the middle of that 10-year purgatory. White is better than the purple, but they look like unfinished sketches to me.

yeah… they’re kind of a mishmash of the 93/Dragic/number font of last year.

I kinda like them, they could be better, but they are better than any since at least the Nash era.

Honestly, these are as plain as can be for "traditionally modeled Suns uniforms. Still that seems to be the going "aesthetic" with contemporary uniforms, especially in the NBA. I'm not sure who is specifically setting the style template for these things, but they are terrible at their jobs.

No wonder everyone in the real world who is into jersey culture ends up collecting and wearing retro jerseys instead of the crap players are wearing these days.

The things is, most of those retro jerseys were also criticized when they first came out. The suns 90’s Sunburst logo is beloved, but I remember when they first came out and people referred to them as the exploding armpit jerseys.

It seems they're more into variety than ever before. Teams have 4 or more uniforms a year now plus throwbacks. More attempts leads to more strikeouts though. These are better than the basic jerseys we've had for the last decade but I need to see them on a player to really judge.


I just hope they roll back out the old western font jerseys as a throwback design in the next year or two.

I have never been a fan of them

These are top 4 in my opinion.
1. Western Font
2. Sunburst
3. The Valley
4. New Modern Sunburst

They are much cleaner than the OG sunburst. But I agree with Bobster that the basketball needs to be orange.

I guess it shows just how hard it is to please everyone. The white basketball is probably my favorite part of the new design.

Every year it seems this thread gets posted. And my first glance thought is always.

"New Jersey? I thought the Nets moved to Brooklyn."

Oddly enough, this is the first white jersey that's gotten a lot of praise in a long time.

This is the best white jersey since the sunburst/Barkley years. Not saying it's on the same level but it's good.

I saw a mock up of a white Valley jersey and that looked really good.

Here's a look, for any interested. Wish we'd do this for an alternate.
