Everyone said the same stuff about the home top when it was leaked, then they loved it. I imagine this will be much the same.
A goalie kit, home kit and a training top don’t have epaulettes on! Almost everything this season looks the same. The black kit looks like a copy of last season’s white kit!!I’ve not got a dog in this fight but those jumpers do have designs on the shoulders.
respect? to whom? a shirt? the designer? the manufacturer who lets face it deserves a hell of a lot of stick after the last year?Nah, don’t wait , just pile in with horrible comments about what might be Rangers shirt. If they don’t like it maybe ease up a bit and show some respect?
I think, from my point of view, it looks really really tacky and cheap. It also looks like the same template as last seasons away kits. The gold (beige) is horrendous. That and the red training top looks like something you would see dancers wear at a Chinese New Year celebration. IMHO they’re horrible. But it’s subjective, I guess.I'm not really sure what actually makes a good or bad football top?
I can see why totally off the wall designs and colours would be seen as horrible but most of the time our kit manufacturers play it pretty safe.
The Castore jerseys seem like pretty standard football tops. Side panels, shoulder panels, collars, cuffs it's all standard across manufacturers.
Not really sure what makes a jersey horrendous. Unless boring is horrendous or vile or whatever else gets thrown around.
I definitely see people's objection to the "gold" as its a bit of a bold choice from a Rangers perspective. Also the sponsor is always going to be an issue. Other than these the Castore jerseys have just seemed like pretty standard football tops.
What's causing the extreme negative reactions?
Last years Retro top was amazing. I wish we had worn it more often. Maybe even as a home top for this year. I get its not really possible due to lack of sponsor,but it remains my fave from the Castore era so far.I wonder if its just the ego of designers. People being paid to design these probably want to put their own stamp on it rather than being told "copy this".
Obviously there would be branding issues with copying any of our Adidas stuff with 3 stripes. I wouldn't be surprised if Nike held some kind of rights to their own designs and those couldn't be copied too closely.
Always thought it was weird that we never once saw a copy of the orange and navy vertical stripes from the Adidas days. Yet the tims have had that yellow and black monstrosity a load of times.
The home jersey is trying to be more like a classic design but with sponsors and stuff that never really works.
The away is just a standard football jersey and I expect the same will be true with the 3rd (maybe going adventurous with the colour).
Was last seasons "retro" kit even that popular?
Yeah, they should have gone 100% with homage to classic favourites across the 3 kits. It's too bad and too late now.
For the 4th jersey I would have wanted something like the Danish all red euro effort. Have the crest, sponsor, collar etc just a very slightly different tone of blue to the main blue of the jersey so it's just a plain blue top with everything else being subtle. I think we didn't even have a crest on the jerseys until the 70s?
F*ck it. They are just football tops so whatever.

The top in that picture doesn't look black at all, I don't know why people are so adamant. I took a screenshot and put the saturation right up and it comes up as blue as blue can be. I still don't believe it's our 3rd strip.
There was a video interview with Wilson and Bisgrove.
A question was asked about the anniversary kits and the kits for 2022/23, they said jokingly that they both had differing views on what a Rangers kit should be like. With Wilson saying he’s more of a traditionalist when it comes to kits.
Kit discussion starts 27mins 27secs in.
You've posted a video to show that Wilson doesn't like the kits and the only thing he says about these kits are 'the kits for next season look excellent' and then that both training and match day 'kits for next season are outstanding'. He says he's a traditionalist and always looking to change things but he's full of praise for the kits.
I posted the video that the OP was looking for.
Not sure where you’re getting the idea that it was posted it to show Wilson doesn’t like the kits.
All the kits are rank rotten.
Not sure if the link will work but can’t post pics.
I remember the home top was actually called a holocaust I had to take a minute and read the post again I couldn't believe a poster got that triggered about a football top design that he used language like that.I think “absolutely disgusting” and “red top is a Chinese new year outfit” are the current leaders for this years Castore offerings.
Time yet though.
