Here's my recap of the day's events:

Redskins Unveil 80th Anniversary Alternate Uniforms

If you want to get an idea of the detail put in the helmets, here's an up-close photo of it:

Also, here's a good shot detailing the color in the jersey.

Still don't think these uni's look that good, but that helmet texture is impressive.

I will say that I don't really like this uniform, especially compared to their usual set and other throwback options they have. However, I can absolutely respect the work to make it as authentic as possible to the original. That helmet pattern is damn cool.

Fantastic it's about time that a team has done a throwback to the exact year and got it as accurate as possible. No it's not the Best Redskin uniform & yes they have better options to choose from but for being from 1937 it's fantastic. Uniform & especially the helmet and face mask.

I'm wondering if after this throwback reveal a lot of reveals will happen and we'll really see Nike really did to all the teams' uniforms (alternates, throwbacks, whites, cleats, etc.)?

Also, the detail put into that helmet is incredible.

Interesting. I hope the Packers have a similar effect when they next wear their throwback blues.

This new technology where they can texture the helmets in so many different patterns is really going to change football helmet design in the future IMO. I've always felt that helmets have been somewhat underutilized from a design standpoint despite the decals and stripes, with this new technology they could really do some interesting things. This new texturing could really give some teams a very unique look.

Yeah that is great, every team that uses a leather era throwback should do this.

Agreed. In fact I think this development opens up the door to more leather helmet-era throwback designs.

Is the facemask black or a dark brown? I can't really tell.

Well, lets not go that far. It's definitely a hybrid, and obviously the color of the helmet and pants are debated here, as both the GUD and the Heritage Sports Art plaques had the pants and helmet as old gold. Still looks good though, except for...

I don't know, but it looks bad. Give me grey if you can't match the helmet.

Man, those were awesome.

They should just make those the permanent uniforms.

*DROOL*

Pure Heaven

Someone said they like the new throwback patch for when they remove the dude off the helmets.

Keep the stripes on the sleeves, take the spear off and replace it with the new patch.

BAM.

Not only does grey not even come close to matching the helmet, it also sticks out like a sore thumb against a uniform that features no grey at all.

I don't agree that gray is the neutral color for facemasks on throwback helmets that throwback to pre-facemask helmets. (you might have to read that sentence a few times). If that helmet didn't have a facemask, the color is open for interpretation.
