The latest tops have been heralded as featuring a “unique cutting edge fabric” by the SRU, having been designed by Macron to “combine durability with lightness”.

In terms of look, the home strip is predominately navy blue with a white collar and thin stripe at the bottom. There are also thicker white and purple hoops on the sleeve. The tops will be complemented by navy shorts.

The away top features a purple panel on a mainly white strip, while the Scotland 7s top has thin purple hoops on a navy background.

Dominic McKay, Scottish Rugby’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “Once again Macron have produced striking new designs for the Scotland and Scotland 7s match kits for the forthcoming season. We look forward to watching all of our representative teams wearing the kits during 2017/18 and hope that they can kick on from their collective successes in 2016/17.”

“I am sure that the designs will again prove to be popular with our fans who have been supporting Scottish Rugby in recent years by buying the replica tops in record numbers.”

The kits can be pre-ordered now. General sale begins on Friday.
