Everton Football Club has unveiled its away shirt for the 2014/15 season.
Everton’s black shirt, designed by Umbro, takes its inspiration from Everton’s home shirt that was worn during the 1881-82 season, which was black with a diagonal red stripe across the front. Everton and Umbro decided to omit the red diagonal stripe, and have instead produced a crew neck collar with a v-stretch rib insert for comfort and a knitted shadow stripe that gives the shirt a stylish finish.
It is complemented by black shorts and black socks with white trim.
Whilst predominantly black, the away shirt carries subtle design references to the ‘home’ blue of Everton – including ventilation holes in the shape of the Toffee Tower and blue stitching on the inside of the hem.
