Why Are They Called “Jerseys”: Brief History of Sport Shirts
Have you ever wondered why they call a sports uniform a “jersey”? As a person who has lived in New Jersey and played sports his entire life, I can’t believe I’ve never given this any thought until now. So after some quick research, let me drop some knowledge on you…
Back in the olden days, basketball uniforms were made out of a fabric called “jersey” which was comprised of knitted wool. (Imagine playing a heated game of hoops in wool?) And why was the fabric called “jersey” you ask? Well, the material was produced, since medieval times, on the island of Jersey, which is the largest of the Channel Islands off the coast of France. Confused yet?
Oh, so, Jersey, like the fabric!?
So jersey was the actual material used to make the uniforms for basketball, and eventually the uniform just became known as “a jersey.” Then other sports, including football, just picked up using the term “jersey” to describe their uniforms…and there you have it.
Have I said the word “jersey” enough in this post? No? Here’s one more then: jersey.
