The reason I picked the kit from the 70s (which is essentially the same thing we wore until the mid 90s) is because we haven't really gotten it right in the printed jumpers era. The stripes are almost always too thin with way too much white space on the sides. It's not impossible to do it better, Collingwood's efforts in the last couple of years have been pretty close to what I think North should do. The new Puma strip is a huge improvement over what came before and I think it might already be my favourite strip since 2000.
The early 2000's one was pretty close to perfect like the 70s off the top of my head

has the same problem with the huge white space on the sides that our printed jumpers have always had. It's because of the way bigger sizes are done, they don't widen the stripes they just print the same pattern on a bigger piece of fabric

That was always my least favourite Port strip among the originals. I personally thought the Ansett Cup one, with the lightning bolt down the middle, was the best actual footy jumper. Until the chevron came along anyway. My Port pick would be early chevron with the full black back. I know the number panel is supposed to be a pear thing but all black with white numbers just looked so much more badass.

This would be my Port pick. All black, slick as. Back sponsor matches the colour scheme. Perfect.

Yep that Port guernsey looks clean as when watching highlights from back then. Nice template too.

Also when watching highlights from then I really appreciate how vibrant our 2014 Puma jumper was. The round collar also looked much better there than with BLK and O'Neills this year.

Yeah the Puma colours were ace, second only to Adidas imo. Loved the sponsors from that era too how they got rid of the white and made the text red.

The side panel is a dealbreaker though. White outline on the numbers not ideal either.
