Braisher Stripes on Steriods

Several readers emailed me to mention that the Packers' Braisher pant stripes were looking a little larger this pre-season.

After yesterday's game, it sure looks that way.

It's especially noticable when you compare the Packers' stripes with those of the 49ers, as in this photo of Clay Matthews sacking Colin Kaepernick:

What's especially interesting to me is that there seems to be some inconsistency between players.

In some shots, it almost looks like the stripes are overwhelming the pants.

Take a closer look at that last photo - are we seeing last year's pants versus this year's?

I did think that the stripes started looking a bit wider last season, presumably due to the elastic fabric the Packers were using, but not like this. We'll need to keep an eye on it.
