Arsenal Away kit

Arsenal launched their new away kit for the 2012/13 season on Thursday night and i must say i really like it.

The kit is purple with black hoops and dons red trim on the shirt cuffs. There is a graphic on the inner back neck taken from the clubs motto ‘Victoria Concordia Crescit’ while the graphic on the outer back neck pays tribute to Arsenal’s legendary manager Herbert Chapman’s WM formation.

The purple and black hooped socks, with one red stripe each, also pays tribute to Chapman, after he first introduced hooped socks as he thought it made it easier for players to pick each other out.

Below is the promotional video which includes Arsenal fans and rappers the Rizzle Kicks, who wear the kit as they perform a track from their album Stereo Typical, ‘Demolition man’. Arsenal players Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alex Song also feature in the video to promote the new kit, which is available to pre order today.

    Absolutely horrendous!

    Relating to your middle para: it was also suggested way back in the sixties (if not before) that a white kit made it easier for players to pick each other out.

    Leeds United were referenced in their successful 60s/70s era.

    Our nicest away kit,imo, since I became a fan in 1961 was white shirts with red collar and cuffs, white shorts, white socks.
    Simple and easy on the eye.
