New kit for 20-21 season - anyone know?

Post by dave the minion » Wed Jul 22, 2020 6:07 pm

Does anyone know if we are getting a new kit for next season at all? I haven't heard any rumours or anything, but just noticed the club online shop are selling off last season's kits dirt cheap, so wonder if they are trying to shift stock ahead of new ones coming in?

I wonder if we'll have a deal with a proper sportswear company, and whether there's any sponsors lined up?

Iles has been saying for a while that a new kit is in the offing. Not only does it raise money but it’s another fresh start. And it’ll be a pleasure to get away from that godawful clipart shite from last year.

It can BE cheap without LOOKING cheap.

Given our shirt sponsors are Home Bargains, I'd say it will be extremely difficult for them not to look cheap again.

The sponsor was *not* the problem last year.

I'm usually broadly in Bruce's camp (albeit I bought the Hummel one and would prefer plain white no sponsor) but last year's really was egregiously bad. Let's get within the bell curve again, lads

Glad we got that done with - see you next year mate :mrgreen:

There's a chap who does BWFC concept kits - curiously enough, https://twitter.com/ConceptBWFC - and while it could be said he 'cheats' a little by using the branding of kit manufacturers we're not signed up to, there's no doubt his designs are far, far nicer than last season's shambles.
. CODE: SELECT ALL CODE: SELECT ALL .
He's also done some updated 'versions' of classic kits...
. CODE: SELECT ALL CODE: SELECT ALL ...whereas last season we went back to 1990s DeskTopPublishing backgrounds with curious dots and a minging half-collar.

Now, I know there are a host of other complications to kit design, not least that manufacturers will have their own design teams and set templates and that decisions are almost always made for finance rather than finesse. However, I do note that the club has been using the creative strengths of the fanbase – hiring keen young videographers for signing-reveal montages, etc – and the club also happily retweeted some of @ConceptBWFC's designs for 'international' kits (eg BWFC in Jamaica colours for Bibi Gardner or Scotland for Super John). So I'm hopeful that last season's aberration was an avoidable mis-step and that we'll see a better kit this time. Maybe one so nice that even Bruce Rioja will like it... :mrgreen:

Aye - and slightly (but only slightly) more realistically, here's a concept with the actual Home Bargains livery...

pointless conversation as it will not happen (but i'm mid conference call and looking for distractions!!), but that white kit, with navy edging and one set of shoulder stripes navy and one red (a la Lyon kit) would be tremendous

Interesting - back to Macron as manufacturer? I suppose it saves having to redo all the signs outside the club shop....

There was a tweet yesterday saying Macron is our new long-term "technical sponsor". Helpful to our finances I'd have thought.
