MLS Redesign (FC Dallas Added)

44 posts in this topic

The MLS often has very bland kits, so I decided to take a stab at redesigning them. Starting with NYRB and NYCFC. I'm starting with these teams because I got the idea for this by trying to fix their rivalry game.

 

NYRB

New York's RedBull team is the only one in the system that doesn't have matching kits, and recently they unveiled a decent home kit, but it wasn't perfect. I changed their lines to the outline of the George Washington Bridge that connects New Jersey and New York since the RedBulls play in Newark.

NYCFC

For NYCFC I wanted to incorporate aspects of the New York City such as their flag, and pinstripes as an homage to the Yankees.

Apart from the asymmetric trim elements, that NYCFC third is just about perfect.

Love the NYRB set, especially the blue and yellow kit, looks really sharp!

Pin strips for NYCFC as a tribute to the Yankees is a nice touch I think too.

 

Also can I ask: what mockup template are you using?

The third kit for NYC is so smart, yet subtle. There's more than one way to mock the rail system on a jersey and the two stripe approach was the classy way to go. As far as Red Bulls, I'd love to see them drop the Red Bulls off the back of the jersey...and I don't think the bridge design adds anything to the set. I'd remove that and let the chest logo, which is unique to MLS, do the work there.

I really don't like RBNY's kits this year but your version is really great!

Up next is the Philadelphia Union. They have a pretty iconic look for such a new team, so this is just a little bit of house keeping.

I would love to get more C&C in here, but up next is Atlanta United FC. I thought their inaugural kits were on the right track, but not quite there, so this is what I came up with.

I really love the use of the GW bridge on the Red Bull's kit. It looks great and it has meaning behind it, and really adds to the kit.

Atlanta looks amazing, I love how you managed to make a gold colored kit look great.

The only thing I would maybe do to change them is add cuff stripes to the gold alt like you did to the away jersey.

All these kits so far have been great, especially NYCFC's third, the asymmetry works pretty well there. Excited for New England

Up next is the Chicago Fire. Home kit is a throwback, and the away kit is based off the Chicago flag

Agreed! Navy base, and light blue/red combos are both schemes I'd like to see the Fire use. One critique: I think you're squishing the numbers to be a bit too narrow.

Next up is the New England Revolution, and I don't think I really need to explain my motivation for the kits.

Revs look great. We just really need a new crest is all...

 

By the way, is the home meant to look like an overcoat?

Yeah that crest is real bad. But yeah, I wanted them to look like blue coats

Genius homage to the old New England flag in the third kit. All of these look great, no complaints from me :)
