United States World Cup Home Shirt: Slideshow

We have more photos of the United States World Cup home shirt that we wanted to share with you. They’re courtesy of Nike from the launch of the new uniform which happened in New York City Thursday morning.

In the slideshow, you can see several interesting shots of the US World Cup home shirt, which grows on me the more I look at the pictures.

Also pictured is Walter Bahr, the United States soccer legend from the 1950 World Cup.

According to Nike, the new home jersey is white with an obsidian blue round-neck collar and a tonal grey sash across the front, which echoes the design of the U.S. Men’s National Team kit wore to defeat England sixty years ago. The jersey’s back neck features a graphic that reads ‘USA’, while inside is a graphic of a coiled rattlesnake. Symbolically placed above the heart on the back of U.S. Soccer Federation’s crest inside the jersey is a coiled rattlesnake accompanied by the defiant and inspiring message ‘DTOM’, which stands for ‘Don’t Tread On Me.’ This phrase has been used for more than two centuries in the United States, first by the colonies as a warning against the occupying English, and then featured on the Gadsen flag at the formation of the US Navy. In recent years both the US Marines and the U.S. Men’s National Team have used it as a patriotic rallying call.

The numbers on the back of the jersey are inspired by the famously bold and recognizable numerals used throughout collegiate and professional sports in the USA.

    I really wish the sash was red or blue, but it’s still a nice kit. I like the blue better, which I already own. I love the hidden “DTOM” message on the back of the crest. I had worn mine 2 or 3 times before I noticed it. Oh, and that new white warm up jacket, I gotta buy me one of those!
