The FFR have revealed their brand new 2018/19 home shirt, which is the first new jersey for Les Bleus since the much discussed kit deal with French brand Le Coq Sportif came into effect following France’s end of season tour to New Zealand. 

The new shirt keeps things broadly classic, with a old-school royal blue jersey complimented by a old-school fold-over white collar with deep placket.


France haven’t worn LCS since the 1980s, and there’s a definite sense of the retro about this new kit – the classic white shorts and red socks have returned to compliment the blue shirt, and the brand are very keen to emphasise the fact that it is both designed and made in France.

The one flourish of unconventionality can be found on the left sleeve, which is entirely given over to a trilcolore – echoing the presence of the red, white and blue on the Le Coq Sportif badge.

Keep an eye on Rugby Shirt Watch for our full review of this and the other new Le Coq Sportif France shirts soon.

  1. Sacred bleu!! What is this monstrosity? As an avid fan of les Bleus and their kits, I am left puzzled…

  2. I’d keep only the retro collar or only the tricolore in the sleeve. Not both. Both is too much.

  3. Get rid of the sleeve (no offence to the trilcolore) and shorten the placket, you’d then have a beautiful jersey

  4. Looks great, why can’t under armour incorporate the urdd into the Wales jerseys like the tricolore here, very nice, can’t wait to see the full kit

  5. tricoleur on both sleeves surely? i have a thing about symmetry so this is intensely annoying. Apart from that, not bad. I like collars on rugby shirts. Crew and v necks always seem more like football kits.
