Partick Thistle FC and Greaves Sports unveiled Scottish football’s first ever camouflage kit – also believed to be the first camouflage strip in world football which features pink.

Official retailer Greaves Sports, kit manufacturer Puma and designers Genesis combined to come up with the concept with the pink element retained on the back of the success – on and off the park – of last year’s change top. 

While it received widespread praise from media and public as well as becoming the club’s fastest ever selling kit, Thistle won five times out of six while wearing the 2008/09 pink and grey hooped top.

Sandy Greaves, managing director of Greaves Sports, said: “We were blown away by the reaction to last season’s away strip which was Partick Thistle’s best ever in terms of sales and exposure. We promised to create a stir year-on-year so were then faced with the challenge of coming up with something which would generate as much interest.

“We retained the pink element due to the popularity of last year’s pink and grey kit and we hope it proves a lucky charm for Ian McCall and his players once again.”

The strip will be available on general sale later this month and details of when the players will play in the camouflage kit have yet to be confirmed.

Thistle manager Ian McCall said: “Last season’s away strip was certainly an eye-catcher and this term’s is no different. The amazing thing is the wide age range of people who are buying into this – even from within my squad.”

Allan Cowan, chairman of Partick Thistle, said: “We are delighted to unveil the new away strip for the coming season in the latest chapter of our successful relationship with retail partner Greaves Sports.”

I\'m sorry but that kit is foul with a capital F. :-x :-x :-x

I suppose all the Partick Chav Boys will snap it up like a half-empty bottle of Diamond White. It\'ll go well with a Carbrini zip hoodie and adidas 3-stripe trakkie bottoms.

Initiative? Who was using their initiative when they decided they\'d make a kit that you can\'t see your own players in? Unless you\'re going to tell me that Partick are so fantastic they know where everyone will be and can use it to beat the offside trap... now that would be genius!

Unbelievablely bad.
I don\'t like to slate otherteams kits as I know as a fan of my club, that I always look forward to a new kit so much.
This is awful, not even funny and almost an insult to Professional Football, regardless of what league or division.
Puma have been around for years and know better.
Partick should sue them.

On the one side: I love the boldness and originality of it.

On the other: This is WAY too MUCH. Right up there with that classic Arsenal\'s V-Pattern Banana Mix of the 90s, Hull City\'s Hair Metal Tiger Nightmare, and anything worn by Jorge Campos...

Partick have beaten Newcastle Away as the worst shirt ever this season. I normally
like most Puma shirts but this is utter s***e. Who in the right mind gave the approval for this shirt i feel sorry for the fans.

I hope someone got fired for this. It is the worst idea for a shirt I have ever seen. Who would wear this?! I only ask because I think even Patrick supporters would think twice about it... What is with the pink as well?! If it is supposed to be camo, where would they be if the landscape was that colour?! WORST KIT ALL SEASON!

Say what you like about this kit, but it will definitely go straight onto those lists of \"All Time Worst Football Kits,\" along with Coventry\'s brown kit, Hull\'s tiger stripe kit, Arsenal\'s yellow and black kit etc etc.

Let\'s face it, those lists are great, and there hasn\'t been a new addition for many seasons, so fair play to Partick - I bet this will sell all over the world to people who just want a completely different shirt and a piece of future football memorabilia.

The players will still probably feel pretty stupid wearing it though.

Very brave concept which is to be applauded. PUMA especially have had some piss poor designs based on 2 templates both of which are dire this season. However as many people have been slating NIke Adidas and Puma for crap ordinary and dull templates with no design features, this shows that some one at Puma can actually think outside the box. Its a bit random but actually looks pretty good after the initial shock..I like it...i think !

This coming from a Newcastle United fan, you support the laughing stock of British football. I would rather be seen it that than anything that had a Newcastle badge on it. The next Leeds United anyone! :L

Sorry pal, maybe support Sunderland? I hear they are in the premier league. I\'m glad that Newcastle aren\'t in the Premier League anymore, at least the are some respectable clubs in the league.

for the newcastle fan up there yu cant say anything fuk sake :shock: only 3 people wanted the newcastle away top :D :D a bet yoo there will be more thn 3 wanting this thistle top ya fanny :lol: mon the jagss !!!!!!
Guest

right, well as a thistle fan I\'m dead chuffed with it. Cos here, once again, its got hundreds of people talking about the club and recognising its (insert adjective here) strip. It was the same last year with the pink top- which got thistle coverage across britain and in europe and ended up being Greaves fastest selling strip ever.

its good logic, well done to the thistle board.

It worth remembering that one of Firhill\'s favourite chants is \'We\'ve got the worst strip in Europe, we\'ve the worst strip in EUUUUUROPE, we\'ve got the worst strip in Europe!\'

I swear that every year we go to who ever is making our shirts and say \'OK we already have fairly hideous home strip that our supporters are bizarrely proud of so can you come up with something more ridiculous on the away front?\'

This year they fulfilled their brief in style.

ANOTHER FAMOUS FIRHILL SONG IS
We\'ve followed the Thistle for many a day,
And seen all the matches at home and away,
And when the games over and thistle have won,
We\'re off to the tavern to join in the fun,
And it\'s Partick Thistle,Partick Thistle FC,
By far the greatest team the world has ever seen

Looks like Partick Thistle are trying to broaden their appeal by cashing-in on the 'pink pound'

Definitely one to look out for in dark-rooms up and down the land. Basically my [censored]dar says it's got lots of [censored]-appeal, especially for big beefy bear types.
