EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants will be changing their pants when they wear their alternate uniform this season.
The Giants announced Tuesday that instead of their traditional gray pants, they will wear white pants and blue jerseys for undisclosed select games. The team said it will not wear the white pants with their white jerseys.
The white pants will have a thin red stripe bordered by gray and blue stripes.
Under NFL rules, the Giants have the option to alternate three pant styles in their uniform system. They last wore white pants in 1999, the final season they had "GIANTS" on their helmets in italics and all-white road uniforms. The following year, the Giants began wearing uniforms that featured the distinctive "NY" on the helmets and gray pants.
