I spent 1 minute looking for somewhere that does custom kits and another 5 minutes making this. They produce the kits with everything included for less then £30 inc VAT.

Why can't we do something similar to this?

That's really smart...way better than the 4 options we've been given

Surely given we’ve changed supplier we could’ve moved away from Joma to a smaller brand like Tag or even to an own brand like Morton have done, and us in the past and gotten a bespoke kit for a cheaper price. I looked at Tag too before seeing this and made this one up

The 4 strip options are pretty poor, but suppose that's what happens when we go for an off the shelf number. For what it's worth I voted for number 4. 

I totally understand why the club are going for off the shelf options, we just cannot afford to get a bespoke kit. For those suggesting  we go for a different manufacturer, I assume other options were looked at and pitch teamwear/Joma were giving us the best deal. I have used pitch teamwear in the past for various bits of kits and equipment and they have always been top class so I have no issue with them being used. Unfortunately the term beggars cannot be choosers comes to mind. We should be grateful if we have a team to support following the coronavirus situation, I reckon not everyone will be so lucky.

It's only a couple of years til the club is 150 years old. Maybe this will run until then and we'll smash it out the park with the kit.

The club can't buy in shirts for 30 quid a pop, they'd need to sell them for 50 or more. I still think there's a middle ground, I don't buy that we can't have a nice bespoke kit that is reasonably affordable. If we don't sell many kits then it's important to keep the folk who do buy them happy. I'm waiting to see what the other kit options are though before throwing any criticism about.

You might have some more knowledge on this subject than myself, but the way people are talking we don't sell enough kits so I wouldn't have thought the club make a notable amount of money from kit sales. For that reason I wouldn't have thought the profit margin would matter much?

It would be nice if we had a decent kit that was actually worth buying though rather than these boring off the shelf efforts.

Its for that reason we need to try and maximise the profit! If loads of people wanted one we could lower the price.

Seeing a lot of folk say that option 4 is a "throwback" to that diadora top in the 90s, I can't be the only one who doesn't see a likeness there other than it being yellow and black in similar places? The actual design looks like it was drawn up by an obsessed Tron fan.

This vote will be followed by a vote for a white kit, then a vote to determine which is the home kit. There’s a very good statement up online responding to the grumbles from myself (and others) and hinting that we might get something special for the 150th anniversary kit...which I’m already excited about. Fair play to the club for that. I won’t grumble any more...or at least until I don’t like the anniversary kit...

Agreed. Pretty fair statement. 

Most important factor is to be still around for 150 year anniversary.  Off the shelf will be much lower cost.

If we can get a bespoke home kit from Joma, I don't see why you can't. We've had them for 4 years and next season is bespoke as well. Our away kits have always been out of the catalog, so I'd reckon that this yellow one is the away kit and you'll get a "proper" white bespoke one as a home kit.

 

Edit - Just read that statement, well that sucks.

Statement is very fair. Off the shelf makes  sense in the current climate. At least we’ve not tried to be Stirling Albion again.

High hopes for the 150 effort though. Assuming we make it that far.
