The 2015 MLS season kicked off this past weekend, and Robbie Keane is already running the show. After an entertaining first round of fixtures, it became clear what sides are well equipped for a playoff run (Seattle, LA Galaxy), and which teams have decided to focus only on brining in one or two big names and filling the rest of the squad with mediocrity akin to the Pro Evolution Soccer Master League default players.
Whatever about the standard of play and the clear gulf in class between certain squads, the MLS always seems to have gorgeous kits. Maybe it's the exclusivity deal which means all the teams must have equipment made by the same company, in this year's case Adidas, that means a certain uniformity which results in a lack of horror shows, but whatever it is, it works.
Here are the best MLS jerseys for the 2015 season.
#20 - New England Revolution Away Jersey
Ok, maybe they are not ALL gorgeous, because this one certainly isn't. What looks like a rejected design for a Welsh rugby kit, this effort is supposed to incorporate the New England flag into it's design, but it just doesn't work.
#19 - Sporting Kansas City Home Jersey
#18 - DC United Away Jersey
#17 - Real Salt Late Away Jersey
#16 - New York City FC Home Jersey
#15 - Colorado Rapids Away Jersey
#14 - FC Dallas Away Jersey
#13 - New York Red Bulls Home Jersey
#12 - Philadelphia Union Away Jersey
#11 - Chicago Fire Away Jersey
#10 - Montreal Impact Home Jersey
#9 - Toronto FC Home Jersey
#8 - LA Galaxy Away Jersey
A very nice kit for Keano to strut his stuff in. Would have placed higher were it not for the "WE'VE WON IT 4 TIMES!" star placement that doesn't look good. Same pattern as the DC United one but the colours work this time.
#7 - Vancouver Whitecaps Home Jersey
#6 - Columbus Crew Home Jersey
#5 - Seattle Sounders Home Jersey
#4 - San Jose Earthquakes Away Jersey
#3 - Houston Dynamo Home Jersey
#2 - Portland Timbers Home Jersey
#1 - Orlando City FC Home Jersey
Oh baby. Any time we see a purple jersey we are immediately thrust back to memories of Harchester United, so thats a plus straight away. The gold trim, the excellent club logo, the inoffensive sponsor. An absolute beauty.
