Take away the famous cannon over the heart and it looks like an ordinary polo-style shirt. But it's so much more.
The new Arsenal 09/10 Away Soccer Jersey is loaded with style and performance.
The team's official website did a marvelous job of putting together some very detailed info on this shirt, which I will henceforth paraphrase.
The design celebrates the sartorial excellence of the Club’s London birthplace; but that's not all - the design features the shirt embraces (i.e. photo blue pinstripes and tailored collar) were inspired by the shirts worn by the all conquering Gunners side of the 1930s.
Engineered into the side seam is a small blue label featuring two Arsenal cannons either side of the club motto: 'Victoria Concordia Crescit', meaning Victory through Harmony. Also made of Nike’s advanced Dri-FIT® fabric, which keeps you drier, cooler and lighter by drawing sweat from the body to the fabric’s surface, while its three-dimensional construction gives more air space around the skin to reduce clinging.
