We have our first teaser of the LA Galaxy second kit, posted on MLSgear.com as part of the upcoming Jersey Week (link). It's Fashion Week in New York, so what better time to go over the nuances of MLS fashion. The theme of Jersey Week is "Jersey as Art", a concept I can get firmly behind.
From the teaser, the blue of the shirt is darker. Compare to last year's change kit above or take a closer look here (link) and you can see the blue in the teaser image is the blue of the upper shoulder pad part of the shirt. Hopefully this means the Galaxy are getting a fully blue shirt and are moving fully away from the shoulder pad era.
"Celebrating 'Jersey Week' by unveiling the updated looks of 12 Major League Soccer clubs is the perfect way to kick off the 2013 season," said Ernesto Bruce, adidas' MLS Manager. "Working in partnership with MLS and each of the clubs, we have designed and produced new uniforms that not only respect the authenticity of the game, the teams and their supporters but enable each athlete to perform at their highest level."
WV Hooligan has compiled all the teasers MLS put out today (link). Nothing all too shocking. MLS has released a full Jersey Week schedule, which includes the LA Galaxy's event at the Grammy Museum unveiling the secondary and third kits. It's unclear as of now if the third shirt will be unveiled that night or not until it's scheduled date late in the season.
