Georgia Tech Uniforms: White Helmets, Honeycomb Jerseys To Join Jackets' Rotation

Georgia Tech's uniforms are getting a necessary, fresh update for the 2012 season and beyond, says SBNation's Jason Kirk.

The Jackets will have white helmets for the first time since 2006 (though not the honeycomb version they're wearing tonight), three new jerseys (white, gold, navy), and white and gold pants. Georgia Tech also will keep their 2011 jerseys in the rotation.

A hexagonal pattern is the biggest design change, appearing on the side of the new jerseys and pants and inside jersey numbers. It's a modern look, but one that's not overdone to the point of looking garish, because the pattern is not all that noticeable until seen up close. From what I've seen so far, the all-white look with navy numbers and gold accents is sharp.

Russell Brands, Georgia Tech's uniform partner, explained the thinking behind the design:

"It was imperative the new uniforms paid homage to Georgia Tech's past, but also made a statement with younger players and catalyzed a spirit of enthusiasm for the season ahead," said Gary Barfield, executive vice president of Russell Brands, LLC. "The new designs incorporate historical elements of the Georgia Tech uniforms players and fans alike know and love.

Georgia Tech's official website has a release on the jerseys and a photo gallery here.
