Tommy Hilfiger Designs New Cowboys Jersey Concept For ESPN The Magazine

The current edition of ESPN The Magazine is the style issue, and one of its features is fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger's concept for a redesign for a new Cowboys jersey (as well as the Lakers, Yankees and Canadiens, which you can see here).

Says Hilfiger in the sports publication: "If you think about America, the symbol that pulls us together as a country is the flag. Compared to the original Cowboys' uniform design, we love the repetitive feel of the small stars representing a different state that each of the players may come from."

He tells the magazine that the stars "represent the team as a whole, while the helmet represents the player as an individual." And he went with the idea of "making each player a star and enlarging it to include his number." That way, he says, all the players are "easily identifiable on camera, even when they're piled up on the field searching for a fumbled ball!"
