The new strip for 2012 was released this week, and it looks like it could be really nice.
As a 2nd year strip it seems SVOLME haven’t been quite so eager to get their logo on every possible angle, and a more classic, Serie-A style wide stripe design has been adopted.
There is an obvious parallel to Inter Milan (albeit perpendicular stripes) but perhaps the best part is the rumour that we may have no shirt front sponsor.
There are obvious negative aspects about this financially, but the strip will look better and hopefully get some record shirt sales as people want a shirt with no advert on the front.
There will be a Fukuya store advert on the left sleeve, and as far as I can tell the newspaper will still advertise on the shoulders.
It is a little alarming that they don’t have a made version to show yet, and there were some complaints about the quality of the fabric compared to previous Mizuno shirts which I will need to wait until the shirt is made before I know if this has been improved.
