CFL uniforms: an observation

This design sucks from head to toe!

That wouldn't be a terrible look had the pattern been confined to the shoulders, but they went overboard in applying it to the helmets and numbers too, which combined with the unnecessary gradient facemask brings this uniform to clownsuit status. Judging from Winnipeg's leak, it's only going to get more eye-searing from here.

I think I'm the only one who loves Saskatchewan's jersey. It's something new and I just love the design.

BTW my brother and dad are going to that Bomber game so hopefully I can get some pics of in-game jerseys

Unveiled:

Here is the CFL.ca article and a couple more pics on twitter.

My 2 cents:

-Helmet is amazing

-Hate the "Argonaughts" written in the pants stripe

-Actually like the number font. It works for a 3rd only though, not if it were to be a primary

-The gradient on the shoulders is unnecessary. It feels like an extra element just to have it there (much like the 'rider's facemask)

-The logo on the gloves is cool. I've always liked that idea.

-This feels more like a hockey jersey with the logo on the front.

-The Reebok word mark on the back of the socks (look at the 3rd pic here) just sticks out like a sore thumb to me.

***Edit found a video too. Right Here***

Spot on with it looking like a hockey jersey but also because of the yoke, imo. Welcome back, the 90s. Overall, though, I do like this as a one-off alt

I'm definitely not a fan of the Argos' or the Riders' Signature Jerseys so far. I like the Argos' new jersey better than what the Roughriders unveiled, though that isn't saying much. The idea of a letter 'A' on the front is definitely something you don't see everyday on a football jersey. The white Argonauts helmet is quite nice. Also, I have a question, do these Signature Jerseys replace both Toronto's and the Riders' Throwback alternates? Will they still wear them for at least a game? Saskatchewan in my opinion has to at least wear the white throwback for a game this year. How can you not like the Riders' home and road throwbacks. Those are very nice jerseys and this is coming from a BC Lions fan.
