The rumored shirt seems like it was true with the also rumored shorts.

Home one is fine, works well with shorts, not sure it'll look without them. I like the big game one. Away one is a mess

I like them.

Away one is a bit Stade Francais

Is it correct that the charity shirt will also be a European shirt as well as BIG GAME??

"The design inspiration for Harlequins’ 2017/18 away shirt came from adidas’ 'defend your territory' rugby theme for Autumn/Winter 2017 with a battle-worn camouflage featuring the boroughs of London. The camouflage pattern incorporates the quintessential Harlequins diamond."

Where's the diamond? Bit of a shame that it has nothing at all to do with Quins, just a standard addidas pattern

Not sure why people are so upset about the home one. It's not very exciting but it's pretty traditional.

I like the Big Game kit as well.

But the away kit is properly horrible. Not really sure what was going on in the design department that day.

so if you want it without the sponsors logo go to Lillywhites/Sports direct.
Don't like the shorts. Home shirts is OK and I like the away and the Charity shirt.

Yes the article says
Quote:
QUINS
The charity shirt will be worn at Big Game 10 when Harlequins face Northampton Saints and in all away European Rugby Champions Cup fixtures.

thumbs down Yep! I'm hoping that the club might be able to arrange some double header games with the Women's team playing before/after the Men, so that fans can support the game.

Love Kyle's expression in the away shirt. Mike looks very gormless in the Big Game one (slow work day!)

We have quite a good team I believe (Aylesford, who were basically Quins last season), managed to do the double.

I see the charity this year is not GOSH but the Harlequins Foundation.

Rubbish, all of them. Charity kit gets a pass for not being risible.

And as for camouflage and defending territory, grow up.

And despite all the speculative nonsense written on the other thread -- the kit is very nice, it's upholding (not wilfully destroying or whatever the ludicrous phrase was) the Quins history and tradition and looks fab.

Charity/Europe shirt is great -- and the change strip one is fine, looks a lot like the French end up with most times, think it's quite cool.

It must be awful having to find something else to apoplectic with rage about...

You are always going to be limited with the home shirt. That's why you can have fun with the other shirts. Looking back over the past, I don't think there are any that I have not really liked.

Not sure how people can hate the home shirt - it's a quins shirt. Not even quarters I know, but they often haven't been. £60 is a lot though for see through shirts though. I'll still end up getting them though, as I'm a sucker

I must admit I like all of them. Feared the home one would not be nice but I'll probably cave. Need to see it with cargo shorts or combats though and make my mind up then. Way nicer than I thought all the same.

Don't like the fact that the main shirt looks good when worn with the shorts but (in my opinion) looks awful when worn without.

Won't be buying any of them, nor the overpriced training gear, which will shock my mates as I normally buy everything!

Having seen them in action at the 7s, the home kit is even worse. The shorts and socks look absolutely ridiculous.

The away kit is actually OK at a distance.

But the home kit is absolutely ridiculous. I know I already wrote that, but I can't stress enough how absolutely ridiculous it is. Ridiculous. Absolutely so.

Thought the home kit looked fine. Think they could do without the socks, but the shorts are fine. Shame that there's so little black and green though on the sleeves though

Away one is dreadful.

Agree about the awful socks, but...

...Overall the home kit so nearly worked for me -& I'm dead old- but it was ruined by those 'orrible triple stripes on the shorts - why not be content with just the over-the-shoulder ones? - Can it be that Adidas actually think there's a danger people are going to buy/wear these awful shorts on their own/without the top, & hence NOT for once become the usual walking permanent advertising hoardings? -Fergoonissake!

Sorry, but with the three stripes and the panel design, it looks like someone was wearing a red t-shirt, and then put on the apron they wear when decorating, and tried to hide some of the paint spatters with a DHL logo. Yuck.
