Juventus was established in 1897 and it's still to early for the logo change they've made. Sometimes 100 years isn't enough when you have something good (or you're going to something horrible).
Logo aside (I know, other than that how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?), they don't screw up their stripes as badly as Atlanta did this year (last year maybe excepted, although I kinda like those).

When the team is literally nicknamed "The five stripes", minimizing said stripes as an element to look more like every other club in the league's homogenized black shirt seems like a massive unforced error.

Adidas has produced two shockers in a row for Juventus, in my opinion. The half and half was absolutely atrocious. This year's was just... Meh.

Next year, though... Throwbacks. Love them. Too bad they won't have the scudetto.

The last two Adidas kits were far more detrimental to the "brand" than the logo redesign. Wearing badges on shirts was not commonplace in Italy until the late nineties. If you look at the kit history of the European final, you can see the Italian participants only wore the tricolor scudetto, a Champions League winner badge, or the gold stars issued for 10 Serie titles (but never a team logo) on their chests. Juventus finally added a sleeve badge for the 1998 final. To me, the black and white stripes are a far more important identifier than whatever logo they heat press on the shirt.

They included Portland and Seattle in these. I love it. As someone from the PNW I would like to have seen Vancouver included too.

Sounds like the Fire have picked winner for the new crest, but it will be months before public reveal. Predictably and excitingly, it will combine “the Chicago city flag, the six-pointed star, the letter “C” and the Florian cross.” Fan service at its finest.

I believe I have seen it. It’s good. Perhaps not a grand slam, but a solid double with a few RBIs. Worlds better than the first rebrand.

I like that A LOT. Where do the 3 little birds appear on the kit, and what's with the 3 Xs?
The 3 Xs comes from the Amsterdam city flag. I'm not sure where that element fits on the jersey - it looks like a detail, so maybe the sleave or just below the back collar?

Ahh, makes sense. I also figured it was a detail based on the images provided.

Barca's black kit that they wore on Sunday was simple, but really sharp:

Better image here that's too large to copy:

I generally dislike single color kits head to toe, but the all-black is intimidating. And I will say that Liverpool's all-red is OK considering, you know, they're the Reds. Also Fiorentina gets a pass because all purple is bold AF. But Madrid or England NT all white? No thanks.
