The uniform of the St. Louis (Brown Stocking) nine consists of brown stockings, white flannel breeches, white knit tight-fitting shirts with short sleeves and a monogram St. L., in brown, on the bosom, white box-shape flannel cap, and white belt with Grecian stripes of brown in it. The uniform is very neat, and looks real pretty.-Chicago Tribune, March 7, 1875
The St. Louis Reds will wear red stockings, gray pants, shirts and pants trimmed with red, a small "red stocking" and the words "St. Louis" will be worked on the shirts.-Chicago Tribune, April 4, 1875
Seriously, did the writer for the Trib just call the Brown Stockings' uniforms "pretty"?
