The quality of the shirt material has been much better with puma, I can’t remember who manufactured the one that pulled within seconds of putting it on but it was awful!!

We are. Umbro.

I think pumas been very good. Especially over recent years. Hard to believe we have had them 8 plus years.

Umbro seem to have classic kits though. So a good move.

Cheers guys. Just been on their website. Lots of clubs, lots of good looking kits but don’t take away our blue sleeves(as West Ham).

All the Umbro stuff is actually made by these guys https://www.gldgroup.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (Iconix own Umbro but don't do any actual manufacturing, etc).

We should be big enough for a custom kit but we won't be getting a pro kit and a fans kit like some other clubs have, they'll all be the same.

Think that was the v neck Adidas kit, shocking quality.

I hope we have a kit that has an identical design to pretty much every club who are also wearing Umbro.

And some weird Chinese betting company that takes over the whole shirt.

And - most importantly - definitely not hooped socks.

Horrific fit though. You must need the arms of an 8 year old to fit the shirt that matches your chest size.

Errea. Pulled when you looked at it in the packaging.

Wonder what they'll do with the pricing with the move to Umbro? Think it was mentioned earlier, but from a glance at the club shops of Bournemouth, Everton and B@$tards, the original price of shirts is around about £50. I know ours have creeped up over the years, but being substantially cheaper was always something I felt was really important for a club of our profile versus others around the leagues.

Umbro could save a ton of design costs and make a fortune in sales by releasing this... complete with that badge!

If you click on the Umbro link on that site, there is a claret and blue shirt shown that I'd be proper chuffed with.

:lol: Funnily enough, the fitting guide does refer to a ahem, rounder stomach area.
I'm hoping that it might double as a cycling shirt as I've had no luck in my dealings with the Welsh guy and his firm. They made a superb claret and blue proper cycling shirt but the hassle of communicating with them was not worth it.

How rude !

You're welcome. Just to clarify, communication wasn't difficult with them being Welsh, it was them not being arsed wot done it.
I should have persevered, taken delivery and then refused to pay, Cardiff-style. That would have shown them.
