Which frame/mat combo do you like best? Why?

Or give a suggestion what would be nicer or better! Thanks!

On the off chance you haven't decided yet, I'll throw my two cents in.

I'd go with the white frame with the pink (bottom left). The white frame lends itself to the design better, where a darker frame adds too much weight far outside of the main subject, distracting the eye. The line of pink prevents the print from feeling like it just blurs into white and provides definition around the edges of the print without being too heavy.

Beyond those two quick points, I just think it looks nice. :)

Thanks buddy! I'm actually still torn and had this mockup done with a blue core with the pink 2nd mat above. Thoughts? I'm also open to something completely different which looks nice..

A light frame doesn't seem to work. Maybe match it with the fitted part of the sleeve and then mess with mats that compliment/match the text/background/glove.

I agree about the lighter frame. I'd definitely go with some darker.

Thanks for the help guys! So, I now agree with the darker frame idea. What do y'all think about these options? Do you prefer the darker wood/black/brown frame or the lighter wood frame?
I'm still torn.

Top left works best for me. And it isn't even close.

Looking again, the topleft does seem to work. Anyway, take it in to a framer and mess around- jpeg mockups only get you so far...and not very close IMO.

Thanks man. What do you think of the darker wood frames I posted ^? I originally wanted the white frame, but they really started to grow on me. Now I'm back to square 1..

Thoughts on the darker, wooden frames above? It now matches the shirt cuff. But the white is very clean. Hmm haha

I'm biased towards the white frames / white mats / thin inner mats. It just let's the art speak for itself IMO

Maybe I'm the asshole here but I like the one you posted last best. Dark frame, dark mat under the white mat. I dig.
