If you watched last night's UNC-Florida State game, you would have seen the Jordan Brand silver anniversary uniforms sported by the Tar Heels. For at least one night, Roy Williams' team wasn't covered in their classic Carolina Blue argyle digs, instead going for a flashier and hopefully just temporary switch to the silver-and-white.
Of course, North Carolina is a special place for Jordan Brand because of the whole, you know, Michael Jordan-going-there thing. But His Airness is a business, man. Which is why fellow Jordan Brand-sponsored clubs California and Georgetown are getting their own silver-and-white treatment, and why Jordan Brand has a special version of the Air Jordan 2010 all done up in silver, too. The hope, naturally, is that you Bears and Hoyas fans will plunk down good money on a jersey you might not wear for again another 10 years, at which point it will become cool again, maybe.
In the meantime, those of us who like to pretend to have an eye for fashion -- I'm talking about myself here -- can judge these jerseys like Tim Gunn on "Project Runway." You tell me: Does the silver make it work?
