OS Uni Snob Thread

Welcome to the thread where piping is scorned and random stripes will be mocked into submission.

I figured, we don't really have a thread to just randomly talk about uniforms. Sure, there's "Best/Worst" uniform threads. There's "X team got new unis" threads. But if I'm randomly watching a college basketball game and let's say Washington's wearing that god awful black, I don't really have a place to bitch about it.

Also, if you come across any uniform mockups in your internet adventures. I've posted a few awful mockups from UniWatch in OT, but I don't like hijacking that thread with that kind of stuff.

Anyways, to kick off the discussion, I tweeted about these a few days ago, but they've stuck in my head because they're so good. I know people are scared of Nike taking the NFL's license in 2012, and with good reason, but I think they could end up churning out jerseys that look like these uni mockups from UniWatch, and that'd be a good thing because these look excellent.






I'm really hoping that's the kind of direction Nike goes with the NFL license, because those are both really awesome and so much better than what both teams are wearing right now.

So... yeah... discuss those, discuss unis in general, find some mockups we can talk about, or even make your own.

Re: OS Uni Snob Thread

I like the Bills mockup, and I'd be interested to see the white topped version. I've never been a fan of the Seahawks more "modern" digs, and would like them to keep the logos yet go back to the old-school colors, like the Rams.

I've been thinking about working on some concepts for some football teams, so I might end up actually doing that and posting them here.

Also, good call on making a thread.

Re: OS Uni Snob Thread

I'm not a big fan of the neon green and dark blue either, but I like how that mockup keeps the green, which to me is the most annoying part of their colors, to a minimum and actually incorporates it well into the uniform. I know their fans love it, so it's not going away.

What I love about it is that it's a return to the silver helmet and pants. This all-blue look they have going on has to go away and soon. It's terrible.

This is the only mockup I feel compelled to post.




Bow down.

Re: OS Uni Snob Thread

I used that uni combo every single game I played in NCAA 11 when I rolled with LSU for a year in Dynasty before named rosters came out.

Thing of beauty, it was.

That is a good point. I do like the silver on those elements.

Not bad. LSU does better in a white helmet than some other teams do (coughVTcough).

Re: OS Uni Snob Thread

I did a google image search for "NFL Uniform concepts" and found this picture of a Steelers concept that I had read about some years ago but never saw. It was a proposed third jersey for situations when the Steelers are playing on the road in very hot weather and the home team chooses to wear their white jerseys. I think the NFL didn't approve or something. I don't care for it to much. Particularly the sleeve stripes and the outline names.
