The Bears’ jerseys voted fourth-best in NFL after the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers.
Three different jerseys are in the Bears’ repertoire. They have the dark blue and orange, the white and orange and the alternative throwbacks.
The color scheme is as effective as ever, the matching stripes on the sleeves and socks are still the envy of most other teams, the unique number font is still instantly recognizable, and the Monsters of the Midway throwback has become a nice annual ritual. So why have the Bears dropped three spots in this year’s rankings? Two reasons: First, the helmet logo is starting to feel a bit dated. And all the old-school trappings don’t work well with Nike’s Flywire collar. Several other teams — including all three of the ones ranked above the Bears on this year’s list — have opted not to use that collar style. The Bears would be smart to do likewise.
The Bears will continue to wear the three different jerseys throughout the 2015-16 season.
