The uniforms look a bit simplified, with tiger stripes at the shoulders on a single, solid uniform, with the name “Paul Brown” inscribed on the inside of the collar, the famous owner / founder of the team. Uniforms also have less shadow effect on the numbers, opting instead for a solid border around the numbers. In all, they are good, if the design is legitimate.
Although the stripes have a new look, many have compared the colors to the Bears uniforms, which share a similar orange hue. Some fans were plagued by the Bengals’ “Color Rush” variant of the uniform, which was mostly a solid white with shoulder stripes similar to their primary uniforms, but the singular dominant color worked better than the one. color of the Bengals epaulettes.
Nike’s attempts to redesign the uniforms have polarized at best and epic failures at worst, with the Seahawks and Chargers at the top of the list for good designs and the Buccaneers and Jaguars at the back.
Teams are allowed to change the uniform design once every five years, so expect more teams to wear Nike uniforms in the coming seasons, with six teams receiving a new look ahead of the 2020 season. .
