Bring Back Classic Jets Uniforms

  1. 1. Would you ditch the current Jets uniform set for an updated version of the classic look?

    • Yes - We look like a semi-pro team
    • No - Keep the current set

These new uniforms are F-U-G-L-Y glad to see mostly everyone regained their sense of mind. 

There is a bias for the new (relative term, old can become new again). Since they're not new anymore, whatever luster there was is gone. Unbelievably people are nostalgic for the 80s uniform which basically representing 20 years or horribleness.

If the they haven't already done so, Jets need to and must makes appropriate moves to ditch the current uniform set and return to classic Jets look. I'd like to see where the fan base currently s

Different from you other post ... I do like these better .. one strip on the legs is enough ... the version with two stripes on the legs, shoulders and helmet was seizure inducing.

Agreed....   I wouldn't mind seeing the old Titan Throw backs once a tear as well.

Judging by results JN is coming around the dumping these terrible unis. When I posted a thread last year about this, people pushed back mightily.

A year ago, we were coming off of 6-2.  This year, 2-6.  Jets fans are angry about everything.  Especially now that our annual April Super Bowl is over.  

I spent 2 years lobbying that we should keep white helmets and our (then) existing look; I was outnumbered 100:1 with everyone saying that we needed "green helmets" and "that cool 90's look". 

They got what they asked for.

The old uniforms were fine…until Nike took over and ruined the shade of green and the shoulder stripes.

The only things that needed updating were the helmet + the logo and our general main logo.

• Old Uniforms with our current colors, and a simple NY on the metallic green helmets (no double stripes on top) is all that was ever needed.

• Our main logo also needs updating. Take away the Jets + Football and add an actual Jet with an NY for T shirts Hats etc.

None of this is rocket science.

Like this is any different than we have now, LOL.

It's stupid renderings like these all over Twitter and Instagram that got the Jets and Nike thinking this awful 80's look from when the team was awful is what anyone wanted.

Actually you spent about that amount of time claiming that the Jets were going to be sticking with the white helmets, and then became the biggest proponent of this new look that was widely unpopular (and remains so) with the majority of the people who post here. 

But yeah, revisionist history is fun, too.

We can't change for 3 years not worth worrying about. I do think teams with head coaches should be allowed to change uniforms if they so desire.

If we could prove the uniforms offend a group, we can change.

Example: WFT

There is another technicality where if a team changes ownership they can change uniform. I'm sure if they pushed for it Woddy regaining ownership could be used as an excuse to change the uniforms.

I'm not a proponent of this new look, simply resigned to the fact that its the best Nike could do with the parameters of a green helmet, black as an accent color, and a mandate to take design direction from the 1990's.  Compared with the other Nike modern uniforms they've created over the last 8 years, ours is actually one of the best, it's restrained, it looks fine, it could have been a lot worse.

The angst hinges around a football on the helmet logo (it's been there for 45 years of our existence) and stripes (every Jets uniform has had them).  The complaining is childish.  They wanted a modern uniform with an 80's retro vibe and they got it.  It's not great, its not awful, not much different than any uniform we've ever had.

No matter how many times you try and claim the new uni's look like the classic 80's/90's uniforms they look nothing alike and the 80/90's were simply the best Jets uniforms to date.  The classic egg logo looks dumb and lazy while the new uniforms icon looks even more dumb and lazy if that's even possible.

And no matter how many times you try and claim the new uni's don't look like the classic 80s/90s uniforms, they do.  At the game, in the stadium, same vibe, green helmets, no center stripe, black facemasks, green/white jerseys/pants/socks, black accents.  Hold your phone away from your face, squint your eyes, they're giving off the same look.

And those 80s/90s uniforms were as bland a it gets.  My mother could have designed those things, as basic as they come, there were high schools in 1985 that looked better than we did.  Nike took that 80s/90s vibe and updated the stripes and font.  That's it.   The new Jets uni's are a refresh of the 80s/90s uni's, exactly what you asked for.

The green helmet works rather nicely with the all-whites, if the Jets bring them back as throwbacks it'll look good.

How about the classic legacy jersey with the same green helmet they have now with a white face mask and the 1980's helmet logo ??? That would be sharp and it would represent all eras.  Legacy, 80's remod and contemporary

That a no for me. Helmet ( other than the ridiculous black) is the worst part about them.

Until they repeal the one helmet rule a sticker change is the only option.  Nothing wrong with using the old 80s/90s logo.  That’s where they came up with the new stripes from anyway.

Woody might be the smartest owner in NFL from profit margin perspective. Imagine the sales surge when they bring back the classics in the new shade of green in a couple years.

All those Pat Leahy missed kicks in the Shea Stadium rain.  All those Ken O'Brien tap dances.  Why anyone wanted those horrible old uniforms back is beyond me.

It's not bad.  The Eagles have had green helmets forever and they pull it off.
