Purdue confirmed on twitter that they will be getting new uniforms next season... finally. I've never been a fan of their current uniforms and not just because I'm an Indiana fan. I've never quite understood the shorts design nor have I liked the contrasting collar, shoulder stripes, and thing text outlines. I'd like to see the men's team go in the route of the women's team with more traditional uniforms, but I have a feeling Nike will not do that. I came up with a few new uniforms to create a new set for the Boilermakers. The three primary uniforms feature the cowcatcher inspired wordmark emphasized with a contrasting panel. I've never been much of a fan of the cowcatcher wordmark on their current uniforms, but I think by framing it inside of its own panel gives more intention to the shape and makes it look less out of place. The cowcatcher design is repeated on the shorts and creates an abstracted version of the traditional two color short piping. The two alternates are fauxbacks. The first brings the script from the "World's largest drum" to the hardwood in the style of Purdue's uniforms from the 70's. The Black alternate is also done in the same 70's style with an arched script similar to the uniforms Illinois has worn in recent years.
