Giants unveil new alternate uniforms for 100th season

Earlier this week, the New York Giants announced plans to celebrate their 100th season in the NFL, complete with a unique town hall event, branded merchandise, books, a docuseries, and a multitude of other things.

As part of the celebration, the Giants also revealed that they will appear on the first-ever offseason edition of HBO’s Hard Knocks, which is scheduled to premiere on July 2.

However, one noticeable absence from the flood of news was the rumored reveal of a new alternate uniform.

Late on Wednesday night, shortly after the 2024 regular-season schedule was announced, the Giants dropped a not-so-subtle hint that news on those uniforms was, in fact, coming.

True to their word, the Giants unveiled their new alternate/throwback uniforms for the 2024 season on Thursday at 10 a.m. ET.

The Giants threw it all the way back to 1925 (pants), 1933 (jersey), and 1938 (helmet) with the style and color scheme, which is sure to be controversial among fans despite the historical context and accuracy.

“I feel like it’s gritty and vintage,” linebacker Bobby Okereke said. “It’s a throwback to the 1920s, 1930s when they were out there just getting grimy. It’s a testament to all the guys who played before. They paved the way for us to play this great game.”

“I like the fact that we stick to the legacy,” edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux said, “and keep paying it forward.”

More from the Giants:

The uniform platform is presented by United Airlines and is the culmination of a two-year process in partnership with the NFL. The uniform harkens back to the earliest days of the franchise featuring tan pants; red socks with blue and white stripes from the team’s inaugural 1925 season; red jerseys accented with blue from 1933, when the Giants played in the first ever NFL Championship Game; and an iconic winged helmet honoring the 1938 champions as the Giants became a cornerstone in the foundation of the league. All of the team’s 2024 jerseys will feature the team’s “100 Seasons” patch.

The Giants will wear their new alternate uniforms in up to two games during the 2024 regular season.
