Next Year's Kit?

Recommended Posts

Trust me Romey, I used to work for Nike Europe, and in the 6 years that I did, I came to realise that true fans will buy whatever shirt their club puts out, no matter how crazy/disgusting/weird etc..etc.. as long as the club is doing ok on the pitch and they get exposure in the global media, people will buy them, whether it be a die hard that goes to every game or the foreign fan that just likes the sponsors beer and see's 1 in 10 games on the tv!!

 

 

Judging by the reactions of other Everton fans on the forums I've looked at then a lot, and I mean A LOT, of Everton fans will not be buying it, and I won't be either.

After an initial shock, I quite like the new away kit. I'll wait to see the home before deciding which to purchase though.

I have posted on here how much I disliked the new away kit but I was home on leave today and popped in to the toffee shop to see if it really was as bad as it looked and to my surprise I actually liked it in fact I have ended up buying it!

 

It really is comfortable to wear so I take it all back

 

Dunc...? Noooo....! let me down aha :P I think i will have to see it before i pass judgement, otherwise my head might pop.

I have to say that I dont think the shirt looks as bad when its accompanied by the shorts but its certainly not to my liking.

i think another good marketing plan. ive been impressed with kit bag, and i quite like the shirts so far.

i think it was genius bringing out the away shirt first too.

more people buy the home shirt, bring out the away shirt first, get the impatient sales and then hit us with the home shirt.

 

oh, and dixie's statue in the shirt is a hell of an idea, i hope it fits him properly though

It is nice but it's been described as forward thinking - plain is not forward thinking surely?

I think the "forward thinking" part is more to do with the super-duper go faster easy breathe fabric isn't it?

Maybe you're right.

 

Arteta being part of the advertising pictures a good sign do you reckon?

not really, mikel silvestre is used in Arsenals new kit campaign? These are taken months ago :)

It looks nice and at least they haven't followed the bizarre colour schemes they have had with the other kits. I'll probably get this and have one of the new signings on the back - what shirt number will Messi be? :P

Agreed, plus they have tried to cover all corners of the market. They have a modern, quirky design for the away kit, but a traditional design for the home. It is all to make money of course but it is nice to see they are putting some thought into it.

i like it. simple shape, all blue, round neck. I can understand the opinions of it being boring but i like a little simplicity in my life, considering the chaos i usually put up with. I think even the away one is growing on me too, but im not sure yet. Definately not as against it when i 1st saw it.

That dixie statue with the kit on is amazing, i love it!

 

For the people who buy full kits for there own football games etc like myself, i noticed you could probably keep the shorts from last year, although on the socks they have changed the efc an le coq logos round, but still i would use last years socks, me being skint, is the reason behind this, but now ive decided to also buy the everton training top, the one rodwell shows on everton direct along with the black shorts, just for a change...

 

Useless info probably, but thought i'd share it :)

Not sure about that, rumour is that Wigan didn't buy that Chilean striker because they didn't think a northern lad would buy a shirt with the name Ponce on the back :lol:

Don't forget people if you're buying a kit (or anything else from the club) please go through the Kitbag link at the top of the page; the costs of running the site are continually increasing so if we can keep the sponsors on board it'd be great.

 

Even if you're buying from one of the shops you can place the order online and pick it up in person....won't cost any extra and it means Louis can sleep at night :lol: .

 

Shameless advertising over :) .

I've always preferred tops which show creative use of all team colours so a flash of white in the shirt would have been good but I like its sleek design, and will be buying it asap. Must admit, after the away kit, I was expecting some sort of psychadellic rainbow of colours so im glad to see just blue. Also, think dixie should keep the kit on all season.

Pre-ordered the new home....first time ever (for me) I think. I'm ridiculously excited about it for a man of my age (luckily my mental age is considerably more adolescent :P ).

It should do, otherwise pre-ordering would be a bit of a waste of time!

That's what I thought but there were still two delivery options on it, "standard" which quotes 3-5 days and "express" which is 1-2 days. Why give the option for an upgraded delivery speed if it's going to be delivered on a set day anyway :mellow: ?

 

 

This is pretty poor also, looking at the small print...

 

"If your parcel is sent by Royal Mail, please allow 15 working days for delivery of your order, before contacting our Customer Services team."

 

WTF!?

Was a bit overcrowded in our house that morning so would have been a bit public :lol: .

 

Had an email saying that the shirt was despatched at 6.00pm today via Royal Mail :) . Does that mean if they're unusually efficient I'll get it tomorrow :P .

Honestly, this is the best kit in years in my opinion. Getting back to more stark flat front designs...albeit with a sponsor on the front. No slashes, swooshes or embelishments of any kind, just that beautiful blue.

Arrived this morning....wife got to the post first and decided it'd be fun to hide it and pretend it hadn't come <_< .

 

She relented and gave it to me after I sunk into a corner of the room sobbing.

 

It's great....much nicer shade of blue than last year's I think.

 

 

Side note....saw ManU's new home kit in town today....horrible...and the white stripe down the sleeve feels like it's made of rubber :mellow: .

 

Apparently...

 

"...every shirt will be made entirely from recycled polyester, each created from up to eight plastic water bottles as part of Nike’s ‘Considered Design’ programme."

very jealous Mike. Im just hoping my hints for my birthday have been taken seriously!

 

Never understood the names and badges thingy. Numbers i get because i played for a team who used to wear blue so i could get away with my Everton kit.
