1914 “Zora” Black Faux-back Uniform
- Based on the uniforms worn by the 1914 Tennessee Volunteers football team coached by Zora Clevenger. Easily one of the more unique uniform designs in Tennessee football history.
- Clevenger was UT’s head football, basketball, and baseball coach until 1916.
- It’s not an exact throwback replica to the 1914 uniform since the original had brown pants, lacked jersey numbers, and featured brown leather helmets. But it stays true to the original design concept.
- Was one of the last uniforms worn before the orange jerseys debuted in 1921.
- Thin orange stripes appear on the sleeves as they did back in 1914
- The orange stripe motif is also used on the helmet stripe, pants, and socks.
- Helmet is matte black with a sublimated black leather texture to give the appearance of an old school leather football helmet.
- A rarely used, barely seen, vintage style interlocking UT on each side of the helmet is featured to complete the way back, faux-back helmet.
- Vintage style number font on the jersey and shoulders.
- The vintage University of Tennessee shield logo is on the base of the collar and placed on the hip. The shield logo also has the University crest on it.
I’ve always wanted to see a chromed out orange helmet.
I still like the smokey gray, especially close to Halloween.
