When the Chicago Bears take the field in 2019, they’ll be wearing one of four uniform combinations.
The team announced it will roll out four different uniform combinations for its centennial season. We’ll see the traditional navy blue tops and white bottoms which are usually worn at home, the white tops with navy bottoms the team generally rocks on the road, and the alternate orange tops that Akiem Hicks successfully lobbied for in 2018. But the most important takeaway might be the tease of a “new classic” jersey that will be revealed on June 7 during the team’s 100th anniversary celebration.
Sorry, no numbers in the 100’s will be issued for any of the uniform combinations.
Bears history is littered with potential old-school alternatives that could prove to be the inspiration for whatever the new, yet classic look the team will sport this coming season. As a long-time jersey-shopper, I’m going to be not-so-patiently awaiting this one to drop this summer.
During the league’s meetings in Arizona, the Bears hinted a special jersey announcement was coming at some point in 2019. Unfortunately, we are left to wait it out before we see what the final product looks like.
Until then, remember: The Bears have the best uniforms in football.
Best uniform (set) in the NFL? 🤔
