Comoros take to the African Cup of Nations with a whole new set of kits. Of course, being The Kitsman, we had to review them.
Not often will I disapprove of a gold and green combination, and this is no exception. A great start:

What Macron had to say on the design:
“The brand-new Home jersey features a V-neck collar with gold trim at the front. The torso is in green, with the shoulders and sleeves in a darker shade of the same colour. The sleeve trims feature the remaining colours of the Comoros national flag: yellow, white, red and blue. The colours of the flag are also used for the back of the neck and the lower left section of the front of the jersey, where a tone-on-tone graphic depicts the flag’s half moon and four stars. The sides of the shirt feature a graphic inspired by Chiromani, the traditional Comorian fabric which is an integral part of the country’s national identity.”
“The Macron Hero is embroidered on the right side of the chest in white, while the Comorian Football Association logo sits on the left. The words “Wassi Wa Komori Damu Ndzima” – part of the Comorian national anthem – are printed inside the collar. Green shorts complement the shirts, featuring a white drawstring and lower trim with four stripes in the colours of the Comorian flag. These colours are also used for the trim at the top of the socks, in dark green.”
I prefer this to the home. It looks very slick and smart. A very versatile shirt.

“The Away jersey is white in colour, with a V-neck collar featuring trim in dark green and gold. The jersey reflects the design and features of the Home kit, with the sides, shoulders and sleeves all adorned with the Chiromani-inspired graphic. The colours of the national flag are present on the sleeve trim and at the bottom of the jerseys. As with the Home shirts, the phrase taken from the national anthem is printed inside the collar in green, while the flag’s half-moon and four stars design is included as a tone-on-tone graphic on the front.”
This could be a very, very popular choice. It rounds off a wonderful selection of shirts that will get a lot of interest from us kit-lovers. The hardest decision is whether or not it pips the away shirt as the best of the three.

The Macron explanation of the shirt explains, “The third shirt is navy blue with gold detailing (V-neck collar trim, printed wording inside the collar, upper sock trim). A lighter shade of blue is used for the shoulders and sleeves, and the Chiromani design is present only on the sides of the shirt in this case. There is a continuation of the navy-blue theme for the shorts and socks, both of which are finished off with detailing in the colours of the Comoros national flag.”
A cracking selection of shirts. But, did we get the ratings right? Probably not. Let us know…
