    Overall, I am generally happy with the uniforms. I am a traditionalist who became a Duke fan in the 80s so the closer we are to those uniforms, the better (though no need to revert to short shorts).
    Seems like that would just look/be perceived as tacky on the part of whatever schools ended up with that. Not sure it would actually devalue anything.

    So, a tad worried.
    How? There’s no “shoulder pads” on this, looks like almost any other year.

    The internet sleuths are at it again. A Nike Instagram account posted a picture of a Duke uniform that you can purchase, which largely or completely resembles the one that Duke wore at the PK80 tournament in 2017-18. Might this be a sneak-peak at one of the Final 4 designs we will see this year?

    Duke basketball twitter put out a graphic on the new uniforms and also a suggestion that Duke may have up to six different uniforms this season, with some clues ahead of future reveals.

    I loathe it. A lot. Too monochrome except for the dreaded scourge of black. The chevron side panels look like a Mario-Kart accelerator.
    To reiterate, I hate this greatly.

    Me, too. Didn't see any need to mess with perfection.

    Especially in the OAD, we're all (increasingly) just rooting for laundry, so what happens when I hate the laundry with growing frequency?

    I don't know if I would use the word "hate" but I DO strongly dislike this uniform. I agree - way too monochrome (and boring) and the "Duke blue" seems to be slightly off shade to me (but it may be the photo?). I would definitely vote for the early 90's uniforms.

    It's main redeeming quality is to make us appreciate the old school look...back when Duke blue was, well, Duke blue, and back when none of the Cheats uniforms were darker than any of our uniforms...AND GET OFF MY LAWN too!

    so it's not just my browser that made the uniforms at the blue-white game look a bit off color--more a of slate blue shading--than before?

    I doubt the this is an actual Duke uniform for this year, as it just looks like a Nike catalog team builder template, based mostly off of the PK80 uniform. But you never know.

    It looks almost exactly like the PK80 uniform with some slight differences. As far as I can tell, the main differences are that the slit in the shorts moved to the side and it lacks the usual American flag/ACC crest on the left collar.

    I would like this better if the chevrons and Nike swoosh were white instead of black. Maybe it was just an errant post by Nike, selling a jersey from 2 seasons ago.

    Which is why it's called 24K gold...

    Ugh. Gaudy and unnecessary.
    Our school colors are blue and white, full stop. No gold, no black, no grey or putty or concrete or whatever that stuff is called.
    Just ugh.

    I'm definitely not a fan of these jersey reveals themselves. I get the slick social media videos look cool, but it's like they go out of their way to make it impossible to get a look at what the actual jersey itself looks like.

    I'm guessing we see these debuted tonight? If so, I'm cautiously optimistic that they'll look good in actual basketball use.
