Few people thought the American Alliance of Football would be this successful so soon, and for football fans, it has provided entertaining football in the absence of the NFL and college ball. This week, the DC Sports section gets their Uni Watch pants on, discussing which team has the best uniforms in the league.

As much as I like the more unique-colored uniforms like the Atlanta Legends’ purple or the Salt Lake Stallions’ sky blue, I have to go with a more classic set of colors: the red and blue of the Memphis Express. The helmets are awesome, as the blue fades to red and the logo of what looks like a plane is blue with a white outline. It compliments the rest of the uniform nicely. The jerseys are navy blue with white lettering and red sleeves, and the pants are red. The colors go together well and I think they are the best looking uniforms in the league.

The San Diego Fleet has the cleanest uniforms in the AAF. The navy blue and yellow is the most unique color combination that doesn’t look like it was designed by a kindergartner. Although no NFL team wears anything quite like them, they still look like an NFL-quality design. No part of the uniform sticks out like it doesn’t belong and the simple colorway fits the design perfectly. All in all, the professional nature that the league hopes to create is strongly backed by this uniform.

The Salt Lake Stallions for sure have the best uniforms in the AAF. Though I have yet to watch a full game, the powder blue is hard to top. Compared to the likes of the classic Charger’s throwback, the color combination leads me to draw a parallel to the newest Lions’ uniforms (a design I like a lot). Starter did a nice job pairing the powder blue with gray, while featuring a just a tad of darker blue to pull it all together. Not to mention the powder blue wing decals and facemasks on the gray helmets. Just too clean.
