The acid test to me is whether I would choose it as a kit to buy and wear.

Imagine the kits If they were all the same price and quality, without all the sponsor names and logos (or with your club name), but with a generic shape rather than a logo where the logo is more integral to the design (eg Movistar): Maybe some Katherine Hamnett style phrase in the case of Ag2R Citroen.
If all of the kits were in your LBS/preferred internet dealer and at whatever price point in the market you normally shop at, which would you consider? (assume that they have your size and all kits are available for both genders)
I'm assuming none of us needs to buy more than 3 different jerseys a year.

I think I'll have a Kern, a Parkhotel Valkenberg and a Cofidis.

Maglia Rosa, Rainbow jersey, EF Giro 2020 edition.

Nah, I think I'm on the Cofidis bandwagon too, even if it's a very weird way they have presented it. Good on them to see some change after many years of the same. Then probably Movistar and Ineos for the others.

For me... Movistar, AG2R and one of those women's... I have lost track which one is now allowed and which isn't.
 
But in avocado?

Seems to be a few tops with white shoulders this year.
Intermarché seems to be the opposite, and it looks terrible (sorry, I will issue an internal reprimand to myself for complaining).

Also, Cofidis have black shorts. It looks really, really good, I think.

A very clean design and with white shoulders and black shorts he even looks like he's got muscular upper arms. :grinning:

The Israel and Cofidis ones both look pretty good. The former blends the retro elements well with the team/country colours, the latter is definitely helped by the low number of sponsors as it wouldn't work as a clean, minimalistic design otherwise. Otoh Intermarché has done the incredible by somehow being worse than possible...

LIke the black Cofidis shorts. And @Devil's Elbow is right--the small number of sponsors is necessary with that minimalist design.

As for InterMarche--their entire colling card, kit wise, was the fluorescent yellow. Toning it down just doesn't work. Now it is garden-variety ugly instead of oh--look at that--ugly.
 
Intermarché looks like a kit from a 2009 continental french team.

Or from something I could buy in my local Intermarché if their white-label clothing brand made cycling jerseys to sale for 10€. I can't conceive someone buying that jersey on purpose.

And to think I am a bit let down to watch Alpecin ride again in the new year in that same old boring and bland design. Even that is more appealing than this.
