LOOK: These Amazing Concept Uniforms should be UK’s actual Uniforms

There are three guarantees in life; Death, Taxes, and Kentucky fans hating the current iteration of the basketball uniforms. Some of you may remember a post I had back in February about Kentucky needing to incorporate some sort of throwback uniform.

However, graphic designer @75toRupp (Owen) has the perfect vision for how Kentucky’s uniforms should look.


They’re clean, sharp, modern with a nice splash of vintage, and they even include -what seems to be a must for everything at UK nowadays- the checkerboard.

Here’s a look at some more designs Owen did back in July.

UK really needs to call this guy up for some more designs.

At the end of the day, the uniforms are a minuscule issue, but these uniforms would fly off the shelves next season if we saw our Cats take to the floor in them.

Pretty please Mitch, who wouldn’t love these?


Go Cats. @BrentW_KSR

    I’ve never been a fan of the school name in cursive. That’s a bad look and an Adidas move. UK should be better than that.

    Not sure about this design, but anything would be better than what we have now. As long as they are not to short or to tight I’m good with this look.

    I’m not a checkerboard hater – but I don’t particularly like them. However – THESE ARE AWESOME!

    Why do the top 2 have Jordan logos? I like them but I also think the spelled out Ky could be better.

    Good luck getting a concensus. Not gonna happen.

    Personally, I don’t like the cursive, and why Jordan?

    I could care less either way. The fact that certain folks get upset over jerseys boggles my mind.

    Not a fan of the cursive but would take it and it is time for a uniform switch. Don’t mind the black but only once per season. Blue and White.

    Too plain….a middle schooler could design that…get something that standsout ,not sure what, but something original and a little “wow” factor. I think recruits and players want someting eyecatching and different. Surely NIKE can offer that.IMO

    Those are really really bad. Cursive? Seriously? That’s awful.

      Don’t cave in Mitch. The current checkerboard uniforms are classy and sharp. The silent BBN majority loves the checkerboard uniforms. Remember the old saying: If it is not broke, don’t fix it!!

    Cursive is like Kansas’ classic unis and black looks like Duke. Try again.

    I’ve always wanted a small inconspicuous American Flag on our unis.

    Cursive will not work. Young folks will never be able to figure it out.
