Thursday night the Jets showed off for the first time their new look uni’s that they will start to wear in the 2019 season.
“It was time for a new uniform. It was time for a new Jets,” said CEO Christopher Johnson.
“And I think it’s extraordinary that given all this time it’s taken to get to this point, we are now as a team on the cusp of what I think is a new era. And it’s most appropriate that we’re going to start that era with a new uniform, a new look. I’m really excited about it.”
Jets ownership and executives collaborated with the NFL and Nike to identify three colors that will define the next generation of New York Jets football: Gotham Green, Spotlight White and Stealth Black.
In addition to the implementation of black into the overall color scheme, the Gotham Green was a shade developed exclusively for the Jets. The font will be edgy and unique, and the city that inspired it all — NEW YORK — will be stitched across the chest of each jersey.
“It’s a statement about the future. I think it’s a statement about how we want to be perceived as a little bolder, a little more innovative and a little greater,” Glat said. “I don’t want to interpret too much into uniforms and logos but we think that’s what we’re trying to capture and hopefully that gets reflected on the field.”
