New Orleans Saints set

Recommended Posts

When you've posted a lot of concepts, there's a decent chance there are a lot you'd like to revisit. Back before cellphones were smart, I'd posted a Saints third jersey, which was largely replacing the FDL on each sleeve with a striping pattern-logo hybrid, using a different block font, and adding purple and green. Those who commented largely felt it was a rather lazy effort at an alt, so I came back with a new pants/helmet stripe, and a green jersey with purple shoulders, as I was going for a Mardi Gras vibe. I occasionally post some of my concepts at Aussie rules forum Big Footy, and occasionally whatever reactions I get here have a funny tendency to elicit the opposite reaction down under. Dialup was acting up earlier, so I figured I'd take it and turn it into a full concept this time.

Home and Away

The aforementioned logo/stripe hybrid? Naturally, strings of Mardi Gras beads, largely modeled after the stripes on the Saints' original jerseys. Confession time...I was originally gonna use purple and green in the main set, but decided against it in the end, which is largely why the helmet/pants stripe looks like it does.

Aint no rule against using a different stripe IIRC...and as you can see, an argyle-like pattern all over the jersey, an idea I had for a Pelicans concept I've yet to really work on. I was going to put it on the pants as well, but then it seemed like overkill.

The beads thing is an interesting idea but I grew up in New Orleans and didn't get what was happening on the sleeves until I read your explanation. To me, beads on the uni could work but as a collar treatment maybe. Not feeling the stripe pattern but that's a matter of personal preference.

Love the addition of the shield logo and wordmark on the jerseys; would like to see a rear helmet bumper with the wordmark also. The pattern on the alt jersey could work on the homes and aways too.

Same here. I had no idea what I was looking at. I think that the helmet and pant striping could use some gold. There's just too much black in there for my liking.

Beads only work in the collar area, I think. The addition of purple and green is cool, the argyle styling is not, in my opinion.

The alternate pants stripes look a lot like the old Jaguar pants

Oh my God, I love that third.

And the home one is good too.
