One of half a dozen Umbro-made shirts in The Championship, and one of the better.

The Cherries’ traditional black and red stripes are faded so that they bleed into each other in places, and it works, although I wouldn’t want to stare at it for more than 5 minutes or I’d get car sick. Bonus point secured for the pattern covering the back as well as the front.

The detailing on the cuffs (always feels strange calling them cuffs on short sleeves), and on the rear of the neck are nice touches, and the ‘modern style Y neck’ won’t be for everyone but blends in fine with its surroundings.

I haven’t got the foggiest who MSP Capital are, but their logo is aesthetically pleasing and in white it works well on its dark background here.
