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.

According to the website black is still the primary.

The Bengals’ website lists “primary black,” “primary white” and “orange alternate.” I don’t know who started the “orange is the new primary” thing, but that’s not right.

Two pairs of white pants is the best news I’ve heard in a while. All orange would’ve been a nightmare. Really happy with the pants stripe too.

I was liking alot of this and then I saw the color rush pants with the black jersey. Not good.

I think an orange outline around the stripes would help. It's mimic the numbers on the white jersey and it's just the reverse of what they did with the other white pants. I don't think it'd ruin the aesthetic they were going for with the all white road either.

Not a fan of the white pants with orange stripes, would have rather liked to see black stripes on an orange fill for the stripe panel.

They... did the thing?

 

These look good. Definite upgrade while still keeping the best parts of the design, aka the tiger stripes. Number font is underwhelming but that’s small potatoes. Really nice job imo. 
 

8/10

They're :censored:ing rad and I'll hear nothing else. I'm very happy. If all they did was remove the white side panels these would've been a win.

 

The only thing that I don't LOVE is the white pants with the orange stripes. I feel like that kills the "9 possible combinations" because that will look dumb with the white jerseys.

Two immediate thoughts: 

1) The white numbers will be harder to read on the orange jersey. They need a thicker outline or they should be black.

 

2) The white pants with orange stripes have that black outline, which is jarring when every other stripe is one-color. Just have white with solid orange and white with solid black and then simply match the stripes on the jersey you’re wearing that day.

I would give this update a 8 out of 10. -1 for not TV numbers and -1 for the white pants not being consistent. If the white pants with orange stripes have black trim, then the white pants with black stripes needs to have orange trim.

I don't know about that...there are two teams in the NFL with orange jerseys and white numbers and legibility is just fine for both.  Black numbers on orange and red jerseys are harder to read than white numbers...they really get muddled. It's pretty clear that the Bears jerseys don't have a thick outline and I've never heard anyone complain about legibility with white numbers. 

Bears to wear orange jerseys Sunday vs. Chargers

 

 

 

These new Bengals unis are fantastic. The orange/black/white looks great, and the all white looks great, though needs orange socks.

Cincinnati Bengals Unveil New Uniforms

April 19, 2021 - 12:53 PM

Although an eBay leak in early March prematurely revealed the design, the Cincinnati Bengals officially unveiled their new uniforms on Monday morning.  The home black, orange alternate and white road jerseys feature a new tiger stripe pattern on the sleeves and shoulders that is somewhat reminiscent of the Bengals’ previous

Is the oversized-white t-shirt part of the design?  It's got to be a bit of a bummer for a designer to work on a new uniform and then for it to be butchered during it's unveiling because the players want to look like idiots.  Why even try when they're just doing to do this to it anyway?

Boo for the black pants, but the other three combinations are a pretty big upgrade from the last set.

That's been a trend for awhile now.  I think it's 80% fashion thing, 20% a "here's something DBs can get caught up in and may cheese me a few PI calls this season" thing.

The white pants w/ the orange stripes is dumb, but it's not a major sin.  The rest of it is totally acceptable, if not an outright win.
