Not gonna lie, those new throwback uniforms for the San Francisco 49ers are pretty slick. Sure, the red and black ones espoused all sorts of awesomeness only a 90s kid like yours truly could appreciate (well, one who listened to a bunch of metal and punk bands), especially when red and black are my favorite colors, but it really didn’t feel like a 49ers jersey. Now, white with that cool shadow number, nothing says 90s, throwback, and awesomeness like that.
Except I was hoping for red jersey on white pants, the original home uniforms. Instead I’m getting the sleek all white duds, which while pretty snazzy, leave me a bit empty. I’m not sure when the 49ers will roll these jerseys out, but there’s still something missing. I think it’s because red on white was the home colors while white on white (sometimes white on gold) was the away uniform. I don’t know why I miss the home colors, but I do and something seems off because of it.
Don’t misunderstand, I love these uniforms, especially the shadow font, but for a throwback, I would have preferred a red jersey. If we’re going to do a throwback do it right.
But I guess if we aren’t going to be specific, these will do just fine.
Of course, since I have a platform for a thing like this, I figured I’d see if I’m alone in my emptiness. Anyone else miss the red and white? I put a poll in just for this (click here if you don’t see it).
Do you wish the 49ers went red (jersey) on white with their throwback uniforms?
