This would offer the SOX marketing the alternative color option they want to drive merchandise sales while not replicating the actual design of the 83 uniforms which IMO look horrible dated based on today's uniform styles. What worked in 1983 does not work today with belt loops, baggy long pants and not stirrups.
I have to assume the 83 throwback stuff is much more about selling the alternate logos than it is about the alternate color - the reason I think this is because they sell stuff in a bunch of different colors (even colors that the team would never actually wear) ANYWAY (just check out shop.mlb.com)
On a semi-related note, they still list the standard 1983 cap as a "authentic on-field" cap. Might just be old stock from last year, or maybe they'll use both that AND the "new" batterman cap?
