Their home kit is different enough that they rarely have to use those dark grey kits. Columbus is in the same boat. Too bad they didn't keep their last black kit.

The only time Seattle needs to switch from their home kit is when they're at Portland. The third kit is entirely superfluous within MLS play and there was no real reason for them to wear it for league games other than merchandising. In fact, when it was introduced, they said there were no plans to wear it for league play.

Yeah, that's practically copying Ajax. Nice enough, but not very original. The sleeves look slightly short from those pictures.

That away looks VERY Ajax-esque.

Downgrade...From Arsenal to Ajax on the 2nd. I also see Adidas is moving from bra straps to suspender straps? Greeeeat...And while I'm being critical, the Timbers need to take a page out of RSL's book and put their alternate crest on the shirt.

I wonder if they went away from the Arsenal red jersey look because of Colorado's partnership with Arsenal. This may be especially true since they actually introduced a shirt like Arsenal. The Ajax look is ok, but those stripes on the side of the green look awful.

Definitely a downgrade for Portland. I don't mind the Ajax-looking clash since, well, it's just a clash and it looks fine. Not a fan of the home shirt at all though. The white stripe going down the side of the shirt really takes away from the white sleeves on green shirt being the main feature.

Yet Colorado has adopted the claret and sky blue of Aston Villa, West Ham, and Burnley. And Real Salt Lake, who have a partnership with Real Madrid, happen to wear the colors of Barça.

Oof. That is several steps backward. Both templates are nothing special, they should have gone to the darker red for the change kit, and they've dropped the Rose Ball from the change kits, too. Nothing to like here at all.

And I'm assuming MLS will be using the same awful name and numeral font for the upcoming season.

Blech, and the contract with Adidas isn't up until 2018.

I can't believe that's the case, since the affiliation with Arsenal predates those Timbers shirts by several years.

No, this seems to me to be the inevitable downside of built-in expiration dates: change for its own sake brings an occassional massive downgrade

Yeah, those Portland kits would be miles better simply without the white stripe. Hoping they will look better in real photos instead of that unflattering pic, because right now... no thanks. I like the "You cannot stop us, we are the Rose City" detail inside the red collar, at least?

Should also answer what shirt Seattle won't wear. I've seen the 2013 Tiro shirts. That may be what they go with.

I can't believe they dropped the Rose City patch on the red kit.... So glad I just ordered both of the original kits. (For anybody interested the authentic are 50% off and replicas are 60% at the Timber's online store.)
