Well must admit I’m impressed today.

the organisation of the staff during this busy day has really impressed me

1. a good system for ques controlled from the outside ques outside allowing certain amount at a time to enter then get shirts que again

2. The shirts they have plenty on the shelves for customers to get but once at counter receive a fresh on in cellophane wrapping clean and ready.

3. Pre ordered organised and ready to collect.

4. Staff very professional (flustered but professional) very understanding and helpful.

 

on to the shirts itself welll very happy it’s diffo to what was advertised at owls in park.

1. The chansiri accross front is not printed on its actually part of fabric :D very good.

2. Material very nice light weight

3. Properly stitched all over

4. WAWAW is part of fabric not printed

5. Date of anniversary not printed it is part of fabric.

 

Overall im impressed and I do think ya worth money.

What’s it like in the presence of flammable vapours-would you be confident not to end up on fire from static discharge? Can you report back when you have washed it? Make sure the badge and any lettering has not fallen off.  All valid questions that deserve an answer. :ph34r:

Checked online about 11:30, 12-13yrs boys gone already. Surely that's not it?

Glad no most people had a positive experience today.

 

I apologise if I bring the mood down a tad but it was different for me. I haven't bought a shirt for a few years, usually get them on offer for things like the gym if I do buy em. However I was in the area and was 50/50 about getting one for a change.

 

First impression was the parking, made sense they had somebody in pointing people where to park. As some will just take forever otherwise so thumbs up for that.

 

In the store the line was far too long, I expected this so no complaints about that. However at just after 1pm I only counted 6 staff on the tills for huge lines. Suppose people need a lunch break but wasn't impressed the line hadn't moved in 5 minutes I was there looking around. 

 

The quality of the shirts looked average at best to me and personally I'm not a fan of the kind of material used. Again I can't complain about the material as that's a preference. The stitching around the eleven8 looked cheap, several shirts I looked at looked almost dirty, with marks on. I've since read they were giving out packaged ones at the till, fair enough but seeing these put me off buying, that coupled with not being able to try one on. 

 

Glad most seem happy, but just wasn't for me. Not a wasted journey as I said I was already in the area, but wouldn't have minded treating myself to the shirt for a change. At least I saved £50

Just read loads on Facebook moaning about the quality. Just to address your points, the Elev8 logo is embroidered and mine looks fine but sometimes with embroidery all it takes is one tiny pull for it to look a mess but is very easily addressed. Dirty shirts will be from people handling them and thats why this season giving packaged versions is so much better.

 

The last point that i've seen on Facebook about the thickness of the material makes me laugh, it's not 1960, they're supposed to be think and lightweight. Comparing to other offerings it's par for the course.

To your last point I know they are, I'm only 30 and played football myself so I know what material is often used, just not my presence to have to tight clingy material. Not comfortable, but as I said each to their own. 

 

I also agreed it made made more sense giving a packaged one at the till. 

 

Thanks for the reply but the only points you addressed were things I understood and was ok with lol

 

Cheers for clearing up the eleven8 logo though 

 

Who knows I might change my mind in a month and buy one. Today was more of a spur of the moment trip whilst I was there so I doubt it. Could obv order on line but woman in the shop mentioned sizes were smaller and I've already seen others say the same. I'm too lazy to wee wee about and send one back to get another

Call me picky , but i prefer my Wednesday shirt with blue and white stripes on it. 

 

Ipswich shirt £59 

Wednesday shirt £43 

 

No brainer 

 

So you'd sooner put £43 into Toffs than £49 into Wednesday?

 

I REALLY don't get our fans.

I was just about to post after seeing the stuff on FB re quality and saw your post so made sense to quote it. It was more a general post than specific response to you though

The shirts aren’t really comparable though are they? I’m sure he’d rather put the cash into Wednesday for something he’d like.

No one tells me what I should spend my  very hard earned and we'll deserved income on ...

And I'm sure S36 aspires to that same ethos too  I really look forward to seeing his own response to you ..

Seems pretty obvious to me.

 

He likes that shirt that has stripes on (as I do). He wants a Wednesday shirt and prefers the striped over the new one. It isn't about shunning the club, it's about being a customer and spending your money on something you want, not blindly buying something just to put a few quid in your club.

It's probably because the Toffs product is more like a Wednesday strip with it having our iconic Blue and White stripes

 

Its way better than this latest effort IMO
