PostSubject: New Ravens Uniforms (2013-2014)   Sat Jun 22 2013, 07:15

I'm really disappointed with Nike.  I ordered a custom White Ravens elite to find a solid white collar all the way around WITHOUT flywire collar.  I sent back and they refunded because it didn't match what was pictured (what the Ravens wore last season).  Now, the nflshop pics are updated with what jersey I received, as well as the other jerseys.

The Ravens collars are no longer two tone (white jersey with black and white collar, purple jersey with purple and black collar, black jersey with purple and black collar); the collars match the jersey color and they don't have the flywire collar.

I'm pretty upset.  The Ravens win a super bowl, and Nike never had white elites available until a year after they change the style.  I'll never own an authentic style like the ones the Ravens wore in the super bowl.

Man that's a real shame, I didn't know the Ravens were dropping the flywire. Perhaps they didn't see any benefit from it.

I have to admit, I was pretty bummed when I saw that they dropped the two-tone collar as well. It's like a pattern! A pattern of sorrow for us jersey collectors haha. As soon as the Ravens win the Super Bowl, they 1) sign a player who's named Elvis, and 2) change something small about their uniform. The last time they won it, their equipment contract went from Nike to Reebok for the following season.

While you do have a point there, the problem is that the Ravens wore their away uniforms in the Super Bowl, and Nike made a very precious few of the away jerseys for retail. So, while in theory we should be able to pick up away jerseys from the 2012-13 season as they're marked down to account for the uniform switch, we won't be able to do so, because they barely made any to begin with!

ahh ok i see the dilemma... not to mention after checking nflshop it doesnt look like they discounted the 2012 jerseys so thats another bummer... so for anyone who wants to patch up an elite, it will be hard to duplicate the super bowl look accurately.

It seems that most teams have changes to the collar this season.the broncos look like they have went from a two tone collar to one solid colour.
I don't think this is fair on fans at all,the jerseys have barely been out a year and nike are making changes already.

Sorry to hear about this. Glad you were able to get your $ back. It's a real shame Nike didn't sell EXACTLY what the players wore on the field at the time...

When did they make white Nike elites during the 2012-2013 season? I've seen not one for sale. Sad

Chargers have done the same thing - got rid of the white in the two-tone collar, and also removed the white from the triple layer on the name only, so it's just powder blue on gold. It does seem strange that quite a few teams seem to be making minor tweaks only one season in to the Nike contract.

I have to say that the collars on the fly wire jerseys took a long time to get used to. They aren't what we were all used to, so it sort of makes sense that some teams are going back to a traditional collar.

I can contribute that the Redskins have made this minor change for their Nike's this fall. The burgundy collar on the white jerseys has been changed to white.

Not sure why Nike and/or the teams decided to do a two-tone collar. Kind of looks a little odd to me. I prefer the solid, one color look.
