  1. I found them on social media from the photo shoot for the new uniforms. These look like they were geared towards the retail for NFL Shop. I’ve also found a number of shots of the new jerseys already in the wild. I’ll post them so we can get a look at the fan jerseys and the different versions. For reference, there are 4 tiers of jerseys. The lowest tier is the Legend which is a cheaper material with sublimated graphics. Nothing is stitched on or printed. 100% sublimated. I do not believe any of the below photos actually show a Legend. The next level and most common is the Game. These are 100% screen printed and have a loose fit. The mid grade option is the Limited which features stitched numbers and logos and a different cut. It has the reflective NFL shield, the different collar, and the seams come to a point on the back. However, the stitching is definitely not at the same level of the authentics. For example, the two tone numbers with the red shadow are basically sublimated onto one single panel which is stitched. There aren’t two separate layers of fabric for the number and the shadow. Also, the way the Falcon is applied is more simplified whereas there are individual stitched components on the bird on the authentic. It’s basically a patch stitched on rather than a custom embroidery. The Vapor Authentic is the closest you will get to an on field jersey. The cut is the same, the stitching is the same, even the cuffs are tightened. Let’s get started: Women’s Game Various styles (L to R: Men’s Game, Women’s Game, Men’s Limited, Men’s Game, Men’s Vapor Authentic, Women’s Game, Men’s Game) Various styles (L to R: Men’s Limited, Men’s Game, Men’s Game, Women’s Game, Women’s Game, Men’s Vapor Authentic, Men’s Game) Various styles (L to R: Men’s Limited, Women’s Game, Men’s Game) Men’s Limited Men’s Vapor Authentic Men’s Game Men’s Game (this is definitely a men’s cut as you can see the size on the jock tag, the women’s style does not say the size on the jock tag but rather “On Field”) Women’s Game Men’s Game Men’s Game Steve Cannon in the Men’s Game Offset in the Men’s Game Men’s Game Men’s Game in both old and new I also found these two photos on social media but I didn’t want to post their faces without permission.

  2. Based off of this photo of a Limited, it sure looks like it’s printed. You can see some shine to the letters whereas the stitched material usually appears duller and pure red. Where is this review you mentioned? I’d be curious to see.
  3. The Rams got a special exemption to wear their throwbacks as much as possible. They tried to distance themselves from the St Louis look and eliminated a lot of the gold from their uniforms (helmet horns and pants) and tried to wear white a lot. There were still small bits of gold on the jerseys. NFL merchandising rules wouldn’t allow them to change their jerseys (hence only changing the helmet and pants) without resetting the 5 year timer for new uniforms (which they didn’t want to do because they are launching their new design this season in conjunction with their new stadium). They also couldn’t simply go to the throwbacks full time because they did not have an away throwback in their wardrobe, so they did not have a full matching home and road. But then it created a weird dynamic where when they had to wear the navy blue set (or had already used their max number of throwback games), it looked absolutely awful. So they applied for an exemption to wear the throwbacks more so they wouldn’t ever have to wear the navy and gold jersey with the mismatched helmet and pants until their new uniform came out. It was a temporary solution and is not the norm. My understanding is that they had to apply for a waiver from the league.
  4. Doesn’t Julio wear Under Armour shoes? That could potentially explain why he didn’t partake in the photo shoot if he has a sponsorship with another sportswear company.
  5. Yes, I understand that. My point was why wouldn’t this new black outline follow the design protocol of the logo and utilize a thicker black outline on the back of the wings and a thinner outline towards the beak and claw? That would make sense and follow the current design rather than slapping a generic outline with a consistent weight which clashes with the white and silver outlines.
  6. I’ll take a guess here and say it’s fake. For the main reason, I think it’s too much of a departure of franchise tradition at this point. Over 50 years wearing red or black lids, only to swap to gray? Don’t see it happening. For the second reason, and one which I think I can point to evidence in the photo, just take a look at the extra black outline and compare it to this: The current logo has different outline stroke weights which are thicker on the left side and get thinner on the right as the bird is in motion. Compare that to the supposed leak, which has an extra consistently weighted black outline. It doesn’t add up. Why would the logo have variable outline thickness in the white and gray outlines but a consistent thickness on the black outline? Not to mention, why would the logo need three different outlines? It doesn’t seem like good design and makes me think it’s fake.
  7. It’s not done in this manner because the NFL is very tight with its properties and that includes ample lead time for manufacturers to produce the new gear and get it into the market, as well as inform sponsors, commercial partners, and TV networks about changes to reflect the new branding. Think of a company like Nike. Imagine how many Todd Gurley and Julio Jones jerseys are going to be in demand in a few weeks time. They need sufficient time to manufacturer and supply their vendors with gear. It’s a different era than the nixed 49ers logo that lasted for a few days before they backtracked on that decision and said they were reverting to the old logo. Think about all the merchandise from pennants bearing the helmet to Bud Light NFL sponsorship pieces you see in your local grocery store. It’s a big industry where things are decided a year or two in advance.
  8. This concept of mine is a blending of eras. It uses the red helmet and black jersey combination of the original 1960s teams. Light gray is used in place of white, reminiscent of the old sets with the gray pants and occasionally gray numbers. There are several combinations available as we saw the team use in the mid 2000s. I used a single stripe design that thins out in the middle, similar to the wing- yet the shape is stillcontained within a traditional stripe shape. This evokes a bit of movement and speed without resorting to odd shapes and lines like we've seen from Nike lately. The stripe is consistent across all applications, similar to the Florida Gators. Take a look at this site I made which allows you to choose your favorite combination: https://andrewwagner.wixsite.com/atlantafalcons2020
