    Default New Retro Forest shirts now available!

    https://www.nottinghamforest.co.uk/n...s-now-on-sale/

    I know not whether these are better than the old ones or the same standard.

    John McGovern has one in that article, no sign of any stripes on the sleeves.

    What I don’t get is that if Adidas/NFFC released a proper “retro” shirt with the three stripes and the trefoil logo, they would sell like the proverbial hot cakes.

    Why they haven’t tumbled to that, I have no idea.

    I've always wondered that too. It's the true iconic Forest shirt! People would be falling over themselves to own one surely?

    It's crazy. It just makes the product more authentic.

    You got to wonder about the 'Adidas Originals' they keep plugging if they not willing to do this on Forest Retro stuff.

    I wonder whether it stems from a fear by Adidas of appearing to live in the past? They want to be seen as a cutting edge sports designer. I believe Citroen have a similar attitude which is why they never retro the 2CV or the DS19?

    I wouldn't think releasing an historic shirt to a relatively small group of fans would affect their global brand in any way

    I guess for one of the big multinational sports brands, nostalgic Nottingham Forest fans are pretty niche market. Anything more than a template isn't worth it/

    Some will probably think its me being a miserable sod but its being sold as a replica of the European cup final shirts..... it looks nothing like either with those distinct features omitted.

    35 pound for that is an absolute joke

    Have to agree. First thing I looked far are the distinctive Adidas trademarks and they are not there, thus it's not a retro shirt, it's a knock-off look alike.

    The actual styled shirt we all remember is a sure fire best seller. Even I would buy one!

    Maybe there's some sort of rights issue that prevents them from selling an identical replica?

    Legendary shirt for a legendary team. What heady days those were. Wish I'd been around to experience it.

    If they released that shirt again I would buy seven, one for each day of the week.

    I get people's point on authenticity, but let's be honest, if these are priced at £35 without the bells and whistles you know they'd be £70 with. Are people gonna pay that?
    A few nutters do on eBay I know but in general?
    Maybe aididas should offer a limited run? (Surprised they haven't cottoned on to this, they've reissue everything else).

    Yes, it's the smartest football shirt ever made
