Now if the alternate were yellow or white instead of black/red.

The new Timbers' primary kit has been officially unveiled. Apparently the kit "is made of a new engineered flannel material that creates the checkered look and feel." They absolutely nailed this IMO, the only flaw is the MLS badges not matching the color scheme of the kit, but it's a minor issue considering how beautiful and classy the rest of the kit is.

That look is incredible. Only hope the Sounders can unveil something close to that good.

That Portland kit is a thing of beauty.  I love that it seems so simple from a distance but has the nice "plaid" or "box" detail when seen up close.  Really classy kit.   Let's hope that the rest of MLS is so lucky.

Nice look, but it's a shame they've gone all-green.

I only just just noticed that the MLS patches are in the old fluoro green -- odd choice. Wonder if there was a last minute change somewhere?

We talked about this before - don't know why they didn't change the colors, but doubt that it reflects a last-minute anything, since they did change the colors of the badge.

Portland has to be the best team in MLS when it comes to jerseys.

They've phased out the wordmark in the logo so I assume the next change is phasing out the fluoro in favor of gold (right move I'd say) ... just odd that they couldn't do it there. No rule states the MLS jersey patches have to match your primary logo colors.

The wordmark's been gone for a couple years (or at least that version was relegated to being a secondary a couple years ago).  But we don't know if this color change is permanent or not, and even if it isn't we don't know why they didn't recolor the league patch as well.

 

Personally, I think the Timbers' league patch is a mess, if only because that's the only white left on the jersey.  Really stands out.  I also fear for LAFC, whom I expect to have an all black-and-gold shirt, again with the only white being on the league patches.

I'm presuming that 1889 refers to the founding of Orange County?

 

I like elements of each of them.  I'm especially drawn to the "OCSC" in the bottom-center - that wonderful angle on the "SC" makes all the difference.

I wish teams had freedom to recolor their league patches on primaries (I'm guessing they don't?) like they do on secondary shirts, like this one.

We have no reason to believe that they don't, considering that the Red Bulls and Galaxy have each done just that.

How can they trademark the bottom left one that is a blatant copy of Inter Milan?

The first one and the one in the bottom middle are very slick. I like the slight tattoo-ey look. B)

 

The others look a bit choppy though. Like unfinished rough drafts. In the second logo on the top row the C is noodling through the O like it's trying to win a pasta competition. The first one on the bottom was probably just about to be sent out when they discovered the C was missing in the center and quickly slapped it on. And lastly, on the bottom left they should have refined the cutout at the C a bit more to make it less obvious that it is just a cut O.
