1965 Steelers oddity

It appears that some of the Steelers wore pants that had grey stripes instead of black.

I would be willing to bet that this was not intentional but rather older pants upon which the black had faded due to bleach to clean the white parts. The Steelers had been wearing those particular pants for every game from 1960 up through 1965 and were also worn as the road-white pants for 1959 as well. Its entirely possible that some players used the exact same pair of pants for that entire duration.
