FGR kits are always cringe tbh. Who the fuck thought tiger print was a good idea??
You really don't want to see the videos used to promote the first zebra kit: it had the players (predominately Shawn McCoulsky) hiding camoflagued in a forest. Think the white and black version was fine....the others....well, the green kit is far from the worst green kit we've worn, at least.

Just love the black and blue third kit. I've always liked the blue association since Hummel let us down, and we used the plain ocean blue strip from the local sports shop. Would have been happy with that stripe permanently. Must be the first time in years that the ecotricity logo is not on the front. The sea shepherd logo is quite striking, and love the waves.

Yeah it’s not bad, another one that’s bit of a throwback from the 80s.

I quite like it when we add a little bit of black.

Well, we'll be wearing a 'pre-season kit'* on Saturday and the new Macron kits will be released sometime in the next 2 weeks.

*I assume Macron training kit.

Record shirt sales this season. The third kit being the most popular has already sold out. Buggar!

Got the new shirt today; seems we aren’t going for all white as the shorts on sale are black so back to traditional colours after last years MK Dons white and gold look.

Love the silhouettes of Vale Park that make up the sleeve patterns!

Someone has leaked our new away kit online and its Blue with weird patterns similar to the Kalamazoo Blue kit of the early 90s.

Sorry but the MK Dons kit just looks grubby...like someone wore it while servicing their car and wiped their hands on it.
There's a few comments like that but I really like the smoky texture on it. We've had a couple of plain shirts in a row so something different is welcome. It's a lot better than some of the Errea efforts, that 18/19 one with gold stripes was a travesty.

I guess the main thing is that the club's fans like it...I know our kits aren't widely liked but we love them, at least we can't really be accused of copying someone else's idea.

That said, there are times when people post pics of their kit and I think they look smart...even if they aren't ours...loved the Cambridge blue and white away kit of a couple of seasons ago, Grimsby's usually look OK (might be a bias with that one towards black and white stripes, black shorts and red socks), Coventry's Two-Tone top was also pretty smart.

Its down to preference isnt it, people weren't too keen on our chess board kit a couple of seasons back but I loved it, something different.

I remember that kit, another one that I thought looked fine...agree that it won't have been to everyone's taste...fairly similar to the Coventry two-tone.

Ours.

Overall I like them, quarters are very restrictive to actually change the design much, this is the plainest iteration we've had in a while though.

I like the red kit too, although it does look very Welsh. Mind you we have a former full Welsh international (Sam Vokes) and U21 international (Joe Jacobson) in the side, so...

I like the Wycombe ones. Sometimes I think keeping it simple is the best which is one of the reasons I love our white and gold top from last season. Am a fan of the quartered tops in general though. We once had a yellow and black one as our away top in the mid-90's and looked one of our better efforts.

So last year we brought out this training kit - it's a map of Wycombe at the top...

and here's Fleetwood's new away kit...

:shifty:

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure we weren't the first club to do this either, but still...

Confirmed today that we won't be getting a new kit until Autumn so September/October time. We're using a temporary kit for the friendlies that will be auctioned off for the community and the players will wear the new kit for the start of the season. The fans just won't get it until much later.

I am 100% convinced that I will like the temporary kit a lot more than the one we eventually end up with, it's almost guaranteed!

I'm glad we haven't gone for a map of Nailsworth on our shirt...it might just about cover a sleeve at a push!

We had a temporary kit for a couple of months when we came out of administration and it was better than the proper one! So much so we had an almost identical version as a proper one a few seasons later.

Our new away kit has been leaked which is rightfully upset Carol on social media. Image has been taken down but looks ‘interesting’

Look forward to the official reveal to get a proper look.

Ours are OK, not great but I've seen a lot worse.
