I love this stuff too. I believe Italy uses blue because of the Medici family, and the Dutch orange has to be because of the House of Oranje. Not sure what Germany's away green is about. What other ones do you know of?Learning the origins of national team colors can be fascinating. I went down that road many years ago and found it hugely rewarding.
This is why you're awesome at what you do!I’m kinda pissed Argentina got to purple first. Always thought that would be a killer US away color, not only unique on the world stage but a way to quietly say “we’re a blend of red and blue”. It’s getting harder and harder (for me, anyway) to wear patriotic stuff without being cognizant of the political messaging that others might infer. Thought purple would be a subtle way to address that.
But not purple, though, right?
Saved me posting exactly the same thing.I actually don’t mind the USMNT home one. I’ve never bought a home one but this might be the year because the away ones are awful. They look like a training top or one of the generic knockoff ones you’d buy at Walmart. It looks alright in the preview but when you click into the article it looks worse in full. I don’t know how a tie dye jersey can look plain but Nike figured it out
I really like it, too. It does the "busy pattern" thing - which I don't usually like - perfectly.Not usually my style, but I'm digging South Korea's away!
It really is just so disappointing. It's not that hard to design a great looking jersey with the US color scheme. Simpler is generally better. Instead we get this.I cannot stand the USA shirts. I don't know what that weird ox-yoke thing is on the home shirt. It's so disappointing. They could have a design competition among the first years at RISD or FIT and get 25 better designs in a week.
Yes. You could do either simple, minimalist, elegant - or pull off something bold like Mexico, my favorite this cycle. Instead, there's this weak-ass kit equivalent of a Matlock episode - vaguely familiar, unthreatening, and dull.It really is just so disappointing.

You missed the best part, his response to his own tweet
Totally agree. Simply moving the crest 3 inches to the left would drastically improve this jersey. Where is the number on the front of the shirt going to go? Beneath the crest?Are the current jerseys plain? Yep. But they look so much better. Collar and crest placement make all the difference
Nice catch! Please post this stuff here too @dirtynine , you don't have bigger fans anywhere than on SoSH!
