FC Dallas isn't the first, nor will it be the last, soccer team to wear a striped or hooped jersey. But we do take notice when new kits roll out with the horizontal stripes. 

Back in April, we weren't the only ones to notice the similarities between the new U.S. Men's National Team jerseys and FCD's. 

SMU caught our attention on Wednesday when they unveiled their new red and blue hooped jerseys on Facebook. Red & blue are, of course, FCD's colors and SMU's as well.

So which look do you like the best? FCD? USMNT? SMU?

Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki was the honorary scarfer for Saturday's match vs Chivas USA. The big German was a big hit during the ceremony and post-match, when he took the field for nearly an hour to play goalkeeper and take some penalty kicks.
