Cape Town - The All Blacks' famous black jersey is about to get another overhaul.

According to the All Blacks website, the jersey will be getting a few changes from supplier adidas, who will reveal the new strip in Auckland on Friday.

"It's innovating the jersey since 1999 and always taking it to the next level," adidas Rugby wrote on Twitter. "Are you ready for #BlackReinforced?"

The jersey was described as the "strongest ever".

Video clips have been have been circulating under the hashtags #ForceOfBlack and #BlackReinforced.

All Blacks loose forward Jerome Kaino features in one, showing off recent All Blacks jerseys, but the public will have to wait until Friday to see the newest version.

The last time they had a new jersey made was at the end of 2014, which was supposed to be the blackest jersey yet.

It lost the white collar, the white emblems looked more grey and they were tailored to fit better.

The All Blacks will debut the jersey in their next match against Ireland in Chicago on November 5, after which they will tackle Italy in Rome, Ireland for a second time in Dublin and France in Paris.
