The Washington Commanders announced on Tuesday they are reintroducing gold pants to their uniform rotation this season, an option that has not been available since they rebranded in 2022.

The franchise has a rich history with gold pants, dating back to when the Boston Redskins moved to Washington D.C. in 1937, as they captured the NFL championship in 1937 and 1942 and appeared in Super Bowl VII in gold pants.

Washington moved away from gold pants in 1979, opting for white or burgundy pants instead, but they returned in 1994 as part of the NFL’s 75th season celebration, when the Redskins wore a 1937 throwback design in three games.

Gold pants also made appearances in several throwback games during the 2002-03 and 2007 seasons before returning on a regular basis in 2010. They were last worn in a 24-0 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles to end the 2018 season.

Since then, the franchise has retired its controversial nickname, played two seasons as the Washington Football Team and rebranded to the Commanders, who unveiled new uniforms in 2022 with burgundy, white or black pants.

The Commanders did not reveal which games they’ll wear gold pants or if they’ll be paired with their white road or black alternate jerseys, only that they plan to release their uniform schedule at a later date.
