Hibs unveil new 'clean and classic' away kit inspired by 80s and 90s styles
Hibs have unveiled their brand new away kit for the 2021/22 season.
The white shirt design with green pinstripes has a retro theme having been inspired by the designs used in the 1980s and 90s, with the club promoting a ‘Pure and Simple’ branding message in official launch photos.
It is the second new strip to be launched following the switch to manfucturers Joma. The new home shirt was released earlier this month to much acclaim, and the new away design is proving equally popular with supporters.
Former Hibs striker and current pundit Tam McManus hailed it as “a thing of beauty” adding that Joma are “hitting it out the park.”
Other comments from fans on social media included Steven Gilroy, who stated: “Best strip for years. Proper retro feel to it. Minted.”
Conal Tracey added: “Hibs have done it again. A long time since we've had a proper nice white strip and that's a beauty. The shorts are also so smart, adding unnecessary but amazing detail. Joma have done brilliantly for their first 2 kits.”
Hibs’ creative manager Peter Burt, the man behind the design, said: “The ambition was to create a kit that drew inspiration from the popular kit styles of the 80s and 90s, whilst keeping the design fresh.
“The pinstripe design is something new for a Hibernian kit and, coupled with the cuff and v-neck detailing, gives us a clean and classic look for the season ahead.”
Hibs also plan to release a third kit this season, which is currently in production, although no release date has yet been been set.
