“Gold” is one of the uni-verse’s most overused words. The Steelers, for example, like to say that their colors are black and gold (as do all the Pittsburgh teams), but come on — it’s yellow, not gold. And even the teams that have a legitimate claim to having gold as a team color, like the Saints and 49ers, tend to wear more of a beige or khaki these days, because modern lightweight fabrics don’t convey that metallic sheen like the old-fashioned fabrics did.
Which brings us to Georgia Tech’s new football uniforms, which were just unveiled today. As you can see above, the uni numbers on the white jersey are a very shiny gold, as are the stripes on the (yellow) pants.
The striping also appears on the blue pants:
This uni set — Tech’s first makeover since switching from Russell Athletic to Adidas in 2018 — will make its on-field debut on Labor Day, when the Yellow Jackets open their season at home against Clemson.
