Not sure why that is the case. I'm asking for where they look good, and if they need 'help' to arguably look good, then they still don't look good.

Because you've narrowed your conditions. I said I don't believe all pants are required stripes to look good, and you made the argument that since the two cases you're willing to accept without stripes don't look great, it isn't possible. Its like saying you can't make a good uniform if its Kelly Green because the Jets look isn't very good.

Stripeless pants can work, but IMO only light colors.  Stripeless black* or navy don't.  

 

That being said, plain white looks collegiate to me, so I'm not sure I'd dig that.  The STL gold though?  Perfect.  No stripe neeed.  I tihink stripeless silver could work too in the right case.  Had the Brady-era Patriots not had the silly side panels, then solid silver would have worked for them.

 

 

*I'm OK with Baltimore's, though I'd prefer if it had a purple stripe.  Barely noticeable, but plays into the whole Raven theme.

It would work for the Raiders if they didn't have the single black stripe on the helmets. Gotta have that helmet/pants harmony if you can.

You know what, after a season and a half I've decided I don't hate the Jets black unis


they fail the “how does an old guy look in them” test with Flacco tonight.  
 

it’s similar to seeing Elway in the mono-navy clown suits.

I was picturing Joe Namath in these uniforms and having a good laugh

I don't know if this is a widely held opinion or not, but I don't care: I think the silver-numbered Raiders road unis are better and far superior than their black-numbered primary's. Something about the black outline seals the deal for me. (I also fancy the Chargers' CR unis, a rare mono-navy combo I like).

Winners and losers for the Raiders in Week 9 vs. Chargers

I prefer the raiders silver numbers too, just wish the black outline was a little thicker.

Cards need to do something with their helmets. 

The almost all-white buckets make their heads seem ridiculously large.

They look like a team of Great Gazoos.

I have been saying it for years - the Raiders' AFL throwback jerseys were their perfect road look.

Without shoulder pads, it sort of looks like the top of the jersey is green but he put a black cape over it.

They should add capes and really lean into their 'Gotham' identity. Dark Knight/Black Jerseys! Nike doen't even have to write a thing! Why not!!!

Speaking of which (and I know it's not the type of cape you mean), I really want these to come back into more common usage. They show up from time to time these days, but not enough for my taste.

It's one of those rare choices with no wrong answer but I totally agree that the silver numerals are better. Perhaps since they play in the 'Silver State' now, they should make that a permanent change.

spacer.pngI agree! The Chiefs were wearing those winter capes (or something similar) a few weeks ago in Denver when it was snowing.
