The Cleveland Browns, who introduced a controversial set of uniforms just five years ago which attempted to “modernize” their classic and simplistic look, have decided to go back to their roots with a new set of uniforms which return back to the team’s past.
The Browns announced their new duds on Wednesday in a post on social media which revealed a new set of uniforms that closely resemble the sets worn before the previous change was made in 2015.
“We wanted to get back to the roots of who the Browns are,” explainned executive vice president and owner JW Johnson “We’ve heard it from our fans and from our players. We needed to get back to our roots.”
So, that’s what the team has done in presenting four new uniforms that have gotten rid of many of the more newfangled elements of the last jerseys and have added classic touches like the team’s three stripe logo.
The team will primarily wear a brown jersey with white pants at home and a white jersey with brown pants on the road. Also revealed was an alternate all-white road jersey as well as an all-brown “Color Rush” jersey which will be worn at some home games.
The team is expected to debut their new uniforms this fall.
