One of my biggest uniform pet peeves is the current trend in the NFL of teams wearing dark pants with the same color dark socks, or as it's usually known around here, the "leotard look"... That is just nasty on so many levels. By my count, last season there were 15 teams that subjected us to this horrific look at least once. (I'm not entirely sure about Miami... they supposedly have a pair of socks with a contrasting blue top to break up the leotard but I don't know for sure if they were worn.) Only the Bears, Patriots, Jets, and Chiefs still have the good taste and common sense to have a second pair of socks design specifically to contrast with their dark pants. Anyway, here's my proposed fix for 14 of those teams. I didn't include Cleveland because their new uniform, besides being ridiculous any number of ways, has yet to be worn as a leotard, and based on the sock options, doesn't need to be. In my mind, all these looks would be worn with a white jersey (except Baltimore, which could be worn with the purple)... in my world monochrome wouldn't happen in the NFL, only in small time High Schools, where it belongs. These are a mixture of white socks with stripes and contrasting color dark socks... whichever I felt worked best. I avoided making solid color socks in really light colors... gold, gray, or yellow... the Lions tried that back in the 90's and it really didn't work. Also, the Cardinals, Bengals, and Texans could be doing this right now... these sock options are already available to them.
