I have been a fan of uniforms for as long as I have been watching sports and it turns out, others are just as fascinated. I began writing about baseball uniforms several years ago on the HearstCT Baseball Blog and found out people are super into it.
GametimeCT provides the perfect platform to relaunch Uni-Browse and take a love of uniforms state wide.
Most of all, talking about uniforms is really fun and we here at GameTimeCT want to get you the fans in on the conversation.
Football is traditionally a conservative landscape of uniforms, but over the last decade that has changed and some teams are embracing new looks and designs, while others are keeping the classics in style.
We want to see the new, the old, the traditional and the alternates.

Here are your choices for this week.
The rare road uniform is making an appearance this week. Granby gets a ton of points for its helmets which are among the coolest in the state. Garnet helmets with a gold clawed paw ripping through the side of the helmet, leaving silver claw marks. Jerseys are white with garnet numbers outlined in gold and “GRANBY” across the chest. No numbers on the sleeves but garnet and gold stripes on the sleeves. The pants are garnet with “BEARS” in gold down the side.
A team that runs the ball as much as North Haven, is not going to be flashy in the uniform department but that does not mean they don’t rock some nice threads. White helmets with a maroon “NH” on the side and no center stripe. Jerseys are maroon with white numbers and “NH” across the chest. There is a SCC patch on the right front. There are no numbers or striping on the shoulders. The pants are maroon with “NORTH HAVEN” down the right leg.
Fire up the purple and gold. Westhill takes a page from the Minnesota Vikings in its uniforms while adding a few local touches. Helmets are purple with a white horn on the side with gold trim and no stripe. The jerseys are purple with gold numbers outlined in white and black and “VIKINGS” across the chest. There is a Viking logo on the front right. The shoulders have numbers on top of the pads. The sleeves have black, gold and white striping. The pants are purple with a black and gold stripe down the side, bordered in white.
The classics are classics for a reason. There is nothing fancy about Xavier’s uniforms. In fact, if a team 50 years ago was wearing them, they would fit right in. White helmets, no logo and one solid black stripe down the middle. Jerseys are black with white letters and “XAVIER” across the chest. There are white numbers on top of the shoulders. Pants are all black. Love the simplicity of these old-time uniforms.
Which jerseys are the best?
