United unveil new away shirt

24628_10151589256492746_647868808_nIf you thought United’s new home shirt lacked a hint of gingham pattern – which, at least according to the club’s website, is iconic – and you were suffering from withdrawal symptoms after last season’s “table cloth” effort, fear not, for United’s new away shirt represents exactly what you’ve been desperate for.

The new away kit was unveiled during the club’s pre-season tour in Japan at Osaka Castle and, quite frankly, it would have been a much better choice if it had’t been unveiled, for Nike produced another shocker. The shirt features the gingham pattern that characterised last season’s home shirt, although the pattern appears to have a bigger and bolder design.

The shirt which will be available for purchase from tomorrow, features a large black and navy gingham checks apparently represent Manchester’s proud industrial past when, says United official website,  “the check was produced in the city’s booming cotton mills in the 18th century.”

A black round neck collar and a white woven devil feature on the shirt, while the club crest is an embroidered monochromatic midnight navy and white. Midnight navy with alongside thin navy blue stripe features prominently on the new away shorts, while the new away socks are navy blue with a white stripe between two black stripes.

Can we have the standard blue or white shirt back, please?
