In terms of sheer ugliness, it’s going to be tough for any team’s throwback uniforms to rival the bumblebee convict duds that the Steelers loosed on humanity this past Sunday. To be honest, the ones that the Redskins will be using later this season aren’t actually all that bad, even if they closely resemble Boston College’s look.

A more detailed look at Washington’s throwbacks were provided by the team this week. One aspect that was heretofore unmentioned is that the uniforms sport helmets made to look like the old leather helmets that football players wore back in the days when we didn’t mind so much if they died on the field.

This will be the rare example of something embraced by hipsters and old people alike. Hipsters love few things like fake vintage apparel. And old people love things they remember about bygone eras.
