The Philadelphia 76ers have unveiled their new city edition jersey for next season - and it's a thing of beauty.
The blue and red trimmings, jet black finish and funky font make for arguably one of the NBA's cleanest looks.
But while some fans praised the Sixers and American sportswear giants Nike for their work of art, others were quick to point out a genius detail within the innovative design.

As images of the jersey emerged on social media, eagle-eyed supporters noticed that the team had decided to subtly embed the letters "TTP" in the skylines.
Surely just a coincidence, right? Wrong.
If this was, in fact, a genuine part of the jersey's overall make-up then it's sheer genius.
To give some context, the letters TTP stands for "Trust The Process".
"Trust The Process" is the mantra adopted by Championship-starved 76ers fans during perhaps the darkest period of the organisation's history when they opted to tank games in a bid to rebuild the franchise with top draft picks the following seasons.
The calling card has become synonymous with the city of Philadelphia and it's inability to come anywhere remotely close to winning an NBA ring in recent years.
And even though the team has slightly improved with Australian star Ben Simmons and man mountain Joel Embiid at the helm, "Trust The Process" appears to have stuck.
So much so that the Sixers decided to pay homage to it in their latest jersey.
Simmons was the face of the campaign for the release, which perhaps puts to bed the idea that his head could potentially be on the chopping block
Reports emerged that the Sixers were considering trading the 24-year-old in a bid to secure the services of former league MVP James Harden from the Houston Rockets.
It would, in essence, be one of the biggest trades of the season - and one that would potentially divide the Philly faithful.
But seeing as though Simmons' face is plastered all over massive billboards and commercials to unveil the new city edition strip, you can only assume that the Aussie is their main man heading into next season.
