    Pro Combat Concept Jersey

    A night with no homework and a lot of creative juices flowing got me to thinking about what the football team could sport if they were ever chosen to wear a Pro Combat Jersey from Nike.

    For this concept, I decided to go with a more unknown (but still very good looking) jersey rather then one that was worn by a good football team here at Iowa State. Nike tends to pull their inspiration from what looks good then fill in some good bull crap to why the alumni should care.

    The uniform that I picked to imitate (imitate being used lightly) was the 1956 home uniform. The helmet was loosely inspired by the 1975 helmet.



    I used the 1956 uniform very loosely as an inspiration for the pro combat, using a lot of modern elements of the current football identity. The result turned out to be this:



    On the current cardinal helmets the main focus is on the yellow STATE overlapping the I. On this Pro Combat, I decided to move the STATE focus to the jersey and allow the I to stand alone on the helmet. The I also take the place of the I-State on the pants. The sleeves are located on the undershirt. This is becoming popular for Nike due to the shrinking size of sleeves on jerseys and football players wearing a longer sleeve undershirt more often. This effect is shown by this Oregon State jersey:

    I also went ahead and made the undershirt. Nike tends to put a team slogan on the chest of the shirt so they can sell it to the fans, so I put the usual cyclONE nation on the chest of this undershirt with a "hidden" cyclone in the background.


    And of course a Pro Combat set would not be complete without the logo flashing palms. I did not want to be like all the other schools, and figured that the ALL IN slogan was simple enough to fit on the gloves.


    I will close up the post with a picture of the undershirt and the helmets close up. Sorry for the lengthy post, but i hope you enjoy. Let me know what you all think about the jersey and I'll try to change it to see how it looks. Thank you for taking the time to look this over and GO CYCLONES!!

    I like how the jerseys just say "State." Helmets look cool too.

    Re: Pro Combat Concept Jersey

    nice except Nike usually messes with or adds colors that aren't a part of the school's normal scheme (i think the OSU jersey is a throwback, not a pro combat). that being said, i like the design

    Re: Pro Combat Concept Jersey

    I love the "Take Cover" slogan. Do we have that somewhere on our current unis or was that your inspiration?

    Nice looking unis. I love the gloves with the ALL IN slogan. I can just see James White running in a big TD and throwing his hands up to the crowd. That would be a sight. Nice job!

    I didn't change the colors because Rhoads would never go for a change of colors with his "blue collar" football team. Also, the OSU jerseys were Procombats that were very heavily based on the team's 1967 jersey.

    I came up with that myself. I was wondering how long it would take someone to notice that. Just a little touch as Nike usually puts a little slogan on the inside collar of the jerseys.

    Re: Pro Combat Concept Jersey

    i was a little bored and thought i'd give it a shot. I remember someone mentioning one time that a uniform based off of the one Jack Trice wore would be cool.

    i mess up the logo a on the helmet, i'm horrible with perspective, but you get the general idea.
