Last Monday we all gathered at Martin’s Square in downtown Moscow and Idaho did a quasi fashion show in front of a handful of fans, reporters, the team and this blogger who took a lot of pictures and said ‘fuck yes’ when Paul Petrino told us to buy bowl tickets.
There are a shit ton of combinations, so I ranked them! My opinion is the only one which matters but you are welcome to comment with your disagreements.
#13 – Gold Helmet, Black Top, Gold pants
It’s the classic look we’re used to.
#12 Gold helmet, white top, black tops
I assume this will be one of our road combinations this year. This will be refreshing since the black helmet is no longer around. It’s simple but doesn’t pop. Unless Kaden Elliss is hitting you. Then it will pop.
#11 – Gold helmet, white top, gold pants
Again probably another road combination. The gold helmet on gold pants makes this a quintessential Vandals look. The black helmets always felt awkward on the road.
#10 – Silver helmet, white top, black pants
SILVER HELMET. WE HAVE SILVER HELMETS GUYS!
#9 – Gold helmet, black top, black pants
We wore this in our season-closing win over Texas State. The black on black looks good with a gold helmet. It was a bit played out with the black helmets over and over again over the last three seasons. I can get used to this for a few home games.
#8 – Silver helmet, black top, black pants
Okay, this is a SUPER dope spin on the above set. I think this should be the Montana State set.
#7 – Gold helmet, black top, silver pants
WE HAVE SILVER PANTS!!! All of our colors!
#6 Silver helmet, white top, silver pants
Easily our cleanest look for road games.
#5 – Silver helmet, silver top, gold pants
This is the quintessential look showing off all of our colors. This is the look where I’ll say it’s about damn time we went to silver. Like, how the hell did it take this long? Our colors are SILVER AND GOLD. We didn’t even have silver trim. That’s ridiculous. Thank you for finally getting it right.
#4 Gold helmet, silver helmet, black pants
If you consider black to an official secondary color, then this is definitely the best look that shows off all of our colors.
#3 – Gold helmet, silver top, black pants
(Edit) – Thank you to friend of the blog Bryan Stith for catching an awesome combination that I missed. I’m inserting this just below the silver on silver looks because getting as much gold in there as possible is clearly a good look for us.
#2 – Silver helmets, silver tops, silver pants
SILVER ON SILVER ON SILVER ON SILVER ON SILVER ON SILVER
#1 – Gold helmet, silver top, silver pants
Silver on silver on silver is going to look dope at first, but it can easily get played out. To me, this is the cleanest look with our new jerseys. The gold numbers on the jerseys pop with the gold helmet. Silver and Gold. This is our look. Go Vandals.
