Thursday the team unveiled their new ‘City Edition’ uniforms. The jerseys are a color combination or blue and orange. The color combination was used back in the 1980’s and through half of the 1990’s
The jersey design is similar to the uniforms worn when the Cavaliers moved into their current home when in opened in 1994 as Gund Arena. A script Cleveland is on the front. It pays tribute to the Cleveland signs that have been built at landmark locations throughout the area. The phrase one out of five greats can be found at the bottom left corner of the jersey.
The back of the jersey features a small square patch on the back-center collar that displays the number “1” positioned inside of the Larry O’Brien trophy to represent the Cavaliers NBA Championship in 2016.
The shorts will be mostly blue with a touch of orange on the left leg. A Cavaliers ‘C’ will be on the right side. Inside the shorts is a picture of the Great Lakes with Lake Erie in white and the other in orange. The shorts feature the letters CLE at the center of the waistband, the popular abbreviation taken from the Cleveland script word mark.
If you like the ‘City Edition’ uniforms, the wine and gold will debut this new look of Tuesday November 13. The Cavaliers host the Charlotte Hornets at Quicken Loans Arena that night.
Cleveland will sport the ‘City Edition’ uniforms on Friday December 7 when the Sacramento Kings come to town. The Cavaliers will wear the uniforms six times this season.
The Land that we love.
