    That is absolutely horrible. I know I'm generally quite negative but I actually mean that. Looks like my old school uniform all those years ago.

    A little uninspired, but its old-school Watford and I think i'll grow to like it. As someone else said, its all a bit 1988 Eagle Express, and the 'keepers jersey has achieved the impossible and made Gomes look the spitting image of Steve Sherwood. Remarkable.

    That collar is horrific. Looks like a polo shirt that you might wear on a holiday that gets a bit punchy. Might buy the keepers kit!

    A vast improvement on that stripey thing from last season

    It looks like someone from the England rugby union team has wandered into shot - oh, no, it's Ben Watson.

    If the away top had been black then all three 'main' WFC colours would've been covered so as much as I like the white shirt I think maybe a black top would've been better.
    Otherwise... it's this years model. Next season it'll change again with exactly the same like/don't like/meh responses no matter what it looks like.

    Two great kits

    I'm just glad we've finally released a kit and the team have something to play in this season. I can relax now, it's been a stressful month or so.

    Quite like the nod towards older kits.

    Yeah but without the top pockets for pencils n that

    We will need different coloured socks at some point, don't think the different colour at the top will sway a referee.

    Why is/has white been included in our kits?

    Oh dear... Look very poor.

    Looks fine. From a distance on tv from my armchair it'll look better than last seasons.

    Last season's distinct look was always going to be hard to follow but the yellow is far too bright, so bright that I doubt we would need to use the floodlights next season.

    I think the sponsor is too high up, drop it down a couple of inches and it looks a bit less of a Bovvy Market jobby.

    The shirt was never going to be for me.

    I'm probably in the minority and insulting half the people on here, but I've always thought that people who wear polo shirts buttoned up to the top, look like tvvats.

    Troy looks like he's about to hit up the fruities in spoons, with a bottle of WKD in each hand. It's just not slick or original in the slightest, just try hard Watford town centre on a Friday night.
  22. Chumlax

    Yeah, after all this, I don't like it at all.

    The red should be left for the away kit, especially with that bloody stripe down the side of the body, lest it end up looking like a kid went mental with their crayon set, or indeed a McDonalds mascot's outfit.

    The yellow is, as someone mentioned earlier, way too bright/lemony, our colours are and should be a golden yellow and this certainly is not.

    The logos and sponsor look way to close together, and like there is therefore too much dead space on either side of the torso.

    I don't understand the collar, it's too retro a choice for me and doesn't serve any purpose, especially since one of the things I preferred about pre-existing Dryworld designs was their v-neck collars.

    The oddest thing is the bottom of the shirt. I noticed this on the QPR shirts as well: they don't fit at the bottom. They bag out, and hang awkwardly away from the body. How hard is it to make a shirt that follows the shape of a human body? A friend suggested it's in the vein of Fred Perry polos, so the fat old lads can have a good fit on the shoulders whilst still leaving room for their Stella-bellies, but if that is the case, it's a ****ing weird choice.

    I think you're in the majority to be honest, and I certainly agree with you when you say that people who do polo shirts up to the top look like bellends.

    It's just an all round crap shirt. The collar is too small, the buttons are a terrible touch, the shirt as a whole looks v shiny and the sponsor now looks even worse. Why have they changed the alignment?

    Terrible effort, Dryworld :dismay:

    You guys all know that you're allowed to undo the buttons right? Troy isn't going to come round and slap you if you don't.

    Hmm, glad to see that people are more interested in a new kit than a Euro semi final featuring one of the best performing teams of any tournament in the biggest game in their history.

    I'd rather watch paint dry than Wales v Portugal.

    You're definitely thinking about it too much. It's a piece of overpriced material that you don't even have to purchase or wear at any point in your life. All you have to do is watch some blokes wear it for an hour and a half every week.
  28. Chumlax

    But, I like thinking about things.

    It's absolutely beautiful.

    Well done to all those involved in the design process. I love it.

    It's top drawer. I'm not getting how it's being labelled 'disgusting' - it's a very inoffensive retro design, far better than the ****e we've had in recent years.
  31. With A Smile

    With A Smile First Team

    Exactly this - Its a football shirt

    Sadly i can remember when the first time you saw the new lit was on the first day of the season and no one wet their pants about it

    It's yellow and has red and black trim. It's not new, not a revaloution and not innovative.

    Its a fooking football shirt
  32. Maninblack

    You'd think this is a fashion writers' discussion at a post-catwalk party judging by some of the comments here!

    It's a football shirt that is overpriced. Like every club, every year. It's yellow. What else matters?

  33. hornetgags

    So why have the buttons? What purpose do they serve except to make the shirt look silly.
  34. hornetboy1

    Quite an ordinary shirt design this season. Run of the mill, middle of the road. Not good, not bad. Bang average.
  35. Jellyman

    I think you need to look at yourself, getting outraged over a collar, and think: 'What purpose do I serve, except to make myself look silly?'

    It's a collar. You can button it up, or you can unbutton it. It looks totally normal, just as that particular design has in thousands and thousands of other kits.

    'What purpose does it serve if you undo the buttons?'...dear god.
