2021 brings a new home kit for Atlanta United. I know gradients/fades are gimmicky and don't hold up well over time, but I don't hate it in this context for some reason. I'm at least hoping Atlanta goes back to the 5 stripes aesthetic that they're originally known for. I also hope they do something special for their 5th anniversary playing in ATL to make this edition more fun and collectible.

Is there some significance to there being five stripes?

Their inaugural uniform had 5 stripes, as does the logo, so they became known as “The Five Stripes”. The identity coincided with great success as well, so the fan base is partial to it.

Understandable. Doesn’t give them much leeway with shirt designs though.

True. But, I don't think they'll always stick with a 5 stripes design for their shirt. Atlanta can still be "The Five Stripes" because of their logo. I just like the idea of a 5 stripe design for an anniversary kit for nostalgia.

As a non-traditional looking kit (due to the gradients), I like it. I think the gold Adidas stripes on the side is such a good move on kits with vertical stripes, since the shoulder Adidas stripes are really intrusive there. Did you make the logo with the gold spike and the A interlocked? I don't think I've seen it. I think the details of it might get a bit lost on the sock as is.

Atlanta United came up with the logo that appears on the socks, or at least it’s approximately what they did. I’m not married to it being on the socks, I just thought it needed another element to tie in better with the top.
