The sooner they get rid of that jumper, the better.

I don't know if it's just me, but I can't stand it. It's terrible. If I was given a choice between the Power Rangers and that, I'd pick the Power Rangers
I don’t think it is worse than the power ranger, but it is a pretty useless clash jumper when compared to the white one port have worn previously (the teal preseason was even better). You are right that the sooner they ditch it, the better.

What exactly do you mean by individually weeded?
When they peel the protective plastic off the wording, you can still see a square around the lettering, showing that it's just one big sticker. Weeding means you cut out around each letter (usually done by a laser cut). From a distance it would look alright, but up close you'll see a big square around that print

I'm pretty conservative about clash jumpers – wear em if they're cool, but I like the idea of the home team wearing what they want and the away wearing what they have to (with white shorts) – but the Showdown always seemed exempt from the complaints on this board. It's really not that different from Essendon or Richmond v Carlton when one wears white shorts.

For me, now that Port have the white number panel the Showdown works alright as a Crows home game with Port in white shorts. The reverse is certainly a bit messy.

So... what jumpers do Collingwood have?

Normal home with 2000-present white on black. Then the mostly white jumper with three black stripes. Then the half-half white and black strip with pinstripes.

And tonight they're wearing the normal home but it has pin stripes?

They have three.

Home

Away (home with pinstipes)

Clash (white base, pinstripes, black sidepanels)

The all-white with just three black stripes was dropped after the 2017 season.

The white stripes seem noticeably fatter than the black stripes inbetween. Is this normal, or is it the pinstripes that create this effect?

Or is it just some sort of illusion?

Actually pretty neutral

It's an illusion. Without pinstripes the stripes were the same width but the white popped more.

My issue with it is it looks awful, silver is barely even a club colour for them, and its sort of halfway between a light and dark guernsey without really being either of them. Creates more clashes than it solves.
