I honestly think the contrasting stitching is to combat counterfeit jerseys.

Just so you guys know, Matt Wilhelm (one of the broadcasters) played in the NFL. It's still hilarious hearing him talk about football uniforms though.

Wasn't he a punter or a kicker? (haven't done a search yet)

He was a linebacker for the Steelers.

The extended (and extra bold) sleeve stripes do look pretty nice.

The pants devastate this uniform. Simple stripes, this wouldn't be bad at all. Those pants? It's like Jacksonville's helmet... Takes what would be a 4 to 5 star design down to a 0.5 star...

I like the Jags helmet. At least it's something new/different....it at least looks "fresh". The Browns word mark down the side of the pants looks VERY minor league. The whole uniform does. It looks outdated.

From the waist up, these aren't awful, they're not by any stretch of the imagination good, but they're OK.

The pants though... boy those things really are approaching Jags helmet level of look ruining terribleness.

Wilhelm played for the chargers the most. The Ohio State

That's a really good point. A lot of things Nike has been including in uniforms have to do with that, IMO.

You can't be serious. The Jags' helmet is the ugliest uniform element in the history of sports.

Maybe it's the lighting but that brown doesn't look good to me. Almost looks like a dark gray.

There's your Gunmetal Gray :upside:

Wow, Browns....just............wow

Why couldn't the Chinese use contrasting stitching?

In terms of nfl uniform power rankings i'd rank these just slightly above Patriots and Ravens and just below Broncos and Eagles.

Another Seattle-esque nike uniform there's a lot to like here but as a whole its not all that.

Oddly enough at the unveiling they wore orange socks with the brown pants, but in the gallery they're wearing brown socks with the brown pants. What's up with that?

Also, hopefully the monochrome focus of the gallery isn't foreboding of much because teams with a lot of combos usually present them in monochrome in initial promos because it's easier to show off all of the colors that way. At least I think.

The pants are crap. Debating whether to keep following this team.

Are you serious?

The sense of the uniforms being the team is just short of Yankees-level. Everything else looked "Browns-esque" until the words on the pants.

Jeez, you'd have thought a damn nuke went off the way some of you reacted to those pants.

I am quite happy that the helmets aren't flower pot matte orange.
