Recommended Posts

You didn't have to justify design elements twenty years ago, you just kinda did stuff for the sake of doin' it.

I miss those days. 
 

“We did it because we think it looks cool.”

 

That would be so refreshing.

So has anyone seen anything at all about the Patriots new uniforms? Is this even confirmed at all with any dates, leaks, or general ideas about what’s coming? Or are we still speculating at this point?

Only just hearsay from pro shop workers that it’ll be color rush with a new color rush style road jersey. No idea if those guys actually know anything.

Pats are definitely changing. How much we don’t know but the Patriots main beat reporter even had a story that there would be changes and we would see them sometime this Spring.

Was there a reasoning for the vertical stripes in those Pats jerseys or did they just think it was neat? Like a case of  Nike StarterSpeak for the stripes representing the American flag or something?

American flag has stripes...

Well, I think it was more along the lines of “Hey, there are some soccer uniforms that have done this” (and there were at the time), so “Let’s try this on a football jersey”. And IMHO, it did look cool.

I think he means do you have a source that the american flag strips were the inspiration for the Patriots stripes.  I kinda doubt it myself - I just think they thought it was cool.

That’s why I asked. The assumption would be that it’s Patriots=America=Striped Flag, but I wanted to know if that’s the actual meaning.

I thought we got confirmation a few years ago on these boards or from UniWatch that the stripes were directly borrowed from the soccer aesthetic.

Makes sense, probably trying to capitalize on the '94 World Cup. Soccer was the future then, you know.

MOD EDIT: Like I said, if it doesn't pertain to the Patriots' new uniforms, don't post it in this thread.

I've also heard the vertical stripes were supposed to emulate soccer jerseys.

It's pretty obvious those Patriots jerseys were inspired by soccer kits, there is no way it wasn't. Even as a little kid I picked up on that. I actually liked that jersey at the time and still kinda do.

Were the drop-shadow-italic numbers supposed to evoke soccer? Or was that also just "I dunno, looked cool"? Because I really did like those numbers. They look cool. It's a funny coincidence that the Patriots used them while they were playing footsie with Hartford, and then the Whalers started using those same numbers right after they left Hartford.
