It’s throwback time for the Green Bay Packers, who will celebrate their 1950s style with all-green uniforms when they play the Washington Football Team.
The Green Bay Packers already have some of the most classic uniforms in the NFL. They’re breaking out some old-school green for Sunday’s matchup with the Washington Football Team.
This week the team announced their “50s Classic” uniforms, inspired by their threads from 1950-1953.
The team dropped a hype video for the unis while also changing their Twitter profile picture for the throwback week.
Packers throwback uniforms honor the 1950s
Those uniforms were throwbacks themselves. They harkened back to the first time Green Bay wore green and gold in the 1930s.
The modern-day interpretation features green jerseys and pants with gold accents, including gold numbers and shoulder stripes. It’s all topped off with a solid gold helmet.
The Packers have donned some questionable-looking throwback uniforms in the past. These ones are simple and sharp, honoring the past while avoiding eyesore status in the present. Top marks all around on the design.
Offensive lineman David Bakhtiari, who may be nearing a return at left tackle following an ACL injury, seemed to like the new look.
Wearing throwbacks can be great, but winning in them is the most important part. Green Bay has recovered beautifully from their drubbing at the hands of the Saints to open the season, winning their last five games.
They’re coming off of road wins over the Bengals and the Bears and returning to Lambeau Field with an eye on keeping the momentum going.
