Wow, if only they had a previous, perfectly good design that matched this exact criteria... 🤔

Oh wait!

You didn't read what I said properly. I said I would like to see it limited to just to orange lines akin to the Never Surrender uniform. Maybe mixed with white, just something more traditional than the bold G lines. Here's a visual I made up in MS Paint of what I was describing. Also, when I mean monogram I mean similar to something like Carlton's monogram, not just a bold letter.

Yes, but no. Keep the orange cuffs on the home, white numbers and then I would probably try to have the orange socks with charcoal top.
I'd have to design it to see it my way I guess 😂🤷‍♂️
Have changed the cuffs but I like the orange numbers and the socks that mimic the jumper.

That wasn't a dig at you, for what it's worth - more at the club for changing a decent design!

Truth be told I didn't read the 'lines' part - good in theory, obviously that chevron one is Port so that's a no, but an orange and white sash outline would work pretty well I think.

RE monograms, again I knew what you were hinting at but good luck with the letters GWS and making them look decent together 😅

Yeah the original GWS jumper was great, only issue was the back but otherwise I could've seen it go 20 years without needing a change. Shame they have moved from it, but if they are going to change it up I hope they fully embrace that flashy identity instead of half arsing it. Kind of like the Oregon Ducks in College Football who are known for producing some of the cleanest uniforms.

The V design concept was kinda based off Sydney's heritage V uniform with the Never Surrender orange lines. I wasn't thinking Port's chevrons which in turn are similar to SA's state uniform design.

Never surrender needs to be a lock for the giants as their primary guernsey. The all orange is great too, would love to see them wear the charcoal shorts with it, instead of the white.

Without tooting my own horn, I’m yet to see a GWS home kit concept better than the one I made which I reckon subconsciously draws from a few I’ve seen here, so my apologies if you’ve done similar, but if so then you’ve aced it lol. Dark back to go with a dark front, not overdoing the orange so the smaller amount pops and a massive ******* G, the biggest visual identifier they have along with the colour G. The stroke around the G comes down to personal preference but I like splitting the white and orange up. (Obviously ignore the light kit for the purposes of this post)

I feel like, It kinda reminds me of the old Paddlepop lion with the way the yoke kinda bends around the G

Hell no
I have zero jumper design skills but would love to see a mock up of a red suns jumper (red just slightly darker than current home, i think our indigenous one this year was a tad darker) with a yellow yoke (but a round yoke, like a sun in the sky) and a blue wavy horizontal line below it (like the bulldogs i guess but a single line).
