Anyone seen the new sideline hats? Those are still full price everywhere but can't really stick around with the black outline. I hope they keep the grey crowns and blue brims...

I dont think thats the new sideline cap. That cap is a lids.com exclusive, doesn't say  anything about new for this year or sideline cap. The only hats i've seen released are the draft hats. 

Could explain the black outline. Although the same cap, with the new Honolulu blue and blue outline would be pretty nice. 

 

Or better yet, without the blue outline.  Put the primary logo on the cap, not the helmet logo.

The new hats do have the logo sans black.  Looks like double blue for the light colors and silver for the blue merchandise:

I must have the unpopular opinion - I have a couple hats (not those above) with the chrome logos.  I like them.

I kinda like the look.  But I don't think I would wear one.  Maybe I can't pull it off.

It is not the new one, I own it since a while. It has been the sideline hat since New Era took over but the weird thing is the fact that it's still full price everywhere. That's why I asked if anyone had seen next year's version.

Probably will come out in June/July.  Athlon's NFL preview magazine usually had pictures of them (though maybe not last year) and that is published in early June.

Some views of the helmet and new font on practice jerseys...

Are they sewing the numbers on their practice jerseys?

Does the helmet logo look slightly smaller?

They kind of look like a high school team who's using the Lions logo. I think it's the striping that's throwing me off. It doesn't really feel like the actual Lions yet.

The white outline on the logo, where white ISN'T used on the helmet stripes, really grinds my gears.

I'm with you. I really don't get why they didn't insert white in between the stripes. 

 

Nike is always doing things like that. Either their new uniforms are unbelievably terrible (Bucs, Browns, Jags) or they're pretty good and on the road to perfect, but with one or two inexplicable decisions that makes you go "ooo almost had it" (Vikings, Lions, Dolphins). Since taking over for the NFL they haven't unrolled a new look that I'd give an A. A few F's, D's, and then A-'s and B+'s.

I like the font, too, which I'm kind of surprised by.  I usual despise italicized fonts, on most sports uniforms, but especially in football.  I don't know why this one works for me.

The two different grays on the numbers  of the blue jersey are tricking my eyes into thinking the lighter gray is actually white, and the darker gray is the normal color.  

 

And I like the font too.

Don't think so. The only true profile is of Laken Tomlinson, who's a massive, big-headed human. The second image has a near-profile, but that player is wearing one of the new, cartoonishly large helmets.

Me too... that's been happening to me since I first saw this uniform.  If I hadn't been told the numbers were silver trimmed in dark gray, there's no way I wouldn't just assume they're white trimmed in silver.

The Lions have been like a high school team using the Lions logo for years.

I really, really dig this new helmet and I'm actually glad they left out the white in the stripes. It's already good northwestern stripe on its own.
