The Chicago Bulls are bringing back their iconic black pinstripe jerseys for this season’s “Statement Edition” uniform. Worn by the team for during their championship-winning 1995-1996 and 1996-1997 seasons, the alternate jerseys pay homage to the original uniform while upgrading the design for the new generation. The colors of the vertical pinstripes and trims are refreshed, while the front of the shirt replaces “Bulls” with “Chicago.” Additionally, the shorts include a row of four stars along the belt buckle mirroring the Chicago flag.
“Our new Statement Edition uniforms are not only a nod to that fan-favorite jersey but also represent an important part of our franchise history, with a modern twist that reflects the look and feel of Chicago Bulls basketball today,” stated Bulls President and COO Michael Reinsdorf.
