Recommended Posts

Love the Chicago kit, only wish the thin top and bottom white stripes were Chicago flag blue instead of white.

Gotta say i am surprised there was not a movement to add a fifth star to commemorate the birth of Coach Ditka.   Da Cotch!!!!!

Thats just retrofitted marketing speak designed to support the choices already made.  You’re not supposed to actually take it seriously. 

 

Maybe so, but still better than just "we want it to be this colour, so deal with."

I'm sure there's also a movement to add a fifth for the Cubs winning the World Series.

Which is, funnily enough, the English translation of what they said.  ;)

Have a picture of the Minnesota United replica kit that I found at the Downtown Target location- although I am new to this site and can't figure out how to attach an image to the post if someone can help

You can't upload images directly to the boards anymore. You'll have to upload to a third-party hosting site like Imgur and then copy the URL for the image and paste it in the reply box (it should automatically embed the image).

Of their four MLS Championships (1998, 2000, 2003, 2006), the first and third were doubles (Open Cup and Supporters' Shield, respectively).

Their first championship (1998) was a double with the US Open Cup.  Presume that's what they mean, since they also have a 20-year logo for it.  Maybe they're not counting the stars in a linear row, but working outward from the center?

 

Is is rather appropriate that they have four championships to commemorate.

They only have one MLS championship (1998). They have four Open Cup titles (‘98, ‘00, ‘03, and ‘06), and one Supporters’ Shield (‘03).

Can confirm that's legit; authentic has the henley collar with the red button as in the teasers. No stripes on the back.

Also, the crest on the authentic won’t be contained in the black shield shape.

Hmmm, initial thought is that of disappointment. I don't think I'll be buying a replica or authentic of this design.

Houston as well:

Looks like my source’s description wasn’t entirely accurate. I actually like this version better though, as the chest stripe is a nice nod to the Astros’ tequila sunrise design. I will say though that the Adidas logo would look better if it was orange.
