A plea to Sheffield Wednesday Football Club

Recommended Posts

Screenshot 2020-05-13 at 12.37.14.jpg


When things are back to normal and back up and running again you will be releasing the new shirts.

Please - could we do the right thing here - please be the first football club to scrap sizes like 'small', 'medium' 'xxxl' etc and instead describe and sell them by their actual size in inches/cm?

That way we eradicate all the problems that we've seen for the last few seasons where nobody knows what the hell these things fit like, or what actual real size they are. All the problems would be gone in one easy to do move.

Thank you

 

(I make this plea every year, every year we don't do it, and every year we have fans asking a zillion questions about the sizing, having to return their shirts, or other issues)

Pit to pit measurement to supplement the normal sizing structure would be good. Have you tried appealing directly though?

Yes a few times

 

Pit to pit measurement would be ideal, but not if it's then confused by them calling a certain size 'medium' when the pit to pit measurements for our shirts differs to the 'medium' of shirts made by other companies/shops etc if that makes sense

It does but that's the clothing industry for you, a fitted Nike medium will differ from a fitted Adidas medium for example or Next will differ to Topshop

Exactly why replacing the sizings we use now with measurements would help

Just looking at treating myself to this season's away shirt and the club provide a size guide.

 

S 34/36

M 38/40

L 42/44

XL 46/48 and so on.

 

If that's provided why does it need to be on the shirt?

 

*please note AndyTrig is exceptional tetchy at the moment as he's fed up with working from home.

Previous to me kicking off about it a couple of seasons back, the club didn't provide that information at all - just sizes

Yeah


Along with 'XL" etc


And it turns out 'XL' is what people go for, and turns out it would only fit a small incey wincey baby

Precisely

That's my exact point why this is needed

PLUS

Sizing from places like China and Thailand is different to UK sizing

Can they have a bit more girth around the belly as not every fan in their 40's is in peak physical condition. :tango:
