monochrome blue as a 2nd.

white with blue pinstripes as a 1st.

big disappointed, they needed the chest stripe.

Welp, no stripe.

Primary kits are all white, navy piping and some horizontal pinstriping (you'll see when pics are released), Giant BELL across the front, WC logo on left breast and right leg of shorts. Change kits are all navy, no piping.

Underwhelming, but I didn't expect anything crazy like the Sounders. Actually, they're about what I expected.

I actually like the white one. It's just not the single bold line that I had hope the Whitecaps would bring over to MLS.

I was hoping the chest stripe would come over, even if the "Whitecaps" across the chest would be replaced with the sponsor name. I would also have preferred a lighter blue, but perhaps they wanted to avoid being too close to the current blue used by the Canucks.

Are those diamonds on the blue jersey a standard part of the Adidas fabric? Or is that something done to echo the logo shape?

And authentic jerseys will be $120 short sleeve, 130 long sleeve. I presume there will be replicas at a lower price point.

LOVE IT.

That sublimation pattern on the blues is FANTASTIC.

Might we see the old single stripe on a throwback? I wouldn't doubt it, particularly when playing Cascadia Cup matches.

And the Nutrilite Canadian Championship matches. It's better than a pink kit!

I think those are very sharp. Easily the best kits in MLS right now. Too bad the club is :censored:.

Are these already some of the 2011 adidas templates?

I don't like mainly white kits generally, same goes for hoops, no matter if thin, thick or even worse all diffrent sizes. As mentioned, even keeping the single blue band, now with the sponsor within would have been much of an upgrade while keeping some tradition for example.

the away shirt on the other hand is superb.

I'm hoping that these diamond/VW (as in Vancouver Whitecaps) shapes are the sparehead of a cool club specific design pattern which every club who wishes to do so, can integrate on his uniforms.

The club is still a division 2 club. Let's wait and see how they fill in their roster when entering MLS.

They could sign Kaka, Messi and Ribery and Vancouver will always be :censored:.

Was hoping they'd keep the stripes, but holy :censored:, from a pure design standpoint, those are gold. I might actually buy an MLS jersey, and these two are probably the best in the whole league (Colorado's maroon may squeak ahead). The subliminal pattern is perfect, the pinstripes I like a lot, but am wondering if it would've looked better as a fixed width. Fantastic identity going into the MLS, IMO. Hopefully Portland is the same.

Also love how Adidas didn't go piping crazy, hopefully that's a sign of things to come.

These are very classy. The thin stripes on white are crisp and the subliminated pattern on the (very nice shade of) dark blue is tasteful. They're a great international football kit--not just some flashy American soccer jersey.

The whites are okay, but that navy blue with the sublimated pattern is gorgeous. Definitely ones of my favorites in MLS (along with Colorado's home, and the Philly homes)

I wasn't set on the crest but I may need to put my hate of Vancouver sports teams behind me because those kits are magnifico.

Was "meh" on the crest, but I do like the kits. Very sharp.
