Not sure if this has been said or not, but the biggest problem I see is that the helmet logo is not outlined in black, to tie it in with the facemask, like the 1990s were.  The lack of it cheapens the look IMO.

Still better than the Bucs, Browns, Titans, and Jags unis.

Yep. It's just another result of them forcing elements of the previous logo onto this design. The white on green only makes sense for the previous look, not this.

I think the exact opposite. The black outline on the logo would've cartoon-ified the helmet. Showing restrain and avoiding black on the logo was the smartest decision they made.

I'm not opposed to a new look in general, and i don't hate the new look they went with.. but fixing their shoulder stripes didn't have to be hard...

I think the Jags 2018 rebrand >>>>>> Jets 2019 rebrand.   This look simply isn’t my taste, feels like a uniform by committee, and voids any semblance of what little brand identity the Jets did have before.  Now it’s a Madden Create-a-Team.

I’m wondering what the other colors they considered instead of black.

 

Probably silver or slate gray.

I would have preferred they just fixed the problems with the (now) old uniforms, and I'm still perplexed that they wouldn't bring back the 80s wordmark for something like this.  But overall, I can more than live with these.  As I said in the other thread, the striping isn't traditional, but it is restrained to the parts of the uniforms where you'd expect to see stripes anyway.

Even the things I don't care for (the black number outlines, and that dumb football on the wordmark) aren't too terribly obtrusive.  They still look like the Jets to me.

My biggest problem with these (apologies if someone has said roughly the same thing already) is the clash between the retro-inspired logo on the helmet and the ultra-modern uniform style. I can't reconcile the two of them existing together.

I was really about to go off on incorporating black out of nowhere but realized they did have black trim in the Ken O'Brien/Blair Thomas 90s set so I have no grounds there.  

 

But going the Browns route with lettering stitched on the front is a mistake as this element is too far afield for this league, especially with so many sets unchanged going on decades.  

 

Someone brought it up earlier in the thread - a NCAA group of five worthy look.  Marshall Thundering Herd and North Texas Eagles should be flattered by the imitation.  

 

Positive wise the helmet is outstanding in every way.

Likes:

Return to a green helmet

The green itself is an upgrade; I really didn't like the pants in hunter green

I think I may actually prefer the white jersey, green pants combo

Dislikes:

New York on chest is bothersome; would prefer the "NY" if it was so necessary to force a NY element

I can live with helmet logo, but if "Jets" absolutely needed to be there, I would've liked a return or refresh of the concorde logo

I don't mind the infusion of black, but didn't think a black alternate was necessary.

There needed to be a white facemask.  This cannot be refuted.  I mean it can, but a white facemask on the upgraded green would pop.

 

Will they wear white cleats with the white and green sets?

 

I'm like 90-95% in agreement with this. I don't have any issue with the black facemask (though you're right that white would've popped more), or the black alt (though you're right that it isn't altogether necessary, and I think it's the weakest-looking of the three jerseys even if you don't look at it as BFBS). I would have loved to see the return of the Concorde, but the wings on the shoulder look cool. Wish they wrapped around for a contrast-color nameplate, though.

 

I have no strong opinion on the chest text. I actually like that the city name is spelled out somewhere in the uniform. I think having the triangle under the team name on the helmet would catch the  eye more than just having the shape of a football does, but the helmet itself is awesome, and the logo is decent.

 

Interestingly, I agree with you on the lighter shade of green being better for the pants. I think it was when they started wearing those dark green pants that I began to realize I missed their Kelly green look.

The best thing I can say about all this is that they picked a nice venue to have their event.  I don't like the shoulder stripe, the font, or the BFBS set and I really don't like the "New York" on the chest like they were Nassau Community College.  If they were going to go with a green helmet they might as well have used the 80's helmet. 

 

Otherwise I would have preferred they just fix the stripes and use the new shade of "Gotham Gang Green" on the most recent set.  

 

Thus, as I predicted long ago the Jets done Jetted.  It isn't great, it isn't horrid, it just...is.

This is probably going to be a controversial take, especially in today's world filled with PC loving libs, but cats shouldn't be allowed to buy sports jerseys. Even if they are the leader of the largest communist regime on earth.

The shade of green looks better (obviously), but I'm really eager to see them in sunlight on the field. The metallic helmets are nice, and the helmet logo is pretty tolerable. I really don't like those stripes... it doesn't feel like it meshes with the rest of the uniform. There's nothing wrong with the numbers outside of the black outlines, which I don't think are really needed.

 

But yeah, overall these are fine.

They were so close to making this a B+/A- set.

1. Put the '78-'97 logo on the helmet.

2. Remove "New York" from the front.

3. Ditch the black unis and all black trim on the others.
