New home jerseys are UGLY

Why replace the red curly W on all white? I hope it's just an alternate and not full-time

Reportedly this is the last year of the cherry blossom unis as well.

I mean they aren't terrible. 

That said, I'm not wild about the Capitol logo if that's what's on the hats. Also not wild with mixing the block letters with the curly W. Nice to see the interlocking DC make an appearance, but we're really mixing and matching 3 different styles with our branding - old block W letters, interlocking DC, curly W.

I remain uninterested in ones with Nike logos so prominently tacked on

Much like the roster, they scream apathy

A bunch of teams are doing multiple home uniforms for merch revenue, but this is a real downgrade, and the road uniforms are especially bad.

Which DC beer league softball team did they steal these from?

Been saying this for a little while now. Team hasn’t been around for even 20 years and is constantly going through image changes. Had a feeling they’d be bringing back the Curly W red hats with the white script jerseys because that’s how they introduced Crews but these two new additions are not it.

Red alternates was their best look.

I like the current road uniforms with the script. The blue alternates were great as well. The cherry blossom unis have grown on me.

Going back to block lettering brings back some awful memories.

Meh, it doesnt matter. May as well throw crap on the wall and see what sticks. Just like the roster.

Topic title is Linty's, not Imref, but since it had the most comments I picked his title for the merge.

I honestly like the pullover's features if not a pullover itself. I like the sleeve with the interlocked DC logo set over a DC map on an alternate like this, and I love the Capitol logo. No reds this year, which is OK in my book because they looked like a few other team's reds. To my eye, the Nats have 3 non-generic unis, which is a plus: the pullover, the City Connects, and the World Series Blues. I think the front of the road grays is awful, but the names and numbers on the back are OK.

No City Connect cap in the rotation. :shrug:

If they ever made that an alt, it would be the best selling jersey in team history

I don't care what they do with the uniforms as long as they don't do what the White Sox did and wear short pants.

We can but hope... ;)

With the 'pull-over' jersey, Nike are clearly on the road to doing the same as they have with soccer shirts - turning them into little more than a template T-shirt with a badge... :roll:

The first one is a lazy copy of the Atlanta Braves 2023 City Connect jerseys.  Mark didn't want to pay extra for original thought...

It also only has 2 of DC's 3 stars...perhaps a nod to all the great Nats players to hail from Panama...like Paolo Espino...

Just took more than a passing glance at the font for the road jerseys. Someone really looked at that and thought that was appealing versus painfully generic?
