Argentina: Having given Los Pumas diagonally striped shirts after taking over the contract from adidas, Nike opted for a simpler look. The results were exceedingly pleasing, with the strip one of the best on show.
Australia: Upon its launch, this drew controversy at home, with fans unhappy with the shade of gold and the fade effect on the right sleeve. Good performances on the pitch seemed to aid its acceptance, though.
Canada: Utilising the same Under Armour template as Wales, Canada didn't have as much embellishment to their outfits. a bit plain-looking, perhaps, but the maple leaf grip tape was a nice touch.
England: Ended their long association with Nike in 2012 and signed with Canterbury, who had provided them with some good looks. This pleased traditionalists and modernists, but unfortunately the kit will be associated with the country's greatest disappointment.
England (alt): Drawn in the same group as Fiji, England lost the toss for colours and home dressing room in the opening game. The change strip was in the same style as the white but in two-tone red.
Fiji: One of four countries to take to the field in BLK gear, Fiji's kit was fairly straightforward but had a subtle 'tapa' motif under the arms and an even subtler civavonovono - a breastplate worn by tribal leaders -on the front.
France: While other Six Nations countries brought out new shirts for the World Cup, France opted to make minimal changes to theirs. The three shoulder stripes disappeared and a strange design - contributed by sculptor Jean-Pierre Rives, a former French captain - around the crest.
France (alt): Again, similar to that worn in the Six Nations, but with white shorts, as France were forced to change from blue against Italy.
Georgia: Traditionally red, Georgia tried to ape New Zealand this time. Disappointingly, their template was very similar to that used by Wales in 2011 with minor modifications.
Georgia (alt): With the Eastern Europeans in the same pool as New Zealand, they weren't going to be able to force the original All Blacks to change. This alternative strip looked a lot more like a traditional Georgia outfit.
Ireland: A slight upgrade on the jersey used as Ireland won a second successive Six Nations title, with the disappearance of a collar the biggest change. The 'diamond' grip-tape pattern harked back to a similar one on a shirt from the 1880s, with Canterbury selling a replica too.
Italy: With World Cup rules prohibiting the use of adidas's three-stripe motif, Italy needed to modify their shirt. The collar also changed, with a nautical striped look added.
Japan: Made a splash with an excellent win over South Africa but were unfortunate not to make the knockout stages despite finishing with three victories. As always, Canterbury were the supplier and they presented the hoops in a pleasing 'v' format.
Namibia: Another country to change to Canterbury since the last World Cup. The design was never going to stop traffic but angled horizontal pinstripes did mix things up nicely.
Namibia (alt): The African country wore red for their final pool game against Argentina. The style was like the blue shirt with the colours switched. However, navy accompanied white on the shorts and socks.
New Zealand: Having been given the 'blackest kit ever' by adidas in 2014, there didn't appear to be anywhere left for the All Blacks to go, but their manufacturers still gave it a go. A faint striped pattern in the upper section referenced the yolk on the jersey worn by the 1905 'Originals'.
Romania: At first glance it looks very plain, little more than a tidy rendering of what their kit should look like. Closer examination shows patterns based on traditional Roman rugs.
Romania (alt): Instead of the red or blue change shirts usually worn, BLK went for white with black. Again, the rug patterns were used for decoration. There was no actual need for this strip but it was worn against Ireland and Canada.
Samoa: The busiest of all of the countries' designs (and hardest to draw, as a result), it took its cues from traditional Samoan art. Red featured more heavily than before as a trim colour.
Samoa (alt): Following the same style as the primary shirt, it looks a bit more sedate as the the secondary colour on the front was close to white. Worn against the USA and Scotland.
Scotland: Macron had set their stall out by giving Scotland an ultra-traditional shirt after they took the contract. This thankfully didn't deviate far from that look, with a proper collar continuing while the special tartan commissioned by the SRU in 1990 featured on a shirt for the first time.
South Africa: Asics' previous kit had looked well and this adhered to a similar formula though with a greater splash of gold on the sleeves. The grip tape - the same as that used by Australia - was dubbed 'zombie hands'.
South Africa (alt): Followed the same stylings as the normal strip, in white with green trim. Worn against Scotland but when South Africa played the US, who also play in navy, both countries were in dark shirts.
Tonga: The only country outfitted by Kooga, who used the high collar like that on the 2014-15 Ulster alternative shirt. Tongan tribal patterns were on the sleeves but in an understated manner.
USA: A nice clean look with BLK continuing their good sartorial work. The central chest panel, bordered in red and white to represent the stripes of the American flag, had tonal stars within it.
USA (alt): The stars and stripes motif continued here, in shades of white and grey with navy and red accents. This was worn in the opening-game loss to Samoa.
Uruguay: Appearing at a World Cup for the first time since 2003, the South Americans didn't rock the boat. The only country wearing Kooga, who kept it fairly simple apart from the high collar.
Uruguay (alt): Another instance of a country changing despite there being no clash was Uruguay against Australia. The kit was a white version of the blue offering.
Wales: White shorts returned after Under Armour had dabbled with an all-red look, but gold was a new departure, paired with a darker red stripe. These represented repectively Welsh gold, as once found in the country's mines, and ox-blood, which was used to fortify lime mortar in construction.
The game returned to where it originated, but the hosts ended up in a tough group alongside Australia and Wales, which proved to be their undoing. Grip tape was now ubiquitous but the overall designs were largely restrained, with Canterbury thankfully simplying their output. BLK (formerly Kooga) caught the eye with interesting strips for its roster, each one individually tailed to that particular country's culture.
