America’s Kit Crisis

I am a serious nerd for all things uniform-related, so this link caught my eye: today Slate Magazine takes a look at the US Men’s National Team and its ongoing search for an identity, exemplified by its constant uniform redesigns. It’s a cool photo essay that’s thankfully short on the more retina-burning US kits of the past.

As the article notes:

If the national team changed uniforms in Bolivia or Belgium, there would be a revolution. In the United States, no one seems to care. But perhaps we should. A consistent uniform is good for marketing, builds fan loyalty, and links matches together historically.
