    Best and worst (IMHO)

    My favorite is the current(?) home sleeveless vest with the black long sleeves underneath. Haven't seen them wear it yet this year, anybody know if they retired it?

    My least favorite, modeled here by the immortal Darryl Boston, the mid-eighties "FedEx" uni.

    And finally, for those late-night road games on the west coast, the one-piece jammies.

    Since red's my favorite color (no lie!) I would go with the homes and roads of '71-'75. When Veeck bought the team again, he introduced well...you know. My heart sank...

    I also love the classic 1959 look...

    To Be Determined

    The best White Sox uniform has yet to be worn. You can disqualify anything made of flannel. A fabric not suited for athletics. Even a guy with a decent build was swimming in excess fabric. Plus, it was just too hot. Stop romanticizing flannel uniforms. Enough. Like I've said before, button-down shirts have no business worn by an active participant in a sporting competition. No other sport has their participants wear button-down shirts for a reason. They're not athletic wear. Baseball should be played by players wearing v-neck pullovers. It was done in the past and should be done again. Leather belts also have no business on the field of play. Unless players are going to wearing chinos or jeans, leave them off the field. Wear the elastic waistband pants. They work in basketball shorts, they have and will work again for baseball pants. For the best White Sox jersey, I would combine the look of the '89 White Sox jersey with the early 80s Angels jersey. Blue and red are a great combo. I discount the current look because of the button-down jersey and the belted pants and also if it looks the same in B&W as it does in color, how good can it be? Combine these two...

    The 1959 uniform tied in with the current one would be good.

    i've always thought these were pretty cool. Minus the shorts. If they tweaked these uniforms they would have been appreciated more I think.

    Enough with button-down jerseys. They're not athletic wear.

    I played baseball in those pull over uniforms and they were the most uncomfortable uniforms you could play in. You can't compare football, basketball and hockey uniforms to baseball. If those sports used buttons then they would be insane. Fortunantly baseball can get away with using button uniforms and I would have to think if you asked most ball players what they prefer they would over whelmingly say buttoned jerseys.

    The 1980's were probably the worst era in the history of baseball for uniforms. I don't think theres any question it was the worst era of uniforms.

    I disagree. Athletes don't wear buttons. The White Sox may have looked bad in the '80s but not every team did. Tradition is holding baseball back. No question about. The last button-free MLB jersey was worn in 1992. The demographics have changed dramatically, perhaps not by coincidence.

    I think the last one was the 1993 Reds.

    It was the 1992 Reds. Sweet Lou's last year managing Cincy. When Perez took over they switched to button-downs. If pullovers and elastic waistbands with stripes can work for these guys, they can and will work for baseball.

    I love the 1983 style jerseys. Perhaps it's because that was when I went to my first ever baseball game. But I just love that style.

    I have had the pleasure of watching games at: Comiskey Park, Comiskey Park II, Wrigley Field, Jacobs Field, Municipal Stadium, Three Rivers Stadium, Miller Park, Yankee Stadium (The one and only), and Fenway Park.

    Worst, 1983. Best, 1959-mid to late 60's. 1981 Black/White Jerseys Great.
