They're wearing these with navy blue shorts and socks, and I actually really like that color combo. That's quite sharp. I still can't get over the massive stripes on the shoulder. I don't think that looks good on anybody. 

I agree. Looks great except for the huge shoulder stripes. Not sure why everyone didn't just opt for the LAFC tone/tone style for them. I mean especially for Cinci who could've easily used the dark blue for the stripes on the royal.

This uniform specifically makes tall playerslook shorter than they actually are.

I know we've already covered this in another thread but THAT. IS. NOT. GOLD.

That's an odd comment to make on a photo of Latif Blessing.

The stripes and the thick, high collar look like something from World Cup 98. I think that's why I don't like them. Everywhere else in sports things are getting more simple, smaller, less in your face, and then Adidas is like "HEY STRIPES!!!!!".

True, but Sebastian Blanco has the same issues as well. i think it's how bulky the sleeves look on players that have smaller arms.

Blanco is 5’6”, one inch taller than Latif Blessing. Again, an odd choice to illustrate your original point:

I'm specifically pointing out the sleeves which are bloomers compared to the tighter versions we've seen before. adidas also has normally fit significantly tighter on the players cut than the fan cut.

Here's the regular home shirts with tighter sleeves compared to the jersey he's wearing previously.

Agree that the giant shoulder stripes are a major distraction on most of the kits, but I actually really like them in this one specific case:

Probably because there's historical precedent for DC United wearing three giant stripes across their torso

I think the red shorts are the only reason this kit works. Mainly because I want those strights across the front too. It reminds me of when everyone in the NFL had to wear the Elite 51 when Nike took over. Some teams made sure to avoid the toilet bowls and the flywire but everyone still had that same cut college teams had been using for years instead of a new cut for the pro teams.

That’s gold in the same way that the Lakers’ current shade is gold. It’s not. Definitely closer to gold than Nashville’s almost-neon shade of yellow, but still not athletic gold. 
 

RSL uses more of a true athletic gold, while the Timbers have a mustardy gold, and Atlanta, LAFC, and Philly all have metallic gold.

The team calls it gold, the league calls it gold, so it's gold. It's personal choice and that's what they call it.

So by that logic Nashville’s is gold as well since that’s what they call it and what the league calls it. But we all know their shade isn’t even close to gold, just how Columbus’ shade is more of a banana yellow than athletic gold.

Here’s how I see it:

 

Teams that use gold (and is gold): Atlanta, LAFC, Philadelphia and Portland

 

Teams that use yellow (but referred to as gold): Columbus, RSL, Nashville.

Le sigh.

 

Opinions are like unproduced screenplays.  Everybody's got one, and they all break down in the third act.

 

Wait... what were we talking about?

Who at EA Sports gave the new Revolution kit white shorts??? The red shorts are the best bit. If we're forced to watch video games to pass the time we need accuracy.
