If you had to make a choice over which LA Rams uniform color combination you would want for the team to wear, which combination would you choose? Choose wisely, because sometimes beauty is more than just that found in the eye of the beholder.

Since the LA Rams rolled out the new logo, colors, and uniforms in 2020, there has been a heightened awareness of the uniform worn and what the outcome of the game becomes. Is there a connection?  Well, in 1975, the book Dress for Success by John T. Malloy certainly tried to link the two.

To make a long story short, the concept was to succeed in your career, you were encouraged to dress the part to ensure that others would see you in that role. Of course, how to dress was rather regional. But the concept held that if you wanted to be an accountant, then dress like an accountant (who were notoriously known for wearing suspenders, not belts).

Fast forward 45 years, and suddenly, you find the same application confronting the LA Rams. Does the uniform of the day have a role in how the Rams play in that game?

Rams make a fashion statement in 2021

While there is a hard case to be made to establish a true cause and effect, there could be more to it if we simply confirm the uniforms worn to see if a pattern emerges? Well, we can break that down for you this year:

Week     Opponent              Uniform       Outcome

Week 1: vs Chicago             White/Sol      W 34-13
Week 2: @ Indianapolis     Bone/Royal  W 27-24
Week 3: vs Tampa Bay       Bone/Bone   W 34-24
Week 4: vs Arizona             Royal/Royal  L 37-20
Week 5: @ Seattle              Bone/Royal  W 26-17
Week 6: @ NY Giants         Royal/Sol      W 38-11
Week 7: vs Detroit              Royal/Bone  W 28-19
Week 8: @ Houston           Bone/Sol       W 38-22
Week 9: vs. Tennessee      White/Sol      L 28-16
Week 10: @ San Fran        White/Royal L 31-10
Week 11: BYE WEEK
Week 12: @ Green Bay      Bone/Royal   L 36-28
Week 13: vs. Jacksonville  Royal/Bone  W 37-7
Week 14: @ Arizona           Bone/Bone   W 30-23
Week 15: vs. Seattle           Royal/ TBD
Week 16: @ Minnesota     Bone/ TBD
Week 17: @ Baltimore       Bone/ TBD
Week 18: vs. San Fran        Royal/TBD

So the win-loss pattern of the pants is as follows:

Sol     : 3-1
Royal: 2-3
Bone:  4-0

So what about jerseys?

White: 1-2
Royal : 3-1
Bone:   4-1

It seems that the Rams are best in a uniform color scheme of Bone jerseys and bone pants, the only color combination that is undefeated this season. If that holds true, then the Rams are on pace for what appears to be an 11-6 season. Will the Rams continue to win in Bone/Bone? If so, will the team choose those colors in the playoffs?
