The 2017 one just looked like they were trying to use the left over orange material.

Bit like the Melbourne public transport buses and trams back in the early 80s which, as legend has it, were all painted orange because the Vic Govt got a bargain deal on the unwanted orange paint from GMH after they stopped making Toranas.

At least the orange works with the blue. Yes it's out there but it is effective if done right.

1000000x better than matching blue with ******* turquoise like they did last year. Even good looking apparel was ruined by that sh*t colour.

Dunno WTF "high fashion" has to do with a tough working class football club.

I like to look good as often as possible. Look good, feel good. puff the chest out, shoulders back.

I think versatility is important.

When I buy North gear I don't want it to be limited to a certain situation. I'd prefer to be able to wear it anywhere and it still look acceptable.

2017 allowed that. 2016, 2018, and 2019 did not.

Wanted to buy a new nmfc hoodie And support the club with some new merch so went into Rebel to try one on before ordering from the Roo Shop.

Compared to other clubs ours is just awful and changed my mind pretty quickly after trying it on.

Feels cheap, it’s shiny, and has a disgusting embossed plastic logo. Good luck keeping warm in it as well.

Canterbury needs to offer up something like ISC does for the NRL. Good winter hoodies for standing in the outer.

After the first hoodie (which was excellent) I added one on as a permanent addition in my membership package. They really vary but have never reached the same heights. While everything you say is correct this year’s version is surprisingly warm and water resistant compared to what you would think looking at it.

Which hoodie are you talking about? The training hoodie or the ultra hoodie? I got the training hoodie and it definitely has embroidered logos. And it's remarkably warm despite being light and thin.

The zip up hoodie they’ve put out this year is the absolute 🦆’s nuts.
