We started wearing them in Week 3 because that was the week the entire league wore throwbacks for the NFL's 75th Anniversary. We were 1-1 in Weeks 1-2. They were worn again in Week 4 (Deion's INT against Saints), but the regular uniforms were worn in Week 5 in the loss to the Eagles. Siefert beiong the superstitious guy he was had them wear them the rest of the year.
So, including playoffs, they were 15-1 with the throwbacks and 1-2 without them.
(the only loss was the season finale vs the VIkings, but all the starters were pulled early to rest them for the playoffs, #1 seed was already clinched. they wore the white jerseys that lone loss, so they were undefeated in the red throwback jerseys)

Yes, I loved the white. Perhaps a bit darker red and less shinny. I would all change the strips on the legs. Didn't like them.
i think they should keep the same shade of red (scarlet) the black trim and shadows affect the tint already (makes the red look darker than it really is, esp on the white jerseys).
the Niners did switch to their regular solid red socks with the '94 throwbacks halfway through the season (after the BYE week) probably cos they weren't planning to wear the throwbacks all season long, and ran out of striped socks.

Those are my favorite uniforms. I HATED the Cardinal red crap we wore in the late 90's and most of the 2000's. I wish we could bring these back as a throwback, and wear them in the playoffs. I loved the white on white on the road, but most of all was the shadows around the letters. It was unique, and still looks better than all these new uniforms you see today.

Hated those uniforms even though the Niners won the SB that year. They just dont compare to the classic Red and Gold.
They dont compare to the red and gold, but theres something special about them. That whole season kind of represented the 49ers finally overcoming big obstacles. Young climbing out of Montana's shadow and finally beating the Cowboys to advance to the SB. We had nothing but success wearing them.
I would never want to wear them full time again, but I think they would be awesome as a once a year alternate.
