  1. This is good. I know Michael Irwin was apart of the design process for the new wordmark and secondary logo. I really enjoy his work. Big thing for me is the throwback number font, which looks great. The wordmark feels like a solid refresh. I don’t agree that the secondary logo is “forced”. I think it’s clever and will look good on fan apparel. Black swoosh is dumb but pretty harmless, for now.... Things to note: - Numbers on the back of the helmet will be in the new font - Grey mask stays, but cleats shown in promo pictures are white - No stripes on socks (somewhat disappointing) - font for NOB stays the same. Surprised they didn’t update that to reflect the wordmark. Overall, I’d give it an A. Most people won’t notice, which is the restraint you would expect from an organization like the Colts.
  2. Point taken. Ideally, everyone on the team should have matching spikes at the very least. Not the exact same shoe, but the colors should match. When I think of traditional football uniforms, grey facemasks and black cleats always work. More contemporary looks have white cleats with colored masks. But there’s always exceptions to every rule.
  3. Gotta disagree with you here. The “double-decker stripes” take up no more room then the Browns CR stripes do. The above look @upperV03 posted IS the Browns. That striping should also be used by the Packers and Saints.
  4. In a utopia I could see this. These days, however, players like to pick their own color ways for gloves, cleats and other equipment. Each players individual look is highly customizable and left up to personal preference. Sock length also falls into this category. Things of this nature must be kept in mind when designing a modern uniform.
  5. I think a single stripe on the pants would work wonders here, as opposed to the Adidas soccer shorts look. Great concept!
  6. Ok, I’ve settled down a little and have some thoughts. Yes, the gradient is hot garbage. Yes, the uniforms are gimmicky and are already outdated and look like a one-off set for Texas Tech. However, there are some good combos here. Home: Black/White/Black Black/white/red Throwback Black/Black/Red Black/Red/Black Red/Black/Red Away: White/Black/Red White/Red/Black White/White/Black White/White/Red The problem is, I don’t trust them to use the combos correctly and fully expect nothing but monochrome looks and leotards.
  7. I think the current set is extremely well designed, and was perfect for A&M as we moved into the SEC with a high-powered Sumlin offense led by Manziel and Evans in 2012. In general I think Aggies like the uniforms, but the combos went overboard and the play on the field went down after Johnny left. With Jimbo at the helm, we want a return to the classic, no-nonsense design. The bevels look fine on the numbers, but they look bad on the logo that inspires them. The glossy maroon helmets and white facemasks are superior to the satin lids and grey masks. I will say, I do like the shoulder and pants striping.
  8. Living in Houston, I can tell you that I know zero Oilers fans who would still root for the Titans over the Texans. There is no love for the Adams family here. You will find a ton of Cowboys or Saints fans, but very few Titans fans. However, as much as I love the Oilers colors, logos, uniforms and brand, I think it belongs with the Titans. If they want to wear it as a throwback, they should wear it against Houston. The Texans need to wear their red tops more and emphasize their current brand, which is quite strong on its own. And fire O’Brien.
  9. I expect A&M to adopt a version of their ‘98 throwbacks also full time. Mond, the AD, and the equipment staff have all responded to tweets which indicate this. I think we’ll see the shoulder stripes removed, the bevel taken off the number font, an enlarged “Texas A&M” across the front with white facemasks. Probably a pair of maroon pants to wear on the road as well.
  10. @TheAdmiral I just prefer white shoes to black for indoor games for whatever reason, and all their home games are indoor. I hear you on the blue pants, I would just like to see them once or twice a year on the road with white striped socks to mix it up a little. Biggest thing for me though is the Unitas font.
  11. In my perfect world, the colts would go to a double stripe on the helmet, blue mask, color rush number font, and occasional blue pants on the road. Striped socks always with white spikes. But I know that the grey mask and black shoes are their thing as well, so it probably won’t happen.
  12. Bucs Instagram account just posted a video of Godwin, Lavonte David and Devin White getting a sneak peek at the new uniforms. There are 3, and the players all seemed to like them. Coming in April....Godwin described them as “clean”
  13. @Ark still my favorite NFL uniform of all time. The logo, the helmet, the striping, the colors and the combos. Perfect.
  14. You put this much more eloquently than I would have, so thanks for that. Really enjoy the seeing the evolution gif of this. I would echo @8BW14 about maybe closing the mouth altogether. I think taking away the sharp lines on the mouth and shrinking the horns and slightly changing their angles to a more vertical approach like others have stated would help. Good work
  15. Good start. I think the mouth needs some work as well. Other people may be able to provide better input, but I think the abundance of sharp lines on the head portion contrasts a little too much with the smooth, rounded horns. This may have been completely unintentional, but the eye on option 1 almost looks like an “LA” to me. I prefer that one to option 2 personally. Keep it going!
  16. I’ve been going to Texans games and watching them on TV since the beginning and not once has the logo been “lost” to me on the navy lid. Far superior to the conceptual white helmet they revealed before the navy one. Now they just need to wear the Battle red uniforms as primaries and go back to red socks on the road. I also prefer the red helmet for Atlanta, and could go either way for the Bills. But I don’t think those logos get lost either.
  17. That Arkansas hat would make for a great Arizona state cap.
  18. Incredible concept and presentation. Every combo looks good. I would echo that their current font is probably better than this one. For the pants stripe, I would flip it from bottom heavy to top. I think the name and swoosh on the white tops should be red. Other than that, this set would be a tremendous upgrade that I think Falcons fans everywhere would embrace. Good work!
  19. Lakers over Celtics in 2010 was the first one that popped into my head as well. The last time in happened in each of the other major sports: MLB - A’s over the Giants in 1989 NFL- Packers over Steelers in 2011 NHL- Penguins over Sharks in 2016 (San Jose’s teal is more green to me than blue) NCAA Hoops- San Francisco over Iowa in 1956 College World Series- LSU over Texas in 2009. Aplogies for getting off topic - just was an interesting thought to me. That’s how you know College football season has ended.
  20. Fantastic championship matchup, with both teams looking their best. LSU in anything but the classic whites would have been criminal. Clemson’s big game orange britches always look great as well. When’s the last time a major championship matchup included 2 teams who do not use any shades of blue or red?
  21. Chiefs vs Bears was just about a visually perfect football matchup. Blue vs Red. Block numbers vs a nice round font. Jersey, pant and sock striping. It all contrasts so beautifully. I think the Bears have my favorite home look in the league, and the Chiefs have my favorite road look.
  22. Color vs color only works when their is substantial contrast. USC vs UCLA is beautiful. Arizona vs Arizona st was too dark imo. But I agree that when done well, it’s fun for rivalry games or neutral site/bowl match ups.
  23. Comedy at its finest. Add gold to the uniform to commemorate the 2017 championship instead.
  24. Is there a better looking matchup in college than LSU-Bama? It’s the same every year and always looks fantastic. Some of my other favorites: OU-Texas, Florida-Georgia, Ohio St-Michigan, USC-UCLA (color vs color), Army-Navy, Notre Dame-Michigan St (most underrated but not annual), Miami-FSU. But LSU-Bama takes the cake.
  25. Agreed that they should run with the helmet colors. I’m ok with the royal accents at home and the navy alternate though... It just looks like the Cowboys to me. It’s the black outlines on the striping and mismatched silvers that bothers me.
