Our kit is revealed tomorrow. There have already been some teasers and I'm not sure

Looks like black horizontal pinstripes with a reversed sash. Certainly going to be different

I like the look of it.

Really liked the black kit we had the year we came to this league in 05

Nike are doing our kits this year, will be template kits but at least we'll have some decent leisurewear for sale for once. We might even get them on time!

I rather like the look of that 4th shirt in the pic (the white one with the black and amber sash)

What's the deal with having 4 new shirts though Bees? I strongly believe there's no need at this level for more than 2 kits, so even 3 kits is stretching it a bit too far, as in my book this is another way of maximising financial income from the fans. But 4 new shirts???

The feeling is the third kit will be used if we play someone whose home kit is predominantly white. The fourth kit is a special edition to celebrate 70 years since winning the Amateur Trophy.

I really like all the kits and like the idea that fans can opt to buy the one they prefer. However we are the most expensive in the league for shirts at £50 (£42 for members) so it's not reasonable to think fans will buy 4 shirts. I think most will only buy one so it's unlikely to get more from those anyway.

I really hope they think this through and hopefully swap the 1st and 2nd kits with the 3rd and 4th next year.

Gotta say Barnet fans, I do love those kits. No need for four, of course, but very nice, original looking design.

As I say every year, I'd imagine ours will have blue and white quarters at a guess.

Not a fan of the seat belt kits. Working out fairly well for Tottenham this season though

These were our options for next season:

Originally I was an undoubted C, but I'm coming around to A (assuming A, B and C is left to right).

The vote ended ages ago but no kit has been announced yet.

Not a fan of stripes probably for obvious reasons, especially red and white

Why do clubs wear a change strip when they don't have too, example Stevenage at home in Red/White, AFC Wimbledon away could play in Blue, but play in green, what's the go with that ?

I think I remember hearing in that teams sometimes have to play in a new kit a certain number of times per season according to the contract.

Pretty sure we play in the green one when we can because the players like it and we have a decent record in it

I do like the look of the green one as well, I do know we have different shirt sponsors on them , but some clubs only have the one shirt sponsor, so it does not matter which one they wear. The clubs are not going to sell too many if they dont wear them, has Wimbledon worn the 3rd kit at all this year ?

New kit release day must be a very exciting time for Bristol Rovers fans.

"Is it going to be a white shirt with blue quarters or a blue shirt with white quarters?! Ooh the excitement is too much!"

Maybe the new owners will go for Black and White with green and red trim in honour of the Jordanian national flag.

The green striped kit aids Bayo's appearance?

Really annoys me when teams do that. Particularly when we do, I know we've got a reasonable away kit this year but our colours clash with about three sides, and we always end up with a third kit anyway.

One season we ended up with a Mansfield-esq 3rd or 4th kit for one match in the Conference, which ended up being given to our fans team after one outing.

I don't know if I missed something but who are 'we'?

We never wear blue and white stripes away from home and it is a bugbear of many fans. Our excuse has always been that because we have different sponsors for home and away they would want their logo associated with their kit sort of thing which is a shame.

Especially if the away kits are A) something to be ashamed of like lurid green B) So bland that when it's not your team, you forget who is playing halfway through the highlights C) Not dissimilar enough from the home kit D) just a reverse.

''Look, no-one will know it's Barry Corr's shirt, just tuck in it a bit, grazie Piero''.

Actually really like this kit, the only thing I can fault is the pinstripes not going up the back.

I think we have it written in some formal document that we will wear the quarters unless there's an actual clash - which we usually seem to stick to.

But yeah, as with Bristol Rovers, ours is possibly the most restrictive kit design that you can get to work with, you're pretty much restricted to changing twiddly bits on sleeves and the collar and so on to try and make things look different.
