The Vanderbilt Commodores currently have a uniform contract with Nike. We have 10 basketball uniforms in our database for the Vanderbilt Commodores 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.


The swoosh revamped the Commodores’ look for the 2012-13 season, dropping the team’s familiar bordered jersey font for a blocked wordmark.

Vanderbilt also ditched its secondary star logo that appeared just below the neckline on the backs of jerseys over the last several years. Currently, the Commodores have three different swoosh Tech-fit uniform choices — white, black and gold — and each has a sublimated graphic of what appears to be a basketball net and star on the back.

Shorts no longer feature wide contrasting stripes. In their place is thin contrasting piping and Vanderbilt’s “Star” emblem in the center on side panels. Nike did keep the program’s contrasting collar from previous looks. During Vanderbilt’s run to the Sweet Sixteen in 2004, uniforms featured wide side panels, a striped neckline and armpits as well as a “V” logo at the crest.

The Commodores’ on-court get up has always been close to what Wake Forest wears on the court, a combination of black and whites with vegas gold accents but with stylized wordmarks and numerals.

In the shortened wordmark era, it’s only a matter of time before the swoosh alters Vanderbilt’s traditional wordmark with “VANDY” or “‘DORES” across an alternate jersey.
