Better.

That said, I'm a bit disappointed they didn't play around with their own logo. After all it has three lines and the last of it is white text with a red background. I would have taken the normal jersey, erased the UAE flag from it, made the background for the UAE green, and keep the 2nd line ("TEAM") and the 3rd line ("Emirates") as they are. You would have an italian flag on the jersey, so now you just have to extend the 3 stripes around the whole jersey and you basically have the same jersey but with the team logo incorporated in the flag. Would look a bit cooler imo.

Aru's new champ jersey looks even more ugly now. It's still pathetic for an Italian champ jersey and now the flag doesn't add up with the jersey design at all anymore. Absolutely atrocious. Should've stayed with Astana. And Lampre better should've folded 2 years ago. What a useless team.

Geee guys, you are pretty harsh, compared to some horrible national jerseys we have been seing lately this is classy, sober, elegant. The red on the jersey is a bit bigger to give more overall balance with the black legs when standin, but from atop with the back curving the jersey will look really good. honestly a very solid design. We could only wish for the italian jersey to have a similar problem !

Well, except for Gilbert's red shorts, this is about as 'bad' as it can get for a Belgium champion's jersey. That's the benefit of a national federation with proper standards. Even RadioShack Leotard had to do a proper one! As such, we should have higher standards as well.

Honestly the "bad" there.. This a really solid national champ jersey.

If they reversed the black and white on the shoulders and widened the bands to be like Pippo’s kit up thread it would be alright.

Good thing the team is called minsk cause one might think this is the porteguese champ.

Not sure what you expect them to do, given that the flag is, for the most part, a broad red band above a narrower green band. Like the jersey is.
