Last month, Premier League club Swansea City launched their new home and away kits for the 2014/15 season.

The kits are designed and manufactured by adidas, while financial services provider GWFX (Goldenway Global Investments) return for a second season as Swansea’s main sponsors.

With their home kit, Swansea have gone for a pleasant, minimalist design.

Unfortunately GWFX’s presence on this shirt is anything but minimalist; its gaudy gold diamond logo draws the eye on an otherwise elegant, crisp Swans strip.

The shirt is based on the adidas Condivo 14 template, and it features a V-neck collar and a mesh pattern.

The shorts and socks are both white, with black detail.

Editor’s note: As a Swansea City supporter, I agree with Ben. The home kit design is perfect except for one thing — the sponsor logo, which ruins the look of the shirt. Take that logo away (or replace it with a better designed one), and you’ve got one of Swansea’s best shirts designs ever.

Replacing last season’s popular purple-and-yellow kit, the South Wales club have gone for a bold red-and-black away strip for 2014/15.

Based on the same Condivo 14 design template as the home kit, the road uniform’s sleeves and back are black, while the front is a half-and-half design. The adidas markings are in red, while the club’s crest, placed on the red half of the torso, is black.

The back of the shirts features a white arc running from shoulder to shoulder, highlighting the players’ names and numbers.

The shorts and socks are red, with black detail.

Again, GWFX’s logo spoils the jersey; the red-and-black color scheme is somewhat confused by the prominent diamond gold dashed across the middle.

Nevertheless, this is an attractive kit. The designers obviously wanted the players to stand out – and they will with this brave color combo – but they’ve smartly stopped short of ‘over the top’ territory, something too few away kits manage to do.

    The sponsor’s diamond logo on the away kit doesn’t stand out quite as much. It is really bad on the home kit, but at least it doesn’t say “Wonga.”

    Not sure about that logo not a fan.
