I didn't want to jinx anything in the WCQ thread, so I decided to go new thread here. New kits are popping up for the new club season and with the WC around the corner, we shouldn't short shrift the sartorial side of soccer. I was taking a gander at jerseys today, and I fell down the rabbit hole that is the US kit over history. What I noticed is that despite my recollection, there have actually been a ton of sweet iterations of the jersey. However, there have also been a lot of bland designs and all-whiteness that are terrible. There's also a slew of hilarious 80s/90s in there. What I'm getting at is, I think the US should settle on a template for some time and tinker. The US does not have a recognizable foundation, and I'd be happy with any number of designs to serve as a base. My top 5: 1) 2011 Third: I'm a River Plate fan so I'm definitely biased. but, the sash is such an awesome design. The pantones are spot on too, and Nike stayed uncluttered for the rest. Numbers on the front is dumb (a recurring theme for some reason - silly FIFA rule(?)). The white on blue sash kit was also dapper: 2) 2006 Away: I could do without the number in the middle on the front (?), but this is a really nice, clean look. Love the thick red stripe at the top of the sox. 3) 2012 Home: I'm a sucker for hoops. I think this shirt looks amazing and it certainly evokes the flag more closely than any other. Sticks out in a way that says 'Murrica, but in the good way! 4) 1998 Away: This could easily be higher. I like red jerseys a lot, but if the collar weren't in the way, having the parallel horizontal line on the shirt and shorts is a nice touch. 5) 1996 Third: You'll have to forgive the image (there's some weird voodoo with pictures of numbers 4 and 5 on this list), but I feel like I have to include a white one for posterity. The subtle horizontal lines look great, and if we're going to wear white jerseys, blue shorts are the only way to go to balance it out. 6): 1995 Third: Bonus! I mean that clear blue is just beautiful, although I wouldn't start a template with it.
