  1. I'm coming around on the Nike kits. IF you have to do monochrome shirt/shorts the contrast socks give a nice bit of colour. But the sleeves are still stupid.
  2. Hard to maintain that throwback aesthetic and cram the usual 2-3 sponsors on to every piece of kit.
  3. Banana custard!
  4. Only gripe is that the heraldic lion is hard to pull off without looking like so many other logos around the world. How well it stands out will depend on how the colours are used.
  5. Looks a bit like Sampdoria's kits went for a lie down.

  7. Yeah, not so good this year.
  8. Prepare to have your mind blown:
  9. Not that similar but the grey/fluoro gives flashbacks to this kit:
  10. Looks like something you'd see handed out to volunteers at a 1980s World Expo.
  11. Brisbane Roar unveiled their kits this week. Orange home kit is back to black shorts this season thankfully. White is the league away, grey is the cup away kit (which won't get a run as they were knocked out last night...). Strangely enough the home shirt is the same as the "one-off" kit worn vs Liverpool apart from the sponsor... I like the keeper kits, probably popping up everywhere this season in Umbro clubs?
  12. It might be red/white stripes but it just doesn't look like Sunderland... too much white.
  13. They might be aesthetically better, but it’s about the equivalent of giving Liverpool a hooped home shirt or white shorts. That thick red stripe with the white outline is PSG’s identity, as much as vertical stripes is for Barça, red shirts with white sleeves is for Arsenal, or all-red is for Liverpool. Actually Liverpools kit up to 1965 was to have white shorts with red and white striped socks. It was only when Bill Shankly took over they went all red. To say all red for Liverpool is factually incorrect. So you’re telling me Liverpool supporters would be pleased if the club came out with a kit including white shorts next season? If it was marketed as a throwback kit just like Arsenal did as the Redcurrant kit without the white sleeves then I doubt too much if it would cause controversy. Some (a minority of) fans complained when they moved the flames of remembrance from next to the badge to their own prominent spot on the back of the kit. It was bad enough that the adidas kits had "too much white on them" if you listen to some fans. There'd be riots if next season's kit had white shorts.
  14. One minor quibble on the SPFC kits, it used to be nice when the logo lined up with the red/white/black stripes on the kit, like it did on one of their old away kits.
  15. Oh Kuwait, its like 1991 all over again (though thankfully not really for them) Trying to find the Omani kits with black writing on a red nameplate on a white shirt. It has to be seen to be believed.
