Looks good. I like it. Like the alt helmet.

I don't know if the northwestern-style stripes are too Steelers-like, but those tiger-striped-stripes are exactly what the Bengals should be wearing. I like it.

I don't recall anyone trying that particular solution for the Bengals', well, stripes--but man does that look good.

That said, if you're going to offset the outermost stripes on the jerseys, you should probably do the same on the pants to match.

Good job on these, though!

Yeah, that Northwestern Style stripe is inspired by the 60's throwback, seen above, but I just didn't like how it looked on the pants. It kind of muddled the stripes. I appreciate the feedback. Thanks!

Really? something like these pants with your outer stripes didn't work? This was always my favorite Bengals look, I wish they'd go back to it...your version of the "contained tiger stripes" improves even that

No, I meant that addding a northwestern like stripe oustide of that pant panel didn't look right to me. I will post an update and see what everyone thinks.

you've stretched the stripes to remain vertical, but why? There might be some realism to it with regards to the animal, but I don't think it's necessary for a sports uniform

That is the same as the first time, I didn't change it for the second version.

The font looks too much like the Bears to me.

That is the current Bengals font, just without the drop shadow.

Even so, without the drop shadow, all I see is the Bears.

I realize there are several differences here, but I can't help but see the Browns with this particular version. Maybe it's the simplicity, my screen resolution, I don't know.

That said, I'm a huge fan of the helmet. The stripes never bothered me, but this would be a welcome update if they incorporated it. Well done.

This uniform is actually a throwback to the Bengals original uniform in the 60s, which is why you think of the Browns. They were both started by Paul Brown, and was one of the reasons the Bengals changed their look in 1981.

I like the concept, but would like to see the numbers with the 80's font. Really wish the Bengals would go back to the 80's Super Bowl Era uniforms. With the addition of the 60's as an alternate would also be good. Their current set needs to die. At least most teams that went with the current style are abandoning it (Buffalo, Minnesota)

Yeah, that's a tough font to nail down, because it isn't quite block font. I tried standard block and it just didn't seem right to me, that's why I stuck with their current numbers.

Remember what Mark Twain said about Cincinnati? ( http://www.twainquotes.com/Cincinnati.html ) When the world ends he wants to be in Cincinnati because Cincinnati is twenty years behind the times. That's why the Redlegs STILL have a black drop shadow and BP cap and hat (and now dugout jacket I guess which drives me absolutely crazy) while the rest of baseball has gone back to their roots (Mets, Royals, A's)... Anyway I would like to see the throwback comeback twice a year, and I like the jersey of the concept you have, paired with pants that have simple stripes like the top I think it could be a great looking set. I hate the unis now even though Nike actually makes them look a little bit better Im more fond of the 90's unis with the simplified stripes.
