Its very like the Liverpool 'Candy' jersey of similar era so I can see why some fans might like it :p I liked the half and half black and white Blackburn style jersey I think the 93-94 season but I dont think it was too popular at the time. You cant really go too wrong with the plain all white with the black trim or pinstripe and the all black away kit. Not retro enough yet and maybe it was the day that was in it but the most striking Dundalk kit imo was the all white 2002 cup final strip. I did like the all red one Mike mentions. If there is to be a new kit launched I hope CX+ dont get too fussy with the design, Im still not sure about the current home jersey with the stripes!

I hated that cup final shirt! Stupid random stripes, three below and one above the sponsor. Looked crap! It’s why i hate both of this years shirts too.

Plain colours with subtle trims, or symmetrical accents.

Jim Murphy’s book has graphics of all our historical shirts. Most of the 70s and 80s ones were far better than the 90s and 00s. The white umbro Euro special is my favourite

Agreed - it was a terrible shirt. As was the majority of the O'Neills efforts.

Not so much a retro jersey by Bohs per se but an interesting and imaginative way to draw some curiosity to the club from outside of Irish sporting circles. The Shed lads and Bohs fans can join together singing Three Little Birds when Bohs visit Oriel Park next season!

I’ll be the pedant and point out they can’t wear that in Oriel!

Laughed my ass off when I saw it, but it could sell loads. The design is swing and a miss, though. Putting a red and black crest on top of the colour stripes is a dumb move. Also the sponsor takes away from it. Should have moved it to the back.

This will make little material difference here but I was wondering about the image rights (must have read something about the issue ages ago) and this is top of the search -

Im sure O'Neills would be well on the ball!!.....

The sponsor does looks like a stencil slipped during printing.

I honestly thought this was a t shirt when I saw it first. Are they honestly going to go with that? Would they not have image rights issues.

Looks a top t-shirt/polo. Official jersey. Not for me.
