    Good evening all! I've had something I wanted to discuss with the forum in the same vein as the Weagles have done with their wings jumper, but on a smaller scale.

    Obviously we now have one of the best clash jumpers in the league, however as it stands I and after bringing up the issue a few times several others are disappointed with the look of the current home jumper:

    [​IMG]

    My personal gripes are essentially the back being overly dark, the imbalance of colours on the front (black red white black black) from each cuff across the jumper, and in the past there has been mentions from others of a likeness to Essendon/Collingwood with such a dark emphasis on the jumper.

    In determining a replacement I've always found the stock standard 2010 home jumper style that we've had for years as the best balance of colours for the tri panel, as shown below:
    [​IMG]

    For the point of discussion, what's everyone think of the above change for one and failing that particular change, if we were to attempt to get the club to make any change to the home jumper, what would be the best way to go about it?

    I'm really disappointed that the white collar and cuffs have been gone for 5 years now since it makes a huge difference, although I always thought they were a tad too thick and round in 2010.

    If we could apply the white collar and cuffs to the current template, it would be perfect.

    Our clash guernsey is beautiful and needs to stay for as long as possible. :hearts:

    A poll would be nice mods just to get an overall opinion base without the need to post?

    White collar and cuffs would be good, perhaps mostly as a point of difference for our club, and as something that is quintessentially St Kilda, but they need to be executed better than in 2010 IMO. For whatever reason the 2010 jumper didn't sit right with me.

    The only white cuffed ones that looked good were the piped ones, the 2010 era looked awful.

    I actually like the 2011 - 2012 black pointed collars myself.

    Based on what people are saying now, how would we feel about white collars and cuffs on the home jumper template we have now?

    I liked our 2011 home gurnsey.

    I'm a fan of the full black cuffs.

    04-06 candy strip wins easily though.

    Hated our 2011-12 home jumper. Current one is an improvement over that but would prefer white cuffs/collar.

    I played around on Photoshop to see what a white collar and cuffs would look like on our current home guernsey... it looks ridiculously good!

    Here's the original for comparison.

    Ever since we wore this jumper ive been walking around in a hypnotic trance saying " Boobies boobies boobies" over & over in my head:eek:

    Actually, come to think of it ive been saying that in my head since i was about 13 so maybe it wasnt the jumper:drunk::drunk:

    I like the 2010 jumper, but I would Like to see the white panel slightly wider.

    On another note, 'Est 1873' makes me very proud. Many world famous sporting clubs can't boast of such longevity.
