Alliance of American Football

On February 9, the Alliance of American Football, or AAF, kicked off its inaugural season and the players looked bomb. Much-loved athletic brand Starter partnered with GIII Sports to provide official on-field apparel and game-day uniforms for all eight AAF teams. Luckily for you, the entire collection is available to cop. 

The replica jerseys, gear and satin varsity jackets (our personal favorite pieces, highlighted here) are available on AAF.com and at your local Dick's Sporting Goods.

Here is a sneak peek at the eight teams' new varsity jackets, retailing for $130, and insight into the inspiration behind their logos.

Orlando Apollos

The Orlando Apollos took inspiration from two things: The cliché of being forever sunny and the Greek god who embodies that notion. Apollo, the god of the sun, is depicted in bright shades of orange on a navy background, to define a new generation of football for Floridians.

Birmingham Iron

Three things are needed to make steel: Iron ore, coal and flux. Three colors, inspired by the three ingredients, are needed to embody the rigor of Alabama's football fans: Black, dark gray and light gray. The industrial-looking football logo evokes a never-tarnishing sense of strength.

San Antonio Commanders

Perhaps the most striking of the bunch, the design for the San Antonio Commanders uses a cherry red to make the sword pop. The hues call on the official logo of the city and Texas' state flag, both a similar maroon. We predict fans will love this one.

Arizona Hotshots

The Arizona Hotshots logo is very fireman-esque. Paying homage to wildland firefighters, aka "hotshot crews," the design features red flames and crossed yellow axes called Pulaskis, cutting and digging tools used by firefighters. We're here for it.

Salt Lake Stallions

Meant to recall the hood ornaments of your favorite classic cars, the Salt Lake Stallions logo uses blues and silvers to recall the city's prime attraction. You guessed it—the Great Salt Lake.
