Coincidentally, that was the look I personally liked the least...BUT, I'm quoting this picture again because the road look I like most...is right there in the background. 😁

I wonder how many rapid posts can make this thread hot and trick people into thinking there was a leak.

 

And to stay on topic...the current set looked best on the road with white over black and orange socks. My two cents.

Had that happened, [I believe] it'd have been moreso the fault of Jimmy Haslam than Nike, being the UT alumnus that he is.  (As we all know, the Volunteers' signature color is orange.)

 

 

As much as I liked that look when they wore it in the game wherein Vonn Bell cleaned Smith-Schuster's TikTok clock, I think the reason it works so well is because it's an alternate.  Making it primary might cause it to lose a little luster...although, OTOH, no team yet has a primary light/light/dark primary look, so the Bengals could look unique from that standpoint.

That isn’t including the orange pants which you know will happen now.

Anything with that white side panel can’t be the best look of any set.

I for one hope they aren't doing side panels that are "meant to be worn together" Like the new ATL red stripe ones.

I would love for them to resist the urge to have yoga pants like the Saints and Jags.

The leaks don’t have side panels

As much as I hate side panels I think the bengals could actually pull them off. If they were to put the 3 tiger stripes that are in the leak where a side panel would be I think it'd look alright. I hope they dont do that however.

I understand what you're saying, but disagree with it. In the context of ONLY the jersey, it could work. When you combine side panels with the pants, they infrequently work.

Just over an hour away from the reveal and I’m impressed over how little has gotten out. Besides the eBay leaks, which I believe are real, but don’t necessarily reflect how it will look on a player on the field. We still haven’t seen the pants or socks or the whole set together. Kudos to the Bengals. 
 

Additionally, I’m impressed with Elizabeth Blackburn’s handling of this whole social media aspect of the Bengals. Since Mike Brown has given up some of his control, his daughters (Katie as well) have kicked all the ass in presenting the Bengals as an important NFL franchise. Hope their play on the field reflects this new attitude as well.

They're not bad. And they're not Yoga pants so I consider it a win.

They're good! I mean really they nailed keeping the traditional look that's unquestionably them. The stripes look good an non-gimmicky, and on the cut of the players the shoulders do look great. I with the number outline was a touch thicker and the white jerseys had more orange, but its 100% an upgrade

They’re nice, I dunno about the color rush being the new road tho but maybe it’s fine.

 

Orange as the new primary makes a lot of sense considering tigers are obviously orange.
 

I guess you could say...orange is the new black?

Doubt you'll see that combo much, if at all, since they have white pants with orange stripes as well.
