    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    Yeah, I agree. As a general rule, I really love matchups with light/dark/light vs. dark/light/dark, and this is no exception. Sweden could’ve, and some would say should’ve, gone with their yellow/blue/yellow primaries, but their secondaries make for a better overall contrast with Germany’s traditional white and black home kit.

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    Barça away: Nice to see the blaugrana colors incorporated on the ends of the sleeves, as well as the Catalan flag detail on the back neck.

    Iran’s away kit is red, which is why Spain will be forced to wear their light grayish blue/white away kits.

    Just wait until Iran/Spain later when BOTH teams will be in their away kits for seemingly no reason at all.

    Just as with Germany/Mexico, Brazil/Switzerland features both teams in their traditional home kit combinations. Nice to see a couple of matchups without any needless changes. Also, and I know I’ve said this before, but this iteration of Brazil’s classic home kit is just beautiful. Surely one of their best home kits in recent memory.

    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    Germany/Mexico looks really nice with both teams in their traditional home kit combinations. The earlier game between Costa Rica and Serbia was a rather ordinary kit matchup, with Los Ticos is red/blue/red and Serbia in all-white.

    Croatia/Nigeria will be red/white/white vs. all-green. With Croatia as the designated home team, the Super Eagles had no choice but to go with their secondaries, but it’s still a shame we’ll have to wait until their second game to see their beautiful primary kits. This still should be a pretty good looking game though, and certainly one of the most visually interesting matchups we’ve seen thus far.

    France’s keepers were in red, so FIFA likely made them change to the blue socks to avoid a sock clash.

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    Real shot of the Man City away: Big fan of this kit, though it’s a shame the socks are neon yellow/green instead of navy. I’m guessing they’ll end up using the navy socks from the home kit as clash socks, though:

    I don’t necessarily disagree with you, but this new shirt is inspired by their ‘86-87 shirt, which was also made by Hummel:

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    I’m pretty indifferent towards the logos, but the uniforms are a big swing and a miss, IMO.

    2018 MLS Kits

    The Timbers are wearing their white kits at home tomorrow for the first time this season: They’re playing the Galaxy, who will obviously have to wear their navy secondaries. I’m hoping the Timbers go with the white/green/white combo again as I’d say it’s slightly superior to the all-white. Both are great looks, though.

    At least it’s on the sidelines, though, and not opposite the arena logos.

    In addition to the special Finals warmups, both teams are wearing new gold-accented socks:
  17. You’re certainly right about Portland being a craft beer town, but there’s also a very intimate and unique coffee scene that’s developed here as well. You might call it a “craft coffee” culture, similar to the emergence of craft beer. Portland has about 40 or so coffee roasters, with several more in the surrounding areas.

    NBA Changes 2017-18

    The uniform matchups for the Finals are now up on the LockerVision site: https://lockervision.nba.com/# Games 1 and 5: Warriors (white) vs. Cavs (black) Games 2 and 7: Warriors (The Town) vs. Cavs (white) Games 3, 4, and 6: Cavs (black) vs. Warriors (white) So, unless something changes, every game will be white vs. black (technically the Warriors’ The Town alts are dark grey, but whatever). The Cavs will also be wearing their white uniforms for the first time in the playoffs for Game 2 (and Game 7 if the series somehow gets to that point). Also, both teams have special “Finals Home” and “Finals Road” warmups. The home sets consist of white jackets and pants, while the road sets have black jackets and pants. Both sets have the same black shooting shirts:

    2018 MLS Kits

    Considering their stadium has been named Providence Park for a few years now (and was previously named PGE Park in the A-League and USL days), and that the stadium was used extensively for baseball prior to the renovations for MLS, I’d say that idiom is appropriate. And yeah, aesthetically the Timbers have been near the top of the league for a few years now, especially with the move to the old gold on the kits. I keep hoping (and expecting) them to move to the old gold full time across all platforms, not just on the kits, but so far they haven’t fully taken that step yet. They do seem to be moving in that direction though, and rightfully so because the old gold is so much better than the mossy yellow-green. Overall, even though I really liked their various Rose City red secondaries, I’d say their current primary/secondary kit combo is the best they’ve had since moving to MLS.
