Chargers Pants

Has anyone else noticed that the Chargers pant bolts have been flipped and now have too many jags? Look at this comparison. IMO the older version of the bolt not only looks better with fewer jags, but the direction is better too as it follows the form of the leg.

I think you've got one too many "jaggies" in the current set:

In my opinion, the current ones are the correct direction, if you look at the shape of the bolt in comparison to the helmet logo. They both follow the same line...

The bolts are backwards (need to be mirrored).

Wow. You're right.

Another mistake in the Style Guide.

Maybe it's just me but I think the bolt should arc at the waist like the body does and then arc with the bend of the knee at the knee.

In Pantone's illustration, it seems to be doing that but from what I can find online and in images, it's doing the opposite.

As for the number of jags, from what I can tell, the yellow pants had 6 whereas the current version has 8. Again, without being the equipment manager it's difficult to tell, but from all I've gathered that is the case.

In any event the combo of too many jags and the double outline makes them seem busier than they need to be.

hawk is correct. In Pantone's style-guide illustration, they have the current number of "jags" at 6, just like the old pants. However, take a look at this picture:

Clearly, there are more than six "jags".
