Do want the Texans Vapors! Will the logo be on there also?

They need to release better color ways for the fitted and snap backs when they make them. Only good fitted I liked was the 'Skins one....

There's nothing wrong with changing up the unis after a period of time like the Pats or the Chargers or the Bucs.
The Texans uni are relatively new, I can understand wanting them to be the same for a while.

I like when the throw backs look totally different from the regular uniforms, like the old Packers, Jets...

Since throwbacks are part of the NFL now.. let's roll with it.

There's really not much of a difference between this & today's uniform.


The sleeves are an undergarment that most players don't (& probably won't) wear anyway.

But they've NEVER worn the Red Top / Blue Pants combo. (I've wanted to see it for awhile). So that, and the star on the pants are the biggest changes I see.

That will be the Texans sideline fitted, which the team will wear, so they'll be more colorways. As far as snapback goes, death to them, I hope none are made lol.

Ill buy that Texans hat though, i need a simple navy one, but Ill get one in Navy/Red to match my Rockets one.

Default Re: Texans Nike Vapor Jet Pro Bowl Gloves

I don't think they're changing the uniform that much. I'ts more of a format change rather than color changes. If they want to update the materials and make the unis have a modern feel I'm good with that because they aren't changing the colors or the logos. Red top/Blue bottom would be a wicked combo for regular games...not just breaking out red for Battle Red...and with the lost white helmet? Hell yeah. The gloves and cleats are ok, nothing special. It's not like they're going to pinstripes (the sure sign a team is dead in this town) and cartoonish bull or pinstripes and completely different color scheme than they had before.

I agree with this. I'm not advocating for a uni change right now. I just don't agree with the folks that are against a uni change at any point in time.

One thing I wouldn't mind now, though, is a scheme change. For instance, all Steel Blue for home games, all Liberty White for road games (including the helmets), and maybe continue the Battle Red jerseys for a game or two a season (but use them with the blue pants).

Keep the color schemes the way they are but change Battle Red to blue pants instead of white, looks much better IMO

I think if the under shirt looked like that more players would wear it because it goes with the uniform...

I really really don't like the flat bill type hats that most of the kids wear these days. My son has a few of them and I won't let him wear it forward, allowing himself to look thug-ish. Those are the only hats he can wear backwards. That's the only way they look somewhat normal.

WTF happened to the good ol ball cap style with the adjustable snap in the back?

You do realize that all New Era caps come new with a flat bill, right? It's up to the wearer to decide how to wear it. I have an Astros New Era cap, and I loathe the flat bill - I must curve it.]

As far as the Nike contract goes, I don't think there will be any drastic uni changes. The NFL and its teams control all that. The true change will be in materials and the manufacturer logo.

And? I don't recall mentioning the New Era junk

The flat bill caps have the high top as well. Bend it all you want, it'll still stand 4 inches off the top of your head.

Default Re: Texans Nike Vapor Jet Pro Bowl Gloves

in the pros, each team decides how/what they're uniform will look like...not the apparel company.

our uniforms will look the same, the only difference will be how the jersey itself is put together (material, texture, stitching).

This concerns me as well. Do the baseball players on the field wear the same design, or are they custom with a more smaller top?

Here is your traditional baseball cap:

The Ball cap fits snuggly to your head

I would say that it is about 50-50 normal crown vs low crown. I own two different Astros caps and Corpus Christi Hooks cap, they are all low crown New Era on the field. Astros low crowns can be hard to get ahold of because the team is not that popular.
