New Vikings Uniforms

Recommended Posts

I just meant the purple helmet/white jersey/yellow pants wouldn't look good. I think purple/purple/yellow would be fantastic though.

And with Minnesota, the yellow pants look good with the maroon jersey because the number is only yellow. Maroon pants look better with the away jersey than the yellow pants do.

You guys are forgetting the NFL example...the STEELERS! (also Iowa)

Black Helmet/Yellow-Gold pants, even with the white jerseys.

But even then, the yellow helmet/black jersey/yellow pants of their throwback looks better. Not saying that their current look is bad, just a matter of opinion, I guess.

What would you guys think if we got something like the early LSU Pro combat but the stripes would be over the shoulder/collar bone area instead of upper arm/sleeve.

Basically if you swapped where the ucla stripe/LSU stripe with the traditional viking sleeve stripe pattern.

please excuse the quick crappy photoshop

Stylistically it would be just like the SMU unis. Personally not a fan of them.

My money is on the Viking's going back to the old 90's uni's with updated horns on a chrome/metallic helmet. They'll be the first NFL team to use the new Nike template for shoulder loops that LSU debuted in the Chick-fil-a bowl last season. And a new number font to properly fit on the chest between the stripes. Zach+Mettenberger+Chick+fil+Bowl+LSU+v+Clemson+q2WkbUwdAc2x.jpg

I posted these in Concepts earlier...my take on the shoulder stripe idea. I could see them turning out like this, with a matte helmet and either purple/grey/black face mask.

I was more or less agreeing with you.

And the bolded is credited big time. I hate the "gold" pants white jersey away schtick.

The whole city gets away with the black and yellow black and yellow black and yellow.

SMU :censored:ed up by changing the stripe location. They had a good thing going and then Nike had to :censored: on it.

The Redskins are another example where the yellow pants look great with the maroon jersey, but awful with the white, since the helmet is not yellow. As for the Steelers, the yellow pants with white jersey has always bugged me. I've never liked it. But a few months ago we had this debate and someone did a mock of the Steelers with white jersey and black pants, and it didn't look as good as I had imagined it would. But in general, I agree that if the jersey is white, the pants either need to match the helmet or be white.

When wearing purple pants (if they choose to do so), those socks are all wrong. They should be in white socks with the shoulder striping in the centre of the socks. There should be no purple at the most upper part of the socks.

Seems that KC and Chicago are two of the teams that have their socks right when wearing their colored pants.

I'm just glad a team who ruint their uniforms is changing them. Atlanta, Arizona, and Cincinnati need to follow suit.

... do they really?

Not EVERY teams' original or older looks were really that much better. If anything, those three just need to tweak their current uniforms.

True, but in the case of those three teams, their olders looks WERE much better. The Falcons and Bengals have never looked worse, and it's not even really close. I don't think the Cardinals have ever had a great uniform, but their current set still sucks and is far worse than what they wore previously.

I love the current Falcons and Cardinals looks.

I know there has been a lot of talk of people wanting to go back a darker shade of purple, but with the realease of the new draft caps (yes, complete with new logo) it looks like these will be the official colors for the Vikings and there fore, what will be used on the unis.

Yeah, I could be remembering it wrong, but i think Colorwerx already confirmed that the only color change the Vikes were getting was the slightly different gold.
