The new Commonwealth Games uniforms released yesterday have already divided opinion, with many commentators labelling them ugly.

The uniforms will be worn by Australian athletes next month at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The uniforms feature the iconic clashing shades of green and gold on itchy-looking jumpers and multi-pannelled spray jackets.

The oversized coat of arms on the uniforms have also been criticised as looking like iron-on transfers from Spotlight.

According to a report by The Age, the uniforms were designed and manufactured by Australian Defence Apparel, which also supplies military apparel.

“This is why Olympians used to perform naked,” said Elle deputy editor Damien Woolnough.

Netballer Bianca Chatfield told ABC news that the netball team would be very excited about mixing and matching the different pieces.
