The Tennessee Vols currently have a uniform contract with Adidas. We have 7 basketball uniforms in our database for the Tennessee Vols and are working to add more to Uniform Critics. Feel free to contact us with any uniform designs for this team that we may be missing.

UNIFORM HISTORY

Tennessee’s one-tone all-orange get up during the 2012-13 season is one of several that needed not be worn by Adidas-sponsored schools.

The monochromatic uniforms are a nod to team unity and pride for Tennessee’s bright orange colors. Adidas recently introduced a similar uniform on Christmas Day in the NBA. It was only the fifth time in history that Tennessee had donned its road orange for a home game at Thompson-Boling Arena.

In the early 2000s, Tennessee began incorporating black as a third color into its uniform scheme. Black outlined white wordmarks and numerals on the Volunteers’ road orange and lined the collar of Adidas’ Tennessee home threads.

Under Bruce Pearl, the Volunteers always donned an arched “TENNESSEE” wordmark on their home and away garb and during the early years, had extra wide shoulders with Adidas. Checkerboard side panels on shorts were unique to Tennessee in the early 2000s before the team stuck with a primary base color and contrasting piping a few years later.

Like most Adidas schools in 2013, shorts feature a winding team-colored stripe with a honeycomb graphic that fades into the uniform’s primary color around the leg.

Tennessee’s block “T” is located below the neck on the back of every jersey in its own rectangular box as well as just above the honeycomb fade on shorts.
