Yesterday, Umbro unveiled the new Manchester City away shirt for the FA Cup winning club’s 2011/2012 Premiership campaign. With a nod to past glory – the shirt takes cues from City’s triply victorious (League, FA, and European Cup Winners Cup) 1969/1970 season – the shirt is made of cutting edge stretch mesh. The black stripes are wider than the red, consistent with the ’69 shirt, but the cut comes from Umbro’s contemporary approach to sports tailoring. They’ve made it so the stripes remain consistent during a goals up celebration.
