Giants unveil alternate 100th anniversary uniforms, slammed by fans

The New York Giants unveiled an alternate uniform Thursday to commemorate their 100th season. However, the retro “Century Red” uniforms have sparked widespread disapproval on social media.

The uniforms, which could be worn in two games this season, include a red and blue jersey, tan pants and a winged helmet featuring the same red and blue color scheme. The uniform elements reference clothing worn by the Giants during their inaugural season in 1925 and other key moments in franchise history.

“I love that we’re staying true to the heritage,” outside linebacker Kayvon Thibodeaux said in a team press release announcing the uniforms.

Linebacker Bobby Okereke said after seeing (and trying on) the uniform for the first time he felt like it was “gritty and vintage.”

“It’s a throwback to the 1920s and 1930s, when they were starting to get dirty,” he said. “It’s a tribute to all the guys who played before. They paved the way for us to play this great game.”

Fans on social media, however, did not share the same enthusiasm for the uniforms, expressing their disapproval in response to a photo of the uniforms with comments such as “I want to like this…but the pants ruined them ” and “That was a miss.”

The NFL revised its uniform policy to allow teams to add a third helmet model in April. The league updated its uniform policy in 2022 to allow a second helmet shell color.
