    People Are Really Unhappy With Scotland’s Commonwealth Games Kit

    Made in Scotland, from curtains.

    So Scotland has unveiled its parade uniform for the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony in Glasgow later this month.

    Rebecca Lee

    The kit was created by textile designer and artist Jilli Blackwood.

    According to a press release, the uniform "injects a contemporary twist to the traditional tartan outfits of past Games".

    Unfortunately the reaction to the kit has been far from favourable:

    I'm petitioning Google to expunge all images of Scotland's Commonwealth Games kit.

    Not really bothered about the Commonwealth games, but those Scotland uniforms look like something from the Eurovision Song Contest-1980.

    Inevitable independence gags.

    I'd like to apologise for Scotland's outfits for this year's Commonwealth Games. They are horrendous. http://t.co/AeZQq15cv2

    Suggestions for the uniform's real inspiration:

    Scotland's Commonwealth Games outfits: They look like they're in a fancy dress episode of a Spanish soap opera.

    That Scotland uniform for the commonwealth games is a real hum dinger. Whoever designed that has just sabotaged their own career.

    It could be worse though, spare a thought for Australia...

    Fear not Scotland fans, we aren't the only ones with dodgy Commonwealth gear. Someone tell the Aussies it's summer!
