The 2021/22 Premier League season is off to a good start and we are happy to have it back.
There is a certain freshness and uniqueness that accompanies the start of each new campaign and one of the ways the year will no doubt be defined is by its kits.
Also, if a certain team or player succeeds in a spectacular moment or season as a whole, you can rest assured that the jerseys in which they achieved it will be remembered for years to come.
2021/22 Premier League shirts
And now that nearly all of the new tapes have been revealed for the 2021/22 campaign, it seems natural that we need to assess how they stack up against each other in terms of design.
We have already ranked the respective Premier League home and away kits from worst to best, but now we are merging them all and adding the third highs that have already hit the shelves.
We call on our faithful medium of Tiermaker to make things as smooth as possible, by organizing the jerseys by classifying them in levels ranging from “Kitastrophe” to “Take my money”.
Obviously, it’s important to clarify that our ranking is completely subjective and based on the opinion of your humble writer, so be sure to give us your own thoughts on the kits after reading.
Oh, and keep in mind that our order is purely based on our opinion of the aesthetics of the kits as opposed to the provenance of the design – we’re not here to butcher what may or may not be culturally important. or history for some clubs.
Also, each of these kits will indeed have their lovers and power over the people behind them, as football simply wouldn’t be the same without its fashion and jersey culture.

Premier League kits ranking
But enough cleaning up and warnings, let’s get down to business as we rank every Premier League shirt for the 2021/22 season that has been released so far from worst to best:
Manchester City third, Chelsea at home, Leicester City away, Norwich City third and Watford at home
I’m sorry it sounds cruel, but these are the Premier League shirts I hate the most this season and nothing more than the City third shirt, which has been widely criticized by fans.
While, yes, Puma should be credited with trying something different, the inexplicable decision not to even include the club badge makes it look like a cheap t-shirt – and we’re still in shock, for be honest.
But he finds himself in good company as I don’t like the textures found on the Chelsea, Leicester and Watford kits at all, while the peachy red of the Norwich shirt is a serious jerk.
Premier League 2021/22: fixtures, results, odds, ball, tickets and everything you need to know
Everton third, Crystal Palace third, Newcastle United away, Leicester City third, Burnley away, Manchester United third, West Ham United away, Leicester City at home, Wolverhampton Wanderers at home and Watford at home outside
Yeah, not for me. A lot of these jerseys aren’t fashionable by any means, but they just happen to not float my boat for various reasons.
Everton and Palace’s designs, while paying homage to the past, appear anemic and messy, while the color palettes seen on Leicester and United’s alternate stripes see them flirting with the ‘kitastrophe’.
The Wolves and Burnley jerseys are marked by lack of originality, the exterior design of Newcastle is way too loaded and I cannot be convinced that the Watford strip is not a Belgian release.
Arsenal at home, Liverpool away, Leeds United at home and Brighton & Hove Albion away
These are solid jerseys, it has to be said, but they don’t deserve the hype they’ve received from many fans online in my books.
I did something of a 180 on the Liverpool strip because even though it impressed me at first, it looks more and more like a missed opportunity to reinvent their 90s inspiration over time.
Meanwhile, Arsenal’s exit looks too much like an Ajax shirt for its own good and while it’s hard to do much with a Leeds home shirt, Adidas’ latest effort leaves me just fine. cold.
Could have been better
Manchester United away, Arsenal away, Newcastle United at home, Liverpool at home, Everton away, Southampton at home, Chelsea away, Aston Villa at home and Brentford away
Now these shirts are designs that I have a certain fondness for, but I feel like they are being held back by one bad decision or another, hence the suggestion that they could have been better.
The biggest offender is most definitely the United away strip, because when you consider the magnificent 1990’s shirt it is based on, you must be wondering why the re-imagining is so middle-of-the-road.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Brentford would all have benefited from having less garish undertones of yellow and orange trim that prevent Liverpool from having one of the best home jerseys in the league.
Southampton’s home shirt is on the verge of being too crowded, Villa has knees because of its stripes, Newcastle’s exit is, again, a bit messy and I’m not a fan of the overly flared collar of ‘Everton.
Brighton & Hove Albion home, Brentford home, Manchester United home, Brentford third, Southampton away, Norwich City away, Tottenham Hotspur home, West Ham United home, Crystal Palace away, Everton home, West Ham United third and Aston Villa away
Considering the rise in the level of soccer jerseys over the past few years, it should come as no surprise that the most populous level is the one that complements the designs of the kits.
From the clean and clever simplicity of Brighton and Spurs’ exit to little twists on Palace and Everton’s lore, there’s a lot to like here even if none of the kits are real pitfalls.
Manchester City away, Norwich City home, Tottenham Hotspur away, Burnley home, Crystal Palace home, Leeds United away, Southampton third and Wolverhampton Wanderers away
We are now entering impressive territory and what better place to start than the absolute carnage of the gang outside Spurs? I feel like I shouldn’t like it, but it just gets more amazing with every watch.
Palace and Norwich have breathed new life into their home shirts with inspired design changes, while Wolves and Southampton deserve praise for really swinging for the fences with their alternate shirts.
Burnley’s stunning shoulder pattern was a huge hit with me, the texture on the Leeds away kit is pure gravy and what could anyone hate about City’s second belt shirt ?!
Take my money
Arsenal third and Manchester City at home
If you don’t like Arsenal’s third kit this season then we just can’t be friends because it earned itself a place in the top tier without thinking for a moment.
As for the City jersey, it is perhaps the best example of a jersey that you absolutely love without being 100% sure of the reasons why but I mean, come on, just look at this damn thing.
There’s something about the subtlety of the torso’s texture, paired with white bodywork, that makes it look fantastic – and that’s the perfect case for a shirt that looks even better on the court.
Which kit is your favorite?
We have undoubtedly angered a few thousand fans with our selections here, but there is arguably nothing more subjective about the beautiful game than the world of football kits.
Also, while most of us might not be fashionistas, I think we can all agree that there are sometimes soccer jerseys that we either love or hate for reasons we can’t. really articulate.
You’ve had the chance to see which shirts are eliciting these reactions from me and now it’s your turn, so be sure to give us your own take on the current Premier League crop on our social media.
