  1. NFL 2018 changes

    That's beautiful. Instantly one of the best sets in the league when worn as color rush with white socks/gloves/cleats. Works perfectly with the new sleeve stripe layout, too. Problem is, the league will make them wear red/white socks, which will kind of ruin it. It'll be okay but look college-ish. While nice, they really didn't need it. It's like the Packers wearing white pants...it looks great here and there, but it's not them. So, as a Color Rush - I approve. As a standard away set? I'm sticking with the Gold pants.

    Regarding the Steelers, I can say this: living in Western Pennsylvania, fans would just be happy to go back to the Full Block numbers of the 70s/80s/90s. Will look almost exactly like Iowa, except if they truly wanted to make it a throwback, they could switch to Grey facemasks for that game, which they wore through '76. Would be subtle, but well-received by the fanbase. If the 49ers are adding a White pant, then let's hope they're bringing that matching throwback jersey with it. It's just a number font change, so it shouldn't be an issue. What shade of what color are the Dolphins changing? Seems like a huge expense and silly to do unless changing the entire brand of the team again. I am in the minority on this board, but I think their current update is perfect. I hate the throwbacks, hate them. I will be greatly disappointed if the new Jags helmet is glossy black. Satin or bust. Matte is still a good look (at least you'll agree if you were born after 1980).

    Aside from the Jaguars & Titans, are we expecting any other team uniform changes in 2018?
  4. Teal alternate needs to become the Home Primary, helmets just need to be completey Matte Black, and done. Perhaps they'll add a little detail to jazz up the helmet...maybe a different finish for the facemask...but not much needs to change outside of getting rid of the horribly executed paint job.
  5. And yes, the Jags look tremendous in this combo. I actually truly like their uniforms and don't think they need to be changed; just fix the helmet by making it matte or satin black.
  6. I sell teamwear, uniforms, footwear, equipment, headwear, etc. for a living for the largest sporting goods team dealer in the country; this is just a Stock, off-the-shelf, blank New Era cap that someone embroidered post-manufacturing. They're widely available from wholesale distributor Sanmar. I can tell from the cap style (non-trucker mesh back). Also, your costs are way high, so it's feasible someone created this design and had it embroidered and is now retailing it (illegally I might add - that embroidery is not 3D/Puff and doesn't look as tight as New Era embroidery from the factory).
  7. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    I think the most curious element of that graphic from the Lions' website that you're overlooking is the 2nd shade of Grey. Perhaps they will take a cue from Tennessee's Smokey Mountain Grey set, and mix Anthracite in with Silver & Honolulu Blue. That would give things some depth and no one else, unless you count the Buccaneers' new Pewter, is using it. Chrome, if anywhere, does make sense for this team...but I think that fad is dying.
  8. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    I don't think that would be a bad thing at all: Now, if they really wanted to push it, they could work in Anthracite + Steel Grey - with a brighter Honolulu Blue, it'd be pretty electric: Tennessee's Smoky Mountain unis are incredible.
  9. NFL 2017 changes?

    I didn't hate the Black, just the overall use of the colors in the logos and uniforms is what didn't work for me. Hopefully with this rebrand, they'll have a very clean, crisp, 2-color look. If I were guessing, since they're going to have all new uniforms, they'll likely be wearing the Vapor Untouchable template. I am interested in what Colorwerx said about more surprises to come. Anxious, actually. I hate that we have to wait until April 13th to see the uniform unveil!
  10. NFL 2017 changes?

    Got me. Fairly big miss by me. That, however, is a lighter shade of Grey, and an alternate. The Falcons could go darker and own it.

    At the risk of being banned for the sake of supporting Gray for Gray's Sake (say that 5 times) - I thought one of the best looks in football this year was Colorado's Dark Steel Gray. The helmet is stunning and the shade of Gray that Nike has in play here is what Oregon and Baylor have been using, as well as a a few others, in years past - not Pewter (Silver in Nike's world) and not Anthracite, but somewhere in between. It's the perfect shade. No one in the NFL currently features Gray as a major uniform component, with only the Pats (helmets, home pants) Raiders (helmets, home & away pants), Panthers (helmets, home & away pants), Lions (helmets, home & away pants - pending new unis), and Giants (away pants) having the color a part of their schemes (the Cowboys also have Grey helmets, of course...but those pants ain't gray). However, most would classify those teams as all using "Silver" rather than a true mid-tone Gray, with only the Buccaneers using a darker tone. The Falcons could distinguish themselves from these teams, as well as other Black-on-Color teams (Cardinals, Bengals, Steelers, Saints, Panthers) by featuring Gray. They could easily rotate a White away jersey with Gray or White pants, while also mixing in alternate Black or Red jerseys on top of Gray pants. Bringing Gray back into the Falcons color scheme, gone since the Reebok rebrand disaster, but in a modern way, while tweaking Colorado's look to keep the redesign simple and clean. Use Red as the poignant pop color on a tweaked logo, the Swoosh logos, and the number outlines, as well as some detailing with black on the sleeves, and they'd have a sleek new look to go with their sleek new stadium. The black & red logo would pop like crazy on that helmet. I always thought Army's 2013 Army-Navy game pants were tremendously effective, despite how simple they were. Add a small hint of red to that side panel and you've got a look. Here are some other instances where Baylor and Oklahoma State made the tone look really good:
  12. Wow....ashamedly, I'm a huge Chiefs fan, and I never noticed that!!! Still would love to find that Colts helmet logo. It is definitely different - the top tips are different, and it's now as obtuse. It looks like it may have been an "old" logo they've never changed. It definitely, definitely fits better on a helmet. If anyone has it, please post!
  13. Maybe this is common knowledge, but I realized that the horseshoe logo on the Colts' helmet does not match their standard team logo; it's less round, more vertical, and the top edges have rounded upward-pointing bottom corners, rather than corners that point downward and out. However, I've tried searching for this logo and can't find it anywhere; every logo I see is their standard team logo. Does anyone have their actual helmet logo that they can post?
  14. NFL Changes - 2016

    Nike wanted to phase it out last year from their product lines, but the demand was still too high. They are working to phase it out of most of this year's coming product - that could be permanent, could be temporary, but apparently they're a little bit over it. Most visible color to the human eye, but now that everyone is Lime Greening the ish out of everything, I think they're just annoyed, so of course, they want to steer the market again, and everyone will just follow. Things could always change, but this is what I was told by a Nike employee (corporate, not store) this past Fall, and from a corporate buyer in a company that would definitely know.

    I noticed this right away...and loved it. Obviously. Insider info that will make you all very happy: Volt is on the outs. Or at least taking a break for a year or two, for the most part.
