These uniforms aren’t drastically different from the old ones, with the most noticeable change being the absence of a black border around the lettering and numbering — you can view last year’s uniform here to compare. I think while it’s a subtle change, it does make the jerseys a bit cleaner.
Now we can only hope for some “smokey gray” jerseys next.
