The Portland Pirates unveiled new uniforms to be worn during the 2015-16 season on Tuesday. The team unveiled a new design for its home and away sweaters, as well as an alternate throwback sweater that replicates the team’s original black road sweater.
“The uniforms unveiled today represent an opportunity for us to a create fresh, clean look as we begin our new affiliation with the Florida Panthers, while also paying tribute to our roots as an organization,” said Portland Pirates COO Brad Church. “We feel the new game uniforms bring us a more traditional look that our players and fans will be proud of. We’re also excited to bring back our original “Swash” logo and our original uniform design in our alternate jerseys. This is a design that our fans have been asking for, and we are very happy to make this design a reality.”
Three of the design elements of the new uniform make their first appearance on a main Portland Pirates game sweater: a tie string collar, black shoulder piping, and a horizontal belt stripe with smaller border stripes on both the waist and elbows.
