Truth be told, I fell in love with design as a 9-year-old, sitting at the kitchen table, drawing Buffalo Bills logos and uniforms in crayon. (I'm from western New York and the Bills were very good back then, so lay off.) To this day I am passionate about sports uniforms and have become a regular reader of Paul Lukas' "Uni Watch" over at espn.com. Every week, Paul takes you through the minutae of uniforms, everything from the latest in sock fashion (high whites!) to bemoaning the worst color in sports: purple.
Come to find out, Paul used to write the old Inconspicuous Consumption column for Core way before anyone knew what a blog was. Rock on brother.
