    Umbro are consistently the best kit makers, particularly for smaller clubs.
    Maybe if this was 1979 and you were going every other week to Tynecastle to watch lower league fitba

    I think adidas are more of a Hibs brand myself, especially the late 80s and of course the 1991 League Cup winning team's kit (home and away)

    Now that was a great kit for a capital city club IMHO

    The McGinn money obviously will help subsidise the loss from the missing sponsorship but it just means itís filling that hole rather than being put to use as the bonus income it was supposed to be.
    Aren't sponsorships done by year? Assuming we do find one does it matter if we go a few weeks without a sponsor?

    Ive seen them, piss poor efforts.
    Its a rip off of an old Swansea Joma kit. Totally all white but with two black stripes down the front and a black bar to fit in the sponsor. Think Real Madrid but with a hugh black H on the front.

    The away is a garish pinky purple number... honking.


    H for honking!!

    Sponsorships are done by season and reproduction on replicas is part of the deal. That's why we have had a delay on replica kit and why each passing day it devalues the cost of any potential sponsorship. It does matter as it impacts the club and how we're looked at, along with our transfer budget and for our accounts. Without one, or a cut price deal, we'll fall further behind Hearts and Aberdeen revenue wise.

    Why wouldnít there be a sponsor in place towards the end of last season if Marathon was finished? Itís looking extremely poor commercially with ore-season a couple of weeks away. There must be some kind of contingency plan if the preferred sponsor pulls out or whatever?

    Doesn't sound like something that Hibs would allow to happen. I'm confident of a kit launch very soon

    This slight delay won't have a negative impact commercially or on shirt sales this season. That's my positive speculation to counteract the negative stuff.

    Real Sociedad home kit for next season. Wonder if our away shirt will have that design.

    A striped top would be a very nice change, Iíve wanted one for ages. Just no blue and white!

    A year of traditional and a year of random would good. Green shirt white sleeves every other year with stripes, hoops, squares, half and half in the alternate years!

    Why can't Macron just design something with a normal collar? Stick a round neck on that and it's average. Have a stupid V cut out and a weird foldy over looking bit and it becomes utterly bogging.

    It is infuriating. A simple white v neck and last years would have been an absolute classic (it was actually mocked up on here). Even a button would have improved it a fair bit.

    I really don't like Macron tops in general. In saying that i liked our first one with them. Thought last seasons was a monstrosity. Too much going on on one top. Hoping the new one is nice but not holding out much hope. Like others have said addidas would be brilliant.

    The first home top we had with Macron was one of the best we've had, IMHO. It was a cracking strip.

    I've not really been a fan of the home strips Macron have produced so far, I felt this seasons and last seasons were almost identical with a few sort of details attached on this year to distinguish it from the year befores. I liked the design of the away tops though.

    Agreed. Loved both strips that year to be honest.

    I didnít like it, far too much going on. Loved the diamonds last season though, stunning

    If we went with Adidas we could do worse than go with an effort like this Ö. I never thought their stripes looked right on our white sleeves.

    Can you give us some ideas of what we could do that would be worse than that, please, as I'm struggling?

    Keep hearing that adidas or umbro would be much better.....yet every example is rank rotten. If we dont like the collars blame Hibs.

    GLORY GLORY & MATTY F.

    It wasn't the actual design I was talking about, I don't like it either, it was just a pic to illustrate a green top with 3 stripes

    A green and white version of adidas's Arsenal kit would be brilliant. Thing of beauty that kit.

    They'd glue on a Hibs badge and want £50 a pop for it.
