Jaguars getting new uniforms

While j'villejags has done a nice job in rendering his concepts, I still maintain that such a move by the Jaguars would be a DOWNGRADE. The lack of Gold anywhere on the uniforms besides the helmets is a MAJOR mistake in my opinion. It leaves the uniforms far too bland.

It's too bad, as the original Jaguars uniforms were, to my mind, perfect.

I think they're de-emphasizing the wrong color...they should make teal and gold the main colors and have black for highlights. If this is Weaver's idea for making the team look more distinctive, he's wrong. If they at least added teal pants to the road uni it may have some merit.

I'd tend to agree - teal and gold ought to be the main colors.

I'd be shocked if the Jags came up with anything as classy as that home concept by j'villejags - don't know why, but I just don't see this update ending nearly so well.

No disagreement there, but short of rolling back to that -- which they clearly aren't going to do with this redesign -- I don't think this is a bad way to go. The concept (and eventual unveiled look) may not be an upgrade from the originals, but it certainly is an upgrade to this in my mind (and the road uni with no teal that complemented it):

(Also, I agree that teal socks would be better.)

Looks like merchandise with the new wordmark is already available at the online shop.

Which one of those 40 different fonts do you think is the new wordmark? None of them match the truck, from what I see.

Indeed, most are either generic varsity block fonts, fonts used by Reebok across many teams and leagues, or the old wordmark. Admittedly, the font that was on the truck did look like one of those fonts Reebok uses for apparel in many different leagues, but it's not exactly the same.

Personally I liked the Jag's font because it had evolved over the years and with the serifs it looked great the way it kinda' flowed into the serifed points. The font used in the concepts j'villejags reminds me too much of Atlanta and the Arizona which by themselves have a similar look. I don't see why eliminating gold as a thrid stripe in the numbers makes the concept any better. Too much black is what destroyed their look minus a few small changes that they could have made to the existing set...I don't see the need for a complete overhaul!

If the Jaguars owner really wants to make the Jags look more distinctive on the field, maybe he should consider changing the helmet from black to teal. Nobody wears a teal helmet, and I think the logo would stand out better on teal anyway. Here's a concept from MG Helmets:

True enough.

They either need an outline around Hairball Kitty or change the helmet color. Not being a huge fan of additional outlines, I vote for the teal helmet. Even setting aside that it would be unique in the NFL.
