2019 CFL Uniforms

Recommended Posts

Overall I wonder why the templates are the same//very similar in some cases.

With 9 teams they should have 9 distinct templates.

 

But overall, I like the new unit, mostly not too different, but we'll see with the pants

BC's orange on orange was a bit much with black helmets-I would prefer black pants.

 

As to why we should care about the pants--well I watch the games--so I like a well done uniform on each team.

 

Hopefully no black pants for the Stamps this year--glad that they are just going with the red helmets.

 

So overall--so far, so good, except I agree with many about the Argos--they look boring--especially the whites.

Well the red uniform cannot work all that well without the black pants, sure the white is somewhat salvageable but black contrasts better. Red just looks bad.

It's been this way for a long time now going back to when Reebok was the supplier.  This is the way it's been trending for a while for other sports as it is definitely cheaper for the manufacturers to just use the same templates for multiple teams.  See NHL Reebok edge or Nike's international jerseys. 

 

They should have 9 distinct looks, but unfortunately this is how it is.  The only thing we can hope for is that at least they look good.

There should be no black pants, period. 

 

White home pants and red away pants. Time for the Stamps to be a red team once again.

Stamps pants are unfortunately the same, wordmark and all. I can't find any pictures showing it, but the pants have the New Era patch in the videos so it's not old stock.

Totally agree.  Could easily just switch to white pants at home with the current sent.

 

 However, if I had my way regarding how they looked, the Stampeders would need only need white pants.  A present day version of this stepping on the field:

I truly loved the Stamps' silver pants and secondary accents. Red and silver is a look the Stamps can own like the NFL Eagles can own Kelly green and silver.

 

Unless a repeated colour scheme has to coincide with the logo, if a team has an opportunity to have a colour scheme that's simple and that they can own, they need to use that colour scheme.

Shades of the AAF there. Does the on-field jersey have those BC logos on the shoulders?

Yes. It really looks like they just took last year's adidas shirts and slapped New Era logos on them.

Argos in white pants with a single light blue stripe here. I don't hate it.

The Argos are a sleeve logo away from having really good uniforms. The minimalism kinda works and the color balance feels right.

 

Montreal also looks good.

I don’t hate it either but navy blue stripes on either side of the light blue stripe would look more complete to me, a la the old Giants pants.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but looks like the Argos moved the large helmet logos over from their old white helmets to the blues.

This reminds me of the NFL's Pro Bowl uniforms. These also have blank sleeves.

I agree with Jezus_Ghoti, I don't hate it, but I'm not crazy about it. Those sleeves need something.

Wilder Jr.'s exposed shoulder pad looks like a stripe and completes the look.

And then somebody will complain that the pant stripes don't match the helmet stripe.  I rather they add stripes or a stripe to the jersey itself.

The helmet change to larger logo and addition of Cambridge blue stripe occurred in 2017.  You are right remembering that the white helmet did have a larger logo than the blue one.  That was last like that in 2016.
