We love a sash on the Football Shirt Collective. Peru, River Plate and now Manchester City, who have launched this lovely purple and orange 2018-19 Manchester City 3rd kit.
Nike have continued their run of form with creative 3rd kits with this purple and orange combination that is the closest a Double Decker has ever come to a football shirt. The City 3rd shirt has textured purple based with and orange sash.
Though response to the shirt has been really positive. Football shirt lover Phil Delves felt the shirt should have been a bit more Dairy Milk in swapping the orange sash with white – reminiscent of the 1992-94 Manchester City away shirt.
Ok, white > orange. pic.twitter.com/b4ArbfAnMF

Got to say we agree with Phil on this one but hats off to Nike to bashing out the sash.
