  1. 2018 MLS Kits

    Looks like it has the Scotland 2018 kit pattern on it.
  2. 2018 MLS Kits

    I would even add that both Nike and adidas are focused on the World Cup and major partners in this cycle. This is why you're seeing templates show up elsewhere. In years past even MLS clubs were getting decently unique kits. Looking to 2019, I think you'll notice this trend of more unique looks based on what I've seen from adidas's design positioning for next cycle.

    I do work for Sporting KC. It's a message we've received from adidas. This is also why you've seen the decline in third kits for even European clubs. Nature of the business. If adidas finds it cost effective I'm sure they'd gladly return to offering them without huge minimums.
  4. 2018 MLS Kits

    MLS does technically allow third kits. The issue is with adidas. A club must sell 100,000 units of their home kit to be eligible for a third in a single year. No one comes close to that.
  5. 2018 MLS Kits

    Same applied to last season for release dates. It's truly up to the clubs.
  6. 2018 MLS Kits

    Most jersey releases fall in Early-Mid February. However nearly every MLS team plays their preseason friendlies in their training shirts with numbers. SKC, for example, wears training tops and shorts with our real socks. Atleast they have the past few seasons
  7. 2018 MLS Kits

    I can confirm that this is not true.
  8. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    That's a fair argument. I'm just telling you what I've heard from inside the league. I would guess MNUFC could still order a miadidas templated jersey without the ventilation holes. Either way MNUFC joining the league so fast bit them in the ass a little on getting custom jerseys. Normal process takes atleast two years from start to finish.
  9. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Both are miadidas kits from what I've been told. Even replicated the home Friday after work in miadidas. Biggest things that show its miadidas from a custom adidas kits are the stitched adidas logo and embroidered MNUFC badge. MNUFC is also the only team in the league not to offer a replica version, for the exact reason they are basically wearing replicas. You can get replica youth jerseys but the difference is just no MLS patches.
  10. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    All good! Should of noted sooner. Just trying to provide any insight I can
  11. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Haha yeah. I'm guessing MNUFC will have some template jerseys for 2017. Get a custom primary or secondary next year and then be in the full rotation like every MLS team. MNUFC will still look good no doubt. For us at SKC, we start 2019 here shortly and 2018 is finalized my summer. I know a few teams around the league actually design their own kits, with guidance from Adidas of course. Thats one reason why you'll see more original designs and some more in the vain of teamwear.
  12. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Roughly two years. 2019 stuff will go into design phase in the next couple months. Of course this can vary from team to team
  13. NeatO Gang MLB Color Rush (24. Minnesota Twins)

    Been awhile since I've posted in our Color Rush thread. But next up for me is the Washington Nationals. I spent the last year living and work in the Washington, D.C. metro and this is where I got my inspiration for this jersey. George Washington's family coat of arms is the D.C. city flag and very common site around D.C. - I decided to work this into the Nationals jersey and bring back the old DC logo for this version. Next up for me after the Nationals will be the New York Yankees.
  14. 16-17 Soccer Kits

    It's certainly true. I can't speak much to it for obvious reasons, but the stripes will alternate each year according to adidas. 2018 is back to the side. 2017 will have the short shoulder stripes.
  15. 16-17 Soccer Kits

    From what I've been told, adidas will alternate every year going forward. So shoulder stripes next year, then back to side stripes.
