Why is Niners gear so ugly

This shirt is so sick it makes me so hyped for the season already. Just looking at it makes me want to wipe up the toughest spills and juices from white linoleum floors with my own brand of sturdy paper towels!!!!

While I think that some of the gear isn't my style, it's not all that bad. Most of the stuff is pretty copy cat from team to team. They just change colors and logos. Our gear is pretty much what other teams have available. The problem is that there is only one sponsor for the entire league. They can do whatever they want. When it was Nike, Adidas, and Reebok all competing in the league, there was some gear that was pretty good looking and original. Those days seem to be dead.

Thanks Stoney. Yes indeed the fact that there is only one major sportswear manufacturer with an exclusive deal, can definitely contribute to the lack of progressive design. We all know without competition any product can stagnate. I suppose they can print out whatever they want because if you want to fly your teams colors, you're gonna do it on Reeboks flag. You know its kind of scary that the NFL has such a laissez-faire attitude about the designs once a vendor wins the bidding war for the license. That whole philosphy could get out of hand real quick .There are plenty of fringe companies with piles of loot, just itching for a chance to validate themselves as a major player in the american marketplace.




Now that I think about it Pro-Wings probably would put it out there better than Reebok is doing

Guys, this could seriously be an opportunity in the making.

I Heard someone say that what irritates you is often times the thing you were created to fix.

Is there any way that some of you guys, who I definately agree with could get some design idea's together and we could present them?

or do we not no anyone in that arena that could improve this part of our team?

Personally, I would like to get a shirt and hat as well, but not as long as they look like that...

a noob just burned JRG ...
now we sit and wait...

I AM SOOOO sick of this "noob" crap on here. listen to me son. You have been on this site 6 months.6 MONTHS!! I have been reading and posting here for years. I keep going inactive because of all the idiots on here, to be honest with you. I am not calling YOU and idiot, I am just saying the whole concept of "I have posted a bunch, so I know what I am talking about is RETARDED. A monkey could click on this site 700 times a day, it wouldn't make him any smarter. This site is THE BEST rescource for scheming my precious forty niners, but I am about to quit, AGAIN, because of all the morons on here.
oh if we could all just get along in ninerville

Shifter- I agree with you. I come to this site because I want to have legitimate conversations/debates about a team I have have loved my entire life. I was a regular to this site for years before I even registered. I only comment when I feel there is something to add, but I have had other try to rip on me for my number of posts as well. My only guess is that those members are either really young or just really immature. Either way, they are a drag to a site that is otherwise the best fan site of any team of any sport I have seen.
I agree! I am a huge "hat fan" and practically wear them every day! I haven't found ONE niners hat that I've ever liked to buy!!

so true, the only niner gear i spend money on is jerseys. most of their other stuff looks really stupid.

Does anyone know if the Niners have their own design team, or if Reebok is making up all the designs themselves?

And who has final approval on a given design, the teams or the league?



all teams have the same stuff just with their logo and team color on it

That maroon is just awful. It's like the Anti-Niners colors.

BootLegNINER making his own bootleg shirts!
As I get to the end of this thread, I wonder, "why did i read this all?." Maybe I thought this thread would redeem itself in some way. Maybe I thought some niner fan would take up the mantle and strongly defend our colors or bring some coherency to a frivolous debate. Alas, I have read for nothing....
Niner gear does look ugly!!! like a few on here said, only the throw backs jerseys are nice!
