SAN FRANCISCO — The Redskins’ latest uniform redesign, which was unveiled Friday, made it into the preseason preseason top 10.
The red, white and blue look has been a staple for the team for the last decade, but the team will look to build on that momentum with the new uniforms, which feature more details on the front and back.
“The idea behind the new look is to build off the success of last season and not try to replicate that success,” said Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Bruce Allen.
“We’re not trying to recreate last year, we’re not really trying to reinvent the wheel.
We’re trying to build a foundation for success in the future.”
The redesigned uniforms will go on sale next season, and the team plans to unveil its new look at the Pro Bowl.
The new uniforms were developed by the NFL’s design team, which included architects Frank Gehry, Robert Zirkelbach and Jonathan Katz.
The NFL says the uniforms will offer “more than just an aesthetically pleasing design,” which has been the hallmark of the franchise since the 1950s.
They’ll be a departure from the franchise’s current look, which is based on the iconic “blue and gold” color scheme that won it the Super Bowl title in 2013.
The team has yet to make any decisions on how to move forward with the uniform redesign.
“This is our opportunity to give the team a modern, high-performance uniform that has been successful in the NFL for many years,” Allen said.
“In the past, we’ve looked to the past and tried to recreate what happened, but we’re going to look to the future and try to build from that.”
