UNIFORM HISTORY

Portland’s unique uniform design has remained almost the same since 1977, a style featuring the franchise’s diagonal “blaze” strip down the jersey and side of shorts. The Blazers’ wordmark has changed colors and size through the years, but the recognizable diagonal stripe patterns haven’t.

In 1991, Portland dropped contrasting waistbands from their uniforms, instead selecting the primary color of shorts. After the 2001-02 season, drop-shadowed numerals left after a 10-year reign. The franchise’s black road uniforms are the only threads that feature “PORTLAND” as the primary wordmark. All others have “BLAZERS” pressed above the diagonal strip.

The Blazers currently have two alternates, a red road uniform worn since 2002 and a white “RIP CITY” style with silver, red and black piping usually reserved for home games. Silver was added to Portland’s long-standing red, white and black color scheme in 2002.

Prior to Blaze the Trail Cat’s debut that same season, Portland never had an official mascot. Portland’s swirl, tornado-esque logo was re-imagined in 2002 with 10 red and silver lines meeting in the middle and has stayed in place since. Prior to that, only red and black lines between scripts were used in the franchise’s primary graphic.

From 1977-91, Portland utilized lowercase font on most of its apparel including gameday jerseys. They moved to all-caps for good in 1991.
