No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. The top photos is a player issued jumper while the bottom one is a replica as sold in the club shop. You will note that the neck area is black on the top photo. This is the pocket for the GPS tracker.Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me but these are two pics of the jumper for 2021.
Now, they aren't the same--if you look at the cut off trim section.
The one the players wear is black yet the one the club is selling is white.
Minor detail perhaps but when you have one home jumper, it should be the same version throughout from players and then to fans to access/purchase.

Would make sense. We can’t use the name Holden forever especially with them no longer the sponsor.Somebody on Nick's reckons the Holden Centre will also change to the Nike Centre with an announcement next week. Anybody else heard that?
Never read washing instructions in my life but always wash clothes before wearing themI think you're the only person I've ever heard of who actually follows the label instructions and washes their clothes before the first wear.
This is unfortunate, even ISC had embraided logos, just a symptom of the Nike mass-produce model
Playing 160 games a season helpsi was watching some US baseball yesterday to kill 15 minutes and all the stuff they wear looks much like it would have done 100 years ago. No logos, just team guernsey. There was a tick or two but not noticeable. Strangely, the players in this league are probably paid the most of any sport so it seems the people who run the sport can find other ways to pay the bills. I'd be willing to contribute to a fund to get rid of that emirates logo.
its a good point but it would be easy to sell real estate on their guernseys... but obviously the income doesn't buy their connection with the past.Playing 160 games a season helps
Japanese and they are a quality brand.its a good point but it would be easy to sell real estate on their guernseys... but obviously the income doesn't buy their connection with the past.
about the jumpers themselves, I was just checking out some cheap camera accessories that i got for my nikon camera.....cheap chinese brand... the filter bag is all stitched with the logo stitched on. The same for the lens bag. And yet for $100+ guerneys, they cant be bothered using something better than contact glue.. the reality is when you buy a guernsey, you're paying for the CEO of the apparel company's next ski holiday.
I'm talking about the accessories " I was just checking out some cheap camera accessories that i got for my nikon camera.....cheap chinese brand "Japanese and they are a quality brand.
With most manufacturing (not sure about apparrel), the extra quality is because they have factories that they run - whereas smaller brands use subcontractors.I'm talking about the accessories " I was just checking out some cheap camera accessories that i got for my nikon camera.....cheap chinese brand "
The fact is nike gets it stuff made in asian factories by subcontractors "Most of the factories are located in Asia, including Indonesia, China, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Pakistan, Philippines, and Malaysia."
If nike stuff is better than star athletic its because they gave the subbies a little more money to make the item....maybe $15 rather than $10 for each guernsey...and they pass on that extra cost to the customer and add a little more for michael jordan and for the CEO's villa in the south of france and the bonuses for the board
