Before any panic ensues, let’s be clear, your blue zip-ups and green scarves—the spirit fingers of woven accessories—aren’t going anywhere. You can still strut towards CenturyLink Field in head-to-toe Seattle Sounders sports gear that you know and love and can potentially direct traffic in.
But with championship status comes championworthy duds. Enter Reigning Champ, a Vancouver, BC–based athletic wear outfitter that’s collaborating with our MLS Cup–winning soccer team. The limited-edition Sounders FC gear, officially dubbed Reigning Champ x Seattle Sounders FC MLS Champions Pack, is much more subdued than the usual sartorial fanfare.
Indeed, nothing quite says Seattle style than dressing in black and gray. Nope, not a hue in sight. Instead of the team’s colors, rave green and pacific blue, the words “Eternal Blue” and “Forever Green” are emblazoned across a heather gray T-shirt and crewneck sweatshirt, as modeled by defender/midfielder Brad Evans and good ol’ hot hands himself, goalkeeper Stefan Frei. In black, find a lightweight nylon short as well as a zip-up bomber jacket, both adorned with the Sounders' badge.
The full line is available at Reigning Champ or at the Pro Shop at CenturyLink Field. Grab some grayscale fan gear while you still can, Seattle.
