— OldTraffordFaithful (@OTFaithful) May 29, 2023
Manchester United’s home shirt for the 2023/24 was made by adidas and utilised a particular ‘Team Collage Red’ for the traditional primary colour. The main feature design though was the repeating geometric pattern of the Lancashire Rose, with the cuts and angles of the lines further invoking thoughts of the Trafford Road Bridge. Black accents coursed through the template shoulder stripes and collar, which further had tippings in red, white and black micro-striping.

The Red Devils sported their known colour identity using a dark shade on their 2022/23 home shirt.

While not done for the first time, the club symbol sat atop a shield crest underlay, a refreshing touch for the logo placement. Subtle embossed pinstripes across the front and black shoulder stripes completed the look of the adidas jersey.
