The University of Washington (UW) and adidas have unveiled the Huskies’ new adidas Primeknit football uniforms for the 2019 season.
Paying homage to Huskies’ undefeated 1991 Rose Bowl season, the new uniforms bring back the classic purple and white colorways. An “Angle of Pursuit” theme inspired by the angles of the university’s iconic “W” logo is incorporated in an all-new customized numbering system, with the corners of each numeral now featuring the angles and lines from the school’s mark. These numerals were built to work alongside UW’s Husky Bold typeface and is influenced by the classic jersey designs from the era of Coach Don James.
Storytelling elements are incorporated throughout the uniform’s design. Three purple stripes are positioned on both sleeve caps of the jersey and use an iridescent, dimensional film within the fabric to convey the look and feel of a king’s velvet robe. The stripes on either side of the sleeve are left open, referencing the athlete’s never-ending strive for greatness and room for growth. A tonal rain pattern accents the twill numbers, a nod to the rainy weather of the Pacific Northwest.
