All black kit launched for 2014/15

Edinburgh Rugby today made a bold statement with the launch of their 2014/15 all black home shirt.

The club have once again worked closely with kit supplier Macron to develop unique and custom-made products, with distinctive designs and the technical capabilities to support the performance of the players.

The home jersey is characterised by the classic colors of the club, with the bold, matt black base, complemented by a red polo collar.

The shirt will be teamed with black shorts and incorporates micromesh panels to improve the breathability of the garments, while a 'bodyfit' profile supports maximum performance of the wearer.

For the first time, the club's striking change jersey features black, red and white horizontal hoops and will also have a red polo collar.

Both kits feature the prominent chest logo of BT Sport, the club's main sponsor, while Mitsubishi returns to the back of the neck.

Edinburgh Rugby stand-off, Greig Tonks, said: "This is the fourth season that Macron and Edinburgh Rugby have worked together on the new kits and these are definitely up there with the best yet.

Last season's strip was the most popular yet but I think these two will do even better. The kits are really striking and will look great out there on the field or worn casually.”

Replica shirts will be available to fans as a standard fit or the players' performance top.

In addition to this, Macron's range of supporters' merchandise includes jackets, hooded sweatshirts, t-shirts and polo shirts, as well as a variety of hats, scarves and accessories.

The kit will be unveiled to fans at tonight's Edinburgh Rugby Open Evening where Macron will be offering supporters who buy either a home or alternate shirt the chance to win fantastic prizes, including two hospitality places for the entire season, the chance to be a match-day mascot, and a signed Edinburg Rugby shirt.

Gianluca Pavanello, CEO of Macron, said: "We are proud to sponsor Edinburgh Rugby and to work closely with the team to continue on the road to success.

"Year after year, our designers have refined our products to make them more specific and suitable to the club while maintaining the same time the haute couture style and the high-quality standards that characterise the Macron brand.

We are confident of having created a range of products that all supporters will appreciate.”
