With the unveiling of Buffalo’s new uniforms over the weekend and today’s introspective look at how the final design came together in the media center at buffalobills.com, it should also be noted that the Bills players had more than their share of input in the uniform design as well.
“Lee (Evans) was part of the TV testing of the uniform and weighed in during the very early stages of the process,” said Bills senior vice president of Marketing and Broadcasting Marc Honan. “Fred (Jackson) was a help in terms of some of the fittings. Buddy (Nix) was also on hand when we went through some of the fittings.”
TV testing was an important component of the jersey design because sometimes the color of the jersey doesn’t always come through properly on television, particularly HD. The Bills wanted to make sure that wasn’t an issue with their royal blue look.
“There have been some teams that have found that their team color does not come across very well in HD,” said Honan. “Colors sometimes do not translate. So in our TV testing we wanted our royal blue to look royal blue in HD, and we were able to accomplish that.”
