Arsenal unveil new kit for new season

Arsenal have unveiled a trio of traditional-looking kits, their first from new suppliers, Puma ahead of the coming season.

The home kit is mostly red with a crew neck, and white sleeves. It has "heat transfer tapes running down the body that accentuate the torso" and "breathable underarm mesh inserts".

Puma says that it "stays true to the traditional Arsenal colours that first appeared in 1933".

It is also said to "represent ‘forever’, one third of the 'Future, Forever, Victorious' values identified by Puma as core to the club and the design inspiration behind the home, away and cup kits, with ‘forever’ symbolising the importance of community and belonging to both the club and its fans".

The away kit (representing 'forever') also looks familiar - it is yellow with navy sleeves. The club introduced those colours in 1969-70.

The 'cup' kit (victorious) has navy and sky diagonal segments, with lime piping.

They join a Puma stable that also includes Borussia Dortmund, Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Arsenal have played in red since they were given a charitable donation from Nottingham Forest in the 1880s, but the white sleeves were indeed added in 1933.

They reverted to all red in 1966-67 but fans did not welcome the move and it lasted only a season. They played in redcurrant shirts in the final campaign at Highbury (2005-06) to mark the shirts they wore in 1913.
