I can't believe that Brescia Calcio's beauties haven't been posted yet!

Oh my.

But these are actually just for the womens team. That's why there is the scudetto on the shirts.

I did wonder about the scudetto! The Brescian menfolk ought to follow the fine example set by the ladies.

The male team switched to Joma (their fourth sponsor in four years), and it has pretty good shirts. I especially like the inlined chevron, which is a nice innovation for a pretty classic kit. Moving the sponsor below the chevron was a good idea too

120? They couldn't wait for the century-and-a-quarter mark? Had to jump right in at 120?

Those are actually from the beginning of this year. What's new is that the league is pushing those to the next level, by inviting anyone to object to their registration.

Those marks were originally not going to be part of the Chivas sale, then they were thrown in, and now MLS is at the very least keeping them as options for the new owners to use.

Bigger versions:

I have heard that the team has had a strong reaction to their temporary name and red/black color scheme, and is considering keeping them. This would seem to support that.

I would highly doubt either of these ends up as a final product though. Maybe similar elements..

Yes, but it's interesting that MLS is now finally proceeding with the registration. They wouldn't need to do that if they were going to simply go with "similar elements", because whatever new mark they come up with will have to go throwing the process from scratch.

Unless perhaps they're just looking to see if these raise any objection, set some parameters for the replacements. But I don't know.

Here's the Karlsruher SC's 120 years anniversary kit!

They didn't release another pic yet.

Is it wrong that I love the Hummels chevrons but hate the Adidas stripes?

I suppose that the chevrons are more of a design feature and less of a trademark than three bland stripes.

What up with them laces, though? This ain't hockey over here.

This also isn't the first kit I've seen with the lace-up thing going on, though...just what is the total deal with that lately (or at all)?

I don't get the weird bend in the cross. Seems a simplified version could be nice. This isn't "right" but just to get the idea across.

Old-timey soccer jerseys used to have them, too. So you sometimes see them on throwbacks.

Personally, I'm hoping that LAFC goes with this mark, minus the gradients. I also wouldn't be averse to having the soccer ball removed from said logo and having the "F.C." - rendered in the same font size as "LOS ANGELES" - moved into the space the ball occupied.

I believe that would be a phenomenal badge.

I'm in the same boat with you. Maybe because Hummel doesn't stick it on every piece of equipment. It seems to be organic to the kits instead of a requirement for the shirt.

The Gold Cup logo has been modified for 2015.

Top, as used in 2013. Bottom as will be used in 2015.
