March 2nd brings the second concept. For today, it’s the Oakland Raiders.
The Raider’s have by far the most simple and plain looking uniforms in all of the NFL. No logos on the jersey, no stripes, no number outline. Just solid numbers and text on a solid color jersey. There was a lot of room to mess around with this, but I kept it pretty basic and only made a few changes.
The most obvious is the Raider shield on the front of the jersey with the number in the middle. I also added a white stripe going across the shoulder pads and down the arm/sleeves (like Texas A&M). This is a single solid stripe as opposed to A&M’s double stripes.
The other change was the facemask. From grey to black. I’m a fan of contrasting facemask/helmet shells, so this was an easy choice.
The other minor change was no white on the socks. This part of the uniform doesn’t mean too much considering every player has their own take on how they want to wear their socks. Mostly white, no white, whatever.
The inspiration for this uniform was the Packers throwbacks, with the big circle with the number in the middle. I liked how this was different and something no other team uses so I modified for use with the Raiders.
That’s it for today, tomorrow brings a new concept.
