Gladbach Says Dortmund Kit Stolen

A few people, including on this site, already noticed it before, but the debate on whether the new Borussia Dortmund Puma kit is too similar to the one produced by Kappa for Borussia Mönchengladbach last season gained steam today following an explosive tweet from the latter time.

Dortmund Kit Stolen?

Simply embedding the two jerseys next to each other, Gladbach bluntly implied that the design of Dortmund's jersey was stolen from their old one.

We think that there's no denying that a certain similarity exists between the two designs, both in the hooped front and also a bit on the collar. Anyway, there are also a number of differences which ultimately show although that Puma (at most) was inspired by Kappa's work it's definitely not an exact copy.

Another design which might have inspired Puma's new Dortmund kit would be Nike's Pre-match tops for Euro 2016...
