AC Milan revealed their new Adidas home kit for the 2017/18 season. The simple and elegant design invokes the club's iconic heritage, taking inspiration from two dominant periods in the club's history.

The first source of inspiration was the 10-year period from 1950-1960. This was the decade in which the club reaffirmed its superiority in the Italian championship by winning four titles. Features such as the crew neck and the red stripe that runs down the middle of the jersey are both taken from the kit design used throughout the 1950s.

The width of the famous black and red stripes was inspired by the period between 1987/88–1997/98 where the club established itself as a dominant European power and grew a global fan base. This decade saw the club claim 17 out of the 29 trophies it has won in total throughout the club's history.

The inspiration for the design is further enhanced by choice of font for names and numbers on the back of the shirt, which is similar to what was worn by the great champions of those years.

This golden era of modern dominance coincided with the club re-establishing its relationship with adidas and was used as the second source of inspiration for the bold and classic design of the 2017/18 jersey.

The kit is completed by white shorts and white socks with red stripes. The jersey will be worn for the first time in AC Milan's final home game of the season against Bologna on the 21st May. An alternative option with black socks and black shorts with red stripes is also available.

Do people genuinely buy the AC Milan shirts year on year? You could wear the shirt from years ago and people wouldn't tell the difference from the current shirts.

Apparently you haven't seen what they've been wearing the last few years

Very much has a jersey from the 2000's feel about it, wish teams would go back to the 'keep kit for 2 seasons'

Has the rules been changed now to allow stripes on the back of shirts?

Well they probably won't have to worry about UEFA given their current league position

Simple, clean and classy. Great job and good to see stripes on the back - where they should be!

At last, Adidas have finally come up with a simple and classic design, albeit from their 2017-2018 kit template, which other clubs under the Adidas sponsorship will be sporting. See Ajax. For the past 6 season Adidas have produced nothing short of hideous design templates allowing Nike, New Balance and even Umbro to adopt simple lines and kit designs rendering them more desirable to purchase. I applaud the equal use of red in the 'Climacool' shirt as too many Milan shirts have been dominated by the black. Adidas say that this kit was inspired by the kits worn between 1987-1997, which was, lets be honest just a simple and classic red and black striped shirt often adorned by the scudetto shield and 10 X champions star. I also welcome the return of the White socks as this stirs fond memories among the Rossoneri admirers of the halcyon days of the early 90's when AC Milan were invincible. But at £70 + £4.95 P&P I will remain an admirer and not a wearer.

All I can say is that the kit is a masterpiece
