I'm really glad the Bills re-did their unforms with Reebok and right before Nike took over in 2012 because with the exception of Minnesota's there's no other makeover I have liked, and even with the Vikings they didn't make them proper white striped socks to go with their purple pants.

Tell me about it. The Vikings haven’t worn White socks since 1964.

Or they could have skipped the god awful purple pants completely.  The purple pants and black facemask are the two biggest problems with the Vikings uniforms imo.

If the leaked uniforms had traditional stripes, I’d almost guarantee 90% of the people on here who don’t like them, would love them. Seriously, the only non-traditional thing about these uniforms are the stripes. Everything else is perfect.

I like the stripes, just because they're the only jetlike thing about the set.

Black facemask sucks - either purple or white would've been better - but I don't mind the purple pants so much, as long as they're worn alongside the white jersey. It would be cool if they had striped socks though.

Would be such a huge waste of time...

 

It’s quite funny to see this in a thread containing six months of speculation about a couple outfits. 😜

Like so . . 

 

04-OCT-1964

 

Lambeau Field / Green Bay, Wisconsin

 

Vikings at Packers

 

Minnesota 24 - Green Bay 23

and the sock striping nearly matched the jersey striping, not bad for 1964 . . 

 

Even back then they knew that if you had pants of color you needed white socks, not the socks of the same color.

 

The current leotard look that so many teams have is just so awful!!

Actually it did match the sleeve exactly, it's just cut off by Tarkenton's ankle tape job.

No . . I did catch that part, that wasn't what I was referring to.

 

Take notice that the upper and lower striping on the socks appear to look thicker than the ones on the jersey.  That's what I had meant.

 

BTW . . I like those current purple pants, it's just that those purple socks ruin the look. The Bills have that same problem with the current socks worn with the royal blue pants. We should take notice of the white striped socks that were worn with the blue pants from 1975-1980 before switching to the red socks in 1981 which I wasn't a fan of.

Very close, but proportions were off slightly.. still very good for 1964

Is this a mock up? Another leak? 

My question here: Why the black outline on the numbers, but not the sleeve stripe or "New York" across the front?

I'm so excited for this. Not because I'm expecting any surprises or anything, but it's just exciting when a team unveils a new uniform set.

And you just can't hide it?

Like the Bills. Why the Black outline? Not on the Jets logo on the helmet either.

I actually really like this. It’s a solid update to the 90s set while still incorporating some elements of the traditional Jets look.
