Proposed new Oakland Raiders uniforms are pretty sweet


Proposed uniform changes for NFL teams is nothing new. Every week, some sort of idea seems to pop up – from radical redesigns to Star Wars themed tweaks to subtle changes. Most are interesting, but fairly laughable.

One new batch, however is worth taking a look at. Jesse Alkire, a freelance graphic artist / designer from Chicago, recently put his spin on each NFL team’s uniform, offering a creative touch to all 32 sets of duds. And most of them are pretty darn cool.

As for the Oakland Raiders, he didn’t make drastic changes. He explained why on his web site:

“Another strong, proud uniform tradition remains virtually untouched. Solid-color socks give one of the NFL’s most traditional uniforms a slick, modern feel. Alternate “Black Hole” uniform an option for marquee matchups, such as playoff games or rivalry games.”

Here’s what he came up with:

Pretty sharp. Who do we need to call to get this done?

    i wish u guys wud stop messing with perfection. leave our uniforms alone. leave our uniforms alone. u can do whatever you like to the other teams, but leave the raider uniforms the way they have been for over 50 years. and i will not be the last one to echo this sentiment.

    I love this “new” look cuz it stays true to what we all know and could you imagine our rivals looking across at the black hole and an entire force of black on the field!! im all for this slight but needed change

  • Rickey

    We are the only team that has never changed our colors or uniforms. I think the only other thing we havent ever changed that needs in my opinion the full wieght of the NATION is a new stadium preferably in Oakland! It would go a long way with atracting some talented players to want to play here. Were the only team that shares with a baseball team and thats cool build it for both but, its bullshit nfl politics. I think its time for the nfl (all) to grow up quit playing Tagliabue but hurt politics..Mr Goodell.. Be your own man and make this happen. Unless hes not his own man….

    I like them, especially the dark “black hole” look. These are not major changes…we’ve made minor tweaks to the unis over the years. Not as though we’re changing the colors… Do it Mark!!

    Maybe the uniforms should change, critics who say no change, well we want their record to change – the right change/s can be good. Change is inevitable.

    The all-black uniform is boring, tired & childish attempt at machismo, while gray numerals on black background doesn’t work (readability), kind of a no-brainer, The gray pants work (Alkire knows pants). And thankfully he (Nike) hasn’t messed with Raiders logo yet…yet. It may be best in the biz, but once they do, and they will, the Raiders won’t be the Raiders anymore.

  • Ruben

    Why would you change a uniform that is the best looking uniform in the NFL to date? Its football not a damn fashion show. Leave the damn things alone. And bring back the Reebok jerseys, the Nike jerseys suck!!!

  • raiderarlin

    Get your stinking filthy paws off of our uniforms! If it’s not broke, don’t fix it! Damn it!

    That might be just the uniform they can use in 2018 when they move back to Los Angeles…

  • Dave

    Please. No shiny uniforms. I think they should do stuff like the Ducks do.

  • Ash

    for all the nay sayers if you look at the direction the nfl is going we should all be rejoicing that the changes were so slight, cuz it could be a lot worse. I do believe the silver needs to be a little more silver and a little less grey but we might be up for an update, cuz an update is not a change, we are known for our logo and that stays untouched so if it happens im all for it.

  • supa cuz

    add some chrome to the dome style it with some black shine be fine be mean with the razor barb wire stripe v neck and double stripes barbs wire around arms and legs yea!

  • william

    I love my Silver and Black just the way they are Go Raiders !!! Raider for Life !
