The ever-so-controversial Chicago Bears orange jerseys are officially back.
After it was announced back in March that the jerseys would be making a comeback after having been out of commission since 2012, they were officially released today.
Bears chairman George H. McCaskey said, “I think it’s a great look and it’s a modern-day look that’s reminiscent of our past.”
Here’s the new version...
And here’s the one from 2005-2009...
The Bears actually wore an orange jersey and white pants combination in the 1930’s, a combination which was brought back in 2003 in a Thanksgiving matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. After making a few tweaks to the uniform, including changing the numbers from navy blue to white and using the team’s current helmet instead of their helmet with the white ‘C’, the garb that is remembered by most Bears fans was conceived.
The concern by some was that the orange jerseys would be replacing the team’s Monsters of the Midway 1940’s throwback jerseys as their alternate uniforms, but they’ll still wear that classic navy set at a yet to be determined date.
What do you think about the new uniforms? Would you prefer it if they kept their old throwback jerseys as their only alternate? Sound off your thoughts in the comments below.
