Ok so the first official release of a top club shirt for 2012-13 has been made. Its the Chelsea shirt we saw leaked a while back with the gold trim

Not a massive change, really.

I like it better than this year's kit (mostly bc of all the white on the shoulders), but I don't like gold lettering if you aren't a defending champ.

Agreed. It's a great improvement over the "white yoke" version this season...also, i was under the impression that the accents are silver, not gold.

That's going to look really nice with the standard, white league patches! :therock:

If you want to use gold and it's not one of your usual colors, win the league first, please.

I could see it if maybe it was an anniversary season or something like that too, but I'm not aware of that being the case for Chelsea.

Apparently they're trying to justify it as a way of "celebration of sport and the capital this summer"...which makes little sense to me. Sounds like some bogus justification for the color.

Yeah they are using the gold for the Olympics. :wacko: Seems a bit silly. Wonder if they will release a silver or bronze away kit?

Using the gold accents would have made more sense for this season in the run-up to the Olympics. Those kits won't see much use until after the Olympics are over.

However, it's still a good-looking kit. It's always nice to see Adidas make such a clean and conservative kit, in contrast to their usual fare.

Maybe they plan on winning. The MLS All Star game? They probably expected to win the league and now they're back tracking with the Olympic explanation

Like others have said: it looks nice, but makes little sense in context.

The gold is useless. I can't say I'm a fan.

Does anyone know when AC Milan will unveil their new kits?

I like the gold more as an accent than like, red. The current jerseys are pretty bad, and I'm glad this is an update.

it's a huge improvement from the current shirt, but I'm not digging the gold at all. Why is the Samsung in gold as well?

That's actually the thing I like about it. The sponsor logo in white would cause it to stand out too much.

I guess I'm just a traditonalist who doesn't like recoloring the crest on a shirt.

Disagree. Now it just makes the white numbers and on the socks stick out too much.

See, I think that's a good thing.

The white socks are Chelsea's signature. They should stand out more than the sponsor logo.

Then it would be nice if the stripes on the socks were gold instead of white.

It is true. It's been confirmed by Nike and the national teams.

The current Chelsea kits are better than next year's; I dislike the gold and like the white shoulder yoke that is currently used.

USA has good kits and I guess it's cool that the men and women are getting the same kit (why not, right?) but the number placement, which stops a red stripe looks bad and should be modified to have the red stripe come closer to the number. Or modify them in a different way.

The gap in the stripe is as wide as it is to accomodate double digit numbers.

At least Chelsea's gold won't look out of place if they end up wearing it in the FA Cup final and get a win.

And I still love the US kit. The only thing that bothers me is the shadow sash, but at least that won't be too noticeable if your'e just watching the game. And seeing Donovan wearing 10 will probably mean that everybody will get their first choice of number when non-friendly competitions start up.
