The Detroit Pistons are going to be one of the most interesting teams in the NBA to watch this season, with lots of young talent—like Andre Drummond, Reggie Jackson and KCP—and SLAM favorites like Brandon Jennings, too. By the looks of these new “Detroit Chrome” alternate jerseys, they’ll be playing in style. Scroll through the photos above to get a closer look at the chrome-tinted uniforms, which the Pistons will wear seven times this season.

Here’s more info on the inspiration behind the jerseys, from the Pistons:
The Detroit Pistons will sport a new alternate jersey during the upcoming 2015-16 season.
The inspiration for the Detroit Chrome jerseys came about as a way to honor our coolest cars from the past and the cars of the future. Detroit is universally known as the auto capitol of the world, where chrome leaves an indelible mark on the cars we create. The uniforms feature a matte chrome base color with clean simple lines inspired by the classic muscle cars that have roared up and down Woodward Avenue for decades. The navy trim and Detroit emblazoned across the chest represent the blue collar work ethic that the auto industry and region was built on.
These jerseys join the current lineup of the home white Pistons, the away blue Detroit, and the navy Motor City jerseys which are worn on Motor City Sundays.
All of the jerseys have the gold band on the neck honoring the Pistons 3 World Championships.
