On Monday night, the North Carolina Tar Heels unveiled new uniforms for the 2015 college football season. The tweaks to the UNC football look will be something familiar to those who root on the basketball team.
For the first time, the football team will be embracing the argyle pattern.
“We are excited to once again partner with Nike, one of the most recognizable brands in the world, to help us refresh and refine our marks and logos,” said University of North Carolina Athletic Director Bubba Cunningham in a press release.
“The changes are subtle, but they celebrate our history and create consistency as we further seek to distinguish our brand. This is our blue and we’re proud of it.”
UNC will have argyle on the collar, down the pant leg and as the center helmet stripe.
“Nike has a long-standing relationship with the University of North Carolina and it’s been a remarkable experience to capture the essence of their rich history,” said Todd Van Horne, Vice President and Creative Director for Nike Football and Baseball.
“The subtle updates honor the brand equity their athletic identity has built over decades and further reinforces the brand for the next generation of Tar Heels.”
