What are the chances of the change strip and the third strip all being equally fugly?

They are exactly the same just in different colours.

Pale Blue/Green for away kit iirc.

Black on Black for Euro kit.

Away kit is more like two tone blue, one sky and one navy.

Johns, if it does tank it doesn't affect Tigers, one of the joys of out sourcing is that if it fails Kitbag take that risk but if it comes off the up lift is shared.

I don't love it but i'll buy it. I don't hate it either I'm very mixed, i like the thought and really it was only a matter of time before we did play in tiger's stripes, at least we are only getting it for one year.

Fugly is a portmanteau word combining f.cking and ugly.

Its a disgrace don't people know children read this site, they might as well put porn in their signatures, little Johnny is now morally ruined blah blah blah etc.

Some years ago Gloucester had a new shirt designed by the owners daughter I think, it did not sell and they changed it.

No johns, Kitbag have already agreed a minimum payment to Tigers regardless of merchandise sales. So a complete tanker only affects us in that any potential uplift is lost, which obviously the club wouldn't bank on.

To be clear Kitbag pay Tigers X, if Kitbag earn <X then they take that hit, if they earn >X then that up lift is shared.

Although obviously poor sales might affect the renegotiation of that deal later on.

It reminds me of a 7s top. I have to admit, the more I see it the more I like it. I can totally understand the issues from those who don't. I don't think we'll see too many people in it next season. Could be a collectors edition!



There are things in the Leicester club you cannot buy; the ethos, the history and the spirit.

I'm warming to it as well, though I still don't think I'd buy it in the home colours - maybe the away strip, though. Still really looking forward to replacing the platinum kit.

Its not just that its ugly, its just so "not Tigers". Its like a Halfords spoiler on an Aston Martin. Nose stretchers on the Mona Lisa.



Defense, defense, defense, defense. Yeah, yeah, yeah !

NOW!! That's what I call an ugly design.

Can't wait to see it stretched over the torsos of the front rowers.

It'll not be stretched over mine.

I like the stipes design but really loathe the bib, completely spoils what could have been an innovative design. Maybe the non-player (traditional) shirt will look better?

Check out the no wonder the players look unhappy thread for cotton version, I like it and will probably buy one, tho whether thats this year at full price or next at half is debatable.

New kit looks absolutely ace!
Hopefully ours (Sale - I think we've switched to Canterbury too) is as good.

That is proper horrible. Gob-smackingly naff. If I wanted to look like I'm wearing a giant bib, I'd go to Morthercare and buy one cheap to wear over a proper shirt.

Wallet very firmly snapped shut - I won't be buying one of those even when they're being flogged off for 15 spond a throw.

No wonder Canterbury went into administration.

Suddenly seems to have been released earlier than schedule on the offy - probably in response to the leaked images:
