Uniform collars

Green Bay, WI

#1 Dec 16, 2012
I've noticed recently many a team uniform has a design that makes it look like a collar similar to the collars of a button up shirt.

Say, the Vikings... the jersey is white, but around the neck is colored, horse-shoe shape, with the front 'open'. This will be purple in their case.
And the ends are sort of pointy, giving the illusion they are wearing a collared button-up shirt underneath their jersey and the collar is sticking out.

WTF were the uniform designers thinking?
It looks rather douchy.
The Steelers throwback uniforms for a day are better than this bizarre awful edging that stands out week in and week out.

Really, I don't know if they were designed to look like a button-up collar....? If they were. Truly WTF? Why? It doesn't make the players look any more "proper" or "respectable" like the socially constructed meaning of button-up shirts are supposed to.
