The last decent apparel sponsor we had was Puma back in our Premiership era, although Russell Athletic may have been around in 03. Since then it has been one no name brand after the other. Obviously many don’t really care about the benefits of a solid apparel sponsor and getting decent merchandise as a result, but the last few have been as bad as the next, BLK, Koo Ga, Majestic etc. Even still, there is nothing wrong with desiring a known apparel sponsor that will actually produce decent gear.
Puma didn't take over from Russell until 2007. Since them, it's been KooGa / BLK (same company, just rebranded) and Majestic, in that order (no etc). Hardly call either "no name". BLK had a third of all AFL clubs plus a bunch of international and club rugby teams before they ran into financial strife. And up until this year, Majestic were the official on-field uniform supplier of all 30 Major League Baseball teams.

Had some Puma stuff from 1997. I’ve still got a polo and tracksuit. Stuff has barely frayed. Superbly made clothing.

**** RANT Alert ****


That jumper looks ****ing atrocious.

Collar looks ridiculous. The gold sleeves are far too thick. The blue yoke is back to being too low. Lion’s too large. Stitching looks cheap. Looks like it’s been washed with a cup of bleach in my old recycled Kelvinator.


Grr... And it’s ****ing freezing outside.
