These new threads feature heavy-duty stretch woven fabric that will have less stretch and allow for increased mobility. The overall range of motion in these jerseys will be improved with the modified arm holes.
True to Purdue, the shoulders of the new jerseys feature the Cowcatcher to match the front of the Boilermaker train logo.
The “Boiler Up” rallying cry will also be on the inside part of the jersey:
And for all of the Purdue purists, need not worry. These new uniforms will still have the block numbers that have become customary for the Boilermakers:
The design will be used across Purdue’s three new uniforms. There will be black, gray and white jerseys, all of which will have the same base features.
The gold helmets will be worn with the black uniforms, the white helmets will go with the white uniforms, and the black helmets will be paired with Purdue’s new gray look:
It’s definitely a modern look out of Nike’s Pro Combat line. Will it yield more wins in 2016?
