The Aggies and Adidas announced the new uniforms for the 2012 season, the team’s first in the SEC. One helmet color, coated by the wizards at HydroGraphics Inc. Maroon jerseys over white pants. White jerseys over maroon. Its almost as if taste and discretion prevailed in this design.

This uniform concept is very similar to, and inspired by, the A&M teams of the 70s.

The Aggies have resisted the “all team colors, plus black” look that so many Nike schools have sported. Are you a fan? Not a huge design blast, but certainly sharp and clean, right? Are you missing a charcoal grey? 3 helmet colors? Or is this well done?

UPDATE:

As our always eagle-eyed readers have pointed out, Texas A&M actually DID release a white helemt, though it was not pictured in their promotional pack of photos provided by Adidas. Those are shown below.

    This is well-done, I would say. Very simple in the color scheme, and very nice jerseys. I like the numbers having the 3-D illusion. I’m not sure how much a fan I am of the “12th Man” undershirts, but ah well.

    I am intrigued to see the original USC go against A&M for the first time as a conference foe.

  • Jed

    Very sharp design for the Aggies.

  • Niko

    Wow. Those are good. Good job, A&M

  • kurt

    adidas is doing things right.
    nike and under armour are dressing teams up like clowns.

  • Jimmy

    They copied the Nike Vapor gloves with the logo on it, didn’t know they were allowed too. I like the look though, which is a surprise since its Adidas.

  • PJINTEXAS

    Love it! Whoop!

  • Ashly Elam

    There’s actually a white helmet with grey mask as well.

  • David

    Actually the team has 2 helmet colors.

  • JesseWise

    Overall, this is a decent design. However, there is incongruity between the design of the socks and the rest of the uniform. I don’t like the bevel on the numbers; however, I can’t say I dislike them, because it reinforces the A&M brand, and I would rather judge them on the field. I don’t like the “12th man” on the undershirt. The players are not the 12th men–the fans are.

  • JR Francis

    Thank you, folks. White helmet pictures have been added. Well done!

  • ingmar66

    The 12th man thing is a traditional soccer statement from fans to teams and vice versa and does not belong on a football undershirt, it looks very forced and unnatural here. Otherwise adidas surprise me with the tasteful restraint in this set of uniforms. Well done. Except for the socks. Plain white ones will do, thank you!

    I have seen the pictures of the Texas A&M uniforms, and they are a flashback to the 1970s Aggies teams when Emory Bellard was the head football coach. Bellard later coached Mississippi State University from 1979-1985, and from 1982-85 the Bulldogs also wore jerseys with vertical stripes. Unlike the ones at A&M, they were never popular at MSU.

  • Greg

    Cool design, techfit sure is a joke though.

    Why do the uniform numbers look so cheeseball though?
