Cleveland Browns Unveil New Uniforms

Recommended Posts

These two uniforms are making me way more happy than someone my age should be about such things.

The Browns hit a grand slam with these uniforms. 

 

Not thrilled with the Brown pants but the side stripe make them a bit more tolerable. And even though they were introduced as part of the set I think the frequency with which they'll be worn largely depends on what kind of reaction they get once they're out on the field...if fans are kind of meh or hate them then the Brown pants will slowly fade into oblivion.

 

Other than that it's perfect.

Nike is 3 of 4 so far in my mind (Good: Bucs, Browns, Colts, Bad: Falcons)   Fingers crossed for Rams, Chargers and Patsies. 

At this point I'm taking @canzman at his word and opinion and I'm expecting to like the Chargers and Patriots and dislike the Rams.

Quote from owner "do people like the orange pants? I haven't heard anyone mention them. Guess we missed the mark. Maybe we can talk to Nike and see if they are capable of making some orange pants for us."

 

I'd assume he's being sarcastic and keeping them a surprise. Either that or he just wants to piss people off.

They even got the socks on the monochrome jerseys right. No one gets the socks right.

I'm actually kind of disappointed that this didn't end up being the real alternate;

I like it quite a bit better than the actual CR alt we're apparently getting.  This one has a quirky early 60's college vibe that almost works for me (at least works about as much as any Color Rush mess can work). If you sub out the brown for navy, you could see this as a Syracuse or Illinois uniform from 1959, with the stripeless elements, lack of TV numbers, and enlarged wordmark.  The Color Rush they just actually debuted is ugly and dull. This may be kind of ugly and dull, but it seems interestingly and intentionally ugly and dull, which is all the difference.

Apparently the Browns didn't want tv numbers on the Color Rush and the NFL said no. Wish they would have just nixed that whole idea and went orange.

I wish they had just ditched the numbers completely now that would have been a modern design we could get behind! Can you imagine just nothing but brown on the field well except the helmet but maybe next year they can do an all brown helmet as well? The possibilities are endless!

 

In all seriousness these are great except the socks don't line up with the jersey & pant choice but whatever! Two pairs of Brown pants & jerseys make absolutely no sense!

I sort of wish they would've retained the previous color rush jersey, which had three orange stripes, to pair with the striped brown pants. 

 

Advantages:

 

No need to pigeon hole a second set of brown knickers. 

 

All jerseys have a consistent theme of three sleeve stripes matching the numeral color. 

 

No temptation to mix the classic brown jerseys with brown pants, thus avoiding the the brown striped socks leotard look.

The previous iterations of these uniforms had the swoosh in the same color as the numbers. In this set, the swoosh is orange on both jerseys. Nike snuck in a little more pop for their logo this time around.

I’m pleasantly surprised they didn’t mess this up. Good job Browns!

It has a Lions throwback feel to it, since that also has a plain helmet, no TV numbers, and stripeless pants, and full-color socks at a time before that became normal.

 

When I look at it, I actually feel like i"m looking at a throwback - not a modern mono-for-mono's sake uniform.  Certainly not something that's necessary, and not something I'd want as their primary, but I think it's pretty nice as an alt that's not something silly and 'futuristic' like some of the color rushes we've seen.

 

It's also the only one of their uniforms that I like the brown facemask with.

The Browns look like a dignified football team again.  Way to waste 5 years of our lives, Nike.

Anything the Patriots do to update their uniforms is almost a guaranteed upgrade. I do have high hopes for the Chargers (it feels funny to say that) but I have none of that same optimism for the Rams.

I wonder if this is their "surprise in the closet" Would love to see a real throwback with standard block font and gray face masks.
