New for 2012: Revised Philadelphia Union Primary/Secondary Kits


Recommended Posts

Got this via my fan e-mail a couple days ago. I'm pretty sure it's all up on the team website by now, but here's a quick description:

The new primary jersey is inspired by the club's first primary jersey, maintaining a navy blue base with a gold center stripe. The new version features thicker signal blue piping, as well as a center stripe that extends to the collar and narrows as it reaches the bottom.

The new secondary jersey is a complete variation from the original gold secondary jersey, featuring a signal blue base and a white center stripe flanked by gold piping.

And the visual...


(There's a YouTube video of this unveiling as well--but I have no clue how to link to it with my BlackBerry.)

All in all, the best-looking identity in MLS (of course I'm extremely biased in that regard--check my sig) just got even better. And it looks like at some point, I'll be investing in a new Christmas present for myself.

Thoughts/opinions on the new stuff?

It's shaped like a women's jersey.

My first thought as well. That tapered center stripe is exactly the kind of cut that would be used on a women's cut replica jersey. It's probably subtle enough that you wouldn't even notice it in action, though I do feel like even that mockup gives a hint of a feminine shape due to the taper.

The change kit is a huge improvement over the old old gold one, though. (See what I did there? Clever me!)

"This jersey design is too clean, straightforward, and simple. How can we crap it up?"

Adidas designed the original one...

They sure did. Designed the original Sounders kit, too. Seen that one lately?
