The square white back on the away jersey is different for sure. The front of the home jersey looks the same.

I heard that the jerseys for this season were supposed to be basically the same as last year. They were just going to be slapping the New Era patch on them.

I am worried about blue side panels on the away.

I liked the blue name bar on the away better.

I will wait to see the whole thing.

You could be right but it looks to be a bit larger and a slightly different font of "BLUE BOMBERS" if you ask me.

Oh ya, you're probably right. I'm sure there will be subtle differences but it looks very similar in any event.

Agreed. It still feels like brand new even after 3 seasons.

Note how we have had winning records and made the playoffs each year since we switched to the new royals.

Don't mess this up!!

My criticism is pretty minor, I think they mostly nailed the last set.

I would not have done the shoulder yoke on the away and just kept it solid white, but it does not keep me awake at night.

Just no stupid side panels or weird striping on the pants.

Those were only a signature alternate. Yes, it was a massive train wreck but it wasn't like they were a home jersey for 3 years. They were used for 1 game. The changes they made to the full time jerseys in 2012 were totally awful.

What sucks about those the most is that I actually loved the concept they were going for (digital camo), but the end result was truly awful, with shades of blue looking like teals and purples to dominate the uniform.

With bigger "pixilation" and only core blue shades, plus even a hint of gold in the main part of the uniform, they may have been able to do something good with it.

Missed opportunity and resulted in a horrible jersey. I bet if they tried it with my suggestions with the new royal as the baseline blue instead of the navy, it has potential to look sweet.

Lol... yes, it is marketing.  Merch sales are driven by new jersey designs and alternate jerseys... how many different jersey's did the Jets wear *in game* this year?  4?  Plus the pregame skate specials...

I remember seeing a piece on the "Power Rangers" where they were totally transparent about merch sales.  Basically, they changed the on screen suits every season to make sure die hard fans got a new set of toys each year... adding on a marking, changing a breastplate, putting a symbol on the helmet, tiny changes, but all for merch sales.

Have to wonder about the mfg changes, does a company like New Era feel that they can make more off the contract than Adidas did because of the new design sales?  Do they bid more for the rights because they perceive a better return on investment?

I do wonder if the previous design is owned by Adidas and somewhat protected, thus forcing New Era to modify the jersey in some small way to claim ownership.  Not sure how that all works.

There was an apparent leak of the Argos jerseys online today. They have gone with the light blue colour for their numbers on both the dark and white jerseys. If the leak was accurate, there were no additional stripes on the jerseys. If this is true, then no one would buy a "clean" jersey as it would just be solid white or solid blue.

My take:

BC: Big win for them. Jerseys are cleaner, and the helmet is fantastic.
Calgary: Ditching the black helmet is a win. I also don't get Calgary's fascination with black. Their special lounge is the Red and White Club. They should stick to their roots, with a touch of silver/grey perhaps.
Edmonton: Fail. The two sleeve stripes that go nowhere are bland and ugly. The last Reebok set they had were much better.
Saskatchewan: They'll look great in last place.
Winnipeg: The best look in sports, still.
Toronto: Nothing says "what do we do when we have complete apathy in our market" more than a jersey that is a monotone single colour. That will cause a rush to the store!
Ottawa: I didn't see the pant. If they ditched the hashtag on their pants, then it's a win.
Hamilton: Looked good before. Looks good now.
Montreal: Very curious to see how their look will show on TV. Their previous look needed the scrap heap, so this is already a win for them.

Hate to chime in here, but the Bombers online store is honestly pathetic. Their new arrivals are full of items that have been available for at least a year. Would love to see what kind of new lids New Era has available, the ones on the BC Lions webstore look great, but the Bombers have consistently been behind on this for years. Even their Twitter hasn?t been active in like two years. It really should be so easy.

I can't disagree with you. I'd like to order more stuff online, as I don't live in Winnipeg and can't make it to the store. For a few years, the online store has been woeful, and even the availability of merchandise in the store has decreased in quality. It's great for jerseys, but only somewhat adequate for other items.

100% agree!  The Bomber Store used to be awesome, but now I have a hard time spending any money there.  A few years ago, if I went in the store I was guaranteed to be spending $50.  Now I hardly spend a dime.  Their "sales" suck, clearance merch isn't priced most of the time (or priced at full retail).  I am not sure what the issue is there, but it needs to be fixed.

