I’m sorry but looks like a cheap old style football shirt made from recycled polyester says it all. 
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Doesn't really break the recent years' template, but steers clear of committing any real crimes. I think the collar is an improvement, though I don't know how I feel about a totally round collar, I think I would have preferred a simple V like the USA shirt (but not the Samoa or Manu Samoa shirts), though I kind of like the simplicity and the complement. I guess I'm conflicted.
Looks better in the touched-up photos than in the video, which shows the fabric close-up.

Surely they've given Jon a size too big for the photo shoot? His muscles should be busting out of that 💪🏻. The announcement says the shirt is "designed to hug and fit to the contours of the player’s body".
Time will tell whether those stitches hold up - there's a bit of panelling going on.

--

Tempting to say "they haven't managed to attract any significant new shirt sponsors", apart from the ladies shirt - but who knows how long the previous deals lasted?
The combo of fossil fuels and monarchic feathers are off-putting for me, personally, much as I appreciate the sponsor's input.

Of interest - Owens Group, a very local company facing a crisis last year, is now the lead sponsor for one of Swansea City's away shirts, looking lush in gold... much bigger exposure for the company. Owens is still in the same spot on our shirt, though.

I'm not seeing ZipWorld, which is becoming increasingly high-profile, on there. Previously on the back and was the team's pre-season partner last year. I hope they're still supporting the side in other ways.

As someone has previously said, none of the promos in the website's above-the-fold carousel are clickable. Not that Castore has yet got the ecommerce site up-and-running anyway. Strange, 24-hour gap?

I’m afraid I want a proper collar.  The macron one has a collar. And in cotton.  Otherwise I’ll hold on to macron

"To celebrate 150 years since Llanelli RFC was established, Castore have been working closely with Scarlets to deliver a special anniversary edition jersey that will be worn during the 2022-23 URC and European season".


After reading that,quoted at the start of the thread,got to say a bit of a let-down seeing the new kit on Ken the gut and Gatsby the glove puppet.Still,at least it's scarlet.

Good point. You have to assume that will be one of two other kits.
