Today, the Chargers posted a video on their social media platforms of Joey Bosa being shown their new uniforms during a Zoom meeting (unfortunately, but obviously, the uniforms are off camera). He commented on how he liked the simplicity of them. In other words, I don't think we'll see a gradient disaster like the Falcons and possibly Rams. Hopefully something more in line with the new Buccaneers uniforms as well as the Browns.

THANK GOD.

From the Chargers Reddit. Reflection of the Uniforms caught in a Knife.

I see a Powder Blue Jersey with White Numbers outlined in Yellow. People on Chargers Reddit think it's Yellow Pants, but I don't see it

They’ve been featured as a sleeve patch on several other uniforms from throughout their history as well, these are just the examples with their current set.

 

I don't mind sleeve patches.  That's a good place to put goofy logos like that.  When I say 'prominent', I'm referring to when Cleveland put the chief on the chest, or the Blue Jays T-Bird uni, or even the Black Jay jersey.

 

Also, that light blue uniform is

Let's be real here - that's usually the case.

I think those are either yellow or white pants just on a powder background. Either way, this is looking very promising!

This makes me wonder how much input these branding exercises get from stakeholders like New Era -- the groups that'll be selling the logos but aren't directly involved with the team. Because it's hard to imagine that sort of representative not raising a flag somewhere along the way, if this was gonna be the end product. Unless they're thinking the glue-on rubbery patches, et al will mostly replace embroidery in the near-future? Because this gradient thing isn't very embroiderable.

as someone who has actively watched New Era’s quality nosedive over the last several years, not to mention the lack of QC in any manufacturing... New Era doesn’t give a ****

The Rams are doing themselves a disservice by using the LA logo on a blue background everywhere, IMO it looks far superior on non-blue backgrounds with the blue outline visible.

New Era is directly involved. They have the on field hat contract.

Looks like the Chargers won't be limiting themselves to one emoticon/smiley:

Probably means nothing, but a lot of Rams fans are reporting their orders for hats with the LA logo are getting canceled.

Well from what we've seen they're sh-t ... I wonder if they're fixing the gradient issue?

They should but I would say it is probably too late at this point.

They looked like complete clowns, and I'm convinced this is one of those cases where people just think that something that was old and short-lived is cool because of the novelty.

 

In addition to the wordmark that consumes the entire front of the jersey, you have a ray across the stomach that looks more like a drawing or cartoon than a sports logo.  Smaller players looked especially silly in these.  Maybe a gradient could have worked on a different design, but as it stood, those were an embarrassment and unprofessional.

MOD EDIT: Be nicer.

Why so hostile? He didn’t insult you personally just said the uniform was bad and why.
