Honestly, I view the 49ers as never actually having a CR Uniform. 

 

They debuted after the CR doors shuttered and were unveiled as “throwbacks”

But the fact that the 49ers consistently wear them with those stupid white socks means that they think of them as Color Rush uniforms.

 

It's just the same with the Giants and Saints CRs.  The white socks screw up what would otherwise be nice throwbacks.

I started watching football in the 2000's, I don't care for the weird and out there 90's throwbacks. They look bad and how successful they were in them doesn't take away from that.

They should have just brought back the '94 home throwback. Such a missed opportunity.

I’d argue that the Cowboys CR is pretty tame in comparison to their 90s counterpart aka the sleeve logo isn’t in your face. At least it has some cohesiveness to one of their uniforms whether it’s with silver pants or the CR white pants.

There’s also nothing really outlandish in the 49ers uniform either. Whether it’s the 90s or the throwback

These looked bad in 1994 and they're even worse now

Gold helmets and white pants is not a good look.  I dig the jerseys though - especially the red version.

To be fair - and I can be wrong since I’m about to type something before researching it - but weren’t the original 1950s jerseys worn with a silver helmet?

 

EDIT: MY BAD

That gold/red and silver/blue contrast when the 49ers and Cowboys were battling atop the NFC in the 90's was perfect.

The Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers both unveiled their new uniforms last season. As both teams are more or less locked into those identities for at least four more seasons we no longer really need a "LA NFL Branding" thread. It was made to highlight the teams' new brands after moving to LA and it did that. The thread is mostly talking in circles now, so let's shut'er down.

 

We can use this thread if either team makes any changes or introduces any new unis for 2021.

The thing about that 49ers throwback is that it has the wrong details but that was a common occurence with alot of the throwbacks in the 1994 season.

 

This is the real one.

I don't know if it'll be this season, but at some point this identity will have a BFBS set and it will (rightly) be ridiculed.

I mentioned this at the time of the tease, but I assume it’ll be gold in 2021 and either black or navy blue for a LA/Hollywood Nights kind of thing in 2022.

I am especially curious, though, how they hope (or plan) to unveil a new one each year beyond that, though. Red and black and/or red and yellow would surely be under consideration.

(For some reason, the picture isn't showing up for me. I don't know if others can't see it, but I'll post it for reference.)

There are other variations on these two uniforms at this time (with minor differences in striping, explaining the guy with the single red stripe on his pants in that picture a ways back in the thread, and differences in helmet and pants colors). But this was the basic idea and the shadows were only worn in 1955 and 1956. The white jersey was decidedly a "change kit" as opposed to being a regular away uniform. For instance, in 1955, they wore them once against Washington (who was also wearing their darker shade of red). 

 

Admittedly, the GUD is a fan-made resource, so it might not be accurate. However, it also strikes me as the kind of pet project that is meticulously researched and cared for, so I'd have to figure it's accurate for the most part. My guess would be that whomever designed the 1994 throwbacks (which, as has been pointed out, are notoriously half-measure, inaccurate throwbacks) kind of guessed the white jerseys were "opposite" of the red jerseys, not realizing the majority of the stripes were actually black. As for the current iteration, I was never quite clear: were they throwing back to '94? If that's the case, the jerseys (and pants, I suppose, too) are accurate. Or was it actually a throwback to the mid 50s?

 

I really like that black drop shadow. I don't know why, necessarily. It kind of feels like one of those quirks of the time: the shadows made the numbers easier to read at distance or something? And as a result, they're grandfathered in? In any event, I think the jerseys look good. But they decidedly clash with the gold helmets and the red-white-red braisher stripes.

 

As I'm thinking about it, does this look weird? Instead of adding gold to the throwback, add the drop shadow treatment to the classic/current uniforms. (I think it at least ties with the black in the logo, but it doesn't go full-on dark-mode like the late 90s 49ers did.)

The GUD is good but not infallible.

 

And it's worth pointing out that the NFL has historically done a terrible job at documenting its own uniform history.  In 1994, there was almost nothing available beyond a few scattered color photographs from papers.  The Packers even got the color of their pants wrong, and to this day routinely perpetuate mistakes from their own history.

That.  Is.  Beautiful.

Yeah that's really nice.  I wouldn't mind seeing it with gold (tan) stripes on the sleeves of both jerseys just to tie everything together.
