I don't think Inter Milan should necessarily own the patent on blue/black stripes. For what it's worth, the kit commemorates Montreal Impact's 20th year, and I believe they wore this style of kit back at the beginning. I wish this would have been their home kit from beginning rather than another plain blue kit...

Much like Houston, I don't quite understand what is the point of a third jersey being largely the same color as the home jersey.

That point aside, that is a very good looking jersey for Montreal.

That's my main gripe about Sporting KC's home and away kits. I've really grown to dislike their home "Sporting Blue", and they simply don't wear the dark indigo enough. I'd like a little more distinction, so a 3rd kit would be great for them.

Yeah i've always thought it'd be cool if the dynamo do 3rds that resemble past houston sports teams, like luv ya blue, maybe with red white shoulder stripes, or something like the old astros, and the current ones kinda resemble the rockets so theyre alright, but yeah i mean i think they should just get creative and have fun with them!

It's not without precedent for teams to wear their thirds at home at least some of the time, e.g. Houston, Portland, Seattle... no doubt we'll see the stripes at Saputo at least part of the time. Maybe come 2014, they'll hold on to that as a home, and introduce a new white away and bring back the pink and black (from the USL days) as a third? We can dream.

One of the guys who covers the Whitecaps tweets the 'Caps might tweek their jerseys next year.

According to the MLS/Adidas deal, each jersey changes after two years. So the 'Caps are due for a new home and away for 2013, but they'll presumably retain the (lovely) brown third kit.

Does anyone know why this is?

I mean granted, this is hardly unique to MLS soccer, but in my mind I just question the impact that has on establishing brand equity—particularly amongst the more storied franchises (The Crew, Galaxy, and DC United automatically come to mind), and even clubs whose identitirs lend themselves perfectly to a timeless design. The inaugural (sp?) Philadelphia Union kits were a perfect example...but, due to this agreement, they had to get new kits, and in the process went from classy and distinctive to run-of-the-mill and largely forgettable.

I've just always been curious about that.
