Jets uniforms will look so much better in 2020

Our uniforms will look good as soon as we win in them. 

However our old unis were better by far. We should've gone 80s if anything.

This. To both points.

Our old uniforms were dated and stale. Call it a wash.

Agree about the old uniforms, but that is no excuse to spend 5 years coming up with worse uniforms...

They're green and white, they are unmistakably the Jets, and it's really no big deal.  In the end, we went with green helmets and fewer stripes.  It's a hybrid of the 80's look at the 00's look.  I don't love them but I like them very much. 

As for the design, it's not easy for Nike to be creative when you're named after a piece of transportation equipment.  And that nod to aerodynamics or flight that was there in our 80s logo is still there, it just moved to the jersey and pants stripes.  That airplane wing or airplane wedge has returned all over the team's design language after 22 years.

In the earlier 80s the green looked darker, as time went on they lightened them.  I liked the darker green but I do love the new green.  I actually like our new uniforms other than the unnecessary addition of black.  Bring back white facemask, bring back 80s logo on the helmet, get rid of "New York" on front and the unis would be almost perfect.

Agreed, but those are a lot of tweaks. The "New York" across the chest was done I'm sure by some Madison Ave agency, which probably doesnt get the fanbase.

Even without the tweaks(and they will tweak through the years) I still like them.

These unis suck compared to our classics, End of discussion.

I disagree. I think it was time for a change. The classic Jets unis are awesome but losing makes you resent them. I like the new look especially the black ones.

I don't associate losing with the only unis we've won a title with. I associate the 98 season, 09-10, CMart, Chrebet, Vinny, Revis, Abe, Namath those guys with it.

Are you ALWAYS this much...yourself? Is there ever a time when you just go, "Ah, I think I'm gonna take the afternoon off, see what that's like."

Wow those look great, with the new helmet rule after next season maybe we can see this as an alt helmet and some throwback uni combos?
I like mine.

I know my jerseys and that is a customized official elite jersey! That is a thing of beauty my friend, how does the fit compare to the Nike game jerseys?

I like how you spotted this, I do like the new jersey designs I enjoy the Gotham Green and love the helmet. Yes our old jerseys had a lot of history but we will create more history with these ones !

Huh?  It’s our original logo without an oval.  It’s fine.

It's so strange.  In general, I don't like our new uniforms but there are some angles where I think they look okay.  This is one of them.

Agreed.  That's why I carefully choose photos that have the really good angles :)

I posted this in another thread, our new airplane wedge symbol is a direct copy of 2/3 of the 80's logo.  Cut, paste, rotate a few degrees, it's the same triangle.

The new wedge looks like a stealth fighter (no vertical stabilizer) where the old wedge looked like a Concorde which was cutting-edge at the time.  Or the new wedge looks like a speedy vapor trail.  Or perhaps a wing.  Either way, I think it's a simple/good way to illustrate "fast flight" on an NFL uniform. 

And if you think about it, our uniforms were basic-NFL design parallel stripes and never conveyed anything "Jets" or "flight" or "speed" about them except for that wedge helmet logo in the 80's.  So I think that's why its important and why it inspired the new Nike design.  All our past uniforms were just different version of "stripes".  Our new uniform is about "flight".

True fact:  Our new uniforms look 67.2% better in the opponent's end zone than at mid-field.  

And the contrast when they are on top of the opposing QBs uniform provides a 94.1% boost to likeability. 

It's really all situational.

So the uniforms will look much better because we are unreasonably positive?

The fact that that anyone gets as heated about the jerseys as some in this thread do is a hilarious.

Hot Take: All of our jerseys have sucked

I'll still rock any one of them.

The current clip art logo is an abomination.

The wordmark Jets logo starting in '78 was my favorite.

At the end of the day It's really just the best of a bad situation.

Discounts or no discounts, I draw the line at $10,000 for a Swarovski crystal helmet.  $7,499 is far more palatable.

All black or all white. Green pants and jersey are trash.

My friends and I love all the variations of the new uniforms.  Granted, my friends and I are the demographic that Nike were targeting with the re-design.

Exactly the point lol    

I'm getting long in the tooth myself these days. :) 

I prefer the old ones too, but the new one's are nowhere near the atrocity people make it out to be. My 12 year old son and his Jets fan friend love them. I'm fairly certain they were more in mind than us.

Well I was 11 when I fell in love with the old ones during the super bowl so I guess that makes sense.
