New York Fashion Week came early.

The New York Jets officially unveiled a new logo and uniform set on Thursday night as the team prepares to enter a new era. In a showcase at Gotham Hall, several Jets players on hand to model their latest aesthetics.

The uniforms are very similar, if not identical, to the designs leaked on Wednesday.

Actor and comedian J.B. Smoove served as the master of ceremonies. Smoove, who grew up in Mount Vernon, NY, is best known for his role on the HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm.

This is the Jets’ first major visual update since 1998. The renovation features a return to kelly green, the team’s primary color from 1978-97. However, the color has been given the custom label of Gotham Green, which will dominate the home jersey package.

Sam Darnold and Quincy Enunwa showcased the look, complementing the jerseys with white and green pants respectively.

The white road set, given the same “Spotlight White,” featured Robby Anderson and Chris Herndon sporting the look. Once again, both colors of pants were featured with the look, with Anderson wearing all-white, and Herndon clad in green.

Rounding out the set is a black alternate jersey known as “Stealth Black.” The defense took center stage when it came to modeling, with Jamal Adams, Avery Williamson, and Leonard Williams showing them off.

Included with the new jerseys is a new primary logo and helmet. The Jets will keep their iconic oval emblem, albeit with a slight update. The “Jets” script and accompanying football have gotten a slight update, and the “NY” behind the type has disappeared.

In its place are smaller letters spelling out “NEW YORK” above the “JETS” print. The helmet goes from white to green and eliminates the oval and “NEW YORK” portions when it comes to the logo sticker. The remaining logo has been enlarged.


Previously, the Jets had worn a green helmet in the aforementioned 1978-97 era, though that prior helmet merely featured the word “JETS” spelled out, with a speed-bird shape topping the J.

Smoove concluded the proceedings by teaching the gathered Jets a new touchdown dance, one that emulated a New York subway ride.
