On Tuesday, St. John’s coach Steve Lavin took to Twitter to unveil the Red Storm’s new Under Armour uniform combinations for the first season as part of the new-look Big East.
In a really interesting (to us Uni Bloggers, that is) means of introducing more looks, the program will be wearing different uniforms for conference and non-conference games. Against non-Big East opponents, St. John’s will be sporting hyper-modern threads featuring the New York City skyline across their chests and ribs, as well as above their knees. The reds above will be the Johnnies’ new non-con road look.
Below is the line-art design of the program’s new home non-con look. Obviously it is white instead of road red, but again, the watermark of the NYC skyline is featured prominently on both the jersey and shorts. The lettering above the numbers is also modern compared to the throwback looks on the in-conference uniforms below.
Below is what the team will be wearing during its in-conference road games. The red uniforms feature old-school lettering that provides a nice contrast to the modern look and feel of the Red Storm’s skyline jerseys. Instead of New York City, these throwbacks feature a dotting pattern that pays homage to St. John’s teams of yesteryear.
Finally, Lavin’s squad will be hosting the rest of the new Big East’s teams in throwback whites. Again, there is no skyline here, but the simplicity the look brings to the court is on point.
Overall, we really like how Under Armour figured out how to bring both old and new looks to St. John’s, especially as the Big East strives to carve out its identity as a non-football conference.
