Houston Texans Update

Here's another updated uniform that combines eras. I always thought the Titans should have taken new colors and left the Oilers name and colors behind in Houston. That didn't happen, but that doesn't mean the Texans can't bring Luv Ya Blue back to Houston. I would never expect this to happen--can't imagine the Texans would adopt Columbia Blue when the Titans already use it for their primary (as a relic of their days in Houston, to boot) in the same division. But I think the red/blue, with navy as a trim color and as part of the logo, really pops with the Texans font and uniform style.

I'm happy with this so far but it feels incomplete. I figured I'd throw it up on here and see what you all think. Thanks!

Between the helmet and uniforms, and the logo and wordmark, you're using the 3rd and 4th colors of the logo as the primary and secondary of the uniforms. It makes them look forced, for the most part. I think the issue here is that you're using too many colors, and in the wrong way. I think the Texans logo needs the white space you filled in, so there should be a better way to incorporate "luv ya blue". I think if you want to bring it back (and make it look good), you should introduce it as a highlight color (keylines, outlining numbers and stripes, etc.), or as a primary to replace the navy. Otherwise, it will look forced, like this IMO.

Thanks for the input. Updated with the logo becoming Columbia Blue/Red with a navy outline. Tried it both ways in regards to the white space. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

The logo is supposed to represent the Texas state flag. Changing the color of it removes that symbolism.

That's why I originally kept it navy. It may just be that there isn't a good way to keep the symbolism of the logo while moving toward a primarily Columbia Blue identity. Then again, the current Deep Steel Blue isn't the same blue that is on the Texas flag, anyway, so maybe it's a moot point.

No baby blue...heck the Titans are already using colors similar to the Oilers and since the Texans set is perfect now you can never improve perfection.

Not necessarily. The Texas state flag uses royal blue, so switching to columbia blue wouldn't make the Texans logo any more "incorrect" than it already is.

swilson160: I understand what you're going for, but the double blue just looks forced and detracts the simplicity that makes the Texans uniforms so good. The only way I see this working at all is if you just straight up swap the navy for columbia.

Not a big fan of this one. It looks odd, and forced. I think you can make it work with a little simplification and tweaking, but I find the Baby-blue outline on the Navy blue and Red logo very out of place. Perhaps just make the Navy blue part of the logo baby blue? If you want it to authentically mimic the Oilers logo, give it a light red outline.
