When it comes to the Bucs uniforms, it is out with the old and in with the new. The changes are pretty drastic and, as expected, so are some of the opinions.
Words like "yuck," "hideous," even "terrible" popped up on social media.
The new duds unveiled Monday include dark shoulder pads, a hint of old-school orange and sharp numbers with a reflective border, a first in the NFL.
The styling appears fresh and sleek, but what do we know? That's why we found local designer Dolly Donshey, someone with an eye for what's in.
We had her tackle the new uniforms. She says despite the criticism, these are pretty fashionable.
"I love the color blocking. I think it was smart to use a little of the color from the past traditional color years," she said.
She's not a huge fan of the white jersey but overall she wouldn't change much.
"They look a little more muscular. It's a little sexier. The design of the number, I know fans don't like it, but I think it is really cool edge," Donshey said.
The Bucs paired with Nike for the new look and its the first major change in 17 years. The team calls it trendsetting. Agree or disagree, one thing is for sure: like most art, the beauty of this style is in the eye of the beholder.
"It'll grow on people. I think people will come to love these jersey, it's new and modern," Donshey said.
