The New York Knicks unveiled their City Edition uniforms last week with the help of Jalen Brunson and Josh Hart. Some fans don’t like the double ‘New York’ design on the front of the jerseys, while others are happy to see the team return to their late 1990s, early 2000s style.
The reason for the double ‘New York’ on the front is because of the saying, “the city so nice, they named it twice,” as well as Frank Sinatra’s infamous song, “New York, New York.”
Ronnie Fieg, KITH founder and the Knicks’ Creative Director, went in-depth about why the team selected the design and what went into it.
New York will wear the jerseys for the first time on Wednesday against the Spurs, which will also be the team’s second annual KITH night. The floor at MSG will also reflect the City Edition style.
