Curious why the different stripes from the gray pants compared to the red pants

 

I think my thought process might be hard to explain but I'll try... The stripes on the gray pants, as well as both jerseys, is thick blue and red, separated by thin white... Like the color pattern from the logo. On the red pants, that didn't translate directly, so I went with thick white and thick blue, and separated the blue of the stripe and the red of the pants with the same thin white.

Please keep posting these, I really love all of your experiments and unique takes.

I too saw an odd bronze-y color on my work computer, but now at home, both editions look equally grey.

 

I think that an old-bronze type color could actually suit this concept even better than silver.

So, over in the "2019 NFL Changes" thread, there was a short discussion of where the Carolina Panthers should go with their uniforms... seems there's some rumors of changes on the horizon.  I'm of the opinion that they really made a mess of things this past year in terms of their combinations. They dropped what is easily their best uniform combo (Silver/black/silver/black) for a monochrome look (always a poor choice for any NFL team) and somehow managed to pull off 9 different looks, according to gridiron-uniforms.com, none of them especially good. Apparently, there is some push from at least some fans to drop the silver entirely... go with a black/blue combination with, presumably, a black helmet.  IMO, this would be a pretty crappy idea, this past year has proved they really can't be trusted with that many black uniform options. Anyway, the always reasonable @Gothamite mentioned that, in his opinion, not only shouldn't they drop the silver, they probably need to drop the white, with the exception of the necessary white road jersey.  That sounded interesting to me... as a less is more experiment.

 

Anyway, here is my attempt at a (relatively) white-less Carolina Panthers' uniform.  I dusted off an older concept of mine and reworked it to remove the white elements. With the exception of the white road jersey and white sock halves, the only white is in the logo details and the swooshes.  I honestly think they only need the one pair of silver pants, but I reluctantly added a black pants option, although I'd put them in what I'd call "Saints probation", meaning they should have the black pants yanked off them if they (like New Orleans) continue to abuse the privilege.

I like the addition of red on your Jets concept. It kind of gives it a throwback NJ Devils vibe.

I just realized this is obsolete now, as it's basically the Jets' new uniforms

This might be my 50th Cleveland Browns concept.  And they're all very similar.

 

Here i'm pulling from multiple existing Browns' uniforms.  Home sleeve stripe is from the current color rush uniform... road sleeve stripe is from the classic. Helmet, white socks, and white pants are classic, orange pants from the 80's, browns pants from the color rush.  The only thing I pulled from the current (non-color rush) uniform is the "Cleveland" jersey mark, although I shrunk it a bit.

 

I'm pretty happy with it.

Needs white in the sleeve stripes of the brown jersey and the middle stripe of the brown pants.

Since the Jets stole my design for the Panthers, I decided to rework it...

Thoughts appreciated.

You should see how this design would play for the Jets. :)

A lot of people complain about the Bengals current uniform being less of a sports uniform for a tiger-themed football team, and more of a costume. I would agree, and most of my Bengal concepts (found elsewhere in this thread) tend towards simplifying the Bengals look. However, the thought occurred to me... what if we went in the other direction?  A full-on tiger embrace?  And...

I always thought that the bengals could have orange pants that match their helmet, however I like this jersey design minus the chest logo.

Hmm.  Too busy,  But, as I'm looking at this, I'm curious how it would look if you drew a straight line across from underarm to underarm, leaving the panel  above with stripes and the panel below black with the numbers.  And remove the tiger head.

I would have the stripes stop at the end of the collar or the line through the collar. Although this does look pretty cool.

I really like how this turned out. It reminds of the that throwback Bears uniform everyone seems to love with the stripes on the shoulder. My question with this one is would they have to change their helmet? Would that be stripe overload???
