But some like the falcons just aren’t distinct to me and look like High School jerseys not to mention the awful old logo 

 

They just came out with a gradient jersey and you're calling the throwbacks high school looking ones? What am I missing here?

College and High School football is home to some of the ugliest alternate uniforms in sports. They're always stupid gimmicks clearly trying to appeal to 8th graders who wear knee high neon green socks and Phiten sports necklaces.

 

My high schools alternate is military digital camo and they aren't even a military school. They are absolutely horrendous. Stuff like that doesn't belong in professional sports.

seriously most HS don’t even make their own logos and just reuse pro teams logos

What high school is that?

 

Do you want to know the brand of his jock strap? The name of his father?

Alright, we're done with this veer off topic. Focus on the Browns' upcoming unveiling, please, not blanket assertions.

Is this...an anti-Clevejack?

thanks for answering my question but back to the Browns as long as they make it like their previous set i’m OK with it. Browns are a no nonsense old school team and so their classic look fits them even if i think their current one are fine

The Browns traditional set has a lot going for it. 
 

The Brown and Orange are separated by white on the brown jersey and well blocked on the white jersey. 
 

This prevents brown and orange, two similar shades, from becoming muddled like they do in the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s versions. 
 

It’s one reason I actually like the solid white stripe on the helmet slightly better. 
 

The single color numbers have a similar effect. A lack of ornamentation doesn’t muddle the colors. I actually thought the slight drop shadow wasn’t a terrible idea as it gave just a hint of extra detail without crowding. Of course the current set botched that by making the numbers orange, adding the extra fabric base, the wonky font, and the contrast stitching but theoretically it’s a decent idea.

Yes. If you’re mixing paint from primary colors you need red and yellow to make orange. Red, yellow, and blue make brown. 
 

Lighten brown enough and that tan will start to look orangey. Darken orange and it will start to look brown.

This is a very unpopular opinion, but looking back at the inevitable former Browns uniform set, they really weren’t all that bad of a modernization attempt on a traditional uniform. It was arguably poorly executed with the “BROWNS” on the pants and the overstretching of the sleeve stripes among other things, but by no means was the set terrible beyond repair.

Seriously. Removed the contrast stitching, the lettering on the pants and the overstretched sleeve stripes and it doesn’t look too bad even with the huge CLEVELAND on the chest

"If they only took away the major design elements, it would be fine" is not a good fix of a poor uniform. 

 

The stupid wordmarks, stitching, and extended stripes were the whole damn design. If you take those away, what are you even left with?

After messing with the levels it looks like the white jersey has brown numbers and traditional 5 stripes (brown-orange-brown-orange-brown) on the sleeves. No wordmark on the front. Not even a small one. Brown facemask stays.

Even the contrast stitching isn't that bad.
