Much like their combo with Millwall, Macron have teamed with Forest to produce a classic-looking home shirt. No messing.
That Garibaldi red is there in spades, with white in all the right places to break it up – a smart collar with red piping and cuffs to match, and both the Macron ‘Hero’ and that sumptuous Forest crest woven to the chest. As little extras you also get a Forest badge inside the collar, and their year of birth on the back of the neck.
Of course, how far you elevate this in the pantheon of great Forest shirts may depend on how bothered you are by gambling sponsors. Whilst Football Index aren’t your standard ‘acca cracker’ type for ‘bookie bashers’, and the logo looks fairly well, gambling company they still are. And you also have to share them with QPR as your shirt sponsor.
If that’s too much to stomach then there’s also the logo of online pharmacy UK Meds on the back, so maybe give them a nudge and see if they can help.
If you’re a junior and not permitted to having gambling in your life just yet, ironically your luck is in. The sponsor-less junior version is beautiful, really ringing bells of Forest glory days.
