Usually assigned as a goalkeeper kit, a predominantly hi-vis yellow-green shirt with navy accents now serves as theManchester United outfield players’ third outfit, produced by adidas for 2022/23. Similar to other Premier League kits from the stripes brand for that season, the jersey has its crew-neck collar designed with a pattern inspired by the ’90s. Interconnected angled rectangles comprise the said aesthetics, giving zigzag appearance. They prominently stand out from the dark-coloured collar by opting for the base shade of the shirt. The rest of the shirt carry out an all-over pattern of angled connected right triangles as formed by the greenish micro-striping pattern. It must be noted the said shape is feature element on this season’s home shirt.
It must be noted the said shape of the blocked striping is a feature element on this season’s home shirt. The collar’s design, on the other hand, takes inspiration from the Zeitgeist fashion that sprang in the 1990’s. The incorporation of geometric visuals can also be attributed to the graphic identity of some of United’s shirt from the said decade. This season’s third kit takes in a new and bolder direction akin to the 202/21 third, which had an asymmetric abstract striping pattern of black and white. The visual effects of those shirts have more activity than the usual plain application of colours to Manchester United’s other third jerseys.
