Originally written June 26, 2013 on Diehardsport:
For the first time since 2007, the San Diego Chargers have made some slight tweaks to their current uniforms.  The Chargers made three slight tweaks the uniforms, changing the color of the collar so that it matches the uniform color, adding a second color to the nameplate to accent the name more and they added a golden stripe to the socks.  There will be no change to the helmet or pants. From Chargers.com: “We changed the nameplate on all three of the jerseys,” said Spanos. “We had wanted to go to a two-color font.  Most teams in the league use a two color font and it really highlights the name.  It looks a little bit sharper and a little bit more modern.” In addition to modernizing the jerseys, the team is also paying homage to its’ history. “We ended up changing the primary color on the nameplate font on the navy jersey to gold, it’s reminiscent of the 1980’s teams because they had gold nameplate font as well.” In addition to the gold font, the nameplate will be trimmed with powder blue on the navy jersey.  On the white jersey, the font will be navy with a gold outline, and on the powder blue jersey the name is white with a navy outline. The Collar thing isn’t that noticeable, but I really like how the nameplates look, especially the powder blue outline on the navy blue jersey.  Sometimes slight tweaks are the best. Here’s a photo of the old jersey for comparison sake: [Chargers.com]
