All brown errythang: Browns to wear all-brown uniforms on Sunday

via @browns

They’ve tried the Kardiac Kids-style brown and orange, and they’ve donned their whitest of whites, but this Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, the Browns are trying out a whole new look.

Perhaps trying to replicate the success they found in all-white against the Tennessee Titans, the Browns are now going with the exact opposite: Brown from neck to toe. Brown jerseys. Brown pants. Brown socks. Needless to say, it’s a lot of brown.

This is the first appearance of the brown-on-brown-on-brown combination of the team’s new uniform kit, unveiled earlier this year, but it isn’t the first time the team has worn brown jerseys and pants together.

Nike Cleveland Browns UniformsIn October 2013, the Browns debuted an all-brown look against the Buffalo Bills — the first time the team had worn the monochromatic combination in its 67-year history. It wasn’t met with rave reviews.

In fact, USA TODAY called the look “hideous, even for the Browns.”

A recap of Browns’ uniforms so far this season — and their respective success rates:

Week 1
Brown Jerseys
Orange Pants
Orange Socks
L @ New York Jets (31-10)

Week 2
White Jerseys
White Pants
White Socks
W vs. Tennessee Titans (28-14)

  • Oh good, the unitard look is back! Why is it so hard to understand that the pants and socks need to be different colors?

  • RGB

    Ugh.
    Fudgsicles.

    Yet another mix-and-match costume comes out of the clown wardrobe. It’s a new embarrassment every week.

    The Cleveland Haslams: too clueless to know they’re clueless, too classless to know they’re classless. The joke never ends.

    I like it. Go win a football game.

  • Robert Sass

    Gosh, why not the orange pants? Or why not an orange jersey with brown pants. If the team plays like crap, they will be wearing craps colors I guess.

    I love brown jerseys, just not all brown. I like the new uni’s with the exception of the name “Cleveland” and “Browns” on the shirt and pants.

    I don’t think I would like the all orange look either…

  • RGB

    Well, they’re pretty much guaranteed to look like poo no matter what the result is.

  • Du

    Well, they are called the Browns.

  • Eric G

    Jeez, a lot of naysayers. I like the change. The only thing I’m bracing for is the incredibly original sh*t jokes that will be made. Like they’re the first people to associate brown with doo-doo.

    They could wear pumpkins and buckskin, for all I care. Just win.

  • tigersbrowns2

    i like it too … this combination is my favorite. now they need to win in it.

  • tigersbrowns2

    hi ROBERT … this look will grow on you if they consistently win while wearing this combo.

  • tigersbrowns2

    hi MrC … you love it & you know it.

  • tigersbrowns2

    ummm , where does it say that ?? or does it go without saying ?

  • tigersbrowns2

    just go with it … we need a change around here. nobody will care about this uni if the browns win in it on sunday.

    Listen Jessica, if you don’t want to be relegated to the site’s fashion posts just use your big girl words, tell them.

  • MrCleaveland

    Ungh . . .

  • BenRM

    I’m in the minority, but I like it.

  • That’s like top of page 3 in the Tim Gunn Rules of Style, in 32-point bold font.

  • tigersbrowns2

    got it … i don’t know what i was thinking !

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    The Deuce really should be starting this game now!

  • CB Everett

    Using Al Davis’ “just win” against his team…have you no respect for the dead?! It’s ok, I don’t think his son has any either…

  • chrisdottcomm

    Brown/Brown, Orange/Brown, Orange/White, White/Brown…whatever, they are honestly hideous no matter which combo you roll out…. and that’s regardless of them winning or losing in them.

  • RGB
  • Sam Gold

    Me, too.

  • Slab

    I like it. If you are named the Browns, embrace it. Ugly maybe, but isn’t cutting edge fashion usually pretty ugly. Oregon’s unis are hideous, too, but at least they are distinct.
