Sometimes history is best left alone. This applies to Liverpool’s away shirt for the 2012-13 season, which was officially unveiled tonight by Liverpool FC and Warrior Sports. Unfortunately, in this case, Warrior Sports has got it wrong.
According to the Liverpool website, “Following Warrior’s design direction of modern tradition, the new kit is inspired by Liverpool’s away Kit from 1900-1906 which featured the yoke detail in recognition of sailors and the huge influence of the docks on the city at the time.”
In theory, this makes logical sense. Go back to the history of the club and commemorate the proud history of Liverpool FC. However, the Liverpool shirt from 1900-1906 that features the yoke detail should best be left to the history books, and not brought back to life.
The drab gray color of the collar makes the shirt look morbid. To make matters worse, it looks like the front of a cape. As a result, the away shirt looks horrid, which is incredibly disappointing given how the new Liverpool home shirt looks splendid.
