The Somerset Patriots (Double-A Northeast) have overhauled their jerseys as part of their new affiliation with the New York Yankees.
The home jerseys will now feature navy blue pinstripes with the wordmark “PATRIOTS” in twill across the chest in navy blue and outlined in burgundy. The navy blue numbers, also outlined in burgundy on the back, will continue to be the style used by the Patriots throughout their existence. The Patriots secondary logo is featured on the left sleeve and the Yankees primary logo is on the right sleeve. The MiLB logo is located on the back of the neck in navy blue, black and silver.
The pants worn at home will also feature the navy blue pinstripes.
The road gray jerseys feature “SOMERSET” in a lightweight kiss cut twill written across the front in navy blue outlined in white in a similar block font used for “NEW YORK” to mirror the Yankees design. The numbers match the Yankees look and coloring on the back and are lightweight kiss cut twill as well. The sleeves are adorned with the Patriots secondary logo on the left sleeve and the Yankees primary logo on the right sleeve. The MiLB logo is located on the back of the neck in navy blue, black and silver.
An alternate blue jersey also uses the Yankees road look with the word “PATRIOTS” across the chest in gray with a white outline. The wordmark and the numbers on the back are decorated with lightweight kiss cut twill. The logos once again appear on each sleeve. The navy blue, black, and silver MiLB logo is on the back of the neck.
Both the road gray and the alternate blue jerseys will be worn with solid gray pants.
This is only the third version of the Patriots home uniforms. The team originally featured white vests from 1999-2014. In 2015, a more traditional jersey top was introduced with sleeves.
