Golden Nuggets: Cal's Football Uniform Redesign Rated as Best in the Nation

CalBears.com

Twenty-three teams debuted new uniforms this offseason. Cal's redesign earns the highest score in LostLettermen's rankings.

New uniforms are all the rage this offseason. Twenty-three FBS schools will debut new looks this season. Cal's uniforms engendered a mostly positive reaction, despite the questionable collar stripe and matte helmets. LostLettermen rated every set of new uniforms and gave Cal the highest marks in the nation.

Like Pac-12 rival Oregon State, Cal athletics underwent a program-wide rebranding this past spring. Unlike the Beavers, the Bears took a less-is-more approach to their football uniforms — much to our delight.

The numbers on the jerseys are bigger and more modern-looking than what Cal has sported in recent years. The same adjectives can be used to describe the new matte blue helmets, which feature a bigger script "Cal" decal on the sides than in previous years and mercifully do away with the funky-looking helmet stripe we had grown accustomed to seeing.

Our favorite aspect of the new threads is the manner in which Cal’s updated logo is woven into it. The new Bear appears in watermark-like form on the players’ numbers (very cool) and can also be seen on the outside of the shoulders and on the pants.

While they're not perfect, they're certainly better than redesigns we've seen at fellow Pac-12 schools UCLA and Arizona.
