Shirt Alert: Germany 2018 World Cup Adidas Home Shirt

The World Champions will arrive in Russia next summer wearing a modern interpretation of one of the country’s most famous jerseys worldwide, the iconic 1990 shirt. This is how you do an international shirt. Beautifully bespoke with a nod to the past, fit for a title defence.

The Germany 2018 World Cup home shirt builds on a classic design with an improved and reworked performance silhouette featuring dropped shoulder cut lines. In short, it’s everything you’d want from an international home shirt. Minimal but busy, clean but 90s dirty. The Three Stripes simply don’t make bad Germany shirts. Never have done, never will do. But, even by their high standards, this is right up here with the very best.

The shirt is constructed of a two-fabric component collar with the words “Die Mannschaft” on the reverse of the neck. A gold World Cup winner badge features on the front of the jersey and a special sign-off on the inside of the collar pays homage to the link between the new kit and the kit of the 90s.
