Browns to wear “classic” look vs. Chargers

via Cleveland Browns

Last week it was brown on brown on brown, and the week before that, it was white from head to toe. If you were holding out hope for a Cleveland Browns team clad in all orange, you’re going to have to wait at least one more week.

Thursday afternoon, the team announced its plans to don brown jerseys, white pants, and brown socks on the road against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

This particular jersey and pant combination, widely considered to be the “classic” Cleveland Browns look, was first introduced by the team in 1947:

Since then, the brown-on-white kit has been worn in many iterations over the years, though not with brown socks until the modern era:

At this point, it seems the only piece of the team’s new uniform kit that has yet to see any playing time is the elusive orange jersey. Maybe next week, Cleveland.
