White Sox wearing 1959 throwbacks

Just caught a glimpse on the pregame (and yes, I'm watching the Cubs, too).

And there's this:

Sox honor '59 AL champs with uniforms

EDIT, like these (wonder if they'll wear the "WS" socks):

EDIT 2: They just showed the first pitches and either some of the older guys brought their own uni from 1959 or there were differences, because some were off-white.

Sadly, no white stirrups but there are raglan sleeves!

Those are such a disappointment. Back in '05, the Sox wore '59 throwbacks when the Dodgers came to town, and they were the most spot-on throwbacks I've ever seen:

...for a team that did such a great job a few years ago, these are a travishamockery. Let's see...incorrect font, wrong socks, hell, the jerseys are the wrong damn color.

In all fairness, the "real feel" yesterday was over 100 in Chicago. Perhaps that is why the team wasn't wearing wool/flannel jerseys.

Now that I defended the material, the numbers and socks bothered me too, but goodness knows, 90% of the stadium didn't notice...

50% was empty, 35% didn't notice, 10% did notice, and 5% booed the Cubs.

Well done.
