The photo of Tony was snapped in Anaheim Stadium in September 1983. He was wearing the road grey uniform.

Considering what the Sox were wearing before these came out in April 1982, I was very happy with them...and still am.

I think using them on Sunday home games is the right mix.

This. This, this, this. Only worse uniforms I've seen were those God-awful Astros uniforms from around the same time, if I remember correctly (might have been the 70s).

I get celebrating the team and all...but ugh, those uniforms offend my fashion sense to great extremes.

1983 the Sox were winning ugly and looking ugly. Although I have very fond memories of this time period, never a fan of those uniforms. I liked the ones they replaced it with in '87-'90 (except for the "e" hat).

I also like the current design, but would like a another color thrown in. After seeing the '72 reds last year, I'd like to go back to '59 and do a red/black combo (using the red cap at home and the black on the road). I also really like the St Pattys green pinstripes. A green/black combo would look fantastic. You could really tie that into the South Side Irish of Chicago.

That's what I thought. However, the gray in the photo looks very light, almost white.

I still think the blue/red cap would look better with the home white uniforms because then white "SOX" would match both the jersey and cap. I always thought the red/white/blue home caps looked too much like the Expos (who had nice uniforms), just not for the SOX.

If the SOX would ever change their current silver/black uniforms, I would like to see the Red/Black uniforms from that era make a comeback. I especially liked the numbers on the sleeves. The only change I would make to modernize the look would be to have the SOX script on the cap match the SOX script on the jerseys instead of the block-like SOX script on the caps.

I agree. They were a welocme change and only on Sundays is the right mix.

Not a huge fan. I'd rather see them wear actual white socks on Sundays.

They definitely looked better than I thought they would, but I am also not a huge fan. Certainly not enough to spend $250 on one (I did buy an authentic '72 last year). I hate the hat too. I might get an all navy hat with a red bill if it has the "batterman" logo on it.

I thought they looked great live... the red really popped, and the numbers on the pants is one of those long gone great touches. The hats are certainly the weak point, but something about them made me happy.

Especially the current throwback record: 1-0

All these uniform changes down through the years have made no sense since we had a great design with the Go-Go team of the 50s. When you have a classic design why change. Kudos to the Yankees, Dodgers, Cardinals, Tigers, Red Sox and Cubs for staying the course.

I thought they were hideous then, and nothing has happened to change my mind.

Hated them then and still do. Probably the uniform I saw the least in my 50+ years of watching the Sox due to being worn during their ontv fiasco. I guess there was a bright spot to that era.

In my childhood memory, these unis looks great. But now they just look ugly.

Also, did anybody click through Uni Watch to the blatant ripoff of the 83 Sox logo by streetwear clothing brand Lifted Research Group?



The style is called "South Sider".
