Seeking feedback for next year's Forest City away and third uniform

Recommended Posts

I've been putting together next year's uniform for my USA soccer team and I'm requesting input for what I've drawn up so far. Any C&C is helpful as these are not necessarily the finished product.

Alternate:

Third:

For the alternate, I love LOVE the first and third (from the left) shirts, and the fourth and fifth socks. For the set of thirds, the third shirt is a thing of beauty, though I am not sure how it would look in real life. It's a fantastic idea, but I wonder how it would look in action and after the restrictions of actual production. I definitely prefer the white shorts in that set, and the socks don't seem to work at all. At a distance, you'd just get a pinkish blob and the waviness doesn't seem to work at that scale. Throw in the swoosh, which I had to really peer at closely to figure out what it was, and those socks just don't really work.

On a side note, that is a beautiful template. Where's it from?

The problem is you've created such a great set of options that it's hard to choose.

On the alternate, It's hard to see the sponsor on the first 2. The rest are pretty nice designs and I am undecided between any of the right 4. On the third, I thing the wavy stripes are a little cheesy IMO and I don't find myself really liking any of these. I'd like a simple, classy kit on the third like you had for the away but with some of the ideas you have had for the thirds.

Jordan Swege made it. Look up photorealistic soccer and it should pop up.

Here's an update on what I had been working on based on suggestions.

I've also included a few ideas for the home kit. The home kit will be collared as it's the one bit of continuity I've tried to build into the identity.

I've also included a throwback and fauxback as it's the team's 10th anniversary. One is the actual look the team had in 2007. The other is a plaid design placed within the throwback look.

This is the logo on the throwbacks.
