When Sunderland released their new kit for the 2017-2018 season, it was one of the most discussed kits on the website because of its remarkable thin stripes design. However, while almost everyone agreed that the front of the kit looks great, the plain back of the jersey was already criticized by kit fanatics.

In fact, last season's Sunderland jersey featured a much more usual appearance with two red and three white vertical stripes on the front and the back.
