A new look for the Buccaneers? I’m in. Though I’m not a fashion designer, that didn’t stop me from having fun with this assignment. Inspired by the golden age of pirates and keeping with the team’s current color scheme, I sought to create a uniform fit for any swashbuckler of the gridiron.

The home jersey is part Tampa Bay Buccaneers, part "Pirates of the Caribbean."
