As for the uniforms, the Suns announced a new “Civic Pride” look that they will wear 13 times this season.

According to Suns.com

The new alternate “Civic Pride” uniform brings that great tradition to the newest generation of Suns by using a similar PHX in white across the chest of the jersey.

The color of the uniform hearkens back to another group of the Valley’s favorite Suns, too. The black jersey and shorts pay homage to the alternate set that debuted during Sir Charles’ reign during the 1994-95 season. The purple and orange piping along the neckline is also a call back to that beloved uniform.

The numbers and font along with the shorts tie in the current iteration of the Suns uniforms, creating a look that honors the past and present of the franchise.

The Suns were the first franchise in Phoenix and are the only one with the city name across their chests
