The Portland Timbers unveiled two new kits — a secondary, Rose City Red jersey and a throwback third kit — during a Monday night fashion show event at Pure Space in Portland’s Pearl District.
Much like last year’s secondary kit, the dominant color is still rose red, but this year’s features a black-to-red fade, which is meant to symbolize the opening of roses at the city’s famed International Test Gardens. The third is a retro-styled kit featuring the club’s green and gold colors.
The team’s three kits are below, left to right for primary, secondary and third:
