Spur of the Moment Decision

September 20, 2012 1 Comment

 

Yesterday the San Antonio Spurs unveiled a new wrinkle (pun intended) into their on-court dress scheme. The Spurs have always worn jersey color schemes of black, white, grey, and silver. The team’s color scheme has often reflected their style of play on the court, simple yet boring, but classic and consistent. The Spurs have been one of the NBA’s best teams over the last 20 seasons accumulating numerous championships. In the 1990’s and early into the 2000’s the Spurs touted a simple black or white jersey with the name “Spurs” written on the chest and the player’s number in larger print just below. The “U” in the word Spurs was made to look like a cowboy boot spur.

In typical San Antonio Spurs fashion, when making alterations the team did not change in a seismic way. The new alternative jerseys are devoid of any words, making good use of space by having only the “U” Spur symbol just off center and the number of the player in the top right corner of the front of the jersey in much smaller font than the regular jersey. On the other hand, the color of the jersey has shifted somewhat. The team’s new alternative wear is done in silver, but luckily for NBA fans, does not boarder on metallic. The new innovation in these jerseys is that, according to Spurs team President Rick Pych, these are the first NBA jerseys to have no words on the front of the jerseys. The team introduced them, not with stars like Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, or Tim Duncan modeling them, but instead young rising stars Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard

Authentically Speaking Trivia Time: While the Spurs have never used any colors in their uniforms other than black, silver, white, and grey, the logo used by the team in the 1990's incorporated a few other colors. What were they? Answer to come tomorrow.

Wednesday’s answer:  The Padres first wore camouflage uniforms in 2000 and have since had 3 versions of the uniform with the most recent looking like this:

American Needle Fitted Hats

If you do not know your size, first determine where on your head you want to wear your hat. Usually it is worn about a half-inch to an inch above the eyebrows and/or just above the ears. Have a friend hold the tape measure (cloth, plastic, or download a printable version here) at the point where you want the hat to rest on your head.  Insert the tip of your little finger between the tape and your head.  Record the measurement and find your Fitted Hat size using the chart below.  This should provide you with a comfortable fit.

Apparel Sizing Tips:

Use these tips as a general guide when finding your measurements:

Chest/Bust: With your arms at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest, across shoulder blades and under arms.

Waist: To measure your natural waistline, wrap the tape so it intersects your navel. Keep tape flat, but comfortably loose.

Hips: Stand with your heels together and measure the fullest part of your hips. Make sure the measuring tape is level all the way around your body.

Inseam: Stand up straight, and start the tape measure high in your crotch. Straighten the tape down the inside of your leg to the bottom of your ankle.
