Swansea revealed their new home shirt today for the 15/16 season.
The shirt designed by Adidas harks back to Swansea's past - a city where once half the world's copper was smelted. The shirt's neckline, sleeves, and sponsor's logo all feature copper-coloured trim. The reference to the city's roots is a nice touch, in a Premiership era where globalisation is prioritised.

The new home shirt is striking to look at while maintaining the club's white and black traditional colours. A minor fault is that there is a strong resemblance to the Welsh side's centenary shirt which is slightly superior, and also to the 14/15 version. However, this will be one of the most admired shirts in the Premiership this season.
Classy and aesthetically pleasing, this will become a fan's favourite. Soccerjury rating = 9/10
