The 2017-2018 Ross County F.C. Home Kit

My apologies for being a bit tardy with this post, it was my understanding that the reveal was going to be yesterday and when it wasn’t I was put in a little bit of a spot- on the road last night and again this morning.  But I’m back now, so let’s take a look!

As I mentioned about a month ago I was able to get some inside info on the new kit when I was on holiday, but under the condition that I keep most of the details to myself.  The top is a combination of two of the three options given to supporters during the social media poll set up by the club.  At first glance you can see that the main design of the top is from choice “C,” which received just over 50% of the votes in the poll.  However, there was also a lot of support for the “B” option and people particularly liked the sublimated stag’s head that was placed behind the club crest, so that design element was taken from the “B” option and put onto the back of the new top.

I still think there’s a bit too much going on with the striping as you can see in the full length shot above (do your best to ignore what appear captain Andrew Davies’ questionable footwear choice) but I like the top/full kit.  I guess the single red stripe down the side of the shorts kinda mirrors the single red stripe on the upper chest, sort of.  And I get that the sock cuff matches the sleeve and torso stripes, but the shorts seem like they are not really from the same kit.  Although if they had the same striping as the shirt and socks that would just be too much.

Anyway…

I’ll definitely be getting the top…but it’s still “busier” that it needs to be.

    So the sublimated stags head is on the back? Cover most of the backside, with the number in the middle? Not sure about the full kit (same general issue as you with the shorts), but I really like the shirt. Well done.

    What everyone else said. Overly busy shirt, and I’m “what” on the shorts – can’t help but wonder if just solid shorts (no stripe, no trim) might not have been better. Still one for the ‘win’ column, despite all that.

      White shorts would have solved everything.
