Cleveland Browns


Lights Out

The Browns have one of the few classic looks that I actually like, so I decided to keep a lot of their look the same. I made some minor tweaks - dog logo on the pants, orange numbers on the home, orange NOB on the away, brown pants with stripes - that I thought would improve the Browns' look. Comments?

The Browns tried orange numbers on the brown jerseys in 1984, used them in a preseason game, and it was ruled by the league that they were impossible to see from far away. The team had to scrap the entire set of jerseys

Here’s a 1984 newspaper clipping explaining how the Browns had to modify their home uni numbers (rare non-Pittsburgh-centric contribution from Jerry Wolper).

with the link to the newspaper story http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=kFlAAAAAIBAJ&sjid=v1YMAAAAIBAJ&pg=1066%2C2673152

and then more info appeared in the following days on uniwatch, but this was the most important one

More info on those orange-numbered Browns jerseys from 1984. Here’s what we definitely know: The orange-numbered dark jerseys were worn for one preseason game and then scrapped, and no orange-numbered white jersey was ever worn for any game, preseason or otherwise. But were the white jerseys ordered and manufactured? If so, that would explain the existence of this jersey. I explained the situation to Ravens PR man Kevin Byrne, who worked for the Browns back in ’84 (he’s even quoted in this old article about the jerseys). His response: “Doesn’t add up — I don’t remember seeing these. If they were made, they didn’t even make it to a practice with the Browns.”

So I'd recommend changing that, but otherwise, it looks like a pretty good set.

idk, i like the orange on the white numbers, but not on the brown numbers. The orange looks close to brown from far away (i base that on my above post, i realize that they don't look that close here). Considering that, the orange outline on white numbers would blend with the jersey, not the numbers, making them very visible. On the white jersey, the orange outline on brown numbers would blend with the numbers, making them look thick and muddy, and not very distinguishable. But, I realize that you want coherence in the set, so something like having the orange outline a bit away from the number, as on the above pictured orange numbered jersey, might be a solution.

Overall, it's a small detail, and not something to be too too concerned about. It's a nice concept.

Comments?

A few things:

? Change the orange belt to brown.

? Change the NOB text color to brown for better visibility.

? Switch to a white facemask.

? Add the BROWNS collar wordmark.

Then it's good to go.

I agree with all of these, and also maybe switch up the striping on the socks to either match the sleeve stripes or the pants stripe.

Do you mean gray?

My bad. It looks gray on my iPhone.
