The long-awaited arrival of the new Green Bay Packers alternate uniforms arrived today, and the team has hit them out of the park.

This year’s classic uniform is a throwback to the 1950s. They are all green with the numbers in gold. Similar to their most recent alternate uniforms, the helmet will also remain gold but won’t have the Packers’ logo or stripes on it.

Below is a closer look at the Packers’ new alternate uniforms.

According to the team’s official website, the Packers will debut the new throwback uniforms in the Week 7 home game against the Washington Football Team at Lambeau Field.

It’s hard not to love this new design. It’s simple yet effective, and is a modern look to the early 1950s uniforms that were also all green with gold stripes and numbers.

Green Bay didn’t have an alternate uniform last season, and the team also didn’t have a color rush jersey. It was just the normal home and away uniforms. The last alternate uniform the team wore was in Week 3 of the 2019 season in a victory over the Denver Broncos. That uniform was a throwback to the 1930s and ’40s when they wore blue and gold colors.

It’s fun to see the team add a modern touch to some of their old uniforms. There are plenty others that would be great to see in future years such as a throwback to 1950-53 when the team wore gold jerseys with green numbers and stripes, a reverse of this year’s alternate uniforms.

Or how about a throwback to 1935-36 when they wore a green jersey with gold sleeves?

There are a number of possibilities for future updates to the alternate uniform, but hopefully the Packers will keep this one for at least a few seasons. They look great and are, in my opinion, the Packers’ best alternate uniforms to date.

What are your thought on the uniform?
