    The old ones are 44, 48, 95 on the RGB scale (Based on a photograph)

    While the new one is 29, 42, 74 on the RGB scale which is darker. I think the material itself has changed, and that effects the color as well.

    So if you look at the provide pictures, look at the area the sunlight is hitting and make your own call.

    They are darker, but at the same time shinier.

    They are colser to Midnight blue than Navy blue now. There is alot more red in the color, giving it an almost purple/black coloring. They look AWESOME in the sunlight on an HDtv or in person.

    How about the powder blue alternates? Anybody know if that is the same shade as our throwbacks?

    I don't get that. They look close to the collegiate blue we had last season.

    They sure do.

    It wasn't until I saw both new uni styles this preseason in HD that I said "Holy Crap! That looks nice!"

    :yes:

    I love the way the new uniforms translate to TV. They also do make the player look bigger, or broader would be more correct.
