This kit is just cool. So cool.

Arguably one of the most beautiful club crests, these guys have mastered the image.

These kits will be worn on pitch at the first home match at the Bombonera as part of the First Division Championship 2014.

Drawing inspiration from the ports that surround the team’s home neighborhood of La Boca, the home and away kits show distinctive seafaring elements.

HOME KIT
The deep blue home jersey features a bold golden stripe that runs across the chest. The round neck jersey has two buttons, each with an engraved anchor and the club’s acronym: C.A.B.J.

On the inside of the jersey at the base of the neck, a pennant tab features an anchor flanked by the club’s founding year, 1905. The anchor commemorates the Swedish ships that arrived at La Boca’s ports at the beginning of the century, which inspired the blue and golden yellow colors of the home kits.

AWAY KIT
The white away jersey features a bold golden stripe, bordered by deep blue piping, which runs across the chest. The rounded collar is deep blue accented by golden yellow. The same pennant design with the year and anchor is on the inside of the jersey at the base of the neck.

The home and away shorts are deep blue with subtle golden yellow details, and the socks for both uniforms are deep blue with diamond-shaped details in golden yellow on the back.

The home and away kits will be available from Aug. 1 in Nike stores and selected shops.

While these new kits feature Nike’s signature design details, it also offers players the very latest in performance innovation, kit technology and environmental sustainability.

bake world cup collection hero

Yeah, yeah, the world cup might well have ended a couple of weeks ago but this is one collection that has plenty more life left in it.

The good guys over at Bake Designs, launched their world cup collection of t-shirts at the start of June. The supporting artwork and the t-shirts themselves are a masterclass. Re-creating each logo whilst using a beautiful type on the numbering – I’m in absolute awe of these.

A steal as well, with the white t-shirts being a mere £15 – or you could push the boat out and jump aboard the good ship celebration and get the Weltmeister t-shirt.

Hats off to these guys – a mighty fine collection. Do check ’em out. Doing Bristol proud.

The new 2014/15 Bayern Munuch away kit embodies the club in its current form – a contemporary team of world beaters.

The broad burgundy and ‘tribe’ blue stripes help the shirt stand out and the reverse has the slogan Mia san mia woven into the collar, embodying the spirit of FC Bayern.

Big fan of this!

The texture on the colours is a nice touch and adds a bit of depth to the shirt.

The kit is available now.

Always up there with the best of ’em, AFC Bournemouth have launched their away kit for the 2014/15 season.

It’s a beauty, along with the photography which is by the rather talented Amy Maidment.

As a lover of Football and design, it’s worth watching what the guys at Bournemouth do. Very much on point, not in it for short term gimmicks. It’s well executed creative.

A fine example is this season review imagery.
