Expect a blackout at Guaranteed Rate Field next month.

The White Sox and Nike introduced the team’s new City Connect alternate uniforms Friday morning. The dark gray pinstriped uniforms feature the word “Southside” in a Gothic typeface on the front. The cap says “Chi.”

The Sox said the jerseys were sold out three hours after going on sale Friday at the Chicago Sports Depot store at Guaranteed Rate Field. Tim Anderson’s jersey sold out in two hours. Related items, including hoodies and caps, are still available. The team expects to be restocked on June 4 and June 5 and have items available at the White Sox Watch Party event at Navy Pier on June 5.

The team will wear the uniforms in the June 5 game against the Detroit Tigers.

“The White Sox brand aligned perfectly with their side of town’s attitude,” a statement on the team’s website said. “The look not only resonated on the southside — but permeated through hip hop and youth culture.”

The Sox are the latest team to don a Nike-designed remixed uniform. The Boston Red Sox wore yellow-and-blue uniforms last month to mixed reviews.
