The Best: for a team that has been all over the place in terms of their geographic identify, they’ve generally been steady on their sartorial identity. The red and white with the navy accents is a good look. The capital “A” with the halo is pretty inspired too. They’re not awful now, but they wear vests and solid jerseys and do all kinds of trendy things that I just don’t care for. I prefer the Nolan Ryan/Bobby Grich era with the dark hats with the red bills. Take off the elastic waist bands and slap some buttons on those babies, and they’d look pretty sharp. The 1966-71 look is close, but I prefer the upper-case “A.”
The Worst: This atrocity is up there with the worst things the Athletics and the Diamondbacks ever wore. Maybe it’s not as assaulting as those, but it’s just wrong on so many levels. Like each component part — the vest, the pinstripes, the colors, the logo — were each designed by a different department of some giant corporation. Which, in all fairness, they were.
Assessment: No, I’m not being too hard on those pinstriped things simply because Mo Vaughn looked awful in them. Even Jim Edmonds and Tim Salmon looked like butt in those things.
