Not a fan of the WCF. George Halas deserves that kind of memorial. Willam Clay Ford? Not as much. 

 

Other than that, these are fine.

Definitely could've done without the stupid WCF on the left arm. I thought we were done with unnecessary permanent memorial patches after the Browns got rid of the ridiculous AL patch

It is is very classy, however it could be a 1 year deal, like the Mr. C on the Buccaneers sleeves in 1994.

Aside from the sleeve "flair," my only gripe is that they kept white in the helmet logo and home numbers and dropped it everywhere else.


I'm also wondering if the blue pants will be the main road set or an alternate.

 

Overall, could've been much, much worse.

Actually, I LOVE the WCF on the sleeves. He was obviously a huge part of the Lions, and the way the incorporated the look of the old logo is great. After seeing these closer, I like em. not a fan of the blue pants AT ALL, and I kinda wish there was more white in the striping patterns, but overall? Not too shabby.

WCF on a jersey is dumb. There's lots of people in sports who have died, lets put all of them on jerseys. 

Owner's families have done this for a while now so not surprising to see Detroit doing this as well. Cleveland did the same until the Lerner family sold the team.

I like them overall, but they aren't great by any means. Obviously I could do without the word mark and the initials on the sleeves. I like the striping pattern and the number font is okay I guess. 

 

I would have liked to see them go with a single color helmet logo with no extra keyline and make the logo 15-20% bigger. I think it would fit the look better. I'm not really a fan of the blue pants, but I guess they'll look alright with the white jersey Color rush sucks, but that's inevitable.

 

Also, is there a sheen to the silver pants or is that just some photoshop/camera trick?

I'm a fan, take the wordmarks from the sleeve and they have a perfect look, they are definitely in the top 10 right now

These uniforms are absolutely, totally fine. The Lions mark inside the stripes looks a lot better than I feared it would. The WCF is mostly fine, but I don't like that it goes outside of the bounds of the stripe. Though I do kind of like how clean the front of the jersey is unlike college teams who have a team logo, conference patch, and manufacturer mark all together. I also wish they had separate socks to wear with the blue pants. Having the stripes on the side helps a bit with the whole leggings issue, but not having blue on blue there would have been ideal.

Can't tell the number font. Is it italic block?

This also makes me think the whole league will be getting the new template now, atleast the ones that choose to anyways.

I think this is a downgrade. The previous uniforms were perfect. 

 

Perfect is a bit of stretch, don't you think? I would have thought the fact that their old helmet stripe was hilariously thin when compared to pants (that was the primary reason why I didn't like the last set) stripe stopped any attempt to declare those uniforms to be perfect. And the black facemask was hideous too.

Well, overall I'd say it's an obvious improvement on the last set, but not a huge one. Removing the black needed doing.

 

The sleeve wordmark is dumb, but not as noticeable as I'd feared. I think I'm mostly going to be bothered by the fact that the "LIONS" and the "WCF" are given different treatments.  Make them both the same, or better, leave them off.

 

 

And as always, same color pants/socks looks like trash.

They have gray striped pants, gray plain pants and then darker gray plain pants. Seems a bit much.
