At a star-studded event in Manhattan on Thursday night, the New York Jets revealed their new uniforms. This wardrobe change marks the first time that the Jets will don new uniforms in over two decades, since 1998.
The Jets revealed three jerseys and three pants that are all interchangeable and all come in white, green, and black.
In addition, the Jets have debuted a new helmet that replaces the old green on white one that they used to wear. This time, the Jets will wear a green helmet with white lettering featuring their logo.
The franchise also debuted a slightly-altered logo that modernizes and makes the old version sleeker.
The uniform redesign was carried out by Nike, whose signature touch for the uniform was to introduce a shade of green known as “Gotham Green” that they help will be the Jets’ defining color.
The new jerseys, pants, and helmets were modeled at the event by current Jets players. The list of models included quarterback Sam Darnold, safety Jamal Adams, and wide receiver Quincy Enunwa.
Darnold was candid in his evaluation of the new threads, stating that “If we don’t play well, the uniforms are going to look crummy. If we play well, they’re going to look awesome.”
The uniform redesign is part of the Jets’ new invigorated vibe. Several roster changes and a new head coach have the team looking very different heading into the 2019 season.
