  1. The France vs Argentina game about to kickoff might just be the best attired sporting contest of all time, and I'm not exaggerating one iota. Amazingly beautiful kits on both sides. https://www.gettyimages.com.au/photos/france-argentina-rugby?events=775390719&family=editorial&phrase=france argentina rugby&sort=best#license
  2. Liking the Macron jerseys, in particular the Italy away kit. Only complaint with it is that it looks designed to slap a sponsor's logo on as soon as the tournament ends. Also high marks to France and Argentina. I kinda get what Japan was going for but it doesn't work for me. For a company that is the iconic supplier of rugby kits, Canterbury really seem to be a bit off with their designs.
  3. That Cincinnati crest looks like it should be on a sign outside a gas station. (This is not a criticism, just looks like a 1950s-ish era logo you'd see on old memorabilia)
  4. There's something ever so subtly nauseating about the sleeves of the Man City kit. Hard to explain but the difference in shadings between pattern and sleeve needed to be either more subtle or more pronounced, its kind of stuck halfway in the middle and doesn't work.
  5. To me the double stripe is more of a Lyon thing (red/blue on white) and it looks weird on PSG.
  6. PSG is a team which could have such an iconic look, but does everything possible to sabotage that by never using it anymore.
  7. Love that blue alternative kit. Such an underused colour combination outside of the various British leagues.
  8. Late to the party on LAFC with an unpopular opinion... the basic black with metallic gold trims is a little boring and monotone, so the coloured sponsor logo actually lifts the kit as a whole.
  9. Colorado probably wore the yellow kit to avoid the white shorts/(partly) powder blue socks clash. Clashes aren't only about the shirt.
  10. I like the Asheville City badge. Maybe it needs a third colour in there to make it pop a little, but its well executed.
  11. It helps that Justin Gatlin's clouded past makes him the villain in the story.
  12. There's a difference between rugby and the sport the Melbourne Storm play (rugby league) so the logo needs a tweak.
  13. My alma mater, University of Queensland in Brisbane has a number of James Birrell designed brutalist style buildings; my accommodations at Union College perhaps being the best of them. Built from the late 1960s through the 70s it snakes through the existing trees from the site to prevent clearing. The original caravan style windows pictured above have now been replaced by more modern styles but the building remains otherwise the same. Some might find the concrete construction a little hard on the eyes, but when you see it amongst the very green landscape it's almost like a scene from some post-apocalyptic film where the forest has taken back over the city ruins.
  14. I'm coming around on the Nike kits. IF you have to do monochrome shirt/shorts the contrast socks give a nice bit of colour. But the sleeves are still stupid.
  15. Hard to maintain that throwback aesthetic and cram the usual 2-3 sponsors on to every piece of kit.
