You can't please everyone. But I ain't gonna fret over collar width or stripe movement. I may actually love the changes when I get used to the new look.
IMO I think some people fear and immediately hate change. Its like a new CD from your favorite band. Sometimes you gotta give it a few pay throughs to digg it.

Default Re: Nike: Outfitters for the NFL and your Houston Texans

the uniforms are exactly the same, when it comes to brand identity, the width of as collar and some accents arent going to affect that..

as for the "red-orange" crowd, compare the myers and andre pics..



its the combination of lighting and camera quality that produces that red-orange look.... myers photo is a camera phone..

I don't really care about the width of the stripes but a man's number should be worn proudly on his chest, and not be hanging around his midsection. That's just a sorry design.

I like the new jerseys already. I like the fat collar look. I think it's going to stand out more when watching the games..especially on the defense...

I still dont understand how Reebok is restricted from selling gear before their contract expired.

http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...k-jets-apparel

Quote:
NEW YORK -- Running for a loss, Reebok has scrapped its effort to sell New York Jets Tim Tebow apparel, agreeing to rid stores of thousands of jerseys and T-shirts it stamped with the quarterback's name after he was traded from the Denver Broncos to the Jets last month.

The terms of a settlement with Nike were disclosed Tuesday in papers filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan that had been signed a day earlier. It was not clear if any money changed hands.


Tebow
Beaverton, Ore.-based Nike Inc. sued Reebok International Ltd. two weeks ago, saying the rival apparel maker was trying to squeeze the most out of the end of its 10-year NFL apparel licensing deal by stamping Tebow's name on jerseys and T-shirts even though Nike was about to begin a five-year NFL contract of its own.

Judge Kevin Castel immediately blocked Reebok from selling 6,000 Tebow-Jets jerseys and 25,000 T-shirts it was distributing to stores while he heard evidence in the case. After a daylong hearing last week, he left his restraining order in place and announced that he believed Nike would ultimately prevail in its claims.

Reebok had claimed it had permission to sell the jerseys and T-shirts of up to five players who switched teams during March, including Tebow.

Castel on Monday signed a settlement judgment requiring Reebok to buy back from retailers any Tebow apparel it manufactured after its licensing deal with NFL Players Inc. to use players' names and numbers expired at the end of February. Its NFL licensing deal for players' apparel expired at the end of March.

The judgment also blocked Canton, Mass.-based Reebok, an Adidas AG subsidiary, from selling or manufacturing any unauthorized Tebow-Jets merchandise, including what it created in March. The judge then closed the legal case.

Nike spokeswoman Mary Remuzzi said the company was "pleased to have reached a mutually agreeable resolution."

Reebok also said in a statement that it was "pleased to have reached a mutually agreeable resolution."

Default Re: Nike: Outfitters for the NFL and your Houston Texans

I'm all but pulling this out of my ass, because I can't find the article I read when all this first came to light.

IIRC, while Reebok had a contract that allowed them to produce new clothing until 31 Mar, there was a deadline as to when they could bring new designs to market and that deadline was a day or two before the trade to the Jets became official. I imagine that also within that contract, there's something that said Reebok couldn't put a player's name on another team's jersey unless that player has signed a contract with the new team.

I just know, that I will be on the lookout for the Reebok jerseys.

I have all 3 colors of the AJ jersey. I want another white one though, mine is pretty worn. I would like to have all three Foster, OD, Watt, and Demeco.

As far as the Nike jerseys If I do buy one, I'll buy a white Dre, and blue Watt jersey.

The new jerseys are ugly with a capital UGLY. The collar looks disproportional and it forces the numbers to the midsection. Oddly enough, they look more like oriental rip offs than some of the oriental rip offs do these days.

That being said, Nike makes better products and in the long run this will probably be better for the players. Still...if those jerseys were prom dates they would be bespectacled fat chicks.

Saw a guy last night with a med gray jersey with white letters and red stitching, a # 80. I've never seen one like it before. He left before I could ask him if it was one of Nike's or not. It was really cool!

Those are "Game" jerseys. You need to look at the "Elite" jerseys (Currently it's #80 or custom; no other players yet, AFAIK) if you want that pimp collar.

$100 vs $250 ($150 vs $300 for custom jerseys)

Don't like the Nike jerseys... The stripes are weird, the numbers and the "Texans" are too low, right on the belly, and the obvious collars... a bit too big/wide, but I can live with that.
