Yesterday Panda Bear received a package in the mail.
That package contained the new dark blue Arsenal away kit complete with shorts and socks and, hilariously, ‘Bendtner – 26’ on the back. Things got a little crazy and before we knew it he was posing for photos in the entire kit for the blog.
I admitted last week that I though the new away kit was pretty good and I have to say that seeing it in the flesh made it even better. It might not be a classic Arsenal design but the collar isn’t as daggy as it looks in some of the other photos and the light pin-stripes are far less noticeable.
The blue looks great and the shirt got the seal of approval from a couple of very important females who called it “hot”.
In short if you’re going to buy an Arsenal kit this year then this is the one I’d recommend. It’s beats the hell out of the third grey and white kit and should tide you over until they bring out a proper home kit with red white sleeves next season.
You can purchase it via Kitbag here.
Anyway that’s it for now, but I’ll be back later on with some Arsenal news and a Guest Post later. In the meantime, why not take some time out to hurl abuse at Panda Bear in the comments for being such a bevan.
Have your say on the new dark blue away kit by leaving a comment.
