The shirt maintains the club's traditional green body and white sleeves, with both bottle green and emerald green being used. A map of Edinburgh is sublimated in the material while the shirt features a thistle emblem on the reverse.

Stephen Sibbald wrote: “Really like it, good start from Joma.”

Tracey Smith added: “Hibs and Joma have smashed it well and truly out the park with this kit. Absolutely love it.”

Hibs fan Hope admitted: “I think I might be a wee bit in love.”

Claire Lawrie tweeted: “I like this.. I like this a lot.”

Jack Gillies was impressed: “That is a beauty – love the map of Edinburgh, great touch.”

Hollie Liddell said: “This is unreal!”

Stevie Carnie added: “One of the better Hibs strips recently! Would’ve preferred a white collar but overall, thumbs up.”

Stephen Watson was chuffed: “Big fan of this, colour is great, like the map idea and the sleeves are great. Well played.”

Charlie Banks was smitten: “That is the most beautiful kit I've ever laid my eyes on.”

Even Hearts fans were impressed, with @ViewfromGorgie writing on Twitter: “All joking aside about the new Hibs top... it's actually nice to see clubs doing something a bit different. I'm totally on board with the map of the city.”
