Someone PLEASE hire this guy!

A graphic designer on Reddit has created imaginary jersey re-dos for World Cup 2014 teams. I dislike a few (Germany, Portugal, Greece looks like Scotland to me), but a great many of these are straight badass-ery. I even dig the USMNT & Oranje mock-ups.

Costa Rica was the worst. I like Belgium and Greece. Ghana is pretty cool too, but wouldn't want to wear that in the Brazilian sun.

We must have very different tastes because the majority of those are atrocious.

If you want a class kit you need to see the leaked kits by Nike for Roma. That is a damn near perfect kit.

For your viewing pleasure, be sure to clean up when your done:

I will say that I did enjoy these designs: Mexico, Cameroon, England, Honduras and Argentina.

Also, here is another perfect kit to judge my taste by:

The black kit on the end is pure class, the other two are garbage.

Best ones are Belgium, Honduras, France, England, Japan, Cameroon, Mexico and Croatia.

Worst ones are Ghana, Germany, Portugal, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Colombia, and Australia.

Honduras, Japan and England are the 3 best by far I think.

Greg Seltzer said...

I disagree with you guys on Colombia and Costa Rica. Those are badass.

Zach said...

Costa Rica's is amazing. Would love to see this guy go to work on a Jamaica kit. It would be crazy, mahn.

The Ticos jersey is perfect, and so is Nigeria, with its subtlety. Plus next time. I re do a bathroom it's going to have Nigeria color scheme and tiles.

A star cresting over the shoulder would have made the USA kit perfect

Those are nice, as are these;

A designer named Angelo Trofa came up with a slew of mock-ups for a bunch of teams. Including a US kit with the Illuminati symbol worked in.

I guess I'm too midwest for y'all. Nearly all of these kits are eye-searing abominations.

I am from St. Louis. :)

^ Probably from a rougher neighborhood than Nelly.

Greg Seltzer said...

We grew up in neighboring municipalities, but his neighborhood was a little rougher than mine. My neighborhood until I was about 8 topped his, though.

Ecuador's could put you into seizures if you staired at it long enough. I too am representing the STL.

Tom said...

Didn't like Argentina, BiH,Germany, and USA. The rest are freakin' tight.

heythisisrobbie said...

Those are amazing. I'm a huge fan of:

Uruguay
Japan
Netherlands
Greece
Brazil

Jay said...

Guys, no. Just no. This is 1994 with a seizure.

Bernardinho said...

Whaaaat, come on, this is fun! AND it's non-habit forming.

John said...

The only jersey I found decent was Spain's jersey.

BH said...

The US one seems to have potential. Would like to see it on an actual person playing soccer before judging. At least its not as boring as all white and has some American theme to it.
