In a summer where it seems nobody can get stripes right, Puma and Milan have arrived to save the day.
Celebrating Milan’s 120th anniversary in style, Puma have taken them back to the narrow red and black stripes worn by their European Cup winning side of 1969.
That outfit went on to win the Intercontinental Cup with a team captained by Rossoneri golden boy Gianni Rivera.
The thinner stripes are a look Milan return to fairly regularly and bring to mind those classic shirts of the 1980s worn by the likes of Franco Baresi and Ray Wilkins.
This year’s stripes continue all the way around the shirt and are paired with a clean round collar for a classy modern interpretation of the classic 60’s kit.
Our only wish?
That Pooh Jeans were still around to sponsor this smart update of a club classic kit.
There are no tribal patterns, alternating thickness of stripes or big ugly breathable panels in black which to some people may come across as dull and boring, but in our opinion, less is definitely more when it comes to classic Serie A styling.
Whilst we were initially sceptical about Puma taking over from Adidas as technical partners to Milan last summer, these new kits for the 2019-2020 season have changed our fragile little minds.
Elegant, clean and skillfully simple, these shirts scream Sartorial Soccer elegance.
