While it isn’t the be all and end all, the kit that a team plays in is important as it represents the club. The task for the manufacturers of creating new designs on such a regular basis must be a daunting one. And considering how pricey Premier League strips tend to be these days, fans rightly demand a high quality shirt.
When it comes to the home kits, while we have seen some stinkers, they are usually pretty easy to design as the fundamentals remain the same. However, designing a decent away/third shirt is trickier as there is more creative freedom and license to play with different colours which always increases the chances of things going wrong.
Manchester United haven’t been short of some fashion disasters down the years, from the blue tiger skin design in 92-93, to the latest tea cloth resembling effort.
