I wish that they didn't go with the shiny/plastic looking letters/numbers, though. I'd like it better with more a matte finish. That would fit with the old-school theme.

I also think this is just a phase. Some day, we'll go back to the throwbacks...


I get it. I agree with you on the plastic numbers AR. A matte finish would be much better. They could also do away with the gradient too.

I think full color matte finish on the blue's would make it pop more too. The gradient takes a little away from the power of the yellow with the blue.

Same for the Blue uni. It should be Blue over Yellow. Without the Yellow pants, it just looks like a color rush uni to me.


I agree with the yellow pants argument with both blue and bone jerseys. But I've been fighting the issue of "which pants look better with which jersey" ever since the STL colors ditched the gold pants.

I wasn't a fan of the Millennium Blue and New Century Gold unis, but I didn't think they looked that bad with the gold pants. Once those were gone, I thought it looked terrible.

So while I still think the yellow pants would look better on the new unis, I can no longer work up any energy to worry about it. The Rams don't pay any attention to what I think looks good anyway, so it doesn't do me any good to complain.

I kinda liked the gold pants too. Also, the first year in those, they had a gold side panel on the jersey that looked better than after they removed it. I do think they looked sharper than our new uni.

I have a 2001 authentic home Warner jersey (I think it's a 2001, not sure anymore). That jersey, complete with gold side panels, was always my favorite Warner jersey. I never understood why they removed the gold side panels.

After reading through this thread it appears our team has never really had a consistant traditional uniform. To many changes. The only constant was the helmet horn (for the most part).
However for a period of time they did have the best one ,, imo. Just not now.

I like those 2000 uniforms too. Those were great togs and I loved the side gold panels too. I don't know why they ever went away from those. The decisions this franchise makes are so freaking puzzling. :evil2: :evil2: :evil2: :evil2: :evil2: :evil2:

Yeah to above. Another thing to point out: the new uniforms are not replacing the Ferigamos. They are replacing the Blueberries. Those were the official uniforms. The blue Jersey was only worn twice since they have been back In LA I think.

I don't remember caring about the uniforms that much when they changed in 2000. I was too hyped about the GSOT. But that shade of yellow/gold was atrocious.

Is the consensus that we like it now?

I always liked the gold as part of the uniform. I would have rather they stayed with the classic blue-yellow colors but was okay with the changes. Of course, the dome had terrible lighting but I don't think it was a problem at the time of the changes. I started noticing the uniform colors starting to look real drab probably around 2010 or so. The other thing about the gold, as a collector, gold can be a real difficult color to print/reproduce and I saw it with many of the collectible and fan paraphernalia available during the St Louis era. Some stuff looked really bad; the gold would print too dark and there would be little contrast between that and the blue. I have pillows that look like crap among other things. Gold didn't seem to print very well on fabric and some other stuff. Just an observation.
I think the uniform in those pics of Faulk up above look real nice.

IMO, there is no better uni than the Ferragamo's (home and away) and I was not thrilled when they made the change in St louis. I had to "get used" to them but NEVER liked them better than the Gammo's!!! I did get a Warner jersey with the Gold side panel that I only wore like one time. Other than that, I really didn't have the desire to buy merch like I did with the B+Y's. The color combo just didn't "pop" like the B+Y's under the dingy dome lighting. I got lots of gifts with the B+G colors but they just didn't give me the same feeling as before.

I think if they would have neutered the helmet horn like they did now, it would have been just as big of an outrage as now. I remember saying the only thing that resembled Rams was the Helmet horn so at least there was that. Even Georgia knew not mess with the helmet horn!

I will also say that seeing them next to our new uni's, the Martz uni doesn't look as bad now. lol
