Following the confirmation of our new kit deal with Umbro, I had worried about the design of the kits particularly what fabric they would use.
It was confirmed that City will be the only club to have our kits made from the same fabric as the current England shirt, the England shirt is terrible up close and the fabric is not what a football shirt should be made from.
Having just seen these pictures (below) of parts of our new shirts up close I am not ecstatic to say the least, I really do not like the fabric. I suppose the saving grace is that our kit will have a sponsor on it filling up the middle and will divert the eye, obviously England's is blank in the middle.
Don't get me wrong it's not a fashion parade and I am a big believer in that, but you do still want your kits to look half decent, especially considering the amount of ugly ones that are knocking about.
Have a look at these and tell me what you think.
