Patriots Unveil New Uniforms

Recommended Posts

Underwhelming to say the least. Could have went white helmet with Pat the Patriot and would have been a solid set. Keeping the solver helmet really ruins it for me.

Don't you think it's a little unfair to paint the entire community with such a broad brush? There's a reason that the blue pinstriped suit has been around forever. There's also a reason why you probably aren't wearing a 70's leisure suit or 80's parachute pants right now. Today's "fire" is often tomorrow's punchline. Point being, it isn't entirely about old is good and new is bad. It's about people not signing on for tomorrow's punchline today. In other words, the blue pinstriped suit is always going to work. We know what happened to leisure suits and parachute pants.

 

FWIW, there are quite a few modern designs that I really like and there are quite a few "old-fashioned" designs that I really don't like. What matters most to me is whether or not I think a uniform looks good. Period. This community disagrees with me all the time. I don't care and I never take it personally. 

 

 

In general I see your point. But this topic is not, in my view, a good example of it. It's hard for me to see wanting the Patriots in white helmets and red jerseys as anything but nostalgia for old days. In this case the old days were the Patriots being a constant laughingstock and their stadium being an overgrown high school field with regular sewage issues. The Brady-era had flaws and was of its time, true, but they won six titles with it, and if that still doesn't allow you to establish something like a baseline look, what does?

Nice.  I'd love to see the Grey pants with the White jersey, having a Red/Navy/Red stripe to match that jersey.  

 

They could wear:

 

A.  Navy over Grey

B.  White over Grey

C.  Navy over Navy

 

And everything would be in-sync and balanced.

 

They desperately need to add a Grey pant to this set.  It's iconic to their brand and look, IMO.

Again, please excuse the crudeness of this mock-up. I've updated the socks as well as the previously updated pants.

No TV numbers is a complaint I don't understand.  They're unnecessary, as college has proven, and would probably look terrible here.

Honestly -- I don't love a lot of white and silver both being used on the uniforms. Perhaps that's why the existing uniforms had little white on the home jerseys, and almost no silver on the away jerseys. Pair both of those AND navy and red and I think there's too much going on. I don't see the need for gray pants here -- the new stripe pattern introduces enough white to the home jersey that more gray/silver doesn't look great in my eyes.

 

(And the helmet doesn't bother me -- I don't know why, maybe it's because it's a different material, maybe the logo silver is all I need. But I'm totally fine with a silver helmet over an otherwise R/W/B uniform.)

 

I wish the navy pants stripe matched the shoulder stripe better, and that the navy color block on the socks was smaller, to reduce the mono-naviness of it. But otherwise I don't see navy pants, themselves, as an issue.

Still some of the worst helmets in NFL history.

 

Never liked a team named the Patriots inexplicably wearing Red, white, blue, and.......silver?!

 

Plus flying Elvis was always a terrible logo.

 

I do love the concept by @B-mer with the white helmet.

No, it’s not unfair at all. Look at how many people reject just about every modern design here. When people try to defend modern design trends, they usually wind up being mocked and derided.

 

Oh please. People get mocked and derided for way more :censored: than that around here. That aside, I've seen just as many people get lit up for liking traditional designs. We're on a forum talking about jerseys and sock stripes. Let's stop pretending this is the Harvard Speech and Parliamentary Debate Society. People are going to disagree about silly things.

Not me. I generally see it as being pretty one-sided.

Sure, but it’s just an aspect of CCSLC culture I dislike. I guess I’m just a “swooshketeer” then, beholden to “Fire” designs and all the funky trends.

In other words, people are disagreeing with your opinion and you don't like that very much. Believe me, I know the feeling. B)

Lateral move

Upgrade on the road. Lateral move at home. At least they have normal stripes now.

Each piece of the uniform looks like it was designed by a different person who had no contact with the other designers. I hate this.

One huge miss is stripes should be red and white only. Look at the logo. Look at the American flag. Red and white stripes. When you put blue in the middle of the red stripes it changes the feel completely. Red and white stripes are iconic.

including the 2002 Houston Texans uniform designers. 

 

 

Sorry...I still can't get over the pants are full-time now.

I didn't think I would, but I truly do miss their kinda crappy custom number font on these.

Like

- The New number font is subtler and looks way classier

- Love the shoulder stripes, as opposed to the silver and blue pieces of fabric on the shoulders.

- Love the look of the road set with the white jersey and blue pants.

- Bye bye side panels

 

Dislike

- Monochrome on the home set, get some grey or white pants going

- I wish the striping on the pants was consistent with the shoulder stripes on the home set.

- I wish the logo wasn't underneath the wordmark above the front numbers.

Agreed. That’s the biggest issue with the home uni is the mono color. It always looked terrible on Thurs night, and now it’ll look terrible 8x a year.

There are aspects of the CCSLC culture that I don't like. The difference between us, I suppose, is I'm not interested in screaming at the ocean. Especially when I'm wrong. B)

It's like a lateral move on a 5° incline. It's an improvement, but not by much.

 

Browns

Bucs

Colts 

Pats

Not from anything I have seen. No Color Rush, throwback or Alternate will be released in 2020.

Guarantee you the hoodie hates the very existence of alternates.

How many fans are like "ah yes, a nod to the Drew Bledsoe socks"?

Admittedly, I’m not a Pats fan, but I see pretty much any sock striping on any team as a good thing.
