In an email from their official team store, the Tennessee Titans announced on Tuesday they will unveil their Houston Oilers throwback uniforms at 9 p.m. ET on July 23.

Founded as the Oilers in 1960, the franchise spent 37 seasons in Houston before moving to Tennessee, where the nickname remained for the 1997-98 seasons before becoming the Titans in 1999.

Tennessee wore Oilers throwback uniforms four times in 2009 (including the preseason) as part of the AFL’s 50th anniversary season, but the uniforms were based on the team’s original design and included a Columbia blue helmet.

This time around, though, the Titans are expected to honor the “Luv Ya Blue” era with white helmets featuring light blue and red oil derricks, light blue jerseys and white pants with a traditional striping pattern down the sides.

That look spanned from the 1975-97, as the franchise only wore all-white uniforms during its final season as the Oilers in 1998, which was also the last year before it moved into Adelphia Coliseum (now Nissan Stadium).

It’s unclear when the Titans will wear the throwback uniforms, though team reporter Jim Wyatt previously speculated they’ll make their on-field debut when they host the Houston Texans on Dec. 17 (1 p.m. ET on CBS).

Presumably, Tennessee will announce the exact date (or dates) when they unveil the uniforms later this month, as Wyatt also suggested they could be worn both at home and on the road this season.

The Titans notably travel to Houston to take on the Texans two weeks later on Dec. 31 (1 p.m ET on FOX). While they wore both home and road uniforms in 2009, Wyatt added they won’t have a road version this time around.
