The new Arsenal away kit  

Thursday, 21 May 2009

The new kit embraces design features including a pinstripe in the shirt and a polo collar inspired by the shirts worn by the all-conquering side of the 1930s.

Along with the midnight blue shirt, the kit features midnight blue shorts with a photo blue stripe along the side with white canon stitched in to the back of the shorts on the waist-band and midnight blue socks with a photo blue stripe on the top band and Arsenal printed on the calf.

The shirt is made from Nike’s innovative Dri-Fit fabric, which keeps players drier, cooler and lighter by drawing sweat from the body to the fabric’s surface, while its three-dimensional construction gives more air space around the skin to reduce clinging.

Fan favourites Andrey Arshavin, Cesc Fabregas and Theo Walcott were chosen to model the classy new kit, with young Theo proffessing his love for the new pinstriped number:

‘The new kit is a good colour, and it’s nice to have a contrast with the red home kit.’
