It’s not everyday you get to experience stepping on the field of Providence Park, so when I did I brought along our photographer Brian, and buddy Drew who models our men’s apparel. Last week we had the opportunity to shoot our 2017 Soccer City USA Collection at the stadium and did so in typical Portland fashion with pouring down rain.
This year’s collection is anchored by a theme called the HomeSlice. The HomeSlice is graphic that includes the state of Oregon with the texture from a log slice embedded into the image. It pays homage to Timbers tradition of cutting a log slice after each goal scored, and also to our city’s heritage in the logging industry. In the mix is the new Stadium Blueprint Tee which features an actual blueprint of the stadium renovation of 2010-2011. It was during this time the Timbers transitioned from the NSL to the MLS and highlights the historic moment of the stadiums history. The detail on the graphic is amazing and something I think you'll appreciate.
You can expect to find the usual suspects that we’ve carried for years, but we’ve also switched up the color ways and fabric choices of both Soccer City USA and Est. 75 long and short-sleeved tees. The collection is rounded out with the Rose City Baller Hoody. My stoked level is ultra-high for this bad boy - it turned out great and I think you’ll love it. Design notes include the Portland Flag on the front, raised felt on the back, and custom woven label. It’s a premium mid-weight fleece designed for comfort. This year's collection includes styles for men, women and kids.
