Defending FIFA World Club Cup champions and last season’s Italian Serie A runners-up Inter Milan have released their 2011/12 Nike away kit. Here is a look at the new Nerazzurri jersey in detail along with a press release from Inter and Nike.
The 2011/2012 Away Jersey – made from innovative recycled polyester – rounds out Nike’s exclusive collection for FC International.
Introduced today in Beijing, on the eve of the Supercoppa Tim final – the new 2011/2012 away jersey for FC Internazionale.
The kit is inspired by the historic Inter jersey worn during the victorious 1964-65 season: a season full of memorable wins including the national championship, the first Champions Cup and the first Intercontinental Cup of the team’s glorious history.
The body of the jersey is white with a black and blue diagonal band and two blue stripes on the sides. The diagonal band actually first appeared on an Inter kit in the 1950s; however, in the minds of the fans, it is identified with the Club’s extraordinary successes of the 1960s.
The away jersey unites the Club’s tradition with a particularly elegant, classic men’s clothing line. Even the jersey’s expert tailoring harkens back to that of the original: black fabric collar with blue along the lower edge, two buttons at the neck, drop seam at the shoulder, and a deep cuff at the sleeve.
“Inter” is written under the collar on the back of the jersey: inside the collar – a red cross on a white background – the symbol of the city of Milan.
The matching shorts are white with a blue stripe up the sides; the socks are all white with “Inter” written on the back of each calf.
