When the Mets debuted in 1962, their most distinctive uniform was their blue pinstripe home uniform. Like the nearby Yankees (and many teams in MLB in the post-war era), the Mets used white/beige flannel uniforms with a three stitch wide sewn-in stripe (pinstripe uniforms earlier in the century used a six stitch wide stripe and some teams had a road pinstripe uniform on gray flannel). These uniforms were used until the switch to double knit fabric for the 1972 season.

Fun Fact: Nolan Ryan was traded to the Angels before the 1972 season, guaranteeing that any piece of double knit fabric is not from one of his Mets uniforms.
