150 years in the making

The 2014 heritage strip pays homage to the guernsey Carlton’s players wore with distinction from 1927 – 1997. It will be worn three times in Season 2014; Rd 7 against Collingwood, Rd 13 against Hawthorn and Rd 23 against Essendon. While the design represents the past, it also delivers the most innovative technological advancements in AFL history for an on-field product.

The guernsey is constructed from super-durable recycled polyester featuring Nike Dri-FIT technology, which draws moisture away from the body to help keep players cool and dry. The remodeled shape hugs the body drawing forward and down, to increase freedom of movement in a bespoke fit for each individual player. It’s also made right here in Australia.
