Goodbye, Patrik Ervell. Hello, Chevrolet. Manchester United has a new home kit. The previous, a sharp number that paid homage to Manchester’s connection to the textile industry (i.e. gingham), clothed the Red Devils during David Moyes’ remarkably dreadful tenure as manager. And, as such, goes the way of the gray kits that rendered players invisible on the pitch during the ’90s. Those little collars have been told to fuck right of, except on Puma’s new Arsenal alternate.
In replacement of the Ervellian design is a new look that borrows, seemingly, from Little League baseball. There is a single button henley placket and then there is, well, a fantastically large Chevy ribbon. Americanness doesn’t suit football (sorry, Glazer family), and unless Louis van Gaal rights the ship, this one should, like last year’s kit, go the way of the dodo in 12 months time.
Every summer when we are waiting for the new football season to start enjoyment is to be had in the releases of all teams new kits…(apart from the year my own team brought a shitty red checked one out!) and the World Cup kits are the same. Nike has just unveiled England‘s new home and away kits ahead of the team’s campaign at this year’s World Cup in Brazil. The new kits pack the latest in technical innovations from Nike while sticking to an aesthetic inspired by classic England kits of the past and St. George’s cross. The all-white home kits are a direct reference to the ones worn by England in the 1970 World Cup in Mexico and feature an engineered pinstripe in the fabric, white satin tape on the shoulders and a subtle metallic weave on the Three Lions crest. The away kit plays up the national symbols of England and features a subtle, tonal pinstripe design with a graphic interpretation of St. George’s cross on the front that can only be seen when viewing the jersey from a distance. The away kit also features a unique treatment that makes it come to life under UV light. Look for the new kits on the backs of the England players when the team takes to pitch in Brazil.
