One87One Away is the Dortmund template with the fading hoops. It split opinion on here when mentioned before. Obviously in Orange.


Hoops?

The kit is solid orange :|


It's non an exact copy of the Dortmund shirt - fewer hoops, lighter fading.

Entered on the website for the kit launch as I had nothing else to do today. Got picked and went along, and was pretty underwhelmed by the whole thing.

It was effectively a short video on a VR head set, first with some old players talking about old kits and then the players in the changing room seeing it for the first time.

Kits are both nice, like the home shirt but would have preferred a solid hoop. The white shorts/socks look good with the shirt. Similar to last season on the back to be able to see numbers.

Away kit was nice Orange/grey. It's a luminous orange, would have been better in a more traditional orange shade that we had in 08/09?

The oddest thing I found is inviting 100 people to the launch and not having it there to buy? Completely missed a trick from a sales point of view!

No Fixed Abode Think yellow body from the raglan sleeves down and that's pretty much the new Reading away kit.


:lol:

No Fixed Abode Similar to Reading's away kit - but the body is yellow on the Reading kit with the sleeves being dark and light blue.

Mmm I like both of these. The faded hoops on the Oranje seems a bit unnecessary though.

Meh, it's some outfits for some men to run around in. I occasionally get one for that purpose myself. I don't think I'll make a purchase this time. My world is unaltered by happiness or sadness.

Not a fan of either of those. Can't believe I've waited until nearly August to see them. I'm boycotting the club.

Thoughts - Very happy to see a return to white shorts and white socks. I don't like how the club mess about with the home colours every year or so. You'd never catch a Liverpool or a United etc doing that! Keep it white shorts and socks please going forwards.

Home shirt is nice, but I feel the blue shoulders and arms is perhaps too blue. Maybe would look better with white bubbles to break it up, or a blue strip instead - but I do like it a lot!

Away is tip-top. Bright colours is a winner for me again. I like the Dutch feel to it. It's just a nice kit!

Keepers is also much better. No more pink!!

Overall very happy, and some envious QPR comments to top it off!

First instincts and reaction is that I like both.

I've not bought a shirt for years but I'm likely to get the away shirt

They seem passable. First reaction for me is

The away jersey is nice. Half hoops are interesting and will probably age horribly.

The hoops on the main are awful. Why are they bubbly?

Home reminds me of 2010/11.

Away reminds me of 2008/9.

Some idiot ironed it without first turning the shirt inside out

My thoughts as well.
Utterly disinterested in the annual tinkering with the kit and cannot understand the analysis it attracts. They are just shirts... as long as the team performs who cares if the blue is 'too blue' or the orange is 'too bright'.

What names are people getting on the back ? I had Norwood last season, am thinking of getting Oliviera this time.

My mum washed my Doyle 06-07 on a hot wash and not inside out that season. Devastating.
