LV RAIDERS SILVER

Recommended Posts

It seems that the shade of silver the Raiders are using these days is lighter than it used to be.

It almost looks white (especially on a sunny day).

I wish they would go to a slightly darker shade of silver (I couldn't find any good images from this season, but they look the same as last season).

Probably to do with the translation on to Nike's stupid flat fabric.

 

This photo is from 2016, when I guess they were still using their pre-Nike pants.

Though there are images of it in the RBK days also looking a little too light:

They’re still using pre-Nike pants. It’s most likely all due to lighting and/or better cameras.

Are you certain they haven't switched over yet?  The material looks awfully flat now.

Regardless of whether or not it changed, it should be darker. I understand how traditional and perfect the uniform is, but the silver is too close to white to be noticeable on the away set for me.

Yes you can tell by the pad pockets, and still being tied up zipper area. Nike pants don’t have either of those. Can’t tell if they still have belts but I’d assume they do with the tied up area. That’s the real big difference since Nike pants don’t have any belts.

Yeah I've noticed this since week 1. Silver definitely is a lot lighter. I like it.

As far as I can tell the silver on the pants has been the same ever since 2002 except they were way more shinier with Reebok. They still are sorta shiny but not like it use to be. I dont think the uniforms are made by Nike still.

No NFL uniforms are made by Nike. 
 

But we know you mean made with Nike’s “look at me!” proprietary fabrics.  And I think you’re right, the Raiders are one of the holdouts.  Since that fabric doesn’t come in silver, that’s a no-brainer, something even Junior Davis can’t screw up.
