Thanks for sharing! I really like the CBJ one. The simplicity of the design and the white lettering against the blue background looks nice.

I think it's good, but crossed cannons make it look like the logo for the Boston Cannon's lacrosse team



Then again, we already did copy their mascot...


and yes, his name is...

Well, at least he looks less...phallic. In fact, if the stated goal was to make the cannon idea more kid-friendly, theirs does a much better job of it.

CBJ is too generic for the team. Would make a nice sweatshirt, however.

Wide red strips out of proportion to thin red strips in flag logo. Looks hacked together.

Baby blue is a no-go as well, though at least it doesn't look black on my TV !

Would still like to see a red jersey with flag and blue shoulders over blue shorts.

Not too bad. I am also not to big of fan of the baby blue. Just makes me think of the Penguins 3rd jersey. I am ok with red on the jersey, but not an all red jersey.

Oh and I miss Boomer!

That baby blue type would fit in with Union Soldier uniforms from the Civil War though. The Standard Uni was the dark blue overcoat and the lighter blue pants with the dark blue stripe on down the pant legs.

Some Union artillery units in the Union army wore red piped jackets.
Mostly I like the idea of a blue trimmed red jacket because it would look cool.
Yes, not a "blue jacket" but our sweaters also don't have brass buttons and pockets either. Mostly just not a fan of baby blue.

I don't like the baby blue on the sweater.
If we want to get "Civil War-y" we would have lighter blue PANTS.

Not bad. Actually, pretty nice! Would look even better with the CBJ Ohio Flag logo.
Wouldn't mind it with all dark blue top as well.

Anybody else eschew the round logo? I prefer customized, not cookie cutter logos.

This one's good too...

here is a new one:


on the team website, they have a video explaining the process of making the third jersey. they showed a clip of one of the templates being considered, and i modified it. on the original, the cuffs are white and the yoke is a lighter tone of blue, but i changed it. enjoy!

How cool would this be with the team's Cannon logo?

(The "C" looks too collegiate.)

Thats what my post said.... When I said "standard uni" I meant for the soldiers, not the CBJ players....

Actually your post didn't say that.
...and I look forward to arguing with you more about colors because I'm such a fashion maven.

So what are you arguing with me about JF?

Would you like me to fix my intial post so that it clairifies that I was talking about the Civil War soldier and not the CBJ unis? I thought I just cleared that up....

Yes, please fix your original post.

The OP posted a 'dark' union blue and a "baby" blue version.
I was nastying on the baby blue version.

And FTR... I think there's a manly difference between the 'denim' blue of the typical union soldier pant color, and the girlie blue they added to the CBJ palette last year.

Tough fashion choices, Jf, "Wonder what color of flip-flops I should wear, today?"
