Home one is as expected as its 150th anniversary they have taken the design from an old kit.

Away is abit racid but hey ho i couldn't really give a toss as long as we win.

Strange thing with these are they were 'in-house' maunfacture which is a company called Elev8? Doesn't seem to be an info on this company anywhere on the internet, something to do with energy drinks which is what the away kit is sponsored by but seems like it could be a new company set up by Chansiri maybe to help get around financial fair play? Just guessing?

Yeah it's a sports drink company that he owns, so we'll have two big sponsors for our kits now all courtesy of the chairman. As for the kits they'll do, can't believe so many fully grown men are blabbering like babies about a football kit. They shouldn't be wearing it anyway.

The home kit is quite nice but it's Ipswich not Wednesday.
Fancy ignoring the traditional blue and white stripes on such an important anniversary.

The away kit looks like a kids pair of pyjamas but I suppose it's different.

Traditionally we have usually had a break from playing in stripes so in a way it does keep with it, however I do much prefer stripes. It's far better than the Gillingham kit we played in last year.

Maybe it's just the images used, which are shockingly poor quality, but they look cheap as owt. Hopefully that away kit looks better in the flesh, but if you're going to have a large badge with a blue background, what's the point of having a shirt that the blue clashes with? It was the same issue with last year's away kit (black with orange trim), the blue badge just looks daft. This was the advantage of the previous art deco owl, you could have it whatever colour you wanted. Last year's away strip would have looked mint with an orange art deco owl to match the trim.
Also, the sponsor on the away shirt is clearly photoshopped onto that image. Amateur hour.

Bump...

Anyone released their shirt for next season yet? We've finally announced that Adidas are doing ours, wanted them to make it for years.

(I know we're not here next season but the prem forum is shit)

I really hate the slogans clubs add to these things nowadays

Otherwise, fairly standard kit. Ours won't get announced till Mid/Late July as usual, sometimes isn't on sale till after the season has started. We always get terrible service from Adidas, but they do make better kits in general IMO - especially those based on stripes.

I hated when Nike created ours. Though I heard that for the first year you have to have a standard Nike one and then after that they will make the shirts to the clubs actual designs.

Depends how big a club you are.

Most signing up with Nike, Adidas etc at our level get an almost generic design only the proper big boys can dictate to them unless you go to a smaller manufacturer, heard we are going with Hummel and stripes are back.

I don't know how the finances work but we make our own nowadays. I guess the margin would be much higher doing it that way.

Still think its hilarious how lazy nike are with our kits, easily the worst manufacturers out there.

17/18 at the top, 18/19 at the bottom.

That is ridiculous, can't imagine many fans buying it if they have last seasons. Essentially paying upwards of £40 to have 32red on your shirt instead of Tempobet.
