I hope there’s no throwback involved at all. Hate that 80’s logo which basically represented garbage. If they’re going for something new, I hope it’s brand new.

This.

New York is the fashion capital of the country and if they can't built a world-class state of the art uniform it's a joke.  All my teams-  Jets, Rangers, Yankees-  have classic uniforms and I haven't seen a new/modern uniform in all my years of fandom.  I want something new and slick, no throwback crap.

But of course, the Jets will pull a Mets and design something hideous.  Or, worse, roll out a stupid play on the 80s uniform just in time for us to have a #14 under center.

Are they using these as alternates, like the Titans unis or the Color Guard or whatever the **** they do on TNF? Or will these be a primary?

Im guessing its gonna be the throwback instead of the blue Titans and the alternate to replace the color rush.

No way in hell they change the regular game jersey.

I am all for this!  Make it simple, make it clean and make it green.  If the Adams pix are the exact ones, sign me up.

Hell yeah-- couldn't have said it better myself.

It really surprises me how many people consider the current/Namath uniforms classic.  Just because they were around in the past doesn't mean they are classic.

There are not many subjects I can speak with a somewhat educated stance, but uniform design is one of them.  I worked for a sporting goods retailer for like 8 years, about half in the print area where we screen printed all sorts of uniforms for various sports.

The Jets current uniform layout is clunky and almost primarily used with uniforms that have 3 colors.  That has always bothered. 

This is just my personal preference, but I don't like the white helmets either.  Everyone has white helmets.

I likenour current uniforms I also like the 80’s uniforms those are the ones I grew up watching and became a fan of this team I wouldn’t mind the jets sticking with the current uniform and occasionally using the 80’s throwback as an alternate

They are our original uniforms from 1964 and were the ones we wore during our only glory days be they the '68, '98, or '09 eras.

Changing the uniforms is unnecessary.  The best uniforms in the NFL are old school.  Whose modern uniforms do you admire?  Seahawks?  Broncos?  Bucs?  All the new ones are ugly.  And teams that try to go modern then go running back to their classics.  This is a mistake.

Kinda stupid of the Jets to say that so early in the game. Who is going to buy a jersey now, knowing this is the last year they will wear it? 

Leave it to the Jets to get the hottest QB prospect in the last 5+ years and cripple his jersey sales by announcing a new design while he's holding out.

What a SOJ move.

It's the shoulders. They have that odd cut (I guess it's to make shoulders look bigger,) I don't need any help there, they look like something Bea Arthur would wear in the golden girls

Do we use the NYJ logo? I think NY would be fine and the J seems a bit like overkill.

I'll tell you what (and I'm prepared to get buttfumbled into oblivion), I wouldn't mind if they added a third color to the mix. Not black (representative of the failed Coslet/Kotite regimes) or silver/gray (too Eagles), I'd go with orange, which not only could represent fire coming from our so-called Jets, but also would be a New York color as worn by the Knicks, Mets, and Islanders. And also Darnold's hair. 

Yeah, yeah, I know. But I'd actually like an alternative orange hat with their (hopefully) brand new logo. I like the Giants' unis with the white shirts and red lettering. Some teams do fun stuff with that secondary color (like when the Seahawks go crazy with their green). I think it could be cool. 

And I say this as a fan of our current uniforms. If (when) they change it up, I hope it's something really new - not the 80s logo or the alternative NY or NYJ they've had for a while now. Something genuinely original.

Orange? That's so drastic. I think it's a crazy idea but I'll get crazy with you, how bout red instead?

I think green and red is too Christmas-y, and god knows it's never Christmas for Jets' fans. 

And like I said, orange already has a place as a NY sports team color. 

And I'd start with just a little. Maybe in the logo and a taste on the jerseys or pants. Maintaining a mostly green + white thing. Then once it settles in, they can do crazier stuff with it.

I don't disagree.  New doesn't have to mean excessive.  New can still be clean and simple.  I don't like any of those uniforms.

However, I don't think the Jets current are a clean design.  Lots of unecessary stuff.  Just my opinion.

I don't understand the green helmet hate. Is it because you think it's ugly, it's not classic enough, bad memories of the 80s, what?

Actually of the few images that stir a positive emotion in me it's the 80s uniform of walker McNeil and klecko 

I had a walker print hanging in my bedroom

Not my personal cup of tea with the orange, but I like the general concept.  That's why I don't like the White helmets personally.  Half the leauge has White helmets.  

Whatever can set them apart as a truly distinct brand, while not going all whacky like the Bucs and Jags, I'm all for it.
