It’s called LA Steel, and Derek Zoolander is totally jealous.
The UCLA Bruins announced an alternative uniform Wednesday in conjunction with adidas.
Here is the exact description:
The Bruins’ jerseys and pants are rendered in rich dark onyx grey and feature ultra-light metallic embellishments that shimmer, paying tribute to the bright lights of Los Angeles. UCLA’s famous shoulder stripes complement the city skyline that appears on the sleeves of the TECHFIT compression base layer and the UCLA script mark on the pants. The uniform numbers are inspired by UCLA’s own signature stripes.
Per the school, the uniforms will be worn at “a select home game this upcoming season.” Anyone want to take a stab at which game? We know it won’t be USC -- since both teams returned to the tradition of wearing home jerseys (which, by the way, continues to be awesome). Stanford and Arizona are big games at home. But my guess is Oct. 11 when Oregon rolls into town. But we’ll see.
So what are your thoughts on the new unis? Like, dislike?
