    I'll buy it on discount. I mean since thats the direction the team is going in, i might as well jump on that bandwagon

    I grabbed my kit last night at the reveal event.

    The event itself was pretty cool at the CN Tower, good turn out and a nice venue. Danny Dichio signed my scarf! (First auto - nice).

    The reveal was a fail. They had no audio, and the room just died.

    I got my kit AS SOON as they were onsale, at the event. My notes:

    1. I like the mesh a lot. The fabric of this kit is excellent and something our old kits weren't. These breathe like mad.
    2. The logos are high quality, a plastic material that has ridging that looks like stitches. Better than the logos on the outgoing kit.
    3. CN Tower / Maple leaf is a nice touch

    These kits look and feel A LOT better in person than the media photos show. My pics are bad, because I was on the train home and excited af.

    This was a very interesting read. Thanks, Og!

    I honestly never thought the manufacturer's would have such an influence, but once you think about it, it does make sense. I do think that in recent years, our kits have not been as interesting or exciting (the onyx was my favourite) and I wonder if some of the themes raised in that twitter thread provide some explanation.

    also so a reminder they have last year authentic home jersey short or long sleeve customized name + number for $54
    and I can confirm it does come with a star which isn’t showed on the webpage
    Thanks for the heads up on last years kit, picked up an Altidore. I like the old kit way better, the new one is fugly.

    This is a good shout, thanks! I wanted one with the star ⭐️ but couldn’t bring myself to pay the price. That’s a good deal.

    This discussion is starting to remind me of this 'controversy':



    I actually like the new kit, FWIW.

    I'm not a fan of the new kit but maybe it will grow on me over the season. I do like the leaf and CN Tower combo and hope that carries over to this years SSH scarves with the silver star. Fingers crossed they don't somehow include a button into the scarves………..

    Nicest shirt we’ve ever had, IMHO.
