Away Kit

New York City FC rolls out jet black road jersey; How’d they do?


On the heels of their home uniform looking, well, a lot like fellow City Football Group team Manchester City, the New York City Football Club rolled out road uniforms that dare to be a lot more different.

There’s a bit of a Serie A feel to the jet black uniforms with five black stripes and mostly City blue writing. There’s also some orange in the mix as well.

These will be hot in the summer. But are they hot now? What do you think?

1860 Munich’s lederhosen kits are absolutely bonkers


Oktoberfest goes a long way for the celebration of German unity, and 2.Bundesliga club 1860 Munich’s new lederhosen kits bring a different kind of unity to all football fans: the unity of wonderment.

Just look at these things: the blue checkered top, leather-themed shorts and natural white socks are a thing of beauty. Surely some will find them hideous, but don’t count me in that group.

Where do you fall on the spectrum? More importantly, how does Honolulu native and 1860 Munich player Bobby Wood feel about his new away duds?

Oktoberfest starts Sept. 20.




Chelsea unveils new away kit – white, sharp and . . . French?


Chelsea has unveiled their new away kit and it’s very . . . French?

After last year’s black strip the Blues have decided to lighten things up and go with a largely white shirt.

The shirt is a modest design, with a mid-blue trim offset by a horizontal red and blue band, matched by the trim on the sleeve. The kit is rounded off with white shorts with blue accents and blue socks.

It’s hard not to look at the kit and think that it bears a striking resemblance to the away kit France wore when it won the 1998 World Cup. That clean, sharp look has a conservative feel but when pitted against the modern atrocity that is the Liverpool away kit, it looks really sharp.

The only shame, really, is how Adidas makes that Chelsea players dunk their limbs in blue paint to show it off. That must have taken some convincing.
