Charlotte Hornets unveil new classic white pinstripe uniform

New, comments

In celebration of the team’s 30th anniversary, the Hornets unveiled a classic white edition of the pinstripe uniform.

The Charlotte Hornets unveiled a new uniform for the 2018 NBA season today, and it’s another throwback to a classic design.

The new design pays homage to the white pinstripe uniform from the 1988-89 season that became synonymous with the Hornets identity. Unveiled in a short video through the team’s official app, the uniform appears in an old box TV after a montage of classic Hornets moments capped off by the slogan, “The Original is Back”:

As you can see, the pinstripes run vertical down the top while teal and purple trim outline the edges of the top and shorts. While we don’t get a close up of the shorts, it does appear that the classic Hornets logo is included in the center of the waistline.

Here is a closer look at the top:

These uniforms are very similar to the teal pinstripe edition that the team played in last season. But that’s not a bad thing, as these uniforms were and remain one of the best in the NBA.

We don’t know if these white uniforms will replace last season’s teal edition or if the team will play in both. Here’s hoping for the latter.
