The Association uniforms pays tribute to the geography of Memphis, with the Mississippi River anchoring the City on one side. The long flowing lines that fall down the side of the jerseys and wrap around the shorts are reminiscent of the intersection of road, rail, river, and runways, taking its line forms from the evolved inline wordmark.
The "Beale Street Blue" draws your attention to the collar with the oversized bear logo on the left side of the shorts paying tribute to the first season in Vancouver and Memphis. On the belt and across the chest of the Icon Edition has the newly-designed inline type pulled from the neon signs found on Beale Street.
The new Statement Edition unis feature the "Beale Street Blue" along with the iconic inline type and blue collars in honor of Memphis entertainment and culture.
"As with the Association & Icon Editions, this uniform creates an asymmetrical silhouette and utilizes the oversized bear icon on the left side of the short for strength and weight. The asymmetry is created by utilizing a pattern of the shipping container mark through the collar, belt and right short hem, similar to the Pacific Northwest trim used in Vancouver in 1995/96. This pattern is further highlighted by the use of Grizzlies gold accents along each piece." - Grizzlies
