    So there's votes in now for every kit bar one, and one kit has been both nominated for a reprieve and as worst kit. Both categories have outright leaders at the moment, so it's taking shape - but votes taken all today to finalise the lat 16.

    Just under two hours to go here - and no ties in either category at the moment!

    Worst ever – 83-85 pinstripe, 85 Kerry (goddlemighty! Seeing that, 2012’s hoopy socks look like Hugo Boss!)

    Worth another look – 96-98, 00-01, 12-13.
    Hello, hello? What's going on? What's all this shouting, we'll have no trouble here!

    OK, we have a result.

    Topping the reprieve request with five votes is the 2000-01 kit -



    We then have a tie for the second spot between the 94/95 and the 98/99 kit. This now is awkward because I'd noted at the start that the tie-break was to remove my vote (as an effective de-casting vote) - but I voted for both kits.

    So feck it, an executive decision is needed, and the best reason for keeping a kit throughout the tournament so far was for the 94/95 kit -



    So Father Dougal wins it for the 94/95 kit, and 98/00 is narrowly eliminated.

    The worst vote, though, is much clearer. The Kerry kit picked up 3 votes, but clear in the lead, and your worst Ireland kit of the past 45 years, is -



    So we have 16 left. I'll start the knock-outs on Monday morning on the same basis as before. The draw will be an open draw, except that reprieved kits can't meet the kits that just knocked them out. The last 16 will run next week, and we may get the competition concluded the week after. So another two weeks to go to find Ireland's best home kit of all time!

    Funnily enough, the worst one is the only shirt I actually own! I won it in a competition to be fair. The shirt itself is grand, I think the socks swing it in terms of being a bad kit overall.

    In fairness those hooped socks would kill the coolest jersey of all time.

    OK - let's get back down to business here.

    No more reprieves - once a kit is gone, it's gone. Those kits that complain about a tough draw - well, the best kit won't be losing to any other one by definition.

    First up is a doozy I think - it's two of our World Cup kits going head-to-head. Italia 90 v Japan/Korea 2002.





    Next bout online this evening.

    Italia 90, the fact it still looks pretty modern means it was just a damn good design in the first place.
