U.S. Soccer in Navy Chalkstripes

Three years ago, On The Fly set out to pick a pattern that would be used for our Signature Gift Wrap. We wanted a pattern that was classic, bold, and unmistakably masculine. Ultimately, we decided on a Navy Beaded Pinstripe. The pattern now graces everything from our gift wrap to our business cards & letterhead to our company car.

So you can imagine our surprise when the U.S. Men’s National Team (MNT for short) introduced a new jersey back in March with a pattern that closely resembles our beloved pinstripe. A couple points about this: (1) We realize it’s not exactly like our pattern since it’s more of a Royal Blue and the stripe is solid and brighter than our Cool Gray beaded pinstripe. And (2) we certainly aren’t claiming that Nike borrowed the pattern from us — we know we didn’t invent the pinstripe. But allow us to indulge in the idea that someone at US Soccer or Nike received a gift from us that would later inspire a new jersey!

If you support our troops — and by that we mean, the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team — you can buy the new jersey from US Soccer.
