 However, they should also have grey pants to have a second option, and they should have a pair of white striped socks to wear on the road to stop that uniform from being so bottom-heavy. 

 

 

 

Especially if they have to visit Miami, Jacksonville, Tennesse, or even Buffalo when it's hot.

Let New England keep the silver. If nothing else, it's their way if distinguishing themselves from the other red-and-[royal and/or navy] blue teams in the league.

I say this knowing next to nothing about how NFL teams manage their laundry or branding, but could it be possible that Bob Kraft is just being thrifty or waste-averse? Since these are just Color Rush unis promoted to regular wear, is it feasible that they just still have a boatload of old numbers or last year's jerseys to burn through? 

 

If this is a ridiculous suggestion, I'll hand in my uniform critic card on my way out the door.  

 

@andrewharrington (who knows far more than I or most of us about this stuff) pretty much suggested the same thing in another thread on the SiG forum, so there is that...

I'm still just so put off by the new typeface situation. There are benefits and drawbacks to both generic block and their very Y2K established typeface. This tweaked version is just the worst of all the worlds, to me. Looks like the team took the field wearing the cheapo no-brand jerseys from Target instead of the authentic stuff.

 

I've taken to calling that particular font "Brady Block".

 

And from here on,  let it be formally established that the 2001-2019 Patriots font, by the power vested in Buc, will heretofore be referenced as "Brady Block".

The Pats new uniforms looked better on the field than I was expecting.  I think with silver pants they could have a solid look

Even the white pants would look better there.

I said this a few times on the boards before, I don't think silver/grey is a neutral jersey colour in football like it is in baseball. Silver is a colour unto itself in football, not a swap for white.

 

It looks out of place here on the Pats and I've always thought it looked bad on the Panthers.

 

You're right - it's its own color, which is why the Patriots should wear silver pants with their white jerseys.

 

Navy/red/silver is a perfectly fine color scheme, and looks good on the Pats.

Agreed.  If the Patriots made a decision that they only wanted to have one pair of pants, they picked the wrong color. The white jersey over gray pants would look  immeasurably better than the navy jersey over navy pants does.

After watching some of the game last night, I'd say the Patriots uniforms have grown on me since they've been unveiled. I might even say I like the current number font a little bit more than the old one now. It seems evident they were trying to match the wordmark on the front of the jersey, which I like. 

 

This also seems like it might be an unpopular opinion but I prefer the red/navy/red striping on the away, as opposed to the other way around. It helps tie in to the red facemask and the red-heavy stripes on the pants.

 

I do agree though that silver pants for this set should have been a no-brainer. They would have looked really good last night especially.

I get the argument for silver pants for the Patriots' home jersey, but I don't see the need on the away. They made white-over-navy their look in the Brady era and it was fine. My gripe with them now, if anything, is that the silver layer of number outlining looks more out of place than it used to.

I also appreciated the players that used the white legging look rather than the blue sock/legging look with the Blue pants for this past week's game

I just wish they had silver and white as alternate pants. They may have those saved for when they finally unveil the red alternates once the NFL eases the one helmet rule. Or at least one can hope

Would you be amenable to white socks with the red/navy/red stripes, paired with the navy pants? I think that would take care of the navy heavy road look for the Pats.

Striped socks would take care of MANY pants issues or even whole uniforms at that.

That makes sense to me, and might even work on the homes as well. I'm not sure what's up with the socks on this set; there's enough white that it doesn't quite activate the leotard look with the navy pants, but there's not enough for the design to look properly balanced.

Tonight is another instance where I think the Patriots could really use silver pants.

 

Other than that though, I honestly love their new uniforms. A solid update that still maintains the essence of the Patriots’ brand.

I like the Pats new uniforms. Gray and white pants would be a nice option to have, along with a red jersey too. On the white away jersey I don't like the red/blue/red stripes, I would of liked to see red/white/red to match the pant stripes.

Numbers don’t match anything else. Should be navy with thick red outline. Either that or change the shoulder hoops.

Pats really need to switch the coloring on the shoulder stripes. The red on the outside sticks out like a sore thumb.

The problem is, blue doesn't look much better.

What they really need to do, is to put a white stripe between the red and blue, like on Bledsoe's hand warmer.

If my memory serves me right, it’s only like that because it was a holdover from Pat Patriot. If you look closely on the Elvis you can see the outline of the patch/decal that was used to cover up Pat
