No, of course it doesn't matter what we think


No, of course it doesn't matter what we think
about the five looks sported by the Cavs this season. But it does matter what you think - readers, send your opinions about the best and worst new looks to PDQ@plaind.com We'll not only run a sampling of your thoughts next week, we'll pass them along to the team.

- Kim Crow, Plain Dealer Style Editor, and John Campanelli, Plain Dealer Reporter

The historic take: This is an updated version of the team's first uniforms, which were born in 1970. The Cavaliers wore these gold unis at home. The script and feathered C were abandoned in 1974.

Style editor's take: While overbold, the striking color combination is impactful in its simplicity. The feather quill in the Cavs' logo is a graceful historical reference to what a Cavalier actually is, dating back to when stylish men wore knee-high boots and curly wigs.

The historic take: A different take of the road uniforms worn by the team in the early 1970s. Back then, away from the home court at the Cleveland Arena, the team wore wine-red shirts and shorts.

Style editor's take: Uniform design by Fisher-Price. This unsophisticated combination of these childlike colors would look more at home on the clearance rack of a Gymboree store than on the backs of the biggest, baddest Basketball players in the land.

The historic take: The Cavaliers brought back the wine and gold - a metallic version of it, at least - in April 2003, a month before they won the NBA draft lottery and the rights to draft LeBron James. They wear a white version for home games.

Style editor's take: Perhaps the most compelling looks, the color combination reflects the team's history most elegantly. Both the home and away jerseys are distinctively stylish without being over the top - classy and classic.

The historic take: In 2005, the Cavs introduced a blue "accent" version of their current uniforms. The multiple styles of uniforms sometimes create logistical problems. In December, the Washington Wizards came to town with their blue jerseys on a night when the Cavs were supposed to wear theirs. A staffer for the Wizards arrived on a commercial flight to deliver white jerseys in time for tipoff.

Style editor's take: All the fuss above just so the Cavs could wear these ugly things? The color-bar trim looks like a test your eye doctor might administer, and that particular shade of navy blue is flat and lacking in magnetism - the exact opposite of our glorious team.
