The LA Galaxy held media day today, which means pictures of players in full kits for the media guide. The official unveiling of the new kit won't be until the scrimmage against the farm club at the end of the month, but we've had a leak from media day that confirms our previous leak despite reports denying their authenticity. It was posted by a Galaxy intern then quickly deleted, but preserved for internet posterity.

The more I see it, the more I like the eleven part sash. All for one and one for all and all that jazz. We can't tell from that shot if they left the sparkles in the badge, but we can see that the This is LA tag made it through the final edit. The shorts have similar piping as the shirt does adding a symmetry through the look.
The socks are the best part though. The whole design feels vintage inspired, especially in borrowing that Portland Trailblazers design element. The socks really reinforce the way-back feel, calling to mind the Lakers of the 80s.
I really like it. It's like the previous Galaxy home design but with more whimsy.
