The New USA Kit

LandonClassic

I love this. It's a new twist on an old-school look and much more interesting than the last kit; this one is dope enough that I will actually wear it when it isn't gameday. The warmup top is fresh to death as well. Maybe it's just because the Vancouver games are happening right now but there is something very Olympian about them. Too bad it will be hot as balls on the East Coast during the World Cup otherwise I would rock the hell out of it.

Are they going to add "princess" to Landon's? Kidding, but it would fit so nicely.

I don't really like the socks and the number placement is kinda strange. Other than that I dig it.

I actually don't mind the white ones. I'm also hearing there is 3rd jersey that's red? Anyone know anything about that?

Brian,

Mock-ups I saw on other sites showed a red kit with a blue sash and white piping. Looked good, I though. Actually, I really like all of these. I wouldn't mind at all if this stayed the permanent American look, then again I like the current ones, too, and feel the same way about them.

I don't get the criticism of the sash from people. It doesn't look Miss America to me; it looks distinctive, something sorely lacking from a lot of recent US kits.

This was leaked back in November:

http://www.majorleaguesoccertalk.com/usa-world-cup-2010-home-jersey-leaked-photo/7152

It has pictures of the Home, Away and 3rd jersey. The Home is exactly the same, and the Away is pretty much the same as the one leaked today (darker blue, nike swoosh is red not blue).

cesttoutvrai, I assume this might be the link you are referring too?

Interesting you mentioned, Olympian --

Apparently, Nike also used the sash for the curling togs. I dig our curling team, so I'm cool with it.

somewhat related.

The USA olympic hockey team wore a similar replica jersey of the olympic team who took part in the "Miracle on Ice" that upsetted the #1 ranked USSR. Result? They upsetted the #1 ranked Canadians on their own soil.

Now our boys are gonna go old school again in wearing a similar jersey resembling the one that beat England....this is the stuff of dreams

I'm just glad they're not grey.

Too bad the white doesn't have a red horizontal stripe, to mimick the 1950 World Cup jerseys

I've always thought they should make the socks red and white "cat in the hat" horizontal stripes to resemble the stripes on the flag.

When are they going to play with a Red Top? I hate the blue or white tops. The "RED", white and blue. Its the first color.

The sash says beauty queen and Latin American to me. I think the kits are getting worse. I loved the vert blue/red stripe on crest side from a couple years back.
