Looks like light and dark purple diamond pattern on the uniforms, with maybe the digital camo on the pants?...can't really tell.
Helmets look the same as we had last year, I believe:

I see that the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor Insignia (with the Rocky head on the Globe) has been replaced with just the Rocky head on the back of the jersey.

The future conference champs will look pretty fly in those new uni's.

Another change:

The front of the jersey used to say "LEATHERNECKS".

The new jersey now says "WESTERN ILLINOIS".

Looks nice, but really would like to see "Leathernecks" on there somewhere.

Yeah, I noticed the change from Leathernecks to Western Illinois. Looks good to me either way.

Is it more common to have the name of ones school on the "away" jersey and the name of the teams nickname on the "home" jerseys? Maybe that is just an old fashioned practice. I guess plenty of home jerseys from years past Had WESTERN on them or Western Illinois :)

Also, the simple W on the helmet far and away is my favorite helmet design in my years of following the team.

The real question is there a way to buy one and not be in macomb or Illinois for that matter?

Looks very nice. In way they should keep the others one to be on a rotating basis.
