Clippers’ new jersey inspired by San Diego era
The Clippers fourth and final jersey of the 2017-18 season is here.
Limited only to this season, the “City” edition jersey kit commemorates the 40th anniversary of the Clippers move to California from Buffalo, incorporating colors and details inspired from the era.
The uniform has a California casual retro styling look, echoing the San Diego Clippers jersey design featuring a sky blue and orange color palette. Influenced by Southern California’s beach culture, the shorts were created to resemble a boardshort style feel, with three nautical flags sitting on top of each other vertically down the side, spelling out “L.A.C.”

Designed by Nike, the “City” jerseys are meant to “honor the fans — those who, 41 times a year, take pilgrimage at their local arena, and whose passions help define each respective team’s identity.” The look completes a four piece set for each team in the NBA, all designed by Nike. The “City Edition” joins the “Association,” “Icon,” and “Statement” jerseys.
The Clippers will wear the “City” editions exclusively in March, and for the first time on March 4 against the Brooklyn Nets. They will also be worn on March 6 against New Orleans, March 10 against Orlando, March 18 against Portland, and March 27 against Milwaukee for the final time.
