Thankfully they didn't last too long each time!
My preference is dark for main jumper, light for clash jumper, but if teams like Hawthorn and North Melbourne wanted to have light jumpers as their main ones then that can be accommodated with appropriate clash jumpers (theirs and other teams).
I'm all for Hawthorn keeping the gold top but like with Geelong and like North didn't want there needs to be some give on the shorts.
Brown shorts against royal/red, gold or white against black/navy/maroon/purple.
Here we are!
I'm online via a computer and here are my findings from a recent trip to an AFL store.
This simply says 'Essendon Media Polo', I was sure we saw the little circles design on a previous polo, but it seems they wont.
A very simple design.
What is unusual about this polo is everything is stitched apart from the arm piping and oddly, the Puma logo which is heat pressed on.
Also there is no tag, only the heat pressed information on the inside.
Why only heat press the Puma logo??
Essendon's polo may be very simple, but the ISC design idea has made its way to the Collingwood 2018 media polo.
Marketed as a grey shirt too, so it's not the lighting.
While we are on the topic of Collingwood, here you can see on the infants jumper, on the jumper tag it has the CFC monogram, not the club logo.
Perhaps that will make it to the full sided jumpers (from memory it had) and may not appear on the back of the jumper.
Here we have the North Melbourne jumper, with anniversary logo watermarks.
A new template cut for Puma?
New Balance collar, and notice on the inside of the collar, it's rubber printed (heat pressed) "My Heart Beats True" wording, we usually see it sublimated.
The back of Melbourne's jumper.
No sponsor, no MCC logo.
Perhaps the oddest jumper I saw, the collar has the old pre-2010 wool material around it, yet the box with the 'G' is the same as the jumper.
I caught a look at the back, looks awful, but it was at the top so I couldn't get a good image.
We all know the story here, just another picture.
- No changes to the Richmond clash
- No sponsor on the Demons or Eagles
- Geelongs jumper is so, so bad
- The AFL Store is pretty rubbish
