  1. In another day of weird Titans uniform quirks, a couple of the newer players for the Titans wore the outdated thinner numbers on their jerseys today. You can (kinda) see that here with Gostkowski and Jadeveon Clowney rocking the skinnier digits- I have to think that an equipment manager within the Titans organization is making these subtle mistakes now. On a side note though, Titans - Steelers is always one of my favorite matchups colorwise. The contrast of warm and cool is very pleasing.
  2. The only major thing holding back the Falcons set for me is the number font, and I don't even hate that as much as I used to. The red to black gradient just really feels like it belongs to Atlanta and it's a cool futuristic look. The Lions on the other hand need to torch this grey set. I mean their helmets are silver, not grey, and the color just has never worked as a primary for them. This game would have looked so much better with the Lions in white.
  3. These photos also point out another interesting quirk that I've picked up on with the Titans-- the spacing of the numbers is not consistent whatsoever. Look at how far apart that the 1's are in the top image vs. how closely they sit in the bottom image. I don't know if it's an equipment manager eroor or manufacturer error but it's really strange.
  4. Overall, it looks better on the players than it did as a retail replica, the chevron is a cool feature for Toronto to embrace. It just feels a bit underwhelming, like it's just missing one little thing to help push it over the top. Maybe it's the basic red-black color balance, maybe it's the simplicity of the shorts design. I'm not sure. On the kind of interesting side of things, the black alternates seem to take the jagged pinstripes from the classic uniforms and turn them into a sort of side panel. That's sort of an uninspired use for that element IMO.
  5. I'm glad that I'm not alone here lol, I still think that they look really nice. Intensifying the the color of the bolts to better match the facemask would be about the only thing I would change about them.
  6. I still love the chevron, but the coloring and lack of trim is a big miss. I think the numbers or wordmark should have been white, the current mix of red and black feels weirdly unbalanced.
  7. Now just imagine if the Jags took this mock-up and simply added gold accents around the arm trim and numbers. It would liven things up so much more and elevate their set to being really solid instead of needlessly basic. This alone is still a really great first step though, the lack of teal on the away set is gross.
  8. These are a great tribute as pretty much all of these military academy one-offs are, but shouldn't the silver and red be flipped on the helmet? When reversed, the angle would even sort of mimic the red tails of the planes.
  9. Those orange pants are the best thing that has happened to the Browns' unis in a long time, way superior to the white pants IMO. I really want to see them worn with the away jerseys now.
  10. I hate grey facemasks in most any cases and actually really dig this look. The accessories better help the facemask look like it actually belongs in the set and the cool grey color is a nice compliment to Buffalo's color scheme.
  11. This is a cool start, I admire your willingness to try new ideas. The Ravens are my favorite so far. One small criticism I have for your more recent teams is that the Broncos' mane striping is awfully-similar to the Titans' flame striping. I don't think that the color schemes would allow anybody to confuse the two, but something to consider I guess.
  12. I like both the red and white helmet for Buffalo for different reasons. The red helmet is quintessential Bills, there's something undeniably classic and unique about it that's really appealing. On the other hand, the logo pops much better off the white shells since you can better distinguish the motion stripe.
  13. I really like the horn pattern on the numbers in theory, but I really dislike the choice to use that fruit roll-up material for them. The bone uniforms as a whole are just misguided. I like the striping but white on bone provides no contrast and there's too little blue throughout the jersey and pants.
  14. I really like the simplicity for them actually, I think it suits them. The number font is a very subtle improvement too by the looks of it. Only point of potential improvement is replacing the redundant sleeve logo with the Mountaineer. (EDIT: This is in reference to the new App State look)
  15. Yeah...unfortunately the mods may need to be on their toes for the next few months as more of these tributes are released and worn. Say it looks bad if you feel so, but this really isn't the right forum to delve into it further than that.
  16. I've always liked their identity and the colors in particular. I guess that the weakest element of it has always been the name, but I don't see a need for a change. Really though, please don't go Houston FC, Houston SC, Houston United, etc
  17. I could envision some very 90's-inspired vintage looks for this based on the name and distortion of the font. Maybe channeling a bit of the wackiness of that era. Still, the name feels like a missed opportunity.
  18. That's a neat story and a nice subtle patch. That striping on his uniform could be adapted to today for a potentially cool alternate.
  19. Overall, they're a little bit better than the last set, but probably a bit too much white instead of purple. I can't decide if they should have updated the wordmarks to look a little less edgy in order to match the pinstripes. They might clash as they exist now, but I'll have to see it more to make up my mind.
  20. https://hornetsuniforms.com/ Scroll to the bottom of the page and there's a countdown for ~3 hours from this post. "More to Come" It must be for city uniforms?
  21. That video really shows how much the trend of an undershirt hanging out of the jersey has caught on, practically every player in a bone uniform had some blue poking out around the waist. I'm never a fan of it, but it's funny in this case that it's practically the only trace of blue near the pants.
  22. I really don't think it's a test ad or anything like that, I think it's just another feature of streetwear that they wanted to incorporate on the jersey. That's supported by some other trendy elements of the new brand (extended fonts, gradients, etc.) being featured so heavily. The contrast zig-zag stitching on the tag in particular is something that you see with a lot of clothing brands. I think that @oldschoolvikings did a really good write up on it already, although I cant remember where.
  23. In a vacuum where Red Bull isn't an energy drink brand, this would be a slick look. The helmet in particular would be awesome.
  24. The helmets are fantastic. I've started to notice that the "break" in the new horn is all but unnoticeable when a player is in motion or even seen from a distance, which isn't so crazy I guess, but I feel it may help lessen the blow for many who didn't like the update. With the jerseys, my thoughts haven't changed too much. The blue set works and the bone set isn't my favorite. The contrast of white with blue and yellow is so much stronger than what this warm grey color gives us. I just wish we could see what a true white away uniform would look like in this set.
  25. Nah, I've heard it called ATL my entire life, it's a more than acceptable alternative for "Atlanta". It's not like it says "The A" or "Hotlanta"