I do know that the offseason isn't a great time. The Jets Gear stores are the same. I know that they're trying to get rid of the old Adidas stuff, but they sure aren't pricing it to sell. I also note that the sizes that are remaining are "scat back" sized, not "linebacker" or "offensive lineman" sized.

The online store site has a huge banner about New Era, yet the only thing that's actually available are blank jerseys. I'm sure there's some old stock New Era hats, too. I would think that if you're new to the jersey market, and (besides hats) are new to the CFL, this would be a great time to launch a clothing line for each team.

Winnipeg isn't the only group that suffers from this. When the Diversity is Strength tees came out last year, I wanted to get one. I wasn't going to be in Winnipeg any time soon, and since they weren't really team-branded, I thought I could go down to the Eskimos store and pick one up. I showed up on a Saturday, about 30 minutes before they were scheduled to close. The place was completely shuttered. The place was completely locked up and there was no sign that any staff member had been there recently.

Is this year's New Era gold the same gold as last year?  In that Chris Matthews pic above it looks more like the gold from the dark-blue 2012 jerseys.  Maybe it's just my eyes...

Who was the player often on the sidelines last couple of years who was always in the Bombers bucket hat (maybe grey?)?  Can't remember the player.  But I want a BB bucket hat this year and the online store doesn't have any.

The brick & mortar store always has waaay more selection, so I'll just wait till a game day to pop in, I'm always there early anyhow.

Yeah, if you look on the store site, the selection looks horrible. You have to go there in person to see all the stuff they truly have. Sucks for outta towners who want merch. This is something we should be promoting and can do a better job of.

I am not a fan of black for black's sake on a uniform. I generally prefer brighter colours. Black and red is kinda tired and boring. I'm glad that neither our CFL or NHL teams use black.

Did the ad photoshop the helmet to make it black and white or is this going to be the actual colour of the helmet?

I lived in Winnipeg all my life and this year I moved to Ottawa for work. I was at 2 training camps in Winnipeg this year and I'm excited to see a good batch of players.

Also, some are saying the Bomber store sucks. Don't know why. They have a great selection of gear and apparel. A little overpriced but what isn't nowadays...

I do however take issue with the marry go round branding and coming out with new jerseys every other year. Please CFL sign a long term contract with one of the apparel companies and call it a day. To expect us to buy new jerseys every other year is pretty crass..

No, they're saying the online Bomber store sucks.  The B&M store at IGF is quite well stocked.  And, yes, stuff sure is expensive, but like you said, par for the course, and the fans will pay.  Now, do they have me a bucket hat for this year??  Preferably under 50 bucks.  Wink

Well, at least there's almost no change in style/colors in '19 vs '18 for WPG.  I'm pretty sure the teams line up the jersey companies in a bidding war as often as they can in order to extract the most $$ from them.  They say this is New Era's first year making jerseys (most just hats before), so we'll see if they even know how to do it right.

Was at the Bomber Store this weekend, and notice that the new white jerseys are the exact same as the Adidas jerseys.  The on-field version has the blue extending down below the name-bar, but the fan jerseys it's up higher.  I may be in the minority, but I will NEVER buy one of these if it is not the same (or similar) to the on-field version. 

Also, I have a newborn son and there is literally nothing there to buy for him.  Everything is 12 months or older, which is ridiculous.  Go to Saskatchewan and they have stuff everywhere.  We even asked if they were just sold out and the manager just said no and walked away.  I have had a bone to pick with the store for a while, but they sure don't seem like they really care.

I had the same issue last year. I just bought a 12 month one and figured it'd be good for two years.

Congrats on your new son!  My daughter is almost 3 months now, and I was thinking of checking out the B. Store at the IGF home opener, but now I know not to bother.

With the passing of father's day recently, congrats to all new (and old) parents on the forum.  Bringing up the next gen of Bomber fans!

You need lots of outfits to deal with the "explosion" plays... If you're not sure what that is, you will find out soon enough  Cheesy

Hehe... ya, I think need to get Richie Hall in here to clean up those explosion plays for me.  They're causing team Tecno some real problems.
