Objectively speaking, besides NYCFC's road kit, for previous or existing jerseys this is one of my favs:

The glorious work or art was an actual kit for The Caribou of Colorado. Which later became MLS expansion team Colorado Rapids.

My second favorite MLS shirt has to be either NYCFC away or Orlando home.

FYI the Caribou died a long time ago in the NASL. The Rapids were an entirely new team that started with the MLS in 1996 and have absolutely no connection to the Caribou in any way, except they are in the same city.

PS This was a April Fools picture. Pretty funny.

i guess that's what happens when you trust random sites from google searches. Thanks.

1. CARIBOUS OF COLORADO, 1978 HOME KIT
Allow us to regale you with the tale of The Caribous of Colorado. The Caribous’ transient existence lasted for just one year (1978) in the North American Soccer League (the MLS before the MLS). They were the first, and subsequent last, professional sports team to employ leather fringes, inevitably going 8-22 and finishing their one season in last place. Legend has it, any team who wears leather fringes automatically goes 8-22, even if said team only plays 16 games. So what happened to the team? Stick with us, because it's about to get weird. Caribous are not, nor have ever been, native to Colorado. So, introducing a species to a habitat it isn’t equipped or adapted to survive in can and will only lead to one logical conclusion: death. The only other explanation is that the team was named after a abandoned mining town, Caribou, that burned down in 1879, OR 1978 WHEN YOU SWITCH THE NUMBERS. The dots are laid out, now connect them.

Dynamo 2011/12 home jersey. Like it because I'm a big fan of orange in general. Who's with me that the corporate sponsor takes up too much of the uniform? That's where the other American sports have it right, it's just the TEAM logo. Imagine a McDonald's logo on the Yankee pinstripes? For soccer, I love the international jerseys. it's just the colors and the team logos. If you have to have it, then make the team logo bigger than the sponsor. But that's just me. Any case, really like the Houston jerseys.

I've always like Vancouver's. Imagine what this style would have looked like with a dash of orange here or there? :rolleyes:

To cite a Great American philosopher: Of all the words of tongue or pen, these few are saddest, "what might have been." ;)

Before I really got into soccer I hated the sponsor logos, then once I started watching more and realized that sponsor logos allow the team to still make money without bombarding you with ads every 5 minutes I decided it is a much better system than other American sports. Now jerseys without a sponsor just look naked to me.

Funny, I've seen old mock ups of NYCFC jerseys from random people that look like that. Using the pinstripes of the Yankees and light blue of MCFC. If they add some orange, I'd be down for that for us.

See your point, but take American football, I'm not sure where the adds that bombard every 5 minutes come from. Soccer has the adds that line the perimeter of the field, even more than football. I know it's a mere difference of opinion, but like baseball, I'd like to see a look where the team name is writted on the front and maybe the sponsor a smaller logo in the upper corner of the kit. just a thought!
