Give this to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, for good or bad, they have never gone for the norm in NFL uniforms. They continued their sartorial legacy this week as they unveiled their newest duds to mixed reviews from NFL fans and media. In a public statement, Bucs co-chair Edward Glazer called the uniforms “the culmination of more than two years of research” and close work with Nike.
“Today marks the culmination of more than two years of research and planning to bring the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into a new and exciting era of our history,” Glazer said. “We worked closely with our partners at Nike to design a uniform that would set the standard for both design and functionality. The result is a sleek, modern design that honors our championship past while also establishing a new, bolder identity moving forward.”
The Bucs release says the “base uniform color” has been “energized with richer pewter, juxtaposed with a brighter, more vibrant shade of ‘Buccaneer Red.'” You can see that ‘Buccaneer Red’ below.
It also refers to a “Bay Orange” — the primary trim you see above — that is an “homage” to previous Bucs unis (aka, the “Creamsicle”).
Pro Image Sports has a store in the Tampa Bay market at the Westfield Brandon shopping centre that will be retailing the Bucs new jerseys as soon as they are available. For more information, check them out at facebook.com/ProImageSportsBrandon.
