The moment of truth is upon us, as news of the brand new Bolton Wanderers away kit, manufactured by Macron, just arrived via social media.
Bear with me as I do my best imitation of a fashion journalist... The new Wanderers swagger sees a unique, tailor-made design featuring an all black base, with sexy gold trim and gold coloured club logo, sponsor logo and manufacturer logo, and a lovely little collared design. The shirt also features shoulder and side panel micromesh inserts for 'maximum breathability,' and our elephant logo and a Lancashire rose on the rear.
Thankfully the players modelling the kit - Derik Osede, club captain Darren Pratley (that still feels weird) and Mark Davies - have veered away from the embarrassing poses laid on in the home kit launch.
Personally, I love it. I love the black and gold colouring - I also loved the last black kit we had, which had yellow trim - and I think it looks very stylish. Lets hope the regal gold colouring can inspire the side to some golden performances.
The new kit will go on sale at the Family Fun Day on Sunday (August 2nd), and we expect it to be available online and at the club store from then onwards. I will hopefully be purchasing mine at the opening game of the season next weekend.
