Classic Look with a Side of Plain

October 01, 2012 8 Comments

The Brooklyn Nets are full of firsts this season. Recently we were privy to the inside of their brand new arena, the Barclays Center. The Nets become New York City’s second team, but more importantly Brooklyn’s first sports franchise since the Brooklyn Dodgers played at Ebbets Field. 

Because one of the owners of the Nets is a hip-hop mogul, the team was able to unveil their new jerseys in a special manner. Jay-Z opened the Barclays Center by playing the first event at the new arena. This even before a basketball game has been played there. Jay-Z, a native of the NYC borough, wore a new Brooklyn Nets jersey at the concert.

The jerseys are simple, classic, and depict the image the team wants to portray to their fans. Both home and away jerseys are two colors, black and white. The word “Brooklyn” appears on the jersey, but not the word “Nets”. Supposedly, this is to highlight the new part of the franchise, its location. On the back of the jerseys, above the player’s name, appears the Brooklyn Nets official symbol, a basketball with the letter “B” in side.

The Nets roster, similar to their jerseys, is new look. The team has added former Hawks star Joe Johnson to the mix to go along with point guard Deron Williams and forward Brook Lopez. The Nets hope that this three headed monster, along with coach Avery Johnson, can steer this team to the playoffs.

Apparel Sizing Tips:

Use these tips as a general guide when finding your measurements:

Chest/Bust: With your arms at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest, across shoulder blades and under arms.

Waist: To measure your natural waistline, wrap the tape so it intersects your navel. Keep tape flat, but comfortably loose.

Hips: Stand with your heels together and measure the fullest part of your hips. Make sure the measuring tape is level all the way around your body.

Inseam: Stand up straight, and start the tape measure high in your crotch. Straighten the tape down the inside of your leg to the bottom of your ankle.
