Featuring faded stripes, the kit has been desgined as a homage to the club’s first Nike kits, worn from 1983 to 1986.

The kit design also takes elements from the club’s 1995-97 away strip and 2009-10 home shirt.

Lee Johnson’s side will wear the new kit for the first time when they face Hearts of Midlothian at Tynecastle on Saturday afternoon.
