Jurgen Klinsmann - Gold Cup vs. Costa Rica

What's Jurgen wearing: USMNT coach's outfits subject of much adoration and documentation | THE SIDELINE

It's a question we've undoubtedly all asked ourselves at some point during Jurgen Klinsmann's reign as head coach of the US national team: "What's Jurgen wearing?"

I remember this one time I had to hit the DVR rewind to do a double take and confirm that, yes, in fact he is wearing a henley T-shirt with star-printed chest pocket while on the sideline of a soccer field, serving as the head coach of a real, professional soccer team. This is real life, folks.

WhatsJurgenWearing.com is a real website. "Documenting the wonderful outfits of Jurgen Klinsmann" is their tagline, and that's exactly what they're doing. Retroactive to the first Gold Cup group stage game against Belize, you can refer back and re-live each and every outfit worn by our favorite adopted German head coach.

Phrases like "a striking cerulean USMNT polo" and "a fetching navy blue USMNT polo" are used freely. The site could do well with more results-based, Jurgen outfit stats, though. For example, the US national team is a perfect 3-0-0 in Gold Cup play when Jurgen Klinsmann wears a different U.S. Soccer polo than he has ever worn before during a Gold Cup match.

American soccer needs this upstart website to forever chronicle what might be the most vital part of the US national team's recent successes: Jurgen Klinsmann's wonderful outfits.
