Springbok jersey for British & Irish Lions 2021 Tour, featuring a vintage colourway and special commemorative 3D logo, among other features.
The world champions will don a unique commemorative jersey when they face the best players from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales in three Tests on home turf in July in the much-anticipated Castle Lager Lions Series.
The 2021 Tour will be the 14th
time the British & Irish Lions have visited South Africa and ASICS wanted to celebrate this rich history by putting a very classic spin on the most modern jersey.
The new jersey blends the traditions of garment manufacture, with the latest in performance garment design and materials. Undoubtedly the new jersey’s most distinguishing feature, is its unique colourway. According to ASICS, colour-matching and colour-dying was historically not the precise art it is today. Very often when the team took the field from one game to the next, the jerseys didn’t look the same and potentially, often showed a different shade of green.
Apart from the colourway, the new jersey retains the classic gold collar and features an enlarged crest – much like on rugby jerseys of old – detailed by a 3D logo as seen on many Champions League football club kits.
