I got the new strip today about 12.00 today expecting huge crowds at the hearts shop but it was dead nobody there.

It's quite clearly a different shirt, even if it is 100% polyester (which looking at previous Umbro shirts, seems to be the case).

 

For one, the neck is different in the Sports Direct bargain basement link you've posted.  The sleeves don't have any design to them, the stripe pattern is different (the Hearts version has less fabric overlap, the "fit" of the shirt looks different, and there is obviously no Hearts branding or sublimated design on the basic one.


However, all football shirts are overpriced and that is just the way it is.  You think those "pro" versions of the English team's shirts are anywhere near worth £100?  Go and buy any current season shirt from any team and it will cost you the same.

 

Bashing Hearts in particular for having an overpriced shirt is just yet another low-effort trolling attempt because some people seem to have nothing better to do than criticise every single thing the club does.   Also, the URL you posted was clearly the result of a Google search, for something along the line of Umbro Blue and Black shirt, mainly because the actual URL of the item is https://www.mandmdirect.com/01/details/UM2074/Umbro-Mens-Capital-Stripe-Short-Sleeve-Match-Jersey-Dazzling-Blue-Black, and your URL was full of redirects and campaign data which makes me suspect you just Googled it yourself looking for bites.

You are miles off the mark with this mate, as I said I was SENT it by my Hibs mate so calm yourself down! I'm not trolling anybody, was coming more from the angle of Umbro taking the p**s as it doesn't look to me like too much thought has went into the actual design of it given they pretty much already sell it on the cheap!

 

Impressed with your no nonsense approach to analysing the URL and forming a somewhat bizarre conclusion!

 

Have a nice weekend FFS!

Arsenal are charging £100 for their home top. Bloody obscene.  

No wonder the cheap fake options are taking a trick.

First time I saw it I had the same thought but It's not the same at all. 

 

Obviously a plain blue and black striped kit can only be so creative? But ours is completely bespoke. We have sublimated graphic detailing of Tynecastle  within the black stripes. 

 

Oh and for what it's worth the sleeves have a totally different trim too.

Club store said the new home and away strips will be in just before the end of the month but they haven't been given an exact date👍

Could do with them by then as we'll be starting friendlies this month and would be unusual not to have the new kit for them.

Do they not usually wear the previous seasons strip for the pre season friendlies?

I know you're joking, but there is actually a UEFA regulation about stripes on the back of shirts::

"8.04 - At least one of the colours used to create a hooped, banded, striped or checked shirt on the front must be the dominant colour on the back of the shirt if the same pattern (e.g. stripes) is not used on the back."

 

Some shirts go ahead and do it anyway, but then it needs a "blank square" left for the number zone, and it looks shite on unprinted shirts!

 

Inter don't seem to have any problem.

Yeah, because they used the same pattern on the back, and they use a third colour for the lettering, as it says in the rule :lol:

So there was nothing stopping us from doing the same

I'd rather we went to black socks for the home permanently

 

The 2014-15 kit was stunning, and for me if it was the kit the club wore when players enlisted in 1914, if it's that iconic, it should be our standard home colours. Maroon shirt, white shorts, black socks.

Yeah I would love to have white shorts and black socks all the time - it was stunning! I quite liked when we wore all maroon too. Not so keen on white socks and shorts.

It's slightly embarrassingly similar, but can clearly see there's a lot more detail in ours - like the floodlight trusses and the gold bits. Definitely not as embarrassing as them having Gorgie Road on their home top.

That's for the "Pro" version I.e. Identical to what the players wear. Usually they're more fitted, are made of tougher material and the badges and stuff aren't sewn on, they're actually in the material or are special heat transferred prints that don't come off. 

 

It's optional. They still sell their normal replicas at normal prices.
