  1. I may be in the minority here, but intentionally matching stripes to numbers seems ridiculous to me.. if that were an important design convention, several classic looks might not exist.. another issue here is that the numbers on that particular set are flawed in their own right, as colored jerseys shouldn't feature colored numbers.. so matching pants stripes to flawed/bad numbers is doubly flawed.. the Texans normal set is borderline perfection for a number of reasons, but in the case of their color rush set, you get flawed numbers, pants that have striping to match the flawed numbers and also clash with the shoulder stripes, making them triple-flawed in a sense.. add in the monochrome issue, and well - you get the idea.. Their standard all navy set would've been vastly Superior to their navy color rush set in every way as a color rush uniform..
  2. I think it's a bit unfair to say the league decided to insult colorblind fans.. it really was a bad combination of a number of factors.. with oversight being a big one.. But the league likely also didn't consider the extremely similar designs of the two uniforms - both had white helmets, white numerals on their colored jerseys, 2 white stripes on their pants, and one team had 2 white shoulder stripes, while the other had 2 white sleeve stripes.. add in the fact that one team was wearing an unofficial team color (obviously to boost merch sales) that made the issue significantly worse (likely wouldn't have been an issue with the Jets' standard green jersey, or even the color rush style in their standard dark green color).. it really was the perfect storm of unfortunate circumstances
  3. Why are all the Photobucket images showing up blurry?
  4. Make those stripes a bit narrower and slide that logo into the proper place, and you've got the makings for a nice modern Bucs look
  5. I wasn't commenting on the existence (or lack thereof) of shiny pants fabric.. I was simply stating that I don't recall any major manufacturer specifically commenting on the impossibility of creating shiny high-performance pants
  6. I don't know for sure that they've ever officially claimed that.. I may be wrong, but I think it's just a trend
  7. To be fair, only purple is listed as an official color (pms 268) on their athletic website's licensing page..
  8. I'm a fan of the orange, but maybe it would be best served as an alt? I'd be interested to see the initial set you did, but with the sock striping to match the sleeve/cuff somehow.. maybe lower the overall striping pattern a bit and run the bottom black stripe down to meet the white? Or perhaps use the bottom half white section as the center white stripe, so directly above it would be the orange and black?.. just spitballing ideas
  9. Definitely getting better.. like others have said, try using pen and paper.. get a more refined image before going digital with it, particularly if you're stuck in the world of paint.. if you hit a home run with the logo on paper, we can help you get it into the computer.. but make it EXACTLY what you're trying to make it before trying to bend a program to your idea - as it normally works the other way, with your idea bending to the limitations of the program (or your limitations with the program)
  10. And my stance is that logos, big AND small, aren't really obstructed at all by vents, and aren't obstructed by straps any more than they've always been.. My opinion regarding the Bucs helmet logo has nothing to do with the vents or straps, but if vents and straps are an issue, a bigger logo certainly isn't the solution
  11. Then making the decal bigger and more prone to vent/strap interference is the wrong direction to move.. Also worth mentioning that the vents really don't affect side logo decals much at all.. certainly far less than people here like to suggest.. and the straps often have alternative buckle location options, or at least alternative methods that can give you more wiggle room with the decal..
  12. I also think it looks bad, but mainly because it overpowers the helmet color and from many angles, you can see both logos, which gives an odd Rams-esque feel, like the tips of the sword are horn-like or something.. also, the brighter red is a touch too much on the pewter imo, but that might be rolled into my first point a bit..
  13. If I had a pair of the newest pants from each of the three main apparel providers and an accurate enough scale, I'd get you an exact answer.. however, I unfortunately do not.. so all I have to go on is the material makeup each company uses..
