I've been thinking this for some time.  This delay, it builds anticipation and a clamour for the new kit.  When it eventually arrives, some won't give a monkeys, they will just buy.  I suppose its the same thing that Apple do with their products. 

 

If this was a one-off then I might possibly agree - but it is like this time and time again.

 

Back when I used to buy myself a shirt I remember one year they were not out until October.

The club has long had an inept marketing department and the club shop seems poor if a bit improved.  

 

But i am genuinely baffled as to why the timing of a new season kit matters very much. I am age 49 so out the equation but presumably people who buy it buy it anyway?  Seems odd to be that interested in July

I know lots of clubs have released theirs already, there are still lots releasing theirs daily, and quite a few still to release theirs. If you check out the new kits thread in the non SWFC section.

A lot like to have it for their / their kids' holidays - as I don't go until October half term not to fussed by a delay.

 

Suppose there is also the fact they are so pricy - you want the current one for as long as possible to vaguely justify the cost: if this comes out in September it would only be current for 8 months.

I guess.  I'm glad neither of my kids have ever felt they want me to buy them a new shirt every season!

Has anybody heard of a company called S6Clothing. Came across them on Tw@tter yesterday. I recall DC stating before the end of last season that he is exploring all avenues regarding kit supplier, even local firms or making the kits ourselves. Could this S6Clothing be linked somehow?

If you're embarrassed by a club not releasing a shirt then you need some perspective in you life.  It's only a replica weeing shirt 

Each to their own, but based on the fact that all other clubs have kits out, notwithstsnding the time we have had to plan for our 150th anniversary year,  consider it embarrassing. 

 

Fortunately fans will buy in large numbers irrespective, despite how badly organised the club is from a merchandising point of view.

Interesting .. good spot

 

wonder if the blue will have all the names of historical players and key words in the SWFC history - guessing based on their swfc strapline picture thing.

When you say "all", what you actually mean is: "all except for Fulham, Reading, Bolton, Burton and Preston..." don't you?

 

And why do you feel embarrassed? Do you honestly think - at a time when the vast majority of football fans are only interested in transfer news - that we're some kind of laughing stock because our kits aren't out yet? Does anyone really care that much?

S6Clothing are a brand of Silver Oak Marketing Ltd, and according to the Silver Oak website they make licensed non-branded football shirts, hats, scarves etc for Man Utd, Chelsea, Tottenham plus a few other domestic clubs, also official International Merchandise for Wales and Northern Ireland. Nothing on the site for us but could possibly have found our kit manufacturers for this season. Very underwhelmed if correct.

Why would you be underwhelmed by a kit manufacturer, its just a company who makes it, it is irrelevant

The first image says will be delivered one week after general sale at shop so my thoughts are that they have nothing to do with the making of the shirt. Also says winner announced 26th of July. By my calculations one week before that is Wednesday 19th of July. It usually gets released a few days before going on sale so im going to predict Friday 14th when the kit will be released. 

Happy to help.

Detective flo.
