I love the shorts and will be 100% be buying them. Everything else I can live without. 

















I like how they're trying to incorporate our beautiful official pattern into the clothes, but I'm just not a fan of the hat designs.

not sure if I will go with yes. Uhhh Jordan brand/Nike created the pattern/logo to represent the University (brickwork, original Ferry Field gatework, canopy of trees,etc) its tied to UM Jumpman gear exclusively. Say what you will...makes it kind of official when you tie yourself to a financial apparel contract.

His question specifically referred to "independent of and preceding interaction with any apparel company,"

That pattern is exclusively a Nike creation. Nobody at the University of Michigan created it, or had anything to do with it. No official unit of the University outside of athletics will use that pattern.

Is there a reason for the line with the blue in the middle and yellow on the ends that's in a lot of these?

Looks weird on the shirts that say football. Like its a macron showing that it's a long O sound.

Yeah. Those shorts are hideous.

I was a vehement adidas basher, but, I've gotta say I'm super underwhelmed at Nike so far.

Those shorts are hideous and everything else posted looks generic but not classic, if that makes sense.

IMO that's representative of most of what they have done.

Things they have done well:
- Football uniforms. Look amazing.
- Bo hat - all they had to do here was not fuck up, but that's not a given when it comes to apparel design these days, so, success.
- Baskerball unis - look a lot like the fab five ones, which, awesome. They could've just trotted out the fab five ones and it would've been way better tho.
- some of the jumpan stuff is sweet, like that pullover with the sleeves hat change color.

Honestly tho, the new stuff posted above is pretty representative of most of what they've done. Some stuff is hideous like the shorts, most of it is generic-not-classic.

That combined with the fact that it's insanely expensive and, more importantly, Nike has made their clothes impossible for fat people to wear, means I haven't bought any of it.

I still sport my Nike gear from the last go-round and wish they'd make more that reflected that more classic aesthetic.

Sane here.  I am not a big gear guy but holy shit that bicolor tank top with that furious painting called a pair of shorts - if anyone wears those together please post a photo.

I like the shirts, everything else is awful.  Granted I'm old.  I was thinking some kids might like the shorts...if they were swim trunks.
