Browns New Uniforms Unveiled

Here they are.



They aren’t too bad. I like them.

Biggest change is the inclusion of a large CLEVELAND across the chest numbers and BROWNS down the side of the pants.

9 combinations in all.


Nike kept them pretty traditional with the sleeve stripes but added some new elements with the wordmarks and number outlines.

NFL Uniform Concepts – Make Up Days – Lions, Giants, and Bears

I skipped a few days so I’m here with 3 concepts to make up some time.


First up, the Detroit Lions.

The jersey is pretty simple, it just has 2 huge shoulder logos (similar to the late 90’s Patriots). The logo is just the head of the lion from the helmet logo. I limited the black except for outlining the lion heads and number to make them easier to see.

The facemask also went back to blue.

NFL Uniform Concepts Day 14 – San Francisco 49ers

Another team with a classic look today. Here’s a brief rundown of what I’ve changed to the 49ers uniforms

-Removed black outline on helmet logo, gave logo a white outline

-Removed sleeve stripes (that were always cut off thanks to the jersey pattern) and moved gold and white stripes to the shoulders

-Moved numbers to the sleeves

-Added gold and white stripes on the socks

49ers home 49ers away


The main reason for moving the stripes to the shoulders was the sleeve stripes have basically become nonexistent on the current uniforms thanks to the jersey cut and the way players prefer them.

Here they are in Montana’s days

and today, 1 full stripe and and inch of the second one. Not even enough room for the third stripe.

NFL Uniform Concepts Day 13 – Indianapolis Colts

The Colts are today’s uniform concept. They have a classic look with some nice block letters, shoulder stripes, 1 pair of pants and 2 jerseys. It’s been essentially the same for a long time.

I kept the look pretty tame but did make a lot of minor tweaks.

First, the helmet went from white to blue, with white facemask. I tried to replicated a metallic matte finish on the helmet.

The shoulder stripes are gone in favor of the Colt’s horseshoe logo with the number in the middle. The font of the numbers is also changed to be the same as the Colts wordmark logo.

I added stripes back on the socks, something the Colts had about 10 years ago or so.

I also gave them blue pants, something that had about 20 years or more ago.

NFL Uniform Concepts Day 12 – San Diego Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles

I missed a blog for these yesterday so I have two for today.

First up, the Chargers.

The chargers have ALWAYS had the lightning bolt on the shoulders. So to be different, I had to change it up. They are still on the shoulders, but this time they go horizontal and also act as a trim for the top of the jersey to be a different color.

Helmets went from white to powder blue as well. Many teams have white helmets, none that I could think of have a powder blue helmet currently.

Next, its the Eagles.

Went back to the kelly green that everyone seems to like so much. I also added grey to the color scheme.

Kind of a throwback look with a modern design.

Should have a new set for tomorrow.

NFL Uniform Concepts Day 10 – St. Louis Rams

The Rams are the next team I decided to make a uniform for.

I didn’t do too much to their uniforms. The helmet logo is one of the best but since I wanted to changed it a little, I added a texture pattern to it and gave it a slight shadow around the horn. I also gave the helmet a matte finish.

The gold was changed to more of a caramel gold/yellow color. It’s not quite the yellow of their old uniforms, a little orangier, but I think it works.

Other than that, the design is similar. I kept the contrasting colored shoulder/sleeve area like the current ones but made the gold stripe a horn as well. It’s tough to see from this angle, but you can see the tip of the horn comes around right above the cuff of the sleeve.

I like the helmet, but I can see why people wouldn’t.

Here is the helmet minus the texture.

NFL Uniform Concepts Day 9 – Carolina Panthers

The Panthers got new logo’s recently but haven’t changed uniforms since becoming a team. Their uniforms are pretty nice but like every team I will have to change it up a bit.

Like the Browns concept, I got a little happy with all the combos between pants and jerseys.

One thing I did for this set was make the helmet have a color shift like the Jaguars did a few years back. I also ditched the silver all together.

I kept the striping very thin on these and utilized them as kind of an outline.

NFL Uniform Concepts Day 7 – Miami Dolphins

Week 1 of this is capped off with the Miami Dolphins. They just got new uniforms last year, but here’s my concept anyway.

I took the circle outline on the helmet logo and used it as a trim to separate the jersey torso from the shoulders. I wanted to add some orange since the current uniform doesn’t really have a lot of orange in it.
