The Saints are Throwing it Back to the 70s

There’s no doubt that the Saints have a classic look when it comes to their uniform combination. Black and gold has always been the team’s signature look and has never really changed. Sure, there have been small changes over the years like the size of the lily or the brightness of the gold, but they haven’t changed much compared to other teams in the NFL.

The Saints have often been the black top/bottom combo over the last decade and it really works for them. The black top and gold bottom combo has also been a staple for the team over the past decade, but the gold pants they wear now aren’t as bright as they were in the ’70s. The Saints are bringing back the days of Archie Manning as they plan to renew the lighter gold throwbacks for Sunday’s matchup against the Rams.

The Saints are also bringing back the classic helmets, which have a narrower-looking fleur-de-lis on the sides. This combination was the Saint’s original look until the 1974 season, when the team decided to change it. Since then, the combo has racked up a handful of sporadic returns during the 1994, 2002 and 2011 seasons before making their last appearance in the 2016 season against the Lions. Here are the original uniforms compared to the modern throwbacks.
