"Echo of Glory": Tottenham unveils new kits

My understanding -- not yet confirmed -- is that Sounders will wear their pitch black kits tomorrow, which would seem to indicate Spurs will be in their new home lilywhites (since their new away kits are black). We're also told that the new kits will show up at the Pike Place Market events today. In any case, here's a release from Tottenham:

The kits reference one of Bill's most famous quotes - 'It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory.' This 'Echo of Glory' inspiration pays tribute to Bill's achievements and significant contribution to the Club. Fans will have the opportunity to engage further throughout the season via an immersive, digital experience, which will invite Spurs fans to add their own voice to the 'Echo of Glory' by tweeting messages of support to the team ahead of the new season using the hashtag #SeizeGlory. The supporter messages will be digitally sewn around the body of Brazil midfielder Paulinho to create the new home shirt.

The home kit is a traditional lilywhite shirt set off by a navy blue horizontal stripe running across the chest. A jacquard runs across the shoulders which includes the words 'Echo of Glory' taken from Bill's quote together with a pattern inspired by the famous Bill Nicholson gates which lead up to White Hart Lane stadium on Bill Nicholson Way. Yellow taping on the sleeve cuff and collar adds an additional colour flash to set off solid navy blue shorts and white socks.

In the away kit, a yellow highlight is more visible down the front of the black shirt, with 11 stripes signifying the number of trophies won during Bill's reign. Yellow taping is also replicated along the sides of the accompanying black shorts and socks.

The kits are available to purchase today at Spurs shops and the Club’s official website http://
