So the club I work for, Sacramento Republic FC, just released their new “fifth anniversary” third kits today.

Pretty basic black third kit, but it’s cool because I was actually heavily involved in the design process and creation of these. I started pretty early this year brainstorming with the graphic design department and we decided that out of a lot of crazy ideas we had, a black third kit was probably the easiest and had the best chance of selling quickly. A bit BFBS, but I’m actually really glad how it turned out. I made the suggestion that we should simplify the color scheme for the crest and my boss took that idea and ran with it. We got the initial crest samples in and I was blown away by how good they turned out.

I was the first to create and see these, and I have been keeping them under wraps from just about everyone for nearly three months now. I spent a ton of hours behind a makeshift wall and putting in time after hours to guarantee these wouldn’t leak. Even most of our ownership group hadn’t seen these till today.

This has been an absolutely awesome experience I’ve had with this club and it’s still a trip they’re actually paying me to do these kinds of things for them. I’ll post some pictures of the whole process. Here are a few more looks at the crest.

Oh! I just noticed. One odd thing, though.

 

This interesting hangar effect right here, doesn't exist. I remember this being a part of our earliest design process, but it got scrapped pretty quickly. Unless something changed in the four hours in between the last time I saw these and the release, this is an error on the part of the design team. Or, I'll get an e mail from my boss sometime tomorrow saying that I need to add this to the thousand or so jerseys we have. EDIT: Yup. That’s it.

Changes coming for the Fire? 

 

 

 

 

Not too much, I hope - the brand is one of the only things the Fire does right.

Huddersfield Away kit released.

Simple stripes, even width, without any pinstripes or piping or fussy details to muck them up.  What a gorgeous look, very iconic for the sport. 

 

I can see why some MetroStars fans are still pissed off at Red Bull.   Their new look just can’t compare to something like this.

So that little cuff thing is their version of the three stripes this year? The away and third look good, but that home kit needs work.

Official shots of the full Barça away:

Nice to see the blaugrana stripes from the shirt replicated on the socks as well. Overall I’m a big fan of this kit, even though the full-neon look is always a bit jarring.

 

Official shots of the Chelsea away shirt:

Big fan of this one as well, as I love when Chelsea have a yellow away.

Nike no...

Will say that sponsor does look sharp, though.

So, with the exception of the sleeves, they effectively swapped colours? LOL

Had no idea they were leaving New Balance for Nike.

Norwich:

This is almost 70s in its look. Even the club crest is very Partridge Family. Early favorite.

I feel like they should be advertising their new hit single in that picture.
