The market for national team-kits in soccer-heavy countries like the UK is huge, and while swim suits don’t necessarily have the same main-stream value (it would look awfully strange to walk into a Saturday night soiree in a jammer), the English swim team’s official racing garb for the 2014 Commonwealth Games could become big sellers.
Arena is the official “aquatics wear supplier” of the team, taking that from Kukri, who is supplying the rest of Team England’s wear for the games.
The design features a burgundy suit adorned with a gray rendering of the England Lion – developed as the key symbol of the team.
The increasing value of these team kits is evidenced in that for the first time ever, Team England will sell a full line of replica gear.
As of now, only generic clothing and warmups are available through the Kukri Sports website: http://www.kukrisports.co.uk/
