With just under two months before the 2015-16 basketball season tips, Big Ten teams are starting to unveil new uniforms.
Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska and Wisconsin are the first ones to show off their new designs, while a representative Purdue said that they are expected to unveil new uniforms in the near future.
Let's take a quick look at the changes:
The Wolverines, in their final season with adidas, will wear a uniform that will draw its share of headlines for the interesting design just below the waistband. This isn't the first time adidas has done something, um, different around the waistband. At least, the jersey has an old-school feel, save for the white piping on the collar.
The Spartans won't look much different this winter, as their updated look includes minor changes, including less green piping on the jersey and more green accents on the shorts.
The Huskers' redesign is a clean one, with the main differences being the elimination of piping down the sides of the jersey, a thicker piping design on the shorts and a more pronounced waistband.
The Badgers' new threads are more subtle. The biggest difference is the shorts, most notably the change from narrow vertical striping down the sides to thick horizontal striping around the legs, similar to what we saw on the left leg of last season's postseason alternates. The striping down the side of the jersey is gone, too.
See the new designs below:
