The maroon top has been complemented by Umbro diamonds trim at the sleeve cuffs, a subtle stripe through the middle, plus white piping around the collar.

The unveiling of the kit arrived with the announcement that charity Save the Children have renewed their partnership with the club for another three years.

The reaction to the new strip was largely positive:

@LiamBell5: “New @JamTarts kit is a belter. Had to order it for the wee man straight away.”

@Morayhmfc51: “Best top in ages.”

@RealDaveBomb: “Thing of beauty.”

@izaak_coyle51: “In love with new @JamTarts strip. Already bought, productive morning.”

Steven Blyth: “Better than the Puma kit I’d say, really like the 70s touch with the diamonds and the old badge in the middle of shoulders. Subtle difference in maroon down the centre is a good feature too.”

Andrew-Henry Bowie: “Absolutely magnificent effort. Simple and classy.”

@David_G_83: “Retro-style. Love it, Hearts, well done!”

@ross54008377: “Absolute peach of a kit.”

@Hmfc88Jamie: “The old school style is ace.”

Some fans had their reservations:

@DavSmit10_2: “Prefer it with a collar.”

@Paphos_16: “£48 for an Umbro tee shirt!?”

David Lawler: “Better than last season but very similar to the puma kit from a couple of seasons ago.”

Elaine Wylie: “No a huge fan, but will buy it anyway!”

@CRowlands7: “Shocking, let’s add Umbro logos to the sleeves of the old top n punt it out at another 40/50 quid! Who gets the lead on designing these tops cz they need sacked or a mass wage decrease, that tops maybe worth 4 quid an hour n it would have only taken an hour to design it!!”
