Is this so Don Garber can find Columbus on a map? And why aren't there two stars above the U?

It’s The official “Columbus” city tourism word mark which has always had the star above the U

Right, the one-star wordmark is not a Crew thing.  The city has been using that as a kind of civic unity wordmark since the bicentennial in 2012.  In most applications the US is a different color than the COLUMB.   Y'know, like Columb-US instead of Columb-ME.

I do suppose it could've been a clever move to add a second star when applying it to apparel for The Crew.  Brand guidelines be damned!  They're champions!

If these adidas t-shirts are accurate for every team, hopefully Sporting rolls out an argyle primary kit this year. Light blue shorts are more likely, as their coach apparently doesn't care for dark blue shorts with their light blue tops.

For example, it’s already been reported that Colorado’s kit will feature that double green color scheme and Columbus’ kit will be white, so those two shirts definitely appear to relate to the new kits. And the shirts for Atlanta, Philly, and NYRB all have elements that can be found on their new kits. Atlanta’s has the five red pinstripes, Philly’s has the light blue color and yellow kite graphic, and NYRB’s has the white and grey checkered design:

A bunch of the shirts can be seen here:

While some of the Kickoff Creator shirts might have elements rumored to be in kits, are wee sure all of the shirts might be previews? 

 

IDK what to make of New England’s shirt.

 

And Houston’s shirt has its new badge, but also a James Harden logo on the sleeve.

Damn, the city even sprung for Gotham proper! No Montserrat, like all the cheap cities are using!

"The Fort" is what New England calls its supporters section, and I believe those are the section numbers of the stadium in which the Fort exists. But yeah, hard to tell how that'll relate to a jersey, other than being a hint we won't be seeing the New England flag again because the pine tree woulda been a no-brainer for this series.

Always a sucker for brand guidelines, and damn does Columbus look good. It's a solid look for the city, that lockup style with the icons are slick.

going to be A LOT of light blue mext season..

 

It's going to feel overused, which is too bad. It makes sense as a choice for a lot of teams, and unfortunately it feels least necessary for the two markets that wear it as their primary color.

Possible clue to the Timbers’ new primary kit in these graphics:

If you look closely, the green border has a half and half design, with a darker green on the left side. May or may not be a feature on the new kit, but it would be a subtle little callback to their inaugural MLS home shirt (though the shades are flipped on those graphics):

As much as I’ve loved the recent more retro jerseys, this and the inaugural away kits are some of my favorite in general. 
 

Though an even better set had to be the retro third and black-red gradient that they won the cup in.

I like those debut Timbers jerseys too, and their early MLS ones in general, but they did feel overdesigned (as did everything else in that era). Just a simple Arsenal-but-green jersey would look really nice I think, no tonal halves or crosscut saw graphics needed. Though hard to find a consistently better dressed team in MLS than Portland these last dozen years.

When it comes to jerseys, LAFC really doesn't want my discretionary income. The "linen" color of this new away kit may end up looking terrific, but the LOS ANGELES looping around the cuffs is a deal-breaker.
 


Despite the cuffs having Los Angeles on it, I actually really love this kit. It’s very clean and sharp. It’s great choice for our clash. I get why the cuffs are a deal breaker though. If the kit was any other color, they would be for me too.
 

I think this will definitely be popular among our fans. This will be the first kit I’ll have bought since our inaugural uniforms.

I own an away LAFC kit from a couple years back because I think their branding is A+ across the board...until this one. I don't think I'd have a problem wearing that shirt to game, but I would feel like a dork in it anywhere else.

Which one? The white and gold from the first season?

 

Personally, I hated their last clash uniform. The white and silver. 
 

I feel similarly. I really dislike the cuffs. It would very tacky anywhere outside of a match. But I love that color.
