UNIFORM HISTORY

UCLA’s uniforms in the 2013 PAC-12 tournament featured loud camouflage-inspired shorts and bright, gold wordmarks and numerals on jerseys.

UCLA was one of six teams — Baylor, Kansas, Louisville, Notre Dame and Cincinnati — to don Adidas’ “Adizero” threads.

UCLA’s new digs were one of three that included unconventional short sleeves, a fashion snafu that sent an immediate ripple through the Bruins’ traditional fanbase. The same program that proudly displays its iconic blue and gold and arched “UCLA” wordmark every night out went against tradition and by some accounts, tarnished the school’s 11 national championships and disrespected a rich legacy that includes John Wooden, Bill Walton and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

UCLA and Adidas have been partners since 1999 and in 2010, agreed to another contract extension. During that span with the three stripes, the Bruins have primarily stuck to their classic white uniforms at home with blue and yellow trim and the inverse on the road.

One major switch to the Bruins’ iconic wordmark in 2008 included switching the C in “UCLA” to gold instead of blue on home jerseys to commemorate 100 championships (in Roman numerals, C stands for 100) across all sports at the university.

In 2013, to compete with Nike’s Hyper Elite alternates, UCLA did don all-blue at home with dark blue numerals outlined in gold. Compared to other alternates unveiled the same season at other Adidas-sponsored programs, these “L.A. Nights” were some of the best.

The two-tone blues are now a routine home alternate in Los Angeles, but the Bruins’ double-striped shorts have remained classic throughout the Adidas era without use of a logo.
