The rest of the world may not give San Francisco credit for having a fashion sense, but our sports ball teams should get a nod for their style savvy. In January, the Golden State Warriors introduced their super-special Lunar New Year uniforms, abandoning the team's tried and true royal blue and golden yellow for a limited-time black-red-and-gold combo. The Giants, no doubt plagued by a massive case of uniform FOMO —uniFOMO?— responded last weekend with their own #fadetoblack alternate home jersey. The look, which is  strikingly similar to the aforementioned Warriors uniforms, features a black base with orange piping and an interlocking SF on the left side of the chest. It will be one of five jerseys for the team's 2015 season, Yahoo reports. According to the Giants Twitter feed, the team will debut the new tops on May 2nd.
