Tampa Bay Buccaneers Unveil New Uniforms

Recommended Posts

While the pewter and red isn't bad, the creamsicle color scheme is so much more unique. It's like when you see the colors of certain teams you instantly identify it with the brand.

 

Updating the current logos with the creamsicle color scheme would have given them one of the most identifiable brands in sports.

 

The vibrancy would also have been a great contrast to the other pirate team.

I'm guessing it's true.  The Packers still use Ripon pants and jerseys.  My question is What stopped Tampa from using the old pants?  That original version of pewter was the only good one they've ever had.

They wanted to and Nike said they couldn’t replicate it with the materials they use.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but before Nike, the Packers and Jets used the same shade of Green. If you see how Nike made the Jets Green before their redesign in 2019, you'd be happy.

Also, yeah. The Raiders and Cowboys still use Ripon pants. In 2012 and 2013, before changing in 2014, the Bucs used the Ripon pants with Nike Jerseys.

The Bucs were one of those teams where either of the previous two identities were great (I know there are people who hate the creamsicle/Bucco Bruce look, but IMO it rocked). So long as they committed to picking one, leaning all in, and resisting Nike/the NFL's brandspeak? They were going to come out of it alright. It looks like they did that. The Super Bowl look isn't my favourite Bucs look, but it's hard to deny that it's VERY good in its own right.

 

The colour rush set is unfortunate, but it's only going to be worn twice a year, at most. At least it's not gradient.

 

All in all? It's a damn fine look.

Bingo.

 

Nike claims they can't make pewter.

 

Okay, but again, Nike uses a color they call "anthracite" on a lot of gear and the Bucs' brown-gray definitely isn't it.

Just read a USA Today article saying the Bucs missed an opportunity to sell a lot of Creamsicle Brady jerseys.  But the Bucs have never stopped making Creamsicle jerseys for sale.  They were even making Jameis Winston Creamsicles.  Is there any new rule saying that there can’t be new creamsicle fashion jerseys?

 

Tom Brady: 30 playoff wins.

every creamsicle jersey combined: 1 playoff win.

Regardless of what it is? It's amazing to me that Nike, the largest sportswear/uniform manufacturer in the world, can't replicate a colour G-ddman Wilson Athletics managed to make in 1997.

Look. I'm buying a Tom Brady creamsicle jersey as soon as I'm able to. And it will be glorious.

If Nike's textiles aren't shiny enough for it, so be it, I can buy that I suppose. Wouldn't expect a shiny oxford shirt, either.

 

But it does seem to me that it should've been a touch lighter and maybe browner (though it's still not anthracite!).

It's not that they *can't* make shiny pants, it's that they don't want to because it would be an entirely different material that doesn't fit their specifications on weight, durability, ventilation, moisture-wickability, etc. (no matter how small the differences actually are).

It's in times like this that I remember that the Swedish national team won the ice hockey gold medal during the 2006 Winter Olympics wearing their old baggy sweaters, while everyone else was wearing Nike's state of the art moisture wicking/lighter/slimmer sweaters.

Could also simply be a cost thing - they only want to make one kind of thing, vs investing in whatever it would take to work with different types of fabrics.  I don't know - maybe different machines are needed, or because of that extra 0.000001kg, they'd have to pay the kids making it $1.00/hr vs $0.50 - or have they changed their ways in that regard?

It’s also just a matter of sourcing the material. They don’t produce the textiles, they source them through contracted companies.

And The Jags half gold helmet was also unique

The red is vibrant and they still have the orange. Again i don’t get where the sudden love for cream orange came from. I was even watching Pat McAfee react to them on Youtube and they pulled up a fan design with orange and one guy said they looked awful 

 

I personally think red and pewter are much better fit for a pirate team than tangerine orange

Dark red and pewter is also unique and instantly identifiable to the Bucs, probably more so given the fact they won a super bowl in them

Not to the same degree as a creamsicle scheme.

We are simultaneously mocking Nike’s “inability“ to match team colors, and its penchant for too-cute, oh-so-marketable color names.
