The best uniforms in the NFL are coming back for 2019. The Los Angeles Chargers announced Tuesday that they will use the powder blue jerseys as their primary home uniform next season.

The team revealed that decision with a Twitter video:

In that video, the Chargers focus on the legacy of the uniforms. There are clips of Lance Alworth, Junior Seau and LaDainian Tomlinson wearing the jerseys at pivotal moments in their careers.

It also appears fans may have influenced the decision. The team shows a number of tweets from fans asking them to go back to the powder blue uniforms full time. That might explain why the Chargers tweeted the words “you’re welcome” to accompany the video.

The Chargers also gave fans a clearer look at the uniforms in another post:
