'Stop it Hibs I'm going to be skint!' - new pinstripe away kit proves a winner with fans
Hibs new home kit for the 2021/22 campaign is proving a hit among supporters.
The white shirt design with green pinstripes has a retro theme having been inspired by the designs used in the 1980s and 90s.
It is the second new strip to be launched this summer 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” added that Joma are “hitting it out the park.”
Here is a selection of fan reaction from social media ...
Steven Gilroy: Best strip for years. Proper retro feel to it. Minted.
Keith O'Flaherty: Maybe with a collar instead of the v neck but that aside I like it . Couple new players now would be nice
Matty Fairnie: Love it - retro and new at the same time. Big thumbs up from me.
Conal Tracey (@ConalGTracey): Oh Jesus the 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.
Paul Morton (@pmorton1980): A future classic. Fans will be wearing that to cup finals in 30 years time.
Oscar Ramage (@OramageOfficial): That’s a thing of beauty! Hit it out the park with both kits this season
Darren (@DarrenNicholl1): That is the most beautiful hibs kit I have ever seen
Brian Roth (@BrianRoth95): Okay wallet, looks like Hibs are back at it again…
Luke Cunningham (@phluke_C): Sign Joma up for the next 20 years both kits are class
JackGillies1875 (@JackGillies6): Joma have pulled it out the bag yet again excellent away shirt I love the clean retro look that we have went for. At this rate I’ll be declaring bankruptcy
Lee (@Lmc2105): Hibs need to stop doing this am going to be skint!!!
Even fans of other clubs have been left impressed with Rangers fan @Aye_Ready_1872 commenting: “Putting my blue tinted glasses away .... that's actually alright. If that was blue pin stripes instead of green and a Rangers badge instead, I'd be quite happy with that. Good job. Better than the majority of the monstrosities we see these days.”
However, you cannot please everyone with a small number of Hibs fans left disappointed.
Riz Harcus: Just looks like a training top. It looks "fake" and totally underwhelmed with it. Shame really, as I had a lot of hope for it.
