    A bit disappointing IMO.

    I think that the Altanta 96 kit was the best recently.

    Have you seen the pic of Sir Chris in the kit. More to the point, his thighs 😯

    What is with all the black – or is that just my computer ??

    Good color and all that, especially on the Kiwi team and the All Blacks.

    Forget the kit, look at the Ennis.

    Some reaction on Twitter said the designs were “too blue” and looked like they were for a Scottish rather than a GB team.

    One, @donaldjdonald, said: “Turquoise, white and blue is the new red, white and blue apparently. Did someone forget to order the red dye for the Team GB Olympic kit?”

    Asked about the criticism, McCartney told the BBC: “I wanted to start with the Union Flag, but I’m really aware the red, white and blue are in other people’s flags and it’s qute confusing when you are watching… is that America, is that France?

    “I wanted to make it slightly more delicate and have more texture.

    “It’s very recognisable still, I’ve represented all the parts of GB. There’s a lot of red in there, but in a non-traditional way.”

    Not convinced, Stella. I think it looks good as a design, just not very GB and I really think that the Union Jack is a great bit of design in itself. I think that the GB cycling kit looks brilliant and it’s never confused for US or French kit.

    Enough meat for an entire Harvester me thinks.

    Not enough red in the design.

    And forget CH’s thighs. I’m more interested in Jess Eniss’es’s.

    That is all.

    EDIT: “There’s a lot of red in there, but in a non-traditional way” … ah, I see, turquoise is the less traditional version of red. I can see how they’re easily confused. idiot.

    It’s all a bit wrong really. Looks like the corporate theme for a really dull company, and doesn’t say ‘GB’ to me at all- Scotland maybe.

    I see what she’s saying about wanting to do something different with recognisable elements like the Union Jack etc. but it hasn’t come off- the baby’s gone out with the bathwater.

    Looks like the kit’s already been through the washing machine 50 times, but they forgot to use Daz ColourFast.

    And WTF!!!?

    Has she taken up Judo?

    Absolutely hideous, but given the Lisa Simpson logo, I guess it was only to be expected.
    WTF is the X-factor thing on Iduwo’s top?

    This is what happens when you mix arty farty fashion designers with Germans!

    Individually, I quite like the designs. Together, in the photo above, they look gash and insconsistent.

    And not using red in the union flag? WHY? That’s the ID, it’s the ‘brand’ of the UK. How was using turquoise allowed to get past an idea???

    I’d put good money on Adidas not making a lot of the kit – It’s quite common for the current kit manufacturers for a given sport to make the kit but to put the Adidas (or whatever) branding on it.

    the BMX kit…how to make an athlete look very unathletic. Brilliant.

    It’s not Shanaze making it look unathletic, put it that way. Proper animal.

    This really annoys me.

    Designers? I’ve shit ’em.

    IT’S THE MOST ICONIC FLAG IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD, IT’S RED AND WHITE AND BLUE AND IT ALWAYS LOOKS GREAT BUT YOU STUPID MONKEYS HAVE SAT IN YOUR STUPID OFFICE AND MANAGED TO COCK IT UP.

    HELEN BLOODY KELLER COULD HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB YOU TOSSPOT DIMWITS.

    So, overall, I’m not that keen.

    Is it just me who is wondering if they are going to go to hell by suggesting that some of the legs in that top photo are somewhat more toned than others?

    Couple of things spring to mind regarding the colour choice
    1: (like her dad) No taste?
    2 : Colour blind?
    3: Printer was running out of coloured ink?

    How much has it all cost ?

    I like it. Especially with Ennis in it.

    What is it with heptathlete shapely figures? Oh my.

    Designed by Stella McCartney.
    Keeping up the family tradition of being over-rated and crap but getting paid lots for it.

    Ennis? Shapely?

    She has the figure of a little girl; ‘ave a word!

    Oh, dear god

    You know the other day, when it appeared that “dozy bint” was inappropriate terminology, …

    I appear to be the only person in Britain that thinks they should have dumped the Union flag element of the design altogether. Much prefer something like the national cycling jerseys that feature the colours but don’t make any further reference to the flag.

    Oh and AndyP I may have to leave the country for my comment but you are surely going to hell for yours 🙂

    Massively disappointing is an understatement. Hope McCartney wasn’t paid for that crap design. Can’t even get the Union flag right – epic fail.

    At least Chris’s bikes the right colour.

    Perfectly adequate but a bit disappointing and could easily be much better. Pretty much sums up the whole thing, let alone the GB kit.

Yeah, but it was Adidas and our Stella that did the design bit. Can’t blame the manufacturers for that.

    I think if the turquoise bit was just changed to red it would all look rather good.

    Ha – Wiggo posted “Oh Dear, The Olympic kit!!” on Twitter which is about the first ‘personal’ comment he’s made in ages and it’s now disappeared. I wonder who pressured him.

    “it’s important we’re all singing from the same hymn sheet”, etch no doubt.
