So is it official or just speculation? (new alt. uniforms)
right now we're just speculating, so don't get your hopes up for anything new to be worn this upcoming 2010 season. it's said to take about 2 years for any uniform changes to be designed, processed and approved by the NFL. the 2009 new uniforms the 49ers debuted last year probably had been in the works since the middle of the Nolan era (2006/07). another example is when rams owner georgia frontiere died and the rams wanted to wear their royal blue and yellow unis in 2008? in honor of her and they couldn't cos the season had already started and even then the league made a rare concession to allow it for one game the following season (2009).
now as for the alternate/throwback the 49ers might wear, since the rumors were first heard right after the new uniform debuted last April, don't expect anything official until next offseason (2011) at the earliest, since that would be the 2 year mark. i think matt barrows wrote something last year where a new alternate/throwback would probably not be the same 80's unis the team had been wearing 1 or 2 times a year since 2002, but maybe something based on the uniforms of the 1950s or 60s. this is probably cos the 2009 and 80s look almost the same.
