Paul here, making a rare weekend appearance because we have another MLB update.
So: Someone snapped this shot of an Atlanta replica jersey rendered in Nike’s new tailoring template (see above). And how does the placket break compare with the old version? Let’s take a look:
Again, the new version is a replica jersey, so we can’t yet be 100% sure that this is how it will look on-field. But it looks like they’ve repositioned and/or resized the script. The placket break still runs through the “a,” but in a different spot. More importantly, the headspoon piping runs directly behind the eye of the “a” so that the eye is now filled in, which looks like shite. Looks like the yellow band on the tomahawk handle has also been clipped, which likewise looks like shite. (Simple solution: Scrap the tomahawk already.)
In addition, the sleeve piping has been moved down to the end of the cuff:
Again, that’s a feature of the new template — all sleeve trim is now attached to the cuffs.
Update: My bad for not realizing that the photo at the top of the page was requested from the MLB Shop by Mitchell Barbee. He’s written his own detailed article about all this.
(My thanks to Twitter-er @pyrolord314 for alerting me to the replica jersey photo.)
