New York Jets modernization-concept

Well, I think it's a pretty common thought on these boards that the Jets' jersey is a very bad fit for the latest templates, and has been for a while. I was just trying to think a little bit out of the box here... how to keep the basic feel of the classic, with the contrasting sleeves and all. I also wanted to dump that drab green. The logo incorporates the original cartoony jet logo, and the jersey wordmark is from the 70s/80s helmet. Anyway, let me know what you think.

I like the concept. This would give them a distinctive jersey and the striping matches the helmet.

One thing I noticed is that your TV numbers are backwards in three of the four looks. By backwards I mean that the green jersey's number is 54 but on the shoulders it would have to read 45. Same with 20 and 87.

I think you can overlook that. Anyways, great concept but I love the gang green as a color for the Jets.

Oh, damn... you're right. Makes me wonder how often I do that!

Edit - OK... fixed it.

The bottom stripes on the sleeves throws the whole thing off. I think if you simply kept the sleeves the same color as the jersey, and left only the stripes, it would be perfect.

Well, I was trying to keep the idea from the current jersey that the sleeves contrast the jersey... to me, that's kind of the signature of the Jets uniform.

Any Jets logo that's an actual plane should be futuristic-looking. Ironically, the example that came to my mind was the XB-70 Valkyrie...

...a design that flew in the early '60s.

Maybe some detail to the jet? It looks like a hybrid of two different aircraft. Or maybe sweep back the wings a bit?

I agree that's a pretty derpy looking jet, but it isn't mine. I was just trying to incorporate this logo...
