I've seen it in the sports shop (JD Sports maybe... near McDonalds) near Wembley, but not sure if they still have it.

Does anyone know if the away Elite shirt is available in any of the shops? It has been sold out for more than a month in the web shop and doesn't seem to be restocked. I have emailed the club and asked but no answer.
Kitbag.com has a few left in XL... if you look through this thread I put up a 10% off code that I used successfully in response to the same question from other SC'ers. IMO they won't be doing a restock on these shirts, pretty sure its a first come first served basis as with the 'Limited' third shirt releases from past seasons.

Both Niketown and Sportsdirect on Oxford street had them this week.

Dazzle camo. Really? WTF is that name?
It's actually a real thing, dating back to the First World War: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazzle_camouflage

However our kit isn't dazzle camo. For it to be dazzle camo the sections on the shirt would be in greatly contrasting colours, not a difference that is barely noticeable.

So they researched, liked the name presumably, thought camo + bright yellow = dazzling, and to hell with history

(PS I like the kit altho I'd like the yellow training top worn by Eriksen on that link turned into a proper third kit more, rather than what seems to be the Europe 2nd kit, as this is - hence the clash with our away kit)

I was looking at it on my phone at first and it looked ok but looks much better on my laptop, where you can see the camo pattern coming through more. The contrast with the bright detailing and lettering is quite nice.

I do prefer the more cleaner looking home and away strips though.

i don't mind it, but when will that colouring save us from a clash that our away kit encounters? they are very similar.

Geez, my first thought after reading that incorrectly was 'why the fuck are we dedicating a kit to Jason Dozzell?'
