Liverpool’s 2012/13 new away kit is released
Liverpool’s new American kit manufacturers Warrior have showcased their design for the Liverpool away strip for the forthcoming 2012/13 season. The kit’s colour consists of black and a raven grey yoke around the neck and grey on the side and inner sleeve. As with the new home shirt, the liver bird is embroidered in amber on the chest.
The shirt has been designed using Warrior’s revolutionary material, War-Tech. At the heart of War-Tech lies Scafé, an innovative, antimicrobial fabric made with coffee grounds As well as being environmentally friendly, Scafé is fast drying, assists with odour control and provides UV protection.To further ensure the highest level of performance, the main body of the shirt is designed with durable water resistant technology to reject external moisture and help maintain dryness. Under-arm four-way stretch mesh fabric also enables full-range movement, functionality and air flow to help regulate body temperature.
Head of Warrior Football Richard Wright comments on the yoke design: “The away kit draws strong parallels from the uniforms worn by the Liverpool dockyard workers who plied their trade at the Mersey Docks – the world’s most influential ship building at the turn of the twentieth century.” It also similar to the design of the away kit worn by the Liverpool side from 1900 to 1906.
