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

Looks like they tried to copy Motor City.

So do they socks not have white bottoms? I'll be really disappointed if that's the case. Solid socks look very amateur.

According to one of the Lions' beat writers, the blue pants are a road option, not part of the default road set.


What I suspected, but still good to know that won't be an 8-times-a-year look for them.

My thoughts as a Lions fan:

 

Throwbacks: Awesome. I wish they were our main unis.

 

Home and away: I like it, except for the sleeves. Wish the facemask were blue, but it's no big deal. Glad the black is gone. Love the blue pants for their road set. Overall, it's an improvement over their previous set.

 

Color rush: Complete and utter trash. I hope they only wear these once a season. It's the only uniform in this set that I don't like.

The uniforms are quite beautiful, except for that unnecessary LIONS script inside of the arm stripes. Remove the wordmark and they'd be even better. The complete removal of black was the right move. The grey facemask & the duotone striping were very good choices.

 

At least they learned from the Browns what not to do, when putting together the pieces of a new uniform design.

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.

The home numbers are silver, trimmed in anthracite (dark steel grey).

I thought they were white as well.

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

Better than adding white pants IMO, but I agree it does seem a bit much. They should've just made the Color Rush jersey the lighter gray color so they could be used with the regular gray pants with the blue stripes. But again I'd much rather them have the three sets of gray pants than introducing white pants, so I'm fine with it.

I love these uniforms. Although I could've done without the initials on the sleeve and I'm not a fan of the number font. But I will be getting a color rush when they come out.

As perfect as a 25 point lead in the superbowl.

So that Reddit post I linked was wrong. Sorry everybody. Sincerely. 

Let that be a lesson to you. Reddit isn't to be trusted.

Especially when it's the same poster who was proven miserably wrong with his Color Rush info.

I know. I just posted it because I found it interesting.

I looked through the gallery on their site and to my eyes the numbers looked much lighter than the sleeve stripes, so I assumed white. Good catch.

This page gives a good recap. I like these more than the last set but they're not as good as they could have been. The removal of black is great and I think they nailed the colors.

 

Number font is fine but also not great. Call it meh.

 

If you have to have a gray Color Rush, blue numbers would make a world of difference. Right now, that entirely gray uniform is bland because it's all gray and white with tiny doses of blue. Liven it up a bit.

 

White trim would be appreciated, possibly between the blue and silver stripes.

 

I could live with the Lions wordmark, but the way the WCF is treated differently really bugs me. The fact it overlaps the stripes looks cheap and almost like a one year tribute thing, rather than a perma-memorial.

 

Solid blue socks will be cool, but they need to avoid the blue/blue look for pants and socks together.

 

I grade it out as B-. Decent, but could have been much better. Still nicer to look at than the black.

Not so fast.... According to the article on their site, blue pants are part of the default road set.

Looks like they copy and pasted the exact NOB font, which is interesting given that it's a pretty unique font for that application.
