Football Kit Development: A Kickette Guide For Manufacturers

Remember the other day when we were bemoaning the detrimental effect that kit re-sizing had on our bringing you the best in short tents? Well, since that sad day, Polish NT striker Arkadiusz Piech has shown us there is still room for optimism (although not much else) during Poland’s friendly against Bosnia on 16th December.
Presumably some kind of man parts/fabric snarl up caused this happy accident, but we’d like FIFA and kit developers everywhere to take note. We have no objection to a mid-thigh length in new short designs (speedo-type pelvic wear is quite off putting unless Francesco Totti is involved) but the fabric needs to be snug, stretchy and preferably transparent when wet. Study the above photo of Arkadiusz for further specifications.
Actually, maybe we should cut the hedging and just get them playing in something like this (left). Whaddya reckon? Too exploitative?
