This board is always the opposite it seems of the general public. I've basically seen nothing but hate for them on Twitter and other platforms... I like the simplicity but think they do a good job as well of meshing what once was and currently is.

 

I find that trend to be generally true a lot of the time as well, but I've also always thought that the worst thing that can happen for a new uniform reveal is having just the retail version of the new jersey leak. Most of us are extremely detail-oriented and at least a little creative, so we're able to imagine how this should or could function within a full context, and can appreciate it as a result. For others, they just see a wrinkly jersey on a hanger that lacks a lot of detail, so it's automatically bad.

 

Presentation and context are huge for these reveals in building up excitement, and a leak like this robs the team of those things.

I'm willing to bet that with how popular the all-white color rush look was, the new white jerseys will be a flat reverse of the orange tops, with black stripes and orange numbers.

 

My question is that if we assume the white jersey has a stripe pattern does that mean stripeless pants to mix/match or 2 sets of white pants like the broncos and others because the striping did not tie out?

I feel like the orange numbers make the plain black-on-white stripes a little easier to take.

 

Agreed. And creates some more distinction from the other orange-heavy team in their division.

 

Also, I kind of a think a wolf grey ("tiger white") shirt could work for these new Bengals.

Lets just stop with the idea of this concept here, burn it, then bury it and never speak of it again.

I think a major takeaway for me is how the fan uniforms are straying further and further from the on-field stuff. I think the sleeves are too long on the fan uniforms. Yes, they make a replica cut, but I dont have interest in paying 300+ for a uniform.

 

I'm a size Medium, and previously ordered a Medium jersey. The sleeves touch my elbows. Zero of my t-shirts have that long of sleeves. Why the jersey has to be so long it makes no sense... We buy them to match the on-field players right? RIGHT? I'm not asking for them to be form fitting, I just think the sleeves are progressively getting longer, yet the on field sleeves are shorter.

 

This is yet another jersey that will look so different (and better) on shoulder pads, and bad on the fans.

I feel like the replica sleeves have always been long as hell though. I have two size large Reebok Steelers jerseys, and the sleeves go down to my elbows. This is a problem that's never been fixed regardless of manufacturer.

Ignoring the pants stripe because who the hell knows what they'll do, but overall I think the mockup looks pretty great. I know tigers don't have orange stripes, but tigers don't play football either. I can forgive them for being zoologically inaccurate if the point still comes across and still looks good. 

 

As for numbers on the white jerseys - black please. It's historically the color they've always worn, and easier for legibility. I could be talked into and get used to orange numbers, though. 

 

I'm a fan of this cats*** football team so my opinion carries more weight than the rest of you goofs.

I feel the sleeves are long to cover over regular t shirt sleeves it’s been that case forever though.

No way nike allows their ugly logo to be the same color as the tiger stripes. They'll make sure it sticks out like a sore thumb

Yeah, but it's the orange swooshes that truly make the jersey great.
