Best and Worst Uniforms of 2018

Recommended Posts

Yes (my son was with them that year), and everyone gave Surf crap for those uniforms and going hatless.  Now everyone is doing it!

But I much prefer the 2018 look to 2015

It's funny how trends go full circle and the uniform types that we used to consider "ugly" or "weird" have become the norm.

Back in 2013, the Oregon Crusaders (in their inaugural year in World Class) decided to wear uniforms made out of spandex, to be used for that season only. We all laughed at/criticized them at the time, but little did we know that type of fabric would become the most popular among uniforms just five years later.

For reference...

Looking through a 2018 lens, they probably should have gone hatless.

I hate the Cadets’ costume. It does not show well on the field.

Really? Admittedly I haven't seen them live but I think they actually present pretty well on the field from videos I've seen. It does a good job of maintaining the skeleton of the traditional Cadets uniform

Close up I'm not the biggest fan

I agree, but I think that ship has already sailed.

Methinks the trend has cleared the harbor.

Funny, I have the opposite reaction. I like the Cadet uniform on an individual basis. It is rather daring and edgy, while hinting at the original. But on the field, all the erratic stripes ruin the visual impact of formations, making them look fuzzy and indistinct.

The visual effect is the same as "dazzle" camouflage on warships, which is an attempt to fragment the ship's silhouettes, making it harder for an enemy to judge distance and direction.

Wait. Jersey Surf started the whole casual trend, not Bluecoats?

2003 Down the Shore show really started the trend... one of my favorite shows in 2003.
