Have we seen all orange or even orange over white since the Browns unveiled this new set?

They’ve gone orange over white and orange over brown, but (thankfully) not all-orange. The orange over white actually looks pretty good, all things considered.

The socks are accurate. What baffles me is that the Bills have been wearing this throwback for like a decade and still haven’t fixed the sleeve stripes. They should be an inverse of the sock; four blue bands trimmed in red, the center two bands slightly heavier than the outer two.

 

 

I think the the main issue with the Dolphins’ look is that the orange is too minimal at a glance, and the dark blue relegates it even further. Change all the dark blue to orange, and you have a building block, but the logo is still medium caliber. Truth be told, if this is the type of logo they want (more modern, minimal, and gestural), they should have used the old Dolphin Stadium logo and added a sun. That one was much more polished.

Well, considering most of the Browns’ “mix-n-match” combos are gross, I’d say this is the best decision they’ve made in years.

 

You don’t deserve sartorial freedom when you’re awful. Focus on the football.

 

why do you feel orange isnt used enough? personally, i think the color ratios are one of the few things i really like about the identity- this carries over into every piece of marketing/branding material too.

 

i think when you have 2 intense colors like aqua and orange, its best not to use them equally. with aqua being such a unique color, i think thats the one that has to be the primary. using orange as a trim color allows eveeything to not be too overpowering; but theres also the seperation from the 60s look.

No, no. I agree that the hierarchy needs to be primarily aqua and then orange, but the orange (really the trim in general) is too fine. It looks more like camera fuzz around the numbers and stripes than an intentional accent of color, especially at stadium viewing distances. The dark blue doesn’t help, either. It more powerfully defines the edge where the aqua and white meet because of its greater contrast with the white. Looking at these (and obviously this is closer than most seats), they may as well be an aqua and white team:

Now, compare that to some of the older looks, where the orange trim was a little heavier and maybe had little more presence in the stripe design. This looks like an aqua and orange team (emphasis still on the aqua). The design itself is too traditional for what they’re going for, but the color palette works better when the orange looks like more than an afterthought. That’s why my suggestion was to just make the dark blue orange, to give it that weight on the numbers and stripes.

I caught some quick highlights of Buffalo and Oakland, and I could have sworn the Bills have their regular road jersey numbers sewn on their throwbacks. Can anyone confirm?

Nope. No navy outline on these numbers, unlike the regular road jerseys that have the navy outline.

Maybe I should be posting this on the unpopular opinions thread but I love the way Washington's helmet looks without stripes. As far as I'm concerned, the stripes are needless clutter.

This is what I think too. It reminds me of USC and makes me think they could do something like USC (helmet) mixed with Minnesota (jersey down) for a redesign.

I would agree with that sentiment. It would make for a sharp, simple and clean look

Kind of OT and idk if it's been discussed here yet, but I saw a promo for Madden on TV and noticed that they accidentally used the Ravens' color rush socks with their normal aways. It is seriously much better than what they currently wear.

The content has been buried at this point, but I believe that I do remember ColorWerx revealing from official graphics back when they were unveiled in 2013 that the orange trim was actually thinner than the blue trim. Inconceivable.
