New York Jets unveil new uniforms

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

 Because idiots like chairman meow buy them.

 

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.

The old uniforms were one of my favorites... in theory. But as Sodboy pointed out, they just continued to get more distorted over the years. So a new look is welcome. Maybe it's because I expected the worst, but I think these are okay.

 

The Good:

- The new shade of green is great. Not too bright or too dark, and it's nicely saturated.

- The number font is a nice take on traditional block.

- I like the shoulder/sleeve stripes. They're modern without being ridiculous.

- The candy green helmet color is really nice.

 

The Meh:

- The chest wordmark is unnecessary, but inoffensive.

- Ditto for the black number outline and facemask

 

The Bad:

- The black uniforms are unnecessary, and will be worn way too often.

 

The Confounding:

- The pants stripe isn't awful, but it would make so much more sense, and look better if it came up from the knee. The shoulder/sleeve stripes, as well as other branding, establish that the pointed end of the speed triangle is the front. That means the pants stripe is flying into the ground. Plus the uniform would flow better if all the points faced inwards towards the same focal point.

- The logo is completely incongruous to the rest of the set. An update of the 78-97 logo would have worked perfectly with the speed triangle motif.

Going through Jamal's post. Seems the black jerseys are the most popular. 

 

Only if you mistake social media posts for an actual representative slice of reality.

I actually kinda like the new black uniform, but it’s a shame elements from that set can’t be used with the other uniforms except maybe the socks.

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

 

My list of "still better than" would be Bucs, Browns, Titans, Falcons, Cardinals, Seahawks, Bengals, and Chargers.

New helmet color is dope. Everything else is kind of generic.
