Kit 2013-14: The Cantona collar is back

Kit 2013-14Manchester United have unveiled their new home kit for the season 2013-14, with the return of a fashion inspired from the King himself, the “Cantona collar”. The shirt is a single shade of red, although the gingham style is still present with a tonal black and check more subtly underneath the tailored collar (with three buttons akin to England’s new away strip) which can be seen when upturned.

Kit makers Nike say the design ‘celebrates the United’s successes and Manchester’s industrial heritage’, when the check was produced in the city’s booming cotton mills in the 18th century.

Inside the neck is a woven label featuring the red devil from the United club crest alongside the motto: ‘Forged in Industry, Striving for Glory’.
