CHARLOTTE HORNETS UNVEIL NEW TEAL & PURPLE UNIFORMS

The Charlotte Hornets unveiled the team’s much-anticipated new uniforms, to be worn for the 2014-15 season. The sartorial overhaul comes after the organization re-branded from the Bobcats back to the Hornets. The updated fashions return to the famous teal and purple color way from 1988-2002. Today the Hornets debuted three retro designs that pay homage to the past, while also incorporating new details. As the team explained:

Each of the uniforms feature several elements tied to the history of the uniforms used by the original Hornets, including the use of stripes, the crossover-style V-neck collar and the placement of a logo on the waistband of the shorts. The stripes appear on the left side of the uniform only and bring back the purple, teal and light blue striping used by the original Hornets, along with the addition of gray.

The white home jerseys feature “Hornets” across the chest in teal, outlined in purple. Purple tone-on-tone numbers are included on the front and back, as well as players’ names in teal on the back. Additional details include a teal neckline with purple stripe, a teal Hornets silhouette on the waistband, striping on the left side of the uniform, and a Crown CH logo on the bottom left leg.

The purple road jerseys feature “Hornets” across the chest in white, outlined in teal. Teal tone-on-tone numbers are included on the front and back, as well as players’ names in white on the back. Additional details include a teal neckline with purple stripe, a teal Hornets silhouette on the waistband, striping on the left side of the uniform, and a Crown CH logo on the bottom left leg.

The teal alternate jerseys feature “Charlotte” across the chest in white, outlined in purple. Purple tone-on-tone numbers are included on the front and back, as well as players’ names in white on the back. Additional details include a purple neckline with teal stripe, a white Hornets silhouette on the waistband, striping on the left side of the uniform, and the team’s secondary logo on the bottom left leg.
