2015 CFL Uniforms

Recommended Posts

I'm not a fan of the Argos' look in general. I think something like this would look nicer:

Why get rid of a nice, classic, timeless look just to switch to a 2000s-esque pipped and panelled mess?

Ottawa wore the signature jerseys the second time this season:

Though I think they should wear it in the playoffs they also wore it against Montreal this year and last:

They also wore it against Toronto last year but missed the opportunity this year to wear it when Toronto wore theirs

And then dreadfully debuted it last year vs Calgary...

This is one of the signatuer uniforms that should stay and I hope they wear it in the post season. the team it looks best against is Montreal but Ottawa in red vs Montreal is always good looking.

I didn't realize that plaid tapered pants stripe tries to continue halfway up the sides of the jerseys. The logo on the front doesn't occupy enough space either; that whole jersey looks barren of anything good-looking.

A logo on the shoulder would be good

but Ottawa should keep it.

Not going to lie, I like this Montreal set:

Some people I work with are on the Riders forum and they were saying the manager of the Rider Store in Regina posted on the forum (or someone who heard from the manager) that the teams will be unveiling the Adidas jerseys in the spring.

The signature jerseys will be no more as it was just a Reebok thing and the Bombers are expected to be going back to the royal blue, which I think was mentioned here.

Those would be okay if it weren't for the white paneling and the 2002 pants stripes (that have no tie-in to the jersey nor the helmet stripes).

They are missing the sleeve stripes, then that would be a great uniform.

I hope Adidas doesn't go College Football on the CFL jerseys. I would honestly be pissed off if they changed Hamilton and Toronto's uniforms.

Toronto, Hamilton and Edmonton's home don't need anything done to them

So, Ottawa never figured out how to make that plaid helmet work, huh?

The all-white set (storm trooper) the Riders wear is gone too. No more white helmets. Which, while unique in the CFL, never really fit the Riders. The Adidas take-over shouldn't require everyone to make a change, since Adidas and Reebok are practically the same company, so this must be the will of the team to have a uniform change.

I would just go with something simple. Don't go full classic, keep the current logo, but they don't need to have piping and mis-matched panelling with the pants if they can avoid it.

My buddy and I were just talking about that the other night. Seems so silly.

Sadly, looked like it would complete the look

Honestly, drop the big logo on the front for numbers and add that helmet and I think you have a cool (albeit a bit gimmicky) look

Saskatchewan has to go back to their throwbacks full time. They are way too good for them not too.

But see, while there's always money in the banana stand throwbacks, there's also money in dropping a new look every few years. You don't want to narrow those two revenue streams down to one, because there are enough people out there who will buy whatever you trot out as new, even if it positions the team's logo as a tramp stamp.

It's sad but you do have a point.

I wonder if any team will get a new logo?
