My eyes. They burn.

Uneven stripes + sash into the armpit + striped sash + weird curved shoulder thing = just too much going on at once.

I like a sash and I like hoops. But hoops and a sash together? No thanks.

It's worked before:

Ehh, it doesn't really work here either. It's just subtle enough that you can thankfully ignore that it's even there and focus on how perfect the Yanks look in hoops.

I'm glad you posted that - it shows precisely why the Liverpool shirt is so awful.

Nike's shirt works well because the sash is sublimated and very subtle. You have to give one element precedence.

Trying to give a sash and hoops equal weight results in Warrior's hideous mess.

Compared to the :censored:e they wore last season I'm more than happy with the Home and 3rd. The piss yellow away? Not so much..

Frankly, the home is dreadful with all that useless gold... Away and keeper are very nice, the third is meh.

That Fiorentina away is quite nice. Love that purple gradient bubble work on the sides.

I think this works well actually.

I like how they bring in the Liverpool red but subtly. Most of what you will be able to see is just the black anyways.

Change, home, change, right? *sigh*

I like the Fiorentina home with the gold accents, myself. That's a really pleasing color combination. The under-arm cuff portion is the only one that doesn't work for me.

sadly no, the owner thinks the blue birds should be red, and have a giant red dragon on the crest and that a microscopic blue bird will please the fans

True.....but it DOES work, IMO.

Take away the silly faux-sash-whatever from that Liverpool kit, and you've got a terrific look. With it, though, it's a hot mess.

For Liverpool? That's where we will have to part company. Because I don't think it works in the slightest, except as some parody of contemporary design.

That red sash that runs into the armpit does not work at all for the Liverpool kit. If it was sublimated in some way maybe. But there is too much going on there. Why does Warrior need to go flashy in all their designs?

Because if they don't, how will you know Warrior designed them? :rolleyes:

Oh no, Not for Liverpool. I was just pointing out that a sash/hoops combo CAN work when done right. What Warrior has done doesn't fit under that category.

I agree about the Chevy logo ruining the United kits.

The US hooped kits are perfection, they're better than the popsicle kits.

Liverpool looks alright, they need to lose the red stripes though.
