Clothes Call: Piping or no piping, Michigan?

Clothes Call: Piping or no piping, Michigan?

Michigan Uniform

BTN

We’re always interested in the latest fashion trends across the Big Ten, and it’s of particular interest every Saturday during the fall. On Saturday, one of our show producers noticed something rather interesting about Michigan’s uniform for its Big Ten opener at Purdue.

As you can tell from the picture above, some Wolverines’ jerseys include maize piping on the back and others do not. It must be a mistake or a personal-preference thing, because there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to who has the piping and who doesn’t.

For what it’s worth, the jersey looks better without the piping. Wouldn’t you agree after looking at Marvin Robinson (3) and Graham Glasgow’s (61) jerseys?

This is only a road jersey issue, if you were wondering, because Michigan doesn’t have piping on its home blues.

Catch up on all the action and video highlights from Michigan’s 44-13 win over Purdue on our Michigan at Purdue page.
