I really hope that looks better in action, because their old shirts were some of my favorites in the league.

Yikes. Portland went from having the best kits in the league, to potentially the worst IMO.

We have seen kits in the past that did not have major changes, no idea why Portland went with a overhaul. I know the Adidas contract subjects kit changes every two years, but it does not have to be this drastic.

Caps practice kits have a weird stripe on them. Also shorts are different. Was not there last year.

I really like the idea behind Jersey Week. Can't believe nothing like this has been done before in the majors (to my knowledge.) Would be shocked if the 4 other leagues aren't doing something like this in 5 years.

TIMBERS New Home: Now w/ more detail. Courtesy of @Kitnerd

I think the previous looked better.

Is it two toned like the original jerseys or is my phone playing tricks on me? Looks like the green on front is lighter than the sides/back.

I disagree. Adidas MLS kits already have the feeling of farming out one template to all the teams. This makes the lack of individualism even more stark. MLS is at the point where the league can loosen the reins and let the clubs go free a little more; instead, it seems they're tightening up.

Timbers owner Merritt Paulson just leaked the back of the new PTFC kits on Twitter. (Nice of him!) I like the detail on the back of the home, not sure why the away has pinkish Adidas stripes...

Ugh. Was wanting a Toronto FC jersey since a buddy of mine was drafted by them, but these teaser shots (the 3rd ones anyways) are changing my mind.

A third Montreal Impact jersey to be released on feb 27th but if you go back a couple pages, you'll see it, or at least, you'll see what I believe it to be.

Is it a sun on the back?

What's the name of the team again? Portand Timbers?

Whats the link between a sun and a timber?

The Timbers and their supporters have long used the "rising sun" motif. Not exactly sure of the origins but there's precedent. It was on the previous home kit's jock tag too.

OK then it makes sense. Thanks.

It's a very nice detail, I was just wondering the reason.

Apparently the official launch of all the new MLS kits won't be until February, but there have been a few leaks so far.

I have yet to see anyone mention this, but this jersey is actually based on the jerseys the Impact apparently wore in the USL a long time ago, at least that's what Impact fans from the USL days were hoping for when the logo was unveiled before the jerseys were. That striping has been featured in the crest since day one.

fast forward to 3:05

Timber Jim's (the guy who signals what songs to sing during the game) daughter passed away in a car accident. This song was her favorite, so the Timber Army sings this song every game in her memory. That's where the whole sun thing came from

Thanks for all info. I think its a very nice graphic to add to the jersey. Hats off. (It helps when you're aware of the story ;-)

Apparently this is the new Sounders kit. TAKE THAT JERSEY WEEK.

Don't think anyone will miss the silver sports bra!
