    NFL and more importantly Texans jerseys and uniforms announced and unveiled tomorrow (4/2). Some apparel are out now for sale but the new updated jerseys won't be on sale until about 2 weeks after the announcement. I'm looking forward to it as I did not like the Reebok jerseys at all (sizing, quality, etc.). So far, New Era has done a good job with the hats and the Nike clothing is exceptionally better (IMO of course - due to fitting and material DRI-FIT). As of now, it's expected that there won't be a dramatic change in uniforms but gradually over the next 2-3 years they may be. As long as they don't go all out like they do for the Oregon Ducks, I'll be all for a bit of a change. And no, the renderings that were done last year (that were all outlandish and cartoony) were not official or done by Nike, just fan renderings.

    So far picked up:

    and yes i'll admit that I'm a bit bias towards Nike, but as far as fitment and material goes on the tee shirts, I haven't heard of many people who prefer the Reebok stuff.

    Unveiled:

    Can't wait to see the jerseys. Don't expect too much of a change in the total look but i think they'll look more modern and more badass.

    Same. I don't expect any bold changes, but the materials should be quite different as well as the fit of the jerseys. I could never get with the Reebok's as they were GIGANTIC as far as sizing, and inconsistent as well.

    Take the N out, and it becomes "Houston Kows". Seems more appropriate. Too bad we don't have a stupid catch phrase like "Who Dat" or "Who Dey"...

    No those weren't rendered by Nike, those were a mock up not even made up by Nike. First time anyone is seeing them is tomorrow.

    Yeah they leaked, but no images to the public yet. Only images that have popped up are

    and as I said, no dramatic changes for the first couple years as the NFL requested that, but minor gradual changes will occur. Better quality, materials, and sizing is all I ask. But so far, the tees/shorts are already better, IMO of course.

    A great place to follow the unveiling is HERE.

    ESPN's Uni Watch blog, which has a twitter feed widget displaying updates and images snapped at the event.

    The quilted jackets look SLAMMIN! Very 1980s. In all seriousness, I really REALLY like the quilted jackets.
