Giants uniform: gray vs. white pants

Josh in the City : 8/22/2011 12:07 pm
I know this is kind of random but I've been thinking about it for a while. Does anyone else truly dislike the gray pants as part of the Giants uniform? To me, it ruins the whole look. I think the jerseys and helmet are great but the pants just look awful. Why not go back to the white pants which looked much better? Am I alone in this sentiment?

Gray is better.

I don't care if they wear their pajamas out there as long as they win.
While it pains me greatly to agree

I dislike the gray pants. Go with white or some type of silver pants.

Definitely Gray

And don't bring back those 80's jersey's.
It's amazing to me  
kmed : 8/22/2011 12:12 pm : link
how so many care about the freaking color of their pants. It's fucking football, whatever shows more blood works.
I like the gray pants...  
okiegiant : 8/22/2011 12:14 pm : link
What I'd really like is for them to go back to the Giants logo on the helmet. If they do this then they'd have to go back to the white pants.
i prefer the whites

what do you think of these for the aways?

I like the grey better than white, always have.

Gray fits the old (current) unis. White better fit the 80's jerseys.

Josh in the City : 8/22/2011 12:22 pm : link
gray fit the current uni's better than white? The jersey has white in it which would make the white pants go very well.

And the thin stripe with both white and blue jersey is a nice improvement. Classic, and unique in today's NFL
hated the greys initially...  
Dan in the Springs : 8/22/2011 12:27 pm : link
but I have to admit they've grown on me. Still not my favorite but they don't drive me crazy like they used to.
Hate the Grey Pants

I would love it if the Giants went back to the Mid to late 80's jerseys and pants!
Steve in South Jersey : 8/22/2011 12:29 pm : link
gray is okay, but white is better.
I prefer gray.  
BUgiantfan : 8/22/2011 12:30 pm : link
White's not bad. If I elaborate any more, I'll have to hand in my man card and I worked so hard to get it back.
Blue pants with the away uni's would be awesome.  
arcarsenal : 8/22/2011 12:31 pm : link

And I agree, white would look much better with the home uni's. Not a fan of the dead grey.
Don't like the Gray  
Nomad Crow on the Madison : 8/22/2011 12:32 pm : link
I would go with white.
How bout' these monstrosities?  
x meadowlander : 8/22/2011 12:32 pm : link
White pants would really mess up the road uniforms.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/22/2011 12:36 pm : link
That stripe is enormous.

But since we're the subject, I like the idea of the white pants on the homes.

Giants uniform, but gray vs. white pants does not make much of a difference to me. You can barely tell that they are gray and they match the face mask. What annoys me is these new jerseys with the stretchy material and no red triangle behind the NFL Shield. I also don't like the skinny striped pants, I can now live with it for the white jerseys, but there was no reason to add it to the blues. Also the new stretchy pants that we ware that makes the striping on some pants look much larger is a problem. Really what I don't like is changes and inconsistency, from 1980-1999 the uniform was pretty much exactly the same, but since 2000 it feels like there is a change every year or two.
Not possible for me to care less about their pants.  
Giants11737 : 8/22/2011 12:52 pm : link
Helmets are another issue. I'm very very glad they replaced the "Giants" title with "NY" logo back in 2000.
Come on, the 1980s jerseys are classic  
dpinzow : 8/22/2011 12:53 pm : link
The Giants better wear the 80's home uniform for one home game this a throwback to 1986 (25 years since the first SB win)
Josh in the City : 8/22/2011 1:05 pm : link
Unfortunately, according to the Giants, there won't be an alternate uniform until they switch to Nike uniforms (from Reebok) next season.
I wouldn't mind if they darkened up the blue like the  
Motley Blue : 8/22/2011 1:11 pm : link
jerseys in the 80's, but keep the gray pants.
Motley, I like that idea as well. Just a we bit darker.  
Andy in Halifax : 8/22/2011 1:12 pm : link
I'd also probably prefer white pants and change the red on the away jersey to blue and we're all set.
Like the Grey Hate the White

the gray. I do hate the away regardless of pants color and I would not want to see them return to Giants on the helmet.
Ed A. : 8/22/2011 2:25 pm : link
the white. Additionally, loved that they went back to the NY logo on the helmet. Do not like the thin stripes on the pants.
I actually prefer the gray pants,  
Section331 : 8/22/2011 2:26 pm : link
at least with the blue jerseys. I hate the gray pants with the road jerseys, though. Go back to blue.
I would prefer white, especially with the blue home jerseys

I know it doesn't matter either way  
McGIANTS : 8/22/2011 2:31 pm : link
but I prefer the white pants over the gray. Let Dallas wear gray/silver. The Giants are red, white and blue.
Dont exactly care  
AnotherGiantsFan : 8/22/2011 2:45 pm : link
but i'd definitely pick the white over the grey. I also like Blue Ballers picture with the blue pants for the away.
Switch to the white pants

with current uniforms, but also loved the ALL whites road uniform from the 80s.
Not a fair comparison of photos  
SMitch2 : 8/22/2011 3:53 pm : link
When you show the grey pants with white tops vs. traditional white pants with blue tops. The home blues always look better than away white tops.

You need to show the old white & white road uni's when comparing them to the modern road uni's.

I like the modern grey and white road uni's much better than the old style, although the modern homes are slightly worse than the old ones. I do miss the darker blue that we used to have.

old school

But I'd prefer white pants with the blue jerseys.
