New Kit Launched

Recommended Posts

Im all for going down the route of in-house design and local (ish) manufacture if it means we dont get a run of the mill, sunday league effort for a strip.

 

The nike tops were barkin'.

 

Also, if the profit margin is increased then happy days.

It seems like a decent company to work with too. They donated kits to fans games and the youth teams as far as I know.

Nothing wrong with the 1874 thing as a concept, but the branding on strips etc has always just looked dodgy so far. The new logo looks like something from a weans toy, to be honest.

 

I’d like to hope that the training range can improve and that we can get some custom stuff on that front via the current manufacturers though. The 1874 branding could work really with that if it was done properly.

I am glad that we are spared another of Pedrodelawasp's efforts from a kids colouring competition, but there are firms out there who specialise in making kits for SME Football clubs like ourselves and some of the off the peg catalogue efforts would spare us the embarrassment of having EST.1874 instead of a reputable kit manufacturer.

This is exactly the niche in the market that Vision are trying to fill. If we can't get a Joma* or Macron deal of our own, we can at least get a decent quality bespoke kit and we get to choose what 'manufacturer logo' goes on it (if any). 

*Speaking of Joma (who are mentioned elsewhere in the thread), Andrew Barrowman is their Senior Brand Manager for Scotland and did speak to Warren Hawke about their offering a couple of years ago (but it didn't go anywhere). The option for bespoke home and away with Joma seems to be available but maybe the price per shirt is higher than we're getting at the moment. Quality is always really good in any Joma gear I've seen.

Joma provide the community trust training gear, not seen it in the flesh but it doesn't look anything more special than what we're getting from Vision

I played for a team that had Joma kits and they were pretty poor. Only lasted a season.

I've had the opposite experience but they offer a couple of different  teamwear catalogues, so the quality might be different when you're a not on a 'pro' team contract.

Same with Macron, the affordable stuff is very cheap looking and you need to really pay to get the decent training and team wear (and wear at least two sizes bigger to get in the replica shirt)

Joma is ham honkin. By far the poorest of the big manufacturers.

I've not had any first hand experience with Joma kits, but I've not heard anyone with a good word to say about them. I'm happy enough with our current suppliers, the quality of the merchandise I've bought thus far has been absolutely fine.

I have a Joma kit that's around 15 years old now and it's still in great condition despite weekly wear.


Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.


Do you like Abba?

Joma kits are barkin. Have never seen one that looked any good. Better off with Vision if they make good looking tops with our fans involved in picking decent kits.

How's the collar material on the vision kit now? Rarely wear the pinstripe one because it's annoying and know the players didn't like it.

Some of their Italian and Spanish kits in recent years have been great - Espanyol and Sampdoria spring to mind. Exeter and Swansea are their only EFL clients and their kits aren't bad (not sure about the green and black Swansea away right enough)

Just got an email to say I can pick up my too today, as I preordered. 


There's a storm on the horizon

And for that I can't see the sun

For I'll keep a waiting on the pavement

I picked mines up this morning. Have to say it is an absolute cracker. 

Nice and simple like a ton top should be and really good quality.

The top above looks different from the one the Morton twitter posted earlier. 

 

Lazy marketing. An oversized top thrown onto a manikin.

If MCT takeover does happen hope they have a look at stuff like that, the marketing stuff is obviously Smiths but they should do better.

What marketing were you looking for?
