I'm always intrigued by uniforms that make no sense, or are disjointed home to road, or just otherwise seem to break the rules of "good design" but work anyway.  NY Giants all red road uniform, Ole Miss' random powder blue helmet...

 

In that spirit, here's an Arizona Cardinals uniform that really makes no sense.  You may hate it, who knows?

I do hate the black numerals on the red jersey, but I don't hate the overall design.. very interesting.. nice work

Yeah, but if the numbers were regular old red w/ black trim, it'd be just like every other Cardinals concept I've seen.

I'm talking about the red jersey.. they would be white numerals.. I think the 2-tone red in the jersey itself is different enough to distinguish it.. you can keep the black numbers on the white jersey

Love it from the head down, don't really care for the recolored logo on the helmet.

How about double red? Bright red numbers with cardinal red outline?

Hey @oldschoolvikings, I’d love to see you create a set for the Cardinals based on the Desert Cardinal, a species that is actually indigenous to Arizona.

Every time you post an Eagles concept I'm reminded of how great kelly/gray is.

The concept itself is nice, but I’ve never seen a Kelly green Eagles concept that I wouldn’t like better with a darker midnight green. Currently it leans a little too blue, but midnight green is the way to go, IMO.

I think it's the helmet that really draws me into the kelly green.  I always thought the shell was so nice (and I also preferred that wing).  They never quite nailed the jersey.  They went from far too much sleeve striping (and too large of holes) to black trim.  The Cunningham-era black trim was servicable, but it just looks so nice with gray trim.  That throwback concept on the right is nearly* perfect.

 

*I'm not a fan of the white stripe at the bottom of the sleeve.  The early 1980s thick white stripe did not work and I would not emulate it.  Otherwise, (Take my money now meme).

Well, I'm just trying to be a relatively accurate (as possible with the modern jersey cut) with that throwback as I can be.  Obviously, if that were to become the main primary you'd have to adjust a few things.

Admittedly, I didn't think of it as a "throwback" (which I should have considering it's a third...).  Of course, taking that, minus the white stripe, making a white version, and calling them both primaries would be perfection.

I don't love the Patriots' color rush uniform like so many people seem to.  Obviously, I hate the matching pants and jerseys, but also I just think the design is sort of plain. And I don't think basic UCLA stripes look good at all on the Nike template. However, there seems to be some momentum for it, so I thought I'd see if I could warp it a bit to make myself happy.
