Barca’s look is so iconic they have to shake things up every few years - a lot of people will get the distinctive kit, and then the return to the “classic” look will inspire another round of excitement. There aren’t many teams at that level of visual that don’t regularly play around with their signature look - maybe Celtic?

I do enjoy the thought of the Yankees coming out in plaid for a season.

California. Duh.
I actually tried to buy that keeper shirt yesterday from the club online store and it's already sold out. Going to have to wait until they get more in stock.

I wore mine all weekend. I love the look (mirrors the Juventus CL kits from a few years back).

The gold on the sleeves is infuriating. It's essentially a graphic on the DryFit (or whatever the hell New Balance calls it) material. Whenever you fold your arm and your forearm touches the graphic material, it feels for all the world like your sleeve is wet.

Ajax is your team for this, Adidas puts out basically the same shirt every year with incredibly minor variations.

This. Barca fans seem split pretty evenly on the checker shirt, but I like it although I fully admit I'm a sucker for checker football shirts. The real problem is that Barca haven't nailed their vert stripe design since 2010-2011.

Watching USA Jamaica. I love the red blue combo (Spain, Atleti) but it would be so much better with blue shorts and red socks (duh). The light patterns on the shirt aren’t my favorite either.

I had a hard time making out the numbers with this color scheme.
