The 6ers are marketed as Sydney’s glamour club, and the choice of a bright pink as the primary colour does nothing to sway that perception. The 6ers uniforms focus solely on this glamour motif, with sparkles sublimated onto the shirt body. I switched this look out for a geometric pattern based on the tiling of Sydney Opera House’s iconic roof (also featured in the 6ers logo).
This pattern is repeated on the cap, shirt and pants and provides a very subtle nod to the region the 6ers represent without going overboard.
The colours have also been updated:
The cap is primarily grey with a contrasting pink front panel. The side panels feature an inverted version of the pattern featured on the shirt and pants.
A new name/number font in white with a gradient outline provides better contrast than the current black with a white outline. An arched name has a bit of a baseball vibe to it, which the BBL is clearly going for.
I prefer the look of contrasting pants for cricket uniforms and am surprised it took decades to really catch on. Certain colours just look odd when used for both a shirt and long pants. Either way, a bit of variation in combinations is a good thing.
The shirts feature a collar which is less common in Twenty20 cricket but is also a look I prefer since the V-neck kind of looks unfinished.
