2018 MLS Kits

Recommended Posts

Having not followed the MLS long, I like the other kit better. Not sure if it is because the old kit is what I'm used to or not. In a vacuum I like this kit, though.

Interesting observation on the Philly kit. They may have made a subtle crest adjustment. Beyond the obvious color update, the stripes are now straight up and down rather than the previous version with the angled blue trim. They also removed the inner white circle outline.

This new crest matches the new shirt.

However, the club’s Twitter account shows a crest with the new colors, but the old design.

That’s a great catch.  And while tiny details, they contribute to a huge update.

It's kind of odd seeing the Union crest on the side like most jerseys instead of in the middle like they've done in the past.

The color scheme is too close to New England and the design is too close to DCU. In a vacuum it’s fine, and sub out the gold for white/red and that’s exactly what I wanted the Revs to wear this year. But it doesn’t read as Union to me.

I really want the signal blue back into the mix. Navy blue and old gold (albeit, a lighter old gold than before) are just too dark to be paired together.

I love hoops but sadly, I think you're right. The union should not ditch the thick middle stripe for hoops.

New RSL shirt, and one of the GK kit colorways:

Nice to see the blue sleeves back, but it’s still pretty plain. Hopefully they go with navy shorts to spruce it up a bit.

 

Edit- Claret shorts:

There’s some navy trim on the bottom of the shorts, at least.

 

Sigh...I really wish RSL used Cobalt shorts with their Claret tops. It would really help balance out the sleeves.

Some long-time SKC season ticket holders who apparently "know people" are saying that Sporting is considering major changes to the team's identity. No specifics have been given since they don't want to burn sources, but these people are well trusted in the tight-knit SKC online community. Many of these guys are Cauldron members and tailgate IRL. These claims are not coming from random trolls. 

I can confirm that this is not true.

In follow up to my Philadelphia Union post above, they’ve now acknowledged the crest change. Guess the social media team was just a little behind the jersey reveal.

FC Dallas teaser (showing the shorts):

And as a reminder, here’s a leak of the shorts and socks from MLS media day:

And then some predictions from 3rd Degree:

The first and third options definitely seem the most plausible to me, although I think if the Adidas stripes are on the shoulders, they’ll just be on the red background instead of having the navy from the sleeves extend onto the shoulder. Essentially their new kit could very well end up looking almost identical to the new RSL kit, except with different shades of red and blue, blue socks instead of red, and white accents instead of gold.

RSL could really use a simple tweak: Make the neckline blue,then the sleeve cuffs red,so it's essentially the classic Arsenal outfit but with navy in place of white. Would look much better.

 

Re: FC Dallas,I have it on good authority that the team badge has a white background. So none of these drafts would be accurate...

Better look at the full RSL kit:

Aside from the fact that they should’ve gone with navy shorts, they should’ve added some blue to the socks as well. Either a simple blue band on the calf or blue at the top of the socks.

Agreed - the kit needs a lot more blue somewhere to balance out the blue sleeves. Blue shorts, blue socks, something like that would be best, but even thick blue stripes on either would go a long way.

Based on a detailed description I received from an anonymous source who’s seen the new kit, here’s my mockup of the new Dynamo secondary:

There’s a couple things I had to guess on, such as the blue trim on the collar and cuffs, but it should be mostly accurate. My source also said the kit didn’t have a sponsor logo on it when he saw it, and supposedly the deal with BHP Billiton ended, so it remains to be seen whether or not they’ll have a jersey sponsor this season.

BHP Expired in December 2017 and they’re actively shopping for another shirt sponsor.

 

on your mockup, I’d adjust the center stripe to match what they’ve been trotting out on their 2018 marketing. It’s another tonal orange stripe.

Yep, I included that in my mockup. The center stripe is a lighter shade of orange. My source said that the chest stripe on the shirt looks like the top stripe on those graphics with the lighter shade in the middle, so that’s what I modeled the chest stripe after. And after showing my source the mockup, he said it looked close to perfect.
