Once a Giants uniform, always a Giants uniform.
The team announced Wednesday that it will bring back its classic home uniforms of the 1980s and ’90s for two games this season.
The set includes a navy helmet with the "Giants" wordmark replacing the "NY" logo and a scarlet stripe with white facemask, a blue jersey featuring red trim complementing white numbers and white pants with blue and red stripes. The inside of the jersey collar also features the slogan “Once a Giant, Always a Giant,” a favorite saying of team alumni attributed to late owner Wellington Mara.
The Giants unveiled the uniforms with a video featuring Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor handing off the old-school jersey to star running back Saquon Barkley.

“This era obviously still holds a special place in the hearts of Giants fans,” team president John Mara said in a news release. “Our teams during that time featured legendary players, some of the best in our franchise’s history. And these uniforms remind us of what was accomplished through those years. We are thrilled to wear that uniform again.”
The uniforms are scheduled to be used for two “Legacy Games” at MetLife Stadium: Oct. 2 against the Bears and Dec. 4 vs. the Commanders. Those games will have other throwback features, including the end zone designs used in Super Bowl XXI and graphics of the era adorning the walls around the field. The first 30,000 fans at each game also will receive an era-appropriate collector’s edition pennant.
