Looked for a thread on this already but can't find one.

Ours are quite decent, home shirt is plain as fuck but the away top is lush. We should have gone back to white shorts with the home shirt though.

Here is ours. We have worn it already at our last home game of the season and im on record from that time as absolutely hating it and I still do.

Apart from the fact that the design is lazy (bascially the same as the previous kit) and the colours look awful together, and the slightly different shade of Orange stripe looks terrible, it is simply not a Luton kit, that being its all orange. We had a fan vote to keep the orange when we got promoted back to the league and the orange kit won, fair enough I can begrudgingly accept that but the colours that were voted for were orange and blue, NOT all Orange and certainly not orange and black.

The kit of the last 2 seasons (largely the same as this but with blue and white in there and no weird stripe) I have actually really liked and has looked pretty smart I think, but this one is awful.

As the clubs logos trademarks etc are actually I believe owned by the Supporters Trust I am a little disappointed this happened with no consultation and I do hope its not a long term thing.

Probably shouldnt be letting a bloody football kit wind me up so much, but there you go!

Yeah, that's terrible.

Why did your fans vote to keep orange?

Whenever I think of Luton, I think of white/navy with a splash of orange somewhere.

I voted for that when we had the opportunity. I dont really know why Orange won. By the time we had the vote we had been playing in Orange in the Conference for 5 years (largely due to a sponsorship with Easyjet - although it was dressed up as being a throwback to when we did wear an orange shirt at home back in the 70's - which makes it more annoying that it won tbh). Id guess younger people probably associated the orange with us more than white/blue/orange, and there was a significant number of people who remember watching us in the 70's when Orange and Blue were the home colours to swing the vote that way.

I can accept that albeit begrudgingly, and the orange kit of last season is actually decent. But this one is genuinely awful in my opinion, even the 70's kits were Orange/Blue, not all orange.

I'm still awaiting a decent picture of ours.

They got announced at the Player Awards do, we've returned to blue and black stripes for the home kit and as it's our 125th anniversary we've gone with a replica of our (well New Brompton FC's) original home shirt which is black and white stripes, white collar and no sponsor as the away kit. Our third kit is excrementable, white with yellow sleeves and blue trim.

The home kit is actually worse than the away one. Looks like a child has tried to paint within the lines.

The stripe is actually navy when you see it close up.

Also, on the club shop website it's available with either orange or navy shorts. Hopefully we'll wear the latter more often because that will by default make it a lot better.

The white kit could be nice but is let down by the sponsor, which is the ugliest of the three on the different kits by some distance. Also would benefit from some navy trim and/or navy shorts.



Can't decide about the third kit. Not as good as the all purple one from two seasons ago, maybe better than last season's effort. Doubt we'll wear it much so one for the kids to buy for novelty value mostly (at least that's what I used to do when I was a wee lad, got a god awful silver pin striped monstrosity and even a yellow third kit from the nineties, god knows what they were thinking with that one).

I’ve got that silver one too somewhere! I also have a navy blue with orange trim 3rd kit from I think around 2001 which I am not sure we ever wore in a game!

I imagine we will be wearing the all orange for the most part, we really seem to be pushing the orange being "our" colour thing for whatever reason

it's definitely very "lower league" as a sponsor but hey ho, it's a local company putting money into the club and beggars can't be choosers.

Besides, at least their logo wasn't garish, and even the type of company itself could have been worse:
