The greatest difference compared to previous seasons is the sponsor logo. Yokohama Tyres is a Japanese company taking over from Samsung.
Otherwise are the core elements like they used to be. Blue jersey, blue shorts, and white socks.

Colombia 2015 Copa América Home Jersey Review
by Julian Smith , NYC
Colombia home jersey 2015
Colombia have recently found their second golden generation, with former stars Carlos Valderrama, Freddy Rincón, Faustino Asprilla, and René Higuita passing the torch to new heroes James Rodríguez, Radamel Falcao, Fredy Guarín, and Carlos Bacca. While the new kids still have a ways to go before reaching Valderrama’s caps record (111 for Colombia), Falcao has already become the leading goalscorer for his country, and his compatriots are playing on the most famous teams in the world: Real Madrid, Manchester United (on loan), Inter Milan, and so on. Check out this website that shows how these stars come from a relatively small area of the country! Currently ranked 4th in the world, Los Cafeteros have to believe this is their best chance to win the Copa América for the second time, having won their first at home in 2001.
Adidas have ensured that, regardless of their record in the competition, they will look fantastic. Their new home shirt is a blend of flash and fashion, with some interesting new design features compared to former kits.
The Shirt
Colombia home jersey number 10
Colombia’s 2015 Copa América home shirt keeps the longstanding tradition of the predominantly yellow shirt with red and blue accents. It uses the standard Climacool material, which is comfortable and soft compared to most other brands. What I like about the Adidas jerseys is the combination of breathable yet heavy material, so it feels nice on the body. It wears somewhat slim, but not tight like the authentic/player issue versions.

The shirt has a standard crew neck with a protruding collar. The chest opening closes with snap buttons; this is the first time I’ve ever seen this feature on a shirt. While you may think the metal bits are heavy or obstructive, it’s hardly noticeable. It may be slightly more useful to open/close, but I don’t love the way it looks.
Details
Colombia home jersey front number
The body of the shirt has a few strips of different shades of yellow, which is a nice little accent to add some diversity to the overwhelming yellow front.
Colombia home jersey neck details
The back of the neck features “Unidos Por Un País” (which translates to, “United For One Country”) in the colors of Colombia’s flag. This is printed with protruding plastic, which almost surely will come off with time. Adidas should have thought ahead, and screen printed it like the name/number set.

One of my favorite and least favorite design elements of the shirt is the cuffs on the arm holes and waist opening. I think the armhole cuffs look especially great, but the waist looks a bit awkward without the official shorts to complete the design.

Another interesting feature is the seams, which come in from the pit diagonally towards the center of the shirt. When I wear it, I don’t see any noticeable difference because of it, but I would be interested to hear if other people prefer or dislike it.

Printing

This edition of the Adidas country print is sleek and gets a few style points for the color and font accents to the numbers. The color suits the shirt well, and while I think the font is a little too thin, the consistency from letters to numbers makes it look just fine. The set is made of a plastic like material.

A wonderful shirt overall, but a couple of minor details keep it from being perfect. Surely this will be one to remember for Colombians for years to come.
As always, the official kit and printing are available to purchase from iDfootballdesk.

A quote:
A recent study by the research firm Ibbotson Associates shows that during the past decade investors in hedge funds, over all, would have done just as well putting their money straight into the S&P 500. “The amount of rent capture has been huge,” Woolley said. “Investment banking, prime broking, mergers and acquisitions, hedge funds, private equity, commodity investment—the whole scale of activity is far too large.” I asked Woolley how big he thought the financial sector should be. “About a half or a third of its current size,” he replied.

The Inter printing 2015/16 is from Stilscreen. White for the home jersey and blue for the away jersey. Stilscreen has been producing the Inter prints for a number of years by now. It changes practically every season. But it is only on the very rare occasion that the color is not white.

The Inter printing for the season 2015/16 is a new style. For the season 14/15 the printing was light blue. This time around it is plain white with a blue outline. Looks good on the black/blue jersey. Club logo as always at the bottom of the number.
More detailed photos to follow with regard to how the printing looks like fresh out of the packaging from the producer.

A solid and well-crafted product. Complete color block to prevent the color from the jersey to shine through the fragile white surface.
