Reebok was trash (their sideline hats were trash, their modern jerseys were trash), this was a long-time coming.

Yep, I mentioned how putting designs aside how much Nike has improved the jersey/pants and how Reebok and Adidas? before them did little to change it. Also, weren't you the one to say how the cheapest (100.00) jerseys will be silicone instead of screen and printed on and how much better it is. Is the silicone softer and more flexible?

So far only ones I have seen are the Panthers but 9erempire mentioned how Seattle's will be 12 (for 12th man) but haven't seen any pictures yet. I thought every team was going to have a slogan though. Either they haven't picked them yet or they have the option not to.

Unfortunately I believe it will still look like crap when it gets saturated. From this picture it still looks like the pants will be that ugly mustard.

9ers is semper fidelis I believe.

edit: I would've liked "who's got it better than us? NOBODY!" Better though. That is really our slogan. I'm not sure what Semper Fi has to do with the 49ers, other than it has an S and an F.

Yeah, it's pretty unique, isn't it!?

Silicon-polymer based fabric bonding stretches with the fabric (without damaging/stretching the silicon or the jersey fabric in the process), Nike also uses it on their soccer jerseys. -It's almost like having thin little pieces of flexible/durable rubber molded into the fabric (which will withstand a s**t ton more of machine washing/dry-cleaning compared to easily-fading screen-printed numbers).

Thanks for the info.
I mentioned early a lot of fans are like there are no changes... what's the difference and nobody besides Seattle wanted new unis so Nike wasn't going to change any team that didn't want it changed. Like someone said it's up to the teams not Nike. So anyways, yeah the designs are pretty much the same but most of the change is for the players. I mentioned the list before but will do it again if anyone didn't see it...

1. they are water resistant... will stay dryer during rain/snow games and should hold up better against sweat.
2. they are 27% lighter but are stronger at the same time
3. They are cooler because they have mesh in key areas of the jersey and on the side of the pants where the stripes are
4. They flywire collar keeps the collar tight preventing the shoulder pad from coming out if after being tackled
5. They have built in padding in the pants around the hip area... good idea since most players don't wear those side hip protectors.

So that's a lot of change... Reebok and Adidas before them have made little effort and have made few to no changes in the uniform in the past 10-15 years or whatever it is

Here are a few videos where I got that info from.

Gonna have to wait until preseason to truly gauge how it will look; but sometimes I almost feel it's a 'lighting' mirage, cause I remember back in the day during 240 progressive scan days there'd be times (back when the pants were full khaki) where you'd see a 'mustard' shade in appearance.

'89 Pats @ 49ers (at Stanford)



'90 Giants @ 49ers (MNF)

Aye I've never used ebay can you message people and try to buy their stuff in person? I found a jacket and the dude lives in the same city so I'm not trying to pay for shipping or anything.

It's kind of a case-by-case type of deal. Some sellers are willing, but I also know a few sellers that are skeptical of getting robbed.

It's always worth a shot to ask -- Let em' know you're willing to meet at the sellers convenience in the day-time at a place of his/her choice.

Yeah, what's up with the sweat on those pants?

Real is for people wanting to support the team and pay for the players to play for the team we root for.

Fake is for fake fans. They will root for another team and don't feel bad for spending money on a fake jersey because they can root for another team and buy another team's jersey to pretend to be a fan.

I am invested emotionally and financially for the 49ers.

Sorry, because I don't feel it's right to pay knockoffs. These people are ripping people off. What if you made a product and I made a fake, that's essentially ripping you off.

I'm not promoting buying fake jerseys, I'm promoting not paying $250 for a jersey. Personally, I'll be sitting at home or at a bar, rooting for the 49ers... without wearing any of the NFL's overpriced "gear". You do what you want to, to me it's an obvious scam.
