Surprise. The new Phoenix Suns uniforms are purple and orange.

The team unveiled three new, minimalist looks for the upcoming season at a fashion show Thursday night at Scottsdale Fashion Square.

Alex Len, Eric Bledsoe, P.J. Tucker, and Caron Butler modeled the team's new uniforms, while former players walked the runway in vintage unis from eras past.

On the outfit roster are white getups with an orangey gradient on the text for home games, purple away jerseys with orange numbers, and all-orange sleeved alternate jerseys. Each jersey features nine simple rays reminiscent of (albeit less cartoonish than) the Charles Barkley-era streaking sun. The look's not striking, but it's sleek.

Folks are in a tizzy over the throwback sleeved set. But if the Suns really wanna shake things up looks-wise, they should probably go extra-retro with teensy shorts like those modeled by a spectacular looking Eddie Johnson, who played for the Suns from 1987 through 1990.

Look. All we're saying is we would never miss a Suns game (regardless of how terrible or great they are) if the gents on the court wore slightly smaller duds. They've got the gams. Why not give the Suns Dancers a well-toned run for their money?

See the new look Suns when their preseason games start on Monday, October 7. Their first home game of the upcoming season is against the Portland Trail Blazers and takes place at US Airways on Wednesday, October 30. See the full schedule at www.nba.com/suns.

They look incomplete, like they're from a rough sketch instead of a completed design.

I think they're ugly, lacking creativity, and ugly.

Those orange ones look like something a parks and rec team would wear...

I'm sure that the new uniforms will make them a better team on the court.  Right?!?

I personally like the design of the short shorts Eddie Johnson is wearing.  I don't know about the length though, ha!
