The Royals unveiled some minor changes to their kits for the 2012 season today. It’s nothing particularly radical. If one didn’t know that they had taken place one might not even notice. They’re good changes though, subtle but clearly an improvement.
The biggest change probably that the powder blue cap has been abandoned. I am quite glad of this, as I never liked them. The only other change that is readily noticeable with the naked eye is that the colour of the lettering on the powder blue jerseys has been changed to white. Otherwise there are very subtle changes of colour, font and some piping. I quite like them, they’ll look good on national TV next October.
