I'd much prefer something more modern. Tired of teams trying to do the retro thing.For what it's worth though, cracking effort!!!

Maybe it's an age thing, but to me this is not 'retro', it's what football kits look like. Classy.

This is Gerry. Be like Gerry.

Agree - modern shirts starting to look like athlete tops - a football shirt should have more character for me

If you guys can find more images of these umbro kits I'd like to make them to put in a future Bristol city kit pack for pro evolution soccer =)

If Carlsberg did football kits they would probably look like the Bristol City kit from our first division days. 

Stick with one kit City.... price it at £20 and you will sell thousands. keep it the same year in year out. Flippin simples. 

The City board wonder why so few people, relatively, come to AG with a red shirt... duhhhhh.

Now that the club have manufacturing control you would think they would get it.. thick as two short planks... another missed opportunity.

That would literally be one of the worst business ideas ever, even for Bristol Sport!

Why not? The shirt is your clubs identity. I don't buy the shirts every season, but I don't see a problem with people that do. I do cringe when I see people wear shirts around the shops, but if you're going to a game then why not? Wear your colours with pride.

I think our kit man has to do it for obvious reasons. As for everyone else, not sure.

I haven't had a city home shirt for about 12 years so could only guess that some see it as a collectors item or whatever.

If the shirts were cheaper I would buy one every season but im waiting for us to get a nice home shirt first!

Not at AG obviously though. He would just have to unzip his coat and stroll on past with who knows what in his pockets

Don't be so silly, if someone was sneaking something in they'd obviously leave it above all layers of clothes apart from their coats ;)

All i hope is that they make a replica kit that fits my son (5 year old) !

Ditto. My son started football club last September when he turned 3.   

Living in South London I want him to have a bit of identity and wear a City kit because he is surrounded by the default Chelsea, and/or Palace local kits, but all I can dress him in is an England kit because the baby kit BS make is too small (obvious) and youth shirts start from a ridiculously old age. 

Missed opportunity by BS, but I'm hardly surprised given their track record.

So make it cheaper AND make it last longer? Just basic economics shows why that would be a ridiculous idea.

If we sell 15k shirts at £20 then we would get £300k with no repeat business each year. Even if we sold half the amount at £45 we would get c£340k in the first year plus new shirt sales each year.

I think the youth sizes start from age 6 - fits my 4yo fine if tucked in!

When I looked online they only ever showed ages from 10+, so I rang the shop and they said the smallest they do is 8-10 but it's always out of stock...

They definitely do smaller sizes as I've come very close to getting my 3 year old nephew one a few times this season and took him in the shop to try stuff on.

Hmmmm if that's the case they're made for pretty small 8-10yr olds! We got it when they were all dished out en masse at the start of the season in the South Stand for Season Ticket Holders; perhaps they do a limited run of smaller sizes for kids who have STs? Maybe @AdamB can help/point us in the right direction?

My son wears a 6 year old shirt and he's 5 and not a big lad. They don't make nearly enough of the smaller shirts though, have to get them early or miss out it seems.

Safe to say... you are better at match day threads than at running a merchandising business.

Are the 2016/17 kits still full price at the moment? When do they go down in price? Once the new one is released I assume? 

Could do with a new red top for my 6-a-side and a little one for my eldest.

That is one of the better ST advantages - the free kit for the kids. The 6YO kit worked fine for my youngest (at 5)

Perhaps that`s why our form picked up. `Right, we stay in the championship or you lot spend the summer sewing shirts together in Vietnam for £1.50 a day`

I really hope that silly hashtag experiment is ended for next season. Thank God the EFL refused to have it on our kit- imagine having #MakingBristolProud on our kits for all to see as we went on our record breaking losing run!
