Why are the sleeve stripes at an angle?

I wonder if thats something to do with the Linesmans jerseys and the difficulty of sleeve stripes on those, and a desire for everyone to be wearing exactly the same uniform?

Overall I am quite liking the 49ers jersey, even with the odd sleeve stripes. (Incidentally, I navigated away from the link and couldn't find my way back at all with backpaging! Seems like the 49ers would still like these to be quiet!)

I hate those stripes so much. Suddenly the Jaguars don't look quite so bad and the Lions (even with their imperfections) look incredible.

Great, our jerseys alone just scream Nebraska. So much for standing out looking different.

Is there a problem with Nebraska's? Or is it just that they look too similar? I agree that they look similar. But I will NEVER say anything bad about my Huskers or there perfect classic uniforms.

We could make the Lions, Jags, and 9ers new uniforms threads into one and name it how not to update a team... are the 9ers changing their name to the Zebras or something?

It's not just the sleeve stripes (which look ridiculous), but look at the collar on the replica. It's got some kind of half collar thing going on. The one thing I liked about replica jerseys is how the sleeve stripes always go all the way around. Just cutting them off for no reason doesn't make any sense.

Also, not a fan of the team name on the jersey. NFL teams should have enough of a distinctive identity that you don't need the team name on the front to recognize their jerseys. It is America's most popular sport, so most casual fans should be able to name the team just glancing at the jersey. Obviously some colleges mimic pro jerseys, but colleges often put their school's name on the jersey. Agreed about the stripes. Hopefully in action, they won't look like zebra stripes, but I doubt it.

The purpose of the team name, especially in the case where there are no other logos on the sleeves, is to put some kind of trademarked mark on the jersey, so that every red jersey with white numbers isn't a de-facto 49ers replica. It also makes it tougher on counterfeiters.

Colorwerx is correct... They aren't the so-called "championship colors." The red jersey is either a lighter cardinal color or burgundy (Redskins). Andy Dolich's statement was pure BS (Doesn't any football official lie or spin). It's actually a shade between the 80's and the jersey of 1996-2008.

I forgot one other color - "maroon." The 49ers in "maroon?" The Dolich statement was pure "moron."

You can add a gray facemask for no reason whatsoever, but you'd better not even think about ever adding black trim!

Um, excuse me, sir, your stripes seem to be falling off your sleeves. Could you please pick those up?

I like 'em. They managed to take a very old-school striping pattern and both make it unique to the team and make it applicable to modern jersey cuts.

Also, I'm not usually a fan of wordmarks under the collar, but I like it this case. The new 49ers wordmark in a solid one colour scheme looks pretty bold.

I'm a fan of the jerseys, and I don't think we'll see any surprises with the pants. I'm just worried that they'll add a grey facemask. The stripes are a new twist on an old design, and I'm guess that logo will follow suite (being a recolour of the modernized version). A grey facemask will just look out of place. Personally I think a white facemask will look fantastic with this new set.

I'm not too crazy about the sleeves nor the current wordmark the 49ers have been use.

However, I'll hold out full judgment til I see the jerseys with rest of the set.

Maybe I'm imagining it wrong, but (assuming their goal was the accommodate how linemen are wearing jerseys these days) shouldn't the sleeve stripes be reversed (i.e., disappear in the armpits rather than on the outside)?

You'd be missing the two Blue stripes on the Cardinals' old jerseys however.

It's not that they look horribly bad, but if I was grading them on effort, they'd get an F.
