It’s one of life’s great constants, the France shirt broadly being lovely (though Le Coq Sportif has had a go at ballsing it up in the last few years) and so it should come as no surprise that the new Les Bleus top is rather handsome indeed.
Building on the very pared down vibe of last year’s RWC shirt, the new design retains some of those elements, including the weird two-tone bit across the top of the chest, and the new red crest.
We also have a similar stub collar as last year, but the design has been given a nice 70s flourish with the addition of a broad red and white stripe that runs the length of the sleeves.
France will wear their new kit for the first time when they take on Wales in their Six Nations warm-up fixture.

Loving the cluster of bird logos on these jerseys. Turning into a bit of an aviary isn’t it!
The jersey is fine, the global kit using blue shorts & socks isn’t. at all !
