    Time for a new thread, as we've passed 500 posts of moaning in the old one. I had the new away kit in my hands yesterday, and dammit, I like it. That being said, since this kit should be a one-off, a return to yellow and blue next season would be most welcome. Dare we hold to hope?

    I wore mine all day Saturday and out to dinner last night. Looks really sharp with a pair of khaki cargo shorts. Gotta couple of compliments on it as well. :cool:

    Arsenal's somewhat disturbing trend of special shirts for this reason or that practically every year since they closed Highbury has turned the two-year shirt cycle into a myth.

    You're right, it's not Arsenal, but I don't think it looks bad on the guys. I was skeptical from the pictures, but after seeing it in action I think it looks pretty good.

    Next season will mark the tenth anniversary of our defeat of Southampton in the FA Cup. I can't think of a more momentous, uh, moment to commemorate. :eek:

    But I do like the white down the sides...very 99/01ish.
    We should be top clients, since we were Nike's first.

    Hey Red and White, wasn't PSG in France Nike's first major club team?

    Edit: My fault, if it's England, then yes sir you are correct.

    I admit, I like the away kit now that I've seen it on pitch. Could've used a splash of yellow to make it more Arsenal.

    I want a home kit with a traditional white collar next year. It's been way too long.

    How about a one-year shirt celebrating the 'white-collar Arsenal'? Everything is worth celebrating for one year nowadays!

    I usually order the arsenal polos in XL. I'm 6'1 179 pounds with broad shoulders and a 44" chest. The XL is a little big on me...American XLs are giant on me, so I'd say the Arsenal sizes run a little smaller compared to the American sizes. Hope that helps.

    I've held off on buying a Wilshere jersey, I think the time may soon be appropriate.

    Anyone think he'll pick up the #4 shirt?

    Been waiting for a long time for the club shop to get them back in stock,
    and would like to get one ASAP.

    Arsenal STOREUSA, has a shirt, with no image, listed for $210...
    ...that can't be for this one can it??:eek:

    I'd expect a Tommy Bahama for 210 bucks!!:confused:

    Didn't see any in the US, but Kitbag has them in stock, and i've had good luck with them in the past. Their shipping rates are much cheaper than the clubs sight and last time i ordered a shirt from them it showed up in about 3 days, which was amazing.
