The Cold Filtered Ramblings of Gene Mueller

More than you ever wanted to know about the Green Bay Packers uniform

It's an iconic sports fashion statement: the Packers' green and gold, the football shaped "G".   No matter how proficient or inept the player inside, the look has pretty much stayed the same for six decades.

The Green Bay Press Gazette points out that the team colors first appeared on the gridiron 62 years ago: September 17, 1950 by my count.   A blogger, though, takes issue with the alleged anniversary and claims the team dabbled in green years before.

In an era when teams now see their uniforms as another revenue stream, its refreshing to see our favorite NFL franchise stick to it's fashion guns.  Tweaks have been far and few to the outfits--a stripe here, a change of socks there--and the Pack didn't allow Nike to change a single thread when the equipment beheamoth started making the league's togs.

Here's the NFL video that walks you through the various incarnations of the Packers uniform, dating back to the days when their first name wasn't "Green Bay".
