Argyle

Right before the 1991-92 basketball season, UNC unveiled a change to the men’s basketball uniforms. Designed by UNC alum Alexander Julian, they featured an argyle pattern down the sides. After the initial “outrage” the pattern has become a signature part of the uniform.

Now 20+ years later, UNC Nike is adding the argyle pattern to the football uniform. Yes, the football uniforms are being updated again. They recently were switched to this…what, two years ago?

An #OURBLUE teaser video came out on twitter last week, showing designers waxing poetic about Carolina blue and the football uniform (with a blurry model in the background), then for some reason at a Kenny Chesney concert in Greensboro, some UNC helmets were brought on stage with an argyle down the middle. The rest is supposed to be revealed sometime today. The Oregon-ization of college football uniforms continues. Multi-colors, chrome helmets, UNC adding argyle, NC State has helmets with wolf eyes on the back, Duke has all black. Even the basketball uniforms are changing with special “march madness” uniforms from Adidas.

 

Will it ever stop, yo, I dont know.
