To be worn for their Champions League away games and ‘selected Premier League fixtures’, here’s Man City’s rinky dinky new carbon grey European away/third shirt for 2012/13 – available for pre-order from City’s official store as of this morning…
Here’s a bit of key design info…
“The black colourway is inspired by kits worn by St. Mark’s (West Gorton) in the 1880s and nods to the night-time matches usually played in the Champions League.
“The neckline is inspired by an iconic Umbro Drill Top – a classic ribbed crew neck with a v-insert, which helps with fit and movement.
“The shirt is teamed with black shorts with the Umbro double diamond and club crest embroidered in vista blue. Black socks with a vista blue cuff and black hoops complete the kit.”
God damn you Umbro. We love it, indeed, this one seems to be getting a lot of love from all over the shop.
What say you Pies fans? Yay or nay?
