Team Scotland's uniform for the commonwealth games!

  Flak999 14:49 08 Jul 2014

Is this the most hidious collection of garments ever created as a team uniform for a sporting occasion?

If this is what passes for sartorial elegance in Scotland now, I think they deserve their independence. If only to distance the rest of the country from their truly appalling taste in clothing!

They may be mistaken for the Maoris in team NZ. I hope they defy tradition and wear undergarments - if the opening ceremony is on a windy day, the result could be gruesome!

I expect to see the hordes of Scottish sporting fanatics attending 'The Games' sway more towards more traditional attire.

Yes it's bad but it's still light years better than that god awful gold foil lined ensemble foisted on the UK Olympic team by Stella McCartney.

I wonder how many back street enterprise business's are knocking a few thousands of those designer wear garments off at this very moment, so as to boost their economy and pride of the nation?.

I am, and not for the first time, in total agreement - the clothes are hideous, and totally lacking in style. I'm at one with the person who commented (about the blue)

"I can't stop looking at this. It's a colour which clashes with itself"

What were the designers thinking of?

Dreadful. Look like Pedro and his Music of the Mountains".

I reckon that most of that gear will soon turn up in some of the 'up-market' Charity Shops which I frequently frequent.[Glasgow southside]

I think this is the athletes' uniform for the opening parade.

They may well wear something more traditional on the track!

Not noted for 'colour sense' by my better half, even I can see it is dire, so it must be bad. Beats the 70's style easily and they were bad.
