  2. That detail on the away jersey changed my mind about what I thought of them.
    Any estimates on when they might be made available to the public? I assume a sponsor will have to be announced first, but I'd also think they would want to get them out before Christmas...

  5. Is that Jimmy Conrad's nipple just under the logo in the close up of the away jersey?

  6. @Anon 9:35 My assumption will be that they will announce a sponsor before mass selling the jersey. I have heard that they will not have them available till close to March. This is an Adidas issue, they have delivered MLS authentic gear at that time in the past and I have heard that the the World Cup last year put them behind svhedule as it is.

  7. @Moufwash I like that detail as well, wish it was on both jerseys. The mockups I saw had that detail in some other merchandise. Looked cool to me.
