^ Would look too similar to gc and swans though with the predominantly red jumper with red shorts.
We don't wear our clash against any 'red teams' tho.
Personally I prefer the white shorts, but I think a lot of people who grew up in the 70s/80s have a real soft spot for the red shorts.

Yeah, it's fun toying around with it though, because PBs with teal looks awesome. And without teal is it really possible to honor the near-quarter century as Port Power? Or is it part of the goal to erase that part of the club's history? I think you guys already kinda exist as a Frankenstein hybrid, PBs twice a year just adds to that IMO. Not meaning any shade by this - just my thoughts.
It's all gotten incredibly political at this stage. Purely because we've had so many issues wearing the guernsey, the current school of thought is that if we accept a compromise at this point then we'll be told that obviously the OG bars aren't that important to us, when we're actively trying to show how important they are.

If we had been allowed to wear the original bars at our leisure for the last 24 years, we'd probably have seen lots of cool variations without any opposition.

I reckon the white shorts makes us look like Sydney. With the white numbers it’s a lot of red and white.

I’d like to see red shorts with some proper black highlights. And maybe a slightly thicker black frame on the red sash.

Make it properly red and black.

Leave the white shorts for if we ever need an all-white kit.
Yeah agree with this, red with thick black side stripes or similar.

I hate the white shorts rule. There's no reason Essendon couldn't wear the red guernsey with black shorts against say, Geelong, Brisbane or North.

Yep, that's Eddie's fault. shouldn't even be a debate - clubs should be able to wear whatever they want.
I guess you can take solace in the fact that Port's brand is pretty good looking at the moment regardless.

I don't know if it's been done before, but is there a modernised (logo, no laces) version of this floating around this forum?

I for one hate Carlton's 'insipid white' clash jersey; was thinking a modern, variation of this with potentially yellow or even white shorts could be (or might already have been) knocked up?? Be interesting to see how it looks next to our 'clashes' with other sides...

Kinda a few here...

I feel like I made a design based off it years and years ago, can’t find it though.

It is? I was arguing with someone once who was adamant that Carlton and Geelong didn't have the same colour scheme, since Carlton's only official colour is navy blue.
Our emblem on the guernsey is white. Just like Essendon's colours are black and red because of their sash. If there was no CFC on the front, then I would argue we have no white. But we do, and it has stayed that way for 100 years. The reason why it hasn't changed is because our colours are navy blue and white, and white has been on the guernsey for 100 years.

Having white on the guernsey doesn't make it an official club colour
