A wishbone “C” crest was added on the left. There were many variations, including a red spoonhead placket, then just a plain red spoonhead.

“Cleveland” remained on the front of the road jerseys. It was worn with navy pinstripes early on, but shed those in 1939. The front script was rendered in both navy and red.

The small “C” hat was worn on the road. The wishbone “C” in red and white was worn during this run as well.
