UCLA Unveils Black Alternate Uniforms
Last year, UCLA’s alternate uniforms — a dark blue look that the Bruins sported against USC on Homecoming Weekend — was called “L.A. Nights.” This year’s model is “L.A. Midnight.” Designed for the Bruins’ November 15th game against Washington, it marks UCLA’s arrival on the all-black uniform bandwagon.
The pants and jersey are sharp. The stretch marks-like design we can’t stand on the Bruins’ regular uniforms doesn’t look nearly as bad in black. In addition, the typography for the players’ numbers is different but cool.
The predominantly black helmet is also decent with a gold facemask and lettering on top of a black lid. And those gloves are the cherry on top.
We rarely say this but job well done, Adidas. Grade: A-
